Panasonic is set to upgrade its Lumix series by bringing in the all new Lumix GF5. The 12.1 megapixel camera refines the shooting capabilities of its predecessor GF3. The upgrade brings with it a slew of new features like live MOS image sensor and multi-process noise reduction. It also comes with the latest version of Panasonic’s Venus Engine.
The Wednesday-launched Pentax’s new rugged digital camera - Pentax Optio W80 - is the most-recent addition to the fairly long list of waterproof and rugged cameras and camcorders released this year!
To hit the markets in July, the W80 will be available in three colors - Azure Blue, Cardinal Red, and Gunmetal Gray.
Panasonic's most recent ultra-light HD camcorders - the AVCHD HDC-TM10 and HDC-SD10 - will become available in the US September onwards. Both the high-definition camcorders, which Panasonic unveiled at CES earlier this year, are, as per the company claims, "the world's lightest full-HD AVCHD camcorders."
For consumers who are looking at an evolution of the conventional point-and-shoot cameras, Sony has announced three new entry-level DSLRs - digital single-lens reflex cameras - which are being marketed as lightweight and user-friendly, with more guided operations. The cameras will hit the stores in mid-June.
Bridging the gap between two of its well-liked models, D60 and D90, Nikon has announced its scheduled consumer DSLR - the Nikon D5000. The all-new entry level Nikon model will cost a reasonable $849.95, including the kit and the 18-55mm VR lens, or $729.95 without them. In addition, Nikon will also offer a two-lens kit - which adds a 55mm to 200mm zoom lens - for $1,100.
