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

Sony HVL-F20S external flash

Sony has just announced the release of a new external flash for NEX and E-mount cameras, the HVL-F20S flash. This moderately sized flash is designed to be a more powerful alternative to the tiny popup flash attachment that Sony bundles with their NEX cameras without being as bulky as a ‘full-sized’ external flash for traditional SLR cameras.

The Sony HVL-F20S flash, in addition to having a name which is a mouthful to say, has a guide number of 20 meters (at ISO 100, 50 mm). The unique feature of the flash is that it requires no batteries; instead being powered by your NEX camera (and in that case, be prepared to bring an extra battery or two for your camera instead!). The flash head can be rotated upwards for bouncing light off ceilings and other surfaces.

This flash will be available in August for a relatively affordable $150.

Panasonic announced the successor to their Lumix G2 interchangeable lens camera, appropriately named the Lumix G3. The Panasonic Lumix G3 is smaller than its predecessor, has a higher resolution image sensor and comes in your choice of several colors. It has the features and flexibility you’d expect from an entry-level digital SLR model with a much more compact body and array of lenses.
