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.
Panasonic has been busy introducing new products today, and among them are three new compact digital cameras: the ZS50, ZS45, and the SZ10, all of which are slim offerings designed to be used in a variety of situations -- essentially, they are everyday cameras.
If you just can't get enough ofyou, Panasonic has joined therecent parademirrorless cameras marketed at selfie photographers. TheLumix GF7's Micro Four Thirds, 16-megapixel sensor will give you much nicer shots than your smartphone ever could without being a burden to haul around.
Earlier this week Canon rolled out the red carpet for its new line of PowerShot cameras, and two among them are the tiny point-and-shoot ELPH 160 and 170 IS compacts we recently went hands-on with here at CES 2015.
Despite the growing sophistication of smartphone cameras, camera makers are relentless in coming up with ways to sell their wares to the crowd. They primarily do this by combining some professional quality features and hardware inside very portable bodies.
Here at CES 2015, we got our hands on Canon’s newest Powershot point-and-shoot cameras. their SX610 offers an 18x optical zoom via the 25-450mm lens, while the SX710 gets even more detailed with a 30x zoom from a 25-750mm lens. If you’re in need of more, the SX530 is about as good as a pocketable camera gets with 50x zoom from a 24-1200mm lens.
This year's CES 2015 is getting crowded than ever. One of the companies super busy showing off new goods is Alcatel. It's actually a surprise that the brand has a lot of new things to offer but that means more options for the Android lovers who are demanding for more affordable mid-range smartphones.
This week we've got one whole heck of a lot of Canon photography equipment being revealed, with cameras popping up from the very inexpensive to the top of the line in personal shooters. The SX410 IS comes as the successor to the SX400 HS, the PowerShot ELPH 350 HS comes as the successor to the ELPH 340 HS, and the EOS Rebel T6i comes as the latest edition of the "classic" Rebel.
Panasonic has rolled out a pair of new digital cameras that are ruggedized and aimed at the outdoors type that needs a camera that is easy to use and can survive the outdoors. The cameras are the Panasonic Lumix TS6 and the Lumix TS30 and both were unveiled this week at CES 2015 in Las Vegas. The Lumix TS6 has a 16.1MP sensor.
ASUS was gleefully teasing something special for its flagship CES 2015 smartphone, and sure enough it is, with the ASUS ZenFone Zoom squeezing in a 3x optical zoom. The new Android handset has a 5.5-inch Full HD display and runs the latest version, 5.0 Lollipop, but it's the backside which we're most intrigued by, with its 13-megapixel camera and laser auto-focus system.
Aside from producing smartphones, Japanese OEM Sony once upon a time also were pretty famous for their digital cameras. Now they’re merging the two once again as they announced the “rebirth” of their lens camera by introducing two new models: the QX30 and the E-mount QX1.
At last year's IFA in Berlin, Sony announced its first two "lens cameras," a pair of point-and-shoot cams that clip onto your smartphone. You use your phone's display to control the camera, and while you can technically fire off shots using the integrated zoom toggle and shutter release, there's no built-in LCD.
Panasonic has announced that it has a new digital camera that will finally be landing in the UK, at least in limited numbers. The camera is the DMC-CM1 and it is powered by the Android operating system. Initially the CM1 was expected to launch in France and Germany only. There was strong enough demand in the UK that Panasonic will bring a limited number of cameras to the UK starting on December 1.
IFA brings the Sony Lens Camera back to center stage this week with two new models: QX30 and QX1. These machines attach to your smartphone or tablet - or work on their own - as high-powered cameras in their own right.
One of two new Lens Cameras shown this week by Sony is the DSC-QX30, complete with a cool 30x optical zoom. This device works with 60x "Clear Image" zoom as well, sacrificing no pixels as you zoom in digitally.
Smartphone cameras are getting more sophisticated and more capable, but there are just some things that they could not reach that a dedicated diigtal camera can. Usually, this is because of design or shape constraints. After all, you wouldn't want your smartphone to look like camera, unless you actually fancy something like the Galaxy K Zoom.
When ASUS was teasing a smartphone with big badaboom camera technology for CES 2015 , they must have been referring to the ASUS ZenFone Zoom, a smartphone that carries 3x optical zoom for its main camera. Let’s see what this new shooter-with-a-phone has to offer. First up, the ASUS ZenFone Zoom has a phablet-like 5.5-inch Full HD (1080p) display running Android 5.0 out of the box.
Just because it's holiday season doesn't mean that the mobile world is at a complete standstill. Though many indeed have set their eyes on CES 2015, which is just a few weeks away, some still managed to sneak in a few surprises before the year is over. And, of course, the rumor mill is starting to heat up with stuff to expect early next year.
