    By 21 March 2014

    Kodak teased its new Micro Four Thirds compact system camera, the PixPro S-1, during a press conference in China back in January. And it's only now that we've got to see the camera for real. The PixPro S-1 joins the Panasonic and Olympus fold when it...

    Hands-on: Panasonic Lumix GX7 review

    By 1 August 2013

    From one to seven: the Panasonic Lumix GX7 looks to turn up the dial on the premium yet small compact system camera (CSC) market thanks to a bulging feature set and build quality that will hold plenty of appeal for enthusiast photographers. Pocket-lint...

    Olympus Pen E-P5 review

    By 19 July 2013

    Subtlety of design has always been one of the distinctions between the Olympus Pen series and other compact system cameras. In the case of the E-P5, Olympus has put its name centre stage - quite literally, as the shiny "Olympus Pen" branding across the...

    Panasonic Lumix G6 review

    By 3 July 2013

    The Panasonic Lumix G6 - cue Far East Movement's "like a G6" lyric taking on yet another meaning - is the company's most tech-laden compact system camera to date. Much the previous Lumix G5 model with added pep, the G6 sports a new design, while squeezing...

    Panasonic Lumix GF6 review

    By 14 May 2013

    The Panasonic Lumix GF6 is far from just a subtle upgrade to the series. Even though there's still no hotshoe or viewfinder - something we doubt will ever make it to the GF-series - it's otherwise just about the most feature-packed entry-level compact...

    Hands-on: Olympus PEN E-P5 review

    By 10 May 2013

    The Olympus Pen E-P5 is all about its pro-spec quirks and build quality charm. The successor to 2011's E-P3, the latest Olympus Micro Four Thirds interchangeable lens camera has a mixture of headline features to set it apart from the ever-busying crowd....

    Hands on: Panasonic Lumix G6 review

    By 24 April 2013

    Like a G6: Panasonic's speedy new compact system camera has landed, but the Lumix G6 doesn't come with its own Far East Movement pop theme tune. Instead it comes loaded with a 16-megapixel sensor, the latest Venus processing engine, a built-in OLED viewfinder...

    Panasonic Lumix GF6 pictures and hands-on

    By 9 April 2013

    Panasonic has redesigned its GF-series compact system camera with the introduction of the GF6 - the camera which adds Wi-Fi and NFC among bags of other features and also calls time on the GF5 which it will replace. Pocket-lint was shown the new, more...

    Hands on: Panasonic Lumix GH3 review

    By 8 October 2012

    Panasonic is trying to promote its brand new Lumix GH3 as "the first DSLM". That's "digital single lens mirrorless" for the uninitiated, thought it sounds - obviously and intentionally, no doubt - a lot like "DSLR" to us. Hardly a surprise then that it...

    First Look: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 review

    By 5 April 2012

    The Lumix GF5, or Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 to use its formal title, is the latest G Series compact system camera from Panasonic. It replaces the Lumix GF3 and the similarity is instantly recognisable from the distinctive design. Pocket-lint had the chance...

    First Look: Olympus OM-D E-M5 review

    By 17 February 2012

    The Olympus OM-D is a new line of Micro Four Thirds cameras, pitched above the current Pen line. The E-M5 is the first model in this new range, which Olympus is pushing out with the tagline "the beginning of something new". But how new is it? Importantly,...

    First Look: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 review

    By 7 November 2011

    The new Panasonic Lumix GX1 bridges the gap between the compact Lumix GF3 and the mini DSLR-alike G3 and GH3 models. As such, it sits on the more compact side of the Lumix G series range, but still offers a whole host of controls and features to appease...

    Olympus E-PL3 review

    By 29 August 2011

    Priced just a pound dearer than Panasonic’s rival Micro Four Thirds compact system camera, the Lumix DMC-GF3, and bundled with M.Zuiko Digital 14-42mm F/3.5-5.6 II T lens kit zoom, the Olympus E-PL3 is also being touted as the "Pen Lite". It sits between...

    Olympus Pen E-P3 review

    By 9 August 2011

    The latest Olympus Pen, the E-P3, adds some long-needed features to the series. While the first two E-P installments lacked a built in flash, the E-P3 finally delivers on this front. And any moans of slow autofocus from previous models should also now...
