Over all Review of Olympus VG 130

Olympus VG 130 Price

Overall Review

Olympus VG-130 is an affordable compact digi-cam with an all metal body capable of taking good quality color photograph. Featuring a 14 megapixel sensor and 5x wide zoom lens, together that lets you take some very interestingly nice photographs. Though the purple fringing at times and the inconsistent white balancing makes one think twice about buying it, there are other features that make it shine. Like the set of Magic filters, an impressive 3 inch LCD screen, the ability to take decent close up macro shots, a handy panorama assist mode and not forgetting the HD movie recording ability, that is with an easy access to the dedicated movie button. It’s a camera you can carry around in your hand and not be bothered about a camera bag whatsoever, very ideal for new buyers that are monitoring the market for a camera that’s pocket friendly. The camera is available in a ravishing color palate choice: Silver, Black, Red and Pink.

Design and Build Quality

The camera is designed rather on a minimalistic scale, thus is very simple. With an eloquent full metal body, so impressive for the budget it comes with, Olympus VG 130 is a very small compact camera that will fit with ease in your pockets. To be exact it weighs only 125 grams and dimensions are as followed: 96mm x 56.5mm x 19.3mm. The buttons are soft to the fingers and easy to press with some dedicated ones, like movie recording and the zoom controls that lie on the back of the camera rather than mostly found around the shutter button, which has been put along with a on/off button. The lens sits on the front, with two pinpricks showing a built-in microphone, a flash and AF assist lamp. The rear comprises of a 3-inch LCD screen too.

Focus and Face Detection

There are three major focusing modes: Auto focus, Face Detection and Spot Focusing. Zooming to focus does take a little time but the result is satisfactory. The lens can minimally focus as close as 7cm, which is not as remarkable as one would think. The face detection feature makes it possible to have the subject of the picture be the highlight, so take your portraits or call in a group, the camera will definitely keep an eye to make sure your faces look the most vibrant in any picture.

Lens and Image Stabilization

The lens to Olympus VG 130 almost occupies all the right half of the face plate of the camera. It zooms a good 5X that spans 35mm in its equivalent focal range of 26 mm – 130 mm, going wider than most compact camera lenses you’d find, setting it thus apart and giving its buyer an impressive appeal. The maximum aperture goes to a swift speed of f/2.8 at the wide end but a little sluggish at full telephoto f/6.5. The camera does have a Digital Image Stabilization mode, DIS for short. When you work with the camera you’ll see the camera picks up on a high ISO speed and attempts to eliminate motion blur caused by handshaking, especially in low light situations. Critically thought there is no optical or mechanical image stabilization.

Screen and Menus

On the back of the camera you’ll find a 3 inch LCD screen with a 230k dot resolution gracing it. The resolution is on bit of a low side of the display but it works feasibly well for us to complain. As for the menu system, Olympus camera shares the easy to use menu and Olympus VG 130 is no different. When you switch the camera on you find yourself cycling left or right into the shooting menus. Once in your acquired mode you change the settings by the up and down button. The menu’s features are well labeled and easy to understand. Though the camera glitches if you move too quickly around the menu.

Battery

The camera starts up within a few seconds once its turned on and is also fairly quick in terms of focusing, though there is no CIPA rating given for the battery life. Once in your hand you’ll last an estimate of 220 shots on a full charge. The camera is powered by replaceable LI-70B lithium ion battery which is to be charged by an in camera via the USB and a given USB-AC adapter that plugs in a wall. The camera is compatible with SD and SDHC cards and shares its compartment with the battery itself.

Video Mode

With the red Movie Record button you can record at any given time. The camera can record movies at different resolutions of 1280 x 720 (HD) at 30 and 15 fps, 640 x 480 (VGA) or 320 x 240 pixels (OGVA). The ability to optically zoom in is available but you have to turn the audio off prior to recording. If you desire audio within video, you’ll have to rely on digital zoom. Videos are compressed by the use of Motion JPEG codec and saved on a AVI container, no matter what the capacity of the memory card the maximum size you can save is 2 gigabytes.

Sensors

Operating with a 1/2.3 inch 14 megapixel CCD sensor,the camera takes well exposed images with a vibrant color efficiency. A little lack shows when you take photos from the wide angle and purple fringes may appear but that does not affect a great the overall sharpness of a picture. Mixing a highly unusual and tremendously versatile 5x lens zoom to a high-resolution sensor housed in a metal body, the Olympus VG-130 is one of the more interesting credit card sized cameras around. Add to this the seven entertaining "magic filters" that can add some creative flair to your photos, and you have in your hands a very net little digicam that by the looks of it, looks highly attractive to anyone who is considering to trade up from a simple basic 3x zoom compact. On the other hand, the VG-130 isn't exactly a speed demon, especially when it comes to focusing, This now means that it is not neccessarily well suited for mods of shooting moving subjects or for capturing the fleeting moments. It is however very unfortunate that it is not really the best in image quality too, 14 Megapixels sure does sound like a hell lot of resolution, but the actual images taken by the camera tend to lack the kind of fine detail you would expect from a sensor with so many pixels. More so despite with a minimum focusing distant of 7 cm the macro pictures you get are pleasing. In al with the budget friendly camera like this, all this add up to being a very nice buy.

Pros

Excellent value for money
Full metal body
Good colour reproduction
Well detailed images

Cons

Purple fringing quite common
Inconsistent white-balance performance
Close focusing distance is 7cm

Olympus VG 130 is an easy on the wallet compact digital camera, safe to say an ideal buy for new camera enthusiasts. Its entire body is metal yet the weight at approx. 125 grams shows how light in the hand it will be. The camera features an interestingly satisfactory 14 megapixel CCD sensor with a 5X wide zoom lens. On one look everything will look as it does in an ordinary compact camera, with the lens up front aiding the flash and screen gracing the back, in this case a 3 inch LCD screen with a 230K dot resolution which performs rather well in all conditions, even in cases you find yourself under the sun. One more remarkable feature to the lens is its 26 mm – 130 mm focal range, making it stand out than what in this class is available in the market. With three major focusing modes ( Auto, Spot and Face detection) the camera does well, especially with the face detection technology that most novices will appreciate. The closest the lens can go is 7 cm, which is a bit of a setback but the picture quality is satisfactory. To ensure clarity and vividness, the camera has in it a Digital Image Stabilization mode. In the camera there’s also a dedicated Movie recording button, for quick access. At a 15 and 30 fps rate the camera can capture HD 1280 x 720 resolution videos, with other resolutions including 640 x 480 pixels (VGA) or 320 x 240 pixels (QVGA). To top that, you can optically zoom in as you record, but there is no audio option for videos. Olympus VG 130 sports in silver, black, red and pink, and also a few cons, the camera is often experienced to show some purple fringing and inconsistent white balance performance, making it a little off beat. Considering how good other features in it are, it’s quite sad the camera has such unavoidable flaws to it. In conclusion, a camera of such money value is to be let off t he hook for such setbacks and embraced for its better. The good color reproduction, well detailed images and an excellent look to it, the camera is worth considering and betting your money on. The camera charges via a USB cable and although under no given CIPA rating, Olympus VG 130 cant last for a good 220 shots, making it one point more amazing.
