Am playing catch up here, with submissions to my 'Re-Living The CCD Sensor' series, and for this week early images with the Olympus VR-350, a 16MP CCD sensor ultra-compact travel zoom fitted with an Olympus 10x optical zoom 4.2-42mm (24-240mm full frame equivalent) lens with 1:3~5.7 aperture opening. The camera is also fitted with a 3-inch 460,000-dot LCD screen. Designed to be simple and easy to use, it comes with a user interface that is well laid out and is quite intuitive even for the first-time user.

The camera is designed to be handy and practical, almost minimalist, looking cute and attractive in its anodized aluminum skin which is available in silver, black and purple. The front of the camera sports a flash strobe, focus assist lamp, and a tiny aperture for the microphone towards the bottom, and again, a minimalist finger grip.

Aside from the Power On and Shutter Release buttons on the top plate of the camera, the functionalities of the camera are mainly centered on the backplane. The most dominant component is the large 3-inch display with touch settings for menu display and setup, with a dedicated movie recording button, 5-way D-pad, and buttons for Menu, help, and playback on its right.

The camera is fun and easy to use, easily available on auction sites at giveaway prices, and if you are an enthusiast of vintage cameras with CCD sensors, this might be just the right one for you.
