On article Nikon Coolpix P340 real-world samples gallery (37 comments in total)

In an age where the need to share photographs instantly is becoming a rage, on board Wi-Fi is a must-have feature on an advanced point and shoot. Nikon Coolpix P340 is an upgrade of the Nikon P330, with the addition of Wi-Fi being the major change.

Build and Design
Nikon P340 is literally a palm-sized camera in an all-black metallic magnesium alloy body. Despite the compact size Nikon has ensured that there is provision for a palm rest and thumb rest.

Nikon 1 V3 - Nikon launches 18.4MP mirrorless camera

Nikon’s third-generation Nikon 1 V-series mirrorless camera is here. The shooter features an 18.4MP AF CMOS sensor with no low-pass filters. This one is a decent upgrade from the V2, which sported a 14.2MP sensor. Additionally, the V3 also sports Expeed 4A image-processing engine and an ability to shoot up to 20 frames per second when in auto-focus mode and 60 frames per second when in fixed focus.

A Camera For Everyone? The Canon Rebel T3i

You all know that we here at The Imaging Resource love cameras, and every manufacturer has at least a few true gems out there for all of us to fall for. But every now and then a camera seems to transcend time and the current market and, well, simply stays current long after being past its proverbial prime.

It beats the Olympus E-M1, the Sony A58 and the sleek little Canon SL1. It has twice as many landing page views as the Canon T5i, two generations newer down the line.

On article Nikon launches 55-300mm F4.5-5.6 G ED VR lens (3 comments in total)

The Nikkor 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G DX lens was a bit of a surprise when it was announced, as Nikon already had two very good telephoto zooms that appealed to DX body users (55-200mm DX and 70-300mm VR). Why Nikon was revisiting the low-cost telephoto space before filling out other DX options had a lot of Nikon users puzzled. Still, with two low-cost cameras (D3100, D5100) in the lineup, having low-cost lenses for them seems like the right thing to me. The question at hand is whether this was the right addition to the low cost lineup.

Canon t3i 600D

This new piece of kit is very similar but quite a few dollars cheaper. The specs are similarly very close, with one exceptional difference: the new baby is 240 grams lighter in weight, made from stainless steel and polycarbonate resin with glass fibre. Which says a lot: pros like cameras with a dab of weight while the amateur fraternity goes kinky for models that don’t lower the shoulders.

On article Canon announces EOS M2 in Japan (616 comments in total)

The EOS M2 includes Hybrid CMOS AF II, an updated autofocus system that Canon said is faster than the M's system. It also gets Wi-Fi support, but the sensor is still an 18-megapixel model that tops out at ISO 12,800, or 25,600 if you enable its higher-noise expanded range. The new camera is also 8% smaller than its predecessor, with built-in Wi-Fi, and a redesigned mode dial.

On article First Impressions Review: Using the Canon PowerShot G16 (354 comments in total)

The Canon G series of cameras has sat at the top of the compact pile for several years and there are signs that Canon is taking its customers for granted. The phone app is not worth the effort of installation. The lack of a swivelling LCD is odd for a top compact. The G16 is a good camera, but not the category killer the G once was.

On article Canon EF 17 - 40 mm F4.0 L lens (1 comment in total)

The walkaround lens. This very topic leads to a heated discussion among DSLR photographers.

First, determine your budget, focal length, and aperture needs.

If you frequently find yourself zooming out to get everything in a frame, you will want a wide angle lens such as this. If you frequently find yourself zooming in, this is not the lens for you. On a full frame body such as Canon EOS 5D, this lens becomes ULTRA wide angle. On an APS-C crop body such as Digital Rebel XTi (which I used for this review), it becomes MEDIUM wide angle. But thanks to 1.6x crop factor, this lens expands to more usable 35mm equivalent focal length of 27 to 64mm.

Nikon 35mm f/1.4G AF-S FX SWM Nikkor Lens
I'm a wedding photographer who shoots in dark conditions often. This lens performs great in these conditions. I use this lens on a D3 body and the AF is good. It doesn't seem to be as fast at my zooms (24-70 2.8 or 70-200 2.8) but it's still pretty accurate when focusing in low light. The image quality is AMAZING. Certainly an upgrade from the older 35 f/2 version . Images has more contrast & are sharper. I also own the 24 1.4 G and I would say that the IQ on the 35 is about the same. Over all, I'm very impressed and satisfied with this 35

I think how you feel about this camera is really going to depend on where you're coming from. If you're a DSLR shooter and are looking for a portable body you're likely going to be frustrated by the lack of control points on this camera.

On the other hand, for those upgrading from a point and shoot camera like myself, this camera can be ideal. I came from a Canon S90, which I purchased a couple of years ago looking for a camera that does a better job in low light than the typical point and shoot. The S95 was definitely a step up from what I had before, but more recently I've become frustrated with the limitations of the sensor and was also interested in exploring the world of interchangeable lenses.

On article Just Posted: Canon EOS 5D Mark III review (706 comments in total)

The advantages move way beyond the ability to shoot on your SLR - the wealth of high-speed lenses and shooting accessories that make EOS photography so remarkable can be used in shooting video. Where interchangeable lens video cameras cost thousands of dollars, with the EOS 5D Mark II their operation, including HDMI output, is simply an added bonus to a remarkable camera.

