The best Olympus cameras are those that fit in your hand and lifestyle comfortably. Since the 1930s, Olympus has been putting out high-quality gear. They were one of the first to jump on the mirrorless camera bandwagon and are still forward-thinking today. The Olympus lineup has something for street, landscape, wildlife, and portrait photographers. If you're looking to step up your photography game and make the jump to a dedicated camera, take a look at some of the best digital cameras from Olympus.

A camera for anyone

These are the best Olympus cameras on the market today. Whether you're looking for something to take on your next vacation, want to upgrade from a point and shoot, or your phone to something with more power, or need pro gear, Olympus has a camera to fit the bill.

We love the beginner-friendly Olympus Tough TG-6 because it's waterproof, simple to learn to use, and affordably priced. Built for adventure, the TG-6 is on par with some of today's best action cameras.

If you prefer to start with an interchangeable lens camera, grab the Olympus OM-D-E M10 Mark IV. You'll get a 20MP camera and a sharp 14-42mm kit lens. The kit is compact, beginner-friendly, and offers the latest technology Olympus has to offer.

And if you're a pro shooter or looking to get into sports or bird photography, the Olympus OM-D-E-M1X is for you. It has a 121-point AF system, shoots 60 fps, and has a rugged, weatherproof build.
