With split-bodied EXILIM EX-FR10, Casio?s freestyle camera line learns new tricks

    We've seen some fairly unusual digital camera form factors over the years, but Casio's EXILIM TR series -- which launched back in 2011 with the Casio TRYX -- has to rank as one of the most unusual of the bunch. The company may just have topped the TRYX, though, with the announcement of the Casio EXILIM EX-FR10. This unusual 14-megapixel camera consists of separate, dockable lens and display modules that can be used to provide a remote viewfinder image, shoot with lens and monitor pointing in the same direction for selfies,...

Olympus 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 EZ Lens Review: A light, compact ?kit lens? alternative

    We've just taken the wraps off our latest lens review over on SLRgear, the Olympus 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 EZ. It seems Olympus has been in a continual development cycle for the kit lens of its cameras: the Olympus 14-42mmEZ lens is no less than the seventh lens they have designed in this category since they started designing for digital, and the third in the M.Zuiko series in particular. Olympus has continued to refine the design of this lens, making it even smaller and more automated than previously. The lens in particular saves...

Rokinon offers affordable manual focus fisheye lens for Nikon 1-mount

    Looking for an affordable fisheye lens for your Nikon 1-series compact system camera? If so, the folks at Nikon Rumors have spotted one that might be of interest given a list price of just US$200 and the magical words "Made in Japan". The Rokinon 7.5mm f/8 RMC fisheye lens doesn't appear on the company's own website, and seems to have been introduced in ninja stealth mode, with no official announcement that we can find. It sports a metal lens barrel and four all-glass elements, and has a manual-focus design. As a fisheye with a...

Cold War camera: 1950s Berlin in color (part 1)

Ten years after the end of WWII, Germany was rebuilding. Cities like Berlin, which had been severely damaged during the war were emerging from the rubble as the 'Wirtschaftswunder' or 'economic miracle' transformed West Germany.
