Most pro photo cameras use one large sensor to capture a single large image. The Light L16 device uses 16 separate sensors and lens modules that each take separate images (10 each) at different focal lengths, and then combine them into a single 52 megapixel composite image. The smartphone-style design makes it a lighter, smaller alternative to carrying a big DSLR without sacrificing image quality.
The latest 4K cinema camera from RED is their smallest yet; offering the full capabilities of the much vaunted RED Dragon in a form factor that weighs just 3.5 pounds, perfect for shooting with drones and gimbals. Like other RED cameras, the Raven is a modular design, allowing you to configure your rig to your exact shooting needs.
This little drone packs a ton of function into a small, lightweight package. The camera has a Sony 4K Exmor sensor on an ultralight gimbal for stable, super hi-res video & images. The drone itself uses GPS linked to your phone to automatically track you overhead as well as programmable flight options. Even the blades are protected so you don’t lose a finger.
Instead of filming everything that passes in front of the camera, like a GoPro, the graava is a smart camera that uses artificial intelligence to film only what it thinks you’d want it to film; the cool stuff. It uses 5 different sensors to determine what is interesting, dynamic, and worthy & creates an automatically edited highlight reel while also retaining the unedited clip as a backup.
Canon’s latest high-end camera is a serious shot in the dark. So punny: but it’s got an ISO equivalent of 4 million, so it is designed to literally, shoot in the dark. For media pros, reality TV shows, or homemade horror films, the ME20F-SH will get the shot under a moonless night sky. It features a full-frame 35mm CMOS sensor & fits all EF mount Canon lenses.
Nokia’s entry into the world of virtual reality starts right here. The OZO is a 360º camera designed for the creation of all sorts of VR content. It features 8 synchronized global shutter cameras for capturing stereoscopic 3D video & 8 integrated microphones for full-spectrum sound. OZO will be available in the U.S. later this year.
Offering 4K UHD in a camera that fits in the palm of your hand, the E1 supports all Panasonic & Olympus MFT lenses to deliver incredible low light performance, all controlled by an app with your Apple or Android phone.
Panasonic’s latest micro four-thirds model, the GX8 offers a 20MP sensor, the largest ever in this camera category. This means not just higher resolution but also a higher dynamic range, dual image stabilization, and faster sensor readout. This increase in tech capability also comes with a slightly larger body size, and beefier grip, all made of magnesium-alloy, resulting in a more substantial-feeling camera.
Sphericam 2 is a spherical, 360º camera; the first to offer global shutter at 60FPS and 4K. It allows you to capture everything around you in high-res with no blind spots & you can watch your videos on a VR headset like Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR or Google Cardboard or on your iPad, tablet, PC or phone.
The latest cam from GoPro is 50% smaller and 40% lighter than any before it. The Session is also totally waterproof to 33′ without the need for an external case. The feature set is nearly identical to the original Hero, minus the 4k capability of the higher priced models, however one thing that might not sit well with long day trip users is the lack of an external battery.
