The Olympus Pen E-P1 has only been public for a little more than a week, but already Olympus is looking to take full advantage of the camera's open-format Micro Four Thirds lens system - which allows the camera to use MFT lenses from several manufacturers - by updating firmware to better support Panasonic glass.
The Olympus Pen E-P1 is without a doubt one of the most technologically and stylistically aggressive new camera offerings to hit the market in 2009. After spending a few days shooting with a production E-P1, we're starting to form some opinions about how Olympus's first compact interchangeable-lens camera stacks up.
We've seen a lot of hype around Olympus's Micro Four Thirds concept camera, and today the manufacturer delivered the goods with the announcement of the production-ready E-P1. Inspired by Olympus's classic Pen models, could this be the most significant new camera of 2009? We get a hands-on look at a pre-production sample to find out...
Olympus announced today the E-P1, a revival of their classic Pen series of compact film cameras in Micro Four Thirds format. Behind the retro exterior, the E-P1 features a decidedly modern 12.3 megapixel Live MOS sensor and Olympus's latest TruePic V image processor, plus some novel new lenses.
When the Olympus Stylus Tough 6000 rolled into our office, we were eager to test its rugged capabilities. While our full review is on the way, take a look at our first impressions of the shockproof, freezeproof, and waterproof Tough 6000.
Olympus has announced a firmware update for the Olympus E-3 Digital SLR.
Olympus announced a firmware update today for the E-30, one of their higher-end, four-thirds DSLRs.
Olympus has just announced another addition to their SLR family, the E-450. Combining creative art filters from the E-30 with the portability of the E-400 line, Olympus hopes to put this camera in the hands of first-time SLR users.
Prior to today's official announcement of the Olympus E-620, we were fortunate enough to get to spend a little time with a pre-production version of Olympus's latest consumer DSLR, and some hands-on experience with the new model was helpful in beginning to sort out where Olympus is headed in launching yet another mid-tier DSLR.
Today, Olympus has announced yet another mid-priced, high-spec DSLR to round out its growing line of interchangeable-lens cameras. The 12.3 megapixel Olympus E-620 sits squarely in the middle of Olympus's current DSLR offerings - providing more horsepower than the entry-level E-420 and E-520, while avoiding the $1000-plus price tags of the E-30 and E-3.
We'd already spent a little time with the brand new Olympus SP-590 UZ, but Olympus was kind enough to let us explore a pre-production 590 in greater depth.
Not to be outdone in the quest for more range by Kodak's 24x optical zoom foray, the 12 megapixel Olympus SP-590 UZ features a 26x zoom lens.
