Camera House : Better Pictures 10
4 Products Hot new gear HOT NEW GEAR The latest camera gear set to sizzle. Canon EoS M nikon Coolpix aW1 0 0 Canon, the last of the big name camera manufacturers to enter the mirrorless compact system affray, launches with a bang! Canon’s new EOS M is aimed squarely at the compact user wanting to take a step up in image quality without the complexities that a DSLR camera can bring to the table or is ideal as a second camera for a DSLR user. Armed with a newly-designed lens mount – the EF-M – this new compact system camera is released with two new lenses, the EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5 -5 .6 IS STM Zoom and the EF-M 22mm f/2 pancake. It is compatible with Canon’s entire EF and EF-S lens range, meaning it will also appeal to the DSLR shooter wanting a more compact solution for everyday use. It sports an 18 megapixel APS-C Hybrid CMOS sensor for superb image clarity, has an ISO range of 100-12,800 (25,600 expanded), and is capable of shooting 4.3 fps; making it easy to capture action, even in low light or when shooting fast moving subjects. The inclusion of 1080p full HD recording should also appeal to those wanting to explore their inner Spielberg, and the ability to plug in an external mic allows for fabulous sound quality to boot. Add to this a range of in-camera creative filters, which can be previewed live on the large 3-inch TFT screen, and Scene Intelligent Auto functions to set the newbie photographer on the road to crafting great images and you have a compact system camera that’s going to fly out the door. Nikon took their time releasing a tough camera but the AW100 was definitely worth the wait. Waterproof, shockproof and freezeproof, the AW100 can take you from the snowfields to the desert to a deep-sea adventure with ease. Equipped with a 16 megapixel CMOS sensor and a 5x zoom ED glass lens, it serves up crystal clear images at the touch of a button. Add to this built-in GPS, an electronic compass and easy to use Action controls and you have a rugged camera that’s ready for life’s adventures. 004_Bpics10_HotGear.v2_final.indd 4 3/09/12 10:58 AM
