It’s been just over two years since Canon first announced they were developing a 200-400mm lens with a built-in 1.4x extender and after a few stops and starts, it’s now been officially launched. I was fortunate to get a hands-on preview at Canon HQ – it’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it!
This morning Canon have launched not one, but two new EOS cameras: the 100D, which is the world’s smallest and lightest DSLR as well as the new entry-to-mid level range 700D.
This week I took the annual trip to Birmingham to have a sneak peek at all the manufacturers have to offer at the UK’s largest Photography Show – Focus on Imaging. Here’s a round up of some of my favourites, in no particular order…
It’s been a fairly quiet 2013 so far when it comes to camera announcements, but Nikon have thrown down the gauntlet with the announcement of the D7100 this morning, their new flagship DX-sensor DSLR that boasts some pretty interesting new features.
This morning Nikon announced another DSLR camera for 2012: the D5200, which adds to their consumer range of DX-models. This isn’t just a camera for beginners though – with a 24.1 megapixel DX-format sensor and improved autofocus capability, it’s another impressive addition to an already exciting Nikon DSLR range.
Nikon introduces the D600 to their FX line-up this morning, offering full-frame shooting for serious enthusiasts at a more affordable price and we were lucky enough to get some hands-on time yesterday before its launch. Will it be a game changer?
This morning we see Sony launch their much-anticipated flagship Alpha DSLT model, the A99 as well as three other exciting products: the Sony RX1 full frame compact (yes, you read the right), the Sony VG900 Camcorder (also with a full frame sensor) and the NEX-6 compact system camera.
This morning Canon have launched the brand new interchangeable lens camera: the EOS M. I’ll be at Canon HQ later this morning spending some time talking to Canon and having a play with the EOS M, so keep checking back here throughout the day for updates.
Bright and early this morning Canon introduced a new beginners-level DSLR to their EOS range, the 650D, as well as 2 new lenses to their line-up – the EF 40mm f2.8 pancake lens and an EF-S 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 IS lens.
Replacing the older A35 model, the new Alpha A37 is Sony’s entry-level offering in their range of SLT cameras equipped with their revolutionary Translucent Mirror Technology. The NEX-F3 is the new entry-level model in Sony’s ever-popular ILC (Interchangeable Lens Camera) range and like the A37, it’s replacing an older camera too – in this case it’s the NEX-C3.
