SZ10 BLK Front 1If you’re looking for a compact superzoom camera, you’ll be happy to hear that Olympus has announced the SZ-10, a camera that features a wide 18x 28-504mm zoom lens. The camera features a 14-megapixel image sensor, 3-inch LCD display, TruPic III+ image processing, along with support for Eye-Fi wireless cards. The SZ-10 will set you back $249.99 when it ships in March.

Olympus also has the VR-330 that is priced at GBP159.99 ($258) in Europe that offers a 12.5x zoom lens and lacks the newer image processing of the SZ-10 while using the same 14-megapixel image sensor. Both cameras do offer 720p video capture, HDMI-output, and a dynamic 3D mode. In case you’re short of cash, there is a variant of the VR-330 that does away with the 3D mode and sells for $199.99, namely the VR-320 and it’ll be shipping stateside in February.

Finally, there is also the entry-level VG-110 camera that is priced at $89.99. This camera features a 12-megapixel sensor, 2.7-inch LCD display, 4x optical zoom and VGA video capture, not to bad for a basic camera.
