You can’t shoot all your videos with a helmet-cam so when you’re done playing, Canon’s new 70D will help document the rest of your life. This camera replaces the outgoing 60D & for upgrades it got built-in Wi-Fi, Near Field Communication (NFC) sharing, a 3-inch LCD touchscreen and a bump up in megapixels. But the key upgrade for video is Canon’s all-new “Dual Pixel CMOS” focusing system. And yes, it also shoots photos.
Unlike most mini POV cameras, the Flytecam doesn’t need a special waterhousing or shockproof case to go from the turf to the surf and back. This thing is all-terrain. It features a rugged, rubberized body that is waterproof to 3 meters and shoots full HD 1080P video. A wide 120º lens & 60fps slow-mo mode brings the action up close.
For a little guy, the new Pentax Q7 is powerful, offering a 12.4 MP CMOS sensor in the world’s smallest & lightest interchangeable lens system. It also comes in a rainbow of custom colors.
To create the new Galaxy S4 Zoom, Samsung took an Android 4.2-powered smartphone and grafted it onto a 16-megapixel point & shoot with a 10X zoom. With this thing, you might be able to win Instagram without buying followers. Available late 2013.
It looks like a vintage knapsack but inside it’s got a padded, 31-liter, adjustable camera pod with 12 dividers for a custom DSLR or video camera set-up. There’s also a padded sleeve for an iPad or 11-inch MacBook Air, external pockets, and the design is backed with a lifetime guarantee. via
It feels good to have the right tool for the job. If the job in question happens to be shooting a time lapse HDR video, the Brinno TLC 200 Pro is the sledgehammer you were looking for. With a massive image sensor, the camera captures ultra-high dynamic range—115db, for crisp clear TL videos even in low-light conditions. There are also 97 other sweet features you may want to look into.
Hunters, birdwatchers and sly, voyeuristic beach creepers will all appreciate the recording capability of these digital binoculars from Sony. With a zoom range from .8X to 25X and Optical Steady Shot image stabilizers, they allow you to spot, autofocus, and record your favorite species in stereoscopic 3D HD.
This new Lumix LF1 features Leica optical technology, a sensitive 12.1 MP MOS sensor & it shoots HD video, too. But what sets it apart is the electronic viewfinder offering a 100% field of view that assures accurate framing and high visibility live-view even in bright sunlight. The LF1 also features a manual control ring for zoom, aperture, ISO, and shutter speed adjustments the old-fashioned way.
Before you go buy that big, bulky DSLR camera you’ve been dreaming about, consider Ricoh’s new GR Digital V. It’s the world’s first compact camera with an APS-C optical sensor; same as the ones used in pro DSLRs. This sensor captures razor-sharp 16.6MP images, HD video, and shoots in 4 fps bursts. Unlike the big cameras this one is still light, small & portable.
Nope, there’s no film to load in this new digital video camera. In fact, there’s no such thing as “digital film.” Just the same, Blackmagic is claiming it. What they really mean is wide dynamic range that creates a “film look” which is to say, you can make what you shoot look old/lo-fi/cinematic. In addition to all types of contemporary tech features, this camera has a Super 16 sensor that supports all types of old, film quality lenses, too.
