15 Reasons For

Olympus Has Good Reviews for Its Cameras

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

Good Size

One Olympus VR-350 owner who bought the product wrote that it was compact. Steves-Digicams.com wrote on expert website Steve's Digicams “For 2012, Olympus has introduced three almost identical models in their V-Series line of compact, point-and-shoot digital still cameras; the VR-340, VR-350”.

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most frequently found sensor type on digital cameras of this type and age. 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.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other digital cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available including the PowerShot A4000[pl_1488638_price], or the PowerShot G12[pl_1514037_price] both from Canon or the Olympus VR-340[plb_1686246_price] which has better reviews.
