For less than £100 the thinking will be 'you can't go wrong' when it comes to the Olympus VR-310. And up to a point that's true. Unfortunately when it's image quality letting a camera down, it might actually be the wiser move to...

Mit der VR-310 bietet Olympus eine extrem günstige Reisezoom-Kamera mit vergleichsweise umfangreicher Ausstattung an. Das Gehäuse, obwohl aus Kunststoff, macht einen guten Eindruck. Das 10fach-Zoom deckt die Brennweite von 24mm-Weitwinkel...

International Review By Les Numériques on 40

L'Olympus VR-310 n'apporte rien de mieux que ses prédécesseurs ; pire, la gestion du bruit régresse et la balance des blancs est parfois instable. Il n'a pas vraiment de concurrence à ce prix, mais on trouve bien mieux...

Die Olympus VR 310 mit dem flachen Gehäuse passt in jede Tasche, dank ihrer einfachen Bedienung gelingen auch Einsteigern spontane Schnappschüsse – eine Kompaktkamera mit gutem...
