olympus_VR320_Front_BLUE_550.jpgThe first model we've seen with a "VR" label, the VR-320 is yet another compact super-zoom camera from Olympus for 2011. This unit offers several of the features found on the SZ-10, with a slightly shorter zoom range (12.5x compared to 18x), and a more compact body.  The 12.5x optical zoom lens offers an appealing zoom range, covering an equivalent field of view from 24-300mm. Olympus also includes their Dual Image Stabilization system to help reduce blur in your photos. 

Other key features include 14-megapixels of resolution, a 3.0-inch LCD screen, Intelligent Auto, Magic Art Filters, AF tracking, in-camera help guide, and 720p HD video capture.
