Product Information

product description

Experience a compact and convenient point-and-shoot camera – but with a truly brilliant extra: Besides being absolutely easy to handle, the new VG-170 provides a flash nearly twice as powerful as on a regular compact camera.

The Guide Number is approx. 8.8, in contrast to 4 to 5.6 with comparable cameras. Thanks to the long flash mode you can even light up faces and objects up to fully 15 meters away, as it automatically selects higher ISO sensitivity.
