The Digital Bolex D16 Cinema Camera, sporting its snazzy retro pistol grip

There was a time, not all that long ago, when most independent film-makers shot their projects on relatively-inexpensive 16mm film – it wasn't as pricey as 35mm, but was definitely a step up from Super 8. The cameras shooting that film were quite often made by the venerable Swiss manufacturer, Bolex. Today, in the age of digital video, film-makers wanting to take a step up from consumer-grade camcorders are looking at some pretty expensive gear. LA-based entrepreneurs Joe Rubinstein and Elle Schneider are trying to change that, with the introduction of their Digital Bolex D16 Cinema Camera.  Read More

The device is designed to sit in a camera’s hotshoe mount

We've seen a steady flow of devices emerge and attempt to bridge the gap between the amateur photographers and those creating time-lapse masterpieces. The Astro camera mount, for example, reduced the required technology to a three-ringed device that fits in your pocket, while the Genie and Camalapse went one step further to incorporate panning and tracking shots for those wanting a little creative freedom. These factors considered, the Michron is by no means revolutionary, but with no buttons, screens or dials, it may be the most simplified and user-friendly installment yet.  Read More

Phlite lamps convert your photography gear into interior lights

Whether it's their vintage rangefinder or a carbon fiber tripod, some photographers like looking at camera equipment almost as much as the photographs they've taken. The Phlite lamp is a product which might mean us camera-geeks don't have to pack our kit away at the end of a shoot, because it turns photography gear into stylish interior lighting.  Read More

Gizmag compares some of the best mid-range mirrorless cameras on the market in 2013

We recently took a look at some of the best mirrorless cameras on the market, but with body-only prices starting at US$1,000, they're not within everyone's budget.

In this guide Gizmag compares the best mid-range mirrorless cameras on the market in 2013.  Read More

Gizmag compares eight of today's best-known actioncams

There was a time when there were only a few actioncams on the market, made by companies like VIO and Oregon Scientific. In the past several years, however, the product category has exploded. GoPro may have led the charge, but it's by no means the only player on the field. In order to help buyers make a little more sense of all the choices, here's a side-by-side comparison of eight of today's more prominent actioncams.  Read More

The Canon EOS M2 mirrorless interchangeable lens camera

Canon finally entered the mirrorless interchangeable lens camera market in the middle of last year with the EOS M, which saw the company squeeze some DSLR technology and an APS-C size sensor into a compact camera-sized body. A smaller and lighter successor has now been revealed, and it's been named, appropriately enough, the M2. The pixel count and image processing engine remain the same, but the new model promises more than twice the autofocus speed of its predecessor, and now packs built-in Wi-Fi.  Read More

MIT researchers have developed a new time-of-flight (TOF) 3D "nano-camera" with the ability to work with translucent objects, motion, fog, rain, and other factors in the environment that totally confuse previous TOF cameras, such as Microsoft's second-gen Kinect. The MIT Media Lab team has added these new capabilities by introducing additional information into the illuminating light beam. The resulting camera costs less than US$500 in parts.  Read More

Gizmag reviews the Theta panoramic camera from Ricoh

Starting out as a rather chunky hammerhead concept shown at CES 2013, the Theta panoramic camera has since been slimmed down, streamlined and released. Stunning 360 degree views can be instantly captured at the push of a button, the device can be remotely operated via smartphone, and images uploaded to an online photo album and shared on social media. Gizmag has spent the last few weeks generating lots of immersive bubble panoramas with the Theta, and the novelty has yet to wear off. But is the camera worth its rather high price tag?  Read More
