I am Josh Goldman senior editor with CNET and this look at the Olympics tough TG one page acts that. New for 2012 this the camera maker's top of the line rugged compact that's. Waterproof to forty feet shock proof -- six point six feet and crash proof and freeze proof is well. But what's really the standout feature here is the lens and for a change it's not a -- -- but aperture. It's a large F two aperture and it lets in more light than typical lens would. -- which means shooting in low light doesn't immediately mean more noise -- softer photos. Olympus also built in 845 millimeter converter lens adapter -- can add on lenses and filters. How the rest of the cameras very nice to including its built in GPS and three inch amoled display. -- the only things I didn't care for with a close spacing on the controls. And the location of the stereo Mike here on top which ends up under your finger if you're not careful. Otherwise it's an excellent option if you're looking for a rugged compact point and shoot.

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.
For those who need a tough, waterproof, and ultracompact digital camera, the Olympus Stylus 720 SW's strengths outweigh some frustrating usability issues.
A wide-angle, wide-aperture lens and a high-sensitivity sensor add up to good low-light photos and fast performance for the Canon PowerShot SD4000 IS.
The Olympus E-P1 is an otherwise excellent enthusiast compact camera hampered by some performance problems and the lack of a viewfinder and built-in flash.
The C-60 Zoom combines snapshot convenience with some advanced settings, but watch out for its hypersensitive on/off switch.
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.
Reasonably priced for an interchangeable-lens model, with the same high-quality photos of its siblings, the E-PL1 nevertheless suffers from slow performance that makes it a poor choice for snapshooters looking to upgrade.
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.
This inexpensive shooter won't wow you with features, but its price and pictures are nice.
It's a bit slow and lacks manual exposure controls, but the Olympus Stylus 750 is still a very nice snapshot camera.
