Olympus VR-310 Point & Shoot Digital Camera Black - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

Olympus has a serious knack of pricing its devices much too aggressively than any of its counterparts, it just loads the devices with specifications that no other company is able to at the given price range, and still manages to earn good profit on the outcome. We will give you an example, one of the cheapest digital cameras that money can buy; the Olympus VR 310 is a new 14megapixel travel zoom camera that seems definitely more worth than the every ounce you pay for it. It features 10x optical zoom (shocked, aren’t you?) and a decent versatile focal range that measures 24mm at wide angle end, which is highly respectable and 240mm at the telephoto end, which is again very well done at 35mm equivalent. Also, on the list of features it offers is a dual image stabilisation, 720p HD movie capture, 3-inch LCD screen, a 1cm super macro mode, range of Magic Filters, auto-focus tracking and Intelligent Auto Mode. The Olympus VR-310 is very flamboyant too when it comes to color combinations, with the available combinations being Silver, Red, Black and Purple.

Well, all that been said, you might now be thinking that for a price tag like the one listed, it is seriously the ideal camera to buy at the entry level Point & Shoot range and yes, up to some extent that is true, but every camera has its flip side, and this is a very significant one in our device with the biggest letdown being the most basic feature of the camera - the image quality. And yes, it will be a little wiser if you spend a little more, unless you are looking at it as a short term investment, or you want to gift it to your teenage daughter or your grandparents to play around for or you just need to keep it for yourself, if you have a knack for high telephoto end zoom pictures. But what needs to be understood before that is Olympus VR-310 is no star performer and you only get what you pay for. As we mentioned in the opening lines, yes, aggressive pricing and big zoom is definitely a lethal combination and all that praise is just left on paper, but the truth is, it does not perform that brilliantly in real life. Unfortunately, the pictures are just lined up as a hit and a miss and this is one camera on which we cannot comment firmly. Yes, it is good for the little pricing, but seriously, who wants to settle with just good, right? The positives however with this device are that the camera is highly easy to use, and has a very good focal length, there are some in built digital filters and a simple yet, very well approachable layout. 
 

Design and Build Quality

The camera at the first look looks the same as its elder brother Olympus VR-320 that only means that it too can make enough claims to be just 19.3mm at the slimmest point, which is very impressive indeed. Now the camera is finished in metal rather than in the expected body at this price range, it is really comfortable to use and fits in the hand pretty well or will just easily glide down the pocket, the very best that it can do. One of the best things about Olympus VR-310 is the Program shooting mode, now the default setting in this camera is definitely the scene. There is no physical mode dial provided inside the device for instant access with a twist of the hand, which definitely would have made the selection a lot more easier.

Focus and Face Detection

To our delight, the Olympus VR-310 sports a very efficient Face detection technology that can recognize 9 faces in a frame and will focus on the one nearest to it, the default setting for program shooting mode in the device is the scene and when you talk about the AutoFocus of the device, the most important one is the subject recognizing iAuto that clearly incorporates AF tracking alongside the Olympus Shadow Adjustment technology. This and all the other modes selected from the very top of the toolbar come running down when pulled down the right side of the screen.

Lens and Image Stabilization

Though the twin devices that is, Olympus VR-310 and Olympus VR-320 are almost identical in looks and one can identify the particular one by the small printed model number which is carved on the top plate and the base of the camera, leaving aside the price, the chief difference in the cameras comes in this department. Olympus VR-320 prices just slightly above the reviewed device that sports 12.5x optical zoom, and our reviewed device makes do with a decent 10x zoom. This 10x makes up a 35mm equivalent to 24mm at the wide-angle end and 240 mm at the telephoto end. Hence, this makes up sort of an entry level “travel zoom” or a “compact superzoom.” Then again, the dual image stabilisation feature very well supports this with the light sensitivity setting ranging amidst ISO80 and ISO1600.

Screen and Menus

We know that the camera is available in the color combinations of Silver, Black, Red, or Purple, now the photos and the 720p HD videos can very well be composed by the help of the 3-inch, entry level resolution of  230,000 dots screen with a default aspect ratio of 4:3, the screen is obviously LCD. Once again, there is the availability of many digital filters in the device that we heard lot of times before. You can very well choose from Punk, Pop Art, Pin Hole, Drawing, Fish Eye, Soft Focus, and new addition Sparkle, adding twinkling reflections to shiny objects. The images can be saved pretty easily on the SD and SDHC cards, a slot for which we have in the battery over the base of the device.

 

Battery

Olympus VR 310 derives all its power from the Li-Ion battery that is labelled as LI-4B and is listed to work for 190 shots at CIPA conditions. There is definitely no mains charger which has been supplied with Olympus VR-310 but then there is a mains adapter with a plug involved and a USB cable which means that the battery has to be charged inside the camera at almost all times. It also quite means that just like Olympus VR-320, the camera can also be very well charged with the help of a USB port, not just via the help of mains. We also have a standard AV lead, but yes, there is no HDMI port to offer, and somehow that is not very surprising.

Video Mode

Although not really convenient on this device, we know that, the video recording still manages to get its own folder when amongst the six offered black plate “menu” button is pressed. Now this menu button controls all the image size, image stabilisation, frame rate, and sound during the recording of the video. The very best video quality that is offered on the device is full HD 720p recording. Then there is the VGA recording that is 480p and the QVGA 240p recording options available all of which are available in 30fps rate.  

Sensors

The sensor is pretty much one of the most important parts of a camera, it is basically a transducer and is able to convert all the optical pixels into electronic signals and sends it further down the device for all the processing work to be continued. 14megapixels 1/2.3 inch CCD image sensor is what powers our reviewed camera, the Olympus VR-310.

Pros

·         Extremely cheap for 10x optical zoom

·         Focus distance of just 1cm allows for great macro images

·         Good range of Scene Modes and Magic Filters

Cons

·         Noise levels even at lowest ISO

·         No optical zoom with sound on videos

Amazing - for Lesser Price
by Satya Tippani on 2012-06-01
