Samsung is not content with leading the Smartphone race and is now burning its midnight oil to make a mark with its camera lineup. Samsung is not waiting for the CES to unveil its camera lineup. The Company has just unveiled its Galaxy Camera 2 and NX30, both of which are based around the NFC- “Tag & Go” sharing feature. Users will be able to tap their phone against either shooter to begin transferring photos. The devices also afford better control through the refurbished Remote Viewfinder mobile apps that show the same settings you’d find on the cameras themselves.

Galaxy Camera 2

The refurbishment done on each model varies greatly. The Galaxy Camera 2 which is based on the Android platform still features 16-megapixel sensor, 21x zoom lens and 4.8-inch LCD, much akin to its predecessors. However it features better battery capacity of 2000mAh and the weight is now done to  9.2 ounces. Other upgrades include the .6GHz quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM, and an update to Android 4.3. The Android 4.3 brings along with it slow-motion video as well as independent autoexposure and autofocus controls.

Samsung-NX20-(3)

NX30 builds further on the NX20 model with significant upgrades to image quality and the display. Based on the mirrorless design the cam boasts a more light-sensitive 20.3-megapixel sensor and a fast hybrid auto focusing system that takes just 80millisecond to find its subject.

Additionally, the NX30features a much brighter Super AMOLED based touchscreen which not only swivel but also tilt. There is also a provision of a new 3.5mm microphone input. The lens is also pretty high class and includes a quiet f2-2.8 lens and a video-friendly, f3.5-5.6 power zoom unit. Samsun has not spilled the details of the launch details for either the NX30 or the Galaxy Camera 2, but we will be tracking this news and bring the latest on this developing story, so keep connected to this spot.

When Canon launched its first ever mirror less interchangeable lens camera last year, the EOS M, with its stylish design and awesome image quality, its focusing speed left some expectations disappointed. As a reply to those disappointed expectations, the Japanese company is back to redefine its earlier venture with the all-improved EOS M2.

As the very name suggests, the latest model inherits the concept model of EOS M, with its small-size, light-weight feature, along with optimum picture quality. However, the area where the new EOS M2 has improved significantly is in its AF performance. Slated for release in a few weeks from now, the Canon EOS M2 claims an auto-focus speed 2.3times faster than EOS M. Thanks to its Hybrid CMOS AF II system, the focus window is expanded up to 80% of the viewfinder, thereby, making it double the size of the area on its older avatar.

Furthermore, while EOS M2 has retained the built-in APS-C sensor of its predecessor, the ILC has definitely made a marked improvement to resolve its earlier issue of blacked-out screen, frequently occurring with EOS M.

Besides, this time Canon has also packed in Wi-Fi connectivity for wireless transferring and sharing of photographs. So now, users can not just have the pleasure of taking some wonderful snaps with great ease and comfort, but they can also easily and instantly share the clicked photographs with their family and friends.

This all-improved, faster and better Canon EOS M2 will hit the market in December with a lens kit at 84,800 yen (roughly $820). If you intend to go only with the body and skip the lens, then it would cost you 64,800 yen, which will be around $627. But as of now, any news or information regarding the place or country where the Canon ILC would head after its release in Japan is still unknown. But we will let you know as soon as we get even the slightest news of it.

CANON EOS 1100D

If we talk about budget cameras, then one of the first names that come to mind is Canon EOS 1100D, also known as Rebel T3 in few territories. It is probably the cheapest DSLR available in the market at present, costing around $400 inclusive of 18-55mm kit lens. It seems like Canon has come up with this new camera some two and a half years after its 1000D (Rebel XS), in order to beat the competition against Nikon D3100 and Sony’s prominent range of Alpha DSLRs. The new camera has upgraded itself from its predecessor’s 10.1MP CMOS sensor to 12.2MP capacity. It has also updated itself two points in the autofocus (AF) department, with 9-point system as compared to the 7-point system of Rebel XS.

In addition, the single f/5.6 sensitivity cross-type sensor featured at the center augments the sensitivity when shooting in both landscape and portrait mode. The camera has the basic 2.7-inch, 230k-dot LCD screen with real-time screen preview and 720p HD movie recording. This camera is ideal for novices offering a simplified graphic user interface especially designed keeping them in mind. And along with all that, it has a decent ISO span of ISO 100-6400.

