6 Products Hot new gear HOT NEW GEAR The latest camera gear set to sizzle. The M here stands for mini – but that’s the only thing tiny about this new offering in Olympus Compact System Camera range. It’s small – even by Compact System Camera standards, but it still packs a punch. While it opts out on the mode dial and function buttons of its big brother the E-P3, it still offers the same 12.3 megapixel resolution, fast processor and a nice large 3 inch screen. It is easy to operate and comes in a range of stylish colours to suit the fashion conscious shooter. Plus even though it’s the size of a compact, it has the benefits of the PEN micro four thirds interchangeable lens system – so you can swap your lens to suit your needs. olympus pen e-pm1 This entry level DSLR from Pentax sports a budget price tag alongside high-end features. With 12.4 megapixels on board, a 2.7 inch Live View LCD screen and the ability to shoot HD video (720p) this DSLR offers easy to use features for the newbie shooter. Creative processing and filter modes allow you to explore your creative side, while Auto and Scene modes make it simple for the novice to get great happy snaps every time. Operates on easily replaceable AA batteries. The inclusion of HDR capture allows you to combine 3 bracketed images for great results in low light. An awesome addition to Sony’s interchangeable lens range of cameras, the NEX-C3 delivers DSLR quality in a compact form factor. The world’s smallest Compact System Camera with an APS-C sized sensor, the NEX-C3 weighs in at a miniscule 225g and offers up 16.2 megapixel resolution for superb image quality. Able to shoot 720p HD video and stills, this is a great go-anywhere choice for both the novice and the advanced shooter. A new ‘Photo Creativity’ interface puts professional controls in reach of the amateur by replacing tech terms with easily understandable names such as ‘brightness’ and ‘background defocus’. A rear mounted control wheel allows you to scroll through effects and see changes in real time. A great upgrade from the NEX 3. sony neX-C3 pentaX K-X 006_Bpics6_HotGear_v3.indd 6 31/08/11 11:18 AM
