Bought a camera, we all need to buy those accessories it? First, the card is certainly not small, it is recommended to buy 8G or 16G is enough; UV lens also proposed purchase, is mainly used to protect the lens; another must come to a camera bag, depending on your personal preferences and the number of lenses to choose like; many of my friends worry about the battery charge power, in fact A6000 via USB charging, you just need to be able to carry a charge treasure charge, do not buy a second battery; As a tripod or other learning some time to buy it. The following are specific recommendations:

Memory Card: SanDisk 16GB Class10. Generally 8G and 16G have been sufficient, and very affordable.

UV Mirror: The main purpose is to protect your UV mirror lens, I am more forgetful, afraid to go out outdoor photo with the lens cap to lose, so they simply do not bring it. At this time a UV role on the show, it is a good way to protect my camera! But I suggest that you buy a cheap UV lens can be a challenge, but also pay attention to the size of UV mirror lens fits your size.

Camera bag: If not for a long time to bear, you can buy cute shoulder bag or package; But if takes a long time to bear, plus there are several lenses only if, it is recommended to buy a shoulder bag, back up higher comfort Some. Recommend this Rhema EMB-D2330, relatively affordable.

Tripod: While I personally think that just started to learn photography tripod is not required, but if you want to buy a place of attachment, or what you intend to shoot the stars, you may need a tripod. IT15 recommended here Benro tripod travel reflexed, very lightweight, and can be five seconds turned monopod.

Canon EOS M2 push Gulf blue color version by designer

Female users are no anti-camera EOS M product line mainly target consumer groups, released at the beginning of Canon Canon EOS M2 will take this into account, first priority to launch the white version, and subsequently launched in the domestic black and pink, the company has recently added Gulf blue version.

In fact, Canon has launched the 2013 version of the Gulf Blue EOS M, color by Japanese designer Chie Morimoto, blue symbolizes the sea and brown land mean, now Canon again this color scheme transplant gave EOS M2.

30x optical zoom card machines, Canon SX700 HS Review

Portable telephoto camera is able to best solution as an entry-level home camera, which is its biggest feature is to provide high portability but also with a high zoom magnification lens, not to mention everyday shooting, for home users use it, it is the preferred equipment when traveling. Although the card machine is no longer popular, but portable telephoto cameras in the home user market is still very popular.

Canon SX700 HS uses 25mm wide angle and 30x optical zoom combined with an equivalent focal length equivalent to 25-750mm, but it also has a Multi SR Zoom function, the special needs, this feature can also be good to meet user telephoto needs while carrying iS optical image stabilizer. Both shooting scenes of vast scenes, more distant views can be presented in front of close.

Canon SX700 HS is equipped with 16.1 million effective pixels 1/2.3 inch high speed CMOS image sensor, and is equipped with the latest image processor DIGIC 6. The pictures bright, rich layers, either landscape or portrait are vivid and lifelike. The machine is the biggest bright spot lies in its wireless transmission function has been further improved, while two have NFC and WiFi communication module further strengthened, photo transfer and reliability of remote shooting. Even if the camera can also be easily taken away from the body, or when the self-timer photo shoot is absolutely weapon 一枚. Here we take a look at this camera looks it.

Canon SX700 HS overall appearance of the display

Canon SX700HS overall appearance of the stable atmosphere, tough and compact body design. The whole body with a metal material, stronger and more durable, but also the full sense of weight. Front of the camera, the handle portion protruding ergonomic shooting can grab the camera more stable and ensure the success rate of shooting.

Portable and efficient, is the first impression I got SX700 HS to it. With small pink elephant, can be more intuitive to see in the open state, all the stretching and contraction of the lens in the camera’s status. Portability is still quite good, oh. Compare Unfortunately, the SX700 HS uses 1060 mA lithium battery, battery life is slightly less, especially electricity consumed faster when shooting video, it is recommended that you buy a backup battery.

Canon SX700 HS menu description

Just contact this camera users, if you do not have a certain “playing machine” experience, may have a variety of professional and manual exposure mode button, Washing, etc., resulting in a confused feeling, just to figure out the aid Baidu meaning of these letters, the actual operation, SX700 HS is still very easy to use, menu interface option is not that much, the corresponding bit of the top of the dial twisting machine, you can get the desired mode, very convenient.

As can be seen, the Canon SX700 HS outstanding performance capabilities this camera shooting at the wide end, but to the most remote after 30 times zoom (750mm), the quality has dropped, but the success rate of AF telephoto end is not as wide-angle end, easy Focus unsuccessful situation. But as a home portable telephoto camera, shooting at night, but also to have such a performance is already not easy, for to do during the day, when lit, the effect is still very good.

