This post-CES time is always a popular time for camera companies to roll out updated versions of existing camera lines and Sony has done just that. The new a58 and NEX-3N haven't yet been announced here in the States, but they act as follow-ups to the a57 and the NEX-F3 respectively.
Back at CES, Pentax announced their new advanced compact camera. It has a 1/1.7-inch sensor and a 4x optical zoom lens. But, the real draw is its stylish brass body. We took it out on the streets of New York City to see how it handles.

A full-frame DSLR body has long been on the wish lists of many more photographers than could afford one. Now, both Nikon and Canon have announced cameras priced at about $2,100 (street, body only), pitching them as “low-cost” full-framers.
There's something entrancing about watching technology come together

It's kind of amazing to watch gear being assembled, as factories work with incredible precision to craft the technology that we use on a day to day basis. These two videos, one from Sony and one from Sigma, are very different — but are both extremely interesting for anyone who wants to see what goes on to create your favorite hardware.
