Camera House : Better Pictures 12
25 Fuji chose CES to debut its new X100s and X20 cameras plus the crowd-pleasing FujiFilm Instax Mini 8. This instant-print camera is certain to appeal to the party going hipster, who will love to pull it out to take happy snaps at their next event. The new version also provides the option to switch between automatic exposure modes and manual controls for greater creativity. Meanwhile professional shooters looking for a back up to their traditional DSLR will love the retro good looks and exceptional image quality of the X100S. Fujifilm Move over NX210 – your new sibling the NX300 is better and bolder. Not only does it look schmick, it also boasts a number of improvements on its predecessor as well as adding new features such as 3D photo and movie mode. This is one sexy, mirrorless camera. Samsung also chose CES as the place to debut their latest range of smart cameras, from the mini-sized WB30F to the WB800F (a classic long zoom with 21x capabilities) to the DV150, which combines Wi-Fi connectivity with a front LCD to make it the ultimate pocket companion for social snappers. All the new models feature ‘smart camera 2.0’ to make shooting and sharing a breeze. Samsung While Sigma make some incredible lenses, people don’t often think of the brand when considering a camera purchase, but all that is about to change. The latest addition to the Sigma family is the DP3 Merrill, and to put it simply, it’s badass. It offers a 50mm f/2.8 super fast prime lens and serves up a fabulous 46 megapixel CMOS sensor that provides crystal clear image quality. Sigma Feature CES VEGAS Point and shoot was king over at Canon, who chose to debut its new Powershot N – an unconventionally boxy new happy snapper that delivered style and substance – at CES . Armed with a new capacitive touchscreen framing up was easy – and the placement of the zoom and shutter release should appeal to left-handed shooters. Canon also dished up three further upgrades on some of its more popular point and shoot models including the new ELPH 130 IS which has improved Wi-Fi, an 8x optical zoom (28-224mm), and a 3-inch LCD screen plus a new PowerShot , the A2600 with a 5x zoom (28-140mm). While the new A1400 (an upgrade of the A1300) opts for AA batteries and has an optical viewfinder, plus 5x zoom (28-140mm) and a 2.7-inch screen, making it a good solution for those seeking a point and shoot to capture their travels.