2. PENTAX K-30

PENTAX K-30

The new Pentax K-30 draws quite a few features from its K-01, including 3-inch LCD screen with an excellent 921K-dot resolution, and the much applauded 16.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor which enables the camera to capture the minutest of details. It also retains the ISO range of K-01 with ISO 100-12800 (expandable to 25,600). However, the Pentax K-30 uses an optimized Prime M image processing engine for full 1080p HD video recording at 30, 25 and 24 fps, uninterrupted live view, low chromatic noise as well as minimum energy consumption. It has an impressive 6fps burst rate, making it faster than Nikon D3200 (4fps) and Canon 650D (5fps).

A few of the advanced features of Pentax K-30 include, SAFOX 11-point phase-detection autofocus system, the optical components like diffraction lens which improves autofocus sensitivity even in low-light situations, as well as the pentaprism viewfinder for perfect optical view for flawless framing. And its weather sealing facility makes it a preferable choice for users wanting to practice photography undisturbed of the weather conditions. And this formidable camera with all these great features comes at around $630.

3. CANON EOS 650D

CANON EOS 650D

The Canon EOS 650D is the world’s first touchscreen DSLR, with 18MP CMOS sensor. However, its main upgrading lies in the fact that the sensor uses its extreme central pixels for phase detection autofocus in addition to the standard contrast detection autofocus. This Hybrid CMOD AF contributes to an improved focusing in both live and video modes. However, only contrast detection AF is used when the subject is positioned beyond the central area.  The 9-point autofocus system of the cross-type variety is sensitive to f/5.6 except for the central point for which the sensitivity extends to f/2.8. The Canon EOS 650D is powered by DIGIC 5 processor and has an ISO span of 100-12,800 (expandable to ISO 25,600). The camera boasts of full 1080p HD video recording at 29.97, 25 and 23.976 fps; as well as 720p footage at 59.94 and 50 fps. While the two microphones on the top-plate enable stereo sound, the wind-cut filter as well as the attenuator is designed to avoid unwanted sound disturbances.

The good news for the action photographers is that the new Canon EOS 650D has an enhanced burst rate of 5fps, compared to the unimpressive 3.7fps of the 600D model. The novel features include the Multi Shot Noise Reduction option combing four images into one for noise reduction and the Handheld Night Scene mode for blur reduction. In short, this DSLR is an all-rounder and a complete value-for-money product. And this product is priced at around $685.

4. NIKON D3200

The new Nikon D3200 comes with impressive specifications, and can be easily deemed as a perfect entry-level DSLR. It upgrades itself dramatically from 14.2MP D3100 to 24.2MP CMOS sensor, thereby offering one of the highest pixel counts on an APS-C DSLR. This 3-inch screened DSLR is also ahead of its predecessor featuring 921k-dots compared to D3100’s 230k-dots. The camera is powered by EXPEED-3 image processing engine, and has an ISO range of 100-6400 (expandable to 12,800 if necessary). It has a good burst rate of 4fps, along with a 11-point multi-CAM 1000 autofocus unit. Regarding the autofocus, it’s important to note that Nikon D3200 features the auto-area AF and 3D tracking along with single-point AF and dynamic-area AF.

The 3D tracking enables intelligent tracking of the subject from one AF point to another while moving, making use of the color as well as information from the camera’s 420-pixel RGB sensor. The Guide mode, along with a host of in-camera Effects like Monochrome, Sketch, Miniature, etc. as well as the Retouch menu are not just excellent for better output, but also help novices explore their photographic talents. Despite the fact that it costs a bit higher at $700, the impressive resolution, and the easy-to-shoot features might definitely draw new photographers towards this product.

5. SONY ALPHA SLT A58

Talking about DSLRs and not including Sony in the list is impossible, right? Well, here comes Sony’s Alpha SLT A58 as one of the best entry-level DSLRs in our list. This new DSLR sees the unification of the previous two models, viz. Sony A37 and A57. However, the biggest upgrade of this camera has been its sensors. Instead of the 16.1MP Exmor APS HD CMOS of the earlier A57 model, this new DSLR boasts a remarkable 20.1 megapixel APS HD CMOS. This, combined with an ISO range of 100-16000, along with the BIONZ image processing engine which separately adjusts noise-reduction levels and sharpness in different image areas, makes this camera a good bet.

