Classic looks meet the convenience of instant in the Lomo'Instant Montenegro Camera. Inspired by the picturesque Balkan country, it's clad in genuine black leather complemented by a silver finish, lending it a formality most instants lack. Like its stablemates, it uses readily-available Fujifilm Instax Mini film, and offers rock-solid reliability. It ships with three add-on lenses — fisheye, portrait, and close-up — to extend the built-in, 27mm wide-angle lens' capabilities, as well as several color gels and a "splitzer for even greater creative freedom.
Medium format quality meets 35mm-like versatility in the Leica S Type 007 Camera. Its 30x45mm Leica Max CMOS sensor is 50 percent larger than a typical full-frame 35mm-format sensor, delivering exceptionally detailed, low-noise 37.5 megapixel images, while still offering burst shooting of up to 3.5 frames per second and 4K video recording in Super 35 format. Other improvements over its predecessor include faster, more reliable autofocus, integrated GPS and Wi-Fi, a new transflective display on the top plate, and USB 3.0 for faster image transfers.
It doesn't shoot in 4K or super slow-mo, but unlike the footage you capture with most wearable cams, the video you shoot with the Graava Action Camera won't end up collecting dust on an external drive. That's because it uses a combination of sensors and intelligent software to detect the most exciting portions of your video, then automatically edits it down into something that's instantly shareable. It can even edit video shot with more than one camera, so you can get different angles in the same clip — all you need to do is drop it on the wireless charger stand and let it go to work.
Some cameras aim to capture images that are as close as possible to what we see with our own eyes. The Fujifilm X-T1 IR Camera aims to capture images that show more than the naked eye. By doing away with the standard infrared filter, this specialized shooter can capture light at wavelengths of 380nm - 1,000nm, or portions of both the ultraviolet and infrared spectrum. For comparison, the human eye can only see between 390nm - 700nm. And while it's being billed as ideal for forensic specialists and medical researchers, it can also be used to take fine art photographs, as well as for astrophotography.
With a compact, modular body and insane low light capability, the Canon ME20F-SH Camera is likely to become your go-to rig for filming anything after dark. Thanks to a special 2.2MP full-frame sensor with 19 μm pixels and proprietary readout circuitry, it can shoot full-color 1080p video in lighting of less than 0.0005 lux, or at a sensitivity equivalent to over ISO 4,000,000 (no, that's not a typo). It's compatible with the same lenses you use on your Canon DSLR, and offers a host of pro-level inputs and outputs to support a variety of setups and shooting styles.
It looks like an orb from the future. And in some ways, it is. Built to capture virtual reality-ready video, the Nokia Ozo isn't actually round — it has a handle around back so you can hold it or set it on a tripod. But you wouldn't know it from the video it captures. Using eight synchronized global shutter image sensors and eight integrated microphones, it shoots stereoscopic 3D video, with software for real-time viewing and playback without the need to pre-assemble the image. It's your Oculus Rift's new best friend.
There are plenty of action cameras that shoot 4K video. There are Micro Four Thirds cameras that do the same. But only the E1 4K Video Camera blends the size and simplicity of an action cam with the ability to use nearly any Micro Four Thirds lens. It can capture cinematic 4096x2160 video at 24 fps or UHD TV-ready 3840x2160 at 30 fps, with 3D noise filters to reduce and/or remove noise, jitter, ghosting, and blurring. It has a robust die-cast magnesium housing that helps dissipate heat, and built-in wireless for controlling and live-streaming content from the camera right on your phone.
Image stabilization is a key feature for low-light shooters. Some cameras do it inside the lens, some even move their sensors around. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 Camera uses both simultaneously to provide wider correction angles than you can get with either alone. It also packs the highest-res sensor (20.3-megapixel) ever packed into a Micro Four Thirds camera and an updated image processor that lends support for 4K video recording and 8 fps boost shooting.
Smaller and lighter than any GoPro before it, the GoPro Hero4 Session Camera opens up new shooting possibilities thanks to its diminutive stature. With no rear LCD, it uses a simple one-button control scheme to start recording, and connects to the GoPro app for more robust control. It's also compatible with existing GoPro mounts, makes possible some new ones thanks to its smallness, and is waterproof down to 33 feet without needing separate housing, letting it capture better underwater audio than its stablemates while still grabbing 1080p60, 720p100, or 1440p30 video.
Your camera is expensive. The strap that came with it is not. Protect your investment with the Convoy Kevlar Camera Strap. The black leather strap is reinforced with the same stuff they use to make body armor, ensuring that the only way your Leica hits the floor is if you throw it down yourself.
Polaroid stopped making the legendary SX-70 in 1981. Yet here it is over 30 years later, gaining new features for your photographic enjoyment. The Polaroid SLR670m Camera is an SX-70 that's been completely restored by the caring hands at MiNT in Hong Kong, and equipped with what they call the Time Machine. The add-on gives you control over the shutter, so you can take photos at speeds up to 1/2000th of a second or as slow as you'd like, along with an improved auto mode, and an off mode that will help save your film. Film that you're going to want to stock up on at Impossible.
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.
Most cameras would be happy to debut with one "world's first" feature. The Sony A7R II Camera has two. At its heart is a massive 42.4 megapixel sensor, the world's first to offer backside illumination at a full-frame size. And thanks to the sensor — which also offers ISO up to 102,400 and an insane 399 phase detection AF points — it can capture 4K video using the full width of the sensor, a first for a 35mm-format interchangeable-lens camera. Other features include an upgraded viewfinder, 5-axis image stabilization for even sharper photos, and a rugged magnesium alloy body.
Let's be honest: odds are, you don't need this camera. But that doesn't mean you can't want it. Packed with an abundance of professional-grade features, the Phase One XF Camera is built to be the only camera you'll ever need. Its modular design can accommodate different viewfinders and digital backs, which currently include both a solid glass prism viewfinder and a waist-level finder, as well as backs ranging from 50 to 80 megapixels, all of which provide outstanding dynamic range, unrivaled color rendition, and more resolution than you'll ever need. It's compatible with a family of over 60 lenses, and its medium format delivers bokeh that even the best full-frame 35mm sensors can't match.
It's not going to shoot super slow-motion footage, nor is it going to future-proof your video by capturing 4K. But that doesn't mean the GoPro Hero+ LCD is a slouch. On the contrary: based on the entry-level Hero, this new action cam shoots 1080p60 video and 8MP photos (up from 1080p30 and 5MP on the original), and has a built-in touch display for framing, control, and in-camera editing. It also has built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for connecting to phones and tablets, and like its little brother, it's built into a waterproof housing that lets you shoot as far as 130 feet under the surface.
It looks old. The technology inside is anything but. The Fujifilm X-T10 Camera is the company's latest compact retro shooter, offering interchangeable lenses and a 16 megapixel version of the lauded X-trans sensor. It's OLED viewfinder has the world's lowest lag time, the new AF system has 49 focus areas, and the controls up top let you take as much or as little control as you like.
