Two new budget compacts from Olympus: the VG-130 and VG-120

The Olympus VG-130 and VG-120 are two new ‘all-round’ compacts from Olympus announced at CES 2011.

Each with a 14MP sensor and Digital Image Stabilisation, the VG-130 and VG-120 also offer 5x optical zoom (26-130mm equivalent), one-touch 720p movie recording and a 3in, 230k-dot LCD. Olympus’s Magic Filters are available to offer in-camera style shooting and easy point-and-shooting is possible thanks to the i-Auto mode that automatically selects the best mode for the scene at hand. The fully metal casing is the only feature that separates the VG-130 from the VG-120 model.

Available from mid-January both will be priced at under £100 – ideal for those on a budget.
