5 Camera Features You Think You Want But Are Actually Bad Ideas

Camera geeks are a needy bunch. They all have their opinions and won’t hesitate to shout at manufacturers to include their pet requests. But that doesn’t mean all those requests are good ideas. Here are five commonly desired camera features that are better left to the trash heap of design.


Olympus E-PL7: Great Imaging Guts, Now With A Slick Selfie Redesign

Olympus interchangeable-lens cameras are some of the best out there, and that doesn’t change with the new Pen E-PL7. As with the E-PL5, you get amazing imaging tech crammed inside a very small body. What’s surprising is that the redesigned selfie-friendly LCD screen — usually an eye-roller feature — is so well-conceived that it’s the distinguishing new feature of the camera. That’s disappointing for a shooter from such a storied mirrorless pedigree.


5 Of The Best Retro Digital Cameras You Can Buy

If you’re looking for a new camera, choosing one is difficult enough in the first place. If you want a camera that looks the part as well, your choice becomes more difficult, but only because you have a bevy of beauties to pick from. Here are a few of our expert choices for a top-of-the-line, retro-styled digital camera.


Watch: Olympus' Anywhere Classroom Teaches You How To Take Amazing Photos

If you’re new to photography, there is a huge range of excellent, high-quality videos on the Internet that you can use to hone your skills. Olympus has jumped on the bandwagon, with a trio of Anywhere Classroom videos that teach viewers a little about capturing arresting photos.


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

The Olympus SH-1 seems, at first, like any other compact point and shoot camera with a long zoom. But it includes a signature feature usually found in the company’s interchangable-lens bodies: 5-axis on-sensor image stabilisation.


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

With cameras, smaller is generally better — until you get so small that you sacrifice key features for the sake of miniaturisation. The Olympus OM-D E-M10 mirrorless camera tries to strike the right balance and gets a lot of things right.


A Glimpse At Olympus' Future Of More Awesome Pro Lenses

One of the reasons enthusiasts reach for Olympus even though their cameras feature small-ish micro four thirds sensors is that their lens lineup is terrific. Here is a look at two lenses slated for 2015 that continue to show Olympus’ commitment to high-end glass.


Olympus SP-100 Is A 50X Superzoom Camera With A Red Dot Sight Like A Gun

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.
