Olympus Micro 4/3 ( a very small camera )

Well, it has finally happened.

Olympus announced a new standard for interchangeable lens camera that is really small and compact.

This is the camera that is the digital equivalent to the Rangefinder camera Leica that is so famous.

All along the technology is available , just that manufacturers are stuck in the mind set that consumers would only want simple Point and shoot cameras.

This is the camera that a lot of photographers would LOVE to have with them on casual shoots or on their vacation. We don't want to be ALWAYS carrying big and bulky gear with us. Regardless how much we love photography.

Olympus and Panasonic are the first 2 companies that have now announced this new standard. I should think there are more to come. But I am just delighted with this model from Olympus.

This is just a Mock up of what is to come. There is no functional camera as yet.
