Olympus VG-170 Digital Camera Review

Buy-n-Shoot.com
22 May 2012
  • Conclusion: Whilst this camera may have a few annoyances it must be remembered where this camera sits it terms of price (RRP). The flash is an absolute standout and will give great results when shooting groups of people at night. The 3D mode is interesting and worth the cameras price alone if its your thing and the 3” LCD is of a very good size.

What Digital Camera
11 April 2012
  • Summary: At just £99.99, the VG-170 has enough clever kit, filters and features to make it an appealing-looking camera for those on a tighter budget. But if image quality, finer detail and tougher build are your bag, look elsewhere.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, Flash power, 3D shooting mode, Ease of use
  • Cons: Picture quality, Image noise, Video performance, Build

  • Conclusion: For beginners who want a raft of quirky features and ease of use and aren't concerned about ultimate image quality, the Olympus VG-170 is a great choice. For everyone else, the slightly flawed image quality means that other similarly priced cameras might make a better choice.

  • Conclusion: When writing reviews it is not always easy to come up with a long list of reasons to buy a camera. That is true of the Olympus VG-170. It does a lot of things well without standing out from the competition. It takes sharp looking photos and you should find this camera very easy to use. Apart from the photos lacking vivid colours there is not a lot to dislike.

Olympus VG-170

  • Excerpt: The first thing we thought of when we saw the Olympus VG-170 was "look at the size of that flash!" It dominates the front of the camera even more than the large lens barrel that houses the 5x optical zoom. On the white model that we had for review, the lens remains black, which is unusual but not bad looking. In fact it's a nice little camera to look at. Next to the lens is a small, leatherette grip to hold onto when shooting or carrying the camera between shots.

  • Conclusion: Si eres el encargado de siempre tomar las fotos en las reuniones familiares, o buscas una cámara para tomar fotos en tu próximo viaje sin que ocupe mucho espacio, esta cámara es ideal.
  • Pros: El precio es bastante bueno tomando en cuenta las funciones de la cámara. Cuenta con modo para fotografías 3D.
  • Cons: El zoom óptico es limitado y los materiales de plástico con los que está construida la exponen a los golpes que pudieran dañarla.

  • Conclusion: L'écran 17 pouces TFT de Viewsonics présente une bonne qualité d'image et des performances suffisantes pour des applications rapides. Bien qu'il soit équipé de deux haut-parleurs de 3 watts, le contrôle ne peut se faire que de manière analogique.
