At Sony Canada’s recent VIP product preview event, which included showcasing the new stunning Sony BRAVIA 4K TV lineup displayed, the Japanese electronics manufacturer also showed the a popular selling category this time of year: cameras. One model I took great interest in is Sony’s super portable, mountable and wearable Action Cam.
I was pretty excited to test out the Sony ActionCam With LiveView Remote, and if you watch point of view action sports videos on Youtube the way most of my family does, you’ll instantly know exactly what this camera is for. Designed specifically to capture live action video in all the crazy places you’d go to for action sports and recreation, the Sony ActionCam has all the bells and whistles you’d expect from a camera of this type. It was created for the ski hill, it shines on the side of a mountain, and you can take it with you while you hang ten on a wave near a tropic beach.
The RX100 is a high-end point-and-shoot, offering excellent image quality in a small package. It has gained loads of fans and garnered lots of praise for packing enough features to satisfy the most demanding of shooters into the smallest possible space.
Today I'm going to take an in-depth look at this pocket rocket, and tell you about the two killer features of the RX100 that really set it apart from the rest.
Sony is pushing the boundaries of photography ina few different directions this year. First came the innovative QX series of 'smart' lenses, and now they're announced two mirrorless, interchangeable-lens cameras with.......wait for it.........FULL_FRAME SENSORS!
This is a pretty big deal, so today photographer Justin Morrison is taking a closer look at what we know so far about these cameras and what this announcement means for the consumer camera market.
Whether you’re thinking about TVs, tablets, laptops, or digital and DSLR cameras, the name Sony will always bring to mind the brightest images, the boldest colours, and the best video available. So it’s no surprise the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H200, a 20.1MP Digital Camera, is out-of-the-box amazing.

Sony is about to release their newest Compact System Camera (CSC), the Sony NEX-3N, which is aimed at compact camera users that would like better image quality without the bulk and complexity of a DSLR. Sony has kept the high quality of its' predecessor, the NEX-F3, and made some excellent improvements like a retractable power zoom lens with an easy-to-use zoom lever on the camera body. They have also managed to make it even smaller so it is now the smallest CSC in the market. So if you are thinking of getting a compact point-and-shoot camera, but you want better picture quality and flexibility, this camera is a great choice.
If you have a point-and-shoot digital camera chances are you take almost all of your photographs in automatic mode. However, by making a few simple changes to your camera settings you can dramatically improve your photos. Your camera was designed to take great photos in different conditions, and it really is simple to learn and use. So invest a few minutes and learn how to change some of your cameras settings. I will describe several here that you should know and are included in most digital cameras.
This coming Sunday, November 25, marks a very exciting day in Canadian sporting history – the 100th Grey Cup Game! While we Canadians have often been criticized for our fickle ways when it comes to supporting our local sports teams through thick and thin, this weekend is sure to bring both sides of the continent together in patriotic unity – complete with chili, touques, and beer – when the Calgary Stampeders take on the host Toronto Argonauts; the third meeting between the two teams for the Grey Cup championship, and the first since the 79th Grey Cup in 1991.
When traveling it is nice to take some great looking pictures without having to lug around the bigger DSLR type of camera. Fortunately, there are some excellent compact cameras that will fit into your pocket and take high quality point-and-shoot pictures.
When I researched higher-end compact travel cameras I had some minimum requirements. They needed to be over 10 megapixels, have great zoom capabilities (15X or more), a re-chargeable lithium ion battery so they would last on the road, a variety of scene modes like panorama, image stabilization, HD video capabilities, and low-light capabilities for taking pictures at night. I found at least 5 brand-name cameras that fit these criteria, and then I took a few steps further in comparing their detailed features.
