For the first time, Nikon introduces the latest images captured in space by D3S digital-SLR cameras and NIKKOR interchangeable lenses used by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) aboard the International Space Station (ISS).

The images exhibited were captured with equipment, including Nikon D3S digital-SLR cameras, NIKKOR lenses, Speedlights and other accessories, kept aboard the ISS. To date, NASA has captured more than 700,000 images with Nikon equipment carried into space. Among these many images, those rare and precious photos that can only be captured from space, as well as those captured under the extremely low-light conditions of space that exhibit the superior image quality of D3S noise suppression features are introduced.
Beautifully slim, light and easy to use, the Cyber-shot WX5 and TX9 boast exciting new features for outstanding still picture quality compared with conventional compact cameras. Capable of shooting detail-packed Full HD (1920 x 1080, 50i) AVCHD movie clips, they’re also the first Cyber-shot cameras from Sony that can capture amazing 3D images to enjoy on any 3D-compatible TV.

The new VPC-E1403 digital camera from SANYO exudes pure style in its shimmering metal housing. Its slim and compact dimensions (99 x 56.8 x 18.8 mm) mean it is always close at hand to capture those magic moments. The 14-megapixel resolution ensures every detail is caught to precision. The E1403 also cuts a fine figure when filming, recording videos in high definition at 720p, while the large 3 inch TFT LC colour display is ideal for reviewing images.
Refinement in detail
The E1403 from SANYO takes pictures in loving detail at resolutions of up to 14 megapixels. The compact camera also features an HD video function to record films in 720p (1,280 x 720 pixels, 30 fps). Plus, the 3x optical zoom brings even distant objects crystal-clear to the 3 inch TFT LC colour display. A host of macros with preset parameters for landscapes, sports or fireworks ensure that whatever the theme, it appears in its true light. Smile and blink recognition are included for perfect portraits. That’s because the E1403 recognises smiling faces itself and takes the snap automatically, without you having to press the release. If someone blinks when the shutter closes, the photographer is alerted by the blink recognition and can take another shot. The digital image stabiliser cancels out blurs, and the high light sensitivity of ISO 6400 means the E1403 can overcome unfavourable lighting conditions.
