Olympus releases new flagship ToughMarch 2, 2011 - 4:30 pm
The TG-810 is 10m waterproof and 100kg crushproof

Olympus released a new flagship Tough compact camera.
The new TG-810's main feature is that it is crushproof to a weight of 100kg, so an adult can tread on it and it’ll keep going fine. Thanks to double-durable lens and port technology, the TG-810 is also waterproof to 10m, shockproof, freezeproof and scratch resistant. It's also the first camera DomePort has heard of with built-in depth sensor for warning you if you go too deep. The i-Underwater Snapshot, one of four underwater settings, detects when the camera is submerged and adjusts white balance automatically to ensure correct exposure, also in optional 3D.
The TG-810 also features three-sensor GPS & Electronic Compass. The new tough compact has high-resolution glare-resistant HyperCrystal III LCD. It also features 5x wide optical zoom lens (28-140mm).

The OLYMPUS TOUGH TG-810 is available for €299 from mid-March 2011.

Canon announced two entry-level dSLRSFebruary 7, 2011 - 9:23 am
EOS 600D is the new flagship Rebel

Canon announced today the EOS 600D | Rebel T3i and EOS 1100D | Rebel T3 entry level Digital SLR Cameras. The EOS 600D will be Canon's new upper entry level flagship Rebel, offering easy-to-use features for beginning photographers. The EOS 1100D will provide a more attractively priced option for beginners.

Canon EOS 600D | Rebel T3i
Aiming to make everyone a better photographer Canon has enhanced the capabilities of the EOS 600D's automatic mode with new Scene Intelligent Auto technology, re-branding the green mode dial setting with a boxed "A+" design. This new camera setting now takes Picture Style into account as part of the camera's "Auto" setting. By analyzing faces, colors, brightness, movement, and contrast, the camera will dynamically adjust picture-style parameters to match the subject and control vividness. On the new EOS 600D, Picture Style Auto is also taken into account as part of the new Scene Intelligent Auto technology. So when the camera is photographing a face it will reproduce more natural skin tones or blue skies for more vivid landscapes, a flashy red car for more saturated color and evening sunsets for more expressive images.
