New Olympus Stylus 1 Digital Camera

A Powerful, Neat Little Compact from Olympus

"Fixed lens zoom from 28-300! Folding display! Stops up to f2.8!"

Olympus have just announced a new, neat little advanced compact camera that is the Olympus Stylus 1. The design is similar to its larger DSLR counterparts with their sharp (ish) edges but all wrapped in a fixed zoom lens compact body. I really like the look of it...
