Olympus SP810 Ultra Zoom
Olympus announced their SP-810UZ flagship ultra-zoom camera today. The camera features a huge and record shattering (again) 36X optical zoom lens, which is currently the longest zoom lens yet on a digital camera. With the announcement of the Panasonic Lumix FZ47 a week ago, things are shaping up to bring about a potentially interesting fall/autumn 2011. I think I’d better start planning for a ‘big’ ultra-zoom group test/review… right after I publish our huge (literally) ‘compact’ superzoom/travel […]

Olympus PEN ‘Lite’ E-PL3
(Compact interchangeable lens camera)
Olympus’ second PEN camera for today is the PEN ‘Lite’ E-PL3, which is a follow-up to last year’s E-PL2. The camera takes a small step back by losing the built-in popup flash (though Olympus does include an external one with the camera) but gains in other areas by adding a tiltable display and having an extremely similar feature set as the higher-end E-P3, although it does have fewer external controls than the E-P3.

12 megapixel […]

Olympus PEN ‘Mini’ E-PM1
(Compact interchangeable lens camera)
The third and final PEN camera Olympus had to announce today is a new spawn off the existing E-P and E-PL line of PEN cameras. The E-PM1 PEN “Mini” is even smaller (but still very similar) than the E-PL3 above and has fewer buttons. It’s obviously geared towards beginners looking for a portable (and possibly affordable) offering to set foot in the interchangeable lens camera market, though enthusiasts just looking for a plain and […]

Pentax Q
(Compact interchangeable lens camera)
Pentax marked their entrance into the compact interchangeable lens camera market today with the announcement of the “Q” camera that uses a new Pentax Q mount (along with five strangely named “number” Q lenses). The camera is significantly smaller than competing cameras from the likes of Panasonic, Samsung, Sony and Olympus because of its 1/2.3 inch sensor (closer to the size you’d get in compact cameras rather than digital SLR models).

12 megapixel 1/2.3″ backlit CMOS sensor
Q-mount […]

Panasonic Lumix GF3
(Compact interchangeable lens camera)
Panasonic announced their annual refresh to the Lumix GF-series of compact interchangeable lens cameras. This time, they’ve made the Lumix GF3 even smaller (17% smaller than the Lumix GF2) and simpler, aiming it more at the ‘average Joe consumer’ than the original GF1. Check it out:

12 megapixel Live MOS sensor (Micro Four Thirds, 2.0X crop factor)
Micro Four Thirds lens mount (adapters available for normal Four Thirds and Leica lenses)
Venus Engine FHD image processor
3 inch touchscreen […]
