Panasonic Lumix GX1

Don't let the name fool you — the Panasonic Lumix GX1 ($700) is very much a sequel to the GF1 that's currently doing duty around Uncrate HQ. It sports a black or silver body, a 16 megapixel Live MOS sensor, the Venus Engine image processor for full-size shooting at 4.2fps, impressive low-light chops with ISO to 12,800, "Light Speed" autofocus as quick as 0.09 seconds, 1080p video recording, and a full complement of controls that helped make its predecessor such a hit with advanced shooters.

  • Lytro Camera

    And you thought your DSLR was advanced. The Lytro Camera ($400-$500) is an all-new type of shooter called a Light Field Camera that captures the color, intensity and vector direction of the rays of light — 11 million of them, in the case of the Lytro — and then uses powerful software to substitute for the internal pieces of regular cameras and also add incredible new capabilities, like the ability to focus the photo after you've taken it. Yeah, that's what we said. [Scouted by Ryan & Alex]

  • Canon 1D X DSLR Camera

    Looking for the absolute best professional DSLR you can buy? As of March 2012, that will be the Canon 1D X DSLR Camera ($6,800). Built to replace not one but two EOS-1D models, the 1D X sports three DIGIC processors — including dual DIGIC 5+ processors to allow for up to 12fps RAW shooting and 1080p video capture, and a dedicated DIGIC 4 for metering and AF control — an all-new 61-point AF system, an 18 megapixel full frame CMOS sensor, a new 100,000-pixel RGB Metering Sensor, a super high speed, 14fps JPEG mode, and an all new shutter with carbon fiber blades rated for 400,000 cycles. Your move, Nikon.
