Review: Olympus Stylus VH-520

Need an affordable camera with a good zoom range which will fit into your pocket?

The new Olympus Stylus VH-520 might just fit the bill.

It packs a 14-megapixel CMOS image sensor with a 10x optical zoom (26 to 260mm) lens in a body that is only 25.3mm thick and weighs just 148g.

Yet, it is equipped with Multi Motion image stabilisation mechanism to prevent camera shake when you shoot full high-definition videos.

The VH-520 is also equipped with Beauty Mode, which pretties up your subjects in photo or video mode.

The camera is available in four colours: black, white, red and purple.
