Olympus expanded its DSLR line-up today with the E-600. The E-600 is essentially a lower-cost version of the E-620 which was launched earlier this year, but with a few changes that help reduce the cost and differentiate between the two models.

Changes in the camera’s angle while the shutter is open can significantly alter captured images. Shift-based shaking generally occurs when a camera moves parallel to the imagining scene and is most pronounced in macro photography and other close-range shooting. Hybrid IS uses... Read more...

But perhaps the biggest push toward putting video into everyone's hands, started with the introduction of the inexpensive pocket camcorder in 2006. This new camcorder design did not resemble the size and shape of what we traditionally expect a camcorder to look like; instead it resembled a thick candy bar... Read more...
