Pentax K-7 Body only

$809.00 to $1,805.00



True to its series concept, it was designed not only to assure outstanding image quality, but also to provide exceptional ease and comfort of operation and the utmost satisfaction to photo enthusiasts of all levels, including advanced amateurs. After making a thorough review of all essential digital SLR camera components and functions, PENTAX has revised and upgraded many of them, including viewfinder, shutter unit, continuous-shooting capacity, and exposure and autofocus systems. Protected by a durable, high-quality metallic body, but the K-7 is designed to be extremely compact and functional — just like all other K-series models — for enhanced portability and maneuverability.Minimize

Panasonic DMC-GH1 with 14-140mm lens

$1,159.00 to $2,016.00



The LUMIX GH1 features the Live View Finder system which enables something that simply is not possible with conventional DSLR cameras – the ability to preview the effects of camera settings (e.g., exposure, aperture, shutter speed) before taking the photo. This helps take the guesswork out of the camera setting process and helps users ensure that every photo they capture comes out exactly as they envisioned.Minimize

Canon EOS 5D Mark II Body Only


The Canon EOS 5D Mark II Digital SLR camera automatically conducts peripheral illumination correction when shooting JPEG images, a function that previously could only be accomplished through post-image processing using software such as Canon's Digital Photo Professional, which Canon supplies at no extra charge. Peripheral illumination correction evens brightness across the image field, making an image of a blue sky even toned throughout and reducing light fall-off at image edges. This new feature essentially eliminates one of the limitations of previous full-frame digital SLRs.Minimize


Canon EOS 50D with 28-135mm lens


The Canon EOS 50D SLR Digital Camera features an APS-C sized 15.1-megapixel CMOS sensor for superb quality images and the DIGIC 4 Image Processor to provide superior color reproduction, and improved ISO capabilities for uncompromised shooting even in the dimmest situations. It also features a 3.0-inch Clear View LCD monitor, supercharged Live View Function with Face Detection Live mode, plus a number of automatic Image Correction settings and HDMI output. The 50D is incredibly fast thanks to the DIGIC 4 processor - it allows for up to 6.3 fps continuous shooting, in bursts of up to 90 JPEG images (with a UDMA CF card).Minimize


Sony Alpha DSLR-A330Y with 18-55mm and 55-200mm lenses


Le DSLR-A330Y offre la technologie Quick Autofocus (AF)Live View de Sony afin de cadrer les photos à l'écran ACL de l'appareil, ainsi que par l'entremise du viseur optique. Par l'entremise d'un capteur d'image dédié, Quick AF Live View maintient le délai de réponse rapide d'un appareil SLR numérique tout en évitant les retards de mise au point communs aux autres systèmes de visionnement direct. Il est doté d'un écran ACL Photo Claire(MC) de 2,7 pouces qui est facile à visionner, même en plein soleil. De plus, l'écran ACL peut être incliné vers le haut ou le bas, facilitant le cadrage de votre sujet à des positions élevées ou basses. Il est aussi doté d'une interface graphique avec guide d'aide intégré à l'écran qui offre des explications claires et concises pour les divers modèles et réglages, tandis que l'affichage graphique vous aide à comprendre la relation entre l'ouverture et la vitesse d'obturateur, de même que l'effet de ces derniers sur les résultats photographiques.Minimize


Olympus E-620 with 14-42mm lens


The E-620 has the Freedom to Move You Autofocus Live View with Face Detection (up to 8 faces) and Shadow Adjustment Technology; expands the creative shooting possibilities with your SLR. Not to mention it's even easier to capture the shot with the 2.7'' HyperCrystal III swivel LCD, providing 270 degrees of movement.
