Shipping in early November, this is seriously the only point-and-shoot you ever need to consider buying.
The secret to this point & shoot? The lens is mounted at an angle.
Totally buying one of these.
Cisco bought cameramaker Flip a couple of years ago, and has now killed the product in the name of corporate austerity. Too bad it was a profitable division. Even though its features are now duplicated by smartphones, it was still nice to have an HD video recording device that I was more comfortable dropping or passing around. And I guess I should have bought that Kodak ZX3 instead.
The Fuuvi Pick is a basically a USB stick that also happens to be a camera. 1280 x 1024 images, 720×480 video (at 30 frames per second) gets stored on Micro SD cards, with a F2.8 lens that shoots at 100 ISO.
First Nikon went after Canon’s G12, now they’re going after Canon’s S95. Introducing the Nikon Coolpix P300. It’s got the goods: manual controls, an f1.8 lens, 12MP CMOS sensor, 920K resolution 3″ screen and 1080p Full HD movie recording.
It looks like an Omnibot. Need this.
“3D in Double Full HD, 3D viewing directly on 3.5″ LCD—no need for 3D glasses, Full HD 2D playback from 3D recordings, 1920×1080 Full HD 60p/24p recording, 10x optical zoom in 3D”
Now we’re getting somewhere: The Fujifilm Finepix XP30 is water/shock/dust/freeze proof (waterproof to 5 meters), has built in GPS photo tagging, image stabilization, and 720p HD video with a 14 megapixel sensor.
There are lots of smaller 3D cameras coming out of the Consumer Electronics Show this year, and mostly it’s a race to the bottom in quality and prices. Sony’s entry will likely offer slicker build quality – along with 1080P full HD. Available for preorder now: the 3D Bloggie Touch MHS-FS3.
Oversized sunglasses that both take and display pictures. A camera that fuses polaroid technology with the digital age. A handheld printer. These are the results of Polaroid’s collaboration with the Haus of Gaga.
The GL30 camera is definitely the highlight here coming with the ability to choose which pictures you want printed, a swivel LCD display, and just a solid overall design. The camera is due out towards the end of the year. Details after the jump.
I’ve been watching these videos all morning long, and am definitely feeling the need to add some activity to my life again. The GoPro HD Hero Camera is as first person as you can really get with a video camera, and the quality is unbelievable.
