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.
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.
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.
Large camera sensors offer image quality that isn't found in cameras with smaller sensors, which are far more common and found in nearly all point-and-shoot compact cameras. Using a camera with a large sensor often means using a camera that is larger overall, something that doesn't appeal to some users. It is that particular photography niche that Samsung's NX mini targets.
Yet another camera manufacturer partially calls it quits in face of the onslaught of smartphones. Accoring to the Nikkan Kogyo, Canon has decided to let go of its low-priced digital compact camera business and instead focus its resources on high-end, and more expensive, digital single lens reflex or DSLR cameras.
Canon has just unveiled its latest compact digital camera, the super-zoom PowerShot SX700 HS. Now photographers can capture both the intricate details of a nearby flower as well as the majesty or danger of distant fauna without being encumbered by sophisticated and heavy equipment.
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.
