Don't let its small, unorthodox shape fool you — the Centr Panoramic Camera is serious tech. Already in use by the likes of Red Bull, National Geographic, and the Army, this nifty device uses 4 HD cameras to stitch together 360º 4K resolution footage in real time. Features include a splash-proof body, a quick-release battery, built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth LE, 8GB of internal storage with MicroSD expansion, three microphones, and the ability to shoot 20MP stills.
Incredibly sexy and incredible expensive, Leica T Camera will fit right in with the rest of the brand's impressive lineup. Built in and around a single piece of machined aluminum (constructed as a partnership with Audi), shipping in either black or natural finishes, and kitted out with an APS-C 16-megapixel sensor courtesy of Sony, this lightweight shooter is a thing of absolute beauty. Initially available with two lenses, it also sports a large touchscreen, WiFi connectivity, and a smartphone app to control its functionality, there are plenty of cameras out there that do what it can do, but few that look this good doing it.
The first Lytro Camera was an interesting piece of kit, using light field technology to take photos that could be refocused after the fact. But with a maximum resolution of 1080x1080 and an unusual elongated body, it was more tech demo than usable tool. The Lytro Illum Camera looks to change all that. Built around a more traditional body, it features an 8x zoom lens, the ability to focus on objects that are literally touching the lens, an SD slot for storage, and a 40 Megaray CMOS sensor that works in concert with a Snapdragon processor to produce 4MP images that offer all the refocusing magic of the tiny pics from the original.
