What are the first few names that come to mind when talking about digital camera manufacturers? Nikon, Fujifilm, Canon, maybe Sony, maybe Panasonic, right? How about Olympus? Well, they’re probably not in anyone’s top three at the moment, but if you think about it you’ll remember seeing plenty of good-looking cams from the Japanese company and then not seeing them for no apparent reason.

Especially when it comes to tough compact digital cameras, Olympus-branded gadgets are some of the best around. Like the new Stylus TG-830 and TG-2, unveiled just moments ago and expected to see daylight during February.

These two big guys are perfect for outdoorsy folks, adventurers or just huge klutzes, being waterproof, shockproof and freezeproof. The TG-830 also comes with a high-sensitivity, high-speed backlit 16 MP CMOS sensor, a high-performance TruePic image processor, low noise, high-speed AF and multi-recording functions.

Meanwhile, the TG-2 is a little bit more modest feature-wise, being only equipped with a 12 MP sensor, GPS and iHS technology. No words on pricing just yet, but we’ll keep you in the loop. Just promise us you’ll give these two the attention they deserve.

    Writer obviously does not know much about the camera market or marketshare figures. Do your homework before shooting off your mouth.
