Several New High-End Cameras Announced

By September 18, 2012

Follow me on:

Several new cameras have been released in the past week, providing shoppers with quite a few more great options for this upcoming holiday season.

Once these models are released to the market, I'll have more details on all of these cameras in my blog over the next few weeks and months, so check back. (All prices listed are suggested MSRP.)

The new cameras are:

  • Canon EOS 6D. The 6D (pictured here) will have a 20.2 MP image sensor, and it will be one of the smallest full frame DSLR cameras on the market ($2,099).
  • Fujifilm FinePix X-E1. You'll find an electronic viewfinder in a small interchangeable lens camera with the X-E1 ($1,399).
  • Fujifilm FinePix XF1. The XF1 has a retro look similar to the X100 ($499).
  • Fujifilm Instax Mini 8. This new instant-print model is thinner than past Instax cameras. (Price not announced.)
  • Nikon D600. This DSLR model has a full-frame CMOS sensor ($2,099).
  • Olympus PEN E-PL5. The PL5 is the latest PEN DIL camera, and it includes an articulated screen ($649).
  • Olympus PEN E-PM2. This DIL model builds on last year's impressive PM1, which I reviewed ($549).
  • Olympus Stylus XZ-2 iHS. This camera has a high-end CMOS image sensor ($599).
  • Pentax K-5 II and K-5 IIs. Both of these DSLR cameras are weather proof and include 16.28 MP of resolution ($1,199 and $1,299).
  • Pentax Q10. Building on last year's popular Pentax Q DIL camera, the Q10 is another tiny camera with strong photographic capabilities ($599).
  • Sony Alpha SLT-A99. The A99 is lighter than past Sony DSLR cameras, and it includes 24.3 MP of resolution ($2,799).
  • Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1. This is the first full frame fixed lens camera on the market ($2,799).
  • Sony NEX-6. This DIL camera includes a 3.0-inch articulated LCD and built-in Wi-Fi ($850).
  • Sony NEX-VG30. The dual VG30 can make use of several zoom lenses and can shoot still images at 16.1 MP ($1,800), as well as high-speed HD video.
  • Sony NEX-VG900. This high-quality dual camera can shoot still images at 24.3 megapixels ($3,299) and high-speed HD video.
