Pentax Q offers interchangeable lenses in tiniest package ever

pentax_q

The idea of being able to swap out your lens for certain purposes had previously been restricted to people who rock the SLR. That changed with the arrival of the NEX series from Sony and the micro four-thirds cameras from Olympus and Panasonic. Now, Pentax is taking that philosophy and going even smaller with the Pentax Q.

Panasonic GF2 vs. Olympus E-PL2: Which micro four-thirds is for you?

pana-vs-oly

I’m a big fan of the micro four-thirds format. You get the flexibility of interchangeable lenses, a larger sensor, and all kinds of SLR-like controls in a package that isn’t much bigger than a point-and-shoot. But which camera reigns supreme?

Of course, fans of the micro four-thirds format probably could have predicted that an Olympus E-PL2 was in the works. After all, Panasonic just recently announced the pending availability of its GF2 to follow up on the GF1. So, what is new with the upcoming Olympus E-PL2? Well, aesthetically, it looks pretty much the same as the E-PL1.

When it comes to digital cameras, it usually pays to stick with the bigger names in the industry. You can feel a little better with a Canon or Nikon in your hands, because they’re trusted and true. Even so, the Poco Pro camera from Iain Sinclair might turn a few heads with its credit card-sized footprint and slew of features.

Samsung’s dual screen digital cameras for self-portrait crazed individuals

samsung-ffd-02

Taking self portraits can be hard with regular digital cameras. The preview screen is on the back, while the lens is on the front. We usually end up with the “MySpace angle” for most shots and the framing can end up terrible, but sometimes it’s fun. Samsung “fixed” that with an inevitable change, the addition of the second screen.

Apple iPod touch 4G with 2-megapixel camera “leaked”

ipod-touch-200

For the longest time, there were only a handful of things that separated the iPod touch from the Apple iPhone. The cellular connectivity is an obvious one, but it seems that one of the other differentiating factors is also going to be removed. According to the most recent leaks, the upcoming fourth-generation iPod touch will boast a two-megapixel digital camera. Up until now, the iPod touch has been lacking in the photography department, so this is probably a good change for the better. I don’t think it will cannibalize iPhone sales any more than the current iPod touch does.

Samsung NX10 Hybrid Camera: DSLR Sensor, No SLR

Confused? Allow me to explain. Most people will agree that digital SLRs typically take better pictures than consumer-level point-and-shoot cameras, but most people will also agree that the P&S is a lot easier to carry around that a huge honking SLR. How can you reconcile these concerns? Samsung has apparently come up with its own […]

It seems that Nikon could have the answer, because the camera giant is reportedly working on a unit that integrates a pocket projector. You’ve probably seen some of these pico projectors in the past. They’re about […]
