Sony press release:


Great pictures to fit everyone’s pocket : Slim, stylish Cyber-shot cameras by Sony offer superb picture quality and outstanding value

• 10.1/12.1 effective megapixels (W180/W190)
• Easy to use with convenient shooting functions
• Smile Shutter automatically captures smiling portraits
• SteadyShot and High Sensitivity ISO 3200 for crisp, clear shots
• Seven Scene Selection modes
• 3x optical zoom and 17x/18x Smart Zoom (W180/W190)
• Choice of three colours (silver, black, red)


Two slim, stylish Cyber-shot digital cameras from Sony offer outstanding quality and value to suit every pocket.

The Cyber-shot W180 and W190 are the perfect no-fuss choice for anyone who needs to capture family moments, holidays and nights out.

Both models look great with slim, clean lines and a choice of silver, black or red colour finish options. Ideal for first-time photographers, they’re beautifully easy to use, with a simple slide switch to select photo/movie/playback modes.

For maximum creative freedom, a choice of seven Scene Selection modes adjusts camera settings automatically to suit virtually any subject. While they offer superb value, the Cyber-shot W180 and W190 don’t compromise on class-leading picture quality and easy-to-use features.

A high resolution of 10.1/12.1 effective megapixels (W180/W190) ensures crisp, detail-packed enlargements to A3 size and beyond. Pristine picture quality is further enhanced by the high-quality 3x optical zoom lens.

Smart zoom boosts maximum magnification to a frame-filling 18x for W190 and 17x for W180 for even more dramatic close-ups. There’s also a generously-sized 2.7” Clear Photo LCD screen for a bright, clear view of images and quick confirmation of camera settings.

Improved Face Detection recognises up to 8 faces in a scene, fine-tuning focus and exposure for better-looking portraits. For even happier people pictures, Smile Shutter automatically takes a picture when your subject smiles.

SteadyShot image stabilisation reduces the effects of camera shake when you’re shooting handheld. A special shooting mode boosts sensitivity to ISO 3200, letting you freeze moving subjects with faster shutter speeds or capture atmospheric interiors without flash.

Also supplied, the latest version (4.2.01) of Picture Motion Browser software (for PC) makes it easy to manage and share your collection of digital photos and video clips and for uploading these to YouTube, Picasa or other image and video sharing web-sites.

The Cyber-shot W180 and W190 compact digital cameras are available from July 2009.

Hasselblad H4D-60 review

UPDATE 18 May, 2012: Hasseblad is set to reduce the price on the H4D cameras by as much as $11,000 / 6,200 Euros on the H4D-60, bringing the price to 23,900 euros ($30,995 / £21,995). Please see here for more details.

The last couple of decades have been turbulent for medium format camera manufacturers, but now after several well-known names have withdrawn, the market looks healthy. Two new unexpected entrants, Leica and Pentax have added to the dynamic at opposing ends of the pricing scale, forcing the two established system players to compete fiercely in their traditional rarefied role as well as the entry-level.

Partnering with both Leaf and Mamiya, Phase One has developed a trio of entry-level Mamiya DM models starting at under $14k/ £9k while continuing to offer a wide range of Phase One and Leaf backs, up to 80-megapixels. Through various offers and incentives these backs, are most likely to be partnered with the 645DF body but they are in fact compatible with a wide range of …

Fujifilm IS Pro UV-IR DSLR review

Fuji’s IS Pro is the up-date to maker’s earlier S3 UV-IR camera, and like that particular camera, the IS Pro adopts a modified image sensor that’s not shielded from UV or IR light. Consequently, with various filtration methods, the IS Pro is designed for Ultraviolet (UVA), visible and near Infrared photography.

Although there is a healthy demand for DSLRs with IR capability especially, and there are number of independent vendors (mainly in the US, but the UK also) that offer IR dedicated and full-spectrum conversion of current Nikon and Canon bodies, it’s anticipated the IS Pro will appeal largely to the scientific and forensic communities. With the departure of the S3 UV-IR, Fuji’s IS Pro continues to be the only dedicated full-spectrum interchangeable lens based DSLR that has professional-level support from a camera maker. As well as official product support and 12-month warranty, for government agencies and the like, the OEM status of the IS Pro will be particularly reassuring an…

Introduction


Unlike the process of dithering liquid ink in an inkjet, dye-sublimation printers produce authentic continuous tone images with an analogous look like that of a conventional lab-produced print. They achieve this using thin c…