One of the most unique features of Sony DSLRs have been the use of Single Lens Translucent (SLT) technology instead of the usual pentaprism found in almost all DSLRs. This technology enables the autofocus to remain in action even when the shot is clicked. And this adds to a better burst rate as well, shooting at a healthy rate of 8fps. Sony’s Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) with a 1.44m dot resolution uses OLED Tru-Finder technology instead of LCD, thereby bringing down the overall power consumption. Now talking about the autofocus technology, Sony Alpha SLT A58 features the 15-point AF system, with three points being of the more sensitive cross-type variant. It also uses the Lock-on autofocus technology for speedier, more accurate tracking of the subject. Some of the interesting features of A58 include Auto Object framing Technology that judges the scene composition prior to tracking, framing or cropping the shot, the Tele Zoom Continuous Advance Priority AE mode, and as many as 15 artistic in-camera effects that can be easily applied for shot enhancements.

Given the tough competition from the DSLRs mentioned above, Sony’s Alpha SLT A58 may find itself falling a little short; nevertheless, this DSLR is capable of producing some amazing photographs and shoot some great videos with its full 1080p HD movie maker, for which photography-lovers may be willing to shell out around $590 which is inclusive of 18-55 mm lens.

Nikon D610

It was rumored way back in August that Nikon will release a couple of new cameras and the Nikon D610 was also touted to be released. The Nikon D610 was considered to be an upgrade of Nikon D600 and the device is expected to be released on the 7th-8th of October.

However the D610 will not be having any large scale upgrades in the hardware segment but instead will only feature a slight upgrade over its predecessors. One new feature which is seen for the first time is the continuous shooting speed which is said to be set at 6fps. The earlier version of the Nikon D600 had a shooting speed of 5.5 fps.

The other specifications include includes a 24.3MP sensor with an ISO range of 100-6,400. It also features a 39-point AF system along with 100% viewfinder coverage. Additionally the D610 has full HD Video recording capabilities along with a 3.2” LCD display but will not feature WiFi or GPS capabilities and this is a pity since both these features are fairly common in most of the present day cameras.

However we should take the rumors with a grain of salt since there has not been any confirmation from the manufacturer. The release is scheduled after two weeks so it is a small wait before everything becomes clear.

Till now the most recent camera announcement and rumors have come from the Sony Camp but it seems that Nikon is not going to take all this lying down and has a number of devices up its sleeves. The D610 camera has been readied in haste to take care of the D600?s sensor speck issue by replacing the camera all together.

The rumors also point out that there are two bodies on the way –the D610 and also the D5300. Both the cameras are not major upgrades of its predecessors and can be termed as minor upgrades only.

Sony has in its inventory some really cool cameras which has enamored the experts as well as novice who are taking their first tentative step into the world of professional photography. Sony’s lineup was missing an entry level DSLR and this lacuna has been filled by Sony with its Sony Alpha A3000.

Sony has generally stayed away from making the entry level DSLR cameras altogether. The latest Sony Alpha A3000 is also a wee bit different from the earlier versions of DSLR since it features what Sony calls ‘translucent mirror’ which does not flip when the user is taking the picture like in the conventional DSLR cameras. The new Alpha A3000 SLT camera also does not feature the ‘through-the-lens’ optical view finders. So the final product gives the user the ability to shoot and so also to focus incredibly fast.

The Sony Alpha A3000 is not an unadulterated version of DSLR nor is it a translucent-mirror camera. In earnest, it is a, DSLR-shaped addition to Sony’s NEX mirror less-camera line-up. It aptly fills up the gap in the low end in the Alpha line up.

The Alpha A3000 carries a price tag of $400 inclusive of its kit lens. The nearest low end camera with this capability happens to be the Cyber-shot RX100 which carries a price tag of $600.  It is more economical in almost all cameras in its genre and capabilities, like the Canon EOS Rebel T3 ($450), Nikon D3100 ($550), and Nikon D3200 ($700). The absence of any mirror makes it one of the smallest cameras and is tinier than the Canon’s minuscule EOS Rebel SL1 ($800).

