Olympus' new Stylus 7010 is an ultra-compact digicam that is loaded with versatile features. With a 12-megapixel image sensor, wide view 7x optical zoom lens, dual image stabilization, and creative 'Magic' filters, the Stylus 7010 has a lot to offer for such a compact package. This is one of the most powerful Stylus models to date, however it does not feature the weather-resistance that many expect when they see the Stylus label.
