Hello again, in the news this week Nikon is reportedly changing tack slightly and will place more focus on producing DSLRs rather than CSCs as the market for the latter is slowing. One consequence of the slowdown in growth for CSCs is that the company is to review its 1 system planning system.

Meanwhile, electronics company LG has unveiled a smartphone carrying a 13MP camera and optical image stabilisation (OIS).

Elsewhere, there's quirky project from Olympus and Italian scooter manufacturer Vespa in the form of a ‘paparazzo' EP-5 camera kit. It costs a cool (pardon the pun) £16,000, so that's one for the 'Modfather' Paul Weller, then.

Here's something sharp-eyed readers may be able to help with – a photographer in distress. Alex Nail, who runs workshops in Dartmoor, has had over £4,000 worth of photo gear stolen. He's listed the equipment taken on his website and is offering a reward. You can read more about his predicament on the AP website where there is also a link to his site.

That's all for now. Enjoy another week of image making.
