Canon

A slightly better kept secret than the Nikon D600, Canon’s new EOS 6D is also aimed as an affordable entry into full frame photography. Features include a 20.2mp sensor with a DIGIC 5+ image processor that allows you to shoot at 4.5fps, offers in camera HDR and 1080p video capture at 30fps. ISO range is from 100 to 102,400 when extended. The autofocus system is claimed to work in light levels as low as EV-3. It looks to be a fantastic machine and sports built in Wi-Fi.

News Round Up: Nikon D600, Sony A99, RX1 etc, etc, etc.

What a busy week with Photokina happening, next week so lets jump straight in.

Fuji

Following on the success of the X-Pro1, Fuji have announced the X-E1. It features the same, highly acclaimed 16.3mp APS-C X-Trans CMOS Sensor that is in the X-Pro1 but this time without the fancy, hybrid optical and electronic viewfinder. In fact the electronic only viewfinder in the new X-E1 is an OLED kind, with 2.36mp resolution which is very similar sounding to the one found in the Sony NEX-7. We are looking forward to testing this machine soon, particularly with the new 18-55mm f/2.8-4 standard zoom and 14mm f/2.8.
