Among the other cameras Canon has unveiled tonight, the camera maker has taken the wraps off its new PowerShot G1 X Mark II, an update over the previous model that offers photographers a compact body with a larger-than-average image sensor and 12.8-megapixels. We've got the full specifications for you after the jump.
Sony has refreshed its Cyber-shot camera range, giving one of its flagship super-zooms a brain transplant, as well as offering some entry-level point-and-shoots for those still not willing to rely solely on their smartphones. The Cyber-shot HX400V replaces last year's HX300, combining a 20.4-megapixel CEMOS, 50x optical zoom, and new BIONZ X processor.
Sony thinks there's a market for big zooms among those with relatively small wallets, hence the Cyber-shot H400 revealed today. While it packs a 63x optical zoom - bigger even than the zoom on the Cyber-shot HX400V - Sony has opted to keep the price down with a relatively mainstream 20.1-megapixel sensor, smaller than what you'd often find on a superzoom camera.
Sony has revealed its latest Alpha camera, the A6000, a 24.3-megapixel compact DLSR slotting in-between the NEX-5T and the A65 and promising the fastest autofocus in the world. Measuring in at a 120 x 67 x 45 mm and 344g pre-lens, the A6000 has a new Exmor APS HD CMOS running through the same updated BIONZ X engine as in the A7 series, for an ISO range of 100-25600 and an autofocus lock in just 0.06 seconds. That's not all the makes the A600 look like it's shaping up to be one of the more interesting cameras of 2014, however.
Sigma has announced a new digital camera series that is called the Sigma dp Quattro. The Quattro name comes from the use of a new Foveon X3 digital image sensor that is of the Quattro generation. The new image sensor promises photos similar to traditional color film with multiple layers to capture all the information from visible light.
It would appear that we've hit a camera release pocket this week as brands like Panasonic bring on devices like the Lumix DMC-GH4 DSLM 4K digital camera for the masses. We've seen Nikon release three sets overnight, and there are more accessories coming to he market this season than you can shake a stick at. This begins with a Fitbit Flex collection of accessories by Tory Burch.
Nikon has rolled out a new compact rugged digital camera to its product lineup, the COOLPIX AW120. With this compact shooter comes a 16-megapixel CMOS sensor and three areas of ruggedness, offering both a variety of photography features and the ability to withstand harsh environments and risky outdoor photography.
A lower-on-the-totem pole option than the recently announced WG-4 and WG-4 GPS models is the Ricoh WG-20, a rugged compact digital camera for individuals who do a lot of shooting outdoors or underwater. The camera brings with it a host of features similar to the WG-4 models, though with a smaller display and sensor.
