Olympus FE-5050 & FE-4050 Unveiled, Arriving in Japan Later This Month

When it comes to point-and-shoot cameras, there doesn't seem to be much differentiation between cameras in the market. That being said, you're either a fan of them, or you're not. There's probably not that big of a middle-ground out there.

Olympus X-560WP & T100 Waterproof and Entry-Level Digital Cameras Announced

One might consider cameras to be a dime-a-dozen, but that's not a bad thing. Even the simplest of cameras can attract anyone's eye, especially if they're shiny enough. And if they can go underwater, well, that's just an added bonus. Today, Olympus unveiled the waterproof X-560WP, and the entry-level T100 for the whole world to see.

Olympus SP-800UZ and SP-600UZ super-zooms

Olympus have announced a pair of new super-zoom cameras, and if Fujifilm's FinePix HS10 thought it would have the 30x optical zoom market to itself, it should think again.  The Olympus SP-800UZ packs a 14-megapixel sensor and a 30x optical zoom, but still manages to be the "world's smallest" such snapper; meanwhile the SP-600UZ slots in underneath it, offering a more budget-friendly 12-megapixel sensor and 15x optical zoom.
