The Best of Imaging at CEA Line Shows
Sony had an impressive presence at CEA Line Shows and amid their jungle of 3D TV technology stood their incredibly compact, interchangeable lens digital camera with 3D integration. The new NEX-5 captured images with the quality of a DSLR in that aforementioned compact body for ultimate portability.
Add impressive HD video performance to the mix as well as the NEX-5 features an APS-C sensor to continuously adjust focus and exposure while recording video. The NEX-5 camera offers Full HD movie capture (1080i AVCHD and 720p MP4) with Full HD 60i recording. With 3D Sweep Panorama mode, the camera can shoot 3D panoramic still images with a single lens. Sony told those in attendance that the high-speed burst of frames is stitched together using innovative processing techniques to automatically create detail-packed 3D panoramas. These files can be enjoyed in 3D on compatible 3D televisions (other accessories may be required).The NEX-5 will be priced around $650 and available in July.
Parrot had show attendees ducking and dodging their new Parrot AR Drone - a four tiered helicopter which is part video game, part video camera and fully controlled by your iPhone. The flying saucer-esque device has two video cameras, one facing the front and one on the bottom, which allows the user to stream the video onto their iPhone.
