If you’re in the market for a new camera then definitely consider the new Samsung GALAXY Camera. It’s pretty cool: think smartphone-cool but for your camera. It’s a great looking device and has many features that ultimately make taking great photos easier like the “Smart Pro Mode,” which allows you to easily choose the right setting for your particular situation. And that’s always a good thing. It also shoots video and records at an amazing 120 frames per second and 720×480 resolution, allowing you to playback your footage in slow-motion with crystal clear quality. There’s an in-camera editor that utilizes Read More
The Apex HD+ follows in the tradition of the Oakley Airwave Goggles in that it is for the multi-tasking skier who can do a lot more on the slopes than simply ski. While the Oakley’s were more about controlling music selection, mapping positions, and keeping track of your buddies, the HD+ is purely a digital camera, and a damn fancy one at that. Instead of trying to snap photos with your poles tucked in to your armpits, oblivious of the fast-approaching cliff, you can use this to take a true POV picture of everything you see. The Apex HD+ captures Read More
While optic technology on camera phones has advanced tenfold, you still can’t go about filming with an iPhone and expect respect as a ‘serious photographer’. For that, you’ll have to look to the likes of the Blackmagic Cinema Camera. Although the features and benefits list on the Blackmagic Cinema Camera is impossibly long – possibly rivaling that of the freakin’ Space Shuttle’s manual or the Internal Revenue Code – certain things about this compact, semi-pro/pro (depending on whom you ask) camera stand out to us. First, its 2.5K image sensor with 13 dynamic range (DR) stops allows the operator to Read More
While some of you may not understand what anyone could possibly need 256GB for, professional photographers and filmmakers are already foaming at the mouth. Lexar has just unveiled their latest product, a 256GB SDXC UHS-I Secure Digital memory card with a 400x write speed. This industry first allows you to capture, store, and transfer a ridiculous amount of high-quality photos and 1080p full-HD and 3D video with a minimum guaranteed transfer speed of 60MB per second. But… at $900, you might want to get the charge card out for this one.
To celebrate their history in space, Hasselblad is releasing this new Lunar camera. The Hasselblad Lunar is a mirrorless, interchangeable lens camera. It features a curvy, high grade aluminum space age body, either a carbon fiber or wood grip, a Bionz processor, a APS-C 24.3 megapixel sensor, HD recording, a 100 to 16000 ISO range, virtually no shutter lag (0.02 sec), and a swiveling three-inch display.

You want the quality and convenience of a compact digital camera, but you want your prints immediately. No problem. The Polaroid Z2300 comes with a 10 megapixel sensor, 3-inch LCD display, and SD compatible for expanded memory, up to 32GB. But what makes this camera special is its built-in ZINK Technology printer. Users can capture, store, edit, upload to any social media platform, and print 2 x 3-inch images in less than a minute… no ink necessary. The images are smudge-proof, water-resistant, tear-resistant, and have a sticky back. The camera is also capable of capturing 720p video.
Technology is constantly closing the gap between DSLRs and point-and-shoots. You no longer need to own a $3,000+ camera to take great photos, and Sony looks to be continuing that trend. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 was specifically built to deliver high-end image quality and handling, while remaining compact. The most impressive upgrade being a 1-inch, 20.2 megapixel CMOS sensor. For comparison, the sensor has an area that’s about four times larger than traditional point-and-shoots – allowing it to take in more light. Additional features include a Carl Zeiss f/1.8 lens with 3.6x zoom, BIONZ image processor (for ISO settings up to 25,600), 10 fps shooting, 3-inch Read More
We all need a camera that looks as hot as the Ferrari we’re driving around. Or the Hyundai… whatever. The H4D-40 Ferrari Limited Edition features a 40 Megapixel medium format sensor, Hasselblad True Focus, and an 80mm lens. It’s produced using Ferrari’s special color “Rosso Fuoco” – a 3 layer paint job that is rumored to cost $18,000 when applied to the supercar. The camera is displayed in a hand-made glass topped case with luxurious lining, dual storage layers, and the distinctive Ferrari Racing Shield. Oh, and you get a hand-signed personal welcome letter from Dr. Larry Hansen, the Chairman and CEO of Hasselblad. Read More
