Compact digital cameras are the perfect camera for taking on holiday, to a concert or a sporting event. They are less cumbersome than a digital SLR, but with far more power and features than your typical point-and-shoot camera. Olympus compact digital cameras offer all the benefits of a DSLR but in a more portable form, so you can easily keep them in your pocket when not using them, without too much fuss.
There are so many Olympus compact cameras on the market, there is something for everyone. The Olympus VR-310 and the Olympus XZ-1 all have a great range of features, such as super wide optical zoom, magic filters for creating effects on photos, movie capability, as well as coming in a super slim design with a great range of colour choice. The VR-310 has a 10x super wide optical zoom lens and scene modes for every specific condition. The XZ-1 gives a high quality performance in a compact body. It has dual image stabilising and full manual controls for the experienced photographer. Olympus cameras have something for every budget and every level of photographer.
Olympus compact digital cameras are some of the best compact cameras available, so you can't go far wrong with such a world-renowned and reliable brand. Olympus Europe has been around since 1963 and has been continuously growing since then. Whether you're looking for a stylish design, top-notch results, adjustable settings or just want an easy-to-use camera, Olympus will have the right camera to suit your needs.
The Olympus MJU Tough range
Another of the Olympus compact digital camera available is the Olympus MJU Tough range. If you're going to be out and about a lot of the time, this could be just what you need. Many of the Olympus MJU Tough range are durable cameras, such as the Olympus MJU 6020 or the MJU 5010, which are robust and have a wide selection of features to protect them from the outdoors. The MJU 6020 can be used in water to depths of 5 metres, can survive being dropped from a height of 1.5 metres and can still function at as low -10c temperature. All this and it is small enough to fit into a big pocket. So if you fancy yourself as a bit of a Bear Grylls, this camera might be the one for you. The MJU 5010 has 1GB of internal storage, far greater than the average camera, and this will allow you to store around 250 photos with no memory card. Whatever you want to use your camera for, this Olympus compact digital camera is up to the task.
A great feature that Olympus cameras also have is a built-in help section. This takes you through the key functions of the camera as well as guiding you on general photo taking. Olympus cameras also have a feature which allows you to easily upload videos to YouTube so you can share your adventures while you're still enjoying them.
All in all, with Olympus' wide range of cameras, you will very likely be able to find a model that ticks all the boxes and suits your needs.
