"Cheap," "EVIL" Cameras: Olympus Pen, Lumix GF1 and Samsung NX10

The latest challengers to the DSLR market are the so-called EVIL cameras, EVIL stands for Electronic Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens and unlike bulky DSLR cameras, don't have mirrors in them.

Popular EVIL cameras, with the size or small point-and-shoot cameras but the resolution of DSLR cameras, are the Olympus Pen, Lumix GF1 and the Samsung NX10. The usual feature of DSLR is also there with the interchangeable lenses. There's no EVIL camera product from either Nikon and Canon yet but expect the price of EVIL cameras to fall when the two camera giants enter the market.

For now, those EVIL cameras are priced at about PhP40k, approximately the price for a mid-range DSLR body.

I think I'm going to forgo upgrading my Nikon D80 for now to wait and see how this EVIL camera will come to play next year.
