The Impact Powersync16s are a reliable, well built, and powerful wireless trigger set for those that want wireless flash control at a decent price. I’ve been testing them for a short period and though I do not feel like I’ve given them a full run-through yet, they are definitely something worth talking about again.
The Olympus XZ-1 has proven that the raw files have decent versatility already after some initial impressions, but how are the high ISOs on this powerful little point and shoot camera? I took the camera to a concert and this time I wasn’t right up against the stage. I was back behind a bunch of people the same way many people often are.
We raved about the Olympus XZ-1 and we were very impressed with its bigger brother the EPL-2. Indeed, this camera will be undergoing the same review process that big brother did: testing it out as a professional’s camera for leisure use. Additionally, it will be going head to head with the Canon S95 and Leica D-LUX 5. So let’s begin this review.
Admittedly, I haven’t touched either the Olympus EPL-2 or XZ-1 at the time of writing this posting. However, they are two very exciting cameras that are bound to be hot on everyone’s list. Those of you that have been reading the site for a while know that I hated the EPL-1 (more than once) to the point of even refusing to link to it through Amazon and B&H because I wouldn’t tell anyone to buy it. It seems like Olympus has listened to what I clamored for originally, and threw in some amazing accessories as well. If not, it at least will make the decision between the two top dogs in this category a bit more difficult.