Canon SX700 HS is not only has a powerful ability to take pictures, its camera capabilities are also very prominent, the upper body of a button camera and dual microphones, is that your handy when shooting video. In particular, its dual microphone design, very clear the scene to capture the sounds of the actual use of small series, the conclusion is that it’s definitely more than the same door cellular phones, full-frame SLR 5D3 more kind. Moreover, with 30 optical zoom lens, SX700 HS is entirely possible when a portable compact DV to use.

SX700 HS ISO test comparison stall

Canon SX700 HS is equipped with 16.1 million effective pixels 1/2.3 inch high speed CMOS image sensor, and is equipped with the latest image processor DIGIC 6. Sensitivity range from ISO 100 up to ISO 3200, then how Canon SX700 HS quality performance under different speed of it? Please let us look at the following test it.


Canon 1D X and upgrade transmission 5D Mark III next year

Northlight Images Canon is expected early next year will have to update two flagship professional SLR models, respectively, EOS-1D X Mark II and EOS 5D Mark IV. And we aggregated from NI EOS SLR schedule (below) can be seen, the senior full-frame SLR product cycle is about 12 quarters (up to 17), while the EOS-1D X, 5D3 will be updated to normal timeline. Sources pointed out that two new models will join the new EOS 7D Mark II sensor technology used.

EOS-1D X and EOS 5D Mark III is Canon SLR camp’s two top products were released in October 2011, March 2012. The former is equipped with 18.1 million pixel full-frame CMOS sensor, Dual DIGIC 5 + image processing engine, the EOS 5D Mark III uses 22.3 million pixel full-frame CMOS sensor with DIGIC 5 + image processor.

Canon released a single dedicated micro Tamron 18-200mm lens new

Tamron released a mini interchangeable lens for Canon digital cameras * big zoom lens 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 Di III VC, this lens is designed for owners of small and APC-C format SLR cameras of the same size image sensor Mirrorless interchangeable lens digital camera design.

Lens focal length of 18-200mm, weight 460g, 62mm filter diameter, this specifically for mirrorless interchangeable lens digital camera with a big zoom lens designed for lightweight, compact features, while laudable equipped with Tamron VC (shake compensation) institutions, from 18mm wide angle to 200mm telephoto can easily handheld shooting. Uses two LD (low dispersion) lens, 3 aspherical glass lens casting, an XR (high refractive index) lens and a composite aspherical lens, to minimize color aberration.

18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 Di III VC for the mirrorless interchangeable lens digital camera tailored metallic design of black and silver options. AF drive motor uses a stepper motor way better contrast detection AF mode with the fuselage equipped to improve the AF performance when shooting video. And to support full-time manual focus function (DMF), after completion autofocus fine manual fine-tuning. New products expected to be available later this month, there were black and silver two versions, priced at 80,000 yen.

Panasonic FZ1000 real machine

After the initial parameter comparison is easy to see, though not a constant f/2.8 aperture throughout the way to do not only with mid-level DSLR shoulder screen, but Panasonic FZ1000 configuration was more balanced than the Sony RX10, but also cheaper over two thousand yuan. So huge gap in price is because the imaging quality difference?

Seen yesterday Photography Blog readily captured using Panasonic FZ1000 proofs, today we look at professional website ePHOTOzine real machine atlas published and really making proofs it.

It should be noted that, because the camera has not been officially listed, ePHOTOzined get just testing the prototype, and its actual performance with the listed versions there will be some differences. Panasonic official requirements should temporarily unavailable full-size documents can only provide 2048 × 1365 resolution photos.

Panasonic 1 inch sensor telephoto camera FZ1000 exposure

Digicame-Info broke the news that Panasonic will soon release a 1-inch sensor digital camera telephoto FZ1000, Venus image processor, equipped with the equivalent 25-400mm f/2.8-4 lens, the maximum continuous shooting speed of 12fps, built-0.39 “2.36 million dot electronic viewfinder painting, and 4K video recording.

It is reported that the camera lens is used in 11 groups of 15 optical structure, built five aspherical lenses. Other features include 3 “920k-dot LCD screen, equipped with DFD spatial recognition technology focus, the shortest time to focus only 0.09s, supports peak manual focus, support for RAW, and built Wi-Fi/NFC wireless capabilities.

DI guess the camera is FZ200 successor models, it is worth mentioning that the FZ200 uses the equivalent 24-600mm f/2.8 lens, and released almost simultaneously with the LX7 currently have reached updated timeline. Combined with the recent rumors LX8 difficult to speculate, but also 1 LX8 should adopt the “Sensor Panasonic finally two years later began to test the water a” big end portable camera, perhaps with FZ1000, LX8 Sony RX10, RX100 series of direct competition.

