Panasonic has announced the world's first Micro Four Thirds system camera,
the LUMIX DMC-G1, the world's smallest and lightest digital interchangeable
lens camera, weighing in at approximately 385 grams (0.85 lbs). Based on the
new Micro Four Thirds System standard, the LUMIX G1 eliminates the internal
mirror structure that defines digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) cameras, thus
reducing the size and weight by nearly half. With the mirror-less system, the
G1's flange back, which is the distance between the mount and the image
sensor, has been reduced from 40 mm -- as specified in the Four Thirds
System -- to approximately 20 mm.

Swift's Ultra Lite collection are said to be the first and only binoculars
to incorporate two different types of rubber to improve durability, shock-absorption
and comfort. These new binoculars combine harder rubber on their outer edges
for better protection against bangs and bumps. Softer rubber is used in the
area where you grip the binoculars, thereby reducing user fatigue. The softer
rubber also provides a superior grip in any weather condition, wet or dry. This
same technology is also used to create a non-slip focusing knob on these binoculars.
The dual density covering also aids the nature photographer by keeping these
binoculars quiet when rubbing against their clothes.

Olympus has announced its new super-telephoto Zuiko Digital ED 70-300mm (f4.0-f5.6)
lens. The lens' allows users to get up-close (38 inches / 0.96 meters)
to subjects when taking macro shots. It is compatible with all E-System and
Four-Thirds system cameras. Zuiko Digital Specific Lenses each house their own
CPU and offer the user the ability to upgrade the firmware as new technology

communication between the lens and the camera body, enabling better compensation
for common distortions such as "shading" (darkening of the edges
of an image that may sometimes occur in photographs) or "barrel distortion"
(the bowing of vertical lines).
