Sigma's latest D-SLR delivers better color and performance
For outdoor photographers, the accuracy of the color captured by a digital SLR is crucial. So a camera that promises higher color accuracy and great performance definitely piques our interest. The Sigma SD14 is a camera that delivers on those counts with the help of its innovative Foveon technology. Improved image quality with a selection of new features should prove attractive to enthusiasts and professionals alike.
An effective anti-dust system and 10.1 megapixels come to this D-SLR
I do almost all of my photography outdoors. That means lots of lens changes in the field, and that means dust on my D-SLRs’ image sensors (and my photos). Blower brushes don’t completely remove it, and though I’ve bought a clean-it-yourself kit, I haven’t quite worked up the nerve to try it yet. So one of my favorite D-SLR features is an anti-dust system.
A low-priced D-SLR with very effective built-in Shake Reduction
As one who shoots handheld almost all the time, I appreciate image stabilization. With some digital SLR brands, stabilization is available only in special stabilized lenses. But it’s currently also built into some D-SLR bodies. The lowest-priced of these by far is the new Pentax K100D.
The successor to the popular D70 boosts resolution and features
It never ceases to amaze me how much camera manufacturers are able to fit into an SLR body these days. The Nikon D80 is a thoughtful combination of controls and features that makes creating pictures a pleasurable experience.
This Digital Rebel has a high-res image sensor, anti-dust technology and a host of new features
The Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi offers more resolution, a larger LCD with a wider viewing angle and a built-in self-cleaning sensor, making it one of the most affordable and feature-loaded digital SLRs available.
Nikon provides high resolution and a host of new features in itslatest D-SLR
If you've been putting off making your transition from film to digital or you've been holding out for a suitable upgrade from your existing digital camera, the Nikon D80 is very likely the camera that you've been waiting for. At a price under $1,000, the camera offers a lot in a compact, lightweight package that’s sure to satisfy the serious and passionate photographer.
How Sony changes the playing field for the D-SLR market
Outdoor photographers have had a strong interest in digital SLRs because of their versatility and access to varied focal lengths. Plus, high megapixels provide the digital data to make large prints with lots of detail, so when Sony announced a new 10.2-megapixel D-SLR, everyone in the industry paid attention. Whatever brand D-SLR you shoot, Sony’s new entry into the market affects you as it puts a very strong camera into the competitive fray.
The new flagship D-SLR from Nikon adds a few twists to its professional workhorse
The 12.4-megapixel D-SLR features the High-Speed Crop Mode of its predecessor, which delivers a resolution of 6.8 pixels, but the new D2xs viewfinder is now automatically masked. This eliminates the need to replace the camera‚’s focusing screen and allows the photographer to switch between modes on the fly.
The Olympus EVOLT E-330 is the first D-SLR to offer a tilting TTL monitor and an optical TTL viewfinder
Anyone who knows me knows that I love the little digital cameras with the flip-out or tilting LCDs. Because these LCDs are "live" meaning they see what’s coming through the lens, they can be used as handy viewfinders for new shooting angles.
A 12.8-megapixel full-frame image sensor is at the heart of a new addition to the Canon D-SLR lineup
A full-frame SLR allows you to use your existing 35mm lenses at their native focal lengths with no lens magnification. This provides full use of your wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle lenses while creating a high-resolution digital file.
A new generation of cameras aims to maintain the high quality that medium-format shooters expect and demand
When digital technology first melded with medium-format cameras and lenses, it was in the form of mounted digital backs in place of the traditional film backs. It was a natural way to do things since so many of the medium-format cameras were modular. Many photographers will continue using it for years to come, especially because it offers an advantage of being able to use the same body and lenses for both film and digital photography.
A capable new player at the budget end of the D-SLR spectrum
The camera is compatible with the Nikon iTTL flash metering system for accurate flash exposures and the ability to use wireless auxiliary flash units. Shoot in virtually any lighting conditions by adjusting ISO sensitivity between ISO 200 and 1600. The Nikon F-mount is optimized for use with DX lenses, providing limited compatibility with older AF and MF Nikkor lenses. A five-area autofocus system features user-selectable target areas, with both focus priority and continuous focus modes.
The new 8-megapixel cameras offer tremendous versatility and impressive image quality together in one handy, lightweight package. With their wide range of built-in focal lengths and system capabilities, they’re a real alternative to lugging a heavy and expensive SLR or D-SLR system.
