Olympus Imaging India Private Limited, one of the world’s leaders in opto-digital technology, launched the stylish, compact and portable VH-520 digital camera. One of it’s new releases under the Stylus range, it reiterates what the Olympus Imaging India Managing Director has said about a camera being a family product and a style statement, not just a gizmo for geeks. The VH-520 features a point and shoot facility and includes iHS, a cutting-edge technology that combines the powerful TruePic image processor, a 14MP CMOS sensor to realize intelligent, high-speed and high-sensitivity performance (this is what ‘iHS’ stands for) along with a 20x super resolution zoom for capturing fantastic details at a distance. It has a lens that can zoom 10x with high clarity and minimal blur to capture memorable moments and moving objects. Commenting on the launch, Mr. Kenichiro Mori, the Managing Director of Olympus Imaging India Private Limited, commented, “This launch is mainly focused to keep with our core product strategy of combining style with technology”, thus justifying the stylishness and the colour variants of the VH-520 digital camera. The camera is not only chic but also features an advanced multi-motion Movie Image Stabilization which allows you to take distortion-free movies when recording 1080p full HD videos. Among the other features, the camera is known for its high quality pictures and magic filters which add oomph value to the pictures and movies. The large 3” screen display for easy framing, captures razor-sharp photographs by taking multiple images at different exposure settings which is possible only because of a hand-held starlight mode along with flash. The camera also features advanced face detection, tagging upto 8 faces and the AF Tracking device which helps memorise subjects when they are out of the frame and resume tracking once it reappears. The camera is thus ideal for capturing that elusive smile, that first word and that feeling of love, which can then be cherished forever.
This function helps to avoid image blur and shake caused when the camera is moved even a little while capturing a picture. It has a sensor which detects camera movement and adjusts the image sensor or lens accordingly.
iHS stands for intelligence, high-speed and high-sensitivity performance.
The iHS processor helps deliver better quality pictures with less noise for improved image detailing, especially in low-light situations. The iHS technology makes sure you capture exactly the shot you want. Like iAuto, that automatically selects high-sensitivities for blur-free photos at night. The CMOS Sensor is ideal for capturing indoor and night scenes as it delivers excellent images in low light, with less noise and more detail in dark areas. The TruePic V processor powers rapid autofocus and a start-up time in split seconds that helps you capture beautiful shots whenever you are ready.

With a flash light to the person, beautiful photography is possible when shooting both night scenes and low light photographs..
