N ew Olympus VH-520 compact camera - If camera design were a sport, iHS would be doping. Fortunately there is nothing to stop Olympus taking a gorgeously slim compact like the Stylus VH-520 digital camera and packing it full of the low-light iHS technologies only normally found in much bigger cameras for three times the price. For sheer image quality, the new Olympus VH-520 compact camera is streaks ahead of the field. Its biggest performance boosters? The 14-megapixel CMOS sensor and a TruePic V processor originally developed for DSLR. Closely followed by the 26mm-260mm wide, 10x optical zoom lens and lens-shift image stabilisation for taking out blur. When it’s dark, ISO 6400 and HDR Backlight Adjustment are essential.

Olympus VH 520


Olympus VH-520 digital camera

For a Olympus camera measuring just 25.4mm from lens to radiant 3" LCD, the new VH-520 digital camera really has no right to components of this quality. Forget the gorgeous design, the sensibly laid-out controls (one-button movie recording) and Magic Filters for stills and Full HD movies. The real magic is in the 10x optical zoom, 26mm wide angle lens. By shaving down the lens set, Olympus were able to replace digital IS with mechanical. Combine that with the high-sensitivity, high-ISO capability of iHS, and you've got a Olympus compact camera that lets you shoot straight from the hip - bright and blur-free, in good or bad light.
