Olympus VR-370 overview

  • 1Description

The black VR-370 Digital Camera from Olympus is a compact digital camera with a 16MP CCD sensor and the TruePic III+ Image Processor. It will create low-noise, color-accurate photos and clear HD 720p videos. Its 12.5x optical zoom lens is equivalent to a 24-300mm lens in the 35mm format. It provides focal lengths from wide-angle to super-telephoto and offers the possibility to capture images in almost any situation from group shots and interiors to landscapes, action shots and close-up portraits. A 3.0" LCD with 460k-dot resolution is available for composition and image playback and its anti-glare technology makes it possible to view your screen even in bright sunlight.

The VR-370 features a built-in flash, easy to use zoom and menu control, ergonomic grip design , and a dedicated one-touch video button which will switch you from photo mode to video in an instant. An AF Illuminator housed on the camera's front panel aids when shooting with Autofocus at close distances and increases illumination in low-light situations. Dual Image Stabilization also helps when shooting in low light. It combines Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization with High ISO Sensitivity to utilize fast shutter speeds and reduce the effect of camera shake for sharper images in dim light and when shooting at long telephoto focal lengths.

iAuto mode is available to let the camera read your scene and optimally adjust the camera's settings to match that scene. Scene selections include Sunset, Fireworks, Candlelight, Beach and Sport. Face Detection is also a helpful tool which recognizes when you are shooting people and automatically adjusts the camera for the ideal portrait exposure. And AF Tracking will follow a moving subject, like a pet or a child, and constantly adjust focus and exposure so the camera has the correct settings when you are ready to shoot. In addition to these assistive features, the VR-370 provides "Magic Art Filters" which allow you to add special effects to your images like Soft Focus, Watercolor Effect and Fish Eye. There are 10 filters in all and most are also available during video recording. Lastly, the VR-370 offers Beauty Mode which can apply Photoshop-like enhancements to your portraits, softening shadows and smoothing wrinkles. Beauty Make-Up Mode can even whiten teeth and add eye shadow after you have taken the picture.  

16MP 1/2.3" CCD Sensor
The 16MP sensor in the VR-370 provides richly colored, detailed images that can be blown up into large prints without losing clarity.
TruePic III+ Image Processor
The image processing engine on the VR-370 brings fast buffering and performance speeds and allows the camera to shoot both high resolution photos and HD video with accurate color and minimal noise.
12.5x Wide-angle Optical Zoom Lens
With a focal range that runs from 24-300mm in the 35mm format, the lens on the VR-370 provides shooting lengths from true wide-angle to super-telephoto. The wide-angle allows for group shots and expansive vistas and the telephoto lengths will bring distant subjects close. The Super-macro mode offers clear close-ups as near as 0.4" (1 cm). The maximum aperture at the wide-angle end is f/3.0 which will gather sufficient light for sharp low-light photography.
4x Digital Zoom
A 4x digital zoom function allows you to quadruple your zoom range to 50x for extreme close-ups.
720p HD Video with Dedicated Button
A one-touch button allows you to record videos in 720p high-definition right from your camera.
3.0" LCD Screen
This 3.0" LCD with 460k-pixel resolution features an extra-wide viewing angle and anti-glare technology for easier composing and shooting even in direct sunlight.
Shooting Modes
Shooting Modes include Intelligent Auto, Program Auto, Beauty Mode with Make-up, and PC Panorama.
Intelligent Auto and Scene Modes
In iAuto mode, the camera automatically detects the subject, lighting and focal length to identify the scene you're shooting and adjust the settings for ideal results. Scene Modes let you set your camera to provide the optimal adjustments for specific scene types. Modes include Portrait, Landscape, Night, Night + Portrait, Sport, Indoor, Candle, Self Portrait, Sunset, Fireworks, Cuisine, Beach & Snow, Documents and Pet.
ISO Range 100-1600
An ISO range up to 1600 offers accurate color reproduction and low-noise imaging even in low light situations.
Dual Image Stabilization
Dual Image Stabilization combines Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization with high ISO sensitivity to compensate for the blurring effects of camera movement providing you with clearer images when shooting in low light and at long telephoto lengths.
AF Illuminator
An LED Illuminator on the front of the camera enhances focus and exposure for macro shooting. The LED illuminator also works in conjunction with the flash to help illuminate your subject in low-light conditions.
Face Detection
Face Detection automatically recognizes your subjects' faces and optimizes exposure for sharp, brilliant portraits.
Shadow Adjustment Technology
Shadow Adjustment Technology compensates for shadowed areas to minimize the differences in highlight and shadowed areas resulting in more uniform exposure across the image. When used together with iAuto or Face Detection, the subject's face is shot with optimal exposure settings so that the face can be seen clearly even under strong back light conditions.
Autofocus Tracking
AF Tracking automatically tracks fast-moving subjects such as kids, pets and sporting events, and continuously adjusts the focus and brightness so you can capture these moments with ease.
PC Panorama Mode
Capture panoramic vistas all in one frame with the touch of one button, by simply panning the camera across the scene.
Magic Art Filters
Magic Art Filters add creative touches to photos and some are applicable to videos as well. Choose from Pop Art, Pin Hole, Drawing, Fisheye, Soft Focus, Punk, Sparkle, Watercolor, Miniature, and Reflection.
Playback Edit Effects
Make adjustments to your images after they have been shot. Effects include: Resize, Crop, Red Eye Fix and Shadow Adjustment.
Image Playback
Still Image Playback Options are Single, Index View, Enlargement and Slideshow. Video Playback Options are Still/Frame by Frame, Fast Forward, Rewind, Voice Playback

    Olympus VR-370 reviews

    VR-370 Digital Camera (Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple to operate,and capable I bought this camera for my wife, who is not a photo enthusiast. She mostly photographs the grand kids, and post a variety photos on her Facebook page. I narrowed the choices to this camera and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ3. The Lumix is more compact, has a higher ISO rating. The VR-370 has a larger, 2X higher resolution screen, larger zoom range, more flash range, and a lower cost. The menu system is simple, easy to use, and offers a wide range of options for a low cost point-n-shoot. Focusing in low light, especially at longer zoom settings, is a bit slow, but this is probably normal for a camera in the class.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would highly recommend this camera. This is the best little camera, it out preforms my $ camera. It's very easy to use, compact and does what I need it to do. My only problem is that the CD that it came with does not play in any of my devices. But I was able to figure out how to use it anyway. I made the right decission.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Small Camera I can't complain about this camera. For the price it's perfect for my use. The quality of the photographs are great. The only thing I can complain about is that the wrist strap doesn't have anything to slide and tighten around your wrist to prevent accidents. I solved this by twisting a hair tie over the strap to become the slider. I'm used to using a camera with a slight shutter delay so I can't really call it a con since I was prepaired to experience it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Olympus VR-370 This is the fourth Olympus VR-370 I bought for my family - for myself, my wife, my daughter and my grandson. It is reliable, has great resolution for an amateur camera and much more convenient on the road than a big professional one. I have known B&H as a trustworthy seller for many years. They offered VR-370 with all necessary accessories for the cheapest price on line. Buy it and enjoy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Point-and-Shoot Camera Bought this camera for a friend because my wife liked the one I bought for her so much. Very versatile with great zoom range. When turned off, lens retracts for extremely small form factor. Large, brilliant LCD display.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Travel Camera This was a gift for wife to replace her SLR with all its accessories when she travels. Excellent full-featured compact camera - she raves about it and I was impressed with display and interface.
