 Olympus' VG-120 is an entry-level point-and-shoot digital camera, and is the first in the 2011 V-series models. It was released at the same time as the VG-130 and VG-140 models, and has totally identical features with a .01" thinner body frame that includes some plastic regions, whereas the other models have full metal casings. The only other differences are in colour availability. Available in grey, silver and red, this camera has 720p video capture, a 14-megapixel sensor and 5x optical zoom. Two useful shooting features are "intelligent auto" that automatically detects which preset scene selection to use, and autofocus tracking which helps keep fast-moving subjects in focus. Another feature is an internal filter program that can apply stylized filters to images or video after they're taken. There are also built-in help guides that appear onscreen if desired. It uses a rechargeable battery and has a card slot for SD and SDHC cards.
