Nikon introduced the D5000 DSLR today. This new camera targets photo enthusiasts and new DSLR users with its multitude of features including a new 2.7-inch Vari-angle LCD monitor and HD video recording capabilities. The D5000 also incorporates many technologies found in Nikon’s pro-level DSLRs such as Nikon’s EXPEED image processing system and 3D Color Matrix Metering II. This 12.3 megapixel camera can capture high definition video with ease. HD movie clips (1,280 x 720) can be recorded at 24 frames per second with sound. Nikon’s D-Movie Mode and expanded automatic Scene Modes are also available to assist users with video capture. D-Movie clips are saved as Motion JPEG AVI files. The D5000’s... Read more...
Nikon is refreshing its COOLPIX line with eight new point and shoot models. Of the eight new cameras, four are Style Series models, one is a Performance Series camera, and the final three are Life Series models. All eight COOLPIX models feature Nikon’s NIKKOR lenses and Nikon’s EXPEED digital image processing concept. The COOLPIX line also gets a handful of new features with these announcements, including a Smart Portrait System that captures smiling faces without blinks; an Enhanced Face-priority Auto Focus that can detect up to 12 faces and adjust exposure accordingly; and a Scene Auto Selector that can select the best shooting mode for the situation. Here’s a brief look at what each of the... Read more...
If you’re seriously considering taking your photography skills to the next level and have about eight grand lying around, then you’ll be interested to hear that Nikon announced the new D3X DSLR. While not cheap, this camera definitely brings its fair share of bragging rights. The D3X can take pictures that will put other cameras to shame, thanks in part to its 24.5-megapixel (6,048 x 4,032) CMOS FX sensor. Additionally, this high-end camera sports full resolution shooting at up to 5 frames per second, an ISO from 100 to 1600, and a newly updated EXPEED image processing system. As an upgrade to the 12.1-megapixel FX-format D3 introduced in 2007, the D3X is ready to tackle just about anything you... Read more...
Just in time for Christmas, Nikon is granting the wish of many by shipping the new GP-1 GPS add-on dongle. This handy little add-on was first announced back in August. The GP-1 geotags images taken with a compatible DSLR by recording latitude, longitude, altitude, and time information. Many image processing software programs support geotagging, including Nikon’s own ViewNX. Online services such as Flickr also support geotagging. According to Nokia, it’ll take about 45 seconds for the device to acquire satellites from a cold start, and only 5 seconds from a hot start. Approximate dimensions of the dongle are 2 x 1.8 x 1 inches. The GP-1 GPS slides into the hot-shoe on many DSLRs and connects to... Read more...
Better than the D70s but not quite on par with the D200s, the Nikon D80 Digital SLR camera is Nikon's next hope for the mid-range market. If you're looking to get yourself into amateur photography and need a good camera to start with, the D80 could be the right fit for you, as you'll be getting some excellent features without breaking the bank. "Spotting a new and improved 10.2-megapixel image sensor, the Nikon D80 immediately poses a concern and a challenge for Sony's infant A100 DSLR. The competition from Nikon's latest DSLR is all the more urgent considering some of its specifications such as the image processing engine, AF system,... Read more...
We haven't posted any links to digital camera reviews for some time, but according to Bytesector, Nikon's Coolpix L3 5MP deserves some attention. The suggested MSRP for the camera is around $270, which makes it a great buy for someone who's looking for a decent camera that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. "Nikon's L series got a big push this year with three new models and offers the Coolpix L3 as the only new 5 megapixel camera for 2006. The L3 provides some of Nikon's reliable features to help you take better pictures. But have they addressed the fidgety flash we have experienced here at Bytesector all too often?"... Read more...
I came across some great new pictures of Nintendo's Revolution controller today(thanks blue!). The Wavebird adapter is not surprising as the system supports Gamecube titles. There's still plenty of criticism about the new controller, and Nintendo needs to show it off a little more, possibly with demos of current favorites such as Metroid or Zelda. Anyway, enjoy the news folks, goodnight! OCZ PC2 4200 Gold Edition (2x 1Gb) 3-3-3-8 @ Club Overclocker "For the past year I've always recommended 1gb of good DDR or DDR2. No more, no less. That was until I started playing new games like Doom 3, Half Life 2, and now Battlefield 2. While Doom 3 was more graphics card intensive, it also needed a ton... Read more...
Hey everyone. Well I finally got a chance to give the F.E.A.R. demo a run... it's all right. The game it's self, while not being anything we haven't seen before(except for the creepy little girl), seems to promise some intense action and killer graphics. However the demo seemed to need a little more polish, and unfortunately I am one of the ones who are experiencing horrible stuttering. If Monolith can iron out that issue and the other bugs that are found in the demo, we'll be in for a real treat later on this year. Oh, and speaking of the demo, Mr. Ghazi from TweakGuides has put out a quick guide for your tweaking pleasure. Now, on with the news. HP/Compaq TC4200 Tablet PC "As far as any... Read more...
Hey folks, I hope your all having a good weekend. I'm just stopping in for a few minutes to update you on the news that's floating around this weekend... enjoy! C3 Expo 2005 Coverage @ XYZ Computing "It is conveniently (for me) located at the Javits Center in New York City so even though it mainly featured enterprise level hardware and services I figured I would stop by and see if I could dig up anything interesting. Some of the more interesting companies attending were Google, CMS Products, SilverStone, Pepper Pads, and NEC. In addition to the hardware their was lots of software, conferences, and keynote speakers." Nikon Coolpix S1 5MP Digital Camera @ Bytesector "It's slim, tiny,... Read more...
