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!
Panasonic last week officially launched their new Lumix DMC-GF1, its third Micro Four Thirds camera at the IFA in Berlin. Claimed to be thw world’s smallest and lightest possible DSLR camera with built in flash, the GF1 comes in three colours – red, white and black and has a retro-like thin body design that challenges that of the Olympus E-P1 “PEN”.
Sony has unveiled two very non-pricey, highly affordable point and shoot Cyber-shots with high end specs. The DSC-TX1 and DSC-WX1 are both new additions to Sony’s Cyber-shot range. Sony has blessed the TX1 and WX1 with a back-illuminated CMOS sensor, the Exmor R. If you’re wondering why the duo will have near DSLR specs, its mainly because of its sensor. Their sensors will be based on those found in Sony’s DSLRs, this promises to deliver optimal low-light performance without help from a flash or tripod – something that not many point and shoots are doing so well at the moment.
Both 10.2 megapixel TX1 and WX1 will be under the stunning budget price of $380. The $350 WX1 features the exact same G Lens, low-light optimized Exmor R CMOS sensor and Sweep Panaroma mode as seen in Sony’s $500 HX1 mega zoom camera.
SanDisk yesterday unveiled what they claim to be yet the world’s fastest SDHC cards. The latest in technology new Extreme III SDHC series will come in 4/8/16/32GB capacities and will boast speeds of up to 30MB/second! These specs will be perfect for those looking to get more involved with HD video recording but have so far been annoyed by the lack of speed when it comes to transferring large video files.
Cool animations, fast accelerometer, sharp high def images are just some of the comments given to the newly re-incarnated Zune HD so far. The most obvious competitors of Microsoft’s latest reincarnation are the iPod Touch and Sony’s recently launched X-Series. Check out the video below and let us know what you think!
Sony has announced the development of its super tiny penny-like high definition (HD) camera module. Already now entering mass production, the latest in digital technology MCB1172 8.3-megapixel camera module is astonishingly small, smaller than a £1 coin measuring in at just 9.5 x 7.1 mm. Likely to turn up in a range of products later this year, the potential for Sony’s future products to have HD recording capability is overwhelming.
The MCB1172 from Sony Europe’s Image Sensing Solutions Division will have the ability to deliver 720p, at 30fps, it further includes movie stabilisation, face detection, autofocus and motion autofocus. There’s also a high sensitivity mode and a slow-mo function, delivering 120fps as well as the option of 16x zoom.
