15 Reasons For

Olympus Has Good Reviews for Its Digital Cameras

We calculated the average ratings for all Olympus cameras and also specifically for Olympus compact camera digital cameras and found that in both cases Olympus had good ratings compared to other manufacturers.

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most frequently found sensor type on compact camera digital cameras that have been around for more than two years. CCD sensors produce high quality, low-noise images but consume a lot more power than CMOS sensors. CCD is the most common image sensor type used in digital cameras.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other digital cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available including the GE J1455 which has better reviews.

3D Compatible

Unlike most of the other cameras of a similar spec and age to the VR-360 which are not 3D compatible, the Olympus VR-360 is 3D compatible.

There are a number of alternative 3D compatible cameras currently available which you might want to consider including the Canon PowerShot A3300 IS, or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ36 which has better reviews.

If you are looking for a camera with a better memory card type then you might also want to look at the Sony DSC-WX350 (£159.00) (MicroSD (TransFlash)|MicroSDHC|MicroSDXC|MS Duo|MS Micro (M2)|MS PRO Duo|MS PRO Duo HS|MS Pro-HG Duo|MS XC-HG Duo|SD|SDHC|SDXC) which also has a higher rating.
