    Olympus's VG-170 is bursting with quirky features such as 3D shooting and a larger flash than average, but can it be a master of all?

    10 years of 'SP' series ultra zoom cameras from Olympus culminate in the 16 megapixel SP-620UZ. Was it worth the wait?

    Olympus 1030 SW review

    Olympus 1030 SW review

    8  

    If you were to drop a DSLR into a stream it would be toast. So if you're thinking of journeying into a steamy jungle or snorkelling in a tiger-infested mangrove swamp, you might want to use something a bit tougher and lighter.

    Olympus mju 850 SW review

    Olympus mju 850 SW review

    6  

    An errant splash can spell instant death for most digital cameras, water and electronics being a combination that's even less compatible than chalk and cheese. The Olympus mju 850 SW sets out to change all that. Not only is it ruggedised to offer a degree of shock resistance such that you can drop it from a height of 1.5 metres, but it's also fully waterproof.

    Olympus mju790SW review

    8  

    When someone tells a reviewer that a camera is drop, shock and water-resistant, what do they seriously expect to happen? Quite... the claim's going to be tested. What red-blooded reviewer is going to take some camera maker's word for it?

    Olympus Mju 770SW review

    Olympus Mju 770SW review

    6  

    This camera sounds a good buy, considering it sells for just over £200. A respectable, relatively low-noise 7.1 megapixel sensor, 3x optical zoom and a sturdy, brushed steel case, waterproof to 10m, generous 2.5in LCD and so on.

    Olympus FE-250 review

    6  

    Not many camera manufacturers would have the temerity to boast how few features their camera has, but that's exactly what Olympus has done with the new FE-250 - the top model in its FE (fun and easy) range of digital compacts

    Olympus SP-550UZ review

    Olympus' latest super-zoom packs a massive 18x zoom range that goes from a wide 28mm to an amazing paparazzi-busting 504mm equivalent, and all with a full spread of manual controls

    Olympus Mju 770SW review

    Within an hour of picking up the 770SW it had been dropped on concrete, submerged in water, jumped on and then popped in the freezer. And it still came out very much alive and kicking

    Olympus SP-51OUZ review

    Despite the increasing affordability of digital SLRs, manufacturers are populating the middle ground with bridge cameras or 'super zooms' - enthusiasts' models that aren't quite as good as a Nikon D80

    Olympus Mju 750 review

    7  

    Like previous Mjus, the new 750 model is a stylish beast, featuring a tapered curve to the metallic silver (or black) body. Being narrower at one edge (24mm), the zoom barrel stands slightly proud even when not inuse
