Mirrorless cameras may well be on the way to replacing digital SLRs, but they’re not there yet. One area where compact systems have the ability to be better is that whole “compact” thing, and Panasonic’s upcoming GM5 looks to be there in a big— err, small way.
Mirror-less cameras tend to be small and portable, but not everyone is after that. Some people want big, bulky, and capable of taking a beating, and that looks like what Samsung is gearing up for with a new camera announced at Photokina.
Overseas, there’s a bunch of things happening in the world of cameras, with Photokina on in Germany showcasing all that’s new in the world of cameras and digital cameras, and one of the important things happening is actually a phone.
As Photokina starts up in Germany — the international camera specific equivalent of CES or IFA — Canon is up with a couple of announcements for consumers, and whether you like lots of power or lots of zoom, there’s something for you.
While we love the microUSB/USB combo drives, the fact that they’re never made for USB 3.0 bothers us, but Lexar is changing that this year, and even providing a massive boost of storage for smartphones, too.
Smartphone cameras have changed self portraiture forever, just ask Olympus, which has changed the way its LCD flips around for the selfie generation, evident in an all new camera heading to stores soon.
The action camera that started it all has certainly shown that it can survive a lot of things, but can it survive being on the back of your dog? Now you can find out.
A new entry in the Sony Alpha series of cameras, the a5100 looks to pack some serious technology for both the beginner and enthusiast into a small body, and even the photographer keen to bring something small with them.
Good cameras aren’t cheap, and better cameras carry heavier price tags than good cameras, so what does a new Leica system aimed at the mirror-less market cost, and is it worth its weight in gold?
You can never be totally prepared on a holiday with a digital camera, and unless you feel like bringing with lots of lenses, it can be hard to know what to take with you, and that’s where super-zooms come in.
