As sensors reach increasingly high resolutions, Nikon is removing anti-alias filters from their DSLRs. First, they started at the high-end with the D800E, twin of the D800  minus the anti-alias filter. This proliferated down to the D7100 and D5300, already an entry-level model, until finally arriving to their most basic entry-level DSLR, the Nikon D3300, which is the only one in its class to be without an anti-alias filter.

A review of the Nikon D3300 was just published on Neocamera. This entry-level DSLR features a 24 megpaixels APS-C CMOS sensor with ISO 100-12800 sensitivity range, expandable to ISO 25600. This is paired with a fast internal processor which lets it shoot continuously at 5 FPS and capture full 1080p HD video at 60 FPS.

Nikon D3300

This DSLR is quite compact and light-weight. It offers a simple user-interface with a single control-dial and few external controls. As usual though, it offers full manual-controls and a hot-shoe for external lighting. There are creative controls with scene modes and guided operation for beginners.

The key to the new anti-alias-filter-free sensor is that it resolves the maximum sharpness a lens lets through. The D3300 has a Nikon F lens-mount without AF-coupling and therefore requires a lens with built-in motor to autofocus. It also needs very high-quality lenses to take full-advantage of. This is where the low-price of the D3300 gets overridden since such high-end lenses are costly.’

Olympus has been pushing the limits of mirrorless cameras with each new flagship model and their latest, the OM-D E-M1, is no exception. They tookk everything of the highly-acclaimed and ground-breaking Olympus OM-D E-M5 reviewed here and put it all in a new freezeproof and still fully weather-sealed body with a spectacular 2.4 EVF having 0.74X magnification and, of course, 100% coverage.

The current flagship Olympus OM-D E-M1 is designed to bridge the Micro Four-Thirds and full-size Four-Thirds lineup by bringing built-in Phase-Detect AF on a revised 16 megapixels CMOS sensor with no anti-alias filter. Together with Olympus’ weather-sealed Four-Thirds-to-Micro Four-Thirds, the OM-D E-M1 can focus legacy lenses they way they were intended and still remain fully weather-sealed.

The just reviewed Olympus OM-D E-M1 is still without a doubt a mirrorless camera. Even with its deep hand-grip, it remains compact and considerable less bulky than a comparable DSLR when using Micro Four-Thirds lenses which are plentiful and quite versatile.

Neocamera published a full-review of the Olympus OM-D E-M1 which should be particularly interesting to advanced photographers and professionals considering the move to a mirrirless system.
