This is Olympus’ newest compact digital camera to hit the market and looks like another camera with great potential.

The body of the camera is metal and comes in silver, black or blue. The weatherproofing is made to IEC 529 IPX4 standards which means it can have water splashed from any direction due to rubber seals around doors and a compartment inside which seals off the electronics.

Among the standard features listed above, the camera has other cool features which as optimisation of images with dark, shadowed areas.
