A Tough camera with fabulous style - Olympus has taken ruggedness to a new level with the Stylus TG-850. The striking newcomer combines tough perfor-mance with beautiful styling, a newly-developed 21-105mm 5x optical zoom lens and a tiltable monitor, to extend the range of shooting options. The Olympus Stylus TG-850 camera is well-suited to tough environments - it is shock-proof to 2.1m, waterproof to 10m, crushproof to 100 kg, and can operate in temperatures as low as -10°C. The ultra-wide lens is the widest in the tough compact camera class, while the monitor can be tilted through 180°. Yet the screen is ultra-flush with the body, and together with the reduced-size lens unit this enhances the sleek good looks of this compact camera.

Olympus introduces first camera with dot-sight - Olympus is breaking new ground with the world’s first dot-sight camera. The sight works in tandem with the newly-developed 1:2.9-6.5 24-1200mm 50x optical Ultra Zoom lens to enable easy high-power zooming and subject capture, making it ideal for spotting moving and distant subjects such as wildlife and planes, or for sports photography. The built-in sight is stowed for portability, and pops up instantaneously for shooting - two key advantages compared with an externally-mounted sight. The Olympus SP-100EE features a deeply-shaped grip for optimal handling during shooting, while the single-finger operation control dial allows for a professional style when using the electronic viewfinder.

Compact all-metal OM-D E-M10 completes Olympus’ high-end mirrorless line-up - Olympus’ multiple award-winning O-MD family has a new member: the Olympus E-M10. The striking newcomer combines the fine image quality, classic styling and focusing speed of the E-M5 with the sheer power of the flagship E-M1, albeit in an extremely compact all-metal casing. In fact, the casing makes the Olympus E-M10 camera something of a design paradox. It looks and feels like a DSLR, and it even comes with the same TruePic VII image processor and WiFi technology as the E-M1. But it’s a fraction of the size. For discerning hobby photographers looking for a powerful camera they can use every day, it’s the OM-D of choice.

New Olympus VH-520 compact camera - If camera design were a sport, iHS would be doping. Fortunately there is nothing to stop Olympus taking a gorgeously slim compact like the Stylus VH-520 digital camera and packing it full of the low-light iHS technologies only normally found in much bigger cameras for three times the price. For sheer image quality, the new Olympus VH-520 compact camera is streaks ahead of the field. Its biggest performance boosters? The 14-megapixel CMOS sensor and a TruePic V processor originally developed for DSLR. Closely followed by the 26mm-260mm wide, 10x optical zoom lens and lens-shift image stabilisation for taking out blur. When it’s dark, ISO 6400 and HDR Backlight Adjustment are essential.
