Accurate colors, Fast burst mode
The Olympus SZ-31MR iHS is a competent, feature-rich travel-zoom, but too few improvements have been made since the SZ-30 to earn our complete recommendation. Given this modelâ?? s problems with sharpness, distortion, and noise reduction, we think $400 is too much for the resulting image quality.
Noise is a separate issue, but as for sharpness and chromatic aberration, itâ?? s no secret why this is happening. If you frequent the site youâ??
Easy to grip
There are a few cameras on the market with a similar zoom level, but not as many that are as small the SZ-31MR. It is an ideal option if you are looking for a compact camera to take on your holidays. Images have excellent colour reproduction, except it doesn't cope well at taking portrait shots. It has a decent battery life, fast high-speed shooting and full 1080p HD video recording as well as a number of other useful features.
High resolution LCD screen, Full High Definition Movies
The Olympus SZ-MR31 is up against some pretty stiff competition in this category. It appears to be a good camera, but it does not really stand out, especially at the price. It is most likely to appeal to you if you are looking for a camera with extra lens power, but is quite easy to use.
An ultra-compact digital camera with an enormous zoom range and a complete metal body
The Olympus SZ-31MR is an ultra-compact digital camera with an enormous zoom range and a complete metal body. This Super Zoom camera is easy to operate with the clear and sensitive touch screen and has innovative functions, such as the iHS technologies and the Multi Recording function. The Olympus SZ-31MR also has an improved autofocus. Next to taking 16 Megapixel photos, there is also a 1080p Full HD video function available. Different photo modes allow for creativity.
Attractive all-metal body design
Like most of the fixed-lens Olympus cameras introduced at CES 2012, the VR-340 seems to be a minor update at best. Did the VR-320 really need a replacement? Only the market can decide. With slightly improved features and a lower price point, we can hardly complain, it's just not the most exciting news in the industry. Shooting with the VR-340 feels:okay. Not great, but passable.
Camera is easy to grip
The Olympus VR-340 is a pocketable camera with a decent zoom range, making it an ideal choice for taking pictures on your holidays. Image quality is OK, but nothing to get excited about and video recording isn't full 1080p HD, although you can use the magic filters. Colour reproduction is decent and if you are a camera user who struggles to grip a camera, the VR-340 is easy to grip thanks to the groove at the front.
Picture quality is good
The Olympus VR-340 may not be the most advanced digital camera, but you get a lot of zoom for your money. Picture quality is good for a camera in this price bracket and the longer lens gives you scope to cover most standard photo opportunities. It also has a couple of features that you do not expect to find at this price level. These include a metal body and the ability to recharge the battery via a USB computer connection.
Excellent image quality, Built for extreme conditions
If you participate in activities which will put your camera at risk of being dropped and have the extra cash available you are may be better off with the TG-820, which has a metal body, is crushproof to 100Kg and shockproof to 2m. Other than that, the TG-620 is much the same, with excellent image quality, full 1080p HD video recording and fast high-speed shooting.
