For those who need a tough, waterproof, and ultracompact digital camera, the Olympus Stylus 720 SW's strengths outweigh some frustrating usability issues.
As the name implies, here's where you find the best of the best, our top digital cameras across the board.
The Olympus Stylus SP-100 is a problem-solver camera, giving zoom fiends a simple -- and clever -- way to keep athletes, wildlife, and other targets in your sights.
For those who crave an enthusiast compact with more zoom range, the Olympus Stylus 1 should be high on your list for its excellent balance of performance, design, and features.
The SH-2 features a 25-600mm lens backed by five-axis image stabilization and a full set of shooting options to keep your low-light photos and movies bright and clear.
The TG-3 is just as tough as its predecessor, but gets a cool new macro trick and accessory, while the 24x compact zoom SH-1 gets styling and image stabilization to match the company's interchangeable lens cameras.
Though it doesn't change much from the TG-3, the TG-4 should remain the rugged camera choice for enthusiasts, while the Stylus 1s brings a couple design tweaks and feature updates.
The Olympus Stylus XZ-2 iHS is an excellent bright lens enthusiast compact. At this point, though, you should skip it at its full $600 price.
If you're looking for a step-up model that's still pretty compact, the Olympus PEN E-PM1 is a solid, affordable choice.
