The Leica X1 looks like an analog camera. It has a compact body with a high quality finish and offers two setup dials on the top. If both dials are set to A-mode the camera will set aperture and shutter speed value automatically. If the photographer changes the aperture setting manually to a value between f2,8 and f16 the camera will work in aperture priority mode and set up shutter speed automatically. Similarly, a change of the shutter speed dial and setting the aperture-dial to A will switch the Leica X1 into “shutter speed priority mode. It’s a very efficient and easy system. The camera doesn’t offer any scene modes.

The X1 is Leica’s newest compact camera. It is based on an APS-C-sized image sensor and a lens system with fixed focal length with 36mm (35mm film equivalent). The camera has a small and compact body, offers easy handling and creates very crisp images.

In recognition of the centenary of Victor Hasselblad's birth on March 8, 2006,
Hasselblad has announced the Hasselblad 503CWD Anniversary Kit, a prestigious
high-end photographic system that offers state-of-the-art digital capture technology
elegantly integrated with a classically designed Hasselblad 503CW body.



Combining the rugged reliability of the black and chrome V System body, with its
range of high performance, central shutter-based lenses, and the technology of
Hasselblad's new CFV digital back, the exclusive Hasselblad 503CWD perfectly melds
the heritage of the old Hasselblad with the focus of the new Hasselblad on digital
high-end photography to create a new digital workhorse. Of undoubted appeal to
the Hasselblad connoisseur, the camera delivers the perfect blend of versatility
and simplicity in a compact, professional tool that gives the user complete control
over digital image capture and is a pleasure to operate.



The 503CWD Anniversary kit will be supplied as a limited edition of 500 cameras,
each one numbered and engraved with Victor Hasselblad's signature. Reassuringly
solid, the kit comprises a 503CWD body with waist-level finder, specially marked
focusing screen and chrome winding lever, a Zeiss Planar CFE 2.8/80mm lens and
a CFV digital back, and will be supplied with a beautifully produced book marking
Victor's anniversary.



For existing Hasselblad V System users, the new CFV digital back, the successor
of the V96C back, will also be available separately. Built to match the design
and functionality of the Hasselblad V System cameras, it can be easily and elegantly
integrated into an existing Hasselblad system, enabling the photographer to work
in exactly the same manner and with their preferred equipment, but with the productivity
benefits of digital photography over film.



MSRP Pricing: Hasselblad 503CWD

Anniversary Kit: $12,995

CFV: $9,995



Product availability will be the end of March. The Hasselblad website has been
updated with new product details.

The Olympus E-P1 is said to be the world’s smallest 12.3-megapixel interchangeable lens system camera that blends the high-quality still images of a digital single lens reflex (DSLR) with High Definition (HD) video, stereo Linear PCM audio recording and In-Camera Creativity within an ultra-portable body.

Olympus has a long history of miniaturizing camera technology. The first-generation Olympus PEN appeared in 1959 and led the way to high-quality images in a small package, matching SLR cameras’ performance of the era.Today, Olympus utilized its miniaturizing and engineering expertise to create a slimmer body, removing the optical viewfinder and mirror box found inside a traditional DSLR, to create a small but high-quality interchangeable lens camera. By reducing its lens mount diameter, Olympus also enabled the production of smaller and lighter lenses to match the E-P1’s body size.

 The camera’s retro-style metal body design is available in either silver or white with accompanying new small and lightweight Olympus M. ZUIKO Micro Four Thirds lenses: 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 (28-84mm equivalent) and 17mm f2.8 (34mm equivalent).
