Digital camera manufacturers typically announce and release their new cameras twice a year, with the majority of the new models coming out in February/March.
So what that means is that there’s lots of new photo gear coming our way! It makes winter almost worth it!
Olympus and Canon both made announcements this past week about their new releases. Here’s what is coming.
The new Olympus TG-860 is, indeed, a tough little camera! This new point-and-shoot is designed for active folks on the go, with a rugged, waterproof (to 33 feet) casing that’s resistant to cold temperatures down to 14°F, impact-proof for drops of up to 7ft and crushproof up to 220 lbs. of pressure. Inside, the TG-860 features a 16MP CMOS sensor, a (35mm equivalent) 21-105 mm zoom lens, with 1080p HD video capability, built-in Wi-Fi and GPS and a 180-degree flip-up LCD screen.
Olympus has just announced an updated addition to their OM-D E-M5 camera line. The new OM-D E-M5 Mark II is a Micro Four Thirds interchangeable lens mirrorless camera with lots of new and improved features. Among these: a 5-axis image stabilization system, improved video capture, a 3.0″ 1,037k-dot fully articulating touchscreen LCD monitor and built in Wi-Fi.
