CAM­ERAS

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - DELL XPS 14Z -

Sony is ex­pected to launch a hy­brid Al­phanex mount cam­era, com­bin­ing the best of its Al­pha and NEX se­ries. Re­ports sug­gest the cam­era, de­signed like the NEX-7, will have built-in com­pat­i­ble E-mount with no need for ex­ter­nal adapters, a full frame sen­sor and the new gen­er­a­tion OLED viewfinder. Though de­tails are awaited, there are re­ports that Fuji will also launch sim­i­lar cam­eras un­der the X se­ries. There will be more com­pe­ti­tion in the com­pact seg­ment with Canon also ex­pected to fol­low Nikon and Pen­tax into this realm of in­ter­change­able-lens, mir­ror­less cam­eras. In In­dia, Nikon 1 J1 and V1, both highly ver­sa­tile cam­eras with snappy aut­o­fo­cus and su­per-fast shoot­ing speed, will be avail­able in the sec­ond quar­ter of the year.

“The move from 2D to 3D is al­most as sig­nif­i­cant as the shift from black & white to colour,” ex­plains Seiji Ha­man­ishi, As­sis­tant Di­rec­tor, ICP, Canon In­dia. “Stereo pho­tog­ra­phy has ex­isted for a long time, but it is dif­fi­cult to cre­ate and view the images. In 2012, 3D will come home with more and more man­u­fac­tur­ers jump­ing onto the 3D band­wagon.”

There will also be in­de­struc­tible mem­ory cards that can with­stand sud­den im­pact, drops, water and ex­treme range in tem­per­a­ture.
