Nikon 1 System Cameras

Been waiting on one of the "big two" camera manufacturers to enter the compact interchangeable lens market? Here you go. The new Nikon 1 System Cameras ($650-$900) mix ideas from Micro Four Thirds, DSLRs, and compact cameras together into an intriguing blend of technology and style. Both models — the J1 and V1 — sport 10.1 megapixel High-Speed AF CMOS sensors capable of ISO 3200 shooting, 1080 30p/60i video recording, and insane 1200fps slow-mo recording, 3-inch LCD monitors, 12-bit RAW capture, SDXC storage, and electronic shutter speeds of 1/16,000 of a second. The J1 also offers an advanced 73-point hybrid AF system for the world's fastest autofocus and the world's fastest continuous shooting speed at 60fps, while the V1 is the world's smallest and lightest camera in the world with interchangeable lens versatility and an electronic viewfinder, and offers pro-oriented features like a mechanical shutter and compatibility with external flashes. Don't worry about choosing right now — they won't be available until October anyway.

  • Fujifilm FinePix X10 Camera

    Like its big brother the X100, the Fujifilm FinePix X10 Camera ($TBA) looks more than a little retro — and that's a good thing. Powered by a large 12-megapixel, 2/3-inch EXR CMOS sensor paired to a f2.0, 4x manual optical zoom lens, the X10 takes serious photographs and 1080p video that you can view on the 2.8-inch monitor — and thanks to the optical viewfinder and physical controls for shooting mode, autofocus mode, and exposure compensation, it handles like a camera made for taking serious photographs as well.

  • Cineskates

    If Kickstarter has taught us anything, it's that good ideas can come from anywhere — and Cineskates ($150 and up) are a perfect example. This ingenious set of skateboard-style wheels are made to attach to Joby's ultra-versatile GorillaPod Focus tripod and ballhead, turning your DSLR or — gasp! — digital camcorder into a pro-style rig, allowing for silver screen-worthy movement.
