Sony NEX-C3 Camera

With a design that crams a DSLR-sized sensor into a point-and-shoot sized body, the Sony NEX-C3 Camera ($600-$650) is the latest in Sony's series of hybrid shooters. Building upon the company's well-received NEX-3, the C3 features a solid metal top case, a streamlined grip, a 16.2 megapixel Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor, 720p video recording, a tilting, three-inch LCD, 3D Sweep Panorama and Auto HDR modes, and a weight of just eight ounces, or less than your typical prime lens for your comparatively huge DLSR.

  • Expedition Tripod

    Did you know that wood naturally absorbs more vibration than metal? That makes it a prime material for tripod construction, as seen in the Expedition Tripod ($290). Made in Germany from varnished ash wood, it features an interlocking, extending design, a standard, sturdy mount, spiked retractable feet for secure footing in any terrain, and a unique look that makes it a worthy conversation piece when it's not in use.

  • V.I.O. POV.HD Camera

    Whether you simply want to record your sporting exploits or you're shooting an FPS film noir, the V.I.O. POV.HD Camera ($600) should be at the top of your gear list. Offering a super-wide field of view when shooting in 1080p HD — it's slightly less when shooting in the slow-mo 60fps 720p mode — the POV.HD also features a shock-, dust-, and water-proof housing, a wireless remote, in-field editing and exposure control, SDHC storage, and the ability to mount to goggles, a helmet, or anywhere else that seems appropriate.
