The recently announced Nikon D5200 looks almost identical to the D5100 it follows, but looks can be deceptive. Inside, the new DX-shooting mid-range DSLR has received several substantial upgrades including the addition of a 24MP CMOS sensor, a significantly upgraded auto-focus system which now boasts 39 AF points, and a new-look user interface.  Read More

The Stow-Away lens cap holder is a DSLR accessory which addresses the problem of what to do with your lens cap while taking photos. While the majority of photographers simply slip their lens cap into their pocket, others (nudist photographers perhaps?) apparently need an alternative. The Stow-Away lens cap holder attaches under your camera and gives you somewhere to stow your lens cap.  Read More

Hello, world! The Magic Lantern team has finally cracked the Canon EOS 7D. New firmware wi...

The EOS 7D is Canon's top-shelf crop-frame digital SLR - and since its release, it's been a favourite among SLR filmmakers. Like its big brother the 5D, the 7D can be wrangled into an outstanding piece of cinema equipment, but that's not really what it has been designed for – and the onboard software reflects that fact. Enter the firmware hackers at Magic Lantern, who have tacked on a bunch of extra functionality from focus peaking and focus stacking to zebra striping, expanded audio controls, time-lapse intervalometers and expanded exposure bracketing. For years, this functionality was available on more or less every Canon HDSLR except the 7D, due to the fact that it runs two DIGIC processors, not one. But yesterday, after what they've described as an "Aha! moment" the ML team announced they've figured out how to port the Magic Lantern software to the 7D. 7D owners, your new Magic Lantern firmware is on its way!  Read More

Lensbaby's new Spark lens allows photographers to get shots with one 'sweet spot' of focus...

Although there’s an almost infinite number of effects that can be added to already-taken photos using software, there’s definitely something to be said for the on-location creativity that comes with good ol’ optical in-camera effects. That’s why Lensbaby designed the Spark, a new lens that it announced today. Spark is intended to capture images “that have a sweet spot of focus surrounded by beautiful artistic blur.”  Read More

Canon has unveiled the EOS 6D, its smallest and lightest full-frame DSLR

It's a good time to be in the market for a full-frame DLSR. Last week, the Sony A99 and Nikon D600 were announced, and now Canon has outed the EOS 6D, its smallest and lightest full-frame DSLR. Despite also boasting built-in Wi-Fi and GPS, the EOS 6D is described as an "affordable" camera and comes in somewhat cheaper than most previous full-frame shooters.  Read More

The Nikon D600 could make a good back-up camera for pros, or give most enthusiasts all the...

Since the launch of the megapixel-monster that is the D800, there have been rumors that Nikon was set to release a "full-frame camera for the rest of us." Today, after several months of the worst-kept secret in the camera industry (probably since the D800 itself), Nikon has revealed the D600. It's a 24.3-megapixel full-frame DSLR aimed at enthusiasts, with a smaller body and featuring wireless sharing and capture.  Read More

Sony has announced three new full-frame cameras - the Cyber-shot DSC-RX1 compact, the new ...

Sony has claimed a trio of full-frame firsts with its latest announcements. The title for world's first fixed lens 35 mm full-frame digital camera goes to the palm-sized Cyber-shot DSC-RX1 fixed lens camera, while the world's lightest full-frame interchangeable-lens digital camera crown rests on the head of the new Alpha SLT-A99 and the NEX-VG900 takes the world's first consumer 35mm full-frame interchangeable lens camcorder.  Read More

If you ever need an example of the exponential rise of technology, look no further than the digital camera. The ability to capture images on an electronic sensor has transformed photography and the way we record life's precious moments (and plenty of the un-precious ones as well) in less than 25 years. So how will we capture our holiday snaps when another two decades have passed? By 2030, will today's spanking new DSLR be as unrecognizable as a box brownie is today? Here's a look at some of the significant innovations and ideas we've encountered in recent times that may hold some clues.  Read More
