Garmin Virb Camera

You're all familiar with the standard feature-set of an action-sports camera by now, so it should come as no surprise that the Garmin Virb Camera ($400) is waterproof, highly-portable, can attach to just about anything, and shoots video in HD. But, because it's made by Garmin, the Virb brings something extra to the table. Full GPS connectivity, an altimeter, and an accelerometer mean it can do things like record your location, measure your speed, and determine your altitude (letting it intelligently shut off at the bottom of a ski run and turn back on when you reach the top). It also easily connects to smartphones, tablets, and other Garmin devices, while a wide-angle lens with distortion correction lets you capture huge images without a fisheye effect — and pressing play is as easy as sliding a switch.

  • Lomography Petzval Lens

    In the 19th century, the majority of photos were shot with an extremely popular lens called the Petzval. Photos using this lens were known for their crispness, strong color saturation, terrific swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes, and narrow depth of field. Those same qualities are front and center for a new generation of photogs now, thanks to the Lomography Petzval Lens ($500). The reimagined gem will work with Canon EF and Nikon F mount cameras and might just be your new favorite portrait lens.

  • Fujifilm X-M1 Camera

    Most situations that call for a full-featured camera are also the situations where it's too inconvenient to bring along a bulky DSLR — hiking, concerts, parties, weekend trips. The Fujifilm X-M1 Camera ($800) packs all the features you'd look for in a camera into a size that can go anywhere. It features a 16 megapixel CMOS sensor, a three-inch tilting LCD screen, and supports most Fujifilm lenses. Wireless image transfer lets you to download up to 30 images at a time to your iOS or Android device. At less than one pound, and under five inches by three inches by two inches, it's half the size of a typical DSLR.
