This snapper’s biggest selling point: it looks like something Batman would strap to his utility belt. The EX-G1 is a 12MP pocket-friendly camera, that’s waterproof down to 3m or submersed for up to 60min. It can handle temperatures down to -10 degrees, and will survive drops of 2m. Other features include a 16:9 movie mode, microSD storage and a 3x optical zoom. Definitely worth getting for your next spelunking trip.
We’ve got a special place in our hearts for any gadget we can punt across the room and survive. That’s why we’re currently googley eyed over Fuji’s latest toughcam, the Z33WP. This tank-like 10MP compact packs a respectable 2.7in LCD, with 3x optical zoom and face detection. More importantly, it’s waterproof down to 10M and will survive a chomp from Jaws. Sure to come in handy on your Christmas trip to Amity Island.
Giving into our masculine desires, we’ve put up another photo of Megan Fox. But don’t worry, there’s a very important tech-angle attached. Following up from last year’s Esquire shoot, Megan’s signed up for another one. This time, she’ll be filmed using Red’s Epic camera at a 5K resolution (to put that in perspective, Full HD is just under 2k). There’s a standard definition preview, here.
And just in case you don’t recognize the luscious lovely in the trench coat above, we’ve included a bonus picture (she’s obviously just woken up in bed, or something…)
Sony has released details on its latest CyberShot line-up to hit the Middle East. Both pack the same ultra-slim smarts that we’ve come to expect from the pocketable camera line, but with a few interesting extras. The DSC-TX1 (in pink) and DSC-WX1 (in black) shoot 10.2MP stills, with a new sweep panorama mode (great for landscapes) and quirky named BIONZ imaging processor for clearer, crisper pictures at high ISO settings. The DSC-TX1 crams a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens beneath its slim frame and the DSC-WX1 has a 24mm wide-angle Sony G lens (with a wider aperture of F/2.4). Both are available early next week.
More info and full release after the jump.
Semi-pro photographers rejoice! Canon’s EOS 7D is very official, and looks very tasty indeed. With dual DIGIC processors for 8fps shooting, an 18MP sensor, full 1080p video capabilities, all-new 19-point focus system, built-in electronic level (for perfectly framed shots) and 3in LCD screen, its got so many more functions that we’ve lost count. We did hold onto the price though, and when it hits the region (sometime early November) it’ll cost around the US$1,700 mark.
The latest Sony Handycam packs a rather exciting surprise behind its bland black exterior. The HDR-XR520 has a 240GB internal hard drive, capable of recording up to 101 hours of HD video (1080i). It takes 12MP stills, and will even capture 8MP images while recording video. It has a decent CMOS sensors and optical shake-reduction, and is available right now for US$1,280.
