Fujifilm’s covetable line of retro-looking cameras is getting a slim, compact sibling. The X70 looks like just the camera a lot of people have been waiting for.
My wife loves technology. Hell, she spotted the job posting that landed me my first tech writing gig. She also loves sharing snapshots with friends. So when I told her that the Sony RX100 III could sling amazing selfies to Instagram with a tap of her phone, she was understandably stoked. When we packed our bags…
From about 2009-2012, Canon's S-series point-and-shoots were the best tiny little cameras you could buy. Then, Sony's RX100 line conquered it with similar functionality, but a much larger 1-inch image sensor that blew Canon's dinky 1/1.7-inch chips away. With the PowerShot G7 X, Canon strikes back.
Summer's in full swing, and, if we're being really honest with ourselves, everyone's probably praying to the air conditioning gods more than any other tech deity at this point. But man cannot live on air conditioning alone. Plus, June saw some pretty awesome gadgets come our way. Here are the cream of this very, very…
Really exciting point-and-shoot cameras only come around every so often, and last year's Sony RX100 was one of them. It blew its pocket compact competitors away. It also cost $650, which is pricey for an enthusiast camera. The new scaled down Sony HX50V mimics the RX100's covetable aesthetics, and packs some…
The new Canon Powershot N includes a lot of the features that Canon (and other companies) been adding to tiny point-and-shoots over the years, like Wi-Fi connectivity and touchscreen controls. What makes it new and refreshing—at least aesthetically—is the new design that's more square. It's noticeably different, but…
Anyone in the market for a top point-and-shoot camera is probably deciding between Canon's S100 and Sony's RX100. But Panasonic is back in the game with the Lumix LX7, a sequel to one of the top shooters of 2010, the wildly popular LX5. Does Panasonic's latest have what it takes to beat these pocket titans?
Canon's S95 was our favorite pocket camera. Um, it's probably not anymore. Meet the S100. What's new? Oh, Canon's first Digic V processor. A wider 24mm zoom lens. A 12-megapixel CMOS sensor (up from a 10MP CCD). 1080p video. And GPS built-in.
Point and shoots are generally seen as the wimpy hacks of the camera world, when compared to modern DSLRs and fancy new micro four thirds cameras. But their specs—like the 18x optical zoom on the Pentax Optio RZ18—are getting pretty impressive. It's like when Carrot Top grew mega-muscles and could all-of-a-sudden kick…
So Nikon announced about a million new cameras today, including its first go-anywhere, do-whatever-the-hell-you-want-to-it point and shoot. It's like when Gizmo eats after midnight, except with Nikon cameras instead gremlins. Here's a quick rundown on each of them.
Over at Instructables, there's a sweet little DIY project that can turn any 'ol point and shoot into a night vision camera. The secret is adding more infrared. Which isn't much of a secret, I guess.
There's a lot to like about the new Pentax Q digital camera. It has a slick retro look, five interchangeable lenses and many features of a dSLR packed into a body that's the size of a point and shoot.
It's sad to say, but when it comes to quickly sharing photos, point-and-shoots really can't compete with the phones in our pockets. This camera concept has a unique solution: it saves photos to three USB memory sticks for easy distribution.
Panasonic's Lumix FX75 strives to be a good looking camera with good looking video to match; the sleek FX75 has a touchscreen, a 24mm super wide angle lens with 5x optical zoom and shoots HD video in AVCHD Lite.
Is Samsung's flagship point-and shoot, the new TL500, truly worthy of the Bestmodo moniker we slapped on its butt yesterday afternoon? Well, let's put it this way: Maybe the Canon S90 does have something to worry about after all.
Meet the Casio Exilim EX-S7 and EX-Z35, a pair of low-price point-and-shoots debuting at PMA 2010 this weekend. They aren't going to blow the doors off anything, but that's the point. These are entry-level shooters with a pleasantly entry-level price.
There's a camera show going down in Anaheim right now, and with it has come a whole mess of budget cameras. GE put a few more on the growing pile today, including additions to its entry-level Power Series point-and-shoots.
Samsung's new TL500 is capable of shooting RAW with a crazy fast F1.8 lens and lets you view it all on a twisting AMOLED screen. It's possibly Samsung's best point-and-shoot ever, and it could be a Canon S90 killer.
