Hands-on Review

The Fujifilm X-E1 is a well designed, retro-styled mirrorless camera that follows on the heels of the extremely popular X-Pro1 model. This is a little sibling of that camera and, although it has an electronic viewfinder rather than the X-Pro 1's optical piece, the X-E1 shares the 16.3 APS-C sensor and the Fujifilm X mount of the X-Pro1.

The D4 is Nikon's top-of-the-line professional DSLR. With a 16.1 MP sensor, this full-frame-equipped camera has large photosites that enable great low-light performance. In addition, the camera's native ISO range goes from 100 to 12800.

The LCD screen on most DSLR cameras doesn’t exceed 3.2” in size, which is a pretty tight space in which to judge the quality of your work. However, if you shoot near an Apple iPad, or a Mac computer, a new product called the iUSBportCAMERA makes it possible to instantly send your images wirelessly to their screens.

In September, Sigma announced a reorganization of their lens classification guidelines. They outlined three categories within which all future lenses would be placed, the logic being that this will simplify the selection process for the buyer and improve quality expectations on both the manufacturer’s and consumer’s side of the equation.

Canon's new EOS-M represents the company's first foray into the world of large-sensor mirrorless cameras. The compact EOS-M features an 18Mp APS-C sensor (the same one that's in the Rebel T4i DSLR), and it comes with a wide-angle 22mm f/2.8 STM lens with a stepping motor for continuous, quiet autofocus that's especially helpful when shooting 1080p video.

GigaPan technology first made a big splash during President Obama’s inauguration in 2009, where it was used to capture a rather phenomenal photograph of the crowds that gathered in the Washington Mall. Wolf Blitzer was like a kid in a candy store, and kept looking in on the progress of the picture as it evolved. Since then, amazing GigaPan images have been used to capture Major League Baseball games, the 2012 London Olympics, the Democratic National Convention, the Republican National Convention, the Discovery Space Shuttle and the Mars Rover Curiosity.

Pentax is serious about making top of the line DSLRs. All you have to do to prove it to yourself is pick up the new K-7. The camera body - weatherproofed magnesium-alloy body panels wrapped around a stainless steel chassis - fills the hand with a very solid presence and lacks the polycarbonate feel of many lesser-priced DSLRs. And then you have what can only be described as a serious list of features.
