Nikon D5300 Ditches AA Filter, Adds Wi-Fi And GPS



Anti-aliasing filters are the new, uh, thing that’s not popular any more. Ever since Fujifilm redesigned it’s sensors so that they no longer need a blurry filter in front to smooth out jaggy moiré patterns, everyone has been jumping on the anti-anti-aliasing wagon (not to be confused with the AA wagon, which is where inveterate boozers go to reduce their own blur).

Nikon AW1, The Waterproof, Interchangeable Lens Camera



The Nikon AW1 might look look as awesome as the Nikonos, Nikon’s previous waterproof camera (pictured below), but it is the first interchangeable-lens camera I can remember since that iconic design that can be taken underwater without a housing.

Nikon’s Amazing New D7100 Can’t Post To Instagram, Twitter



Is it just me, or have SLR cameras gotten really boring in the last few years? I mean, I know they’re awesome machines and all, but they don’t do anything new. And all the while the rest of the camera world is pulling farther and farther ahead.
