Another BIG nail in the compact coffin, DynaOptics successfully developed a method to add optical zoom lens inside the smartphone camera module without increasing its size, but new technology needs more R&D before it adopted in large sacle, so it’s not coming too soon.
But Samsung already manages to compress a large 10X optical zoom lens in ultra compact size, Ulocked version available at Amazon
Smartphone’s camera image quality, resolution and sensor size has improved incredibly in the past few years. The credit for this advancement goes to the manufactures of the smartphone companies who are spending billions of money in R&D of technology and due to this dedicated development in the present time smartphone image quality can overcome the quality of pictures produced by several consumer level compact cameras.
Leading lens manufacture company “DynaOptics” wants to add optical zoom technology that would fit into even the very slim bodies of smartphones. s. To achieve this, DynaOptics does away with the conventional zoom setup, which involves lens elements moving along the optical axis to change focal length. Instead, it uses a new system that achieves the same effect with aspherical lens elements moving laterally on a micron-scale.
However presently the technology exists in only prototype format and the next task for DynaOptics would be to miniaturize it further and get it ready for mass production . The mass production will start probably by the first quarter of 2015, hence it is possible that people may see apple iPhone Plus 2 with optical zoom in 2016.
According to latest rumors surfaced over the web Samsung will announce Black and White APS-C sensor based mirrorless camera, the camera will use the same sensor as of NX300 camera without color array and AA filter.

Take a look at the specification comparison review between these two camera, Canon SX60 HS is a successor of Canon SX50 HS camera and it features improved optical zoom lens, more resolution and more….
New Features in Canon SX60 HS
Canon added a newly developed 16.1-megapixel High Sensitivity CMOS sensor and the DIGIC 6 image processor inside the Canon SX 60 HS camera, the ISO remains same however due to the new image processor the camera can now capture images of 16 MP resolution with continuous shooting speed of 6.4fps per second, In Canon SX50 HS it was limited to 12 MP @ 2.2 fps per second.
We can clearly see that the recently announced Canon SX60 HS camera features advance optical zoom lens that will give approx 15X more optical zoom lens than the SX50 HS camera,.
The Canon Built-in Wi-Fi allows you to wirelessly share your images to your smartphone, laptop or desktop via the Canon CameraWindow app, which is available as a free download.

Specification comparison between Nikon Nikon D750 vs Nikon D810 vs Nikon D610, the image is approx actual size representation of all the three camera… now take a look below
And the price difference
Clear Winner – Nikon D810
As we can clearly see that the Nikon D810 is offering better core specification by having ultra high-resolution sensor, no-optical low pass filter and same AF system. The ISO of Nikon D810 can be pushed down to ISO 32 , which will sure help you when you are looking for a longer exposure. The shutter range is also broad and camera can capture images continuous shooting up to 5 frames per second even having a 36 Megapixel large files.
Middle of the road – Nikon D750
I was expecting bit more from Nikon D750 announcement but it was a huge disappointment, Nikon D750 features same resolution as Nikon D610 camera but it does have low-pass filter, so technically according to Nikon itself the Nikon D610 will produce better image when compared to Nikon D750 camera due to absence of low pass filter inside Nikon D610.
Yes Nikon D750 advance AF system will sure attract sports shooter those who are looking for a affordable fullframe camera.
The Best Entry Level
Nikon D610 is a perfect camera when look at it’s price and core specification, the Nikon D610 doesn’t have better video mode like D750 or D810 or advance AF system but it comes without low-pass filter that will give you better image quality.
If you are looking for perfect entry level camera than Nikon D610 is a excellent option even today, if you are a sports shooter and want a affordable option than buy Nikon D750 and if you have a budget of $3K than buy Nikon D810, The D810 is better than both.
