Here's where you find the best of the best, our top digital cameras across the board.
The Olympus mju Tough-6020 and Tough-8010 are secure enough in their masculinity to wear pink, and who can blame them when they're waterproof, shockproof, freezeproof and even crushproof
The mju 9010 promises much but doesn't really deliver. Physically, it's fine. It's compact, portable, affordable and easy to use. But the image quality is weak and the movie mode has serious limitations. If you're shopping for the best compact superzoom, keep looking
Typical price: £230.00
Olympus is muscling its way back into the increasingly crowded sturdy-camera market with the new mju Tough 6010 in manly, red, grey and... turquoise?
With all rugged cameras, you're buying toughness over picture quality. On that basis, the Olympus mju Tough-3000 offers a good blend of features, durability and affordability
Typical price: £165.00
The Olympus mju-7040 is a smart and versatile compact camera with a very good zoom range for its size. Its 2GB of internal storage and in-built software make it handy as a portable photo and movie browser too. The step up to 14 megapixels, from its predecessor's 12 megapixels, does nothing for the picture quality, though
Typical price: £240.00
The Olympus mju-7010, FE-26, FE-4000, FE-5020 are not only colourful but pack decent-sized zooms. But why oh why is Olympus so stuck on microSD?
Most underwater compacts have to use internal 'folded' lenses, so it's unwise to expect stellar image quality. Even so, the Olympus mju Tough-6010's pictures are rather disappointing. It's still a stylish and relatively cheap go-anywhere camera, though
Typical price: £210.00
The Olympus mju-7000 looks like yesterday's future today, and packs a 7x zoom into an impressively svelte frame
A big step forward from the old mju-7000, the Olympus mju-7010 combines a 7x wideangle zoom with a slim body. It looks great, handles well and its pictures are pretty good too. An in-camera panorama feature and some neat 'magic filters' are a welcome bonus
Typical price: £200.00
The Olympus mju 7000 is competent, but offers nothing that makes it stand out. You'd probably be better off with either the mju 5000 or mju 9000
