Nikon has announced the new COOLPIX L830 34x superzoom point and shoot camera. COOLPIX L830 is the successor of COOLPIX L820 announced last year. It’s equipped with a 16 megapixel BSI-CMOS sensor and a tilting 3.0-inch 921k-dot LCD. The L830 records full HD 1080p video with new Hybrid Vibration Reduction stabilization available while recording video.
Canon has just announced the PowerShot N100, which it’s branding as a ‘Story Camera’. The main feature that gives the camera this moniker is its rear-facing 25mm equiv. camera, which can take a photo or video of the photographer at the moment the shutter release is pressed (this works for stills and video, as well). The image from the rear-camera then put into one of the corners of the actual image/video that was taken. The N100’s ‘Story Highlights’ feature can put together a video montage of recent events.
Canon has announced the PowerShot SX600 HS, a small camera with large zoom. The Powershot SX600 HS featured 16 MP sensor, with DIGIC 4+ processor. It has 18x zoom, Wi-Fi and NFC.
According to DCfever’s facebook status, Canon will have an announcement on January 9, 2014 at Hong Kong. There is no info yet which product will be announced.
According to CR, at the coming CES show in January 2014, Canon will announced several new PowerShot cameras to replace old ones.
Nikon just announced the Coolpix P7800, which sits at the top of its compact camera lineup, replacing last year’s P7700 as flagship zoom camera. The P7800 is extremely similar to its nominal predecessor, the most notable change being the addition of an electronic viewfinder.
For those with a short memory, P-series cameras prior to the P7700 had optical viewfinders. The P7700 got rid of that entirely, but gave users a fully articulating LCD in exchange. On the Coolpix P7800 the viewfinder has returned, in electronic form. The EVF has 921,000 dots and covers 100% of the frame.
Other specifications are more or less unchanged compared to the P7700. The camera is built around a 28-200mm (equivalent) F2-4 zoom lens, and features a fully-articulating rear LCD screen, and has plenty of manual control and exposure options, at an MSRP of $549.99.
