Model numbers aren’t always intuitive. Take Canon, for example. Its digital single lens reflex (DSLR) cameras all go by the moniker EOS and then some
Camera companies need to find a way to get people to take pictures on more than just their phones, and so Nikon’s latest approach is actually kind of novel: make sure every camera talks to a phone.
Remember when cameras were solely used for grabbing stills? Not so anymore, as video plays a bigger part, and that seems to be the focus with Canon’s newly announced 80D digital SLR.
The mirrorless cameras have been waving 4K video for so long that many of us wondered when DSLRs would join the party. Fortunately, they’re about to, as Nikon delivers UHD video in two digital SLRs.
So you think your 20 megapixel phone is pretty spesh, and your 50 megapixel DSLR is amazeballs? Well Canon has developed a 250 megapixel sensor for a digital camera. How about them apples?
You can’t do much on a camera without a lens, and that glass — curved to be wide or built long to get you close — helps us see much more than our basic set of eyes. Canon knows this well, and this week has announced it has hit 110 million EF lenses.
Part of the reason cameras have been getting smaller over the years has been the convergence of technologies. For instance, you don’t need a top LCD if the big one at the back can do it. But while Canon has made changes like that in its own cameras, it will now be giving camera owners the choice.
CES has barely begun, but we haven’t exactly seen a plethora of new cameras, and Nikon looks good to start it off, with a new camera that shouldn’t cost too much and yet will offer the chance to peer into darkness.
Ready for some news this week that has nothing in common with mobiles, tablets, or wearables? Nikon has it in the form of a new digital SLR that can shoot holes of light in even the darkest of places.
Not impressed by all the mirror-less cameras? No worries, because Nikon is giving the enthusiast section of the market a bump.
Sometimes we don't get to spend as much time with gadgets as we'd like, but Canon's 100D is one we wish we could spend more with, as it manages to be an entry-level choice that ticks all the right boxes.
Canon's semi-pro enthusiast level 60D digital SLR has been ageing well, but it seems Canon is in the mood to replace it, with its new brother arriving with an expected name.
The mid-range of Nikon's digital SLRs is receiving a boost about two years since it's brother came out. This new entry updates the sensor, increases the speed, and should be here soon.
Cameras barely survive a year before being updated anymore, and we're seeing just that with the unveiling of a new camera from Nikon that builds upon the design and technology of last year's D5100.
With Photokina on next week, the camera companies are busy showing off their new products for the rest of the year. While more announcements are expected in the coming days, Nikon is now showing us its wares, with the D600 full-frame camera being outed in Australia.
Ahead of Photokina next week in Germany, Sony is showing its hand, with lots of new cameras aimed at letting anyone capture the best image possible, whether they're doing it with a small camera or one the size of your head.
