Mike and Nick from Unique Photo do some night shooting to measure the Canon G1X, Panasonic GX1 and the Olympus OMD EM5 in a head to head to head match up. From Mirrorless Central: Bottom Line – The OMD EM5 and the Panasonic GX1 are both great cameras, they’re two of our favorites from the last year or so and you can’t go wrong with either. We haven’t personally tested the Canon, but it looks like a decent offering for those who aren’t in to interchangeable lenses. Our conclusion: The OMD is clearly the “Mercedes” of the bunch, and it [More]
Another review of the Olympus OM-D EM-5, hands down one of the best mirrorless cameras – check that – one of the best cameras PERIOD, to come out in the last several years. Pros and enthusiasts alike love this camera for it’s stunning Image Quality, 5 point image stabilization, lightining fast autofocus and retro form factor.

On a frigid Calgary day, Panasonic let us try out a pre-release GX1. The Camera Store’s Chris Niccolls walks you through the features of the GX1, while attempting to stay warm and not get kicked out of the mall. Shot and Edited by Jordan Drake Shot on the Panasonic AF100 The GX1 is a great camera, period… but it’s especially great for someone who’s looking to capture high quality photos and video, but pack that ability into a body that’s easy to carry around – and the GX1 delivers on all counts.

The Panasonic GF series has taken an interesting change of direction ever since the brilliant GF1 was first announced. With the GF2 and GF3 losing admirers of the range thanks to them losing key features. But now the GX1 is here and it’s promising to be the successor to the GF1. Is it any good though? The GX1 is a great camera, period… but it’s especially great for someone who’s looking to capture high quality photos and video, but pack that ability into a body that’s easy to carry around – and the GX1 delivers on all counts.

The Fujifilm X Pro 1 offers a unique set of features, some ground-breaking technology you have to see to believe, world class low light and high ISO image quality, and a bold price tag that makes you think it’s got to be one of the best cameras you can buy. But is it? Behind it’s cool or not cool neo-retro styling, there’s a real (and real different) mirrorless camera and new series of legendary Fujifilm lenses that want to be the centerpiece of your photo and video image making process. No matter if you’re a photo enthusiast or a working [More]
Hear any mention of retro-styled cameras with exorbitant price tags and it’s hard not to get suspicious. That kind of talk brings to mind Leica’s incessant re-branding of Panasonic Lumix models, or those unicorn limited editions out of Japan that just leave us baffled. But it’s okay, you can relax with the Fujifilm X-Pro1. At $1700 for the body only it’s crazily expensive, sure, but not when you compare to an $8000 Leica M9-P. Besides, it’s a legitimate heir to a strong line of Fuji shooters that includes the much-loved X100 and the more accessible X10. That’s a strong pedigree, [More]

This 2011 holiday roundup video covers advanced mirrorless cameras.
TODAY checks out the new Canon M mirrorless camera – the smallest camera in the Canon EOS system. This new APS-C CMOS sensor camera will be available with two new EF-M lenses, a 22mm ‘pancake’ lens and a 18-55mm zoom lens. The Canon M also has an optional adaptor that enables Canon photographers to use their existing EF/EF-S lenses. The Canon M comes in four colours, and will hit the stores in early October.
In the kickoff of season 3, Kai and Lok from DigitalRevTV compare an entry level DSLR – the Nikon D3100 – with a mirrorless camera – the E-P3 to see if there is still a point of having a DSLR. It looks like the small Olympus PEN E-P3 holds up pretty well against the Nikon, even surpassing it in some categories, and with recent advances in sensor technology, we’d bet that new Olympus cameras, like the new PEN Lite (E-PL5) and PEN Mini (E-PM2), that are equipped with the same sensor as the flagship OM-D E-M5 would do even better.

Canon EOS M Mirrorless Camera Hands on First Look. The Canon EOS M is Canon’s first mirrorless camera but inside it has much the same technology as the Canon 650D. The 18-million-pixel sensor, is the same CMOS device that supports the hybrid AF system for continuous focusing during Live View and video recording. Although the 3-inch 1040000-dot screen is fixed it is the same as the one in the 650D and is touch sensitive. In this video Angela Nicholson takes a look at some pre-production samples. This is the new Canon mirrorless camera and EF-M 22mm f/2 Lens.
How does the image quality of a DSLR compare to the new mirrorless cameras like the Sony NEX-7 or micro 4/3? The flange-to-focal distance is one important difference – but what does this mean in terms of camera design and image quality? Derp.
