THIS YEAR was a big one for new camera introductions, with Canon and Nikon delivering hotly anticipated updates to their top-tier DSLRs: the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and EOS-1D X, and for Nikon, the D800 and D4. As of press time, Canon and Nikon introduced four new models each. One of these, the EOS M, is Canon’s first entry into the mirrorless market, featuring a large APS-C image sensor and a new line of lenses to match. Sony also was busy this year, introducing five new models so far in 2012, including the first full-frame Translucent Mirror camera, the Alpha SLT-A99. In fact, all of the major camera makers expanded their offerings—more than 20 new models have been released. With so many exciting new cameras to show you, we focused…

Our Sony-sponsored 3rd Annual Art Of Expression contest was the biggest and best yet. We received over 14,000 entries, and you can see all of the finalists at The Sony Artisans Of Imagery Andy Katz, David McLain, Cristina Mittermeier and Brian Smith judged the competition, along with the editors of Digital Photo and Outdoor Photographer magazines. All of the judges agreed that this was the best pool of talent we had seen in the three years since we started this program. Congratulations to the winners and all of the finalists!

top 10 tips for camera buyers

Digital technology hasn’t only transformed the way we take photographs, but also created an explosion of camera options. Where a camera maker in the days of film would have a few models in their line, it’s not uncommon today to find a dozen or more options from each manufacturer. This is partly because there are more variations of camera design today. The film shooter had basically two choices: SLR or compact “point-and-shoot.” In the digital world, the compact, fixed-lens cameras have split into two varieties: the very simple, very small point-and-shoot models, and the more robust, high-performance models with pro features and expansive zooms. Interchangeable-lens models have also diverged, into three types: traditional SLRs, Sony’s fixed-translucent-mirror cameras, and mirrorless models that completely omit the mirror box and optical viewfinder and dramatically cut…

mirrorless cameras

CANON EOS M Canon’s long-anticipated mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera finally materialized in Summer 2012. The new EOS M is built around an 18-megapixel APS-C image sensor and DIGIC 5 processor (similar in performance to the new EOS Rebel T4i DSLR). The EOS M has a new EF-M lens mount, which takes new EF-M lenses (of which there are two at introduction: the 22mm ƒ/2.0 sold with the camera and an 18- 55mm zoom). With the optional EF-EOS M adapter, the new camera can use the full range of EF and EF-S lenses for EOS DSLRs—more than 60 of them, from fisheye and superwide-angle to supertelephoto, including macro and tilt-shift lenses. The EOS M has a versatile video mode, using the same Hybrid CMOS AF system to provide Movie Servo AF, with touch-screen AF when…

dslrs over $1,000

CANON EOS 5D MARK III The EOS 5D Mark III’s new 22.3-megapixel Canon full-frame CMOS sensor provides more pixels than any other Canon DSLR, yet offers a good balance between resolution, high-ISO performance and shooting speed. A DIGIC 5+ processor (17 times more powerful than the DIGIC 4 in the 5D Mark II) makes possible the implementation of new noise-processing algorithms, on-the-fly lens chromatic-aberration correction and an improved video codec. The new sensor and processor allow an ISO range of 100-25,600, expandable to 50-102,400. Featuring the same 61-point AF system as the new flagship pro EOS-1D X and the ability to shoot those files at 6 fps, the 5D Mark III can handle action as well as static subjects. Canon’s 63-zone iFCL metering system takes into consideration brightness, color and data from…

dslrs under $1,000

CANON EOS REBEL T4i Canon’s EOS Rebel DSLRs are entry-level models, the new Rebel T4i being the 10th member of a line that began when the original Digital Rebel became the first DSLR to sell for under $1,000 in 2003. Not so ironically, the new camera—despite much greater capabilities and the rising yen vs. dollar—costs less than that first “affordable” DSLR. The EOS Rebel T4i is the top model in the Rebel line, sharing 18- megapixel resolution with a number of other EOS cameras, but featuring a new Canon CMOS sensor with phase-detection AF sensors embedded among its pixels. These are part of a new Hybrid CMOS AF system, which provides both contrast-based and phase-detection AF for live-view and video shooting—a first for a Canon DSLR. The system works with all EF…
