Instagram’s black & white filters are sufficient for the masses but for those whose photography lives beyond their phone, Leica has just introduced the newest version of its M Monochrom, a camera specially designed for B&W photography. The difference is its 24 mp monochrome sensor, said to deliver pictures that are 100% sharper.
The Bandit action cam from TomTom offers some unique features like a “shake to edit” function that creates a ready-to-share edit of your highlights.

Real Hollywood filmmakers and moneyed hobbyists alike will be rushing to unload their outdated RED cameras from last year or trade them in for points toward this: RED’s newest, the Weapon ‘Vista Vision.’ This camera features a larger 35-megapixel sensor and will shoot up to 75 fps widescreen 8K recorded in RAW and scaled-down ProRes formats simultaneously.

Samsung’s NX500 packs the power of the brand’s bigger NX1 DSLR into a camera that will literally fit in your pocket. It boasts a mirrorless, 28 MP APS-C sensor, DRIMe V processor, & 4K video recording. The NX500 will ship mid-March in a kit that includes a 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 power zoom lens.

You know by now that the flash in your iPhone doesn’t quite cut it. Well, here’s one that’s way better.
