Olympus Stylus 7030

The Stylus 7030 looks to be a solid point and shoot. The specs stack up to similarly priced models from Samsung, Kodak, and Panasonic that were announced at CES 2010. While the non-HD motion JPEG video is subpar this year, Olympus must be banking ...

Olympus VG-120

The VG-120 isn't a standout in any way, but includes a number of standard features at a very low cost. You'll find 14 megapixels, a 5x optical zoom lens and 720p HD video recording. We do find it hard to recommend this camera given Olympus' past r...

Olympus VG-110

The VG-110 looks like an uninspiring point-and-shoot. Judging by Olympus' track record with cheap compacts, there won't be a compelling reason to buy it. It's cheap and it has some built-in art filters, but we don't expect much at all.

Canon PowerShot ELPH 115
