Safari version of the D-Lux 4

It seems Leica is going with the D-lux 4 the same way as the Leica 8.2. After the Titan version it s the time of the Safari D-Lux4 ersion. When can you buy it? Probably starting from August and a very Leica price…1.000$! But remember the production will be limited to 6.000 pieces only.

E-620 Reviewed by photographyblog – deemed “essential”


Photographyblog.com had a crack at the e-620 and awarded it their highest certification. A quote from their conclusion:

“It’s one of the cheapest and most full-featured mid-range SLR cameras, with great ease-of use, compact size and light weight, and excellent image quality in good light. This camera certainly lives up to its official billing as “The Olympus E-620: All our knowledge in one”, and is our pick of the current range of Olympus DSLRs.”

(FT2) Samsung NX image of the E-P1 counterpart?


Beware this is probably a fake concept render of the first Samsung NX camera. What’s interesting is the clear rangefinder design with an EVF positioned on the top left of the body, like the porro prism viewfinders of the e-300/e-330 .
Anyway the real camera will be released in a few months. It will be interesting to see what Samsung (and of course Panasonic) will have to offer against the E-P1. The competition is on!
