Nikon D5600

The Nikon D5600 is a new entry-level DSLR camera with a 24-megapixel APS-C sensor and a vari-angle touchscreen. Other notable features include built-in Wi-Fi, SnapBridge compatibility (which utilises Bluetooth low energy technology to let the D5600 maintain a constant, low-power link with a smartphone or tablet), a viewfinder with ~95% frame coverage and ~0.82x magnification, and a sensitivity range of ISO 100-25600. During viewfinder shooting, the refined touch Fn function offers an intuitive alternative to using the command dial or multi-selector: now photographers can operate the Auto Sensitivity control, as well as selecting the focus point or adjusting other important settings, via the touchscreen. And a frame advance bar, inherited from Nikon’s professional D5 and D500 cameras, makes it possible to quickly scroll through images in playback mode. For movie shooters, the Time-Lapse Movie function makes it simple to transform slow-moving scenes into high-speed sequences. The camera will go on sale on 24th November, priced at £799.99 / €949 in a kit with the AF-P 18-55mm VR standard zoom, or £989.99 / €1,179 with the AF-S 18-140mm VR lens.

Canon are showcasing a 120 megapixel EOS DSLR camera at Photokina 2016. The new concept model is actually a current Canon EOS 5DS body with a 120 megapixel sensor inside, instead of the normal 50 megapixel sensor, paied with a standard EF 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. In an impressive macro demo setup, fine detail from a tiny portion of the scene was replayed on a computer monitor, making things visible that weren't apparent to the naked eye. No mention was made of how fast the continuous shooting rate is though!