Alpha A3000 features a 20-megapixel APS-C sensor, and also has a fair sprinkling of user friendly features which will be very useful for a beginner. It also features-

  • A range of Instagram-like filters
  • Motion-Panorama mode
  • In built Flash
  • LiveView AF system
  • Simplified and user friendly Menu System

Talking about the downside of the device, the most annoying is the non-adjustable, non-touchscreen 3-inch LCD. Also the 3.5fps burst mode at full resolution with focus locked at the first frame is far behind the 10fps speed which is featured in other translucent-mirror cameras from Sony.  Still the camera is good for the price it commands. It can effortlessly shoot 1920-by-1080 video at 60i and 24p in AVCHD mode and 1440-by-1080 or 640-by-480 video at 30p in MP4 mode. The camera will be available form September

Tamron, Japan the optical equipment manufacturer that has come up with full-frame and APS-C format sensors for the digital SLR cameras, has yet again made a move by adding its lenses with VC (vibration compensation) technology to lens profile for aberration correction.

Aberration is a type of distortion in which a lens fails to focus all colors to the same convergence point. It occurs because lenses have a different refractive index for different wavelengths of light. Aberration correction is currently offered by products of Adobe Systems Incorporated, namely Adobe Photoshop CS6, Camera Raw (Photoshop’s raw image plug-in) and the photo management software Photoshop Lightroom 4.

This update of lens profile allows the owners of SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC USD (Model A009) for Nikon mount and the SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD (Model F004) for Nikon mount and the SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di USD (Model A007) for Sony mount to use the above mentioned software from Adobe Systems Incorporation and make corrections regarding achromatism or aberration in the image.

pic_a005_02

Basically the software are designed to work on “fringes of colors” along the boundaries separating the dark and lit up parts of an image.

Pros at a Glance

  • It gives the photographer a chance to illuminate the image by making corrections
  • It removes the possible blur from even the black and white pictures where colors is not an issue.
  • Listing in lens profile for aberration control takes these lenses closer to a professional-grade
  • Works with Photoshop’s raw image plug-in Camera Raw, no need to shell out huge bills for new software.
  • The USD, VC and now the aberration correction added up make it a delight.
  • Too heavy for to carry for the level of Macro shoots the lenses give, with the detachable tripod mount attached.
  • Too much work upon the image may lead to color fringes getting defused.
  • They lack a critical sharpness at 200mm focal length, until the aperture is dropped to F/8, although image sharpness does not differ from the competitors in the other ranges.
  • This added profile evidently adds up more cost to the full package as the customers habitual with Photoshop CS5 or Lightroom 3 will have to install an updated version of Adobe DNG converter to use the updated lens profile.

Cons at a Glance

  • Too heavy for to carry for the level of Macro shoots the lenses give, with the detachable tripod mount attached.
  • Too much work upon the image may lead to color fringes getting defused.
  • They lack a critical sharpness at 200mm focal length, until the aperture is dropped to F/8, although image sharpness does not differ from the competitors in the other ranges.
  • This added profile evidently adds up more cost to the full package as the customers habitual with Photoshop CS5 or Lightroom 3 will have to install an updated version of Adobe DNG converter to use the updated lens profile.

Prices and Availability

The SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC USD (Model A009) for Nikon mount and the SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD (Model F004) for Nikon mount and the SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di USD (Model A007) for Sony mount are available in the market since Dec. 2012 and reasonably priced starting at $1499

Verdict

All in all it’s a positive lens profile update by Tamron, it not only increases the quality of work that one could produce using the Adobe Suit, but adds on to its credibility and availability at lower price than CANON 70-200mm 2.8, the CANON 70-200mm 2.8 IS and the CANON 70-200mm 2.8 IS II. Tamron has well optimized their telephoto zoom lenses by this addition to the profile of aberration correction provided in Adobe ® Photoshop ® CS6, Photoshop’s raw image plug-in Camera Raw, and the photo management software Photoshop Lightroom ® 4. The update is more on a technical side where user already familiar with the features of  Adobe products gets to use the functionality with better insight and proficiency.
