Sony Cyber-Shot QX Lens Cameras

Transform your smartphone into a fully-functioning camera with these Sony Cyber-Shot QX Lens Cameras ($250-$500). Each of these lenses attaches to your smartphone with an included mechanical bracket, and connects using WiFi or NFC, letting you take the kind of pictures reserved, until now, for actual cameras. They can also function as stand-alone cameras, with a slot for a memory card and a shutter button. They currently offer two models, one with a large 20 megapixel sensor and 3.6x zoom, and another with an 18 megapixel sensor and 10x zoom.

  • 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.

  • Canon VIXIA Mini Camcorder

    Just because you like to travel light doesn't mean you have to keep shooting grainy, low resolution videos on your smartphone — with the Canon VIXIA Mini Camcorder ($300) you can shoot HD video on the go and still share on all your social networks. Designed to slip conveniently into a pocket, or a small pouch in your bag, you'll barely notice its less than a half a pound weight. The flip-up 2.7-inch LCD screen lets you record from a range of angles, and even view yourself while you record. Wi-Fi connectivity lets you upload video directly to the web, and an available iOS app lets you share content to your phone, or control the camera remotely.
