In April, Olympus will release its VR-330 compact camera, which will pack a massive 12.5x zoom and a 14-megapixel sensor. The new camera will be made of metal and be small enough to fit in your pocket.
Its lens will have a range of 24-300mm, which should make it perfect for travellers. In addition to a huge lens, the Olympus VR-330 camera will have the ability to capture 3D photos in any mode. The 3D photos in .MPO files which can then be played back on a 3D television or laptop.
Like most recent Olympus cameras, the VR-330 will feature Art modes, which Olympus has billed as 'Magic Art Filters' for this camera. They include Pop Art, Pin Hole, Fish-Eye, Soft Focus, Drawing, Punk and Sparkle filters.
See some of the Olympus Art filters in action in our picture gallery for the Olympus PEN E-P2 camera.
The VR-330 will have a sparse control layout with only essential menu buttons located on the rear next to the 3in LCD display, and a dedicated button for initiating HD video recordings.
Pricing for the new camera is yet to be set.
