Sony has announced a new digital camera that it claims to be the world's smallest compact camera with a 24-720mm zoom lens: the Cyber-shot HX99 (DSC-HX99). The small size of the camera makes it well suited for travel, yet the high zoom rate allows you to get closer to far away subjects. The lens is a ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T 24-720mm High Magnification Zoom lens with Optical SteadyShot integrated. Image stabilization is important at high zoom levels, or you end up with close up, blurry images. Sony integrates a Zoom Assist function that makes it easier to zoom accurately and keep distant subjects in the frame by temporarily zooming-out to show the shooter a wider area. A BIONZ X processing engine... Read more...
Nikon has unveiled a pair of new mirrorless digital cameras that are both decidedly high-end: the Z7 and the Z6. The duo is nearly identical with the exception price, resolution, and autofocus (AF) system. The Z7 is a 45.7MP digital camera with ISO 64-25600 standard and ISO 32 and ISO 102400 expanded. Nikon's Z6 digital camera has a pixel count of 24.5MP and has sensitivity from 100-51200 standard and ISO 50 to ISO 204800 extended. Another major point of differentiation between the two cameras comes in the AF systems. The Z7 has 493 focus points while the Z6 has 273 focus points with Nikon pointing out that both cover approximately 90% of the imaging area horizontally and vertically. The... Read more...
Sony has tossed a new mirrorless digital camera into the limelight and the camera is a beast. It's called the A7R III and it has a 35mm full-frame 42.4MP back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor. The sensor uses a gapless, on-chip lens and anti-reflective coating for significantly improved light collection efficiency. The treatment gives the camera high sensitivity and low-noise performance along with a wide dynamic range.  Sony also fits the camera with a new front-end LSI that is able to double the readout speed of the image sensors. The camera has an updated BIONZ X processing engine that is 1.8 times faster than the processing engine in the outgoing A7R II. All that fancy technology gives... Read more...
If you’re a fan of Leica’s M series of rangefinder cameras, we’ve got a treat for you. The company today announced the high anticipated M10, which is the logical successor to the M240.

Fujifilm has a new flagship interchangeable lens camera to show off. It's the X-T10, the latest edition the X-Series digital camera lineup and successor to the mighty X-T1. Like its predecessor, the X-T10 combines old school design aesthetics with modern photography amenities and is a bona fide photographic workhorse for anyone who needs or desires higher quality shots than what’s possible with their smartphones. The X-T10 is a smaller, less expensive version of the X-T1, though don't read that to mean cheap. Priced at $800 for the body alone ($900 with XC16-50mm kit lens or $1,100 with XF18-55mm kit lens), casual hobbyists are likely to look in the other direction. It's... Read more...
Sharing photos with one's friends and family is a common, everyday occurrence. Instagram has gained over 100 million photo sharing users in just two years, and this is just one of many outlets people use to share photos with the people they love. While sharing pictures taken with your smartphone is easy and convenient since you can upload and share while on the go, the picture quality you get from a smartphone isn't quite on the same level as a standalone digital camera, with a larger sensor and better optics. Connected cameras such as the Samsung Galaxy Camera promise the best of both worlds for users who want to share their photos right away but who also want the image quality that only comes...

The LG Optimus G on Sprint sports a 13MP rear-facing camera so that you can shoot high quality photos about the size of Texas, and smartphones in general have upped the ante when it comes to snapping photos. Is there even a market for point-and-shoot cameras anymore? You better believe it. In an effort to stay relevant, we're starting to see and point-and-shoot camera makers embrace Android. Nikon and Samsung both offer Android-powered cameras, and come next month, you can add Polaroid to the list. The Polaroid Land Camera 103 sold for $90 in 1965, which amounts to more than $630 today after factoring in inflation. Polaroid's Android-powered point-and-shoot will presumably cost less than $630.... Read more...
Earlier this month, AT&T began offering the Samsung Galaxy Camera, a 4G connected camera that runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The Galaxy Camera lets you connect to either a cellular network or a Wi-Fi network to share your photos and videos. While Samsung isn't the first manufacturer to offer a connected camera, the Galaxy Camera is in a unique position since it is currently being sold through a major wireless carrier in the US. Nikon also offers an Android-embedded Wi-Fi only camera, the COOLPIX S800c, which runs on Android 2.3. The COOLPIX S800c also features built-in GPS. In the past, Japanese companies have largely dominated the digital camera industry. That doesn't mean Samsung can't... Read more...

You know you're getting older when styles you grew up with come full circle and are cool again. It happens with clothes, haircuts, music, and yes, even electronics. Underscoring this point are leaked images of Fujifilm's upcoming X-E1, a compact camera with modern internals dressed in retro digs. Depending on how old you are, the X-E1 looks like a camera you or your parents used to own several decades ago. Despite the old look, however, it's a high-end camera with a detachable lens and a layout that's very similar to Fujifilm's X-Pro1. The X-E1 doesn't appear to be a successor to that camera, however, and will likely be positioned as a lower cost alternative without an electronic viewfinder.... Read more...
