Samsung Announces NX200 Compact Interchangeable Lens Camera

IFA Berlin—Samsung has just announced the NX200 compact interchangeable lens digital camera. Coming on the heels of last year’s NX100 mirrorless compact camera, the NX200 features a 20.3-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, an ISO range of 100-12,800, full (1920×1080/30p) High Definition video, and a convenient Samsung i-Function system lens, with which photographers can make adjustments to shutter speed, aperture, exposure, white balance, and ISO via the button and ring right on the lens. The NX200 also features some of the creative filters and Magic Frame feature that we’ve seen in other Samsung compacts, including the SH100 point-and-shoot (reviewed here).

The Samsung NX200 will be available in October. Look for an upcoming hands-on look at the camera from our reporter on the ground in Berlin!

Panasonic Develops Twin-Lens 3D Digital Camera

IFA Berlin—Panasonic announced today the development of a twin-lens 3D compact digital camera with 3D High Definition video capability. The camera is called Lumix 3D, and the prototype is on display right now at IFA Berlin. The camera will shoot both 2D and 3D still images and HD and 3D HD videos. Remember when we recently reported that Samsung was looking into two-lens technology for a compact camera to help with depth of field?

According to Panasonic, “The LUMIX 3D camera’s compact size was achieved by employing two recently-developed 4x zoom lenses with thin, folded optics, which allow users to capture crisp and clear photo and video footage even from afar.”The camera is expected to be available in winter 2011/2012. See the full press release below.

Look for an upcoming hands-on look at the LUMIX 3D from our reporter on the ground in Berlin!

Sony Announces NEX-7 Interchangeable Lens Camera

 

Sony has just announced the new NEX-7 digital camera, the latest in the compact interchangeable lens lineup. Like the new a77 and a65 DSLRs announced today, the NEX-7 boasts a 24.3-megapixel Exmor APS HD CMOS image sensor, which paired with Sony’s BIONZ image processor should result in what Sony says will be “flawless image and HD video quality with very low noise and exceptionally fast shooting responses.” The NEX-7 also features “an intuitive new TRINAVI control interface,” which gives more advanced photographers the option of  “three customizable, manual controls and the ability to create images with the flexibility and precision of an advanced DSLR camera.”

The Sony NEX-7 will be available in November in a kit with an exclusive black 18-55mm zoom lens for about $1350, or as a body-only for about $1200.  See the full press release from Sony below.
