This year's Consumer Electronic Show is packed with exhibitors, industry analyists and press, all eager to see, touch and talk about this years' hottest electronics. CES isn't the biggest photography show in the calendar, but it's a great place to have meetings with manufacturers, handle their new products and of course get briefed on what's coming up next (even if we can't yet tell you about it).
As well as countless meetings over the course of the week, we've also found some time to explore the show and get hands-on with the most important new releases from the major camera manufacturers. Here's a quick rundown of some of the hottest new cameras on show at this year's CES. For complete coverage of all this year's photo new releases, make sure to check out our news coverage, and for more in-depth treatment of new mobile products, head over to our sister site, connect.dpreview.com.
|Canon's PowerShot N is turning a lot of heads at this year's CES, thanks to its unique interface, which doesn't feature conventional zoom or shutter controls...||To zoom, you nudge a slim ring around the lens, and to take a shot you can 'pop' the outer ring inwards. The orientation of the camera doesn't matter - effectively there is no 'right way up'. Click here for our first impressions of this innovative point-and-shoot.|
|This is the very lovely Fujifilm X100S, which offers some significant improvements over its predecessor, the X100, including on-sensor phase-detection AF and vastly improved manual focus.||Although very similar externally to the camera it replaces, the X100S offers a subtly refined control layout. Click here for our hands-on preview.|
|And this is its baby brother, the X20. Gone is the EXR sensor of the X10, to be replaced by an X-Trans sensor capable of true 12MP resolution.||X10 owners will feel right at home though - the X20's operation is very similar to that of its predecessor. Click here for our in-depth preview.|
|Nikon was showing off its new 1 J3, a new 1 System mirrorless camera that sits below the V2 in Nikon's growing 1 System lineup.||Like the V2, the J3 has a 14MP CX sensor but lacks the flagship's enthusiast-oriented manual control points and built-in EVF.|
|The 1 S1 sits at the bottom of the 1 system lineup, and is based around the same 10MP sensor as the older J2.||The S1 offers an extremely simplified user interface, and relies upon an on-screen 'mode dial' for feature selection.|
|Panasonic has been busy refreshing its compact cameras, and the higher-end models, such as this ZS30 offer Near Field Communication - a simple method for establishing a Wi-Fi connection by simply placing the two devices close to one another.||The ZS30 offers 18MP resolution and a 20X zoom lens, covering 24-480mm (equivalent).|
|This is Pentax's new MX-1 - a high-end compact camera named after the famous 35mm MX SLR from the 1970s.||Offering very similar photographic specifications to the Olympus XZ-2, we previewed the 12MP MX-1 earlier this week.|
|Polaroid surprised us at CES with semi-functional mockups of three new interchangeable lens cameras. They may look reminiscent of other models on the market, but the twist is that the sensors are built in to the lenses.||This is the iM1232W, which runs a conventional camera operating system, but the co-announced iM1836 runs a version of the Android OS. Click here for more coverage.|
|The NX300 is Samsung's newest NX model, and offers a raft of improvements over its predecessor including on-sensor phase-detection AF and a touch-sensitive screen.||
The NX300's OLED screen is tiltable, too. Click here to read our first impressions of the new model.
|Sigma expanded its DP range of compact digital cameras at this years' CES, with the DP3 Merrill.||The DP3 features the same Foveon sensor as the SD1 Merrill paired with a fixed 75mm (equivalent) lens.|
|Sigma was also showing off its upcoming USB dock, which connects to its new lenses and allows you to reprogram their firmware via a computer application.||Here, the dock is attached to the new 120-300mm F2.8 DG OS HSM, and firmware customization options include focus limiting and AF adjustment at all focal lengths.|
