Overall Review

Olympus VG-160 Point & Shoot is perhaps one of the finest entry level point and shoot camera, especially appealing to the daily life photographers. The camera comes with a 14 megapixel high resolution CCD sensor that works great to give you high quality picture. A 5x optical zoom, with an impressive 26 mm wide angle, the lens is very sufficient to capture large landscapes. The camera is compact and can easily be carried due to its light weight, but that does not make it short of features. For its price the camera is filled with fun features, to start off with the IAuto (Intelligent Auto) which automatically identifies about 30 different sceneries and optimizes the settings, the AF tracking feature that maintains focus, the Face Detection feature which detects about 16 faces, the 6-pre set white balancing options, the unique and creative Magic Filter effects that include Pop art, Pin hole, Fish eye, Soft focus, Water color, Spark or punk and many other features. The camera is quick in its performance and due to its Digital Image Stabilization system maintains to keep pictures clear and great. You can also take Panorama shots and even self shots, with the help of self timer. The camera is surprisingly available for continuous high speed shooting and also HD video recording. The pictures and videos can be reviewed back from the 3 inch LCD screen.

Design and Build Quality

The camera comes only in silver, black, red and even orange and at a very reasonable price especially for first timers. With that the camera looks exactly as what a Point and Shoot camera should look like, it’s light and easy on the eye.  The camera is super slender with dimensions 96 (w) X 56.5 (h) X 19.3 (d) mm hence, pocket able and easy to carry. The weight adds to its design specialty, with just 125 grams i.e. batter and memory card included, the camera is a joy in bags and pockets to have. The 3 inch LCD screen graces the rare, with the navigation buttons to its right that is home to the 4 way button, the menu, zoom and the dedicated movie button. The power button is traditionally put on a convenient finger reach on its top. While the lens rests up in front. The camera is study, light and pretty.


Focus and Face Detection

The camera has an automated AF tracking feature, sharp in capturing fast paced photo subjects especially animals or kids. The system automatically works to unceasingly adjust the brightness and focus settings so to take natural looking and better photos even in shaky conditions. There is also the Intelligent Auto scene mode, this too works automatically to bring about the best settings according to your targeted environment after it selects the best scene settings you are shooting, it can vary from a simple portrait or macro or a large landscape. This feature’s best for amateurs and alike to worry less about the technicalities and work for themselves. Face detection feature is also a given, as its name suggest the camera recognizes the face and maintains focus. Olympus VG-160 Point & Shoot can detect up to 16 faces within one frame and then automatically fix the best exposure and brightness for clear and vivid photos. There is also a self-timer mode that gives the photographer 2 to 12 seconds before it clicks. This feature is a compliment to both Intelligent Auto Scene mode and Face Detection. 


Lens and Image Stabilization

For Olympus VG-160 Point & Shoot, it comes with a brilliant 5x optical zoom lens with a 26 mm – 130 mm wide angle, a focal length of 4.7 – 23.5  and a RGB color filter. There is an additional 4X digital zoom to the camera, making sure you get the entire action in one frame.

14 megapixels is a commendable job done by Olympus. This is a high resolution CCD image sensor. This is a good deal for a point and shoot camera, the pictures can be cropped or printed with least damage to the picture’s integrity. All features vouch for the sensor’s brilliance, and the continous mode in the Olympus VG-160 Point & Shoot specially, it shoots about 20 images at a 10 frames per second rate and even 200 images with 2.3 fps in high speed mode.

3. Friendly Size
4. Large Clear LCD


1. A tad too complicated with the controls

2. Image quality could have been better
