Enough to make your smart phone feel kinda stupid, actually.

Using info coming through the lens, the camera actually tells you how to get the shot.

Choose the fisheye or combination macro/wide-angle lens & shoot like a pro.
You’ll never forgive yourself if you don’t bring the video camera on your vacation to Bali. So, make sure it survives the rickshaw ride to the eco-lodge with this inflatable camera bag from Kata.

Why does the your kid’s soccer game video look as bad as the one your dad shot of you with his shoulder-mounted VHS camera? Maybe it’s your lame little camera.

Lumix has packed every conceivable (and even a few inconceivable) features into this small camera. The DMC-G2 comes with a 14-42mm lens, but also runs an array of interchangeable lenses. It features a huge 12MP optical sensor & a touch-sensitive control panel on the oversize LCD screen. It shoots 720p HD video. There’s even a sensor in the viewfinder that registers when your eye is close to the camera to disengage touch-controls on the LCD. That way your nose won’t change the settings and ruin the shot. Seriously, it has that.
It’s only a little bigger than your iPhone and shoots crispy HD video. On top of that, the Cyber-shot TX9 features Sony’s 3D Intelligent Sweep, which lets you shoot ultra-wide panoramas by just panning the camera. It can also shoot bursts up to 12 frames-per-second for sequences and has a background de-focus for isolating your subject. All this means that no matter how clueless you are, you’ll get pro results.
