Web Pricing - Why are the prices on this web site different from those in your stores?
Our stores are staffed with a wide variety of product specialists and support staff, each of whom make an effort to be responsive and pleasant to deal with. We're also able to provide a customer with any item from our inventory to inspect and test. The cost of this customer service is an increased overhead for our in-store prices, to pay for the store space, the training of our employees, and other considerations not present online. We're happy to offer reduced prices online and hope that you will be satisfied with your purchase no matter where you decide to buy.
The GXR Digital Camera Body with P10 28-300mm Lens Kit provides you with both the P10 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 VC Lens for Camera Unit 3 and the GXR Digital Camera Body. The P10 fits nicely into the GXR Body, easily sliding in and attaching without exposing the lens or the sensor to dust particles. Unlike traditional SLR/DSLR camera systems, which require the user to remove the lens, exposing both it and the sensor to millions of particles, ultimately causing a Photoshop nightmare or blemished photos.
The P10 is a wide to telephoto lens, or better known as a zoom lens. However, this Camera Unit, is more than just a lens, as the name implies. In the unit is, in essence, an entire camera. While the GXR Body is needed to power the camera and provide the LCD screen and controls, the P10 is self-contained. Inside this dust-proof unit is a 1/2.3" CMOS sensor and the Smooth Imaging Engine IV which processes each photo for storage on the memory card and helps the camera functions run smoothly. In addition to 10Mp JPEG and RAW photos, the sensor also provides for 1280 x 720 HD video capture as well.
An innovative camera system expanding your range of expression with interchangeable units - GXR is a new camera system that consists of a body and camera units. Each camera unit contains a lens (focal lengths differ between units), an image sensor of optimum type and size for the unit, and an image processing engine. By changing units, the photographer can handle a diverse range of scenes in a way that satisfies sophisticated requirements for photo expression. The slide mechanism adopted for attaching and removing camera units enables changes to be made quickly and securely.
Compact, high-performance lens design enabled by the interchangeable unit system - It is the lens that gives life to the photograph. In interchangeable lens camera systems up to now, the distance from the mount and the back of the lens to the sensor image plane was subject to requirements for flange back distance and back focal length. This made it difficult to achieve both compactness and high optical performance. Eliminating the lens mount, however, means that the back focal length can be freely defined for the GXR, enabling the new system to use the most optically efficient lens designs and giving it excellent potential for future expansion. This practical concept has given birth to camera units that achieve compact size without compromising image quality.
Optimum tuning to realize all the capabilities of the lens and the image sensor - In order to make the best use of the inherent power of the lens and the image sensor, the ideal solution is to combine both in a single unit. Consider, for example, the low-pass filter covering the surface of the image sensor. The dilemma faced is that while the filter helps prevent color noise and color moir
