Have you been patiently waiting for Nikon to update its medium-format D800 DSLR? After roughly two years, your patience is being rewarded with Nikon's new D810 DSLR. If it's a high level of detail you're after, the D810's 36.3-megapixel, full-frame FX-format (7360x4912 resolution) CMOS sensor aided by Nikon's EXPEED 4 imaging processing engine should have no trouble delivering it. "Once a user experiences the intense level of fine detail they are able to render using the immersive resolution of the D810, it will be hard to imagine a project without it," said Masahiro Horie, Director of Marketing...

Lytro tried to flip photography on its head a few years ago with the introduction of its original light-field camera. Sporting a funky design reminiscent of a kaleidoscope, the rectangular-shaped tube-like camera excelled at capturing the entire light field around an image, thereby allowing photographers to refocus photos and change their orientation after they've already been taken. Fast forward to today, Lytro is back with a second model -- ILLUM -- that's more functional (and more expensive) than the original. Whereas the original Lytro debuted at $399, the Lytro ILLUM is a $1,599 camera, though... Read more...
It’s an old story in tech that one evolving area of a market cannibalizes another, and it’s possible that’s what’s happening with smartphones and high-end digital camera sales. Citing IDC’s research, the WSJ notes that shipments of DSLR cameras with interchangeable lenses will drop 9.1% to 17.4 million units, down from 19.1 million last year. One IDC analyst, Christopher Chute, told the WSJ that he’s found that some consumers are eschewing a high-quality camera such as a DSLR and instead spending their dollars on smartphones and tablets. Nikon Df DSLR There’s... Read more...
There's no need to squint, and there's no need to check your calendar: you're living in 2013, but this camera looks like it built in an era that many have forgotten about. Out of left field, the Nikon Df has arrived. The company has thrived on selling huge, high-end DSLRs to professionals, but it struck out with lackluster interchangeable lens options. Now, the Df aims to strike a balance between the two worlds: it's small in terms of being a full-format camera, but it's versatile enough to woo those are serious about imaging. The Df is a full-frame (FX) camera, and amazingly, it ships with the... Read more...
Canon Announced the Canon EOS 70D, promising that the DSLR will offer “instant and precise” focusing in both still images and video thanks to the Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus feature and phase-detection AF. Canon also says the camera can shoot video near the quality of a camcorder, in 1080p HD at 30 FPS. The EOS 70D features a 20.2 megapixel APS-C Canon CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 5+ Image Processor and an ISO range of 100-12800, with the ability to snap sharp images even in low light. It can handle SD/SDHC/SDXC and Ultra High Speed cards. There’s also a stereo microphone with manual... Read more...
If you often find yourself shooting video in the dark, you'll be happy to know that Canon has developed a high-sensitivity 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor designed exclusively for video recording. According to Canon, the new sensor is able to capture Full HD video in exceptionally low-light environments. That's especially great news for budding astronomers, as Canon says the sensor can capture clear video of even faint stars. The CMOS sensor features pixels measuring 19 microns square in size. To put that into perspective, it's more than 7.5-times the surface area of the pixels on the CMOS sensor inside... Read more...
These days, camera makers are trying all sorts of new tricks in order to make up for lost sales in the point-and-shoot department. Ever since cameraphones became acceptable enough for the masses, there have been a lot fewer reasons to splurge on a compact. And with technology constantly shrinking, we've seen a number of companies attempt to shove high-spec product into small containers. Take a look at Nikon's new Coolpix A -- it's the company's first DX-format Coolpix. In other words, the sensor is the same as was in the heralded D90 a few years ago, but its size is far more mobile. The all-glass... Read more...
Need a new shooter? If you're looking for a mid-range DSLR, Nikon's got a new one to consider. The company just launched the D5200, a cropped-frame DSLR that boasts a DX-format 24.1MP CMOS sensor, a 39-point AF system, and an image-processing engine equivalent to EXPEED 3 built into the D4 flagship camera. The D5200 offers the same side-hinged vari-angle monitor as the D5100 that enables flexible shooting from any angle, and it covers an ISO range from ISO 100 to 6400. The D-Movie function supports recording of full-HD 1920 x 1080 60i/50i movies, and it also supports the the Wireless Mobile Adapter... Read more...
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).
