Canon has just announced the PowerShot S110, a curiously minor update to last year's flagship S100 digital compact camera. The two cameras are nearly identical to each other, the only major differences are the S110's new Wi-Fi and touchscreen features, and the exclusion of the built-in GPS found on the S100.
Panasonic's Lumix GH series has been a favorite with videographers around the world looking for a small but capable video camera, so the pressure is certainly on for the successor of the 2010 GH2. With its heftier chassis and beefier specs, is this the most mature Micro Four Thirds camera yet?
Fujifilm is on a roll with its retro-inspired digital cameras, continuing with today's announcement of the XF1. The XF1 looks so good you want to lick it, and packs a bright f/1.8-f/4.9 Fujinon lens with a 2/3" EXR CMOS sensor, inside a sturdy body made from aluminium with faux leather.
The Stylus XZ-2 is Olympus' new flagship digital compact camera, succeeding the nearly two-year old XZ-1. We discover what's new about the camera, and have a frank discussion with Seiki Yamamoto of Olympus about the state of the camera industry.
Together with the Olympus Pen Lite E-PL5, Olympus is announcing three new lenses (sort of) for Micro Four Thirds. The 17mm f/1.8 is brand new, the 60mm f/2.8 macro lens gets a release date and the 12mm f/2.0 is coming in limited black.
Olympus has announced a brand-new Pen Lite E-PL5, with the same 16MP and TruePic VI image processing engine used by the flagship OM-D E-M5. Together with a new swivel touchscreen monitor, it looks like this entry-level camera will punch high above its weight.
