Exciting new products from Sony!

leave a comment »

Sony will continue its legacy of digital innovation by announcing two new cameras and three new lenses into the competitive interchangeable lens camera (ILC) market; announced late last night are two new cameras, the α3000 and the NEX5T, as well as three new lenses.

The new Sony α3000 is the latest addition in the E-Mount system. A brand new style of E-mount camera from Sony, the α3000 offers point and shoot simplicity with the image quality, comfortable body style, and creative freedom one would expect from an interchangeable lens camera or traditional DSLR.  Packed with a 20.1 megapixel Exmor®APS-C sensor, Full HD video shooting capability, a bright LCD eye-level viewfinder, and a Multi-Interface Accessory Shoe for system accessories, it’s loaded with features all in a lightweight body.  And with quick AF in Live View and up to 3.5 photos per second shooting, it’s designed to captures life’s action!

Replacing the NEX-5R in Sony’s successful line of compact interchangeable lens cameras, the NEX-5T takes on the feature set of its predecessor and adds two new options.  The first is NFC (near field communication) for one-touch shooting and sharing of images on Android-based smartphones and tablets, and the second option is an E 16-50mm power zoom lens (SELP1650) as the basic kit option.  Like the NEX-5R, the new NEX-5T has a 16.1 megapixel Exmor®APS-C sensor, Fast Hybrid AF for DSLR-like focusing, Full HD video capture, Wi-Fi® and PlayMemories™ Camera Apps for connectivity and expanded functionality among a host of other features.  The new NEX-5T is everything that has made the 5 series great year over year, but now even better.

In addition to these exciting new cameras, Sony is also offering three new E-Mount lenses!

  • Vario‐Tessar T* E 16‐70mm F4 ZA OSS  Carl Zeiss performance in a compact mid‐range zoom lens with Optical SteadyShot and F/4 available at all focal lengths

SEL1670Z_A

  • E PZ 18‐105mm F4 G OSS A smooth, quiet, high‐quality mid‐range power zoom model that’s ideal not only for still images but also for movies—Sony’s first G Lens for E‐mount cameras.

SELP18105G_A

  • E 50mm F1.8 OSS Black Utilizing the same optical formula as the current E 50mm F1.8 lens, this new model offers customers a new color option of black.

SEL50F18B

Englewood Camera should see these cameras in stock by the middle of September, and the lenses by the middle of October. Call us or stop by the store to be wait-listed for these new products!

Canon Announces 4 New Powershot Cameras

leave a comment »

This morning, Canon USA announced four new PowerShot models to the compact digital camera lineup; the PowerShot G16, PowerShot S120, PowerShot SX510 HS, and PowerShot SX170 IS.

 

Canon’s new PowerShot G16 boasts 12.1 megapixel, High Sensitivity CMOS Sensor, as well as a 28-140mm zoom range with an f/1.8-2.8 aperture range for strong low-light performance. The PowerShot G16 is the first camera in the G series to offer built-in WiFi technology. This feature allows users to seamlessly transfer their photos and videos to a smart phone, tablet or computer via Canon’s CameraWindow app.

In addition, the G16 features new shooting modes to capture breathtaking images day or night. The new Star mode gives users the ability to capture the brilliance and wonder of the night sky through the use of three scene modes. “Star Nightscape” lets users shoot the radiance of stars in a landscape image, while the “Star Trails” mode captures trails of stars to turn them into a luminous still image. “Star Time Lapse Movie” captures continuous still images of the stars and then combines each to create a stunning video replicating the motion of the stars in the night sky.

Estimated Retail: $549.99. Shipping October 2013

Succeeding the PowerShot S110, the pocket-sized PowerShot S120 digital camera continues the tradition of built-in Wi-Fi® technology that allows for images and video to be shared to social networking sites or via email through the CANON iMAGE GATEWAY. Users can also download the free Canon CameraWindow app to their compatible iOS® or Android device and upload images from virtually anywhere.

