Olympus VR-340 Camera Includes A Fashion StylistWith Olympus’s new pocket superzoom camera you can bypass the shower and the mirror in the morning. Well, maybe not the shower. But the new 16-megapixel Olympus VR-340’s new Beauty Mode includes a purse-load of in-camera makeup tricks: “Laid out like a cosmetic toolbox, it lets you apply everything from eyeliner and eye shadow to rouge for skin blemishes. You can even lift cheekbones and morph your subjects to give them a cover-model look.” Unfortunately, it probably doesn’t brush your teeth and make coffee for you. The VR-340 does, however, include a super-versatile 10x 24-240mm (equivalent) optical zoom lens with dual image stabilization, 720p HD video and a 3-inch 460k-resolution LCD display.

Besides the built-in stylist a.k.a., Beauty Mode, the VR-340 has Olympus’s Intelligent Auto (iAuto) mode, Program mode with exposure compensation, fifteen scene modes and seven Magic Filters for in-camera creative effects. All this is packed into a small camera body that will easily fit in a pants pocket. The price isn’t bad either – suggested retail for the Olympus VR-340 in the US is only $149.99. It should be available in March of 2012 in purple, silver, black, white and red. Buy them all so you can coordinate with your eye shadow and lipstick!
