If you haven't yet picked up a Flip pocket camcorder, check out the new Kodak Zi6 ($180). This pocket-bound beauty records 60fps 720p HD video onto a SDHC card, runs on rechargeable Ni-MH AA batteries but can also run off standard AA's in a pinch, and plays back video on its built-in 2.4-inch LCD. This might just be the first Kodak product we purchase in the new millennium.
Falling between the Nikon D3 and D300, the just-announced D700 ($3,000) is the company's newest pro-level digital SLR camera. The D700 features a 12.1-effective megapixel Nikon FX-format sensor and a native ISO range of 200 to 6400. The camera also features a 3-inch super-density 920,000-dot VGA color screen, Nikon's EXPEED Image Processing System, Nikon’s 51-point auto focus system, two Live View shooting modes, a Scene Recognition System, and a new active dust reduction system.
If you've tired of the endless stream of similar-looking, mediocre-performing pocketable digicams, check out the Rolleiflex MiniDigi AF 5.0 ($330). This digitized throwback is a precisely shrunken version of the classic Rolleiflex twin reflex camera in red or black, complete with hand crank, but with modern tech like an auto focus lens, a 3 megapixel CMOS sensor, and a pop-up 1.1-inch TFT viewfinder with hood. At only three inches tall, it too is pocketable, but rest assured, no one's going to mistake this for yet another digital Elph.
