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 shooting in Live View. It also supports Face Detection technology and can focus on up to 35 human faces.... Read more...
In need of a new camera? Aren't willing to go the DSLR route? Olympus has three new point and shoot options out today, none of which are highly complex. But that said, they all include the basics, and they all posses a sense of style. And in a pinch, that's what you need to get you through. The new mju-7050, FE-5050 and FE-4050 have arrived, and all three are definitely entry-level pocket cams for those who just want something simple and compact to have for those spontaneous moments in life that deserve to be remembered. From the top, the 7050 has a 14MP sensor, HD movie option, SD slot for expanding the 2GB of internal storage space, a 3" LCD and a 7x optical zoom. That's a fairly dense sensor... Read more...
Nikon recently added two new compact cameras to its lineup. The new COOLPIX S1100pj broadens your ability to share photos, documents, and more with its built-in projector and ability to connect to your computer via USB. When connected to a PC, the camera can project anything that is displayed on the computer screen or JPEG images saved on the camera's memory card or internal memory. The projector in the COOLPIX S1100pj is 40 percent brighter than its predecessor. This 14-lumen internal projector works with the camera's touchscreen user interface. For ease of use, the camera also has a built-in stand. The COOLPIX S1100pj can project images up to 47-inches from over 7-feet away. Additional features... Read more...
Most of you already see the world in 3D, so why not come out with a camera that takes 3D photos and movies? One reason would be that you already tried that and, well, things didn't turn out so hot. But rather than tuck its tail between its legs and give up, FujiFlim has stormed back to the market with its FinePix RealPix Real 3D W3, the followup act to the ill-regarded W1. This time around FujiFilm bumped up the LCD screen real estate to 2.5 inches, added 720p video recording, and HDMI 1.4 for viewing those pics and videos straight away on your swank HDTV. "Last year, Fujifilm introduced the first real, complete solution for 3D digital photography, once again showing our commitment to the evolution... Read more...
Samsung's ST80 digital camera might be just the cure for social networking nuts who get the shakes when unplugging from cyberspace for too long. That's because the ST80 is Samsung's latest in a line of Wi-Fi enabled point-and-shoots, meaning Little Miss Molly MySpace and Freddy Facebook can fling those Kodak Samsung moments online from any hotspot instead of having to rush home to fire up their PC. "We want to let people share their favorite pictures quickly while they’re on the move, and the ST80 does just that," said Sangjin Park, President of the Digital Imaging Business, Samsung Electronics. "Connectivity is everywhere, and at Samsung we are committed to bringing these wireless capabilities... Read more...
Maybe you're not interested in forking over a handful of hundreds for one of Samsung's new DualView cameras. That's okay, Samsung isn't holding a grudge, and to prove it, the company has gone and released a sub-$200 point-and-shoot that should slide neatly into your shirt or pants pocket. It's called the PL200, a stylish little digicam that measures a scant 3.9 x 2.3 x 0.83 inches, yet harbors a respectable 3.0-inch LCD screen. "The PL200 is the ideal digital camera for those who value simplicity but also long for a more immersive digital imaging experience," said Reid Sullivan, senior vice president of Mobile Entertainment Marketing, Samsung Electronics America. "With the PL200, consumers can... Read more...
Panasonic introduced five new digital cameras, including a hybrid model with a MOS sensor, two "bright-lens" cameras, a rugged model, and a super zoom. Bright-lens is a marketing term that describes cameras with a lens aperture that can open much larger than most point and shoot models. By offering a larger aperture, the cameras allow more light to be directed through the lens to the image sensor. As one of Panasonic's compact models, the new LUMIX DMC-FX700 packs many advanced features into a sleek, slim package. The LUMIX FX700 can record 1080 full HD videos in the AVCHD format. It also has a 3-inch touchscreen LCD, 24mm ultra wide-angle F2.2 super bright LEICA DC VARIO-SUMMICRON lens, and... Read more...

This camera can also record 720p HD video in the AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) Lite format. Other features include a 3-inch touchscreen interface that controls most of the camera functions, a new Motion Deblur mode, Intelligent Zoom mode, and a so-called Happy Mode which increases the saturation and brightness of images in-camera. Panasonic also announced a new 8mm/f3.5 fisheye lens for its Lumix G line of Micro Four Thirds cameras. This new lens has a 180-degree field of... 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 also will present models in "a more realistic in-home presentation." In addition to a change in display... Read more...

Back at PMA earlier in the year, Sony teased us with prototypes of the company's forthcoming "Alpha Compact" cameras. These were similar in style to the Micro Four Thirds options already on the market from Olympus and Panasonic, combining the size of a point-and-shoot with the flexibility of a lens-changing DSLR. Today, Sony has come clean with those very cameras, giving them official names and specification sheets. Sony's two new Alpha compact interchangeable lens digital cameras are the NEX-5 and NEX-3, both of which promise to provide "the quality of a digital SLR in a compact body that is easy to slip into a small purse or jacket pocket for ultimate portability." They're also the world's... Read more...
Talk about a blast from the past. Polaroid is bringing back instant photography, and this time, we're not talking about a portable printer. At the end of last year, Polaroid announced plans to offer a One Step Camera sometime in 2010. Now, the company is celebrating the return of instant film photography by officially launching the Polaroid 300 camera. The Polaroid 300 camera is the first of many new products the company intends to deliver. The Polaroid 300 features classic Polaroid instant film, an automatic flash, and four scene setting modes. "We are thrilled that today marks the return of instant.  It's bigger – and better – than ever. The Polaroid Movement is one that we... Read more...
To say that Leica is a trusted name in the camera industry is just too easy. That's a well-known fact, and we doubt it'll change anytime soon. The company is primarily known for shipping extremely expensive and rare rangefinders, which are smaller cameras with larger sensors that can approach DSLR quality in a body that's barely larger than the average point and shoot camera. Today, that very company is introducing one of their cheaper models: the V-LUX 20.It's modeled after Panasonic's ZS7, and in reality, not much has changed on the Leica version. The price tag, of course, is one of them. There's a 12.1MP sensor, built-in GPS tagging, a 12x optical zoom lens (C-VARIO-ELMAR 4.1-49.2mm f/3.3-4.9... Read more...
