Olympus E-450

As an entry-level digital SLR, the Olympus E-450 doesn't disappoint. Its diminutive dimensions, positive handling, excellent layout and optical viewfinder make it a practical alternative to the Micro Four Thirds-based Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1, as well as more standard rivals. It also sports some welcome improvements over its predecessor, the E-420, but they're fairly subtle, so most people probably won't want to make the upgrade

Olympus mju 5000

Cutting-edge specs and new technologies might help sell cameras, but, when it comes to using them, it's design and quality that make the difference. The Olympus mju 5000 doesn't push any boundaries, but it's a very well-made camera and a pleasure to use

Olympus VG-170

At just £80, the VG-170 is a very inexpensive camera, particularly when you consider its resolution, size and smart features. Unfortunately, its performance is a let-down, with noise appearing in too many of our test shots.

Olympus mju Tough-3000

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

Olympus FE-5050

The Olympus FE-5050 is a low-cost, 14-megapixel point-and-shoot with a wild side. The camera's punk-effect filter may be an inspired flourish, but image quality is variable and critical sharpness mostly lacking.

Olympus IR-300

With its distinctive off-white fascia, elegant styling and ergonomic design, the IR-300 is an easy camera to like. However, the complicated menu system, disappointing movie mode and occasional problems with colour fidelity mean you can do better elsewhere

Olympus Pen E-P2

The enhancements that Olympus has made to the Pen E-P2 over its Pen E-P1 predecessor are worthwhile but hardly earth-shattering. It's a good-looking camera and the quality of both its photos and movies is great. But it can be awkward to use and it costs much more than a digital SLR with comparable specs

Olympus SP-620UZ

A good performance overall from the chunky Olympus SP-620UZ, but it's overshadowed by its slimmer sibling, the SZ-14. The lack of a bundled rechargeable battery or the ability to zoom while filming are disappointing, but the long lens and high resolution are both tempting, as is the price.

Olympus Mju 1050SW

It's quite astonishing that such a slim and elegant camera should also turn out to be so tough. But its small size and slippery finish does limit its usefulness in those extreme environments it's so good at surviving, and its controls and its picture quality are no more than average

Olympus Air A01

A competitor for the Sony QX1, Olympus' lens-style camera is designed to be customized.

Olympus mju 9000

Most people will find a compact superzoom with a 10x lens more practical than a much bulkier 20x superzoom, and the Olympus mju 9000 carries it off really well, proving just as pocketable as an ordinary compact. It's easy to use, responsive and delivers good results

Olympus mju 7040

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

Olympus mju 1200

The Olympus mju 1200 is a slimline, capable point-and-shoot for those more interested in style than photography. A bare-bones feature set and some quirky controls mean that you're paying a premium for the gorgeous style and 12 megapixels

Olympus Pen E-PL1

The Olympus Pen E-PL1 is cheaper and more plasticky than the Pen E-P1 and Pen E-P2, and ought to be worse -- but it's not. It handles better and does more, thanks to its built-in flash. It's a Micro Four Thirds camera for the masses, and about time too

Olympus mju 7000

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

Olympus Pen Mini E-PM1

The Olympus Pen Mini E-PM1's cute name and rainbow of colours make it a beginner-friendly lens-swapping snapper.

Olympus SH-21

A great inexpensive choice, the Olympus SH-21 is well suited to travellers who need a versatile snapper that feels like it could take a knock. The well thought-out quick-access menus are a boon. All in all, it's a great little package.

Olympus Pen E-PL3

If three is the magic number, the lens-swapping Olympus Pen E-PL3 and its new folding screen should have plenty of tricks up its colourful sleeve.
