    Olympus Stylus 1 review

    By 27 March 2014

    One glance at the Olympus Stylus 1 and it's hard to ignore how much it looks like a smaller version of the interchangeable lens Olympus OM-D series. Only it's not: this is a high-end compact camera with design cues adopted from the company's top-end interchangeable...

    Olympus OM-D E-M1 review

    By 20 February 2014

    We've been using the Olympus OM-D E-M1 for a number of months now. This compact system camera has seen us through many different shoots - from personal snaps to product images that you might have seen in some other Pocket-lint reviews - made all the easier...

    Hands-on: Olympus Stylus SP-100EE review

    By 29 January 2014

    Every major manufacturer has a superzoom camera of note, but Olympus has typically struggled to keep up with the advancing pack in this category. The Olympus Stylus SP-100EE, however, has proven enough to make us stand up and notice. Ahead of its official...

    Hands-on: Olympus Stylus Tough TG-850 review

    By 29 January 2014

    Olympus is no stranger to the waterproof compact camera, and from what we've seen the Stylus Tough TG-850 not only looks to be its best effort yet, but also comes with a number of firsts. Principal to the TG-850's design is a tilt-angle screen that can...

    Hands-on: Olympus OM-D E-M10 review

    By 29 January 2014

    Say hello to the Olympus OM-D E-M10, the company's entry-level model into the OM-D compact system camera series. But by "entry-level" we don't mean low-end. When we got to see this camera in action ahead of the official announcement over in Las Vegas...

    Hands-on: Olympus Stylus 1 review

    By 29 October 2013

    Well, well, well, if it isn't a mini Olympus OM-D. Only it's not. The Olympus Stylus 1 is like a head-on collision between the compact system camera and the Japanese company's high-end XZ-2 compact camera. With a 28-300mm f/2.8 lens thrown in the mix...

    Hands-on: Olympus OM-D E-M1 review

    By 10 September 2013

    Want to know what an Olympus camera looks like when the Japanese giant goes all out? Look no further than the OM-D E-M1, the latest interchangeable lens model that represents not only a push in the OM-D line, but also the death of the company's commitment...

    Olympus Pen E-P5 review

    By 19 July 2013

    Subtlety of design has always been one of the distinctions between the Olympus Pen series and other compact system cameras. In the case of the E-P5, Olympus has put its name centre stage - quite literally, as the shiny "Olympus Pen" branding across the...

    Olympus Stylus XZ-10 review

    By 6 June 2013

    At first glance the Olympus Stylus XZ-10 looks like a shrunken-down version of the comapny's top-spec XZ-2 compact. But it's both more and less than that: this middling advanced compact is a curious mix of high-spec - thanks to raw capture and the inclusion...

    Hands-on: Olympus PEN E-P5 review

    By 10 May 2013

    The Olympus Pen E-P5 is all about its pro-spec quirks and build quality charm. The successor to 2011's E-P3, the latest Olympus Micro Four Thirds interchangeable lens camera has a mixture of headline features to set it apart from the ever-busying crowd....

    By 30 January 2013

    Ahead of its official announcement, Pocket-lint was whisked away - to the outskirts of the Mojave desert, no less - to have a play with the forthcoming Olympus Stylus XZ-10. This brand new, high-end yet amateur-targeted compact camera takes on much of...

    Olympus Stylus XZ-2 (white) review

    By 30 January 2013

    When Olympus announced the Stylus XZ-2 last year we did wonder why there was no white version - as per the XZ-1 release - to complement the black version. C'mon, everything has a white version these days. READ: Olympus XZ-1 review Patience, it would seem,...

    Olympus Tough TG-2 waterproof compact camera pictures and hands-on

    By 11 January 2013

    The Olympus Tough TG-2 looks set finally to elevate the tough camera concept to new heights. When we first saw the original TG-1, complete with its f/2.0 maximum aperture lens at the widest angle setting, we liked where the concept was going but found...

    Olympus PEN Mini E-PM2 review

    By 3 December 2012

    There's a lot of choice in Olympus's Pen range. The E-PM2, also known as the Pen Mini, is the baby, and smallest, model of the company's compact system camera range. But small size doesn't mean small features; like both the E-PL5 and even top-tier OM-D...

    Olympus PEN Lite E-PL5 review

    By 21 November 2012

    The Olympus E-PL5, otherwise known as the "PEN Lite", is the fourth iteration of the E-PL series. It's been a bit of a roller-coaster ride since this Micro Four Thirds series' conception: we've had moments of brilliance such as the retro design; but brilliance...
