SMART AWARDS 2013 / DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY

Nikon Takes Top Spot In Cameras With Mirrorless V1

By The SmartHouse Team | Tuesday | 13/12/2011

The mirrorless camera race for the enthusiast digicam with a difference has been heated this year, with everyone from Panasonic to Olympus throwing their efforts into the race, but the latest addition, the Nikon 1, took the spotlight in SmartHouse's 2012 Smart Awards.


The V1 model of the Nikon 1 mirrorless system camera took the crown at the SmartHouse 2012 Smart Awards for its all-round great performance, image quality and design, with Nikon's nod to simplicty with premium results garnering beautiful results. The interchangeable lens camera has fleshed out superfluous buttons and extremities while keeping the sure-shot essentials like the in-built viewfinder and high-res screen to create a camera that entices users to take great photos.

Just as the D5100 has been bringing shy shooters into the in-depth world of DSLRs, so too does the V1 invite a new class of keen amateur and enthusiast into a recent breed of cameras. On that note - the D5100 also picked up an award in the 2012 Smart Awards.

Nikon's new mirrorless camera has a 10.1-megapixel image sensor and has plenty of accessory support for lenses, an external flash or GPS, and includes a high-resolution electronic viewfinder on board.
HD movies are shot in 1920x1080 at 60i or 30p, and 1280x720 at 60p, while slow motion movies are captured at 640x240 at 400FPS or 320x120 at 120FPS. The camera also incorporates pre-post capture technology that starts before you click so you never miss a moment. 60 frames per second can be captured with Nikon's camera processors and rapid autofocus capabilities, while also offering a ISO range of 100 to 6400, a three-inch LCD screen, and phase-difference and contrast autofocus.

New LG 65   New LG 65" Ultra High Definition TV, Complete With Pop Down Speakers: REVIEW
LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
