New Toys for Summer

Some interesting new toys have come out…

Apple has finally released their long-awaited G5 models (yay!, not that i’m buying one any time soon) and promised a new operating system version. They also added a neat gadget called the “iSight“, which is basically a really cool firewire webcam that integrates into their chat application for videoconferencing. I might have to stop at an Apple store to check it out.

Olympus just released their cool looking and overpriced E-1 digital SLR system. As the former owner of an E10, I have to say the E1 addresses a lot of its problems. The unfortunate point, though, is that their competing nowadays against the likes of the Canon 10D, which is an awfully tough opponent. I hope Olympus succeeds if only to bring some innovation to the arena and make a push towards smaller, lighter non-35mm based digital SLRs. Time will tell.
