It also boasts a redesigned touchscreen interface, Leica's fastest autofocus, and built-in Wi-Fi.  Read More

The Lytro Illum is a professional-grade 40-megaray light field camera

When Lytro announced plans for consumer-oriented light field cameras, we were instantly smitten by the idea of being able to re-focus images after taking them. However, the quirky kaleidoscope-like form factor and low resolution of its first camera meant it was only ever going to be a hit with the most ardent early-adopter. Now the firm is back with a second-generation light field camera, the Illum, and things have got a lot more serious.  Read More

With the new Google Camera app, you can choose where your photo is focused after you shoot, and then dial in whatever amount of lens blur you like to separate the subject from the background.

A few years later, the company included an "endless memory" feature that checked for successful upload and deleted the image on the card to free up space. Last year, saw the launch of Eye-Fi Mobi cards which made it easier to throw images over to mobile devices, and now a private online storage service has been announced, offering unlimited photo uploads and allowing users to instantly share captured moments with friends and family over multiple devices.  Read More

The Pentax 645Z is the latest medium-format camera to use a CMOS sensor

Gizmag goes hands-on with the soon-to-be-released Olympus Stylus SH-1

And while we haven't quite had the chance to put it through its paces on a nice holiday in Venice, we did get the opportunity to spend a bit of time with a pre-production model at the Gadget Show Live in Birmingham, UK.  Read More
