Olympus announces a new firmware update for its digital PEN Micro Four Thirds cameras, claiming that this version will speed up auto focus and improve AF tracking accuracy. We tested a beta version of the new firmware on an E-PL1 with three Olympus MFT lenses, including the new 9-18mm zoom.
Photographers who are already invested in a DSLR system may be looking at a camera like the Olympus E-P2 as a lighter secondary tool for situations that call for more anonymity than a bulky DSLR offers. We took the E-P2 out on the street in our latest On Assignment feature, giving it a field test as a low-profile, street photographer's camera.
DigitalCameraReview is on the move again, and for a change we're not headed to Vegas. This year, PMA relocates to Anaheim, California from a long run in Sin City. On the heels of many, many compact camera announcements, we're ready to get a first look at some of the latest releases from the likes of Nikon, Panasonic, Sony, Olympus, and Fujifilm.
We already published our first impressions of the Olympus E-P2 with a pre-production unit. Now that we have our hands on a production-ready camera, we wanted to share some more of our thoughts and publish some sample images while the full review is underway. Take a look and stay tuned for more.
Promotional materials on Olympus's site last week featured the image of a mystery PEN camera obscured by a hand. Today, they move that hand away and reveal the third Micro Four Thirds system in their digital PEN series, the E-PL1. They've offered DCR a first-look, pre-production unit and we've had our hands all over it ever since it arrived.
To complement the announcement of their third Micro Four Thirds camera, Olympus is getting official with the launch of two new Micro Four Thirds lenses.
After teasing the release of a new digital PEN camera last week, Olympus has officially taken the wraps off the E-PL1. It's their third Micro Four Thirds model, a step-down alternative to the E-P1 and E-P2. It compromises some of the features and build quality of the previous models to bring the price down, and it adds a built-in flash to the lineup for the first time.
The SP series of ultrazooms from Olympus gets two new additions today - the SP-800UZ and SP-600UZ. The SP-800UZ will feature a whopping 30x optical zoom lens, and the SP-600UZ will offer "merely" a 15x optical zoom lens. Both feature a DSLR-grade TruePic III image processor and a full slate of beginner-friendly features.
Olympus adds two more rugged cameras today to their Tough series. The Stylus Tough-8010 and Stylus Tough-6020 are shockproof, waterproof, crushproof, and freezeproof, making them ready for waves and ski slopes alike. They have a softer side, too. They're equipped with in-camera art filters and HD video recording. Read on for more of the rugged details.
The Stylus Tough-3000 will be the first of several tough cams released from Olympus this year.
Olympus updates today its point and shoot lineup with the Stylus 7040, 7030 and 5010. Their focus is offering a wide angle lens with up to 7x optical zoom range - available in the Stylus 7040 and 7030 - and a 5x zoom in the Stylus 5010.
Olympus has introduced two new cameras in its FE series, the FE-4020 and FE-47.
