If shopping blogs stop posting new cameras every week maybe the manufacturers would quit introducing new models every couple days. Yeah, right! That’ll never happen, so let’s get on with it. This here is the Lumix GX1. It’s new. It has more features than anyone needs, like stereo sound to go with full HD footage; it also takes pictures, huge ones.
Whether you ski, bike, boat, surf, or just shoot personal movies at home, you should be shooting with a GoPro HD camera. Their pro-quality mini POV-digi cams are the best all-weather-over-the-handlebars-lost-my-front-teeth-memory-makers you can get. 1080p, variable frame rates, 170º FOV, all that. Photo: Dan Bracaglia
The D-Lux 5 is a peerless, high-powered digital point-and-shoot from Leica, makers of the world’s best cameras. Technically, this new Titanium model is the same as the black one, just sexier and a little bit lighter.
With all the smart technology and after effects, it’s getting harder & harder to take bad photos. So why do yours still suck? User error? Bad aim? No matter what you’re lacking, the Lytro is designed to correct all your photography shortcomings in a small, easy-to-use package. Capture the entire light field. What does that mean? It means you can focus on certain details of your photo after the fact. That’s smart.
Nine months or so must have passed because the Kings of planned obsolescence, Canon Camera, are releasing another new flagship model. If you know you need the newest and best, this is your body but unless you’re a professional, you’ll have no idea what the improvements and upgrades in this new model mean.
Handing some random your camera and asking them to snap your picture is awkward. It gets even weirder when they start telling you to say cheese. If you like your pics with no cheese, get this low-profile GorillaPod Micro 250. It’s light, compact, and cheese-free. Source
It seems like every week some camera company is revolutionizing photography again. Nikon is one of the few brands that may actually be doing it. Their latest creation doesn’t appear to have any buttons or controls, maybe what’s revolutionary is the fact that you can’t screw up the photo.
They should really just be up-front about it and call the MV800 the PervCam. Seriously, Samsung cites the ability to shoot “discreetly” from any angle as the main attribute of this model. Think about that for a second. Okay, now go buy one.
Of course your homemade videos lack the smooth, fluid cinematics of a real movie. That’s because movies are shot using cameras on wheels or dollies, so they can sweep through the shots, creating a smooth, natural pan. Now an MIT engineering student has created a simpler, more portable and much cheaper way for you to get the dolly effect. It’s called Cineskate, basically, a tripod on wheels.
