This week we were invited by Olympus to come over to Hamburg, Germany, where Olympus held a big press conference. During the meeting Olympus unveiled their new series of digital compact cameras just ahead of Photokina 2006. Though the weather conditions in Hamburg were pretty bad, a lot or rain, we managed to get our hands on some of the compact Mju models and, how convenient, some waterproof housings. The whole Mju-series have been upgraded and are now offering more features and higher ranked specifications like wide-angle zoom and 10 Megapixel resolution. The compact digital cameras like the Olympus Mju 740 or Mju 750 are stylish designed and easy to handle. You will find additional product information at the special Photokina 2006 report.

The market for digital compact cameras is steady but does no longer show a significant growth. Within the camera market, the digital SLR camera expanded its market share which gave camera manufacturers like Nikon and Canon a boost in sales. However, the DSLR segment is changing and although the traditional DSLR is still the most important one for consumer and professional photographers, a new segment is grabbing market share and attention from the public. Micro Four Thirds, and other system cameras from Sony and Samsung, could change today’s market share. Canon and Nikon will not give away their market share for free… Photokina 2012 Imaging & Trade show will be the place to be and to get the latest information from all camera manufacturers and their digital cameras.
