FEATURES & COLUMNS
NEW PRODUCTS: SONY DSC-RX1
The extraordinary new Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1 digital camera packs an advanced 35mm full-frame 24.3 MP Exmor CMOS sensor and exceptionally Carl Zeiss 35mm f/2.0 fixed lens into a highly portable, lightweight camera body. Measuring approximately 4.5 inches wide by 3 inches tall and weighing just over a pound, it's significantly smaller and lighter than any full-frame DSLR yet sacrifices nothing in terms of image quality, HD video quality or manual control.
MODEL WATCH: NICOLE DOYLE
20 year old model Nicole Doyle has a versatile look that works equally well for high fashion editorials and streetwear campaigns. Due to her busy schedule Nicole will only be in New Zealand for a couple of weeks before returning to New York (where she is represented by Major), so get in touch with KHM quick smart if you'd like to book her for a shoot.
NEW PRODUCTS: LEICA S
The new Leica S is the logical further development of the successful Leica S2 professional medium format digital camera. Its numerous new features and functions are all designed to meet the precise needs of professional photographers.
