|A DSLR that fits in the palm of your hand ($499)|
Olympus PM-1 ($499)— Those looking to upgrade their point and shoot but don’t want the bulk of traditional DSLRs will appreciate Olympus’ line that features compact bodies that don’t compromise on picture quality.

If you’ve ever wanted to capture a still while shooting video, the Olympus PM-1 allows you to do so and also features a wide variety of cool effects. Shoot right in sepia and brighten colors as you shoot with Pop Art!
