A sexy design can't overcome the average picture quality and mediocre performance of this ultracompact 4-megapixel shooter.
If you can stand a bit of noise, the Olympus Stylus 810 can handle your low-light and high-speed shots. Unfortunately, the easily washed-out LCD limits its use in sunlight.
Despite its decent features and handy Tap Control, there's no getting past the slow performance of the Olympus Stylus 1050 SW.
A basic camera, the Olympus Stylus 500 Digital is a good option for outdoorsy snapshot photographers who don't want to worry about the weather or fuss with camera settings.
For going from snorkeling to rock climbing to everyday life, the Olympus Stylus Tough 8000 is a good choice, though its photos and performance can be disappointing.
For some, an elegant shooter's design and high-quality low-ISO photos may more than adequately compensate for the Olympus E-P2's sluggish performance.
The Olympus IR-500 is a competent 4-megapixel camera with a limited zoom range, but its 2.5-inch high-resolution LCD and playback capabilities will make you want to tote it everywhere as a portable shoot-and-show display.
The appeal of this budget-priced snapshot camera is diminished by its lack of an optical zoom.

Lackluster image quality and shoddy performance mar what is otherwise an easy-to-operate camera with a decent feature set.
