Nikon’s D6 pro Camera Is Coming In April For $6,500

Published

on

Last September, Nikon announced its new D6 pro camera but declined to provide any details on it. Today, the details are here: unsurprisingly, it’s a speed-focused DSLR that’ll likely be picked up by a lot of sports photographers headed to Tokyo for this summer’s Olympic games.

The D6 still uses a 20.8-megapixel full-frame sensor, but it has a new Expeed 6 processor that allows for 14 fps full-resolution burst shooting or up to 10.5 fps in live view. The camera can also take 8-megapixel shots at 30 fps or 2-megapixel at 60 fps for times when resolution is not a priority. Native ISO goes from 100 to 102,400.

Nikon has revamped the autofocus system for the D6, reducing the number of points from 153 to 105 but making all of them cross-type and selectable; the company claims that this makes the autofocus coverage 1.6 times “denser.” The center point can focus down to -4.5EV, while all the others work at -4EV.

The D6 is going on sale in April for $6,499.95 body-only.

Huawei Launches Dazzling Four-camera Nova 5T In Ghana

Published

on

GREATER ACCRA – GHANA, Thursday February 20, 2020/www.gbafrica.net/ – Huawei Technologies has launched the much-anticipated Huawei nova 5T in Ghana. The HUAWEI nova 5T furthers the legacy of the nova product line, by integrating a unique aesthetic identity with trendy fashion and cutting-edge technology. This establishes it as more than just a consumer electronic device, but also as emblematic of modern living: avant-garde, fashionable, and idiosyncratic, pushing the boundaries of style and functionality.

The youth-oriented HUAWEI nova smartphone series was conceived with the goal of merging eye-catching visuals with technological innovation, and balancing comfort with novelty. Building on the dazzling color gradients and reflective design in the previous generation, the nova 5T expresses the feeling of boundless space against a 3D backdrop, and depicts the surreal and fantastical through a bold clash of light and shadow.

Designed to provide flagship-level experience at an affordable price, the HUAWEI nova 5T packs a 32 MP selfie camera on the front and a powerful quad-camera array on the back. The AI-enhanced rear camera system is capable of ultra-wide-angle photography, macro shooting, and natural bokeh generation for portraits, as well as ultra-HD imagery that excels in any lighting environment.

It comes equipped with the premium Kirin 980 AI processor and 8 GB of RAM, which interact with the newly unveiled EMUI 9.1 operating system to offer a lag-free, fluid experience on par with expensive high-end models. Its 22.5W SuperCharge technology ensures that the phone is always ready to go and takes little time to get fully charged.

The HUAWEI nova 5T sports a 6.26-inch HUAWEI Punch FullView Display, but weighs only 174 grams due to its wafer-thin 7.87 mm thickness, offering an immersive display on a slender body.

The HUAWEI nova 5 series comes available in three inventive color schemes: Crush Blue, Dark Black, and Midsummer Purple. A refined finish provides a unique texture, and accentuates lighting contrasts, creating a multi-layered 3D effect on a flat surface.

Equipped with four AI cameras that support high-definition, ultra wide-angle, macro, and depth of field photography, the HUAWEI nova 5T is able to capture rich and clear images within a single shot in all scenarios, from vast landscapes to close-up shots. It also combines AI-powered image semantic segmentation and partition optimization technology with the 48 MP HD lens, 16 MP wide-angle lens, 2 MP macro lens, and 2 MP bokeh lens which can clearly present details in the photo and balance the exposure under all lighting conditions, thus preventing blown highlights and crushed shadows.

The HUAWEI nova 5T saw a massive technological leap in the full-view display. The HUAWEI nova Series has one mission – to democratize Huawei’s technology and deliver a premium user experience to the masses and it is very affordable.
