The new Sony NEX-EA50 was quite the surprise when Sony unveiled it a couple of weeks ago. Dan Chung of DSLR News Shooter recently got a hands-on demo of the new APS-C powered, ENG-style camera at the BIRTV show in Beijing.
Check out the video below for a walkthrough of the NEX-EA50′s features. [click to continue…]
The ioSafe Extreme is a portable, bus-powered hard drive that is built like a tank. It is available in 500GB or 1TB capacities with a 5400RPM spinning drive, or with a SSD drive from 120GB-600GB capacities. The latest models are USB 3.0 only; however, the model that I reviewed was a FW800 with a 5400RPM 1TB drive inside.
The enclosure is a solid aluminum enclosure that matches up nicely with current generation Mac products. Moreover, the aluminum enclosure is crush resistant up to 2500 lbs, while the available titanium enclosure is crush proof up to 5000 lbs. Essentially, you can run over these things with a car and it will still function properly. [click to continue…]
This video from Imaging Resource shows off some of the new features on the Rebel T4i. The smooth video autofocus you see at the end of the video comes courtesy of the new STM lenses. Right now, there are only 2 STM lenses available – the EF 40mm f/2.8 STM and the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM, both of which were announced alongside the T4i.
While the above test from Digital Rev is not quite the serious endeavor, I’m still quite amazed at the abuse the Canon 7D took and the functionality it retained after the fact.
The Panasonic Lumix GX1 is a compact Micro Four Thirds camera that features a 16MP image sensor, a 3-inch touchscreen LCD and captures 1080/60i AVCHD video.
The GX1 is one of the mirrorless cameras that really pushes the compact nature of the mirrorless format, while retaining a large image sensor. Combined with the ultra-compact 14-42mm power zoom lens, the GX1 delivers near-DSLR performance in an almost-pocketable form factor. [click to continue…]
The Canon 5D Mark III turns out to be the best performing Canon DSLR to ever grace the DxO sensor testing lab; however, DxO still has the Nikon D800 markedly ahead of the 5D3. [click to continue…]
