The Olympus VR-370 comes with a 16 MP sensor and offers 12.5x optical zoom in addition to a focal length of 24-30 mm and 35 mm equivalent. The camera offers a dual image stabilization system, which is capable of supporting sharpness in virtually every environment and sports a 3-inch display with 460 000 pixels.

The VR-370 will be available in black, silver, red and blue.

The other new camera is the VG-180. This one also comes with a 16 MP sensor but offers just 5x of optical zoom and a focal length of 26-130 mm in 35 mm equivalent.
