Its physical shutter, a key of any high-end DSLR, is an afterthought. Instead of being a limitation, however, it allows the Sony A9 Camera to do things the D5s and 1Ds of the world can't. At its core is the world's first stacked full-frame CMOS sensor, which puts memory onboard the sensor to enable processing that's up to 20x faster than previous Sony full-frames. Paired with a new Bionz X processing engine, it can make up to 60 auto focus and exposure calculations per second and shoot 20 stills per second. The hybrid AF system has 693 phase detection points and thanks to the fully electronic shutter, you can follow the action without any blackout through the Quad-VGA OLED EVF. Other notable features include a 5-axis image stabilization system, a maximum shutter speed of 1/32,000 sec., 24.2-megapixel resolution, and 4K video capture.
Fuji's Instax instant cameras are the most popular on the market. The Fujifilm Instax Square SQ10 Camera builds on this legacy with an all-new system that combines the convenience of digital with the immediate gratification of instant film. A digital image sensor lets the camera perform better in low-light conditions while imbuing it with new features like automatic exposure control, facial recognition, and auto-focus. It also allows you to apply effects and even edit before printing on the brand-new Instax Square film, resulting in an image that's roughly 2.5" by 2.5". There's also a 3-inch monitor for framing your shots and a microSD slot for saving the 1920x1920 digital snaps.
Smartphones are amazing machines. They're also horribly distracting. Forest is a new app that, somewhat contradictorily, helps you stay focused on the world around you. When you need to get your attention off your phone and onto your surroundings, open the app and plant a tree. The tree will grow over a set period, and if you try to leave the app while it's growing, the tree dies. Over time, you're able to cultivate an entire forest, and the app also gives you detailed stats, giving you greater insight into just how much time you are (or aren't) spending on your pocketable slab of glass and metal.
