Sony Alpha DSLR

It might still be in the concept stage, but that doesn't mean we can't dream about having a Sony Compact Alpha DSLR ($TBA) in our bag or pocket. Powered an Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor, these compact concepts also offer interchangeable lenses, DSLR-level controls, and full AVCHD video capability for high-quality HD video capture. Expect a fairly hefty price tag if/when these become available.

  • ZipShot Tripod

    Take a full-size tripod with you everywhere with the ZipShot Tripod ($50). Weighing in at only 11 oz. and folding up to a manageable 15 inches, the ZipShot features a unique design that sees the 'pods spider like aluminum legs unfold to provide a stable, 44-inch tall platform for the metal ball-head. With a maximum weight load of 3 lbs., it can handle all but the heaviest SLRs and lenses with ease. [Thanks, Bob]

  • Canon EOS Rebel T2i

    And so the DSLR wars continue. The Canon EOS Rebel T2i ($900) is the latest salvo from Canon, offering a number of improvements over the T1i it replaces. Highlights include 3.7fps shooting, ISO up to 6400, an 18-megapixel CMOS sensor, 1080p video at both 30 and 24 fps with full manual exposure control, an iFCL 63-zone dual-layer metering system, a 3-inch LCD, support for SDXC memory cards, and a 9-point AF system. If you're already a Canon shooter, or simply want to save some money, the T2i also comes in a body-only package for $800, giving you $100 to put towards a better lens than the middling 18-55 kit glass — in fact, it'll pretty much cover Canon's base 50mm f/1.8 prime.
