Sony Cyber-shot HX50 Camera

Used to be if you wanted a large range of zoom, you either had to buy a DSLR with a mammoth lens or go to one of the nearly DSLR-sized point-and-shoot super zooms. Boy have times changed. The Sony Cyber-shot HX50 Camera ($450) packs an impressive 30x optical zoom into a body that's just 4.4" x 2.6" x 1.2" and weighs under 10 oz, making it the smallest and lightest 30x zoom on the market. Other features include enhanced Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, a 20.4 megapixel sensor, a Bionz image processor, built-in Wi-Fi, dedicated exposure compensation and P/A/S/M mode dials, and the ability to capture Full HD movies at 60p. Arriving in stores next month.

  • Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera

    The Blackmagic Cinema Camera was a near-instant hit with budding movie-makers — but its size meant that it wasn't exactly a grab-n-go solution. The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera ($1,000) is. This pocket-friendly video recorder features a Super 16mm-sized, 1080p-capable sensor with an impressive 13 stops of dynamic range, an SD slot for expandable storage, and compatibility with Micro Four Thirds lenses. The big deal, however, is the ability to record in Apple ProRes or lossless CinemaDNG RAW formats, capturing far more detail than you'd get from your standard video-capable pocket cam. Coming to a shoot near you in July.

  • 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.
