There are plenty of smartphones out there which have good, if not great cameras, but even among the best the specs of the Panasonic Lumix CM1 stand out. It features a large 1-inch type 20-megapixel sensor which dwarfs those of most of its rivals, and boasts RAW shooting for more flexible processing.

High-end smartphones sure can snap a pretty picture these days. This fact alone means it won't be easy for HTC to win over mobile photographers with its pocket-size RE camera.

We've spent the last month playing around with the RE, and though it won't be for everyone, its quirky design and well-rounded capabilities certainly offer a different kind of shooting experience.  Read More

Gizmag recently spent a bit of time with the kit ahead of its release.  Read More

The Geco Mark II weighs just 20 grams

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.  Read More
