Olympus SH-1 Lightning Review: High End Image Stabilisation In A Point And Shoot

Olympus Patent Imagines Variable Exposure Over Single Photographs

There’s an obvious weakness to the way that all modern cameras work: open the shutter to start an exposure, close it to finish, but whatever you do, the entire frame is bathed in light for the same length of time. Not if Olympus has anything to do with it though.


Olympus OM-D E-M10 Review: A Classic Camera Made Adorably Small

If point-and-shoot cameras have a future it’s all about zoom, and Olympus just innovated the super-long super-zooms with a badly needed addition we didn’t even know they needed: A red dot zoom like a sniper rifle. That sounds horrible and murderous, but it’s really just good for killing photos.

Rumoured Olympus Kit Lens Looks To Solve Lens Cap Agony

A new Olympus OMD mirrorless camera is (supposedly) just around the corner. Along with it is a new 14-42mm pancake zoom lens. I know, another kit lens — boring.

Leaked Images Of New Olympus OM-D Show Smaller But Similar Body

Last year saw the release of the Olympus OM-D EM-1, a body built for pros with a huge grip and tons of bells and whistles. It looks like Olympus is starting out 2014 with another OM-D body, this time built for a slightly less advanced tier of buyers. These leaked images show the goods.


Rumour: New Olympus Micro 4/3 Lenses On The Way
