Olympus Tough TG-610 photo gallery - The Olympus Tough digital cameras are known for their robustness. In the beginning of this year, Olympus expanded their Tough camera series with a pair of new rugged digital cameras. You can shoot anywhere with the Olympus Tough TG-610, whether on land or water or the air. The Olympus Tough TG-610 digital camera is not only waterproof up to a depth of 5 meters, but also shock resistant up to a height of 1.5 meters.

Posted by: Mark Peters Sunday 29th, May 2011

Photokina - Olympus SZ-20 photo gallery - A few months ago, Olympus introduced 3 new digital cameras, including the Olympus SZ-20 compact camera. Thanks to the compact, lightweight camera body and the powerful zoom performance, the Olympus SZ-20 is the ideal camera to take with you everywhere you go.

The 16 megapixel Olympus SZ-20 camera is equipped with a very sensitive, light CMOS sensor for optimal photo quality, even with low light.

Photokina 2010 report : I had the opportunity to shoot for a very short time some pictures with a full production Olympus E-5 camera at the press day of Photokina 2010. The test photos are made with an Olympus ZUIKO Digital 12-60mm f/2.8-4 lens. The Olympus E-5 camera was introduced just before the Photokina 2010 started and is Olympus' most recent Four Thirds high-end DSLR camera. The new Olympus E-5 camera features a new Live MOS sensor and a newly developed powerful TruePic V+ engine. The Olympus E-5 camera should bring the Four Thirds quality to the next level. The Olympus E-5 is improved with key features and had some added bonus like HD movie recording.

Olympus E-5 review

Posted by: Dennis Hissink Wednesday 15th, September 2010

Review Photokina 2010 - At the time of the official introduction of the Olympus E-1, the first Four Thirds DSLR camera, on sunny Mallorca, the first step was made to set up the Four Thirds System. I was present, in 2003, and got to know the first generation Four Thirds DSLR camera. In the years thereafter, a lot of models were added, but there were few high-end Four Thirds DSLR cameras. Four years later came the Olympus E-3, which was an improvement on many fronts, and a nice evolution. Three years later, I ‘finally’ have my hands on the Olympus E-5, the newest Olympus Four Thirds DSLR camera. Do we still have to wait for a new DSLR evolution?

Olympus Mju camera review

Posted by: Ilse Jurrien Sunday 4th, July 2010

Olympus Mju 9010 camera review : Olympus Mju 9010’s compact design does not betray its optical zoom performance. That is precisely this mega zoom camera’s spearhead. It is small and light enough to put in your pocket and it is equipped with a large focal range with which you can achieve large distances. The format of the Olympus Mju 9010 has pretty much remained unchanged in comparison with its predecessor. Also the focal range with 10x optical zoom, equivalent to 28 - 280mm, has remained the same. Although, the competition is showing that they are even taking it a step further, and with 12x optical zoom (25-300 mm) is managing to get even more out of the compact design. Olympus has, on the other hand, held back a bit.
