Olympus 1030 SW

Olympus has two digital compacts to add to their Stylus line, the 1030 SW and 850 SW (shock and water-proof.) The 850 features an 8 MP sensor, a 2.5-inch HyperCrystal II LCD display, and a 3x optical zoom. Drop it up to 5 feet and it bounces back, figuratively speaking. The camera can go down 10 feet in temperatures of about 14ºF. The 1030 has a 10.1 MP sensor, a 2.7-inch HyperCrystal II LCD display, and a 3.6x optical zoom. Olympus claims that it will handle a depth of 33 feet and a temperature as low as 14ºF.
