Sony has revealed the new Alpha A77 II DSLR, updating the A77 and A700 with a new autofocus system, BIONZ X processing, and a claimed 20-percent bump in light sensitivity over its predecessor. The new camera now packs a 79-point phase detection AF system and supports up to f/2.8 aperture, while the sensor is 24.3-megapixels as per the old version, albeit with a new structure that Sony claims makes it considerably more precise than the outgoing camera.
Sony has been making its line of DSLR cameras in the Alpha range for a number of years. A new camera that will fit into that line has been unveiled by Sony Australia. The new camera is called the a3500 and along with images of the camera, Sony has offered full specifications as well.
The DSLR market is a highly competitive one, and the relatively newer high-def HD-SLR will probably be even more so. Now Nikon is outing its latest D series flagship that it is poising to take the HD-SLR world by storm, delivering the best photo in any environment, lighting condition, or speed.
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 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.
Google has announced a new feature of fans of Street View that allows the user to make their own personal Street View imagery. The Street View experience can be made by anyone using Google Photo Sphere tech or with a DSLR camera. The idea here is to allow the user to create their own interactive maps of their travels for friends and family to enjoy.
Calling it a "modern classic," Nikon has unveiled its new Df DSLR camera, a retro-designed FX-format shooter being targeted towards advanced photographers who need a lightweight FX-format camera. The design is built upon the foundation left by Nikon's F series 35mm film cameras from days gone by, and is accompanied by technologies akin to that of the Nikon D4 DSLR.
For many photographers, especially hobbyists, the convenience and portability of a digital camera becomes almost moot when they can't share with family and friends the memorable moments they capture when and where they happen. That is why Nikon has put out its new D5300 D-SLR camera in order to capture and share stunning photographs and videos wherever you are.
In digital photography, high quality and portability are most of the time at odds with each other, with higher quality output requiring larger equipment or numerous attachments. Sony is attempting to bridge that gap with its new RX10 digital camera that offers DSLR-style photography without needing to bring half a dozen interchangeable lenses along for the ride.
The PENTAX K-3 DSLR leaked a couple of times last month, showing off a variety of specs and a press shot. A little over a week later, the camera has officially been unveiled, with Ricoh adding a slew of information on top of what we already knew about the 24-megapixel camera, as well as a gallery of the digital SLR and some of its components and accessories.
