I just tried the new editing functionality over at Flickr.com and it works much better than I expected. The new functionality comes from the small company Picnik and it’s almost like having a Photoshop light in your browser. Nice!

Today I got the brand new Panasonic Lumix FZ18 – a camera that features a massive 18x zoom. It also has a resolution of 8 megapixel and a built-in optical image stabilizer. Here is our holy unboxing gallery.
One of the hottest cameras at the moment is the new full frame DSLR from Nikon – the new Nikon D3. It features a 6400 ISO capable, 12.1 megapixel full frame sensor, 51-point autofocus, HDMI output, a 3-inch live view screen and two CF slots. It aint cheap though – expect to pay $5 000. Here is the holy unboxing gallery.

A rumor says that Pentax will unveil the follow-ups to K10D and K100D at the PMA early next year. The two cameras are supposed to be the Pentax K20D & K200D. According to the rumor the K20D will feature: a new 14 megapixel sensor from Pentax, a 3″ live-view LCD, improved built-in shake reduction while the K200D will come with a 10 megapixel sensor from Sony.

I was totally stunned by this shot of the Pigeon Point Lighthouse in San Mateo County, California south of San Francisco. Apparently you can only take this kind of photo once a year when they turn on 5 kerosene lamps and fresnel lens of the original as the lighthouse used 135 years ago. Amazing shot.
The race in the budget- and mid segment D-SLR cameras is very tight, and if you can’t compete with higher resolution you can compete with better features like vibration reduction. Nikon’s VR system affords users the ability to take pictures at shutter speeds up to three stops slower than they ordinarily could shoot without the image-degrading blur caused by camera shake at slow shutter speeds.
The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens will be available beginning December 2007 at an estimated selling price of $199.
Please note that the image above features a different Nikon lens than the NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens.
Five days ago we unboxed the DMC-L10, and now I have spent some more days with Panasonics new digital SLR DMC-L10. The camera is meant to compete with the Canon EOS 40D and the Nikon D200 in the mid segment, and technically the camera is a pretty good choice.
Today we got the new 10 megapixel digital camera Panasonic Lumix DMC-L10. It’s an entry-level SLR with a price of around $1300. A review of the camera will come in the near future but here is the holy unboxing ceremony. Check it out.
I’m pretty sure that Canon quite easily could make this concept model by David Münscher into a final product within a couple of months – if they wanted to. It’s a pretty cool design anyway even though I seriously doubt that Canon will make it happen.

Together with the Nikon D300 came a new professional full frame camera from Nikon – the D3. The big news is that the 12 megapixel sensor is a full size sensor which means that all professional photographers can use their lenses just like they used to do with their analogue Nikons.
