According to the one of the Japanese websites Canon is going to release 5 new cameras online. There is no clear the specs, but it is supposed that new cameras will be DSLRs, with the other three being new mirrorless models. There was only one new camera registered three weeks ago (two of the new cameras are DSLRs and three are mirrorless).View More Canon Now Has Five New Upcoming Cameras Registered Online
Focused on enthusiasts of the photo, the Canon EOS 70D camera is constructed on the basis of the image sensor like the APS-C format CMOS which permission is equal 20,2 Megapixels, and the DIGIC 5 processor +. According to the producer, Canon EOS 70D is the first-ever camera in which is used the unique technology of automatic focusing of Dual Pixel. Allegedly, this technology “provides smooth and exact autofocusing when shooting video Full HD and fast focusing when photographing in the Live View mode”. The camera received 19 points of focusing, all in a crosswise form. It allows to conduct serial shooting with a speed up to 7 fps (series length is up to 16 frames in the RAW format or to 65 frames in the JPEG format). Values of a photosensitivity of ISO 100-12800 are available to the user.View More Canon EOS 70D camera with unique technology of automatic focusing
Samsung announced Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom — the device representing a hybrid of the camera and the smartphone. Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom possesses all functions of the smartphone, but at the same time is allocated with a sliding lens with 10x optical zoom, xenon flash and a 16-megapixel photomatrix. The lens is located on the back panel. Range of its focal lengths are from 24 to 240 millimeters, and the range of values of a diaphragm are from 1/3,1 to 1/6,3. The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom chamber is capable to do to four pictures in a second. Thanks to technology of optical stabilization the user can receive accurate photos even in the conditions of a lack of light. The battery of Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom can hold 2,330mAh.View More Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom Smartphone and camera in one device
The engineers created the wide-angle digital camera with a super wide point of view, having copied structure of eyes of insects, having relieved pictures of distortions at the edges of the image. According to the scientists the most important and revolutionary part of this camera is bent electronics on a convex surface. Practically all electronic devices are made of silicon, and silicon is very fragile, that doesn’t allow to bend it as we want. Thanks to special “stretching” conductors, the scientists could bend system and place it on a convex surface.
Creating the wide-angle digital camera the scientists were guided by the device of eyes of insects. So, visual bodies of insects consist of a set of the elements, which number can reach up to 20 thousand. Each such facet represents a separate organ of vision with own lens and photoreceptors. The similar device of eyes gives to arthropods improbably big point of view, ultrahigh sensitivity to movement and the infinite depth of sight.
For a long time the scientists try to create analog of a facet eye, however its “copying” always faces a problem of fragility of its components. Scientists from university of the State of Colorado in Bouldera bypassed this obstacle, having pasted lenses on stretching plastic and having connected photosensitive matrixes with help of the conductors braided in a snake.View More Eyes of insects helped scientists to create the ideal wide-angle digital camera
