the best compact
I've got the camera this Christmas and I think one word describes it: AMAZING!!! I've captured some great pics with this baby and the 12.5 super wide zoom is great!!! The pics are very clear even the display can be viewed in sunlight because it is bright!! One thing I am disappointed with :the MICROPHONE. It is not clear but overall it's very good!!!

A Great Point and Shoot
I needed to replace a camera I dropped and was looking for something similar but found that Olympus offered a much better and less expensive camera for what I paid. I was impressed by the high-zoom levels and took some incredible night shots on full zoom with a tripod. It is a very flexible camera with all the settings and what I really like is the compact size and sure feel of the Olympus VR-320. The pictures are sharp and clear and they upload to my laptop no problem. The microphone when you are recording video is quite sensitive and clear. A great camera.

Another Winner from Olympus
I chose the VR-320 as I wanted a small very pocketable point and shoot and as I was extremely pleased with an SP800UZ I already owned, and having had many Olympus cameras in the past going back to the OM1 (35mm SLR), the product quality has always been excellent.
The VR-320 is no exception it has a good solid feel to it, the transition from my SP800UZ was easy, the controls being in much the same place, I was more than surprised to the features in the VR-320 in fact almost as many as the larger cameras, the zoom range for such a small camera is amazing, (I must confess to being a zoom junkie), picture quality as always with an Olympus camera, excellent.
I also liked the bundled software with the camera, I already use Olympus ib for downloading pictures but the cd contained an editing program called Olympus Viewer 2, must say I have been having a lot of fun with this program.
Overall very pleased with my purchase, another winner from Olympus.

After the lens was replaced my camera takes better pictures but still not as crisp as my old C-4000.
