The D810 is Nikon's latest big-megapixel full frame DSLR

Two years ago, when Nikon unleashed the D800 and D800E on the world, their 36.3-megapixel sensors shocked many photographers (and their hard drives). Now, Nikon has revealed its update to the megapixel-monsters in the form of the D810, an equally megapixeled beast with a wider ISO range, faster continuous shooting, and improved video functions.  Read More

An HDR still made from successive frames of video using HDRinstant

Ordinarily, cameras either expose for the dark areas of a scene by leaving everything else over-exposed, or for the brightest parts of a scene by leaving everything else under-exposed. Thanks to the advent of high dynamic range (HDR) photography, however, it's now possible to produce single images in which everything is exposed properly. Although HDR photos are typically captured with still cameras, HDRinstant software allows them to be created from frames of video.  Read More

Gizmag compares the Panasonic FZ1000 and the Sony RX10

Bridge cameras, with their fixed super-zoom lenses, have traditionally offered users a great focal range, but not necessarily the image quality to match. That changed with the Sony RX10, which used a large one-inch-type sensor to boost photographic quality. But now there's a new challenger on the block, the Panasonic FZ1000, which offers much of what makes the RX10 great, and a bit more too. Here Gizmag looks at how the two cameras compare.  Read More

Following in the footsteps of the Sony RX10, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 is another DSLR-style bridge camera featuring a large one-inch-type 20-megapixel sensor. But this model has a few extra tricks up its sleeve, including a lens which can zoom to an impressive 400-mm equivalent, the ability to record 4K video, and a lower price tag.  Read More

Canon has launched a photo-centric cloud vault named irista

Back in 2012, Canon embarked on a project which aimed to solve the issue of user photos being scattered across numerous media cards, mobile devices and computer-based storage. The free beta trial of its Project1709 online storage and photo management platform was launched at Photokina in September of that year, and developers have been fine-tuning the service ever since. Now Canon believes it's ready for prime time, and has removed the beta tag for a full public version called irista. The photo-centric cloud vault offers new sign-ups a generous helping of free storage, includes some nifty social networks integration tools and is claimed to make organizing and finding digital memories a snap.  Read More
