NEC Display Solutions NP-PE401H
September 16, 2014
With its 1,920-by-1,080 resolution and 4,000-lumen rating, the DLP-based NEC Display Solutions NP-PE401H ($1,999) is of obvious interest if you need to show images with lots of fine detail at an image size suitable for a midsize room. It's a little short on convenience features; for instance, it has a 1.1x zoom. But that's why NEC calls it an entry-level, professional-installation projector. More important is that it does a good job on all the basics, making it worth considering. The NP-PE401H is a step up in resolution from our Editors' Choice for high-resolution projectors. The 1,400-by-1,050 Canon REALiSSX80 Mark II offers other advantages that make up for the slightly lower resolution, including unusually capable color management. However, if you're more concerned with showing a lot of clearly readable detail at once, the NP-PE401H's higher resolution can make it the better fit.

Canon's Photokina Rollout Highlighted by EOS 7D Mark II
September 15, 2014
Canon is announcing more than half a dozen new products at Photokina, but none are more anticipated than the EOS 7D Mark II SLR.The camera's release has been rumored ahead of every major trade show in recent memory, but it's now a reality. The replacement for the company's flagship APS-C SLR includes a new 20-megapixel image sensor with Dual Pixel Phase AF, a 65-point focus system with all cross-type sensors, and 10fps burst shooting. There are a lot of focus points, so Canon is using a lever system to move the active point, a departure from the more typical directional pad. The new 7D is powdered by dual Digic 6 image processors and supports a native ISO 100-16000 range, with sensitivities as high as ISO 51200 available in extended mode. Its body is sealed against dust and splashes, the shutter is rated to 200,000 cycles, and GPS isbuilt in.
