Camera House : Better Pictures 14
6 Products Hot new gear CANON EOS 70D FUJIFILM X- M1 Photography enthusiasts looking to expand their creative options will love Canon’s latest addition to the EOS range, the 70D. Replacing the enthusiasts’ workhorse, the 60D, the Canon EOS 70D features new Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology and combines innovative features with wireless capabilities to make shooting and sharing your images easier than ever before. The Dual Pixel CMOS AF system delivers AF performance in Live View mode, much like your viewfinder, enabling speedier focusing, exceptional tracking and smooth AF when shooting HD movies. The new 19-point cross type AF system allows photographers to capture incredible, full resolution images at up to 7 frames per second for a continuous burst of up to 65 JPEG or 16 RAW images. A 3-inch vari-angle ClearView II LCD touch screen allows for greater versatility when framing up your shots and utilises touch controls to easily manipulate and adjust your settings. Add to this an ISO range of 100-12,800 (expandable to 25,600) and the ability to shoot Full HD movies and you have a camera that enthusiasts and pro shooters will adore. With its sleek retro style this gorgeous, lightweight compact system camera offers serious shooters all the capabilities of a DSLR in a much more compact form. Starting with the large APS-C 16-megapixel XTrans CMOS sensor, which incorporates an original colour filter array with a highly random pattern, the X-M1 eliminates the need for an optical low-pass filter. The result: impressive resolution and fabulous colour reproduction from edge to edge. Add to this the new EXR PROCESSOR II that’s perfect for capturing low-light scenes with crisp clarity, free from noise. Less experienced shooters will like the Advanced SR AUTO setting. It takes the decision making out of the photo process by automatically optimising shutter speed, aperture and other settings. It chooses from 58 scene types and then selects the most appropriate for crisp, clear shots every time. The 5.6 frames per second shutter speed lets you capture kids at play, frisky pets and the action of the sports field without any fuss. The tilting monitor makes framing up in awkward locations easy, and twin command dials give you easy access and selection of your favourite settings. Built-in Wi-Fi allows you to transfer images easily to your smart phone or tablet. HOT NEW GEAR The latest camera gear set to sizzle. 006_Bpics14_HotGear_v2.indd 6 27/08/13 9:35 AM
