Olympus PEN E-P1

Oh man, I remember buying a Panasonic DMC-LX2 just for the old-school look of it, but Olympus PEN E-P1 gives me an even stronger crave. Olympus launched the original half-frame film PEN in 1959 and now this light-weight little device with interchangeable lens is available in a modern, digital form.

Besides the striking looks you get 12.3 megapixels, TruePic V image processing engine to provide high quality stills (equivalent to traditional SLR’s according to Olympus, but you know), 3 inch display, level gauge to help you shoot straight horizons, HDMI output, stereo audio recording and the possibility to record 720p HD movies. Software-wise you get face detection, automatic shadow adjustment and manual focus assistance.

The PEN will start selling in July 2009, no word on pricing though.

Ricoh CX1

Instead of just joining the megapixel wars Ricoh just announced the CX1, a compact and robust digital camera offering quite a set of nice features while just having 9 megapixels.

So, you’re getting a 1/2.3″ type CMOS sensor with a 7.1x optical zoom lens, a hi-speed 120 frames(!) per second fast shot mode (limited to VGA though) and a mode called Dynamic Range Double Shot Mode allowing you to take two shots at different exposures which are then blended together. Other than that you can have it take up to seven shots with different focus, allowing you to pick the best one later.

The CX1 will be in stores from March 13th with a £300 price tag (about $430). CX1 Product Page
