Sigma is a well-known name in the camera industry, particularly the high-end camera industry. And nothing says high-end quite like 46 megapixels. Though, the effective output of the SD1's 46 megapixels is really just 15.3MP (the math goes something like this: 4800 x 3200 x 3), due to a rare 24x16mm APS-C X3 direct image sensor. Sigma claims that this offers more megapixels than any other camera in the market, and while true, you won't get an image with a pixel size any larger than you would from any other 15.3MP camera. Still, the hardware is impressive. There's a TRUE (Three-layer Responsive Ultimate... Read more...
The "mirrorless" camera war seems to be the most heated right now, but the DSLR war is the one that will never stop in all likelihood. Pentax has arrived to the party swinging with their new K-5 Digital SLR, aimed at advanced amateur photographers. The prosumer DSLR has a 16.3MP CMOS sensor, up to 7FPS fast shooting, an ISO range of 80 to 12800 (expandable to 51200) and widescreen 1080p video capture abilities. There's also a rare 3.5mm microphone jack, an 11 point SAFOX IX+ autofocus system with dedicated AF assist lamp and light wavelength sensor, native support for both PENTAX PEF and Adobe...

Mirrorless cameras are all the rage these days. Olympus and Panasonic have their Micro Four Thirds technology, Sony has their interchangeable lens family, and now Fujifilm has the FinePix X100. Now, we're just waiting for Canon and Nikon to join the fun, and full-fledged DSLRs will finally have their work cut out for them. These compact APS-C cameras offer many of the luxuries on a DSLR (full manual mode, fast shooting, great low-light performance, etc.), but at a fraction of the size and cost. They're more limited when it comes to lenses and accessories, but for many, they offer plenty of performance.... Read more...
The rumor sites were all over this one, and usually when you see smoke, there's fire. That's certainly the case here, as Nikon has gone and officially outed its sizzling new D7000 DSLR with a 16.2 megapixel CMOS sensor, 39-point AF system, and 1080p HD movie recording with full time autofocus. "The D7000 DSLR creates a new class of Nikon camera by delivering exceptional quality, control, and an innovative feature set; this is a camera that enables DSLR users to achieve a true expression of their creative vision, while concentrating primarily on image quality above all else," said Lisa Osorio, general...

Olympus has just introduced a new mid-level DSLR, and while the feature set is pretty impressive, we aren't too sure the price aligns with the competition. The new E-5 is a bold, big body that is splashproof and dustproof, with a magnesium alloy casing ensuring that professionals won't have to be extra careful when slinging this around. As for specifications, it has a 12.3MP Live MOS sensor, a TruePic V+ image processing engine, Supersonic Wave Filter Dust Reduction System, the first Full -Time Live View system and ten in-camera Art Filters that should help the creative types who would rather avoid...

The point-n-shoot category is filled with colorful cameras of all shapes and sizes, and some even sport cartoon characters on and around the body. Is this where the DSLR market is headed, too? We don't know, but one thing's for sure -- the era of black and silver only DSLR cameras has come to a close. That's because Pentax has decided to shake things up with a colorful new line of digital SLR bodies so that potential owners can "choose on that matches their personal style." The K-r, as Pentax is calling its newest DSLR, comes in red (as shown) or classic white, and who knows, maybe more colors... Read more...
The prosumer camera sector just got a lot more interesting. Canon's G11 and G12 have largely stood alone in recent years; those prosumer point and shoot cameras didn't have too many rivals, but now Nikon's knocking on their door with the new Coolpix P7000. This is one of Nikon's most advanced, yet compact cameras to date, offering a slew of manual controls that you'd expect on a DSLR but within the shell of a camera that can easily slip into your rear pocket. The new camera has a 1/1.7” CCD sensor coupled with a 7.1x Wide Angle Optical Zoom-NIKKOR ED Glass Lens, not to mention an EXPEED C2... Read more...
Watch out, Nikon! Canon has a new mid-range DSLR out today, and the specifications look super impressive. The 50D is being replaced today by the EOS 60D, which is a new prosumer DSLR camera that features an 18MP sensor, a flexible rear LCD, in-camera RAW processing and plenty of other specs to make the budding photographer think twice about replacing their current body. The new 60D is full of firsts; there's a 3" Vari-Angle LCD on the rear, which is a rarity on DSLR cameras these days. There's also the all-new Multi-Control Dial, which places a Multi-Controller and Set button inside the Quick Control... Read more...
One could say that the megapixel race as we know it is over, or it's at least less of an ordeal now than it used to be. Camera makers cranked up the megapixels as fast as they could for years, but now we've reached somewhat of a peak, or a plateau, maybe. But there's no question that camera makers will continue to push the megapixel envelope, and there are obvious advantages to doing so. Some medium format cameras today have sensors with over 40 megapixels, but that's beginning to sound a little small. Canon has just successfully developed the world's first APS-H sized CMOS image sensor with 120... Read more...
Ready for a new "world's first" in the DSLR space? Sony has one for you, actually...two! Sony is this week introducing new DSLR cameras powered by the world's first translucent mirror technology, which enables simultaneous auto focus and capture in an interchangeable lens camera. That's a mouthful to digest, but it's a huge leap forward for DSLR technology. The new Alpha models (SLT-A55V and SLT-A33) both use the new tech, which reportedly achieves the highest-level of auto focus speed for both still image and movie shooting. Using the new technology, the a55 and a33 models can continuously and... Read more...
Sony expanded its α (alpha) line of DSLR cameras with the introduction of the new SLR-a560. This DSLR uses Sony's Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor and is one of the few models in Sony's line to offer Multi-frame Noise Reduction, Sweep Panorama mode, 3D Sweep Panorama, and Full HD 1920x1080 60i video capture. This 14.2 megapixel camera also features Quick AF Live View, 7fps continuous shooting capabilities, and Auto HDR. In addition to the new α560, Sony is also adding three new lenses including a Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 24mm F2 ZA SSM (model SAL24F20Z), a DT 35mm F1.8 SAM (model SAL35F18),... Read more...
Nikon is targeting a wide range of photographers with its new D3100 DSLR. This 14.2-megapixel camera is the successor to Nikon's D3000. It offers a number of features for the more advanced photographer but also has some of the technologies you'd find in a compact, point and shoot model from Nikon's COOLPIX line. What's really cool about the new D3000 is that it's the first DSLR to have full-time AF for D-Movie video shooting and while in Live View mode. The camera can record 1080p resolution (1920x1080) movies in the H.264 AVCHD codec. The D3100 uses contrast based AF to focus on subjects while... Read more...
Not long ago, we learned about Walmart's plan to expand its consumer electronics offerings. The big-box retailer is not alone. Target also has a system-wide plan to upgrade its TV, gaming, and digital imaging sections and product offerings.  The rollout began last month and should be completed by June. With the new CE department design, Target stores will get an updated TV wall that should make it easier for consumers to compare TVs across brands. Along with the display, Target plans to offer clear signs that highlight product features, making it even easier to compare models. The display... Read more...
