My Olympus VG-110 Point and Shoot camera

The first time I held in my hands the small Olympus VG-110 camera as a replacement for my Samsung ES30, I thought the photos it can take will all be grainy and matte'd. Spending more time with it, I am now a satisfied user of this ultra compact camera! It can take sports photos (I used the Image Stabilization) or sports setting, which requires multiple shots with the Samsung, I bought the camera at U.P. Clark at Photoline, and I am disappointed that the sales lady removed the factory warranty card(hey! it belongs to you) and the USB cable with a line filter (the one with a cyclinder). (I came back this noontime and I am amazed the usb cable with a line filter is NOT REALY availlable. But the manufacturer's manual says it is provided!) The camera kit set me back at 4995 pesos.

I will explore more this camera and will publish links to albums of photos taken with it. Specification data taken from

official site. .
