This camera looks so good because the picture you’re looking at was taken with another Alpa 12 TC. That’s a joke, but why not joke? The average Joe can’t even appreciate what this camera can do. The Alpa 12 TC is pro-quality equipment, obviously. The modular design allows it to shoot film or digital with a whopping 60MP file size – plus, it’s fully integrated to work with the full range of Alpa lenses. Even though you could do absolutely nothing with it, this camera does it all.
The latest edition to Canon’s ultra-portable Elph-series brings big-boy functionality to a little shooter. Incredible images in low light? With the back-illuminated CMOS sensor-driven HS SYSTEM and f/2.0 lens…it’s now possible. Capturing the game’s winning shot? The High Speed Burst Mode & Super Slow Motion video recording have you covered. And yes, it records in 720p HD.

The miniaturization of tech continues. Panasonic’s AG-3DA1 is the world’s first integrated twin-lens full HD 3D camcorder. You probably aren’t in the market for this beast – but it does open up interesting options to a new range of amateur film-makers. Now, it’s only a matter of time before Youtube launches a 3D category. Scary.
FugiFilm climbs on the 3D bandwagon with this sharp little snapper. FinePix simultaneously captures images with two lenses & CCDs. A built-in 3D processor morphs the graphics before displaying the final picture on a 3D LCD screen. Chunky wayfarers not required.

No, this shooter isn’t vintage. But, the E-P1 pays homage to the “Pen F” circa 1959. Olympus’ new, interchangeable-lens digital boasts a 12.3-megapixel sensor capable of both still and HD video capture. This little guy looks like dad’s old 35mm, but with a 21st century spec list.
