Nikon unveiled today an updated version of its D7100 prosumer DSLR. The new D7200 model carries improvements in several areas, among them increased buffer size and a bump in low-light sensitivity.
The D7200 comes with a different 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor, compared to the predecessor’s 24.1MP. That is likely the Sony made unit featured in other models of the company, which would explain the marginal difference in resolution over the Toshiba imager in the D7100. Read more »

Nikon has launched a modified version of its D810 DSLR, the D810A. The D810A is the first full frame camera in the world optimized for astrophotography.
Most cameras have an IR cut filter that is designed to allow only those wavelengths of light that the human eye can see, so that the resulting image looks similar to what it looks to the human eye. However, the light emitted by far away stars and galaxies are often well beyond our visual range, and in order to capture them properly, you need a camera designed specifically for such application.

Canon has launched two new high-end DSLRs, called the EOS 5DS and the EOS 5DS R. The difference between the two cameras is that the former has a low-pass filter, which blurs the image slightly to reduce moire, while the 5DS R lacks it, resulting in sharper images at the cost of increased moire.
Both cameras have a 50.6 megapixel sensor, the highest for any Canon DSLR or for any full-frame DSLR. There’s also a 61 point AF system, with 41 cross-type AF points. Both cameras use the new DIGIC 6 image processor. Read more »
