Photokina 2010 report : I had the opportunity to shoot for a very short time some pictures with a full production Olympus E-5 camera at the press day of Photokina 2010. The test photos are made with an Olympus ZUIKO Digital 12-60mm f/2.8-4 lens. The Olympus E-5 camera was introduced just before the Photokina 2010 started and is Olympus' most recent Four Thirds high-end DSLR camera. The new Olympus E-5 camera features a new Live MOS sensor and a newly developed powerful TruePic V+ engine. The Olympus E-5 camera should bring the Four Thirds quality to the next level.

Nikon D7000 review

Posted by: Dennis Hissink Wednesday 15th, September 2010

Photokina 2010 reviews : Nikon is extending its D-series with a new SLR camera, the Nikon D7000. This is part of a nice series of SLR cameras, the D3100, D5000 and now also the Nikon D7000. A Nikon D9000 might just be the next model… The new Nikon D7000 is a whole new DSLR camera generation and falls between the Nikon D5000 and the D90, at least in terms of pricing. The D90 is still part of the picture, at least until it gets a successor (the Nikon D9000?). This Nikon DSLR is a camera aimed at the serious amateur photographer and offers a full package of camera-settings for creative photography as well as videography, as the Nikon D7000 supports Full HD 1080p video.
