Olympus, $1199 (body) olympus.com.au ★★★★★ This top-of-the-range com­pact sys­tem cam­era only looks retro. Inside, the first model in the Olympus OM-D range fea­tures thor­oughly mod­ern tech­nol­ogy. This 16-megapixel cam­era can cap­ture pho­tos in very low light thanks to a 25,600 ISO rat­ing, will snap up to nine pho­tos a sec­ond, or 4.2 with aut­o­fo­cus en­gaged, and uses ad­vanced im­age sta­bil­i­sa­tion that cor­rects move­ment on five axes, rather than just side to side, de­liv­er­ing im­pres­sively crisp re­sults with­out a tri­pod as a re­sult. It re­sists rain, its 3-inch OLED touch­screen is mounted on a hinge for an­gled pho­tos, and that retro pro­tru­sion above its lens hides a 1.4 mil­lion-dot elec­tronic viewfinder.
