It's almost as if Nikon and Canon are working together in order to compete. Just days after Nikon's small, full-frame D600 DSLR was unveiling, Canon has pushed out a rival: the EOS 6D. Introduced today, it's the company's smallest and lightest full-frame DSLR, with 20.2 megapixel CMOS sensor, a DIGIC 5+ image processor and support for built-in wireless transmission and GPS. There's also an 11-point AF array as well as a 63-zone dual-layer iFCL metering sensor, combined with 1080p HD movie capture capabilities. As you'd expect, there's a wide ISO range from 100 to 25,600, 4.5fps continuous shooting,... Read more...
While much of the camera world gunning for mirrorless expansion, Nikon's staying focused on the high-end. But, in an effort to battle recent efforts from Olympus and Canon, it's making access to full-frame DSLRs a bit easier. The company's newest camera is the D600, a full-frame (FX) camera that's much smaller than the D4, D3 and D800, delivering a 24.3MP FX-format CMOS sensor, an EXPEED 3 image processor and support for 1080p HD movie recording. Also, like the D3200, this one will support wireless share and capturing through an iOS and / or Android app. The optional WU-1b Wireless Adapter is necessary... Read more...
Sony announced the new NEX-6 camera which features similar power and shooting capabilities as a DSLR in a compact, mirrorless camera. As the latest addition to Sony's E-mount camera line-up, the new NEX-6 features Fast Hybrid AF, Wi-Fi capabilities, and the Play Memories Camera Apps platform. The camera also features Sony's high-resolution XGA OLED Tru-Finder viewfinder with 2.36 million dots. The NEX-6 features a 16.1 megapixel Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor that is capable of capturing full HD video. The camera also features a BIONZ image processor. Sony is using the Fast Hybrid AF system in this camera... Read more...
Half retro, half modern tech. It's the new Pentax X-5, a superzoom prosumer camera that attempts to bridge the gap between conventional point-and-shoot and full-blown DSLR. Digging into the specifications, there's a 16MP BSI CMOS sensor, a tiltable LCD monitor, a 26x optical telephoto zoom lens (that'll get you out to 580mm or so), and a Macro mode that'll handle subjects as close as 0.4". There's also a 3" screen on the rear, a native ISO range that tops out at 6400 and triple shake-reduction. You'll get a 1080p movie mode that can handle up to 30 frames per second, as well as electronic viewfinder.... Read more...
Canon announced the latest addition to its popular EOS Rebel line of DSLRs. The new Canon EOS Rebel T4i Digital SLR features an 18-megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor, DIGIC 5 Image Processor with high-speed continuous shooting of up to five frames per second, and an extended ISO range of 100–12800 (expandable to 25600 in H mode). This camera also has a new autofocus (AF) system with a nine-point all cross-type sensor array, and new Hybrid CMOS AF. Other key new features include Canon’s new Movie Servo AF, a built-in stereo microphone, and a Vari-angle Touchscreen 3-inch Clear View LCD monitor... Read more...
Sometimes, weather just doesn't cooperate. For times when rain and mist quite literally moisten your parade, most folks would be content with simply not taking photographs. But if you're armed with Pentax's new 16MP K-30 DSLR, you can shoot away without too much worry. The company's latest shooter is weather and dust resistant, aimed at those who spend loads of time outdoors. It offers up a glass prism optical finder with 100% field of view, a new autofocus system and Full HD video recording. There's also a high-burst shooting mode, a high-speed shutter unit with a top speed of 1/6000 second, and... Read more...
It was only a few years ago when 720p video capabilities came to Nikon's D90. Now, 1080p is all the rage, and DSLRs are taking the place of actual camcorders when it comes to shooting music videos, television shows and even movies. Canon has benefited greatly from this shift, but Nikon's hoping to generate some interest of its own. This week, the D3200 "HD-SLR" launched, offering a 24.2MP DX-crop sensor, 1080p movie mode (with "full time autofocus"), native ISO range up to 6400 and one other, special bit. That would be the new WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter. When connected to the camera, this optional... Read more...
