Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II unveiled: 16MP, 5-axis stabilization

The Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II camera has been officially unveiled after months of speculation and leaks. This is the successor to the Olympus OM-D E-M10, a popular model in its own right.

Olympus promises its newest OM-D model is both small and more ergonomic than previous models. The most notable feature with the camera is 5-Axis Voice Coil Motor (VCM) Image Stabilization, but that’s hardly all it has to offer, with other features including everything from integrated photo filters to advanced low-light shooting.

Graava action cam auto-creates highlight reels

Graava action cam auto-creates highlight reels

Action cameras can, when put to proper use, produce incredible videos. That assumes the footage is edited with an element of skill, which is the sticking point for some users — as clear as a video may be, poor editing detracts from the subject. Enter Graava’s new action cam, a small camera that somewhat resembles Sony’s own Action Cam, but with a related app that does the heavy lifting (editing) itself. On the most simple end of the spectrum, Graava’s app allows the user to select how long they want their video, and it does the rest on its own.

Here are DxO’s ONE iPhone add-on camera samples

Snap-on cameras for smartphones aren't new, but DxO's ONE claims to take mobile photography to another level, and it has the samples to prove it.

DxO ONE promises DSLR photos from iPhone add-on

A snap-on camera promising the quality of a DSLR but as an iPhone attachment is hoping to shake up smartphone photography. DxO Labs is best known for its pro-shutterbug software and occasional camera judgements, but the company is wading into hardware for the first time with the DxO ONE, a 3.8oz, 2.65-inch tall metal add-on that brings a 1-inch 20.2-megapixel sensor to your iPhone. Hooked up via the handset's Lightning port, the question is whether it's worth spending the cost of another iPhone on an accessory.

Panasonic has launched its Lumix DMC-CM1 hybrid camera in the United States, where it will be selling the device at its retailers and online.

The 1-inch sensor in particular enables the camera to take higher quality images than typical mobile cameras.
