This week we've seen two new compact cameras from Olympus. The Stylus SH-1 brings 5-axis optical image stabilisation to a compact body, while the Tough TG-3 is equipped with a range of macro modes to complement its outdoorsy build.

More D600 woes for Nikon - the firm is now pledging to replace users' D600 models if the now infamous 'black spot' problem persists even after the free servicing.

And in lighter news we've taken a look at seven of the strangest and most cringeworthy camera adverts that they definitely wouldn't make today.

That's all for this week.
