Olympus Stylus VH-515: 40 facts and highlights

1. megapixels

2. sensor size

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.

3. continuous shooting at high resolution

Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.

4. weight

5. maximum light sensitivity

With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.

6. video recording

7. Has WiFi

The device can connect to WiFi.

8. fastest shutter speed

A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.

9. pixel density

10. width

14. has AF tracking

With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.

15. screen size

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.

16. has a touch screen

You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

17. has sensor shift stabilization

With sensor shift, the image sensor (rather than the lens) moves to counterbalance any vibration of the camera. This means the image will be stabilised regardless of what lens is being used.

20. number of microphones

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.

21. optical zoom

The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.

22. widest aperture

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.

23. has a serial shot mode

You can shoot multiple pictures in a row.

24. has a CMOS sensor

CMOS image sensors are slowly replacing CCD sensors, due to reduced power consumption and better image quality. They can be very compact and cost relatively little to produce.

25. exposure time

When the camera shutter is open for a long time, more light is absorbed by the sensor. You can use this slow shutter speed to produce vivid night time photography, or capture the trajectory of moving objects such as motorway traffic.
