If you've got the urge to take a selfie, then there's a number of ways you can go about it. While you could always just yank out your smartphone, options like the selfie stick and snap-happy drones promise to squeeze a little more in shot. Looking to fill another slot in the selfie aficionado's toolkit is the team behind Podo, a small wireless camera that can be slapped on any surface and controlled remotely with your smartphone.

We've previously marveled at the built-in zoom ability of cameras like the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ70, Canon SX520 HS, and Pentax XG-1. But compared to the new Nikon Coolpix P900, the lenses on those cameras look positively puny. That's because the new DSLR-styled bridge camera boasts an almost ridiculous 24-2000-mm equivalent zoom lens. Read More
Following hot on the heels of the D5500, Nikon has revealed yet another DSLR upgrade, this time in the form of a higher-end APS-C DSLR. The D7200 is an evolutionary rather than revolutionary upgrade to the D7100, but the 24-megapixel shooter still boasts a number of key improvements such as improved low-light performance, a bigger buffer and the addition of built-in Wi-Fi.

US start-up Konost has announced plans to launch a full frame digital rangefinder which it thinks could rival the likes of Leica. The Konost FF will be an M-mount camera which achieves digital rangefinder focusing by using a secondary image sensor rather than a traditional rangefinder mechanism. Other features of the aluminum-bodied camera include a 20-megapixel CMOS sensor and a 4-inch LCD rear monitor. Read More
Ultra-thin flat lenses suitable for photography are one step closer after a team of researchers at Harvard University made a major leap forward with its prototype wafer-thin flat lens. The new lens builds on the original prototype, which we first heard about in 2012, by using an achromatic metasurface to focus different wavelengths of light at the same point. Read More
Nikon has updated its Coolpix line-up for 2015 with a selection of new models ranging from big zoom DSLR-like bridge cameras, to budget compacts and tough cameras. The highlight of the nine-camera assault is undoubtedly the Coolpix P610, which features a giant 24-1440-mm equivalent optical zoom along with built-in Wi-Fi, NFC and GPS capabilities. Read More
Ricoh has revealed the Pentax K-S2, a small weather-resistant DSLR which features a number of firsts for the K-series. The new 20-megapixel camera – said to be the world’s smallest dust-proof, weather-resistant DSLR – boasts built-in Wi-Fi, NFC and has a vari-angle LCD monitor. Also announced by Ricoh was the new rugged WG-5 GPS-packing camera. Read More
Nikon has revealed the D810A, an astrophotography-focused version of its D810 full frame DSLR. Though the new camera will retain many of the specifications of the 36.3-megapixel camera it's based on, it will enable DSLR stargazers to capture the cosmos in highly detailed and vibrant images thanks to a number of astro-centric features including a modified infrared (IR) cut filter.

Canon has announced it will be updating its entry-level interchangeable lens offerings with a pair of new DSLRs and (in some territories) a new mirrorless camera. The EOS 750D and 760D (or Rebel T6i and T6s if you're in the US) are a pair of Wi-Fi enabled 24-megapixel DSLRs, while the EOS M3, with its hybrid autofocus system, looks to be Canon's best attempt yet at getting into the mirrorless market.

The rumors were true. Canon is going big in terms of resolution with its latest full frame DSLRs. The newly-announced Canon EOS 5DS and 5DS R each boast 50.6-megapixel sensors, that's more than double the 5D Mark III and considerably bigger than previous megapixel monsters like the Nikon D810 or Sony A7R. This gives the new megapixel-heavy duo the highest resolution of any current 35-mm-format DSLR. Read More