DSLRs aren't just for taking photos any longer. The past few years, more and more movie makers have been switching to DSLRs to shoot video, and Canon has gained tons of business because of this shift. But instead of letting folks repurpose their existing shooters, the company is catering specifically to the needs of filmmakers. Hence, the introduction of the newest addition in the Cinema EOS product line. The EOS-1D C DSLR provides video recording at 4K (4096 x 2160-pixel) or Full HD (1920 x 1080-pixel) resolution to support high-end motion picture, television production and other advanced imaging...

It's not just Nikon, Canon, Pentax and Olympus fighting for your DSLR dollars, it's also Sony. The company's Alpha line has been coming on strong in recent years, and the new a57 is certainly no slouch. It's the newest in the company's line of A-mount cameras, using the Translucent Mirror Technology that this range has become somewhat famous for in photography circles. It directs incoming light to the CMOS image sensor and the AF sensor at the same time, allowing full-time continuous AF during both still and video shooting. Users can also frame, focus and preview shots in real-time on the high-resolution... Read more...
Last year, you may have thought that Micro Four Thirds and mirrorless mini-cams were bound to steal the thunder of major DSLRs. Not so. This year, the D800, D800E and D4 were unveiled by Nikon, and Canon has launched the 5D Mark III. In order to get in on the action, Pentax has just launched the K-5 Silver Special Edition. Available only as a limited edition of 1,500 sets worldwide, the package consists of the PENTAX K-5 digital SLR camera body matched with the new, ultra thin smc PENTAX-DA 40mm F2.8 XS lens. The exclusive package combines the PENTAX K-5 - the flagship model of the PENTAX K series... Read more...
Canon is marking the 25th anniversary of its EOS System with the introduction of the company's latest DSLR, the EOS 5D Mark III. Canon intends for this camera to sit between the EOS 5D Mark II and Canon’s top-of-the-line professional EOS-1D X in its lineup. The new EOS 5D Mark III features a new 22.3-megapixel full-frame Canon CMOS sensor, a high-performance DIGIC 5+ Imaging Processor, a 61-point High Density Reticular Autofocus (AF) System and six fps continuous shooting speed. The EOS 5D Mark III also features enhanced video features such as better noise reduction, longer recording times,... Read more...
There's been some criticism over a letter Nikon started sending out recently to independent repair shops in the U.S. in which the camera maker announced that "it will no longer maker repair parts available for purchase by repair facilities that have not been authorized by Nikon Inc. to perform camera repairs," a policy that goes into effect around the middle of July. Nikon says the policy is necessary due to the complexity of today's cameras, but some have questioned the rationale. iFixIt, a big proponent of Do-It-Yourself (DIY) repair, called the news "unnerving" and believes the policy change...

The D700 finally has a replacement. As one of the oldest, still-current full-frame cameras on the market, the D700 was an oldie-but-goodie. But there's nothing like a major replacement to make us move on to what's next. Nikon just introduced the D800 this evening, with an astounding 36.3MP FX-format CMOS sensor (7360 x 4912 resolution), a 91,000-pixel RGB Matrix Metering System, Advanced Scene Recognition System and a 1080p30 movie mode. There's also an improved 51-point AF system, uncompressed HDMI output, their latest EXPEED 3 image processing engine, and an ISO range of 100-6400, expandable... Read more...
If you've always wanted to spend a small fortune on a professional camera designed specifically for digital cinematography, today just happens to be your lucky day. Canon's new EOS C300 Cinema is available for pre-order for a cool $15,999 with free shipping, so technically this is a sub-$16,000 camera, in case that helps you pitch it to your significant other. Since we're getting technical, we should start with the Super 35mm-equivalent 16:9 large CMOS sensor. Canon says it was modeled on the Super 35mm 3-per motion picture standard and boasts an active image size of 24.6mm x 13.8mm. The camera... Read more...
