Huawei teamed up with Leica to develop the first to market dual-lens smartphone camera. This new tech uses both an RGB sensor and a monochrome sensor to capture greater detail, improved color and better low-light imagery compared to other cameras.
THE BEST Cameras
Sony ups its compact superzoom game with the new RX10 III. It has the same 1″ 20MP sensor as the Mk. II, but its lens now maxes out at an insane 600mm. It also has 4K video, Wi-Fi and NFC, optical image stabilization and up to 960fps slow mo. Still no touchscreen though.
Matt’s Macintosh dusted off a 20-year-old Apple QuickTake 200 digital camera to see if they could extract its images and upload them to Instagram. It wasn’t exactly straightforward, but in the end, they managed to figure out a way to do it. Check out the grainy result here.
This extravagant APS-C digital camera packs Leica quality in a rugged design that’s waterproof, dustproof and shockproof. The 16.2MP camera’s fixed f/1.7 23mm lens is also sealed, so the camera can be used under 50ft of water for up to 60min. Sample photos here.
Nikon jumps head first into the crowded action camera market with the compact KeyMission 360. It packs two sensors, allowing it to capture 360º video and stills in 4k resolution. It’s also waterproof, and resistant to dust, shock, and cold, and has electronic vibration reduction.
Designed to simplify shooting time-lapse videos, the Enlaps Tikee sends images over Wi-Fi or 3G, combines still photos into videos, and recharges via solar power. It can shoot every 10 minutes for a week on battery, and uses dual Sony sensors to create a 220º field of view.
It’s comically large, and its film is pricey, but it gives you 3.5″x 4.5″ photos (2.5″x 4″ exposure area), a capable auto mode, an unlimited exposure mode and a lens cap that doubles as a remote control. It also has optional color gels, an ultra wide-angle lens and close-up lens.
