VG-170

Rating: no rating

Lowest Price: £29.99

The Olympus VG-170 has a flash that's nearly twice as powerful as on regular compact cameras, which means it can light up faces and objects up to 15 metres away. In Long Flash Mode, it automatically adjusts ISO sensitivity to make sure your camera is set up just right for low light. Also features a 14 Megapixel sensor, a 5x wide optical zoom, big 3in LCD and a host of automatic features and effects in a slim, stylish body with sturdy retro design.
