Canon a lansat un fisheye la aproximativ 1800E.

When paired with Canon’s full-frame DSLR bodies, such as the
EOS 5D Mark II or the EOS -1Ds Mark III, professional photographers can choose to capture circular or full-frame fisheye images, allowing them to view a scene in a completely new and unique way. This new level of choice provides enhanced creative flexibility when shooting scenes such as the night sky, where the full 180º horizontal and vertical fields of view (FOV) allow every detail to be captured with incredible clarity in one single image.

When used with EOS bodies featuring APS-C or APS-H sensors, the
EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM produces a more traditional, full frame fisheye view. A zoom-lock mechanism on the lens body allows the range to be limited to the focal length that ensures the best possible full-frame view without unsightly vignetting around the edge. ‘C’ and ‘H’ markings can be found next to the zoom operation ring, indicating the wide-angle zoom position where vignette-free shooting is possible with either sensor, allowing photographers to achieve optimum results with any EOS body.

Eh?

Nikon a anuntat D3100, o varianta rafinata a D3000-ului, chiar un upgrade consistent al acestuia!

– 3.0″ LCD monitor (230,000 dots)
– Image sensor cleaning (sensor shake)
– 11 AF points (with 3D tracking)
– IS0 100-3200 range (12,800 expanded)

D3100 creste rezolutia cu 4.2MP, poate RAW, poti conecta GPS, live view, 1080HD, iesire HDMI, ISO mai generos, Full time AF (pentru live view), focus screen imbunatatit. Nikon uimeste cu capabilitatile pe care le impacheteaza in DSLR-urile low entry, D3000-ul s-a vandut foarte bine, la fel ca D60(x)-ul pe care il inlocuia.

Primul aparat low entry foarte accesibil al celor de la Nikon a fost D40-ul care a avut un succes enorm, neegalat inca de rivali.

Pe dpreview este hands-on review-ul si restul care arata ca EOS 60D este un “Super Rebel” si nu o continuare a seriei x0D. Parerea mea este ca au ales gresit directia cu modelul asta, caracteristici cum ar fi carcasa din plastic si nu din aliaj de magneziu ca pana acum, ecranul rabatabil, renuntarea la CF-uri vor pune pe ganduri pe cei care au cumparat pana acum seria mid-range x0D de la Canon, reorientandu-se la 7D sau la predecesorii acestuia.

Exista posibilitatea ca cei de la Canon sa isi realinieze produsele din seria EOS, 7D-ul si 60D-ul sa acopere niste gauri pe care concurenta le ofera deja…
