Quicklinx: 7WZYWS00
Review this product


Full featured with a big 10x optical zoom, the VR-340 packs loads of technology into a small body. Whether it is shooting crystal clear photos or taking high-quality HD Video, you will never miss a moment. The magic art filter feature will let you capture creative shots, and the dual image stabilization means you will get a sharp shot in any situation.

Busy people don't plan photo sessions. Opportunities to capture special shots just happen and when they do, you need a camera that's easy to use, has a versatile lens and the full array of high-tech aids - to make sure you get the very best images you can. The VR-340 gives you just that - and it's beautifully designed, too. Powerful and flexible, a 10x super wide zoom lens (24-240mm*) is exceptional in this price category. Complementing the lens, the smart grip helps you hold steady when you're making full use of the zoom, while built-in Dual Image Stabilisation cuts out blur caused by imperceptible camera shake or fast-moving subjects. That's especially important when you want to capture an HD movie. No matter how bad (or good) a photographer you are, with 16 Megapixels, high ISO capability and a host of sophisticated electronic assistants like iAuto and AF Tracking, Olympus' trademark picture quality is virtually guaranteed.
