Kelly Moore camera bag review

In 2009 Kelly Moore released a range of bags which have now become a worldwide success. These aren’t just any bags though; they are a range of stylish, versatile and very colourful SLR bags that offer ‘as much style as they do function’. I’m thrilled to announce that these bags are now available at Park Cameras and I’ve been putting them through their paces this week!

Canon EOS 5D Mark III - the benefits

It’s pretty hard to keep any new product under wraps these days, even the mighty Apple have been struggling to control leaks but Canon did remarkably well are keep hush before the EOS 5D Mark III came out.

You might be forgiven for being somewhat disappointed if you’re a 5D MKII owner because on the face of it certainly if you’re in the habit of megapixel counting (in which case you seriously need to get out the house) there’s not a “huge” improvement. What you should really be looking at is how the resolution is handled and captured but more importantly how the camera performs.

This lens has been developed with the support and feedback of professional, advanced amateur and entry-level photographers to help develop new products that meet photographer’s demands.

Canon announce the new EOS 650D

Today, Canon announced the new EOS 650D.

This is an 18.0 megapixel Digital SLR with a host of features allowing you to capture great quality photos or HD movies with no trouble at all and is ideal for those who are either new to the EOS system, or wish to upgrade from an older series camera.

Within the EOS 650D, you will find an 18.0 megapixel APS-C sized sensor along with Canon’s DIGIC 5 processor that has been brought across from their more professional cameras such as the EOS 5D Mark III or their high end compact, the PowerShot G1 X. The processor and the sensor work alongside one another to achieve high levels of performance in terms of processing speed and power, as well as being able to achieve greater noise reduction at higher ISOs something that is useful particularly in low-light shooting. The sensor, developed and manufactured by Canon, is their first sensor to feature both imaging auto focus pixels on the same chip, giving you stunning detail when taking stills, and tracking autofocus in your movies.

Newly announced: Sony DSC-RX100

Today Sony UK have announced a new compact camera aimed towards the more experienced photographer featuring 20.2 megapixels and a massive 1” CMOS sensor: the first of its kind in a compact digital camera. Not only that, but it is packaged in a sophisticated, pocket-sized design allowing you to take the camera with you where maybe a DSLR is not so convenient.

With the larger image sensor size that the RX100 features in comparison to most other compact digital cameras, is will capture more light and reproduce the image in stunning detail, particularly in low-light conditions. This is helped by way of the large f1.8 aperture on the Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens.

Similar to the construction of Sony’s Alpha range of lenses, the lens on the RX100 features a seven- bladed circular aperture making it easy to produce pro-style ‘bokeh’ effects, with subjects in sharp focus against a smoothly-blurred background. To ensure the lens fits in with the compact styling of the camera without sacrificing any optical quality, it features an Advanced Aspherical glass element.
