The specification list and look of the Olympus VG-160 certainly aren't going to impress many photographers. Everything about this camera's look screams budget-priced under performer However, if you're someone who needs to shop for a camera in the...

Recent price drop makes VG-160 a good value ; Easy-to-use camera has only basic features ; Very thin design ; VG-160's features compare pretty well to other sub-$100 cameras ; 3.0-inch LCD is nice to find in a low-priced model ; Image quality with...

Focus is a bit soft almost any time the lighting in the scene isn't ideal ; Camera's shot-to-shot delays are disappointing ; Small image sensor paired with 14MP of resolution limits overall image quality ; 5x optical zoom lens is below average in...

Excellent Product for the Price

 

I did a lot of searching before settling on this camera. I wanted certain minimum options and abilities, which this camera had. I have to say that my first real camera being an Olympus when I was younger added to the appeal.
