Further trade fairs and subsequent release for us. Is there this year something really interesting? In summary, we view the photographic novelties that have had the greatest impression on us.
Undoubtedly, trade shows in Las Vegas are some of the most interesting technology events of the year. This is the largest event of its kind where you can find just about anything – from electronics sticks to the ears, by computers, to remote-controlled cars for huge money. There are also manufacturers of photographic equipment – because even if it's Photokina Cologne is considered the flagship event for the industry, it is the CES attracts the most attention from the media and the public. The fact is, many essential prime minister was not. There is a mass of compact and superzoomów, but no spectacular product never received. There were however a few that really intriguing.
A little out of spite – start from cameras
In the world of filming SLR camera to invest in "handy" may not be a great idea, but AX100 stand out from the crowd. Recording material in 4K through 1-inch matrix, but it is only the advantages of this inconspicuous device, another is the ability to shoot Full HD in slow motion.In addition to these modes, also deserves recognition optics with 12x optical zoom lens and light from T2, 8 7-blade aperture should ensure a pleasant bokeh, which in the compact camera segment as it was still difficult to achieve (except maybe NEX s). In the end – at this year's CES-e 4K was one of the leitmotifs. It can be considered that the AX100 is a perfect example.
A solid body of amateur update
The exterior is not particularly different. The structure is similar to that used in the predecessor – and therefore quite simple, small. If you are a novice photographer, it certainly Nikon D3300 does not put you off buttons and knobs accumulation.On the other hand, should cope much better than the older generation. The manufacturer introduced a new matrix with a resolution of 24 megapixels, took care of fast EXPEED image processor 4 and improved continuous shooting mode. The last of the important new feature is the ability to record video in Full HD quality at up to 60 frames per second. In addition to this you will find on board the manual mode and the mass of the automatic functions, easy panorama mode, the various effects, and standard automatic exposure ending.
Canon LEGRIA mini X
A plethora of features in a small form
LEGRIA mini X has to be – above all – a camera with a good microphone. The two-layer structure of the cloth and sponge inside in conjunction with the enlarged size is limited noise and interference static. It just helps to classify LEGRII mini X as a camera amenable to interviews or conversations, but also to record the loudest moments of the concert.Manufacturer gives us to use the jack for headphones and an external microphone, which will make the mini X curious additional choice for professionals. The quality of the image corresponds to the CMOS sensor diagonally 1/2, 3 inch, Writing video quality AVCHD (1080/50i) and MP4 (1080/25p). The material is processed by the DV DIGIC 4, so that noise is to be kept to a minimum.
Fujifilm FinePix S1
Large superzoom with high ergonomic
16.4-megapixel sensor and a powerful 50x optical zoom is the most important features of this equipment. Others, however, are by no means derisory – because you get the sealed housing with mass drawn on top of the buttons and knobs, you get a deep grip, tilting screen, electronic viewfinder, the Wi-Fi …The course their weights. With dimensions of 133 x 110 x 91 mm and weight of 680 grams you will not have to deal with a feather, but – in my opinion – it is worth the FinePix S1 interest. It's comfortable, versatile solution. If you are an amateur and do not want to spend a thousand for a new glass for SLR – the equipment should meet your needs. In addition to the above is too fast – turns up in half a second, and autofocus blades in just 0.14 seconds. There is also a movie mode (and that's good, because Full HD 60p mode) and 5-axis image stabilization.
AF-S NIKKOR 35 mm f / 1,8 G ED
First glass at a reasonable price
The new Nikkor 35 mm f / 1,8 G ED will give you access to a large aperture and a 7-flap aperture, so get the appropriate class bokeh – maybe not the same as the more expensive equivalent of f / 1.4, but definitely worth the money . Nikon had already offered such a glass, but it was not designed to work with matrices FX.Now it will be different. 35 mm f / 1,8 G lens complementary line of primes with a similar light, providing access to high-quality products in pathogenic price – especially if we take into account the quality. The barrel can find 11 lens elements in 8 groups, with one element made of ED glass (low-dispersion), and the second is aspherical. Overall size is 72 x 72 mm and a diameter of 58 mm.
