Need to record an interview, event, or meeting without anyone knowing? Stow this Button Spy Camera ($50) behind your shirt. Designed to stick through a button hole with the main electronics remaining hidden, this miniature camera takes 480p video and can snap p1280x1024 JPEG stills, all of which it records to 4GB of built-in flash memory. Sure, the specs are nothing mind-blowing, but to be able to gather intel without being caught, it's not bad. Just don't forget to wear something with black buttons — we have a feeling it might not work so well otherwise. [Scouted by Brandon]
Not content to live life as an Android-powered point-and-shoot, the Polaroid iM1836 Android Camera ($400) combines the power of a smartphone with the flexibility and optical quality of an interchangeable lens camera. It comes standard with a 10-30mm zoom lens, and offers compatibility with all Micro Four Thirds lenses via an adapter. Specs include an 18 megapixel sensor, Android 4.1, built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, 1080p video recording, a 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen, and one-button sharing to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, and Vimeo. The countdown to the first Android-powered DSLR starts... now.
Bored with the same old point-and-shoot designs? The Canon PowerShot N Camera ($300) should pique your interest. Sporting an unusual squarish shape, the PowerShot N eschews the typical top-mounted zoom ring and shutter combination by moving both controls to rings around the lens. A 2.8-inch tilting touchscreen LCD comprises the rear of the device, letting you shoot photos at nearly any angle, while a 12.1 megapixel sensor, 28mm wide-angle lens with 8x optical zoom, and a DIGIC 5 Image Processor provide superb images. Other features include built-in Wi-Fi for convenient sharing, a new Creative Shot mode that automatically creates a series of five "artistic" shots with varying composition, lighting, and color from each photo, and 1080p video recording.
