With cameras, smaller is generally better—until you get so small that you sacrifice key features for the sake of miniaturization. The Olympus OM-D E-M10 mirrorless camera tries to strike the right balance, and gets a lot of things right.
Rumors are swirling in early 2014, and the first ones you should be taking seriously are regarding three new Olympus micro 4/3 lenses. Images have leaked, so it's almost a sure thing that they will be announced in the coming weeks.
The announcement of Blackmagic's $3000 RAW-shooting Cinema Camera in 2012 caused such a stir that not many could have anticipated a followup model, so soon, that was a fraction of the cost and a fraction of the size. The Pocket Cinema Camera continues forging the path of the upstart high-end video camera.
Update: Price is back up to $600. Hope you got one!
With all the retro-styled mirrorless cameras today, the traditional DSLR form factor seems relegated to nothing but, well, DSLRs. The Panasonic G5 is a mirrorless camera clinging hard to the classic DSLR mold. But it's smaller—and much cheaper.
Just in time for the holiday, this adorably strange Micro 4/3 camera case has our ears (eh? EH?) perked up with excitement. Sure, it may not be "practical," but come on—it's a furry rabbit case.
The greatest criticism of the Olympus E-P1, E-P2 and E-PL1 has undoubtedly been their autofocus speed. But a new firmware update increases AF speeds across these models by a promised minimum of 15%—that's using any lens you like.
