With the PMA show coming up at the end of February, we will, no doubt, see another round of new cameras which will probably start hitting the shelves in March and after.

Once the shutter is released, the mirror swings out of the way so the sensor can capture the image. Olympus has managed to be the first to market with a product that overcomes the physical and technical hurdles of providing an optical viewfinder and live view LCD.
