and considerably bigger than previous megapixel monsters like the Nikon D810
or Sony A7R

have over its D5300
predecessor? Gizmag takes a look at the key specifications and features of the two entry-level DSLRs to see how they compare, and which one would be right for you.
The idea of video eyeglasses and sunglasses always sounds great at first – forget strapping a boxy camera to your head and get footage straight from your glasses. What's not so great is the limited selection and acquired taste nature of the options currently available. Not everyone is into the "Red Bull-chuggin' extreme" styling of the Pivotheads
or the "forgot my sunglasses so bought these at the pharmacy" look of Eyez glasses
. The tiny Geco Mark II action cam solves the problem by letting you build your own using the glasses of your choice.
Like the cameras on several other drones, the 4K/30fps unit on DJI's new Inspire 1

Other selfie-friendly features include Eye Detection AF, and a Portrait Enhancer mode which makes a subject's skin look brighter and smoother.
