With Nikons introduction of the D800, I have now begun to wonder if the megapixel race is still on. What will the new focus be for Canon & Nikon's base full frame cameras.
In an interesting move, Canon has brought 3 new lenses to market. While the anticipated 24-70mm f/2.8 II has been talked about for some time, the 24mm f/2.8 IS & 28mm f/2.8 IS were not.
Nikon has just announced an impressive 36MP camera boasting an unbelievable metering system, 51 point AF system, at a relatively low price point of $3,000. Unfortunately for many, the cost of this beastly sensor may be too great a loss.
Nikon has just thrown itself into the ring of mirrorless cameras with the Nikon V1 & J1 complimented by several lenses and other accessories. Both cameras have a 10MP sensor, a bit low for today's standards, 10fps shooting, 1080p video with high speed modes at reduced resolution, and a new high quality AF system.
The new S100 features Canon's new Digic 5 Sensor combined with a 12MP upgrade with a wider 24mm lens, increased zoom range, built in GPS, and more. Stay tuned for more information.
Fujifilm has just announced the X10, a better point and shoot than most of us are used to. With a 12MP sensor and f/2 lens, the camera blends nicely with some of the best point and shoots around. But that is where the X10 begins to separate from the pack.
Sony has officially made one of the most anticipated announcements of the year. The A77 has been announced as a game changer and contains one amazing spec list for the price.
From hanging off the side of cliffs to tight rope walking over a 1,000 ft drop, I simply can't imagine being involved in this project.
