Canon EOS 1100D (Rebel T3) coming in 4 assorted colors

It started with the traditional "professionally" black and the "striking" red, and now 2 more new colors are joining the happy-go-lucky bandwagon of the 1100D newbie DSLR. The company was clearly in an experimental mood, and got the harebrained idea that consumers just might snap up red and brown DSLRs the way they do its candy-colored point-and-shoots. The outfit is now selling its beginner-friendly EOS Rebel T3 in red, brown, and metallic gray — all in addition to your garden-variety black, of course.

Sure, that's tame by Pentax's wacky standards, but for Canon it's pretty… outlandish. Since the camera went on sale this spring, its price has dropped from $599 to a promotional $549 for the kit, which includes an EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom II lens. As for the body, if you'll recall, it has a 12.2 megapixel sensor that records 720p video (a rarity for an entry-level model), a nine-point autofocus system, ISO 100 to 6,400, and a 63-zone dual-metering system.

Leica Super-Elmar M 21mm f/3.4 ASPH Lens

The Leica Super-Elmar M 21mm f/3.4 ASPH is a compact ultra-wide angle lens for the M system. As a successor to the legendary Leica Super-Angulon-M 21 mm f/3.4, the new lens delivers outstanding rendition of details and optimum contrast up to its closest focusing distance. The lens is supplied with a metal, screw-mounted lens hood to prevent flare effects and ensure perfect image sharpness. The suggested retail price of the lens is £2,025 or around $3,289. [Leica]

Aluminum Alpininst Camera Case Is as Tough as it Is Ugly

This hideous looks like a stoned hippy took to carving his airline seatbelt buckle with a Dremel, but if you're a climber, you're probably going to love it anyway. It's called the Alpinist Case, and it protects your camera from mountains.

The case is machined from aluminum held together with stainless steel screws and filled with low-density foam. Should your camera fall, or get whacked by a passing cliff, then there's a good chance it will survive.

But protection is pointless if you can't get the camera out to take photos. To this end, the flip-up, clamp-shut lid can be locked down, but popped open easily. And you hang the case from your belt by a carabiner, so access is easy and fast. You can also leave the lid un-clamped and it will be held closed by magnets.

There are three sizes, from a tiny case for slim point-and-shoots up to a larger one for bigger compacts like the Leica D-Lux. You won't be carrying an SLR in there, but then you probably don't want to schlep a big heavy camera up a mountain anyway.

Available now (but on back order until late July), from $60 to $120.

Leica M9-P announced

The Leica brand name is said to carry plenty of weight when it comes to the world of digital cameras, and we are greeted yet again with a new model – the Leica M9-P, touted to be the smallest, full-frame digital system camera in the world. What's so special about the Leica M9-P? This will keep the current Leica M9 company as part of the company's rangefinder portfolio. Boasting an alternative, even more discreet and resilient design which will definitely make it a classic in the long run, the M9-P is no stranger when it comes to performance, being confident of meeting the needs of professional photographers without batting an eyelid.

You will be able to choose from a classic silver chrome or subtle black paint finish, where this compact size, full-frame, 18-megapixel shooter will boast a scratch-resistant, sapphire crystal cover on the LCD display, making sure it is extremely resistant to wear and nigh unbreakable. That doesn't mean you can have a truck run over it multiple times just to check it out, no? Anti-reflective coating is also included on both sides of the cover, helping you improve the review of images on the display right after capture, even in unfavorable lighting conditions.

Expect to pick up the Leica M9-P from the beginning of next month onwards.

Tiny Olympus Micro Four Thirds Camera Body Leaked

This looks like a pretty solid leak from Olympus, showing a new slimline Micro Four Thirds camera to be launched on June 30th. The camera is called the EPM1, and it looks to be an answer to Panasonic shrinking GF series of Micro Four Thirds cameras.

Like the GF3, the EPM1 is tiny, more in line with compacts like the XZ1 (also pictured above) than Olympus' previous PEN cameras. It has a touch screen for control (losing some mechanical buttons in the process), stero mics for video recording and apparently has super-fast AF.

According to 43 Rumors' source, there will be two more PEN cameras launched along with the EPM1, as well as some new lenses: a 12mm ƒ2.0 and a 45mm ƒ1.8. I can't wait.

Our Photo and Video compare tools now feature real digicams

Ever wondered how the Nokia N8 compares to a Canon 5D MkII? Well, we just finished adding this and other juicy reference digicams to our photo and video compare tools so you can get a better idea how a certain phone or tablet pits against a real, full-time camera in terms of image quality.

As you guys know, here at GSMArena we're very fond of comparative testing. We like to pit one device against another (be it a phone, a camera, a tablet or else). We test performance, audio quality, camera quality, video quality and just about everything you can think of. It's a professional thing, we like to keep it informative, up-to-date and unbiased (within reason).

Mobile phones are really taking some of the digicam's bread and butter. The only ones that still stand their grounds are the professional DSLRs, or are they? Now you can verify that for yourselves. And yes, you will be surprised. Knock yourselves out!

Here's a direct link that compares the Nokia N8 to the Canon 5D MkII DSLR in our Photo Compare Tool.

And here's another comparison between a still from the Canon 5D MkII 1080p footage pitted against the HTC Sensation and Samsung Galaxy SII.

HTC Sensation, Canon 5D MkII and Samsung Galaxy S II in our Video Compare Tool

Another small change is that we have added the megapixels for each device right next to its name in the list, so it's now easier to pick the right devices to compare.

Hope you like the changes. You can bet we'll continue to improve our website and the roller coaster ride is just getting fired up. Stay tuned.

Leaked Photos Of The New Olympus PEN Mini

Camera and photography enthusiasts should be familiar with Olympus's PEN series which is part of their micro-four-thirds line up and was supposed to bridge the gap between compact point and shoot styled cameras and the bigger and sometimes heavier DSLR cameras.The new model, the Olympus PEN Mini or better known as the E-PM1 is supposed to be comparable in size with the Olympus XZ-1 although being slightly larger in width, and it's supposed to bring about new features such as a touchscreen display, a brand new imaging engine and sensor and improved circuitry that should deliver reduced power consumption and increased battery life.

It is also said to bring about ultrafast autofocus that the company claims beats out the Panasonic GH2 AF and many DSLR cameras out in the market today which is a rather bold and impressive statement, although it would be a welcome feature and upgrade as the older Olympus PEN E-P1 which while producing great looking images, was also criticized for having a slow autofocus system which meant that the photos you could take with it was pretty much limited to landscapes and scenery, with action shots and wedding shots (which requires quick shooting to capture those moments) being out of the question (although not entirely impossible, just perhaps not so ideal).

Word has it that come June 30th all will be revealed, but until then we'll have to contend with that particular leaked photo.
