It looks as though camera guru Canon is readying a full-frame mirrorless shooter for photographers who prefer to go that route as opposed to a digital SLR (DSLR). Called the EOS R, the upcoming mirrorless camera features a 30.3-megapixel full size CMOS sensor with dual pixel CMOS autofocus and a bunch of other goodies. Nothing is yet official, mind you, and all of the specs and photos are coming from a Japanese-language website that has leaked the details. We always caution to take these things with a grain of salt. That said, the information at least appears legitimate, and falls in line with... Read more...
Never believe what you see in online ads and television commercials. Have you ever seen a breakfast cereal commercial? It looks delicious, but that's not really milk you see in the bowl—a common replacement is glue, as it won't make the cereal soggy for photos. Lest anyone need a reminder that what you see might not actually be what it purports to be, Huawei has once again been 'caught' using an image take with a DSLR camera to demonstrate one its smartphone cameras. The latest incident involves an ad in Egypt for the company's Nova 3 handset. It features two central characters, one of which... Read more...
Photographers do not always have the luxury of getting up close and personal with their subject matter. So, it's sometimes up to the zoom capabilities of the camera. Nikon is hoping to help with far away shots with its Coolpix P1000, a compact digital camera with an mind boggling 125x optical zoom, which is the world's highest on any digital camera to date. The zoom lens on the Coolpix P1000 has the 35mm-equivalent focal range of 24-3000mm. On top of the optical zoom capabilities, Nikon's latest camera has a 250x Dynamic Fine Zoom to shoot up to 6000mm, when those situations arise. "The Coolpix... Read more...
Sony may not be the first name that comes to most minds when considering a new camera purchase, but it's increasingly becoming silly to not weigh it as an option. Both the company's point-and-shoots and DSLRs offer excellent features for their respective pricing, both on the "lower-end" and also the high-end. At the high-end, the company's brand-new $4,499 USD a9 (or "α9") is a force to be reckoned with. At 24.2 megapixels (6000 x 4000), it's clear that Sony is not too worried about competing in the megapixel race - and that's a great thing. What's more important is that the camera includes a full-frame... Read more...
When the topic of encryption comes up, it is often related to smartphones and tablets, and the differing opinions on the matter between hardware makers such as Google and Apple versus government agencies. Those are not the only areas where encryption matters. In an open letter to the camera makers around the world, Freedom of the Press Foundation makes a plea to build encryption into still photo and video cameras to protect the "safety and security" of photojournalists and filmmakers, along with their sources.The open letter is signed by more 150 documentary filmmakers and photojournalists. It... Read more...
Canon today is delivering a rather big update to its venerable EOS 5D professional full-frame DSLR. The original 12.8-megapixel EOS 5D was introduced in 2005, which was followed up by Mark II and Mark III updates in 2008 and 2012 respectively. Today signals the arrival of the EOS 5D Mark IV, which is just as impressive as you would expect give then four-year gap between releases. First and foremost, the 5D Mark IV has received significantly upgraded internals, going from the 2012-era 22.3-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor to an all-new 30.4-megapixel CMOS sensor (native ISO range of 100–32,000)....

Nikon has a new entry-level digital SLR (DSLR) camera for anyone who's outgrown their point-and-shoot and is looking for something better suited for serious photography. It's the Nikon D3400 and it's designed to help budding photography buffs learn more about the hobby without feeling intimidated by a swath of advanced settings. The way it does that is through Nikon's Guide Mode, an integrated feature that provides step-by-step assistance when adjusting camera settings. Photographers can turn the top Command Dial to Guide Mode and see a full range of capture options, which the camera then guides... Read more...
Truth in advertising. You never know what to expect when it comes to the depths that manufacturers will go to make their products look better than they actually are. From photoshopped images of products to retouched photos captured from smartphone cameras, you have to be careful that you aren’t duped by marketing geniuses. For the folks over at Chinese devices-OEM Huawei, it appears that the company got caught red handed trying to pass off a rather exquisite photo of a woman with her hair catching a few rays of sunlight. The caption for the photo (the Google+ posting has since been removed) read:... Read more...
Digital SLR cameras are finally starting to catch up with smartphones! Surprised by that statement? Well, we're not talking about picture quality—DSLR cameras still and might always take better photos than smartphones—but in terms of offering basic connectivity features even in entry-level models. Such is the case with Canon's new EOS Rebel T6, an entry-level DSLR with built-in Wi-Fi and NFC support. We take Wi-Fi and NFC support for granted when it comes to most mobile devices, including tablets and smartphones, but it's not difficult to find a DSLR that lacks one or both, especially in what's...

I've been relatively happy with my Canon T6i (750D) and its 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor, but as crazy as it sounds, what Canon is cooking up has nearly 100 more megapixels to offer. More specifically, Canon is developing a digital SLR camera with a resolution of approximately 120 effective megapixels, the company announced today. That's more than double the 50.6MP CMOS sensor used in its existing EOS 5DS.This isn't entirely new ground for Canon. Back in 2010, the company developed the world's first APS-H sized CMOS image sensor with 120 megapixels, which boasted a mind boggling 13,280 x 9,184 pixels... Read more...
Canon U.S.A. announced a bunch of new camera models today, including a pair of EOS Rebel digital SLR shooters that are the first in the series to feature built-in Wi-Fi and NFC capabilities. The new EOS Rebel T6s and T6i DSLR cameras also sport a newly developed 24.2-megapixel CMOS imaging sensor, offering the highest resolution available on the EOS line.The new cameras are aimed at two different types of users. According to Canon, the T6s is suitable for photography enthusiasts and those already experienced with entry-level cameras who now want to tinker with more advanced features and functions,...

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...
