Panasonic's Lumix line is celebrating a whole bunch of new entries this week at CES. The FH series is expanding with two new slim additions, the DMC-FH6 and DMC-FH8. Both models do 720p video at 30 fps and rock Leica lenses and 5x optical zoom. The 16.1 megapixel FH8 has a three-inch LCD and shoots HD videos in MP4. The 14.1 megapixel F6 captures HD video in JPEG format and features a 2.
Canon'shigher-end PowerShotcameras are certainly more compelling, but they're also expensive. If you're on a budget, you might want to settle for one of these ELPHs. Canon is introducing three new models this week, including the ELPH 150 IS, 140 IS and 135 -- they're priced at $150, $130 and $120, respectively. The latter duo replace theA2600andA2500, while the 150 is a new addition to the lineup.
Stay in Style with an Ultra Compact DSLM (Digital Single Lens Mirrorless) CameraPanasonic is proud to announce the new fashionable compact line GM series to its LUMIX Digital Single Lens Mirrorless (DSLM) cameras.
To many photographers -- amateurs and professionals alike -- digital SLRs represent quality. The fact that you can remove the lens and swap it for another is inconsequential to those who never buy a second optic, and it's that segment of the market that Sony's targeting with its Cyber-shot RX10.
Leica has been making some very high quality compact digital cameras for a number of years. These cameras aren’t exactly known to be cheap, but they are known for high-quality photography. Leica has announced its latest compact digital camera called the Leica C.This compact little digital camera is designed to be stylish while taking high-quality still shots.
We’re getting a bunch of new digital cameras this week and Panasonic definitely doesn’t want to be left behind. But not only is Panasonic practically announcing a new series of premium compact cameras as part of the company’s LUMIX Digital Single Lens Mirrorless (DSLM) line, it is also unveiling the first camera in that line, the DMC-GM1.
Sony has refreshed its Cyber-shot camera range, giving one of its flagship super-zooms a brain transplant, as well as offering some entry-level point-and-shoots for those still not willing to rely solely on their smartphones. The Cyber-shot HX400V replaces last year's HX300 , combining a 20.4-megapixel CEMOS, 50x optical zoom, and new BIONZ X processor. That chip replacement, Sony claims, makes the HX400V around three times faster than its predecessor. It has a 100-12800 ISO range and up to 10fps burst shooting, as well as optical image stabilization for its f/2.8-6.3 Carl Zeiss lens.
As zoom lenses go, the Olympus Stylus SP-100EE IHS certainly puts the "super" into super-zoom. Also known as the "Eagle's Eye", the new 16-megapixel snapper's snout extends to accommodate a whopping 50x optical zoom - 24-1200mm, in fact - with Olympus even fitting a laser dot sight to make lining up your frame more straightforward when you're getting up close. Paired with the company's digital zoom, the SP-100 manages a near-ridiculous 100x magnification.
As winter begins to slowly depart here in the States, some of us here at Engadget are anxious to get outside and shoot some spring-like stills. What's that? Oh, you are too? Well, we've collected a handful of discounted camera options this time around that await on the other side of the jump. Per usual, there's a range of prices, so there should be something to suit most budgets.
Long gone are the days when digital cameras were just for still photographers. In fact, with its GH4, it's easy to argue that Panasonic is putting an even greater emphasis on video capture -- of the 4K variety, in this case. The Lumix GH4, teased as the "next GH" just last month at CES, offers tremendous advantages over its predecessor, the GH3.
This has been a busy week in photography with the unveiling several new digital cameras. Earlier this morning we mentioned that Nikon had unveiled a new D5300 DSLR. Panasonic also went official with its DMC-GM1 mirrorless digital camera.
Nikon's got a pair of baby bumps in store for us this year on the adventure cam front. The Coolpix AW120, which replaces last year'sAW110 and the S32, which serves as 2014's answer to the S31. Both are rated for underwater use, but the similarities end there. If you've got $350 to spare, the AW120 is the camera to focus on. It's waterproof to 59 feet (18 meters), shockproof to 6.
The Coolpix P340, which replaceslast year's P330and the S9700, which serves as theS9500'ssuccessor, look awfully similar to 2013's models -- in many ways, those similarities extend internally, too. The P340, which includes the same 1/1.
Sony thinks there's a market for big zooms among those with relatively small wallets, hence the Cyber-shot H400 revealed today. While it packs a 63x optical zoom - bigger even than the zoom on the Cyber-shot HX400V - Sony has opted to keep the price down with a relatively mainstream 20.1-megapixel sensor, smaller than what you'd often find on a superzoom camera. The zoom can be boosted, digitally, to up to a crazy 210x, as long as you don't mind it slipping down to just VGA quality. Thankfully there's optical image stabilization, though the 100-3200 ISO range could be a little higher. The 0.8fps burst shooting rate and 720p HD video recording are also compromises that come with the price tag, but you do get Sony's Intelligent Auto mode and Picture Effect in-camera editing. There's a 360-degree sweep panorama mode too. Sadly WiFi and NFC also fall off the spec list, so you can't use the H400 with Sony's PlayMemories app, but the more intuitive interface from the A7-series has been ported over.
Along with the WB350F compact camera , Samsung also introduced the WB2200F during CES 2014. While the former is touted as a compact camera and has a 21x optical zoom, the latter takes things up quite a bit in terms of the zoom level.
AT&T announces $199 Galaxy S4 Zoom for November 8
AT&T on Monday announced the upcoming pricing and availability of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom . Priced at $199.99 with a two-year service agreement, the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean-powered camera-centric smartphone will also be available for $25 per month with the AT&T Next program.
If you recently came upon aCoolpix P520under the Christmas tree, prepare to be mildly disappointed. That superzoom just reached early retirement, with today's P530 introduction. 2014's refresh brings along a similar f/3-5.9, 24-1,000mm (42x) optically stabilized zoom lens, a new 16.1-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor, 1080/30p and 60i video capture, a 3-inch fixed LCD and a built-in EVF.
It's tough to stand out in the mid-range Android crowd, but Oppo may have found a way to separate itself from the pack. Its newly launchedR1 smartphonecarries a gold-effect metal frame that adds a touch of class around the 5-inch screen. Camera quality may also lure in a few buyers. The R1 carries a bright 8-megapixel, f/2.
