Lag correction circuit eliminates shutter lag variation in D1-series cameras
LPA Design, makers of flash and camera triggering devices including the PocketWizard, has developed a modification for the Nikon D1/X/H that virtually eliminates the 10ms or so variance in the shutter lag that is a quirk of the company's line of pro digital SLR cameras.

SIfeatures DCS 520 cover
Proving that even in the midst of a flurry of new digital cameras, and old workhorse camera can still produce an image or two: the October 1, 2001 edition of Sports Illustrated features a DCS 520 photo by Eliot Schechter on the cover (his first for SI). It was shot on assignment for Allsport. Schechter notes, however, than he "still can't wait for the (EOS-1D)."

Canon EOS-1D: a preview of Canon's pro digital SLR
The drought is almost over for pro Canon shooters. With the EOS-1D, announced this week and slated to ship in December at a US list price of US$6500, Canon has signaled they're ready to provide Nikon's D1H and D1x with some serious competition in the professional digital SLR segment.

Canon EOS-1D: a preview of the camera's included software
It would be putting it in the kindest terms to say that I haven't been a fan of Canon's digital SLR software up until now. The EOS-1D is poised to change that impression. In developing the EOS-1D's core application - Canon Digital Camera Plug-in/TWAIN 4.0 - Canon has adopted the features and framework of Kodak's Acquire Module, a Mac Photoshop plug-in/Windows TWAIN driver that Kodak had grown into a mature, full-featured package before abandoning its development in place of DCS Photo Desk late last year.

Alongside the EOS-1D, Canon today announced the EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM, a replacement for the EF 17-35mm f/2.8L USM. It features closer focusing, a new optical design that adds ultra-low dispersion (UD) glass elements and a street price that's expected to be about the same as the wide angle zoom it replaces.

ISO 1600 and beyond with the Nikon D1H and Kodak DCS 720X
There has never been a better time to be shooting sports with a Nikon-bodied digital camera. That's in large part because the current crop of peak action-friendly digital SLRs - the Nikon D1H, Nikon D1X and Kodak DCS 720x - boast strong autofocus systems, pro-class shutter lag times and decent performance at ISO settings that not long ago were absolutely off limits to digital photographers. ISO 800 is no longer a challenge; ISO 1600, ISO 3200 and in some cases even ISO 6400 is a possibility.

2001_09_18_cp5000
Nikon today has announced the US$1100 (list price) Coolpix 5000, a 5MP resolution camera that represents a significant design departure for the company's higher-end compact digital models. Cameras that swivel in the middle have dominated Nikon's premium lineup to date; with the Coolpix 5000, Nikon has focused on shrinking the camera as much as possible, without shrinking the feature set at the same time. The result is a camera that feels even smaller than the Coolpix 885 (though its actual dimensions are similar), with more pro-focused features and more detailed images than the Coolpix 995.
