The D3100 is the latest addition to Nikon’s Digital SLR camera line. It’s an upgrade to last year’s D3000; it’s about the same weight and size, but adds full 1080p high-definition video with continuous auto focus. Other improvements are a new sensor, an expanded ISO range, and an option for a quieter shutter release. The in-camera help guide, displayed on a 3″ LCD screen, has been expanded with more tips and suggested settings. Buttons have been added to the camera to make it easier to switch between possible usage modes, and the lenses have been designed to capture high contrast at maximum aperture. The 14.2 megapixel D3100 is intended for beginner and intermediate point-and-shoot camera users who are about to buy their first Digital SLR.Tweet
Sony’s flagship camera brand, the Cybershot, has a new member to its ever growing family of products. The Cybershot TX9 camera introduces 3D photography to the masses. Surprisingly affordable, the Cybershot TX9 provides all of the amazing panoramic views that previous models have included, now with the ability to be displayed in stunning 3D images.
The 3D is recorded by photographing individual images for the left eye and the right eye. Images will seem to pop right out of the screen at the viewer. Although other 3D cameras exist, the Cybershot TX9 3D camera is one of the most affordable on the market and represents a new world of widely available 3D photography.
Unfortunately, the TX9 also requires a 3D television set to make any use of the 3D function. Playback on the camera itself will lack a suitable 3D mode. 3D television sets are still very expensive and it will take some time before they are more widely adopted. Still, for those who are on the cutting edge of technology this is both an affordable and functional 3D camera.
In addition to the 3D tools, the TX9 Cybershot has all of the quality features consumers expect from a Sony camera. The 12.2 megapixel photographs are clear and detailed and the interface is easy to use even for beginners. The auto-adjustment tools will help even amateurs produce professional quality pictures.
Whether you’re looking for a top of the line 3D camera or just a great new tool for taking regular pictures, the Cybershot TX9 is one of the best tools available for purchase.Tweet
The NEX-5 is Sony’s first foray into the new market of small, mirror less cameras with interchangeable lenses. This innovation means you get the quality of traditional cameras with a size that even digital cameras cannot compete with. Although it may look strange at first – its large lens sticking off a palm-sized camera – the quality of the picture and video produced by this camera is striking.
The cameras view screen is 3 inches wide and has very high resolution. It can also be tilted at 80 degrees and 45 degrees in order to adjust to your shooting. The video recording aspect of this tiny camera is indeed a step above what many digital camera users are used to. The 1080i AVCHD video produced by the NEX-5 is crystal clear and captures detail as well as the 14 megapixel photos this camera also produces. The anti-motion-blur, long range shooting, and twilight modes deliver incredible pictures and video under any circumstances.
The panorama mode boasts an impressive 226 degree horizontal panorama range and a 151 degree vertical range. There is even an intriguing upgrade in the works to create the first 3D panorama pictures that can be viewed on the new Bravia 3D television sets to be released in the next few years.
As for storage and battery power, the NEX-5 does not disappoint. You can get approximately 330 shots per battery charge. The NEX-5 supports the most major storage formats through its dual slots. The NEX-5 is indeed an impressive, versatile, and compact camera that is sure to meet the needs of even the most demanding professional photographer.Tweet
