The Hasselblad Lunar mirrorless camera (essentially a pimped-out Sony Nex-7) arrived back in June to a somewhat mixed reception, but that hasn't stopped the Swedish firm rolling out a second luxury version of a Sony camera. This time it's the compact Sony RX100 which is getting the extravagant makeover. The resulting Hasselblad Stellar camera comes complete with exotic wooden hand-grips and a much higher price-tag.  Read More

Panasonic's Lumix FZ-series of bridge cameras have offered photographers the versatility of vast focal ranges, without the need to change lenses, for several years now. But its new Lumix DMC-FZ70 (FZ72) takes things even further by packing in a monstrous 60x zoom. This gives it a 35-mm format focal length equivalent of an almost ridiculous 20-1,200-mm.  Read More

It's no secret the compact camera market is taking a beating. Yes, people are taking more photos than ever, but not on dedicated point-and-shoots. Increasingly they're reaching for their smartphone when a photographic opportunity arises. Nikon President, Makoto Kimura, told Bloomberg his company is well aware of this trend and wants to create new products aimed at this bigger market, hinting at the possibility of a smartphone by saying the company is considering a "non-camera consumer product."  Read More

The Canon EOS 70D features Wi-Fi capabilities and a new Dual Pixel CMOS AF system

DSLRs can shoot amazing quality video. But their autofocus is primarily designed for shooting stills and can result in stuttering movie footage, which is why most filmmakers don't use it. However, Canon thinks this could change with the launch of the EOS 70D. The new AF system in the Wi-Fi-toting 20.2-megapixel DSLR is said to offer much faster focusing during Live View, to the point that it can shoot almost camcorder-rivaling video.  Read More

The LeapPad Ultra follows on from the LeapPad 2, but at first glance it's obvious that this is more than a token update. Thanks to a seven-inch screen with a 1024 x 600 resolution, it instantly looks more like a standard tablet than the LeapPad 2 (with its five-inch 480 x 272 offering). The new light-touch screen has also been designed to work with fingers or a stylus, so little users can practice their writing skills.  Read More

Sony rocked the compact camera world last year when it launched the RX100, a pocketable zoom camera with a larger than usual sensor. Now it's revealed the Cyber-shot RX100 II.

Sony also showed off the RX1R, which will be sold alongside the RX1 and removes the optical low-pass filter for sharper pictures.  Read More
