Camera House : Better Pictures 8
6 Products Hot new gear Canon PowersHot g1 X olymPus Vg-160 It may look like its G series predecessors, but the G1 X is an entirely different beast from its siblings. Combining a large 14.3 megapixel CMOS sensor with a DIG!C 5 processor, the G1 X is an awesome compact camera that would make the ideal companion to your DSLR. It’s Canon’s first compact to feature a 4:3 aspect ratio and delivers the same pixel size and structure as the acclaimed 600D – not bad for a compact! Boasting many of the advanced features from Canon’s EOS range, such as on-chip noise reduction, a 4-channel read-out (for super fast image capture) and a wide ISO range (from 100- 12800) it’s superb at handling low light situations. The lens build is equally impressive, utilising ultra high refractive index aspherical (UA) elements and precision glass moulding technology (just like Canon’s EF series’ lenses). It delivers a 4x optical zoom range of 28mm-112mm, giving photographers plenty of options for shooting on the go. The inclusion of image stabilisation is also a bonus when shooting in low light or when using the camera’s HD (full 1080p) movie mode. The lens also includes an in-built 3-stop Neutral Density (ND) Filter, allowing for wider apertures in bright light. Full manual controls will ensure you always get the shot you want and the ability to shoot in RAW is another bonus. A pop-up flash adds to the package and a hot shoe means you can add Speedlites or other accessories at will. Ideal for the pro shooter looking for a camera with a more compact form factor. Olympus’ latest addition to its entry-level camera range proves a great choice for novice shooters looking for a camera that will satisfy their daily shooting needs. Equipped with a 5x wide-angle zoom lens, 14 megapixel resolution and a large 3-inch LCD for viewing and framing your shots, it’s simple to use and comes with 14 scene modes and magic filters to add ease and creativity to your shooting. HD movie recording is also included for budding filmmakers and the range of colours will appeal to the fashionistas.
