Olympus has announced the latest addition to its line of rugged compact cameras, with the Stylus Tough TG-4.

The Olympus OM-D E-M5 was one of the first mirrorless cameras to really strike a chord with photographers when it was released in 2012. Now, three years later, Olympus has revealed what appears to be a worthy sucessor, the E-M5 Mark II. The new camera inherits features from the professional-focused E-M1, and boasts a few impressive tricks of its own like better image stabilization and the ability to shift its 16-megapixel sensor around to take 40-megapixel stills.

As such, it includes a dedicated Selfie Mode, a 180-degree downward flip LCD, and built-in Wi-Fi. Read More
The recently revealed Olympus Stylus SH-1 has the potential to be a great compact travel camera: it's stylish, pocketable and has a versatile long zoom lens.

It's not just retro styling that's making its way from the Olympus flagship mirrorless line-up to its compact cameras. Some of the high-end tech is, too.

While the retro styling and photographic capability of the Olympus OM-D line-up has had a broad fan base since its introduction, its pricing has pretty much limited it to the enthusiast and professional markets. Now Olympus is aiming to widen its appeal with the introduction of the OM-D E-M10, a smaller and more budget-friendly offering. Read More

Olympus has revealed its new flagship camera, the OM-D E-M1. While the mirrorless camera builds on the success of the E-M5, it's actually been designed as the successor to the last DSLR the firm produced, the E-5.
