If you like the idea of Sony's QX lens system, but don't warm to the extra weight and bulk (not to mention the rather high price tag) it adds to your smartphone, Ztylus has something that may be of interest. The company has produced a stylish case to protect your iPhone, Note 3 or S4 from life's bumps and scrapes that's also home to a circular mount onto which a multiple lens system is attached. This gives mobile snappers four additional lens options to play with. The downside is that the case and lens system need to be purchased separately, but it's still a nifty way to expand the photographic capability of your smartphone. Read More

The new model is also a little more compact than 2012's V2, having had the built-in electronic viewfinder stripped away. Read More

Fujifilm has been at the center of the rumor mill for the past couple of weeks, after the company teased a new camera on its X system website.

It benefits from fast autofocus, high sensitivity and strong continuous shooting performance, and also sports an OLED electronic viewfinder with the world's highest magnification for a digital camera and shortest display lag.

Canon finally entered the mirrorless interchangeable lens camera market in the middle of last year with the EOS M, which saw the company squeeze some DSLR technology and an APS-C size sensor into a compact camera-sized body. A smaller and lighter successor has now been revealed, and it's been named, appropriately enough, the M2. The pixel count and image processing engine remain the same, but the new model promises more than twice the autofocus speed of its predecessor, and now packs built-in Wi-Fi. Read More
If you've invested in a specific interchangeable lens camera system, but want to change your photographic allegiance to another brand, you're normally stuck with the prospect of selling your current lenses to fund replacements. Sigma hopes to make switching camera brands easier with the launch of a mount conversion service, which will adapt its lenses to work on your new camera of choice. Read More
Panasonic has revealed its latest retro-styled mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, the Lumix DMC-GX7.
