It's not the first camera to use your iPhone as a viewfinder, nor the first camera with a one-inch sensor, or even the first to combine those two things. But the DxO One Camera is the first to put them in a pocketable package. Using the same 20.2 megapixel sensor found in Sony's RX100 III, it allows for much more detailed captures than the built-in camera. Its six-element lens has a maximum aperture of f/1.8 and an adjustable iris for more creative control, the pivot mount lets you take shots at any angle, the microSD slot ensures you won't burn through your phone's storage, the 1/8000 shutter lets you stop motion, and once you've captured the moment, DxO's advanced software — they test camera sensors, after all — helps make your photos look their best.
Nest can control your thermostat. Nest can monitor for smoke and carbon monoxide. And now, with the Nest Cam, they can watch over your home, too. This direct descendant of the Dropcam Pro bests its predecessor with 1080p video and a sleeker stand, while maintaining a 130-degree field of view, infrared night vision, and an online service that lets you view your cams from anywhere in the world. You can set it to send you notifications when it senses movement or loud noises, and an optional add-on will store up to 30 days of video online, so you don't miss an important moment.
In most cameras, a new sensor means more megapixels, and maybe some extra low-light prowess. If you're lucky. The new sensor in the Sony RX100 IV Camera offers far more than that. The latest update to the powerful point-and-shoot centers around a stacked Exmor RS CMOS sensor, with both advanced signal processing and an attached DRAM chip. These latter two features enable new capabilities like slow-motion video capture at up to 960 fps, an Anti-Distortion Shutter with a maximum speed of 1/32,000 of a second, 4K recording, and burst shooting of up to 16 fps at 20.1 megapixels, all in the same pocketable body and with the same sharp Zeiss lens.
Ask any photographer, and they'll tell you that there's something liberating about working with a prime lens, something refreshing about having to move around to find the right shot. The Leica Q Camera celebrates this by fixing its 28mm, optically-stabilized f/1.7 lens to its aluminum and magnesium alloy frame. The bright, tack-sharp lens is paired with a 24 megapixel sensor offering excellent image quality right up to ISO 50,000, lightning-quick AF, a 3.68 megapixel electronic viewfinder, and a new Maestro II processor for burst shooting up to 10 fps.
