Cameras

For the super-zoom lovers, this year offers a great crop of digital compact cameras which are now offering up to 16x optical zoom in a small package. Unfortunately for the big DSLR camera lovers, the IT Show is a little early for both Canon and Nikon's newest stars to arrive - neither the 1D X, 5D Mark III, D4 or D800 will be at the show. Fujifilm has limited sets for the X-Pro1, a camera which has gathered headlines for its stunning looks, promised performance and high price. Olympus is taking pre-orders for the OM-D E-M5, which they say will arrive sometime in April.
