Olympus X560 WP
Released June, 2010
The Pros:Lightweight and compact design is very easy to carry. Few vulnerable parts, feels ok to put in your pocket without breaking something. Takes underwater photos clearly, no distortion and handles the unique lighting conditions well.
The Cons:Interface is slow, takes some time to react to anything you do. The zoom works slowly, takes some time to get to the right range. Waterproofing makes the buttons feel strange, have to push hard to get them to react.
The Olympus X560 WP is a 10 megapixel waterproof point-and-shoot camera, released in 2010. This 3x zoom camera can take photos up to 10 feet underwater thanks to its system of waterproof seals and gaskets.

The X560 WP is ideal for those who frequent the beach, and those who are involved in water sports. This camera is similar to the Olympus T100, an entry-level camera for teens featuring a higher 12 megapixel sensor and VGA movie recording instead of a waterproof body. The X560 WP can automatically identify scenes - such as portrait, landscape, macro or sport - and adjust the internal settings for the best possible results. A high sensitivity mode is also available for fast-moving imagery. Up to sixteen faces can be tracked, allowing for the camera’s focus to clearly capture a group of people. The Olympus X560 WP saves photos to the xD Picture Card format.
