Nikon has pulled the cool new Coolpix S1100pj projector camera into the spotlight. The camera has an integrated projector that can throw those images and the video you record on the camera onto a wall or other surface for watching. The S1100pj is the second camera from Nikon with an integrated projector.
Near the end of July, the features list for the upcoming Nikon D3100 DSLR supposedly leaked. And, truth be told, they were all pretty standard upgrades. Nothing all too mind boggling and what not. But, they were still upgrades. This time around, thanks to a German magazine that has apparently published new and improved specifications for the entry-level camera, we're wondering which rumor is more accurate.
Rumors of a replacement for Nikon's D90 DSLR have been fuelled by reports that the company is requesting the return of retail demo units. According to Nikon Rumors, employees at a major retailer are reporting that "all stores have been told to remove demo Nikon D90 bodies from display and send them back to head office," while others claim the Nikon SB-600 flash is also up for replacement at Photokina 2010.
Nikon's camera plans are once again in the headlines, as company president Makoto Kimura reveals plans to launch a new model potentially as early as this financial year. According to Bloomberg, the camera may have an "enhanced function" for recording video (and could, the news site suggest, also be mirrorless) being a "new concept" for Nikon in Kimura's words.
Options never hurt. That's why we're happy to hear that the Sony NEX line of mirrorless cameras is going to get a few options for themselves here shortly. Thanks to Rayqual, a manufacturer out of Japan, the pair of cameras is primed and ready to get Leica, Nikon, and Canon lenses attached to their faces. Something as simple as a lens adapter is the catalyst, making it possible for us to take even better shots than we could before.
When it comes to optics and lenses for cameras of all sorts Carl Zeiss is one of the most well known names in the industry. The company typically offers lenses and optics on cameras and video cameras and has unveiled a new range of lenses for DSLR cameras that shoot HD video.
