EPL6

Announced in 2013, the Olympus EPL6 is only now coming to the US after being available in only Japan and Europe. At a very affordable price of $299, the camera sports a 16MP MOS sensor, TruePic VI engine, a 3 inch 614k dot LCD, 35 AF points, 3 axis in-body IS and a timelapse mode. The camera is positioned below the EP5, EPL7 and the OMD EM10; which both have many more features than the EPL6.

The camera doesn’t have WiFi built in but in Europe and Asia the camera came with a WiFi SD card. According to B&H’s listing, that isn’t included in the box.

At the price point, it’s a great camera for someone looking to get into interchangeable lens cameras.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

For years, many of us photographers have asked for a Tough camera (or waterproof) that can shoot RAW. Today, Olympus is announcing the answer to that problem with the Olympus Tough TG-4–but there is quite the caveat.

With a super wide angle lens that starts at f2 and ends up at f4.9 at the most telephoto end, the Tough TG-4 also sports WiFi integration, Aperture Priority, Program Auto mode, can display lots of info about the environment around you, has an integrated compass, and of course it’s quite tough. This camera has withstand 220lbs of force, can go down to 50 feet, can fall 7 feet, and can function down to 14 degrees Fahrenheit.

Yes, it still has a small sensor. But while that doesn’t bug us that much, we’re completely puzzled as to why Olympus didn’t give the camera a full manual control mode.

No, we’re not kidding.

STYLUS1s BLK

On the higher end of the Olympus Point and Shoot cameras, Olympus is announcing today its new Stylus 1S–which is supposed to be a slightly upgraded version of the Stylus 1. Like its predecessor, this camera is a superzoom with a constant f2.8 aperture throughout the zoom range.

So what’s new with this camera? For starters, there is a small target AF mode, step zoom which allows the lens to go immediately to 9 different preset areas, and a 1.44 million dot LCD screen. But otherwise, the camera also has a super macro mode, anti-reflective coatings on the lens elements, adaptive brightness technology, a hybrid control ring, time lapse movie mode, interval shooting mode, WiFi integration and focus peaking.

When the Olympus Stylus 1s hits the stores, you can pick one up for $699.99. More photos are after the jump.
