Olympus just unveiled the AIR Camera, a handheld interchangeable lens camera completely controlled with smartphones.

The DxO ONE unit plugs into the Lightning port & offers a bright f/1.8 aperture and a 20.2MP sensor as well as a manually adjustable aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings. Due for release in September.
One of the limitations of most compact cameras is a lack of zoom capability, making it impossible to get those nice, compressed long-lens shots. Canon’s G3X solves this problem by offering a whopping zoom range equivalent to a 24-600mm lens. Its back-illuminated CMOS sensor captures 20MP images & of course 1080p HD video.

Nest Thermometer, Nest Smoke Alarm, & yes, now Nest Cam. It’s a home security cam that shoots 1080P HD & is packed with the same smart, simple features and clean design that have made the brand’s other products so popular.

Sony’s a7 RII brings pro-camera features to the compact category and the heart of this new camera is its incredible sensor, a back-illuminated full-frame Exmor R CMOS with a 42-megapixel resolution and an ISO sensitivity of 102,400. This technology makes the a7 RII the world’s first digital camera to offer in-camera full-frame format 4K recording capacity.
The new Leica Q is a fixed-lens prosumer camera that features a 24 MP full-frame sensor and super-bright and super-sharp 28mm f/1.7 prime lens that can also shoot macro. Switchable frame lines for both 35mm & 50mm cropping help add range to the limits of the fixed lens design.
Bigger, better, more. You get all that your photography demands in the Phase One XF camera system. It offers massive 14-stop dynamic range & super-high resolution with its medium-format sensor, which is more than 2.5 times larger than a standard DSLR sensor. It shoots 80MP stills in 16-bit color with a full range of available Leaf Shutter lenses, and features a new patent-pending and fully controlled autofocus system, called the Honeybee Autofocus Platform, or HAP-1.
Bridging the gap between the entry-level Hero & the higher-end Hero4 Silver, GoPro has just released the Hero+LCD. It features a built-in touchscreen and shoots 1080p 60fps like the Silver but with a burst rate of 5FPS and it shoots 8MP stills. It also offers wi-fi & bluetooth, which the entry level Hero does not.
The X-T10 from Fujifilm certainly doesn’t use film although from a few feet away you might mistake this for a vintage 35mm. It also features “film simulation” settings that mimic old film types but it’s not all about tech-nostalgia. The X-T10 uses an APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor to shoot 16MP photos as well as HD video.
