Nikon D5 Review

Nikon D5 XQD

The Nikon D5 takes the already winning formula of the D4S and upgrades its imaging pipeline completely while maintaining nearly identical ergonomics, albeit with a few welcome improvements. Its new 20 megapixels Full-Frame CMOS sensor with high-speed read-out offers a unique ISO 100-102,400 sensitivity range which expands to ISO 50 – 3,276,800, three stops higher than any other camera on the market. The mechanical shutter can shoot continuously at 14 FPS and the mirror mechanism at 12 FPS.

4K video makes its debut on a Nikon DSLR in the D5. Ultra HD can be recorded at 30 FPS from a 1.5X crop-area of the sensor. The full sensor area can be used to capture 1080p video at 60 FPS too. This camera includes a number of high-end video features, including external stereo input and output with a pair of mini-jacks. This camera is a powerhouse with dual grips, double dual control-dials, dual 8-way joysticks and a large 100% coverage viewfinder with built-in shutter. The huge battery in the D5 can power it for a whopping 3780 shots on a single charge.

Yesterday, a detailed review of the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II was published at Neocamera. This updated base-level OM-D features a revised 16 megapixels Four-Thirds CMOS sensor without anti-alias filter and new TruePic VII processor, plus 5-axis image stabilization built right into the body.

As member of the OM-D family, th E-M10 Mark II is anything but entry-level! It includes a high-resolution EVF of 2.4 megapixels, 0.62X magnification and 100% coverage with Eye-Start sensor. The body has plenty of direct controls, including dual control-dials and a traditional mode-dial. This mirrorless is kept remarkably compact and light-weight. To keep it smaller than other OM-D, this one is not weather-sealed.

The Fuji X-Pro2 is the newest member of the X-family of mirrorless cameras. It takes what Fuji started with the original X-Pro1 to the next level with a third-generation X-Trans CMOS III sensor of 24 megapixels and a new professional-grade weathersealed body.

Fuji blended numerous technology to balance performance and features of the X-Pro2 with: a hybrid viewfinder, a hybrid autofocus system, a hybrid shutter and hybrid design! This camera can switch between an electronic and optical viewfinder, has a 169-point Phase-Detect AF system and 273-Point Contrast-Detection, an electronic shutter reaching 1/32000s, a mechanical shutter for slow speed up to 30s or 1 hour Bulb exposures and a retro-style design with analog and digital controls.

Panasonic originally invented the travel-zoom category with their TZ1, the first compact camera with a long zoom With a standard 10X optical zoom. In 2006, this was considered a pocket-size ultra-zoom! Real ultra-zooms are now much larger and often sport lenses that reach beyond 1000mm. Many travel-zooms followed, including Canon’s high-successful SX100 which was gradually replaced by a series of digital cameras which pushed the zoom further and diminished features over-time, losing precious manual-control along the way.

At CES 2006 earlier this year, Panasonic returned to the travel-zoom mold by delivering yet another compact camera with a 10X optical zoom and dull manual-controls They also took their new Panasonic ZS100 to the next level with a first-in-class 20 megapixels 1″ CMOS sensor and built-in EVF with Eye-Start Sensor, while simultaneously launching a standard-sensor sibling, the Panasonic ZS60 with an 18 megapixels 1/2.3″ CMOS and a 30X optical zoom lens which pretty much balances out the compromise.

Pansonic Lumx DMC-ZS100 Review

Given its level of efficient controls, including dual control-dials, a traditional mode dial and 4 highly-customizable buttons, plus the image-quality previously seen from recent premium compacts, the Panasonic Lumix ZS100 is truly the first premium travel-zoom. It is a highly versatile camera with a long zoom in a compact body.

Read the detailed Neocamera Panasonic ZS100 Review to find out how its image-quality, speed, ergonomics, usability perform.As always, there is full gallery straight from the ZS100 at every supported ISO sensitivity, so that readers can make out their mind on image-quality from real-world samples.

Canon EOS Rebel T6s

A detailed review of the Canon EOS Rebel T6s was recently published at Neocamera. This is a unique member of the Rebel family that brings efficient photographic controls into a relatively lightweight design. Dual control-dials, a top status LCD, built-in WiFi and NFC make it quick photograph and share images with the T6s.

The Canon T6s and T6i were introduced together with a new 24 megapixels APS-C CMOS sensor with a Hybrid AF III system which includes 19 all-cross-type Phase-Detect AF-points. The sensor has an ISO 100 to 12800 sensitivity range, expandable to 25600, and is paired with a fast Digic 6 processor, allowing it to shoot at 5 FPS even at full-resolution.
