Olympus has introduced five new cameras to refresh its consumer lineup just days before the international Photo Marketing Association show in Las Vegas.

Olympus has introduced five new cameras to refresh its consumer lineup just days before the international Photo Marketing Association show in Las Vegas.

The new releases cross over most of the company's different lines, including the SP-570UZ from their prosumer Ultra Zoom range, two Tough ruggedised cameras and two Mju compact cameras.

Two new entry-level compacts, the FE-310 and FE-320, were also announced in Asia, but Olympus representatives say the company is focusing on the higher-end models and have no plans to bring these new models to Australia.
