  • Pentax K-5 DSLR Pictures And Specs Leak

    Pentax K-5 DSLR Pictures And Specs Leak

    Hot on the heels of the consumer-level K-r released yesterday, Pentax's K-5 is making an appearance, though not quite as officially. Some unethical retailers leaked the specs, and Lens Tip found the leaked photo, though they appear to have taken it down. Chances are this thing is right around the corner, probably set to be released next week. Read More

    Pentax Announces K-r DSLR For $800

    Pentax has updated its DSLR line with the new K-r, successor to the K-x. The improvements are modest: you've got improved ISO range (up to 25600 expanded, but I wouldn't), a better burst rate (6FPS, which is sweet), and a much-improved LCD (3" at 640x480). You've still got the same 12 megapixels and the 720p video is limited to 25FPS, which is likely what I'd choose anyway (well, 24, but eh). Read More

    Nikon Makes The D3100 DSLR Official: $700, 14 Megapixels, Improved Video

    If you've been following the rumors about the Nikon D3100, you pretty much know all there is to know. Early reports were dead-on regarding new features, specs, and even the day of the announcement. The D3100 is a long-overdue update to Nikon's consumer DSLR, putting it on equal footing with Canon's excellent T2i — if not outdoing it. Read More

  • Sony's Swivel-Screen α33 And α55 DSLRs Get Pictured

    Sony's Swivel-Screen α33 And α55 DSLRs Get Pictured

    Being a Canon man, I've had little occasion to check out the Sony Alpha series of DSLRs, but honestly, I've heard lots of good things about them. They might not have the lens prowess of the Canons, Nikons, and Pentaxes, but they're good cameras. The upcoming α33 and α55 look like strong contenders, and the addition of swivel screens sweetens the deal. Read More

  • Is This The Canon 60D?

    Is This The Canon 60D?

    These spy shots appear to show the swivel-screen DSLR that’s been rumored for the past few months. We also hear that there’s a Canon event being scheduled internationally for August 26th, which tallies with previous rumors. Is it the 60D announcement? There’s no way to be sure, but I’m just going to act like I’m sure anyway. Yes! Read More

  • A Few Likely Canon 60D Specs

    A Few Likely Canon 60D Specs

    Our usual source for unreleased (and possibly false) Canon info, Canon Rumors, has posted a few specs for the 60D that actually seem perfectly likely. The 60D is supposed to be a video-focused replacement for the 40D, and reports indicate it's more than a rumor, and possibly hitting in early September. The specs quoted at Canon Rumors are limited but telling. Read More

  • Canon 60D to be revealed in August?

    Canon 60D to be revealed in August?

    There were some rumors swirling that the mythical 60D, supposedly a prosumer DSLR situated between the T2i and 7D, would be announced tomorrow. That doesn’t seem to be the case after all, but with all this chatter, when else could it be? Oh I don’t know, how about at Canon’s once-every-five-years Canon Expo event, happening September 2nd-3rd? If I had any money, that’s the… Read More

    Watch House? Like gadgets? Tonight's episode was the one shot on a 5D mk II

    I heard about this a little while back when they had just wrapped. The director was excited to have shot an episode (the season finale) on the 5D mk II and was answering questions about it, a bit inexpertly I think, no doubt to the chagrin of the DP who actually shot the episode. The episode is airing tonight at 8PM tonight on FOX — watch it with your friends and then say “oh yeah they… Read More

    Rumor: new Nikon DSLRs incoming?

    New Nikon DSLRs... that wouldn't be much of a rumor — of course they're coming. But this rumor has specs! Things! Being! Rumored! It's exciting! So what have we here... three new cameras coming? So exciting. Read More

    DSLR LCD too small? Here, have a tiny HD monitor

    If you're using a DSLR for video (as I'm about to, having just received a T2i to check out), your monitor options are pretty limited in-camera. Obviously you can't look through the viewfinder, but the live view on the LCD is so small that you can't really make much out — and the resolution is rubbish, too. SmallHD thinks they have a solution in this camera-mounted tiny HD display, but it too… Read More
