Olympus confirms the launch of the ultra zoom SP-610UZ in the SP line and TG-610 and TG-310 to the Stylus Tough series; and also adds the wide-angle zoom VG-120. Almost all of these are available in a variety of colors. The additions to the Stylus Tough series can withstand water depths of 16 and 10 feet.
