Competent 12megapixel interchangeable lens camera suitable for above and underwater use, Live View via bright 2.7inch wide viewing angle LCD, Micro Four Thirds standard means a good selection of available lenses and adapters, Generally excellent picture q...
No optical viewfinder, Inconsistent onscreen menus often cryptic and confusing, No underwater modes, Can't operate popup flash once camera is inside housing, Housing only has optical flash ports
In essence, what's been happening over the past few years is that digital camera prices have come way down. For a couple hundred dollars, you now have your choice of dozens of supremely competent compacts, all brimming with features. While most of those u...

About 47 years ago, Olympus went out on a limb to introduce a half-frame camera that featured interchangeable lenses and an image that measured 18x24mm rather than the movie film-derived 36x24mm film size. We are beyond film at this point, favoring dig...

It’s hardly a secret that Canon and Nikon dominate the DSLR market. Rather than beating their heads against the wall by competing directly against them, other manufacturers are zeroing in a new type of camera—one with a large imaging sensor, smaller si...

Excellent build quality; very good photo quality; can shoot raw+JPEG in every mode, including Art Filters and iAuto
Slow, with sluggish autofocus, short battery life, low-resolution LCD
The first round of interchangeable-lens cameras offered a lot to appeal to enthusiasts, but at prices upward of $800, they weren't quite a no-brainer for point-and-shooters in search of an upgrade. The bigger sensors in these models can generally deli...
