Now you can get the unique look of Lomography's Diana+ immediately with the Diana Instant Back+ ($95-$190). Available with or without the camera, the Instant Back installs onto the back of any Diana camera, allowing you to use any Diana+ lens or accessory to create photos that print out and expose in about 90 seconds, just like a Polaroid — but with way more creative possibilities.
While it might not be fair to call the new JVC Everio X ($1,000; June 2009) just another camera, it's probably not fair to call it a camcorder, either. Yet another example of a device that mixes impressive still video capabilities with equally impressive video, the X features a 10.3 megapixel sensor that lets you shoot 9 megapixel stills, 1080p video, simultaneous five-megapixel digital stills while recording Full HD video, 600fps slow-motion videos, and more. It's versatility that fits in your pocket.
The new Sony HX1 Cyber-Shot ($500) looks like it has it all. It's basically our digital camera wish list wrapped up in one device. With a 9.1 megapixel Exmor CMOS image sensor at its heart, the HX1 features a pro-quality 28mm wide-angle lens with 20x optical zoom. In addition to being able to achieve burst speeds of 10 frames per second (read: 10 action photos in one second), the camera has new sweep panorama technology, which can help you take 224-degree panorama shots in one simple press-and-sweep motion. The HX1 also has 1080p HD video recording capabilities, recording at 30 frames per second using the MPEG4 AVC/H.264 format.
