Nikon D7100 Preview

In this video, Matt Granger from ThatNikonGuy/PhotoNewsReview does a preview of the Nikon D7100 DSLR camera which was introduced today. Featuring a 24.1MP DX sensor with 6fps, 51 AF-points with 15 cross-type AF points, and a weather-sealed magnesium alloy body, this is a great alternative to the Nikon D600 camera if you don’t need full-frame. For videographers, this camera can go up to 30p or 60i, and features both a mic input and headphone output so you can monitor the audio that is being recorded.

I’m looking forward to see if Canon will reply to this with a 7D II in the near future.

Panasonic DMC – TZ40 – hands on

In this video, Matt Granger from PhotoNewsReviews/ThatNikonGuy does a hands-on review of the Panasonic DMC TZ40 compact point & shoot camera with WIFI, NFC, and a Leica lens. If you have a phone with NFC, you can get it connected to this camera very quickly to not only transfer photos, but to also control the cameras through your phone.

Hasselblad Lunar

In this video, Matt Granger from PhotoNewsReviews/ThatNikonGuy does a hands-on review of the Hasselblad Lunar camera. At 5000 euros, this will be a very overpriced mirrorless camera which uses a Sony sensor and Sony lenses you can buy for a fraction of the price. This is definitely made for someone who values aesthetics of a camera more than its functionality, so definitely not a camera for me.

Red EPIC cinema camera – hands on

In this video, Matt Granger from PhotoNewsReviews/ThatNikonGuy does a hands-on review of the Red Epic cinema camera, along with the Monochrome and the Scarlet. The current version can do 5k video, with an upgradable sensor coming along shortly at 6k video. Supporting both PL and EF lenses through an adapter while retaining full auto-focus, this is a very popular option for HDSLR shooters looking for an upgrade in image quality. Not only is the resolution superb, but the image quality is incredible, along with the colour depth and dynamic range. The performance in high ISO is also excellent, so a great video camera if you have the budget for it.

And if you’re not convinced you need 5k or 6k video yet, you can bring the footage down to 1080p to get an even more impressive video, and you can keep the 5k/6k raw files in case you want to make a 4k version in the future.
