Olympus PEN Lite/E-PL3

The latest Olympus 4/3 interchangeable lens camera might carry the word 'lite' in its description, but there are plenty of features inside. The Olympus E-PL3, known as the PEN Lite, packs many of the same features as the non-Lite PEN model, E-P3.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3

The Lumix GF3 continues the trend of compact digital cameras that give you the flexibility to change the lens, but is even smaller and less bulky than its two predecessors.

Instead of the boxy, rectangular body of the GF1 and GF2, the GF3 trims off the top slightly, with the body now sloping down from the lens holder.

Olympus Xz-1

Olympus has launched its answer to the Panasonic LX5 and Canon S95.

Ricoh GXR

Instead of having a camera body and then lenses you screw in for wide angle or zoom, Ricoh's new GXR model actually comes in two parts.

First, there's the body with an image sensor, a 7.5cm LCD display, flash and a card slot for the memory.

No image problem with new zoom lens

RAPID advances in technology now mean that small cameras can be as versatile as their larger brothers.

The Pentax ESPI0 115 is a good example of the development of small cameras.

A mere 125 mm x 70 mm x 50 mm and weighing only 290 grams, it is a fully automatic leaf shutter camera with an auto-focus zoom lens.
