Celebrate your memories with the powerful
yet incredibly easy-to-use D3200
On 19th April 2012, Nikon launched their latest Digital SLR: the D3200.

The D3200 takes a step on from the D3100, increasing the resolution to 24.2 effective megapixels with their newly developed DX-format CMOS image sensor. The D3100 in comparison boasts 14.2 effective megapixels. This allows you to take extremely high quality images with the freedom to then enlarge or crop them to your preference. This image sensor also allows you to take excellent quality images in low light or of fast moving subjects, with low levels of noise due to its wide light sensitivity. The ISO ranges from 100-6400 but can be raised as high as 12,800 giving you even more flexibility in low light conditions.


Canon UK have announced the development of a new digital cinema camera capable of recording 4K-resolution (4,096 x 2,160 pixels) video. Targeting both the motion picture and high resolution digital production industries, the EOS C500 will offer 4K RAW output and will be available with Canon’s EF mount and the industry-standard PL mount.


This afternoon, Canon UK expanded on its range of Cinema EOS system cameras with the launch of the EOS-1D C. Based on the powerful core specifications of Canon’s flagship DSLR, the EOS-1D X, this camera is aimed at those who require outstanding video quality as it incorporates additional features such as 4K recording and Full HD/60p support, alongside the option of high quality stills capture.

A stylish camera designed to produce professional image quality and Full HD video from an ultra-compact body, making it small enough to fit easily into your pocket or handbag.

This morning, Canon UK announced the EOS 60Da – further expanding their DSLR line-up with a high resolution camera designed for astrophotography.

Some might remember the EOS 20Da, launched back in 2005, and the 60Da succeeds this and is designed to capture the rich red colours that are produced by emission nebulae, with a modified low pass filter that makes it more sensitive to hydrogen-alpha (Hα) wavelengths of light. And of course, the camera itself is based around the specification of the Canon EOS 60D.
