Camera House : Better Pictures 11
6 Products Hot new gear Let’s start with the whopping 24.3 megapixels, the ability to shoot full 1080p HD movies, the 39-point AF system with Scene Recognition and an ISO range of 100-6400 (expandable to 25600) plus the ability to shoot 5.5fps continuous shooting at full resolution. Now consider the compact body, the 2.016 pixel RGB sensor, the ability to shoot cinematic movies at variable frame rates and Wi-Fi compatibility for instant sharing of images with friends and family via social networks. You can also shoot in slow or fast motion, and AF with Face Detection and Subject Tracking will keep your movies looking schmick. Sleek and stylish, the E-PL5 is another addition to the Olympus PEN system camera range. It provides shooters with DSLR-style features and interchangeable lenses, alongside a small form factor that will appeal to the photographer on the go. Lightweight and portable, it serves up an 18 megapixel LiveMOS sensor, a vari-angle touch screen and the option of wireless connectivity. Add to this a fast AF system, Zuiko lenses and the ability to shoot at 8fps in full resolution and you have a mighty fine camera indeed! NikoN D600 olympus pENE-pl5 With its gorgeous retro style the X-E1 recalls a simpler time when photos were shot on film and you savoured the anticipation of a print appearing magically from the chemical bath. Looks aside though and the X-E1 is all 21st century. With a large APS-C sensor it delivers high resolution pics with a lovely bokeh. The OLED viewfinder is super bright and a joy to use. With an ISO range of 6400 expandable to 25600 it’s a wizard in low light. Add an M Mount adapter and access the full range of Fuji’s M Mount lenses. FujiFilm X- E 1 With its retro good looks, this camera is bound to appeal to the shooter looking for a camera with class. Don’t let its striking appearance fool you though – this camera has brains as well as beauty. Armed with a 24.3 megapixel Full-Frame Exmor CMOS sensor it’s the first fixed-lens compact digital camera with a 35mm full-frame image sensor. Add to this a fantastic, fast f/2 lens and a new ‘Multi Interface’ that allows you to add a wide range of accessories and you have one smart camera. The RX1 serves up fantastic high-res images as well as HD movies at 1080p. It also boasts a large bright LCD screen that utilises Sony’s new ‘white magic technology’ (it adds a white pixel to the conventional RGB pixel pattern). The result is a brighter screen that is great when shooting in glary environments. soNy CybEr-shot DmC-rX1 004_Bpics11_HotGear.indd 6 27/11/12 2:01 PM
