Ricoh GR

Just in case you missed it, it looks like DSLR-sized sensors in compact bodies is this year's photography trend — and the Ricoh GR ($800) is the latest to join the crowd. Weighing in at just 8.6 oz., the new GR features an APS-C-sized, 16 megapixel CMOS sensor, a fixed 28mm f/2.8 lens, the new GR Engine V imaging processor, ISO sensitivity up to 25600, improved autofocus, and the obligatory 1080p video recording. It's not as super-retro as some of its competition, but its plain looks might help ward off unwanted attention — which might be more important, anyway.

  • Sun & Cloud Camera

    Never worry about battery life again with the Sun & Cloud Camera ($200). This small, squarish camera features a solar panel on the top to charge the battery in sunlight, a hand crank on the side to charge manually, and a USB port for more traditional energy restoration. On the technical side, it sports a paltry 3-megapixel CMOS sensor that's made interesting by the inclusion of 15 built-in filters, three shooting models, high-power LED lights for nighttime shooting, and a built-in mic for video recording. In other words, it's for artsy shots, not for trying to shoot your next cover photo.
