In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at the announcements coming from the Consumer Electronics Show in Law Vegas. Those include products from Canon, Nikon and Panasonic.


Adorama has pre-order options for all of the following products:

  • Five new PowerShots include two megazooms and three ELPHS. The 50x zoom PowerShot SX540 HS ($399.99) and the 42x PowerShot SX420 IS ($299.99) join the 12x ELPH 360HS ($209.99), 10x ELPH 190 IS ($159.99) and 8x ELPH 180 ($119.99).
  • The Selphy CP1200 Wireless Compact Photo Printer ($105.99) can print 54 photos on a single battery charge.
  • Canon UBUPrints is a new service that "provides influential social media photographers with the ability to take their Instagram photography to a new level of sharing by offering exclusive 13x19-inch prints that are meant to not only reinforce a connection with their followers but to also channel the power of the printed image."


Nikon held a press conference to announce its new D5 flagship, the D500 (D300S replacement) and a new strobe. Adorama links are in the listings.

  • The new FX-format, full frame flagship D5 features a newly-developed 20.8-Mp CMOS sensor, new autofocus system with a dedicated processor, up to 14-fps continuous mode with mirror lock up, EXPEED 5 engine, 4K UHD video at 30 fps, ISO 100 to 102,400 and an XGA LCD touchscreen. Available in March for $6499.95 with either dual XQD or dual CompactFlash slots.
  • The new DX-format, APS-C D500 features a new 20.9-Mp CMOS sensor with an ISO range of 100 to 51,200, 10 fps continuous mode, 79-image buffer, a high resolution touchscreen LCD, 4K UHD video at 30 fps. Available in March for $1,999.95 (body only) or with a 16-80mm f3.5-5.6 VR Nikkor zoom for $3,069.65.
  • The SB-5000 Speedlight with an internal cooling system operates on radio frequency up to 98 feet and can control up to six groups/18 Speedlights. Available in March for $599.95.
  • Nikon has announced two 18-55mm Nikkors, one with Vibration Reduction and one without, featuring stepping motors for "fast and quiet autofocusing."


Adorama has pre-order options for all of the following products:

  • With a 1" sensor and a 10x zoom, the compact Lumix ZS100 ($699.99) begs to travel. The 4K video won't hurt either.
  • A new Lumix Leica Vario-Elmar lens ($1,799.99) is a 100-400mm f4.0-6.3 for the Micro 4/3 mount.
  • The Lumix ZS60 ($449.99) is an update of the ZS50 travel digicam with a 24-720mm zoom, 18-Mp MOS sensor and Venus Engine image processor. It too captures 4K video.
