Ricoh Theta Camera

While photos are still a great way of capturing moments you want to remember, they still leave something to be desired — everything outside of the frame is left completely to the viewer's imagination. With the Ricoh Theta Camera ($400) you can photograph not just what's directly in front of you, but a complete image of your surroundings, creating a spherical photo. The camera is small and portable, fitting comfortably in the palm of your hand or stashing away in your pocket. It pairs with your iOS device using the included app over a WiFi connection (Android support is on its way), so you can view, edit, and share your spherical snaps.

  • theQ Camera

    Instantly share your photos across social networks — or if you never learned to share, just store them in the cloud — with theQ Camera ($200). Thanks to 3G connectivity (and internal two-gig storage for when you're off the grid) you upload each of your shots to a web-based service called theQ Lab, where you can store, edit, and post photos from any device. Alternatively, with two pushes of the upload button, you can directly share a picture to any networks you've already configured. This small, five megapixel camera is also waterproof, features a built-in diffused LED flash, manual focus wheel, and a fixed lens with an f2.4 aperture.

  • 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.
