PICTURES - Best Cameras from CES 2013
During our short stay in Vegas we sure have managed to check out our fair share of cameras. Here we focus on a few of our favourites from CES 2013, from classically inspired models that look like they´ve stepped straight out of the 50´s, right through to 007-style super cameras.
During our short stay in Vegas we sure have managed to check out our fair share of cameras. From classically inspired models that look like they've stepped straight out of the 50's, right through to 007-style super cameras, here are our highlights from CES 2013.
Fujifilm has taken inspiration from years gone by to bring us the X100S - a must have for lovers of all things retro. Don't be fooled by its vintage appearance. While its exterior combines the best in classic design, the X100S is packed with the latest 21st century technology.
Continuing with the vintage theme, Fujifilm showcased a sleek pocket-sized camera, the XF1, which sports a retro design with a modern twist. It's soft leather-style casing conceals a multitude of shooting modes, so you can get creative in style.
With connectivity trending throughout CES 2013, exhibitors clambered to bring us new and exciting ways to share our snaps. Panasonic revealed the Lumix DMC-TS5 - it's toughest camera to date - which features Near-Field Communication (NFC) technology, letting you transfer your special moments instantly to your mobile device with a single tap.
Samsung's latest camera is the Samsung Galaxy Camera, which runs on the latest Android OS - 4.1 (Jelly Bean). Like Panasonic, Samsung has packed this camera with seriously snappy connectivity, including 4G capability and real-time uploading, letting you overshare to your hearts content.
The HK-A100, also showcased by Panasonic, caught our attention whist it was expertly modelled by a fellow CES goer. Panasonic's first step into the wearable camera market promises crisp HD videos, lightweight manoeuvrability and even has Wi-Fi connectivity so wearers can stream live onto Ustream.
Last, but most definitely not least, is the Panasonic Lumix DMC-XS1. One of the slimmest camera's at the show, the cute XS1 is a master of deception, cramming in a massive 16.1 mega-pixel sensor, 5x optical zoom and enough creative modes to keep you busy 'till the cows come home, all into a 14mm thick casing. This tiny tot of a camera seems to have enough special tricks up its sleeve to give Dynamo a run for his money!
