Olympus VG-130


$139.00 Released January, 2011

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Solid metal build. Minimalistic design. Fast F/2.8 aperture on the wide end - good for use in lower light situations, capable of isolating subjects.

The Cons:Slow F/6.5 aperture at full telephoto - poor in low light. Low resolution 230K pixel display. Lacks manual functionality - no shutter priority, aperture priority or full manual modes.

  Olympus' VG-130 is an entry-level point-and-shoot digital camera and it has identical features to the VG-120 model with the exception that this one has a full metal body and is available in a different range of colours.

The VG-140 is in a similar boat: it has identical features to this model, but was initially released in Canada and comes in different colours. This camera has 720p video capture, a 14-megapixel sensor and 5x optical zoom. Two useful shooting features are "intelligent auto" that automatically detects which preset scene selection to use, and autofocus tracking which helps keep fast-moving subjects in focus. Another feature is an internal filter program that can apply stylized filters to images or video after they're taken. There are also built-in help guides that appear onscreen if desired. It uses a rechargeable battery and has a card slot for SD and SDHC cards.
