Sony's latest mirrorless camera is all about speed and power, which it appears to have in abundance. The newly-announced A6300 not only boasts the world's fastest autofocus in its class, but also offers continuous shooting at 11 fps (frames per second) and 4K movie recording in Super 35 mm format.
Olympus has revealed its latest retro mirrorless camera, the PEN-F. Designed as a digital successor to its iconic namesake, the new camera looks like an old-school rangefinder, but packs a thoroughly modern punch. The 20-megapixel Micro Four Thirds PEN-F features a high resolution electronic viewfinder, 5-axis image stabilization, and the ability to shoot 50-megapixel images.
Fujifilm has updated its X-series line-up of retro-styled cameras with the launch of three new shooters. The long-awaited X-Pro2, with an advanced hybrid viewfinder and a new 24.3-megapixel X-Trans sensor, becomes the new flagship rangefinder style camera, while the X-E2S update caters for the mid-range market. Also announced was the X70, a new fixed-lens 28-mm equivalent compact.
If you're looking for the latest in camera technology, mirrorless cameras are increasingly where it's at. High-end mirrorless shooters can now hold their own with top-notch image quality, features and build quality, often leaving their DSLR brethren looking bulky and out of date. Here Gizmag compares the key specs and features of some on the best mirrorless cameras on the market in 2015.
If your smartphone or compact camera is struggling to keep up with your photographic ambitions, it might be time to upgrade. Mirrorless cameras can offer a huge step up in image quality and performance, but choosing the right one can be difficult. Here Gizmag looks at six of the best mirrorless cameras for beginners.
Leica has released details of its full-frame mirrorless, interchangeable system – the Leica SL. Using the same excellent 24-megapixel CMOS sensor as the Leica Q we reviewed in June, the SL debuts with a 24-90 mm f/2.8-4 zoom lens. It looks like a beast, but it’s going to sit in an awkward spot – it’ll struggle to compete with full-frame workhorse DSLRs for resolution, lens choices or autofocus speed, and it’s far too big to enjoy the portability advantages of other mirrorless full-frames like Sony’s A7R II. And the price? Put it this way: if you sold both your kidneys at the average Iranian black market rate, you’d still be short.
After finally giving its EOS M3 a wider release, Canon has now introduced a new entry-level mirrorless camera, the EOS M10. Designed to appeal to those looking to upgrade to an interchangeable lens system, but who might be put off by too many buttons and dials, the M10 boasts an 18-megapixel APS-C sensor, a tilting 3-inch touchscreen, and built in Wi-Fi and NFC.
After updating its line-up of full frame mirrorless cameras with the A7 II and then the A7R II, it was a matter of when, not if, Sony's low light specialist, the A7S, would receive an update. Announced today, the ultra-sensitive A7S II boasts full frame internal 4K movie recording without pixel binning, in-camera 5-axis image stabilization, and an extended ISO which reaches all the way up to 409,600.
While the Panasonic GH4 has been a hit with photographers and videographers since its release last year, demanding users in the latter camp have been asking for a bit more. Now the firm has announced the GH4R, an advanced version of the camera which boasts unlimited 4K recording and V-Log L video capability for better post production potential. Existing GH4 users will also be able to benefit from the new V-Log L functionality via a paid software upgrade.
Following a decidedly ho-hum reception to its EOS M mirrorless interchangeable lens camera in 2012, Canon decided not to even release its follow-up, the M2, in the US. And when its successor, the M3, rolled out across Asia and Europe earlier this year, it looked like Canon was ready to give up on the US mirrorless market for now. However, the firm has announced the 24-megapixel shooter will finally get a US release later this year.
