    The Olympus Stylus Tough 8010 & 6020 are begging for pain and suffering

    Do you live an extreme lifestyle? Do you climb mountains by day and fight baddies by night? Do you enjoy such activities as Bigfoot hunting, Yeti racing, or Sasquatch breeding? Do you have children? If the answer is yes to any of the previous questions, Olympus has two new cameras for your consideration: the Style Tough 8010 or 6020. Read More

  • Here's the Olympus SP-800UZ & SP-600UZ megazoom cams

    Here's the Olympus SP-800UZ & SP-600UZ megazoom cams

    Olympus isn’t new a new player in the megazoom game. The camera company’s megazoom line is older than some Jonas Brothers’ fans. And it shows. The new kits are officially drool worthy. Read More

    Olympus announcing something soon

    Olympus is announcing.. something.. soon. We think. It kinda looks like a camera. But it might be fingernail clippers, or perhaps prosthetic hands. We’re not sure. Read More

  • Olympus E-P2 not just official, but for sale too

    Olympus E-P2 not just official, but for sale too

    So we told mere moments ago (in internet time) that Olympus had officially announced the leaked and rumored E-P2, the latest in their line of EVIL cameras. The good news: they’re not just announced, you can buy one online too! Read More

    The Olympus Pen E-P1 gets bedazzled with Swarovski crystals

    Chances are if you, or your spouse, is the type that gets excited about gadgets covered in Swarovski crystals, then you probably don’t care that Peter found the Olympus E-P1 to be just an average performer and nothing special. You also probably have the disposable cash to pay a $2,000 premium over the sticker price. Read More

  • Olympus E-P2 gets official – but will it sell?

    Olympus E-P2 gets official – but will it sell?


    Yeah, that leak did a number on the official “release moment” of Olympus’ new micro four-thirds camera. All the stats are there, but I forbore from weighing in on the thing. I’m cautious but bullish about the M4/3 phenomenon; they’re legit to be sure, but this first generation isn’t going to break any sales records. They’re too expensive and too… Read More

  • Olympus E-P2 specs and pics leaked

    Olympus E-P2 specs and pics leaked


    Someone really ought to explain to the British Journal of Photography how to keep a secret. They leaked the Nikon D3s early, and now they’ve dropped the new Olympus E-P2 as well, which was expected to be announced later tonight. I guess they just think they’re too cool for school. Or maybe they read the embargo time wrong. To be fair, much of the announcement was already… Read More

  • More Olympus E-P2 news than you probably care about

    More Olympus E-P2 news than you probably care about

    The second generation in Olympus’s retro micro four thirds line is almost here. Olympus China leaked that a few days ago. But this time around a few more leaks emerge and show that that the E-P2 might have the same body design as the E-P1, which isn’t really a bad thing, I guess. Read More

  • Olympus China confirms the E-P2 Micro Four Thirds camera

    Olympus China confirms the E-P2 Micro Four Thirds camera

    There was a rumor a few weeks ago that Olympus was going to launch another Micro Four Thirds camera before the end of the year dubbed the E-P2. This guy was suppose to have a rangefinder and hopefully be done up in the same retro fashion as the E-P1. Well, it looks like the camera will indeed be announced soon according to this somewhat official leak. Read More

    Olympus pulls the trigger on the E-600 DSLR

    Big news (not really) this AM from Olympus with the announcement of the E-600 DSLR. Looks like another entry-level(ish) digital SLR. Big notables for the 12.3-megapixel shooter include a swiveling 2.7-inch LCD and slew of fancy art filters. That’s seriously about it, folks. The E-600 coupled with a 14-42mm f3.5/5.6 kit lens will retail for $600 in November. Read More

    Olympus reveals its new point-and-shoot line; I'll keep this brief

    I’ve made no secret of my abhorrence of camera companies releasing their stuff at midnight eastern time without letting us know, but behold my revenge! I’m only writing up one of the four cameras Olympus released just a little while ago. (Maniacal laughter) Read More

    The Olympus E-P1 is now available for pre-order

    The Olympus E-P1 is shaping up to be one of the must have cameras of 2009. The camera was just announced last week after months of speculation, but it’s finally available for pre-order from numerous retailers. The prices are just what we thought they would be with the body running $750 and a 3x zoom kit costing $799. The rest of the options go up from there. Read More

  • Is that a dead pixel on my Olympus E-P1?

    Is that a dead pixel on my Olympus E-P1?

    Yep. That 100 percent crop shows a dead pixel close to center on the Olympus E-P1. Read More

  • Olympus E-P1 first hands-on

    Olympus E-P1 first hands-on

    So I’m at the Hotel on Rivington in Manhattan at the Olympus press conference and we’re getting the first hands on with the Olympus E-P1 in North America. Dana Wollman from Laptop was kind enough to be my hand model so these aren’t my hands on the Olympus, but I am shooting with one. I’ve included two test images shot at ISO 200 and ISO 6400 shot with the 14-42mm lens. Read More

  • The now official Olympus E-P1 digital pen does retro right

    The now official Olympus E-P1 digital pen does retro right


    Well, it’s here: The Olympus E-P1 Micro Four Thirds digital camera. The E-P1, or digital pen, packs in almost all the E-620‘s magic into an absolute tiny and gorgeous body. A body that throws-back to the the late 50′s when Olympus launched the first Pen camera. Just like back then, pro photographers and amateurs alike are instantly falling in love with this shooter. Except… Read More

    Olympus to launch a Micro Four Thirds cam soon, no mention of the retro concept

    Panasonic has already jumped into the Micro Four Thirds market with the Lumix DMC-GH1. That camera got most in the digicam community excited about the standard that promises interchangeable lens on a smaller camera that’s equipped with an DLSR sensor. Now, a report suggests that Olympus is finally prepping a camera based on that standard. Too bad that we don’t know if the model will… Read More

  • Olympus announces the E-450 DSLR

    Olympus announces the E-450 DSLR

    Having manhandled Olympus’ DSLRs at last year’s US Open, I can say with certainty that their tiny line of SLRs have come a long way in the last few years. Further strengthening the line is the E-450. The 10-megapixel shooter features a 2.7-inch LCD, Live View, Four Thirds lens mount and three Art Filters. It’s just as small as the E-420 measuring in at… Read More

    Olympus Micro Four Thirds cameras due this summer?

    If there is one thing for sure, it’s that this Olympus camera concept has captured the hearts of geeks every way. Hopefully when Olympus’ Micro Four Thirds finally drop, there will be one model just like this retro mock-up. The only thing is that there are conflicting reports about when the camera is actually due. Read More

    E-620: Olympus unveils new entry-level DSLR

    Olympus today unveiled a new entry-level DSLR, which will go on sale in the US in May (Japan gets the E-620 with 12.3MP in March, Europe one month later but for a higher price). Olympus tried to incorporate the main features of the E-30 and E-520 in a small and light body. Read More
