If you’re after a new camera and have a budget of under £300, you may at first

I think you’re limited to a reasonably well-specified compact at best. Look a little harder though and you’ll find DSLRs, Compact System Cameras and a wealth of sophisticated compacts that can be picked up for under £300. What’s the catch, you may ask? Well, they’re probably not going to be the latest models, but with the pace of sensor development slowing down in the past few years, you’re not losing out that much compared to the latest models, while they may not have




Fujifilm X100S


I ‘ve had a pretty busy month I with the X100S. First off I was a trip to Sardinia and I made the conscious decision to travel light, shooting purely with the X100S.

We were fortunate with incredible blue skies every day (something that seems to have continued since getting home) and these kind of bright conditions just don’t lend themselves to shooting with a rear display. This is primarily down to the new 2.36m-dot EVF compared to the still respectable 1.44m-dot EVF on the X100. It’s lovely and clear to shoot with

Sonys Cutting-Edge Lens Now Used on a Phone

When SonyAlphaRumours.com first put up images of the DSC-QX10 and DSC-QX100 lens, it was ridiculed. But it did not take long for the rumour to gain momentum and turn into a probability.

The two lenses meant to be magnetically attached to your smartphone or tablet features a built-in sensor, a Bionz processor, a Wifi/NFC wireless connection and an SD card slot. However, since they do not possess any camera controls, they will have to be managed using WiFi on the smartphone or tablet device.

Of the two lenses, the DSC-QX 10 will have a 1-inch 20.2MP sensor, similar to the

Bowens Gemini 400Rx Kit

To relieve the transportation issues that I’ve been experiencing with the large size of the kit bag and the lack of rolling wheels, i have resorted to stashing the contents of the kit in a rolling luggage bag. This is less than ideal as it doesn’t offer the same cushioning or protection as the Bowens carry pack provides, but does allow me to transport the kit from home to my shooting locations easily. Having used the kit for a few months, I can now set it up in under a couple of minutes and there’s barely

Aerial Common Sensor Contract Award

ON AUGUST 2, as AFM was closing for press, the US Army awarded an industry team led by Lockheed Martin, a cost-plus-award fee contract, valued at $879 million, to complete development of the Aerial Common Sensor (ACS) programme. Lockheed Martin’s successful bid for the airborne Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) system will be integrated on Embraer ERJ-145 type aircraft. Embraer will assemble the aircraft and fit the mission systems in Florida at a new facility at the former Naval Air Station at Cecil Field, outside Jacksonville.

The IxKkheed Martin proposal was selected over a Northrop Grumman-led team offering a version

In an effort to wrestle market share back in the highly competitive smartphone market, Nokia has announced the Lumia 1020 with a built-in 41MP camera.

Nokia’s flagship Windows cameraphone features an iteration of the camera/sensor technology that we first saw from the company’s 808 PureView phone last year.

There have been numerous improvements though over the 808 PureView which includes an updated HD 1280 x 768 AMOLED display and 1.5GHz dual-core processor.

The clever bit is the sensor, and the thing to understand is that the Lumia 1020 won’t output that kind of resolution all the time. Instead, for most

Specialists of Uralelektropech developed a new design of the oxygen sensor remote type

Following a successful trial started recruiting nitriding furnaces new oxygen sensor, remote type, based on stabilized zirconia. Zirconia is the best and most common material for the determination of the concentration of oxygen, as evidenced by the extensive use of zirconium sensors from automobile fuel systems to the most accurate gas analyzers. Zirconia generate EMF which depends linearly on the concentration of oxygen in the measurement gas that can accurately measure the oxygen concentration in the entire possible range.

Tysyachetsvetny sensor helps determine the degree of pollution of the planet's interesting

It seems that in the world there are thousands of colors, but the person is able to distinguish only three groups — red, green, blue. Tel Aviv University has developed a technology using which the invisible eye colors, you can analyze the world around us, and to recognize the pollutants and other harmful effects on the environment.

The sensor can analyze 300 times more information than the human brain. He is able to read from a distance of 1 inch to 800 miles. Use it to establish direct
