Nikon has introduced a couple of new cameras this evening, most notable among them being the new Nikon 1 J4 interchangeable lens compact camera. With the camera comes several features, as well as bragging rights for being the world's fast continuous shooting camera when using auto-focus tracking.
Sony has revealed the Alpha A7S, capable of 4K video and delivering a vast ISO range of 50 to 409,600. Billed the world's first full-frame sensor camera that's capable of full pixel read-out - without any pixel binning process - for movie and 4K HDMI video output, the A7S joins the Alpha A7 and A7S as a compact, interchangeable-lens alternative to bulky DSLRs and video cameras.
Olympus has just revealed its latest digital camera the takes the best of both worlds of its PEN compact design and its relatively new optical 5-axis image stabilization technology. While the camera is loaded with premium features, a lot of it revolves around shooting that perfect movie.
Panasonic's new digital interchangeable lens, the H-X015 LEICA DG SUMMILUX 15mm / F1.7 ASPH, is in the news for being one of those new innovations that promise photographers to capture bokeh effect with clear picture quality while avoiding ghost and flare. You might say that the new lens has all the key ingredients that allow for superior defocused reportage pictures.
Among the smattering of wearables news this month comes one that joins the ranks of recent action camcorders: the Panasonic HX-A500, the first wearable 4K 25p camcorder. The device is a two-piece unit of sorts, featuring the lens for head mounting attached to a cable that connects it to the main control unit.
Trying to take another stab at the digital camera market, Samsung is reported to have filed a patent for a camera whose display is completely see-through. Whether this so-called innovation will be enough to put the company on top of that market segment still remains to be seen when an actual device takes flesh.
As leaked last month, Samsung has revealed the newest member of its NX SMART Camera line, the Samsung NX mini. Claimed to be the world's slimmest and lightest interchangeable-lens digital camera, the NX mini seems to have been honed to perfection to satisfy the undying need for the perfect selfie.
Nikon has taken the wraps off its new 1 V3 digital camera, a compact offering with what the maker is hailing as a world's first for interchangeable lens cameras: 20FPS continuous shooting when using AF tracking. In addition, the camera is said to have the shortest lag time of all cameras in the same category.
Panasonic rolled out a new high-end digital camera back in February that is called the Lumix GH4 DSLM. DSLM stands for Digital Single Lens Mirrorless technology. We knew the specifications and even had a video that offered up an idea of how good the 4K video recorded with the camera would look in February.
