Panasonic has announced the HC-X1000, the first camcorder capable of recording 4K ultra HD video at 60 frames per second onto an SD card. Intended as a bridging camera for 1080p shooters looking to take the step into 4K production, the X1000 brings a host of pro features to the table, including twin XLR audio inputs, built in ND filters, a 20x zoom, high speed autofocus Leica lens and a pop-out protected touch screen. With dual SD card slots, it also introduces a new "background recording" mode that constantly lays down footage on the secondary card so you never miss anything. Read More

The Olympus PEN E-PL7 is the latest camera to target the selfie-shooting crowd, though this time (thankfully) not by mimicking a perfume bottle like the Sony KW1. Instead the stylish mirrorless camera simply boasts features to make shooting and sharing selfies easier. As such, it includes a dedicated Selfie Mode, a 180-degree downward flip LCD, and built-in Wi-Fi. Read More
For all the functionality baked into today's cameras, they general limit the user to being behind the lens. Casio has announced a new modular camera that avoids this limitation. The Exilim EX-FR10 is designed so that the controller and lens units can be separated, allowing for more versatile shots. Read More
The Pentax K-S1 does not look like your typical DSLR. Not just because the 20 megapixel camera is available in the sort of variety of colors we've come to expect from Pentax. But because it also features an intriguing illumination interface with LEDs built into the camera body to indicate its current status of operation, count down for a self-timer or show the number of faces identified in a shot.
