The Olympus Stylus 810 is a very attractive camera, with all-weather durability and a sizeable 8 megapixel CCD. The Stylus 810 is the pinnacle of the recent mainstream cameras released by Olympus, and the price point reflects that. The 810 will initially be retailing for almost $430, and while it is most likely worth the money, we can't help but feel that consumers might be better suited with a less expensive camera with fewer megapixels. That said, if you're looking for vibrant photos and the potential for large-scale reproductions, the Olympus 810 should be a serious consideration. If the price puts you off, the Stylus 710 is virtually identical and somewhat cheaper.

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.
