Olympus introduces TG-810 rugged compact camera
by Brad Soo on March 7

Olympus TG-810
The Olympus TG-810 is a new rugged camera announced today by Olympus. It looks to be their ‘flagship’ rugged camera for 2011 with the most rugged construction of them all (the TG310 and TG610 announced earlier this year are tough, but not as super-duper tough as this camera). It even has built-in GPS, compass and a manometer, so you get to know exactly where you took your photos, wherever you bring the camera.

by Brad Soo on February 9

Better late than never, right? Nikon has fully refreshed their entire Coolpix line of digital cameras (although there aren’t aNy new digital SLRs today), which makes them ready to take on the market looking for a 2011 camera model.

by Brad Soo on February 7

Canon has just announced four new compact camera models with new 12 megapixel CMOS sensors which enable high-sensitivity/high-speed shooting capabilities.

by Brad Soo on January 25

Panasonic has just taken the wraps off four new Lumix cameras today and they all look pretty interesting. There’s two new Lumix ZS (AKA Lumix TZ) series cameras that have even more optical zoom, better imaging sensors and more features than previous models… we’ll see if Panasonic can maintain their multi-year dominance in the compact super-zoom camera market, once I get hold of these new cameras for review. Next up is a new rugged camera and ultra-compact, both with the […]
