Last Thursday saw the annual AP Awards where we gave recognition to the the photographic equipment that excited and impressed us in 2013. You can find out about the AP award winners here and view a gallery of the day here.

Elsewhere, in product news Olympus has added a ‘rifle'-style dot-sight to its new SP-100EE bridge camera and has launched a baby brother version of its OM-D compact system camera in the shape of the E-M10. Our First Look at the camera is online now, so why not take a look. You can also read our initial thoughts about the new Fujfilm X-E2.

Finally, the future of photojournalism has been in news recently for two reasons. First is the axing of photography departments by Johnston Press, a regional newspaper publisher of 154 paid-for weekly titles and 37 free weeklies. The second threat is the Deregulation Bill which will be receiving its second reading in the House of Commons today. There is widepsread concern among photographers that if enacted it will be easier for police to legally seize images and thereby make it harder for photojournalists to do their work. What do you think? Why not visit the AP forum and have your say?

Bye for now.