High cost SX170 IS Canon telephoto machine

Canon Powershot SX170 IS is the latest release in autumn 2013 launch of a compact digital camera, and is an upgraded version of the Canon SX160 IS routine of. Canon Powershot SX170 IS uses a 1/2.3 inch, 16.1 million effective pixel CCD image sensor, consistent with its predecessor, in addition to Canon Powershot SX170 IS is also equipped with a 16x optical zoom lens 一枚 function, focal length of 28 – 448mm, the digital zoom can be achieved with nearly 1000mm telephoto capability, performance tough enough on SX160 IS 720P HD video capture has also been inherited.

A Canon Powershot SX170 IS first post-test

For slightly touched photography friends will know, camera card has been somewhat lacking in maneuverability, but many products under the Canon stratification can find a suitable machine. Wherein the portable digital camera category where there are individual representative SX series, where users can find products corresponding to different user needs, there are a number of high-end machines (like a long time does not appear flagship product), as well as double-digit three-digit product, which is a three-digit machine although at a lower entry-level, however, the G series camera card aside from the sensor to the lens SX series camera hardware is closer to the top of the card.

SX Series essence in the minds of users have left a high-profile, large telephoto, synonymous with a low price. Although the G Series champion in camera card, but the entry-level SX series are still occupy most of the market share, Canon will not easily give up, but can not just give up.

With increasingly powerful mobile phone photography, portable camera card in front of the plight becomes more and more severe. If you want to catch the consumer’s appetite, then you must want SLR cameras, single-camera or even a cell phone does not have the features to start, before losing the ability to protect the site. In recent years, the demand for more and more cameras, especially in the camera card ranks, the more prominent if the product is not selling, it is difficult to get consumers. In recent years, in addition to SLR cameras, single-camera, is another very popular with consumers camera telephoto machine types.

Telephoto machine name suggests is to have a relatively high multiple optical zoom capability, consumers do not need to change their stations to shoot near or distant objects. Canon in recent years introduced many popular telephoto camera products, the latest generation of its Hirohide series products Canon Powershot SX170 IS also came to our side.

Second, the overall appearance of the Canon Powershot SX170 IS Review

Canon Powershot SX170 IS and SX160 HS in appearance more similar, the continuation of the SX series of classic design, the front there is still designed to be very simple, positive elements to be only a handful of huge 16x optical zoom lens occupies nearly half of the area, and the coating around the lens with red primary color contrasts. Compared SX160 IS sleek design, the Canon Powershot SX170 IS is positive people feel more Founder, particularly marginal position is not a sleek sides, replaced by a water chestnut design. The same metallic body with black, silver, red 3 colors optional, the songce version is red.

The back is a 3-inch 230,000 pixel display pixel LCD display and a number of function keys. Compared to some of the terms of a compact camera cards, physical keys Canon Powershot SX170 IS area ready for users is still relatively large, only a proportion of the back button has accounted for nearly one-third, which can make every Canon Powershot SX170 IS The relatively large keys done to prevent inadvertently. Similarly, the key process is also designed to cater to the frequent use of touch-screen users. Notably, Canon specifically for the user to keep the top of the screen a small space, the user can prevent the case mistakenly struck by the rapid shooting mode dial, the design is very intimate.

Given the decision to locate the SX series models are not thin line through points. Canon Powershot SX170 IS’s body volume of 108 × 71 × 43.9mm (excluding protrusions), compared to the SX160 IS is 111.0 × 72.5 × 44.1 毫米 more then a small number; addition weighs 251g (including battery and memory card) compared with 243 grams of weight has increased, but the actual operation is not too obvious feeling. But even so the Canon Powershot SX170 IS is relatively small in the SX series models the (comparative sense though with the card machine body is really not). Top is the mode dial, power switch keyboard and function lever.

Also included at the bottom exterior of the fuselage are designed with a matte texture, highlighting the atmospheric minimalist style. Overall compared to the previous generation of products and changes in the appearance of the part is not especially prominent, the general design style and layout are basically the same, in fact, in the SX series of such hardware layout has become a certain routine, so even if there is overlap Department is not surprising. But such distortion, the overall feel is always good.

Third, the Canon Powershot SX170 IS introduce local appearance

Previous article talked about the problem of the lens, the Canon Powershot SX170 IS as an upgrade though but not much on the lens configuration changes, perhaps because of cost considerations, SX160 IS is an upgraded version of the Canon Powershot SX170 IS is equipped with 一枚16 optical zoom lens, the focal length of 5.0-80mm (35mm equivalent focal length of approximately 28-448mm), aperture of F3.5-5.9, this lens appears on the predecessor indeed a very cost-effective, mid-range lenses are law-abiding, But to the upgraded version also uses the same lens, the level of contrast becomes behind, even though we will be seen as the Canon Powershot SX170 IS predecessor patched version. In actual use, in addition to the zoom magnification and intelligent IS and not too bright spot outside, just from the parameters concerned is a very practical focus lens.

