Fujifilm X-E1 Black with 18-55mm OIS lens
ePHOTOzine has reviewed the Fujifilm X-E1 – the premium mirrorless compact system camera features the same 16 megapixel sensor as the X-Pro1, and comes with a new 18-55mm f/2.8-4.0 OIS kit lens, 6fps continuous shooting, Full HD video recording, 2.36million dot OLED EVF, and film simulation mode. Here’s what they have to say:

“The Fujifilm X-Pro1 and X-E1 are the definition of retro digital cameras, and the moment you pick it up, you’ll be reminded of an old film camera from the past. With manual controls on the lens and body it is very easy to adjust settings and the menus and controls are well thought out and easy to get to grips with. The electronic viewfinder is excellent with an extremely high resolution and is great to use, although it’s a shame the 2.8inch screen isn’t larger and a higher resolution.”

ePHOTOzine and AP has reviewed the new Olympus PEN Mini E-PM2 – the new Micro Four Thirds camera features a 16 megapixel sensor, 8fps continuous shooting, 3 inch touch screen, Art filters and effects, built in image stabilisation and full HD video with stereo sound. The Olympus PEN Mini E-PM2 is available for £499 with kit lens and free 8gb Wi-Fi card.

Sony NEX-6 with 16-50mm lensePHOTOzine has posted the first full review of the Sony NEX-6, the latest mirrorless compact system camera from Sony – it features a 16 megapixel APS-C sensor, high resolution OLED electronic viewfinder, Wi-Fi, 3inch screen and 10fps continuous shooting. It’s also available with the new collapsible 16-50mm Sony OSS lens, making it much more compact as a kit zoom compared to previous Sony NEX cameras.

Panasonic Lumix GH3There are two new reviews of the Panasonic Lumix GH3, and currently the only full reviews of the new premium camera from Panasonic. You can find the reviews at ePHOTOzine, and Photography BLOG. The Panasonic Lumix GH3 is a weather sealed Micro Four Thirds camera with Digital SLR styling (Panasonic call it a DSLM), and it features Full HD video at up to 50 and 72mbps, with stereo sound. There is a tilting 3 inch touch screen on the back as well as a 1.744million dot EVF.

Here’s what ePHOTOzine had to say about the camera:

“Where the GH3 really excels in video recording… with all the options under the sun, with AVCHD, MOV or MP4 recording up to 50 and 72mbps full HD, with stereo sound, mic and headphone sockets as well as HDMI out for continuous recording on an external device.”

Here’s what Photography BLOG had to say:

“The GH3’s still image quality is much improved, especially the high ISO performance. Images shot at ISO 125-1600 are clean, with a little noise appearing at 3200 and more at the still very usable setting of 6400.”
