The Olympus VR-340 is small enough to fit into larger pockets. The big attraction is likely to be the 10x zoom on offer in such a small camera. It also scores highly for easy of use. So if you are looking for a digital camera that is straightforward and also offers a fair amount of zoom power the VR-340 could be the right camera for you.
In terms of price the VR-340 comes in at the cheaper end of the market. When you take the price into consideration you get some impressive features for your money. The 3 inch LCD screen is large for a camera in this price bracket and you also have the ability to shoot High Definition movies. There are plenty of megapixels (16) to make large prints or crop your photos if you wish to.
The VR-340 has a metal body and has a 3D photography mode. Image stabilisation has been built in and the battery can be charged via a USB port. The VR-340 is also compatible with Eye-Fi memory cards. These allow wireless transmission of your photos.
