Olympus OM-D E-M10 hands-on: Tiny retro snapper packs a punch

Olympus OM-D E-M10 hands-on: Tiny retro snapper packs a punch

Olympus has had a run of success with its OM-D series of cameras, not least the E-M5 we reviewed last year, and now there's the new OM-D E-M10 to carry that torch, a model the company claims rivals APS-C DSLRs while being considerably smaller. In fact, at 63.9mm deep and 516g with the new 14-42mm EZ kit lens, the OM-D E-M10 is even smaller than the body alone of Canon's EOS Rebel SL1. We caught up with Olympus ahead of the new camera's launch to find out what makes the E-M10 so special, what the company had to do to pack so much into so little space, and to see the new lenses - including an updated version of the surprisingly popular fish-eye body cap lens - to go along with it.

Sony QX Lens Cameras work without smartphone aid

Sony QX Lens Cameras work without smartphone aid

Though we've seen the Sony "Lens Camera" devices appear connected to smartphones before, today a set of press photos suggests that the user might be able to use these devices without a companion smart unit at all. Where before we'd assumed that it was the smartphone - or tablet - that allowed a Sony Lens Camera to be controlled, today a set of photos that very much appear to be press-quality (aka real from Sony, more than likely) show a couple of users working with these devices without being physically attached to the smartphone in hand.
