Recently I bought the Olympus Stylus 8010 14 Mega Pixel digital camera for my wife's birthday, and we could not be more pleased. The packaging was good, shipping was prompt and the camera is amazing. The video is much of much better quality than other similar cameras I have used in the past, and having seperate buttons for video and image mode is a very nice though easy to overlook feature. The camera body is built like a tank. It is easily the heaviest digital I have ever bought with the exception of my Nikon SLR. The picture quality is great. There might be slightly better image quality cameras of this size out there, but only a discerning eye would notice the difference. The ruggedness and waterproof aspect of this camera make any shortcomings this camera might have irrelevant. I am asking my wife for a second one for father's day so that I can finally have my own camera that I can bang around all I want. NOTE: this camera is a little thicker than our old Sureshots and as such does not fit in most of our old digital camera cases, so you might think about ordering something to carry it in also, given how cheap cases are now.
