Display

Average Display Diagonal

At 3 inches, the Olympus VR-360 has a fairly typical display diagonal compared to most of the other cameras that were launched around the same time as this camera.

There are a number of alternative 3" screen cameras currently available which you might also want to look at including the Sony SLT-A35Y + DT 18-55mm + DT 55-200mm, the Nikon L120, or the Canon SX150 IS which has better reviews.

If you are looking for a larger display diagonal then you might want to look at the Canon 240 HS (3.2"), or the Nikon Df (£2,039) (3.2") which also has a higher rating.

The Olympus VR-360 does not have a GPS (satellite), although this is within the context that most of the other medium megapixel digital cameras that are a comparable age to this camera also do not have a GPS (satellite).

Alternative digital cameras which also have a GPS (satellite) that you might want to look at include the 200, or the SAMSUNG WB850F both from Samsung or the Sony HX100V which is also higher rated.

The Olympus VR-360 does not support Wi-Fi, unlike most of the other medium megapixel digital cameras that have been around for more than two years which support Wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in alternative digital cameras which also support Wi-Fi including the Samsung 200, or the Fujifilm X-M1 (£349).

Video

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The Olympus VR-360 does not support Full HD video, although it is worth noting that most of the other cameras of this age and spec also do not support Full HD video.

We compared this camera to all the other digital cameras with a Full HD video and we think the SLT-A35Y + DT 18-55mm + DT 55-200mm, or the SLT-A57Y both from Sony or the Olympus OM-D E-M10 is also worth considering.

1280 X 720 Pixels Video Resolution

The highest video resolution supported by the Olympus VR-360 is 1280 x 720 pixels. That's over three times the video resolution of a 640 x 480 pixels camera, which is the most frequently found video resolution supported by digital cameras that have been available for a similar time to this digital camera. 640 x 480 pixels is also supported by this digital camera. A video resolution of 1280 x 720 is classified as HD and TVs supporting this resolution are referred to as "HD Ready". However the resolution is not as detailed as Full HD (1920 x 1080). The worst video resolution of all comparable spec digital cameras that were released more than two years ago is 320 x 120 pixels and the best is 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Lens System

Average Digital Zoom

At 4 times zoom factor, the Olympus VR-360 has a pretty typical digital zoom compared to most of the other cameras of this spec and age.

We compared all the other 4x digital zoom cameras to this digital camera and we think because of it's better review score, the L120, and the L31 both from Nikon or the Canon SX150 IS is also worth considering.

Average Optical Zoom

At 12.5 times zoom factor, the Olympus VR-360 has a relatively average optical zoom compared to most of the other medium megapixel digital cameras that came out around the same time as this digital camera.

If you would prefer a camera with a bigger optical zoom then you might want to look at the Nikon Coolpix S8200 (14x and higher rated), or the GE X5 (£55) (15x and higher rated).