The PowerShot S120 features a sharp 24-120mm extra-wide angle lens with an aperture range of f/1.8-f/5.7. It is equipped with Canon’s HS System, which combines a DIGIC 6 image processor and a 12.1-megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS image sensor allowing for enhanced low-light image quality. The advancements to Canon’s AF system allow users to achieve significantly faster autofocusing speeds. The S120 allows for continuous capture of up to 12.1 frames per secondii at 12.1-megapixels. The camera also records 1080p/60p Full HD video and includes a built-in stereo microphone and convenient playback via HDMI output.

Multiple creative shot modes such as the new Star mode, Background Defocus mode, and handheld HDR Scene mode give users the ability to create images they will be proud to share. Smart AUTO technology selects 58 different pre-defined scenes without the need to switch modes, making it possible to take beautiful images in a variety of situations.

Estimated Retail: $449.99. Shipping in October 2013

Users can also upload images from almost anywhere via their compatible iOS® or Android device with the download of the free Canon CameraWindow app.

The camera’s Zoom Framing Assist feature automatically maintains the correct distance from the subject using a face recognition sensor to track and capture subjects for sharp still and video images. Upgraded from previous PowerShot models, the AF speed helps dramatically reduce lag time so that perfect shot will be captured with ease.

Estimated Retail: $249.99. Shipping in September 2013

The PowerShot SX170 IS digital camera offers a long zoom in a compact camera body at an affordable price. The camera’s 16x optical zoom with 28mm wide-angle lens and Optical Image Stabilization captures clear, vivid images whether a subject is up close or far away.

Englewood Camera now carries Crumpler!

leave a comment »

Englewood Camera is pleased to announce a new camera bag product line from Crumpler. This Australian company got it’s start in the 1990’s by founder Stu Crumpler; Stu had a creative desire to create a great bag. In the early days, Crumpler made messenger bags for bike couriers–bags that could easily open and close without being taken off, and of bright, mismatched fabrics. This do-it-yourself bag company has evolved over time to offer photography/camera bags, laptop bags, backpacks, casual bags, and luggage. The Crumpler principles, however, have remained the same: “simplicity, a willingness to experiment, a big dose of humour – and a determination to make the best bag you can scissor from a single piece of fabric.”

Looking for a unique bag for your camera equipment? Crumpler offers a great selection of bags and straps with catchy names; check out the “3 Million Dollar Home,” the “Kashgar Outpost,” and straps such as “The Noose” and “Industry Disgrace” now available at Englewood Camera.

Crumpler offers durable bags with waterproof materials and fun colored fabrics. See images below for a peek at some of the bags now in stock.

Crumpler-3.5

The 4 Million Dollar Home, pictured above, is a slim courier-style bag that is a perfect fit for mirrorless cameras, including the Olympus OM-D and Fujifilm X-E1! This bag is available in Purple/Snot Green (pictured), Navy/Rust, or Gun Metal color combinations. Retail: $80.00

Crumpler-3

Looking for a bag to pack around your DSLR with one lens? The 3 Million Dollar Home, pictured above, is a great case to fir a Canon EOS Rebel T5i with lens, or a Nikon D5100 with lens, or your Sony A58 with a lens! This case is available in Navy/Rust (pictured), Purple/Snot Green, or Gun Metal/Black color combinations. Retail: $65.00

Crumpler-5

Crumpler’s Kashgar Outpost (above) is a fantastic shoulder bag designed for compact camera systems or DSLR systems. This bag is available in Small, Medium or Large; bring in your gear and see which size is the right fit for your camera and lenses! Made from a water resistant twill fabric, the Kashgar Outpost has a classic feel and comes in Midnight Blue (pictured), Rifle Green, or Brick. Retail: $120-$145

Crumpler-1

Crumpler makes a solution for folks not wanting to carry a traditional camera bag. Check out the Haven series–a protective insert that can easily fit your camera and an extra lens or two (depending on the size you pick). These durable inserts instantly turn your backpack or messenger bag into a camera bag, and come in Olive/Black (pictured), Red/Black, or Slate Gray/Black color combinations. Retail: $42-$60

Find out more information from Crumpler and see more images on their website.
