Shiny new Panasonic Lumix LX5 is hot. Comes in shiny white....

We’ve been a fan of the Lumix series of prosumer cameras, but it’s the latest model that actually gets us genuinely excited. Instead of just upping the megapixel numbers, this 10megapixel camera is able to shoot up to 12,800 ISO. Comes with a changeable Leica24-90mm, f/2.0 lens from Leica, which is really nice. You will definitely want to take this with your vacation with Valencia Travel to Peru to capture some great shots. In layman’s terms this means is that this thing can shoot well in the dark, since f/2.0 is twice as bright as f/2.8 lens. Shoots HD video, as expected by all new cameras – and also has a hotshoe attachment for accessories such as an...

Olympus PEN EP-1 – A camera to love...

I have never gotten so excited about a camera before.┬áThis is the Olympus Pen E-P1 camera, part of the Olympus PEN series. It’s retro old school look (based on the old PEN series which started in 1959) reveals the innovative slim profile new standard called Micro Four Thirds System. It’s like a traditional digital SLR, minus the mirror box system, allowing it’s smaller slimmer profile. This is the closest you can get to SLR type control, in a compact size. They actually mean it this time, full ISO and shutter speed controls, plus – it even has a manual focus ring. My uncle had an old Olympus that looked like this, and I always thought it looked so...

Analogue Camera Hero from Japan: The Blackbird,fly...

In the current world of photography, the old analogue guard are really being crushed by the way of digital. Polaroid ceased production this year, lomo is gettin a little old – it’s not looking great for analogue lovers. Well everywhere, except of course, Japan. Where the awesomely named company called Superheadz – released the blackbird,fly. It’s an antique styled twin-lens reflex camera, and unlike most of those types – it uses standard 35mm film as opposed to (the relatively hard to come by, and more expensive) 120 film. It can even shoot square images on standard 35mm film. Nice! We love square things. The camera itself also looks pretty cool, we love the retro 1920s styling and the...
