Camera House : Better Pictures 11
holidays Gift Guide 22 Canon called this camera a milestone in its compact camera range and if you get your hands on one you’ll see why. The newly developed 1.5 inch 14.3 megapixel High Sensitivity CMOS sensor provides superb image clarity especially when coupled with the f/2.8 lens, which is fast and bright. Photo enthusiasts will appreciate the ability to shoot RAW images for greater creative control and with an ISO range up to 12800, it’s a demon when it comes to low light situations – able to eke out the smallest amount of light and use it to advantage. Full manual controls and HD movie recording are the final elements that cinch the deal for this camera. Don’t take our word for it – just look at all the celebrities parading around with the G1X. Canon Powershot G1X fuji Xe-1 Reminiscent of the OM-1 SLR camera from which it takes its name, the OM-D is Olympus’ latest entry in the compact system camera range. Able to shoot 9fps in continuous mode at full resolution or 4fps when using continuous AF, this camera is built for speed – it loves capturing fast moving action and is also wonderful for shooting portraits and landscapes. The 16 megapixel MOS sensor is superb for taking high res images and HD recording is another bonus. olymPus om-d Taking a page from the old school style of SLR cameras of the seventies, the Fuji XE-1 is one gorgeous camera that lives up to its looks. It features a large 16 megapixel APS-C sized sensor, a super bright OLED screen and 8fps high speed continuous shooting. Full HD movies at 1080p are also an option and there are a number of cool film simulation modes to experiment with. AE bracketing, motion panorama and selectable AF with 49 focus points make this one hell of a camera for any shooter. Opting for the classic looks of compact cameras from yesteryear, the P7700 sports a number of killer features that will have the hipsters running to the store. Compact, lightweight and easy to use, the P7700 can do all the work for you (there are 19 scene modes) or you can opt for manual mode for more creative control. This is point and shoot with a difference. A 12.2 megapixel CMOS sensor provides gorgeous high-res images, while the 7.1x NIKKOR ED Glass zoom lens provides plenty of versatility when it comes to zooming in on your subject. nikon CoolPiX P7700 for the retro lover 016_Bpics11_Giftguide.indd 22 27/11/12 2:03 PM
