Olympus 9 New Cameras

In advance of the Photokina expo taking place September 25th, Olympus has announced a full nine camera models across three different lineups. The new FE line is Olympus' entry-level camera, which shares a common platform of a 6 megapixel sensor, a 2.5-inch LCD, and a simplified one-button/one-function interface; the FE-200 adds 5X optical zoom. More advanced is the Stylus series (known as [mju:] in Europe) that emphasizes a compact shape and weatherproofing. All five new Stylus models feature a 3-inch LCD and Bright Capture technology, which allows for high ISO settings not normally found in point-and-shoot cameras. Of particular note are the Stylus 725 SW, which is waterproof to 5m and can survive a 1.5m drop, as well as the Stylus 1000, which holds a 10 megapixel sensor and can use Bright Capture to achieve an unheard-of ISO 6400 by lowering the effective image quality to 3 megapixels. Lastly, the SP-510 UltraZoom is a semi-professional camera with a 7 megapixel sensor, 10X optical zoom, and up to ISO 4000 using Bright Capture. Most of these new models are shipping in September, with select models shipping in October. Photos of key cameras in the lineup are after the jump.
