Camera House : Better Pictures 6
8 Products Hot new gear If you like the sound of Olympus Compact System Camera cameras but don’t want all the bells and whistles of the new E-P3, you might want to consider the E-PL3 (the L is for light). It still sports the 12.3 megapixel resolution and shoots great pics in low light but dials back on some of the higher end image settings and skips the OLED screen. You can still swap in any compatible lens from the Olympus range and opt for manual features if you desire. This camera is ideal for the newbie shooter that is not quite ready to graduate to a DSLR. There’s plenty of AUTO options to get you started but the ability to swap lenses makes this a cut above your average compact. olympus pen e-pl3 Equipped with Sony’s translucent mirror technology, the A55 offers shooters all the features of a DSLR in a pint-sized body. Armed with an APS-C HD CMOS sensor, it shoots stunning 16 megapixel high res images at up to 10 frames per second. 3D sweep panorama and a built-in GPS add to this camera’s list of massive features. Fast auto focus makes capturing all the action – whether it is still or full HD video – as easy as 1-2-3. Wanting to use your new Nikon D7000 for more than just taking happy snaps? Consider the purchase of this ‘movie kit’ and go from snapper to filmmaker in an instant. The movie kit adds a wide angle zoom (the 18-105mm VR lens which has the bonus of a silent wave motor and vibration reduction), the ME-1 microphone (which really improves sound quality when recording D-Movies, helping to eliminate camera noise), the ENEL-15 Battery Grip (which extends your battery life) and a Hand Grip for steadier shooting.
