Leica M9: the world's smallest full-frame system camera

0

Leica revealed, today, the M9 –  a full-frame digital rangefinder camera with a Kodak-developed CCD sensor.  The 24 x 36mm, 18 megapixel sensor features improved offset microlenses to optimize performance at the edges of the frame along with a sensor cover with improved filtering of infrared light so lens-mounted IR filters are no longer needed. Featuring the Leica viewfinder / rangefinder system, the camera’s high-resolution, full-format image sensor fully exploits the performance of the complete Leica M system lenses. The one-piece full-metal housing is made of a high-strength magnesium alloy, combined with a solid brass top and bottom plate that…

0

On Friday, Sept. 11, Vistek is offering you the opportunity to get an advance look at the new Leica S2 – part of the digital S-System that’s perfect for professional use – BEFORE it officially launches worldwide. With 37.5 million pixels on a 30x45mm surface, the Leica S2 sensor is actually 60% larger than full-frame 35mm – as large as some medium format sensors. And there’s much more.

0

Full frame shooting and HD movie capability, anyone? With the launch of its successor to the EOS 5D, the Canon EOS 5D Mark II gives us the world’s first compact full frame digital SLR.  Not only does it boast a 21-megapixel CMOS sensor & DIGIC IV processor along with an expanded ISO range of 50-25,600, the EOS 5D Mark II supports Live View shooting & full 1080p HD video capture at 1920 x 1080 resolution for up to 4GB per clip with HDMI output for HD viewing of stills and video. Add to that a sweet 3.0″ Clear View LCD…

Nikon D90

0

Well, it’s been 2 years since Nikon gave us the D80. And now… amidst much speculation and rumour, along comes the Nikon D90.  This is a camera that will appeal to everyone, from the first-time DSLR user to the serious amateur wanting more in-depth photographic control but without the cost and weight of a D300. While the D90 seems to have some nifty new bells & whistles, it’s more of an update than a full-on replacement. The most exciting and talked about bell (or whistle, depending on how you view these things) is the fact that it’s the world’s first…

Canon EOS 50D

0

Not to be left behind, Canon has presented to the masses it’s replacement to the EOS 40D… the EOS 50D (didn’t see that coming, did you?) Mainly targeted against the Nikon D300, the EOS 50D holds quite a few significant improvements over the 40D. For starters, it features a 15.1 megapixel CMOS sensor, as well as a faster DIGIC 4 processor. It has an ISO sensitivity that’s expandable to 12800 as well as a 3″ VGA LCD monitor with a Live View mode that offers 3 AF modes. And since we’re on the subject of the LCD – this one…

The PowerShot D10 – Canon’s first digital waterproof camera.

4

In addition to its 12.1-megapixel sensor & 3x optical zoom, the PowerShot D10 is waterproof up to 33 feet, cold resistant to -10°C (14°F) and shockproof up to 4 feet (I still wouldn’t recommended dropping it from a glacier face). This little gem sounds like the perfect vacation accessory – regardless of where your passport takes you. The blue faceplate can be changed for one of three replacement front covers that come in orange, gray or a funky camo print. There’s even a handy dandy carabiner strap so you can be hands-free when the occasion calls for it. But this…

0

At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Canon had a new lineup of camcorders to unveil and, with 5 new High Def  & 5 Standard Def camcorders set to hit the market, they’re making sure they’ve covered all their bases for 2009. In addition to Canon’s core imaging technologies, these newest to the family include some new features for enhanced image quality and added flexibility. A new image processor (DIGIC DV III) is featured in select VIXIA models along with 8.0 Megapixel photo capture, Video Snapshot Mode, Genuine Canon Face Detection Technology, and an advanced Auto Exposure system round out…

60 Megapixels at your fingertips: Phase One’s P65+

0

No, that’s not a typo. This bad boy really sports 60 Megapixels (60.5, to be exact). It hasn’t hit the shelves yet (late 2008 is what’s been announced), but the new P65+ from Phase one will be the first full frame 645 medium format camera system and digital back. The P65+ has a sensor measuring 40.4 X 53.9mm, which means 20% greater coverage than some previously announced full frames – which, as it turned out, were still sporting a 36 x 48mm sensor. This means 20% higher resolution for the same pixel density, and the ability to utilize existing and…
