Canon has announced a pair of new entry-level DSLRs – the EOS Rebel T3i and EOS Rebel T3.

The Canon Rebel T3i features an 18MP CMOS sensor, a 3-inch vari-angle LCD (very similar to the 60D) and captures HD video in full 1920 x 1080 resolution at 24p, 25p, or 30p.  A new feature for EOS cameras, the T3i allows users to magnify HD video between 3x to 10x while retaining Full HD quality.  Additionally, you can opt to record video clips (dubbed “Video Snapshots”) at 2s, 4s, or 8s while capturing still images.

A big boost for the Rebel line is the T3i’s ability to control Canon Speedlites courtesy of a built-in Integrated Speedlite Transmitter.  The Canon Rebel T3i should be available in March and retails for $799.99 for body only and for $899.99 with the new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II kit lens.  Check availability on Amazon.com.

The Canon Rebel T3 becomes the entry-level Canon Rebel, and sports a 12.2MP CMOS sensor, DIGIC 4 processor and 9-point AF system.  The Rebel T3 can also capture video, albeit at a lower 720p resolution.  The Canon Rebel T3 should be avialable in March at an initial retail price of $599.99.  Check availability on Amazon.com.

In addition to the new Rebel models, Canon has also introduced two new entry-level Speedlites – the 320EX and 270EX II, priced at $249.99 and $169.99, respectively.  The new Speedlites should be available in April.

Samsung NX10 Review

by on June 21, 2010

in Samsung

The Samsung NX10 is 14.6-megapixel camera offering an interchangeable lens design.  The NX10 follows the Micro Four Thirds system from Olympus and Panasonic as a DSLR-like design without a bulky mirror and optical viewfinder.  The NX10 uses a larger APS-C format sensor (with a 1.6x crop factor) as opposed to the Micro Four Thirds cameras (with smaller, 2x crop factor sensors).

The Samsung NX10 does a lot of things right in both form and function.  To see how it stacks up against the competition, read on. [click to continue…]
