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

Sony has launched the world's first 35 mm full-frame interchangeable lens cameras

Mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras offer consumers DSLR-like performance in a much less bulky package, but prothusiasts looking for something bigger than an APS-C sensor may still have to lug around a larger and heavier camera. The playing field is changing though. Panasonic has managed to squeeze a Micro Four Thirds sensor into a body that's smaller than many compact cameras for its new GM1, and now Sony's upped the ante even further. The Alpha 7 and 7R are claimed to be the world's first 35 mm full-frame mirrorless cameras.  Read More

Over the past couple of years we've seen camera manufacturers trying to strike the right balance between image quality and camera size, by fitting ever larger sensors in ever smaller cameras.

Photographers who want to shoot while snorkeling, rafting, skiing, or just splashing about in the water, are normally limited to using a tough compact camera, or shelling out for an expensive underwater-housing for their DSLR. The Nikon 1 AW1 has been designed to change that. It's claimed to be the world's first commercially available digital interchangeable lens camera which is waterproof and shockproof.  Read More

The new Olympus OM-D E-M1 could be the end of the DSLR, at least as far as Olympus is conc...

Olympus has revealed its new flagship camera, the OM-D E-M1. While the mirrorless camera builds on the success of the E-M5, it's actually been designed as the successor to the last DSLR the firm produced, the E-5. As such, the camera boasts a chunky grip and manual controls galore. There's also a 16 megapixel sensor with no optical low-pass filter, a speedy autofocus system and built-in Wi-Fi.  Read More

The Sony Alpha A3000 may look like a DSLR, but it is actually a mirrorless camera

Sony has announced the latest addition to its Alpha line-up of DSLR-like cameras the Alpha A3000. But while previous devices like the A99 and A57 weren't technically DSLRs because they use translucent mirror technology, the A3000 goes one further by doing away with the mirror altogether. Also announced is the NEX-5T, another mirrorless camera from Sony which packs NFC wireless connectivity into a slim body.  Read More
