Olympus has decided to celebrate the 50th anniversary of its classic PEN F camera by launching its latest digital successor, the PEN E-P5. But, while the new Micro Four Thirds shooter bears more than a passing resemblance to the original PEN F, its retro good looks house modern features including a 16 megapixel Live MOS sensor, 5-axis image stabilization and built-in WiFi capabilities.  Read More

The pockets of photography enthusiasts have become something of a fresh battleground for camera manufacturers. Increasingly, impressive compacts try to combine performance and manual controls, while remaining svelte enough to be slipped in a pocket and carried everywhere. Olympus aims to achieve this with its latest high-end compact camera – the XZ-10 – by borrowing features and styling from its PEN range of mirrorless cameras.  Read More

Spending some hands-on time with the Olympus LS-100 Multi-Track Linear PCM recorder

The often free audio recording apps that come pre-loaded on many smartphones are great for grabbing an impromptu interview, capturing all your innermost thoughts while out and about, or making sure you don't lose that killer riff whenever and wherever inspiration may strike.

Add to that a distinct lack of features and you might be tempted to look in the direction of dedicated portable devices for all your sound recording needs. Having spent a week or so in the company of the Olympus LS-100 Multi-Track Linear PCM recorder, I can confirm that you really do get what you pay for.  Read More

The near-ubiquitousness of camera-equipped smartphones has seen many ditch their dedicated cameras in favor of the convenience of snapping shots on their phone. But although the quality of the camera in the iPhone has improved over the various iterations of that device, there are still many things a dedicated camera is better at.

Have something in a narrow space that you want to inspect? Well, you could do worse than using Olympus’ new iPLEX TX industrial videoscope. With a tip diameter of 2.4 millimeters, it’s one of the world’s thinnest such devices, but its image is also much more clear than those of other “fiberscopes.”  Read More

After much speculation online, Olympus has finally confirmed details and availability for ...

Olympus has proved the rumor mill to be right once again, by detailing its new TG-1 iHS compact after it was accidentally leaked across the web last week. The new king of the TOUGH Series of cameras more than lives up to its hard-as-nails moniker, being waterproof to 40 feet (12 meters), shockproof to 6.6 feet (2 meters), able to operate in temperatures as low as 14°F (-10°C) and capable of withstanding a crushing weight of up to 220 pounds (100kgf). In spite of all this rugged muscle, the new model's most impressive feature is its f2.0 - f4.9 aperture lens.  Read More

At first glance, you might think that you've seen the new E-M5 from Olympus before, and you'd be right. Kind of. The new Micro Four Thirds camera is based on the classic lines of the OM series film SLR cameras first introduced in 1972, and becomes the first of the company's OM-D Series. Olympus trumpets its arrival as the beginning of a new era in digital imaging and has included a number of breaking technologies to support its claims.  Read More

Photojojo has just added SLR Magic's 35mm f1.4 manual focus toy lens for Olympus and Panas...

Strange though it may seem, despite manufacturers going to great lengths to provide the very best in image quality, there are quite a number of snappers who long for the kind of warm and fuzzy (and often accidental) creations from the good old days of 35mm film cameras. Olympus or Panasonic Micro Four Thirds camera owners looking for a cheaper alternative to the kind of soft edging and background blur effects offered by the likes of Lens Baby might well be interested in SLR Magic's 35mm f1.4 toy Micro Four Thirds camera lens.  Read More

If your holiday snapping demands the versatility of up close macro photography and telephoto zoom in one compact camera then a wide-angle superzoom will likely be at the top of your shopping list. Olympus believes that it has you covered with the announcement of a successor to its SP-800UZ superzoom compact camera. The new model retains the same image resolution and movie quality as its predecessor but gets a zoom boost, gains SDXC and Eye-Fi support and is a touch thinner and lighter. The creativity features also benefit from new additions, including a 3D capture mode and Magic Filter additions.  Read More
