Olympus were showcasing several new models on their stand at Photokina including the PEN E-PL5, E-PM2 and XZ-2. Meeting up with Mark Thackara from Olympus gave us an opportunity to talk through the latest PEN models.
Photokina 2012 was an excellent opportunity to lay hands on Panasonic's latest Compact System Camera release, the GH3. Daneil Berehulak, a professional photographer from Getty Images, had been given a sample of the GH3 to test in India and we interviewed him on Panasonic's stand to find out how he found it in use.
Pentax were another manufacturer showcasing a new DSLR. The Pentax K-5 II is the successor to the Pentax K-5 and we managed to lay hands on a sample to present this first-look video. Featuring a newly developed 16.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor, the K-5 II also uses a new, highly sensitive SAFOX AF module that's designed to offer an enhanced AF performance in low-light situations and is sensitive down to -3EV.
