Summary: For £79.99 this is a great buy - can't agree with your review at all. If you want top quality images ay higher sensitivity settings, go buy an DSLR - this is designed for the point and shoot user who doesn't have the time, know how or inclination to adjust aperture/shutter/ISO settings etc.
Pros: Size, flash, internal battery charging, 3D option and price.
Summary: As with all Olympus cameras, the VG-170 doesn't disappoint with regards to form. It is a sleek and very compact camera with a very robust feel to it. As for function, I would say that it serves excellently as a point and shoot camera for social uses.
A no frills camera which is perfect for having in your pocket for days outs and walks.

Summary: I was looking for an inexpensive and easy to use camera for a relative as a gift and decided upon this. I had read reviews about how good value for money this was but was more concerned about the image quality. I have to say that I was quite surprised.
Summary: I only have the camera for a few days but so far it is very convenient and I love the photo quality! Definitely a very good deal for the money. Love the magic filters and the menu is super easy!
a fab compact camera with loads of clever surprise features
