CES 2012 Camera Coverage







NIKON D4


I have already covered quite a bit about the new flagship Nikon D4. However many people have been getting there hands on a prototype at CES 2012. This is the big news from Nikon for CES 2012, along with the release of the Nikon 85mm f/1.8G. No news about the Nikon D800, as I suspect Nikon will save that info for CP+.

CANON G1X


The big news for the show is the new Canon G1X. It features a large sensor 18.7 x 14mm, 14.3 MP sensor with a professional 4:3 aspect ratio. The ISO is capable of 12,800, although its probably only useful up to 3200. The G1X does not have the option for interchangeable lenses. Further, it has a slow 28-110 f/2.8-5.8 lens. The remaining features are as youd expect, 3 LCD 922K dots, electronic viewfinder, 14bit RAW, 1080p video, etc.

You can pre-order the new G1X from Amazon.

JVC GY-HMQ10 - 4K CAMERA


Don't like the video quality out of the D4? Well perhaps JVC has your solution. The new GY-HMQ10 is a compact 4K camcorder. 4K is not the price, it is a high resolution video standard, beyond 1080p. The GY-HMQ10 can deliver real-time video at a resolution of 3840 x 2160 (QFHD) at up to 60p! However, the sensor is quite smaller than that of a 35mm, measuring at 1/2".
