Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1

Somewhere between dSLR and pocket cam lies the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 ($TBA; November 2008). As the world's first camera to use the Micro Four Thirds standard, the G1 offers the interchangeable lenses and power of a dSLR, but in a more compact body. Features include a 3-inch flip-out LCD, contrast Autofocus, a 12-megapixel Live MOS sensor, and a full complement of manual, semimanual, automatic, and semiautomatic shooting capabilities. Just give us a Leica Micro Four Thirds lens, and we'll be all set. [via]

  • Canon EOS 50D

    Canon takes another leap forward in the dSLR arms race with the Canon EOS 50D ($1,400; October 2008). The 15-megapixel prosumer model is the company's first to sport the new DIGIC 4 processor, promising features like peripheral illumination correction, ISO sensitivity of up to 12,800, a 3-inch, 920,000 dot LCD, Live View, a self-cleaning system, and more. Pair it with Canon's new 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens ($700) and get shooting. [via]

  • Olympus Stylus 1050 SW

    Like its predecessor, the Olympus Stylus 1050 SW ($300; Oct.) is one of the toughest compact digital cameras you can buy. But there's more brains to go with the ruggedness this time around. This shockproof (5ft.), waterproof (10ft.) and freezeproof (14°F) camera has new Tap Control functionality that lets you activate settings just by tapping the top, back or sides of the motion-sensitive camera body. Buttons? We don't need no stinking buttons. The 10.1-megapixel shooter — available in blue, champagne, silver and black — also features Face Detection, Smile Shot, and an in-camera panorama mode.
