The Samsung NX-M 17mm f/1.8 OIS Lens is a standard-length prime lens for the Samsung NX Mini Mirrorless Digital Camera and its NX-M lens mount. It provides a 45.9mm focal length equivalence in the 35mm format. With a maximum aperture of f/1.8, the lens is very effective in low light situations and able to create a shallow depth of field for images with a sharp subject and pleasing out-of-focus background. A circular aperture lends to pleasing bokeh. The minimum focus distance for the lens is 7.1″.

A lens-shift optical image stabilization system reduces the blur caused by camera shake further enhancing the camera’s ability to create sharp images in low light. The lens’ construction consists of 8 optical elements in 5 groups including one Xtreme High Refractive lens and two aspherical elements to minimize aberrations and contribute to color accuracy, contrast and clarity.

Like the cameras it was designed for. the NX-M 17mm distinguishes itself with its compact size, measuring just 1.1″ long. It provides a 39mm diameter filter thread for attaching a wide range of filters.

This system can work while taking continuous shots up to a rate of 8 fps and the grid covers the entire frame. Full HD video recording is also possible. And, this camera comes with the FL-LM1 flash which offers wireless control over additional units.

Olympus E-PL7 Back ViewFourteen different Art Filters are available for achieving unique looks and effects in your imagery. This includes settings like Vintage and Partial Color. HDR, HDR bracketing, and focus peaking features are also included for assistance during shooting. Interval shooting also has a helpful tool which will convert individual images captured during interval shooting into timelapse.

Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity enables users to pick up their mobile devices and use them to accentuate usage of the E-PL7. By using the Olympus Image Share app you can move images from your camera directly to your device as well as control the camera itself.

16MP Live MOS Sensor & TruePic VII Image Processor
The 16MP Live MOS sensor is optimized to maximize the performance of all M.Zuiko digital lenses in any shooting condition. Improvements to the sensitivity and read-out speed thanks to the inclusion of the TruePic VII image processor enables shooting of clear, detailed low-light images at ISO speeds up to 25600, and also allows for Full HD movie recording. The processor also helps with the fast 8 fps continuous shooting speed and color reproduction.

FAST Autofocus System with Small Target AF
Benefitting the quick shooting performance of the E-PL7, a contrast-detection focusing method employs 81 AF areas across the entire sensor to quickly and accurately acquire focus. Aptly named, FAST (Frequency Acceleration Sensor Technology) is able to home in on subjects using single-shot or continuous focusing methods, as well as AF tracking to benefit working with moving subjects. In addition there is Small Target AF that can be used to acquire focus in a smaller area for increased accuracy.

When working with manual focus, focus peaking is available to simplify attaining precise sharpness, which is especially useful when using selective focus or shallow depth of field techniques.

3-Axis In-Body VCM Image Stabilization
In-body VCM (Voice Coil Motor) image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake with any lens in use and compensates for camera movements that become especially noticeable when working with telephoto shots, macro imagery, and long exposures. Furthermore, this unique image stabilization system works across three axes, versus the conventional two axes, and compensates for vertical and horizontal shifts (yaw and pitch) as well as camera shake along the optical axis (roll). This range of detected movements serves to benefit traditional still image shooting as well as movie recording and working with moving subjects more effectively.

3.0″ 1.04M-dot 180° Flip LCD Touchscreen
The E-PL7 is equipped with a bright 3.0″ 1.04M-dot LCD touchscreen that can flip downward 180° for a much simpler and easier method of taking self-portraits. The screen allows for touch focusing and shutter release, making it much more intuitive to take photos. Additionally, it can flip upwards for shooting at low angles.

The Fujifilm XF 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR Lens is a wide-angle to telephoto zoom lens designed for Fujifilm X-mount mirrorless cameras, where it provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 27-206mm. Its optical system comprises 16 elements in 12 groups and includes four aspherical elements and two extra-low dispersion glass elements to maintain an overall compact form factor as well as reduce chromatic aberrations and distortions throughout the zoom range. An HT-EBC multi-layer coating has also been applied to lens elements to suppress lens flare and ghosting to realize contrast-rich, color-neutral imagery.

Benefitting this lens’ use in difficult lighting conditions, an enhanced optical image stabilization system compensates for up to five effective stops of camera shake to produce sharper imagery with slower shutter speeds. For working in fast-paced situations, an inner focusing system, coupled with a linear AF motor, produces smooth and quiet focusing with a max AF speed of just 0.1 seconds.

Protecting the lens in inclement weather, the barrel features 20 distinct seals and an internal ventilator offers smooth zoom adjustment while preventing dust and moisture from entering the lens.

  • 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 27-206mm, covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives to suit working in a wide variety of shooting situations.
  • The optical design incorporates four aspherical elements and two extra-low dispersion elements to minimize chromatic aberrations and distortions throughout the zoom range while also lessening the overall size and weight of the lens.
  • An HT-EBC multi-layer coating has been applied to lens elements to reduce lens flare and ghosting for greater image clarity and color fidelity.
  • The lens barrel features 20 distinct seals across its design to resist dust and moisture from entering the lens. Additionally, further contributing to effective weather resistance, an internal ventilator ensures smooth zoom adjustment and prevents dust particles and moisture from reaching the interior of the lens.
  • An enhanced optical image stabilization system, which includes dedicated OIS Unit Lenses with a wide range of corrective movements, compensates for the appearance of camera shake by an effective five stops to benefit working in low-light conditions and with slower shutter speeds. This enhanced OIS system employs a redeveloped algorithm, which checks for camera shake 8000 times per second and controls the optical system at a rate of 16,000 times per second, to correct for the slightest amount of camera shake. Two high-precision gyro sensors with quartz oscillators also work to detect both high and low frequency shakes in order to compensate for a wide range of camera movement types.
  • An inner focusing design maintains the overall lens length during use and helps to achieve quick focusing speeds as short as 0.1 seconds. Additionally, a linear AF motor contributes to smooth and near-silent focusing performance to suit video recording.
