I have personally been in the hunt for a DSLR camera for quite a while, but while I was reading various sites, I stumbled upon the Olympus Air, a shooter that attaches to your cellphone.
This little shooter previously appeared as a Japan-only product, but Olympus America announced earlier today that the product will be making its way to the United States in July, for $300 for the body, and $500 with the addition of a 14-42mm EZ lens.
The Olympus Air features a Micro Four Thirds, 16-megapixel camera, a TruePic VII image-processing chip, RAW capture, up to 1080p video-recording and 10 fps continuous shooting, with Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity. There is also a deidcated app, OA.Central, that comes along with it, wherein you can control the camera and transfer images with it. The camera also has on-board microSD storage capabilities.
The beautiful thing about the Olympus Air is that it can also be detached from your phone, allowing for selfies and taking otherwise difficult shots that a conventional camera could not achieve.
It’s also open source, so developers can easily create their own apps for the camera with the included SDK.
I can’t wait for the release of this camera.