The EOS 5D Mark II has a sophisticated AF system consisting of 9 user-selectable AF points, along with a total of 6 additional vertical and horizontal AF assist points. With Live View Function on the EOS 5D Mark II, you can zoom in and navigate the composition 5x or 10x normal size.

this camera. It was not difficult to learn, although the user's manual could be more user friendly. This is a great camera and I have been very pleased with the quality of the images. Far from a professional, but I have never taken such beautiful pictures in my life. Love it!

On article Just Posted: In-depth Nikon D800 review (541 comments in total)

I Think.

Pros:
+ Resolution: Beautiful detail, just make sure that your lenses are up to the task.
review Yosemite" to see real life comparisons.
+ Color: Adobe profiles are horrible, create custom profiles using a MacBeth chart with Adobe DNG profiler and the colors will amaze.
+ AutoWB: Excellent, much better than the D3/D700.
+ Low ISO: Having a true 100 ISO is godsend for on-location lighting setups.

Cons:
- Software: Nikon software can produce excellent results, but it is clunky and slow.
- Handling: The mode selector button is awkwardly placed. I prefer the D7000 U1/U2 style custom banks.
- JPEG: Nikon has the worst jpeg engine; competitors like Fuji, Olympus, Panasonic, Pentax, and Canon put Nikon to shame. Although I would never shoot JPG, there are those that do, and this camera will let them down.

On article Pentax K-01 Hands-on Preview (376 comments in total)

I really enjoy this camera.

I owned a K-r for a short period of time before I sold it for this and I don't have buyer's remorse for doing it.

Things I like:
-The thing isn't plastic. And it doesn't feel it.
-The picture quality in RAW...
-The controls are simple.
-Because it is designed for a screen, live view can be used all the time and not drain the battery quickly like it did on the K-r. That is of course if you like the live view.
-When you put on the kit lens this camera takes up the same space as a 4/3rds. Most times you carry a camera around and want to take quick shots you don't need a zoom anyways. It is a slightly genius maneuver to make the lens smaller as that is what half the size of the 4/3rds cameras are, the lens.

Pros:
- LCD has great color and viewing angles
- Light
- Stereo video
- Hotshoe
- Responsive touchscreen
- Snappy startup
- Dedicated movie button
- Automatic image rotate
- Flash is mechanically released; you can tilt it up for ceiling flash shots, which is nice

Cons:
- Menus a bit confusing
- Lens is huge (this is excusable)

On article First Impressions: Using the Nikon D800 (307 comments in total)

Resolution:
Easy winner. Nikon's RAW files are more detailed, almost 3D like. I can't really explain it other than the pictures look more real. I can crop a photo to 1/3 it's size (12 megapixels) and it still looks stunning. I wonder how much better the D800e version is. I'll have to wait until my friend receives his to find out.

Autofocus:
About the same. Canon and Nikon have awesomely quick autofocus and I couldn't determine a difference. The only caveat is that Nikon focuses better in lowlight (without the autofocus assist lamp) and also the Nikon focuses when there is almost no light (with the autofocus assist lamp). Why the heck doesn't Canon include an autofocus assist lamp is beyond me. Also, Nikon's face detection is extremely useful because it focuses right on the eyeballs.

Flash:
Easy winner. Canon doesn't have built in flash. Nikon flash worked surprisingly well.

On article Canon launches EOS 60Da DSLR for astrophotography (229 comments in total)

Fast shooting speed almost 6 fps is very good, and thought 3 fps was good. (I also like the 2 settings for shooting speed, normal and high speed)
Built in Wireless flash control. I also bought the 430EX II, and 3 button pushes later I had the speed light firing while it sat off camera behind the subject, and that is very cool
Great Canon Software (I use a Mac, and I love the USB interface software, you can completely control the camera from your computer
Custom Shooting mode - Exact what it sounds like, its nice touch
The flip out rotating screen is very sharp, probably one of the best I've seen on a DSLR. I don't shoot much live view though.
It uses SD, only because I had plenty of SD cards from my last two devices.

- Thumbwheel is a bit stiff
- Flash does not extend high enough to avoid 14-42mm lens; ergo, some shadow appears from the lens
- Flash power is okay
- Camera strap is generic and uncomfortable; plan on getting a better one
- Some special color effects inhibit speed (only the really fancy ones, though)

On article Just Posted: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150 Review (73 comments in total)

Right out of the box, I was not disappointed. The FZ150 is smaller than my FZ30, yet still feels very comfortable and secure in the hand. All the buttons seem to be in the right place. (The G3 was not designed well and I kept hitting a button I didn't want to press when I held the camera.)The FZ150 also takes great, natural-looking pictures indoors (which was what I was looking for) without a flash. It also takes wonderful macro images, which the G3 had a very difficult time doing. The G3 wouldn't even TAKE the picture if it wasn't in focus. The FZ150 focuses quickly and accurately.

The video looks great, as well. The only drawback is the format of MP4. It does not import in Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0 without first being converted to an avi or mov file, but that seems to be the trend in all newer cameras, so I won't fault the FZ150 there.
