Promotional materials on Olympus's site last week featured the image of a mystery PEN camera obscured by a hand. Today, they move that hand away and reveal the third Micro Four Thirds system in their digital PEN series, the E-PL1. They've offered DCR a first-look, pre-production unit and we've had our hands all over it ever since it arrived.
To complement the announcement of their third Micro Four Thirds camera, Olympus is getting official with the launch of two new Micro Four Thirds lenses.
After teasing the release of a new digital PEN camera last week, Olympus has officially taken the wraps off the E-PL1. It's their third Micro Four Thirds model, a step-down alternative to the E-P1 and E-P2. It compromises some of the features and build quality of the previous models to bring the price down, and it adds a built-in flash to the lineup for the first time.
The SP series of ultrazooms from Olympus gets two new additions today - the SP-800UZ and SP-600UZ. The SP-800UZ will feature a whopping 30x optical zoom lens, and the SP-600UZ will offer "merely" a 15x optical zoom lens. Both feature a DSLR-grade TruePic III image processor and a full slate of beginner-friendly features.
Olympus adds two more rugged cameras today to their Tough series. The Stylus Tough-8010 and Stylus Tough-6020 are shockproof, waterproof, crushproof, and freezeproof, making them ready for waves and ski slopes alike. They have a softer side, too. They're equipped with in-camera art filters and HD video recording. Read on for more of the rugged details.

The Olympus Stylus 7010 retains the old-school elegance of the original "go to" Stylus cameras that became popular with street photographers and travelers alike.

It's time to pull out the "H" word - yes, the holidays are fast approaching, like it or not. And this year, we'd like the gift budget to stretch as far as possible.
