Nikon D5 DSLR camera is in development, will replace aging D4

Nikon D5 DSLR camera is in development, will replace aging D4

Nikon's impressive D4 professional-level DSLR camera has been available since early 2012, and while it's still a fixture among many photographers, in the tech world it's still beginning to show its age. That may be why Nikon has decided to make a formal announcement about its successor, the D5, confirming that it exists, is in development, and, well, little else, unfortunately. They did describe the D5 as a "next-generation professional" camera, but we'll likely have to wait until 2016 for further details.

Light L16 point-and-shoot takes on DSLRs with 16 cameras

Light L16 point-and-shoot takes on DSLRs with 16 cameras

In the past, having two main cameras, or even three in some rare cases, on a smartphone sounded ridiculous. How would you react, then, to a digital camera that has 16 of them?

That's not simply a design pattern but 16 different cameras behind 16 lenses. And it's not just for show either. Light envisions the L16 to take on DSLRs and mirrorless cameras by sheer number of lenses.

Nikon nudges photographers toward DSLRs with new app

Mobile photography has done many things: opened up a photography hobby to the masses, ushered in a glut of filtered images, and further divided the professionals (and aspiring professionals) from the amateurs. Many still turn to professional-grade cameras to meet their needs, DSLRs standing chief among them, but getting started is tricky -- there are numerous lenses and accessories available for digital SLR cameras, and pining down exactly what you need is hard. Nikon has taken a step, however, to simplify the process.

Hack lets you run Linux kernel on Canon EOS DSLRs

Hack lets you run Linux kernel on Canon EOS DSLRs

Of the well known operating systems in the world, Linux has had the distinct reputation of being installed almost anywhere there is a processor to be found. Of course, just because you can, doesn't mean you should, but running Linux on any computer possible has always been an exercise in skill and a cause for bragging. While Canon's digital cameras are not exactly as esoteric as refrigerators and washing machines, getting Linux to run on these more often than not very closed devices can open up a world of possibilities.

Pentax K-S2 is a small but rugged DSLR with built-in WiFi
