Nikon D7100

“Light and compact for a feature-packed and durable Magnesium body, it delivers superior DX performance to take your photography to the next level.
By not employing an optical low pass filter (OLPF), the D7100 makes the most of its 24.1-megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor to sharply capture even the finest textures in crisp high resolution.
Its 51-point autofocus (AF) system offers you rapid and ultra-accurate image capture at professional level. Weather and dust resistant, with magnesium alloy top and rear covers, this high-spec D-SLR shoots continuously at 6 fps, gives an extra telephoto effect with innovative 1.3x crop function and has ISO sensitivity of 100-6400, bringing superb results in poorly-lit environments or fast-moving action.

Find out more and give your photographic passion an adrenaline injection with the exceptionally powerful D7100.”

Canon EOS-1D X professional DSLR announcement and overview

Via Scoop.itEverything Photographic

“Canon has announced the launch of the EOS-1D X, its latest flagship professional DSLR. The 18MP camera is built around a full-frame sensor capable of shooting at up to 14 frames per second (12fps with AF), allowing it to replace both the 1D Mark IV and 1DS Mark III in Canon’s lineup. Despite looking like previous 1D cameras, it’s been extensively reworked (it includes more professional video features than any other Canon DSLR), so we took the opportunity to talk to Canon USA’s Technical Advisor, Chuck Westfall about the camera and its features. The 1D X won’t be available until March 2012, so examples are not widely available yet. We’ve been extensively briefed on the camera and, in combination with an exclusive interview with Westfall, have prepared an overview of the camera.”
