The latest generation of Olympus' FE line, the 3010 offers a lot of power in a small package. A 3X optical zoom and 12-megapixel resolution makes sure that every picture comes out as clear and as sharp as you remember it. Advanced Detection and Intelligent Auto ensure that your subjects aren't obscured by blurs or shadows, while Pre-set Shooting modes allow users to customize according to lighting conditions. All together in a super-thin metal body (.7-inches!).

Olympus is a long-time camera manufacturer, but lately they've been offering innovative, compact imaging options that are well worth a look. While Olympus doesn't have a camera in every category like Nikon or Sony, their focus on the cameras they offer shows.

Olympus' main, and best, cameras are their mirrorless line. The OM-D line offers mirrorless cameras that rival professional results while their PEN options offer the most portability and affordability. Most of their mirrorless cameras have simple, retro designs that work really well. Their kit lenses are often a bit higher quality than most. The Olympus mirrorless cameras we've been able to test have shown excellent image quality and usability.

While most of Olympus' focus seems to be on their excellent mirrorless line, we haven't been disappointed with any of their compacts we've put through our tests either. The TG-3 and TG-4 are among the best waterproof compacts on the market. And when we put the super zoom SP-100 to the test, we were quite happy with the image quality and performance.

Olympus may not have a camera in each and every category, but they've really put a lot into their existing cameras, making them excellent options.
