Olympus VG-120 overview

  • 1Description

This VG-120 Digital Camera (Silver) from Olympus is the one digital camera to have if you're only going to have one: it takes beautiful 14MP photos and dazzling 720p HD video with its 5x wide-angle 26-130mm (equivalent) zoom lens. Using the brilliant 3" LCD monitor with 230K dots of resolution, you can compose and view photos, knowing that the dual image stabilization and light sensitivity up to 1600 ISO will chase away those blurry-picture blues.

There are Magic Filters (8 of them) to help you find your inner artist: you can choose Pop Art, Pinhole, Fisheye, Drawing, Soft Focus, Punk, Sparkle, or Watercolor.

There are also 25 shooting modes that will give you the optimal settings for almost any common photographic situation. All in a petite body that's less than 4" wide, only 3/4" thick, and weighs less than 4.5 oz.

14 Megapixels
An amazing 14 million pixels in the high-resolution CCD create superior image quality. Create poster-sized prints without losing a single detail.
5x Wide-Angle Optical Zoom
You'll never leave anyone out. With its 5x optical zoom you can get dramatically close to the action, or zoom out wide and capture everyone and everything in sight.
3" LCD Monitor
This huge 3" LCD features an extra-wide viewing angle and anti-glare technology for easier composing and shooting even in direct, bright sunlight.
One-Touch HD Movie
With One-Touch HD Movie you can record widescreen, crystal clear HD movies (720p) right from your camera.
Dual Image Stabilization
Dual Image Stabilization combines Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization with high ISO sensitivity and fast shutter speeds so you can capture crisp, clear images even if the subject is moving.
Intelligent Auto
The Intelligent Auto setting identifies the scene you're shooting -- portrait, landscape, night portrait, macro, or sport -- and adjusts the settings to optimize results.
Auto Focus Tracking
AF Tracking automatically tracks unpredictable, fast-moving subjects such as kids and pets, and continuously adjusts the focus and brightness so you can capture these photogenic whirlwinds with ease.
Face Detection
Face Detection tracks up to 16 faces and automatically focuses and optimizes exposures for sharp, brilliant portrait pictures.
Magic Filter Still & Movie
Add style and artistic flair to stills and movies with Olympus' Magic Art Filters. Joining, Pop Art, Pin Hole, Drawing, Fish Eye, and Soft Focus are the new Punk, which creates a two-tone image with a classic punk rock feel, Watercolor, which transforms images into frame-worthy paintings, and Sparkle, which adds a twinkle to your photos. (Effects vary by model)
In-Camera Help Guides
And if you feel the need for a little extra advice, the camera's on-board Help Guides will briefly describe the camera's features and settings at the touch of a button.
