Olympus UK extends XZ-1 cashback offer


Press Release:

Olympus XZ-1 £40 cashback offer extended!

Olympus have extended the £40 cashback on the flagship XZ-1 until the end of February 2012.

If one of your new year’s resolutions for 2012 is to take up a new hobby or learn something new then why not make it photography? With Olympus extending the cashback offer until the end of February there really is no excuse not to, and with £40 off the price you won’t be breaking your resolution to save money either.

The multi-award-winning XZ-1 camera combines the image quality and adjustability of system cameras and the portability of digital compact cameras. For ambitious amateurs and discriminating professionals alike, the XZ-1 offers superior, best-in-class image quality. With the light-grabbing, digital iZUIKO lens, shooting in low-light situations is a breeze. The manual lens ring allows for quick adjustment of key camera settings while you shoot, and a sliding depth-of-field adjuster makes it easy to create beautiful bokeh effects. All of this in a sleek and stylish package (now available in three colours, black, white & silver) that’s as rugged as it is mobile.

The cashback offer is running in the UK and until 29th February 2012 and is valid on purchases of the XZ-1 from authorised UK and Ireland stockists.

More information on the offer and how to claim are available at

Hasselblad H4D-60 review

UPDATE 18 May, 2012: Hasseblad is set to reduce the price on the H4D cameras by as much as $11,000 / 6,200 Euros on the H4D-60, bringing the price to 23,900 euros ($30,995 / £21,995). Please see here for more details.

The last couple of decades have been turbulent for medium format camera manufacturers, but now after several well-known names have withdrawn, the market looks healthy. Two new unexpected entrants, Leica and Pentax have added to the dynamic at opposing ends of the pricing scale, forcing the two established system players to compete fiercely in their traditional rarefied role as well as the entry-level.

Partnering with both Leaf and Mamiya, Phase One has developed a trio of entry-level Mamiya DM models starting at under $14k/ £9k while continuing to offer a wide range of Phase One and Leaf backs, up to 80-megapixels. Through various offers and incentives these backs, are most likely to be partnered with the 645DF body but they are in fact compatible with a wide range of …

Fujifilm IS Pro UV-IR DSLR review

Fuji’s IS Pro is the up-date to maker’s earlier S3 UV-IR camera, and like that particular camera, the IS Pro adopts a modified image sensor that’s not shielded from UV or IR light. Consequently, with various filtration methods, the IS Pro is designed for Ultraviolet (UVA), visible and near Infrared photography.

Although there is a healthy demand for DSLRs with IR capability especially, and there are number of independent vendors (mainly in the US, but the UK also) that offer IR dedicated and full-spectrum conversion of current Nikon and Canon bodies, it’s anticipated the IS Pro will appeal largely to the scientific and forensic communities. With the departure of the S3 UV-IR, Fuji’s IS Pro continues to be the only dedicated full-spectrum interchangeable lens based DSLR that has professional-level support from a camera maker. As well as official product support and 12-month warranty, for government agencies and the like, the OEM status of the IS Pro will be particularly reassuring an…

Unlike the process of dithering liquid ink in an inkjet, dye-sublimation printers produce authentic continuous tone images with an analogous look like that of a conventional lab-produced print. They achieve this using thin c…
