Sigma announces world's first F1.8 constant aperture zoom lens - (Private Browsing) The Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art is the world's first F1.8 constant aperture zoom lens Image Gallery (2 images) Third-party lenses are sometimes looked down upon by the sort of photographers who insist you can only take a good photo if your lens says Canon or Nikon on it.
But, not only do some outperform their branded counterparts, others do something which mean they don't even have first-party rivals. The new Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM Art, for example, is the world's only zoom lens to achieve a maximum aperture F1.8 throughout the entire range. Sony announces new waterproof Handycam - (Private Browsing) Sony’s new everything-proof Actioncam is definitely a worthy opponent to the likes of the GoPro HERO, although sometimes people just want a user-friendly video camera that can go in the water.
Well, that’s where the Sony Handycam HDR-GW66VE comes into the picture. It’s a compact HD camcorder that can be submerged to a depth of 10 meters (33 feet) for up to an hour. Along with its imperviousness to water, the HDR-GW66VE is also dust- and dirt-proof, shockproof to a drop height of 1.5 meters (4.9 feet), and can operate in temperatures down to -10ºC (14ºF). The camera shoots at a maximum resolution of 1080p (50 fps), in a choice of AVCHD, MPEG2 or MP4 formats. It’s also able to capture 20-megapixel stills. Big O brings LCD viewfinder window to Outex DSLR housing system. While DSLRs give photographers great creative freedom and image quality, the cameras themselves don't cope too well with being exposed to excessive amounts of sand, mud, water or snow – which can be a pain if you get your kicks from shooting things like extreme sports.
Outex is a weather and modular waterproof housing system for DSLRs that works much like a drysuit for your camera, and can protect your gear underwater to a depth of 10 meters (33 feet). The new "Big O" adds a big Outex LCD viewfinder window to the system. SteadyWheel takes a circular approach to stabilizing video. The SteadyWheel is a circular stabilizing rig for video cameras Image Gallery (5 images) As can be seen by the increasing number of stabilizing rigs available for DSLRs and small camcorders, people don’t like shaky hand-held video.
Most of those rigs are inspired by the Steadicam Smoothee, utilizing a counter-weighted arm that extends below the gimbal-mounted camera. It’s an effective set-up, but one that’s also kind of fiddly. Fabricator and machinist Robert Stone has created something much more simple, in the form of the SteadyWheel. Skink Pinhole Pancake Objektiv Pro Kit Leica M M6 M5 MP. Fujifilm launches M-mount adapter for X-Pro1's X-mount. Fujifilm has officially unveiled its promised adapter to allow the use of Leica M-mount lenses on the X-Pro1.
Unlike third-party versions, the adapter has electronic contacts for communication with the camera body, and a Function button that allows quick setting of the lens in use. To make full use of the adapter, a firmware update for the X-Pro1 (version 1.10) will be made available in June 2012. This will allow the user to create up to six lens profiles to correct distortion, vignetting and corner colour shading (in a similar manner to the Ricoh GXR Mount A12).

Transcend Wi-Fi SD cards give cameras a wireless boost. The Wi-Fi SD Memory Cards from Transcend feature a SDHC Class 10 speed rating and are available in 16GB or 32GB Image Gallery (4 images) While many cameras now pack Wi-Fi connectivity for the wireless sharing and transferring of captured images, those owning cameras without such capabilities need not necessarily have to shell out cash for an entirely new camera to get wireless connectivity.
Stow-Away keeps your lens caps under your DSLR.

While the majority of photographers simply slip their lens cap into their pocket, others (nudist photographers perhaps?) Apparently need an alternative. The Stow-Away lens cap holder attaches under your camera and gives you somewhere to stow your lens cap. Leica reveals the Leica M and the stripped back M-E. Since the introduction of the Leica M3 in 1954, the German camera manufacturer has generally distinguished its flagship rangefinders with numbers – prompting generations of photographers to lust after the M4, M6 or M9.
However, each new generation of M camera will now simply be known as the "Leica M". But the camera formerly known as the M10 isn't all about the name change, it's also the first M-series to boast a CMOS sensor, Live View and HD video. View all Lecia also used Photokina 2012 to announce the release of an "affordable" rangefinder, the Leica M-E, which is essentially a slightly stripped back M-series camera.

Panasonic unveils its smallest and lightest interchangeable lens camera yet. Panasonic has added to its ever growing - yet ever shrinking - stable of Lumix Micro Four Thirds cameras with what it claims is the world's smallest and lightest digital interchangeable lens camera with a built-in flash. The new DMC-GF3 is 16.7 percent smaller and 16.2 percent lighter than its predecessor, the DMC-GF2, which was itself 19 percent smaller and seven percent lighter than the preceding DMC-GF1. The GF3's size and weight reductions are largely thanks to the elimination of an optical viewfinder and mirror-box, which also means there's no electronic viewfinder. View all The GF3 is smaller than Sony's latest NEX series of mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras, and offers a larger "DSLR-sized" 12.1-megapixel Live MOS sensor in comparison to the NEX C3's APS-C sized sensor.
