Camera Stories July 20

Modern smartphones are awesome for taking photos and videos, but I still prefer to use a standalone camera when I’m working.

I’ve had all sorts of cameras in past, most of them of the DLSR or mirrorless variety. The common thread with all of my past standalone cameras was that they were always much larger than the average smartphone.

After owning a phone with a camera for the last 10 years, I desired a standalone camera that featured similar portability. There are lots of pocketable point-and-shoots available on the market, but none of them check off as many bullet-points and feature the visual fidelity of Sony’s RX100 IV.

Sony’s venerable RX100 is legendary for the amount of features that it manages to jam inside of such a small form factor, and the latest model doesn’t disappoint. expand full story

Headlined by Leica’s retro-styled cameras, Europe has been cranking out beautiful equipment over the last few years. The latest of which comes from Sweden’s own Hasselblad. Known for its high-end offerings, the newest creation out of Gothenburg has a sleek design alongside a gorgeous touchscreen display. The X1D is a medium format mirrorless camera that is made by hand with the promise of a “handling experience unlike any other”…and a $9,000 price tag.

Action cameras are amongst the hottest holiday gifts this year as GoPro prices have steadily fallen and the market has been flooded with competitors. It’s no surprise that a product category once dominated by one brand is seeing its prices get undercut every day as more third-party brands get involved. The popularity and rise of crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter are also playing a large role in this shift.

A new action camera has recently launched with an eye on finding a spot amongst a sea of competitors. The YoCam uses a compact design and a laundry list of features to standout amongst the crowd. Its campaign page proudly proclaims that this product integrates the “functions of GoPro, DropCam, Lifelogging Camera, Selfie Camera, Dash Cam and more.” That’s high praise for a product that just passed its initial funding goal.

Today, a new camera from the high-flying optics company has been announced. The Osmo is a camera mounted on a motorized rig with a stabilizing arm to capture smooth video and photos. It’s basically a very fancy selfie-stick. An expensive one at that…
