Sony has recently announced a new camera to their family of SLRs, namely the SLT A58. This one is meant to replace the previous Sony A37 and Sony A57 models. It's got a respectable 20MP sensor and can shoot in continuous shooting mode at an impressive 8 frames a second.
 
Well, if you fancy having a good look at what's going on on Mars you can't go wrong by checking out Andrew Bodrov's panoramic photo. It's the result of stitching together 295 individual photographs from 2 separate cameras. A truly impressive accomplishment.
 

Nikon has announced it's newest digital SLR camera, the Nikon D7100. As a successor to the hugely popular Nikon D7000, the D7100 will come with weather sealing (very useful for when it's raining out) and an impressive 24 megapixel sensor.

In terms of the line-up in Nikon's SLR range, the D7100 will comfortably sit in between the Nikon D5200, considered to be a consumer level camera and the Nikon D600, the full frame monster.


 
I was fortunate enough to visit the London 2012 Olympics during the athletics, so thought it would be an ideal opportunity to try out the Canon 50D (thanks James). I've previously tested out both the Canon 40D, and Canon 60D, so putting the 50D through its paces seemed like a good idea! I took with me my trusty Sigma 70-300mm telephoto lens, as well as the Canon 17-40mm F4L for any wide-angle shots.
 
Under the price alerts tab, you can now find auctions that are soon to end where the current price is flagged as cheap compared to what the normal cost of the camera or lens would be.
 
To be able to photograph the Northern Lights, a bit of planning is required. In fact, the Northern Lights are only visible in the "Auroral Oval" at high latitudes around the Polar Circles, and where there is no light pollution, far from the big cities. Some well known areas for photographing the Northern Lights include Lapland and the north of Scandinavia, Alaska and Iceland. It's more difficult to find a good spot in the Southern hemisphere around the Antarctic Circle. In the Southern hemisphere the Southern Lights are called the Aurora Australis.
