Nikon D3s Adds HD Video Recording and ISO 102,400 Feature

"Nikon officially announced the new 12.1-megapixel D3s digital SLR this morning. The camera adds high definition video capture but otherwise appears to be a relatively minor upgrade to the D3 which was released back in 2007. Though the D3s ($5,200) features the exact same image resolution as its predecessor, Nikon says the new camera has a brand new sensor, an FX-format (aka full-frame) CMOS chip which can shoot as high as ISO 102,400. The standard ISO range of the D3s is ISO 200-12,800. The three high ISO settings include ISO 25,600 (H1), 51,200 (H2), and 102,400 (H3). Individual pixel size for the 12.1MP image sensor is 8.45 microns." By Dan Havlik: Read full article at PDN

Canon EOS 7D Digital SLR

"Today, Canon has announced the EOS 7D to add to its lineup of DSLRs. The Canon 7D is an 18-megapixel DSLR that adds several upgrades from prior generation prosumer DSLRs.

While the 18-megapixel APS-C (1.6x crop) CMOS sensor is an upgrade of 3-megapixels over the 50D, the Canon 7D is more akin to the pro-level 5D Mark II in terms of its features and build.  A new autofocus system consisting of 19 cross-type points will likely be welcomed by most shooters.  Additionally, Canon has addressed the cries of many aspiring filmmakers by including several frame rate options, including 1080p recording at 24fps.

The Canon 7D is likely to become known as the pro-level crop-sensor camera in Canon’s lineup.
