New Olympus 3D camera to feature 12.5x zoom, metal design

The new Olympus VR-330 compact digital camera will have a 24-300mm lens

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.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
