Olympus XZ-1, Sony 1080p60 super-autofocus and Panasonic S-Series tipped for CES 2011 compact avalanche
A new Olympus compact camera has leaked ahead of its official release at CES 2011 next week, along with details on a new range of Sony shooters. The Olympus XZ-1, so 43rumors sources say, has the same 1:1.63 size 10.1-megapixel sensor as the Panasonic LX5 but paired with a 28-112mm f/1.8-2.5 lens.
Meanwhile, according to Sony Alpha Rumors, Sony will bring along compact cameras capable of 1080p60 recording in AVCHD format, while contrast auto-focus is tipped to be as fast as that on the Panasonic LUMIX GH2. In fact, the new models are expected to focus in just 0.1s.
