The images are captured using a variety of cameras. The main camera is a Nikon 3100. The videos are captured on a Sony HDR-XR105 and some images have been captured on a Panasonic DMC-TZ3 .
The lightweight Sony HDR-XR105E digital Handycam camcorder has a built-in 80GB hard-drive that is capable of recording up to 33 hours of video of stunning 1920 x 1080 HD video. Without a tape or disc in sight, recording video to a hard drive offers you random access to quickly locate desired material, the ability to effortlessly delete unwanted material and easily rearrange the playback sequence. The compact HDR-XR105E also features a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens with 10x optical and up to 120x digital-zoom, while a clever zoom microphone helps pick up the dialogue of your shooting subjects from afar. It also records immersive 5.1 surround sound too for extra atmosphere when played back through your home cinema. Youll enjoy your home movies in excellent quality with low noise thanks to the Exmor CMOS image sensor, while x.v.Colour mode makes for vivid, lifelike colours. Clever face detection technology for video and photos automatically gives clearer, natural looking faces, so your loved ones will always look their best. Still pictures look great too thanks to 4 megapixels. There's a large, widescreen 2.7 inch touch panel LCD screen for easy scene selection and SteadyShot optical image stabilization to ensure clean, sharp results when youre shooting handheld. The HDR-XR105E provides true 16:9 widescreen recording, resulting in a wider angle of view - ideal for playback on widescreen TVs and on the camera itself via the LCD screen. Finally, a Handycam docking station is also provided for easy charging..
The Nikon D3100 employs Nikon's latest breakthrough technology to deliver superb results. A newly developed DX-format CMOS sensor with 14.2 effective megapixels works in tandem with new EXPEED 2 image processing engine to produce highly detailed images containing rich tonal gradations and faithful color. This combination also helps produce beautifully defocused backgrounds - a hallmark of quality digital SLR cameras. In addition, a maximum ISO of 3200 (expandable to ISO 12800 equivalent using the Hi 2 setting) allows you to shoot without worrying about camera-shake blur..
The Panasonic DMC TZ3 is a super zoom digital camera inside a much more compact body then you will normally find with this type of camera. On top of this the DMC TZ3 also sports a wide angle lens. A wide angle lens comes in useful for landscape style shots or groups of people. Indeed any type of photo where you need to squeeze in a wide scene will be helped by this type of lens. Another difference from a typical super zoom digital camera is that the DMC TZ3 does not offer a range of really advanced features such as manual exposure controls. This makes it attractive to someone who would like a longer lens, but would still like the simplicity of a point and shoot digital camera.
This camera has seven megapixels and the lens offers 10x zoom. Image stabilisation is also available
