Until now, trail and wildlife cameras have been somewhat limited in their field of view. Meet the Moultrie Panoramic 150, a camera featuring 3 PIR motion sensors that together cover an extremely wide 150-degree angle of view, revolutionizing trail photography.
Sony has announced a new long zoom, high-performance point-and-shoot camera: the Cyber-shot HX50V Digital Camera. With a 20.4MP BSI Exmor R CMOS sensor and the BIONZ Image Processor, sharp imagery, low-light sensitivity, quick performance, and fast autofocus speeds are part and parcel.
Have you ever wanted to create massive panoramic images with ridiculous amounts of detail? Gigapan's Epic series robotic camera mounts are designed expressly for that purpose. In this video, Kelby Media's Larry Becker gets his feet wet with panoramic photography by reviewing the Gigapan Epic Pro, which is designed for larger DSLR/lens combinations.
Sony has just announced the newest camera in its line of mirrorless cameras: the NEX-5R. Following suit of its predecessors, this camera is a compact, interchangeable-lens camera with a large APS-C-sized sensor. This combination provides a bit of both worlds; the portability of a compact point and shoot with the control and image quality reminiscent of a DSLR.
Just over a year ago Sony introduced its first mirrorless camera systems, the NEX-3 and NEX-5, to a very receptive public. To almost everyone’s amazement, Sony was able to design a highly functional camera that was both smaller than many point-and-shoot cameras, yet contained a comparatively monstrous APS-C format imaging sensor.
No matter how you look at it, Sony’s second-generation NEX-7 is impressive on all fronts. Though smaller than many point-and-shoot cameras, the Sony alpha NEX-7 packs more resolving power than many, if not most full-size DSLRs.
Fuji has announced a replacement camera for its popular F550 EXR compact superzoom digital camera; the Fujifilm Finepix F600 EXR. Fuji’s newest compact superzoom features a ½" 16MP back-illuminated EXR CMOS sensor, a 3.0” 460,000-dot LCD and a narrow profile, 24-360mm equivalent zoom lens.
Back in the early days of photography, panoramic photographs, which by definition are wide-field, unbroken sweeps of scenery, were captured using cameras with pivoting lens turrets that “painted” the image across a wide sheet of film as the lens rotated from left to right (or vice versa).
