Canon Announces the PowerShot G12 and SX 30 IS

And the new camera announcements just keep rolling along.

The Canon PowerShot G12 is a mild update to the G11 and the SX30 IS is nothing more than a tweener with a superduper telephoto lens.

Not much is different about the G12 since it has the same sensor but now it records HD (720p) video and has a high sensitivity mode. Oh, and …

Samsung Goes Mirrorless With NX100

Following up on the NX10, Samsung has announced the NX100, a mirrorless 14.6-megapixel shooter with an i-Function lens. It looks a heck of a lot like the Olympus Pen series, doesn’t it?

According the Samsung, the NX100 shares many attributes with the NX10 from the APS-C sensor to the 3-inch AMOLED screen to the HD (720p) video …

Olympus E-5 DSLR Sports Swiveling LCD, 720p Video

Hands-on With the Contour GPS

What could make a wearable hands-free full HD camera better? How about GPS?

Seattle-based Contour announced just that this morning with the Contour GPS. Like its predecessor, the ContourHD, the GPS model records in full HD at 30fps with a 135-degree (110-degree at 1080p) viewing angle. A built-in GPS module updates a few times per …

Hands-on With the Pentax K-r DSLR

Photokina must be around the corner.

Building on the momentum of the K-x and K-7 DSLRs, Pentax has just announced the K-r DSLR. The latest entry-level DSLR, however, isn’t an update to the K-x. It’s a bit of mix between Pentax’s entry-level and high-end models with a 3-inch LCD, 720p video recording (25fps) and ISO up to 25600. …

Nikon Announces Two More Point-and-Shoot Cameras

The S8100 and S80 aren’t as impressive as the P7000 but they each respectively have features worth mentioning.

A 12.1-megapixel backside illumination CMOS sensor (ISO up to 3200), 10x Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens, 1080p video recording and 10fps full resolution high-speed shooting make up the majority of the $300 price tag on the …

Want: Nikon Coolpix P7000

The Coolpix P7000 from Nikon is the point-and-shoot camera we’ve all been waiting for. Nikon’s latest flagship compact drops the megapixels in favor of better low light performance and an overall polished package that has us lusting over it.

A 10.1-megapixel CCD sensor (1/1.7”), 7.1x wide angle optical zoom lens (28-200mm …

Kodak Playtouch: This One Might Be Good, I Swear

The Playtouch is the third or fourth video camera from Kodak that may actually be worth its weight in gold. As far as pocketable video cameras go at least.

It shoots in full HD (built-in digital image stabilization!) and has a 3-inch capacitive touch-screen but the external mic jack for stereo recording is the one bright spot on a …

Nikon D3100: 1080p Video, Full-Time AF

Shaking up the DSLR market is something Nikon does extremely well. And they’ve just done it again with the D3100, the first DSLR to record video at 1080p with persistent auto-focus. Retailing for only $700 is another reason to consider the Nikon as your first DSLR.

The 14.2-megapixel (CMOS) D3100 records 1080p video at 24fps in …
