In a press release this morning, Panasonic has spelled out purchasing details for its long-awaited addition to its Micro Four Thirds line. Announced at PMA 2009, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH1 will be rolling out to retailers in early June. As expected based on previously announced European pricing, the new HD-capable model will command a hefty $1499.95 kit price when it hits stores next month.
Ricoh has released version 2.0 of its firmware for the GR Digital II.
The Canon PowerShot SX200 IS is Canon's latest offering in the growing compact ultrazoom segment. Our SX200 review unit rolled in today, and we've pulled together some sample shots and initial impressions after a little hands on time with the new model.
Fujifilm had several new products to show off publicly at this week's PMA show - most notably, the new FinePix F200EXR. We spent some hands on time, and even fired off a few shots, with Fuji's latest compact model with a Super CCD sensor. The results? See for yourself...
Samsung got the jump on other manufacturers in announcing the NX series - a line of concept cameras that put an APS-C sensor into a compact body. Prototypes were on display at Samsung's PMA booth today, helping to clear up some confusion about where Samsung is headed with the NX concept.
At a press conference this morning, Panasonic revealed tech specs for its latest Micro Four Thirds camera, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH1 – and though it's hardly surprising, the big news surrounding this camera that shares most of its tech with the Lumix G1 is undoubtedly the new model's video capabilities.
PMA 2009 doesn't officially open for another day, but Samsung's already trying to steal the show with the announcement of its NX concept camera. Using an APS-C sensor and removing the mirror box for a full-time live view shooting experience (a la the Micro Four Thirds system), this interesting concept may be Samsung's ticket to a leadership role in the camera market.
Is it a compact? Is it an ultrazoom? The Samsung HZ15W, announced this morning, is both. Boasting a 10x optical zoom lens, it will be one of the most powerful ultrazooms on the compact digital market. Sharing the previously announced HZ10W's 24-240mm Schneider zoom lens, the HZ15W offers a larger display, more resolution, and HD video capture as well.

Canon has rounded out its line of mid-priced ultrazooms today with the launch of the Canon PowerShot SX200 IS. Update to the platform that launched the popular SX100 and SX110 models, the compact SX200 features more zoom, more resolution, HD video recording, and Canon's newly developed Smart Auto feature set.
The Canon PowerShot D10 may look like something from science fiction, but its rugged design and moderate price are a recognition of the fact that many casual shooters are seeking cameras that are able to withstand the kinds of bumps, bangs, and accidental (or, for that matter, intentional) water contact that potentially come with a summer vacation.
