With a large super-resolution, the camera certainly can produce images that are so detailed, as can capture pores and wrinkles on the face and even able to display a unique reflection in the eyes of someone in the same shot.

The camera was dubbed 120M EOS Camera System. Although there is no word when the camera will swing in the market, but at least the crosshairs tool has become a prototype.

120M EOS Camera System itself seemed attached with 24-70mm lens, it looks solid and certainly targeting the premium market and professional photographers.

As for the 250 MP sensor which is also made by Canon codenamed APS-H CMOS with the amount of 19 580 x 12 600 pixels resolution. Canon APS-H sized larger than the APS-C, but has a smaller frame.

This sensor has claimed to be able to read the details of light very quickly to 1.25 billion pixels per second. The ability of the sensor is not only good for the purposes of taking a static image (photo), but also for high-resolution video.

The ability to take video sensors up to 5 fps and the image 30 times brighter than 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels.

Canon G1X Mark II: Camera Compact DSLR Sense

First impressions were obtained when holding the Canon PowerShot G1X Mark II is, these devices are not as compact cameras in general. Just look at the weight – 553 grams – heavier than some entry level DSLR.

Indeed, the specification of this camera is quite well. The sensor measures 1.5 inches with a resolution of 13 megapixels. The sensor is only slightly smaller than the APS-C sensor DSLR belong largely, or mirrorless cameras. 6 also features DIGIC processor which ensures a faster transfer of the menu and can reduce shutter lag.

Canon G1X Mark IIThough not an interchangeable lens camera, G1X Mark II has a capable lens. Equivalent to 24-120mm lens with f/2-3.9 aperture. This lens has a minimum focusing distance of approximately 5 cm in macro mode.

G1X Mark II is fairly heavy for a compact camera size. With the small size of the grip, handling the camera with one hand relatively difficult. Most likely the user will need two hands to be able to use the camera comfortably.

To perform a variety of camera settings, in addition to a number of buttons on the top and back of the camera, Canon also offers two lens ring. One of the lens ring has a clicky accent, like a ring to set the aperture on a DSLR lens.

The usefulness of the lens ring varies the user desires. Diaphragm, shutter speed, adjusting the zoom lens, autofocus as well. However, the use of lens ring to adjust the focus is too slow, because the turning radius is too large.

At the top of the camera there are a few buttons, the shutter button, the camera power button and the play button to view the photos. There is also a play button to select a shooting mode. Oh yes, at the bottom of the shutter button there is also a button to adjust the zoom lens.

The back is dominated by a 3-inch LCD with capacitive touchscreen capabilities. It makes the touch screen is very intuitive and easy to use, touch screen in a sort of upper-class smartphones.

With the touch screen, the user can determine the focal point, navigate while viewing a picture, or delete unwanted photos.

This LCD can be rotated 180 degrees to the front-facing camera, it’ll be fun for lovers selfie. In addition to its LCD can be rotated up to 45 degrees down. Unfortunately this feature is not useful when taking pictures in portrait.

LCD is also a window only to see the photos to be taken. This is because Canon does not provide an optical or electronic viewfinder on the G1X Mark II. If users feel needed, available EVF can be purchased optionally, and can be mounted on the camera hotshoe.

In addition, the back of the camera is also there are some buttons with various functions. Among other things, go into manual focus mode, set the autofocus mode, and go into the menu.

But according, the most useful button is the button function set that is in the middle of the play button. This button is a quick access to the camera’s main menu, such as autofocus mode, metering, picture quality options, and so forth.

To turn on the feature WiFi, Canon also gives a special key. Wi-Fi can be used to connect the G1X Mark II to iOS and Android smartphones, both with the help of Canon CameraWindow application available in the App Store and Play Store.

The function of the application in addition to send photos to smartphones, can also perform remote shooting with a smartphone as a controller.

Canon 70D and Nikon D7100 is a digital SLR camera that is relatively sophisticated and good enough to be used as a serious camera for work or hobby.

Some of the similarities of the two cameras, namely, the size and weight of roughly the same at around 750 grams. Got two LCD screens (one on the back, one on top).

canon70d vs nikond7100In general, the control buttons and wheels quite complete. Speed ‚Äč‚Äčconsecutive photos are also almost identical, Canon 70D capable of shooting up to 7 photos per second, the D7100 sedangan to 6 photos per second in full resolution photos, 7 images per second with a resolution of 1.3x.

The number of pixels is generated both cameras are also not much different, producing images 20-megapixel 70D, D7100, 24 megapixels.

The second camera autofocus system can also be quite similar. Canon 70D Canon 7D autofocus module inherits a pretty good, while the D7100 has autofocus module inheritance of most of the professional Nikon camera.

Well, the rest I will discuss the advantages compared to the Canon 70D Nikon D7100.

Advantages of the Canon 70D

-. The touch screen makes it easy when shooting with the rear LCD screen (live view), for autofocus, video and camera settings.
-. The screen can be rotated.
-. WiFi installed in the camera.
-. Autofocus during live view and record video much smoother and faster

Advantages of the Nikon D7100

-. Results sharper images because there is no low-pass filter in front of the sensor.
-. There is an automatic choice 1.3x crop.
-. Two SD memory card slots.
-. 100% viewfinder coverage, at 98% 70D.
-. Slightly larger screen size is 3.2 inches by 3 inches.
-. The top and back of the camera from magnesium alloy metal, feels more solid.

The second camera is a good camera. For those who want to buy a new digital SLR camera for the first time or leaning to the videography, the Canon 70D may be more flexible for fast autofocus during live view, no WiFi to transfer photos to other devices such as mobile phones or computers.

While the demand for digital SLR cameras that produce quality images and sharp detail for large prints, and the camera body feels solid and durable, the Nikon D7100 is a better choice.

For who already have a considerable collection of lenses from Nikon / Canon, it seems there is no compelling reason to move from one system to another.