Panasonic Leica DG Nocticron 42.5 mm f / 1,2
The lens worth the money, no surplus for "red dot"
The format equivalent focal length małoobrazkowego get equal 85 millimeters – ideal for portrait. If you complete the equation for the powerful light at f / 1.2, the DG Noctitron we begin to seem extremely attractive proposition. And rightly so.Glass does not cost enough. Euro 1499, however, in my opinion, adequate price for the options. Approx. 6200 PLN in direct scaler and so puts the equipment on more affordable items, than a similar proposal for Canon SLR (over 8000 gold). There remains only the question of the ability of the optical one and the other, but we'll see about that after the first test. The lens is compatible with Micro Four Thirds – according to first announced at Photokina effected for in September 2012. Care was taken here of the optical stabilization (OIS), and optical design includes two aspherical lenses, a low dispersion and a high refractive index.
Sigma 50 mm f / 1,4 DG HSM
New design and new construction
The new Sigma is the successor to the glass over a five-year. Novelty is worthy of a good "fifties" – the manufacturer attempted to not only a new design, but also about a completely new optical design.50 mm f / 1,4 DG HSM fits perfectly in line art, offering a minimalist form and pleasing bokeh, obtained thanks to high brightness and 9-flap aperture. In the middle of the barrel you will find 13 elements deployed in 8 groups, including aspherical lens also made from low-dispersion glass. The structure measures 99.9 x 85.4 mm and weighing 470 grams and a diameter equal to 77 mm filter.
Lexar Professional 3333x CFast 2.0
The fastest card in the world
The new Lexar card is promoted by the manufacturer as the fastest among the public solutions to this class. If you are not a professional filmmaker, it's probably not useful to you, but the fact is most remarkable and prizes. For what would be the world's biggest trade fair without the next record?The carrier is designed for use with high-end cinema cameras, and therefore the average SLR simply will not work. The purpose of the card is to record movies in 4K, which indeed proves the speed of 500 megabytes per second. The result will be available only in laboratory conditions – but in the real world, and so no other card Lexarowi far no match.
Fujifilm XF 56 mm f / 1,2 R
Bright Lens for bezlusterkowców X
Fujifilm has not remained indifferent and also showed his glass portraits. The equivalent format małoobrazkowego get a standard focal length of 85 mm with light f / 1,2 – and therefore the parameters similar to those of the above-described lens for Micro Four Thirds.As one of the advantages of double-lens manufacturer lists the smaller size than in the case of structures with similar characteristics, but designed for SLR. Well – we achieve such a state of things as it were by force, but it is difficult to accuse Fuji false argument. On the technical side XF 56 mm f / 1,2 R seems to be the perfect choice for anyone who is serious about photography bezlusterkowcem. Details on the lens can be found here.
He appeared in the nick of time
Polaroid is doing terribly in the digital world. Okay, otherwise – not terribly fared in the digital world.This tiny camera is one of the most charming of electronic equipment I've ever seen. Revived my faith in the Polaroid, but probably will not last long. Hit the sales to this equipment not happen for one reason – hardly anyone outside environment geekowego hear about it. A pity. On the technical side we get a little. Ability to save video in 720p and photos at a resolution of 5 megapixels are not sufficient reasons for the conquest of the world … But the same form Polaroid C3 – yes.
Special Mention: Samsung WB2200F
This is something that you will look after years with a smile
WB2200F came here not because it has to offer spectacular set of features. Appeared, because it is original and has a completely custom form. It reminds SLR with Grip additional or integrated – and is based on a small, half-inch ,33 matrix. This will however take full advantage of the bounties provided by the vertical grip – and therefore additional zoom lever and a second shutter release button. Lacked only the second battery.His untrite design will be the one on which the 5, for 10 years encounter in the lists "the strangest hearing world." Samsung could not think that this model becomes popular. He could, however – and perhaps that was precisely the purpose – to draw the attention of the premiere.
Why run Lumiksa GH 4K?
In addition to an interesting glass and several kompaktami, Panasonic showed bezlusterkowca also capable of recording video in 4K quality. But it was not the equipment in the final version. Its premiere is planned for February – and only then it can be incorporated into any charts or summaries.
