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.
Canon has announced a new gaggle of digital cameras this evening, among them being the latest entrant to its EOS Rebel product line, the EOS Rebel T5 DSLR. This particular Rebel is aimed at entry-level photographers, and brings with it an 18-megapixel CMOS APS-C sensor and a DIGIC 4 processor.
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.
The last of the new digital point and shoot cameras that Nikon has unveiled today is the Coolpix S32. This camera is designed to be easy to use and family friendly with the ability to survive splashes and drops. The S32 promises to be easy enough to use that anyone in the family can take their own photos.
Panasonic has announced what it says is the first ever Digital Single Lens Mirrorless (DSLM) camera that offers 4K video recording. Photographers can use the camera to both record Ultra HD videos and snap stills, doing so with a 16.05-megapixel Digital Live MOS Sensor and a quad-core processor.
