The Supraflux Stabilizer uses a electronic pan axis lock to make shooting direction change...

We've seen plenty of video camera stabilizers, from ones aimed at steadying your wobbly smartphone footage to those which hold DSLRs. But while stabilizing rigs can be great at smoothing out your shakes, they're typically difficult to operate if you also want to change direction and pan while shooting. The Supraflux Video Camera Stabilizer aims to solve this problem by adding an electronic pan axis lock.  Read More

The miniaturized Minox DCC 14.0 can fit in the palm of your hand

Minox has revealed the latest version of its miniaturized digital classic camera, the Minox DCC 14.0. The tiny camera – which is made to a scale of 1:3 and can fit in the palm of your hand – features a 14-megapixel sensor, a fixed lens and an optical viewfinder. But users shouldn't expect image quality to rival higher-end (and considerably larger) retro-shooters like the Fujifilm X100S.  Read More

The tough Fujifilm FinePix XP200 also boasts Wi-Fi capabilities

Fujifilm has announced two new Wi-Fi enabled cameras which will be added to its line-up: the FinePix XP200 and the S8400W. The XP200 is a new hard-as-nails all-weather offering which is waterproof to 15 m (50 ft) as well as being shockproof, dust-proof and freeze-proof, while the S8400W is a bridge camera which boasts an impressive 44x optical zoom.  Read More

The Canon EOS 100D (Rebel SL1) is the world's smallest APS-C DSLR

Canon has revealed two new DSLRs – the EOS 100D and the EOS 700D (or Rebel SL1 and Rebel T5i depending on where you are in the world). Billed as the world’s smallest and lightest APS-C DSLR camera, the 100D still manages to pack in an 18 megapixel APS-C (22.3 x 14.9 mm) sensor and a touchscreen on the rear. The 700D is a more advanced, and traditionally-sized, entry-level model which can shoot at 5 fps, and has a wide 9-point all cross type AF system and touchscreen LCD.  Read More

How do different sensor sizes compare with each other?

The megapixel myth has treated camera manufacturers well over the years, those ever increasing, and often meaningless, numbers have sold millions of cameras. But consumers are getting wise to it. We've all seen dodgy images from high megapixel cameras and know that after a point, megapixels don't matter for most people – a 16 MP compact isn't ever going to be as good as a 12 MP Full Frame DSLR. What does matter is sensor size!  Read More

The 'Big O' adds a large LCD viewfinder window to the Outex weather and waterproof housing...

While DSLRs give photographers great creative freedom and image quality, the cameras themselves don't cope too well with being exposed to excessive amounts of sand, mud, water or snow – which can be a pain if you get your kicks from shooting things like extreme sports. Outex is a weather and modular waterproof housing system for DSLRs that works much like a drysuit for your camera, and can protect your gear underwater to a depth of 10 meters (33 feet). The new "Big O" adds a big Outex LCD viewfinder window to the system.  Read More

Tiggly Shapes is expected to start shipping in May

Young children love playing with shapes, whether using them to complete a puzzle, building with them, or spotting them in the real world. But, while previous generations made do with wooden shapes and puzzles, toddlers nowadays have an iPad alternative. Tiggly Shapes is a set of four shape toys which interact with the iPad screen through a series of custom apps.  Read More

The Nikon COOLPIX A features a large DX-format 16.2-megapixel CMOS sensor

After the success of the Fujifilm X100, the Sony RX100 and the Canon G1 X, Nikon has finally embraced the idea of putting a large sensor in a compact-sized camera. The result is the Nikon COOLPIX A – which packs a 16.2-megapixel DX-format sensor and fixed 18.5mm lens into a surprisingly small body. Gizmag got to spent some hands-on time with the newly-announced camera ahead of its release.  Read More

The Satechi Bluetooth Smart Trigger brings wireless DSLR control to smartphones

Wirelessly triggering a camera was once the reserve of professional photographers, but it's now something more of us want to do, ideally via our smartphone. However, while more compact and mirrorless cameras now have wireless capabilities, DSLRs have mostly been left out of the smartphone-shooting fun. The Bluetooth Smart Trigger from Satechi is a wireless remote which aims to address this by bringing smartphone control to many DSLRs.  Read More

We review the Android-powered Samsung Galaxy Camera, which features 3G/4G and WiFi connect...

The Samsung Galaxy Camera is an intriguing proposition, in that it offers all the capabilities of a high-end smartphone (except the key one of being able to make calls … more on that later) with a capable point-and-shoot camera. It's a new genre of product, a point-and-share smart-camera if you will. But just how smart is it? I spent a bit of quality time with one to find out.  Read More
