02/11/2014, Sony puts an end to the a6000 (alpha 6000) camera by releasing the official specifications and information about it. First of all, keep in mind that this is an NEX-style interchangeable lens camera and not a DSLR camera. It’s not new, but if you missed it, Sony is phasing out the NEX product name, which will eventually be completely merged with the “Alpha” line of products. I know, it’s a […]
01/15/2014, Shortly before the first Galaxy Camera came out, we knew that Android cameras were going to land and stay. As cameras get smarter, the complexity of the software stack also becomes too hard to develop for camera makers (which are definitely NOT software-centric folks). Samsung is the company that has the best Android Camera offering today, and with the Galaxy NX, it just took the whole sector to the next […]
01/06/2014, [CES 2014] Sony is coming full force to CES with a great camera lineup. The new Sony α5000 camera (model ILCE-5000) packs DSLR-like performance in a super compact and elegant body. At less than 8 oz, this WiFi connected interchangeable lens camera is equipped with a 20.1 MP APS-C sized sensor and a 3-inch TFT LCD display (460.8K dots) that can flip upwards up to 180 degrees.
12/09/2013, Back in October, Sony announced the Cyber-Shot RX10, a 24-200mm camera that had the particularity of featuring a lens with a fixed f2.8 aperture, regardless of how far you zoom. Inside, it shares most of its hardware with its famed RX100 older sibling which was built for ultra-compact low-light performance. When I previously covered the RX10, I imagined that it would be a great “do it all” camera since most […]
10/16/2013, After having been leaked a couple of days ago, the Sony A7 and A7R have now gone “official”. Both cameras use the E-mount and share lenses with the Sony NEX Series. The FE premium lenses for full-frame sensors would be more adequate, but there are so few of them… Those cameras are the full-frame monsters that die-hard fans were hoping for, and they respectively use impressive 36 and 24 Megapixel […]
10/16/2013, Sony has just announced the RX10, a 24-200mm (about 8X optical zoom) fixed lens camera that has a fixed (and large!) f2.8 aperture. This is really interesting in terms of specifications, because it’s not easy to find this type of f2.8 (constant) zoom lens in compact cameras. The sensor of the RX10 is the same as the one found in the (awesome) Sony RX100 II camera, and if you are […]
06/26/2013, Fresh off the presses, the Sony DSC-RX100 M2 (Mark II) comes in addition of the existing RX-100, which it will supplement and bring a 41% improvement in noise reduction during low-light photography and a 10% faster auto-focus (AF). The new model comes with a huge 1-inch BackSide Illuminated Sensor (BSI), and this particular size is very big for a BSI sensor. If you are not familiar with BSI, it is […]
06/24/2013, After a few leaks, the Fujifilm X-M1 camera has now become “official”. This is Fujifilm’s latest X-Series interchangeable lens camera system that is designed to bring a great ratio between image quality, light weight (11.6 oz) and a solid build quality. It is an addition to the Xpro-1 and X-E1 which not only share a close design language, but also the 16.3 Megapixel APS-C CMOS image sensor with the X-M1. […]
06/20/2013, Samsung has just launched the Samsung Galaxy NX Camera at an event in London, and it is an Android camera that features interchangeable lens, making it the first of its kind. As we expected when Samsung introduced the original Galaxy Camera, the Korean giant is now climbing to the top of the image quality ladder by adding interchangeable lenses to its Android cameras.
05/21/2013, The folks in Japan sometimes come up with some pretty creative gadgets, usually novel, but creative nonetheless. If you’re in the market for such a novel gadget, Thanko has a miniature camera that you might want to take a look at. This is not the first miniature camera we’ve seen, and by miniature we don’t mean that it is compact, but as you can see in the image above, is […]
05/01/2013, The Samsung NX2000 features a 20.3MP APS-C CMOS Sensor that allows for images taken even in low-light conditions to pop with color and is capable of delivering continuous high-quality images
04/23/2013, Sony is adding a new compact 30X optical zoom camera to its Cyber-Shot line with the Cyber-Shot HX50V. It is Sony’s most compact (4.4”x2.6”x1.2” for 9.6 oz) “long zoom” camera to date, and that’s particularly true if you compare it to the Sony Cyber-Shot HX200V or Cyber-Shot HX100V found on the market today. It features a 20.4 Megapixel Exmor R CMOS image sensor which sends raw information to the BIONZ […]
04/06/2013, [Imaging Week] The Nikon D7100 is the younger sibling of the famous Nikon D7000, a star product which was launched in late 2010. On paper, the Nikon D7100 is much more of an upgrade than its numbering scheme may lead you to believe. First of all, the sensor goes to 24 Megapixel (from 16), the auto-focus (AF) system now samples 51 points, and the video recording mode can shoot up […]
04/04/2013, [Imaging Week] The arrival of the Canon EOS T5i on the DSLR scene didn’t make much waves, and for good reason: this update of the T4i (650D) is so close to its predecessor that you have to dig into the software to find a difference: the EOS T5i can preview the Creative Filters in real-time, which is one of the most underwhelming (although welcome) feature addition to this camera. Yes, […]
