First Sony NEX-7 DSLR image spotted

Posted in Cameras by Conner Flynn on July 14th, 2011

Looks like the Sony NEX-7 digital SLR rumors are true. It will mimic the look of an older Konica-Minolta Dimage A2. We know this because a new digital image of the upcoming Sony shooter has been leaked. The image is said to be of a pre-production unit, so some changes will likely happen. A rangefinder similar to that of the Fujifilm X100 can be seen on the image as well.

The camera is expected to get a 24-megapixel sensor from the A77 and a three million-pixel OLED EVF that’s not a hybrid viewfinder. There’s also a Carl Zeiss 24mm f1.8 prototype lens has been seen attached to the DSLR in the image, a hot shoe, and flash and image preview buttons, the pop-up flash, manual aperture and shutter speed controls. All the stuff you …

Hasselblad ships 200-megapixel H4D-200MS camera

Posted in Cameras by Conner Flynn on May 25th, 2011

If you have a spare $45,038 or so, Hasselblad is shipping their 200-megapixel camera: the H4D-200MS. This medium format camera is based on a 50-megapixel sensor but composites six shots to create the resolution. The process uses a piezoelectric motor to create the image and takes 30 seconds, so this one is not for portraits.

The camera continues to shoot at sensitivities between ISO 50 and 800 and also keeps the True Focus feature, which uses motion sensors to auto-adjust the focus after the camera is rotated for an off-center shot. Photos can save to a Compact Flash card, though Hasselblad recommends using its hard drive tethering feature because of the 600MB uncompressed photos at the full 200 megapixels.

Revolver Camera shoots a bullet, takes a picture

Posted in Weapons by Conner Flynn on May 19th, 2011

Photographers who also like to shoot guns will love this weapon. This weapon fires bullets and takes pictures at the same time. It was apparently used in 1938 in New York. The gun is a Colt 38 and it had a tiny camera attached to it that was controlled by the trigger.

We don’t have much more information than that, but it’s impressive. One thing is for sure, you don’t want to be in these pictures. Good thing nobody else got their hands on it. I can easily imagine some whack job firing away at people and posting the pics online. Yeah, this is not a good combination here.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G3 expected to launch tomorrow

Posted in Panasonic by Conner Flynn on May 11th, 2011

Rumor is that Panasonic will be launching the Lumix DMC-G3 tomorrow, which is the update to its Micro Four Thirds G2. This new camera is said to be 25 percent smaller than its predecessor with a 15.8 megapixel sensor and a 3-inch articulating LCD. Hopefully it will fit your hand perfectly.

Looks like the camera is very similar to the G2 in form, but with no left dial since it has touch controls. All indications are that it will launch tomorrow and that is indeed good news for Lumix fans.

Seventh-gen iPod nano with 1.3 megapixel camera?

Posted in iPod Nano by Conner Flynn on May 10th, 2011

Could this be Apple’s next iPod nano? Taiwan’s Apple.pro website thinks so and since they also recently got their hands on a purported next-gen iPod nano chassis that seems to match the device pictured above, it looks likely.

The obvious change is the built-in camera, which is apparently 1.3 megapixels. Take this with the usual grain of salt for now, as we don’t have any confirmation, but it is looking like this is the real deal. We will know for sure before long.

Canon cameras have a distinct look, so you recognize them right away. But why are these so small? Wait, those aren’t cameras, they’re flash drives. Aren’t they adorable. Now Canon fans have some storage options just for them.
