Its been made official, not very long after we spoke about the rumored specs of a new Nikon DSLR flagship, the D3s has been confirmed to arrive this November. So what’s new in the latest D3s? The most stunning new piece of hardware in this badboy is a redesigned sensor which allows it to shoot up to ISO 102,400 – the D3s will certainly not suffer from any nightblindness!

On August 31, 2009, in Digital Cameras, by KLS

Last week Sony announced the launch of their next in the line Alpha series DSLR cameras, the Alpha 500 and 550 (see the press release after the break). To be out from the end of October this year, the DSLR-A550 and DSLR-A500 digital SLRs are based around new CMOS sensors with added manual focus confirmation live view mode using the main imaging sensor, in addition to Sony’s secondary-sensor Quick AF live view system.

Both cameras feature Sony’s better noise reduction, include an Auto HDR mode and offer sensitivity of up to ISO 12800. The 14.2 MP A550 features a higher resolution 921k dot 3″ tilt-angle LCD, while the 12.3 MP A500 comes with a 230k dot resolution 3″tilt-angle LCD.The pictures below are the first hands on photos taken with the Alpha 500 by the folks over at Pocket Lint.

The new Philips Xenium X830 is one of those phones where you would be completely amazed at what it can offer in large print but then in the small print you’d find out that it actually boasts multiple flaws. We must admit this new upcoming Xenium X830 flagship does look fab, a nice three inch TFT touchscreen display with five megapixel camera and autofocus to start off with. Its main feature is of course a battery that will last you 1.5 months until your next charge if you just leave it on standby but what it lacks is often unrealised until we take a look at its full specs.
