Full featured and with a big 10X optical zoom, the VR-310 packs loads of technology into a small body. The Magic Filter feature will let you capture creative shots, and the Dual Image Stabilization means you’ll get a sharp shot in any situation.



A big zoom that fits right in your pocket. The 10x zoom lets you get incredibly close to your subject while the 24mm wide-angle lens lets you zoom back for panoramas and group shots.


A simple, one-touch button allows you to record movies with amazing clarity in high-definition, right from your camera. HDMI output and control make playing back video on your HDTV a breeze.


Add style and artistic flair to your photos with Olympus’ Magic Art Filters. Joining Pop Art, Pin Hole, Drawing, Fish Eye, and Soft Focus are the new Punk, which creates a two tone image with a classic punk rock feel, Watercolor, which transforms images into frame-worthy paintings, and Sparkle, which adds a twinkle to your photos. (Effects vary by model.)


Zoom lenses from 3.6x to 36x let you get close to the action without taking a step. Wide-angle zoom lenses let you capture the entire image,whether it's a panorama, landscape, friends at a party or a family reunion.


The Digital Image Stabilization feature uses higher ISO and faster shutter speeds to capture sharp, blur-free images, even when you're chasing moving targets.



An amazing 14 million pixels in the high-resolution CCD create superior image quality. Create poster-sized prints without losing a single detail.


The 10x wide-angle (24mm) optical zoom lets you get closer to the action while the 24mm wide-angle lens lets you capture more in your shot.

3.0" LCD

This huge 3.0" LCD features an extra-wide viewing angle for easier composing and shooting.


A simple, one-touch button allows you to record movies with amazing clarity in high-definition, right from your camera.


Dual Image Stabilization combines Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization with high ISO sensitivity and fast shutter speeds to capture crisp, clear images in any situation.


The Intelligent Auto setting identifies the scene you're shooting -- portrait, landscape, night portrait, macro, or sport -- and adjusts the settings to optimize results.


AF Tracking automatically tracks unpredictable, fast-moving subjects such as kids and pets, and continuously adjusts the focus and brightness so you can capture these photogenic whirlwinds with ease.


Face Detection automatically focuses on your subjects' faces and optimizes exposure for sharp, brilliant portrait pictures.

Good camera for the money many features plus video

Nice camera, compact and easy to use. Beware of Olymus firmware download as it can lockup your camera and must be sent to factory for repair.

Did not work for me

Got this to upgrade from a different camera. The camera was okay, but difficult to share pictures once on my computer. I am returning this and will upgrade from the same company that I had before.

I have been very disappointed in this camera. I bought it because I felt Olympus was a very good brand. I no longer feel that way. The physical quality of the camera is good, but the image quality is poor. Many images are fuzzy, and it seems that Image Stabilization is non existent. My wife feels most pictures are too "flat", no sense of depth. Pictures taken with the flash tend to be under or overexposed, maybe a third leave me feeling it is a good exposure.The panorama feature and the very close up feature are good.

This camera ia difficult to use!

I have been a photographer for 60 years and find that this point & shoot camera is not "human friendly". It is complicated and convoluted to use. Olympus has made easier products to use and I have owned and used them (4 or 5) over the years. That is the reason I chose the current camera.
