Many still turn to professional-grade cameras to meet their needs, DSLRs standing chief among them, but getting started is tricky -- there are numerous lenses and accessories available for digital SLR cameras, and pining down exactly what you need is hard. Nikon has taken a step, however, to simplify the process.

Flex Cam PIC: a bendy, flexible camera with personality

Flex Cam PIC: a bendy, flexible camera with personality

Sometimes it feels as if all cameras look alike, even if the makers go to an effort to stand out. Many of them are business-chic, and the most playful ones you’re likely to find are of the rugged outdoorsy sort with that typical “rugged” design scheme. It’s this common, nearly bland reality that makes the Flex Cam PIC camera stand out so drastically: it’s a long bendy camera with personality. Literally.

Details of Pentax K-3 II leak out ahead of April 23 debut

The first Pentax K-3 was made public in 2013, so it's not an understatement to say that a second generation is long overdue.

But if you've actually been holding out for this DSLR, it might be time to stop holding your breath just for a bit.

LG really loves teasing the public in bits and pieces about its upcoming G4 flagship bound for next week, but one thing it can't seem to get enough of is its camera.

StabCam differs from them, however, being designed specifically for the GoPro and any of the camera’s own mounts.