The same button on the top of the fuselage also be arranged in a similar layout, the difference is only in the upper right side of the SX160 IS a towering black shell was replaced in line with the fuselage red (in fact, Xiao Bian also in the evaluation SX160 IS reason to think this piece of black design). Mode dial gear designed to keep the same strain with the SX series, the operation buttons on the right side top of the camera, and users can easily be carried with one hand and the shutter mode and switch operation.

I believe the evaluation was seen SX160 IS friends will feel its use AA batteries very surprised, although retro feeling full, but as a practical camera cards, so bring an additional burden on the user and endurance power enough to force (ie uses rechargeable AA batteries) the performance advantage is not to be covered by the rest. Canon Powershot SX170 IS supports the model NB-6LH, 1060 mA lithium battery capacity when, with lithium battery technology continues to mature, in fact, the advantages of AA batteries do not seem very obvious, will be replaced by a rechargeable battery type of lithium battery design, so both light and can guarantee a better life, more than just the user will be able to dispense with a backup power life worries.

In flash, the Canon SX160 IS dedicated to providing a manually open flash button (in the fuselage behind the top of the screen), but to the Canon Powershot SX170 IS has found the button disappears, the upgrade for the original Canon fuselage This optional buttons removed, because even without this button can still open (but not recommended), is replaced by the user directly mention the flash. Configuration, the official website of the flash configuration did not elaborate, small flash index is probably around GN7, as an emergency is good. In addition, when power is not sufficient to use fast charging (the lamp itself may also be hardware limitations), so after using the flash when shooting or wait a few seconds to charge.

Fourth, the Canon Powershot SX170 IS features and upgrades points

1, the battery replacement program – the root cause of high-endurance
Since lithium battery technology develops to a certain level to gradually fade rechargeable batteries nickel-chromium-field image of the product life solutions, power configuration scheme of digital imaging products has always been a designer needs to overcome the problem. Since SX160 IS costs and design needs, using AA batteries as a power scheme is really small series was a bit surprised, though aspects of sophisticated electronic products but either AA batteries power capacity or conversion rates are slightly inferior to lithium battery.

Most importantly, the power of two AA batteries so that the composition of the body volume instantly become very “card”, let alone a spare battery in the weight burden on the user. So redesigned power scheme became Canon Powershot SX170 IS major hardware upgrade points, using lithium AA batteries to replace the preferred body weight can make a big down, naked body weight difference of only 20 g , complete with battery storage card but the gap reached 40 g (SX160 is about 290 grams, Canon Powershot SX170 IS compared to 250 g), which for a 300 g body can not be ignored in terms of proportion.

Even the weight drop down, but still feel good. Xiao Bian when carried on the Canon Powershot SX170 IS handheld shooting grip and not because of the weight of the decline worse. It is worth noting that all the corresponding reduction in the Canon Powershot SX170 IS handles the site area and thickness (contrast seen in three dimensions), but the practical operation of the button box Washing have no significant impact.

2,16 x optical zoom – zoom and focus speed has a slight improvement
In the previous article we mentioned the Canon Powershot SX170 IS lens did not make the upgrade, in fact, such a statement is not objective. Due to changes in power supply design led to work with the machine need to re-adjust the amount of adaptation, the most important is the Canon Powershot SX170 IS lens motor on debugging made a little fine-tuning, this from the appearance simply do not see, even is part of the structure of the lens drive will not be a very significant difference. Canon Powershot SX170 IS is an entry-level machine SX series rare, but it is still the biggest highlight of the zoom lens at high magnification. 35 mm equivalent focal length of 28-448 mm lens in the market although not the biggest zoom digital camera, but cost control, care to make a better balance between practicality.

Due to the structure of the lens does not make a change, so imaging can be said to be maintained at a relatively formal level. Of course, the quality in the use of digital zoom (64 times) is much less after using only the optical zoom, but occasionally use a small picture size digital zoom, or can, I believe this definition is adequate for home users.

After all, look back at the positioning of this machine can achieve more than 1000 mm super-telephoto shooting capability far beyond the capabilities of this camera, and at the same time in the development of environmental sustainability telephoto lens performance machines, Canon Powershot SX170 IS added digital zoom function more out of practice and consideration. I believe the future will have more than 1000 mm optical zoom entry-level telephoto appear.
