The Pentax K-3 II is the latest flagship DSLR from Ricoh and one which, on paper, offers a number of interesting upgrades over its predecessors. We recently spent a couple of weeks with the surprisingly compact DSLR to see if features including an enhanced in-body shake reduction and a Pixel Shift Resolution mode can help the camera compete with the likes of the Canon EOS 7D II and Nikon D7200.
Sony has revealed the RX1R II, its latest full frame compact camera. This time the diminutive shooter packs a 42.4-megapixel sensor, a 35-mm F2 lens, and a pop-up electronic viewfinder into a device small enough to fit in your jacket pocket. The new camera also features an optical variable low pass filter which can be manually adjusted.
Canon has added a new pair of large-sensor-toting compact cameras to its G-series line-up. Following hot on the heels of the G3 X which was launched earlier this year, the PowerShot G5 X is an enthusiast-focused camera with a built-in high-resolution electronic viewfinder, while the G9 X sibling is a slimmer and more lightweight offering.
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.
Action cameras are continuing to get smaller and more powerful with the usual jumps in resolution and frame-rates. But they’re also gaining new skills such as the ability to communicate with external sensors, and automatically edit your extreme video in-camera. Gizmag compares the key specs of the current crop of action-cams to see which might be right for you.
Digital photo frames have been around for quite a few years now. However, Memento says that its new Smart Frame provides "never seen before" quality. The 4K ultra high-definition frame reportedly gives the illusion that the photos displayed are actually high-quality prints.
Expansive skies, mind-blowing scenery, a dozen motorcycles to follow and no pesky drone laws to stop us from publishing the video ... Loz spent two weeks in gorgeous Western Mongolia with a Phantom 3 Professional to give it a proper aerial photo and video test – and the results were pretty spectacular.
A Super Blood Moon is on the horizon. On the 27th of September, if the weather stays clear, stargazers around the globe are in for a treat. But if you want to photograph it, you’ll need to do a bit of planning. And thinking.
While there are no shortage of ways to shoot in 3D, these typically
involve devices which are more bulky, complex, and expensive than
traditional digital cameras. However, a team of engineers has discovered
a way to unlock the previously unrecognized 3D imaging capability of
ordinary digital camera technology, by repurposing existing components.
It's not long since conventional photographer wisdom stated that no-one
needed more than 12 megapixels. However, after Nikon reignited the
megapixel race with the D800, and with 250-megapixel cameras
on the horizon, pixels (along with sensor size) are once again where
it's at. We recently spent some time with the current full frame DSLR
megapixel champion, the Canon EOS 5Ds, to see what it's all about.
