JVC Micro Four Thirds camera brings its own support crew

When one hears of cameras, especially digital ones, we usually think of a single slab or contraption that we can take along with us for a ride. The new JVC GW-SP100E 4KCAM, however, is anything but portable. Or rather it is, at least in some ways. Instead of a single camera body, this is actually a full system, composed of a remote camera head, its own separate recording and playback unit, and a remote control to, well, control it all from a safe distance.

Sony a7II priced up for December 9th launch

Sony has confirmed pricing and availability on its newest full-frame mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, the Sony a7II, packing 24.3-megapixels and the first 5-axis image stabilization system to be found on a snapper with a sensor of that size. Joining the original a7 and a7R, and the more recent a7S, the a7II promises to correct for the sort of shake you'd experience when using telephoto lenses, when using high magnification, and when shooting low-light scenes or recording video, for a claimed total of 4.5 stops of faster shutter speed of correction.

Sony A7 II boasts 5-axis in-body stabilization

Sony has announced a new mirrorless camera, for now only in Japan, that will succeed its already impressive A7 camera from late 2013. This aptly named A7 II carries on many of the features of its predecessor, including the full-frame sensor and the hybrid auto focus. What's different here really, is the image stabilization technology. According to Sony, the A7 II has the worlds first optical 5-axis in-body shake correction mechanism that will further give confidence to photographers, letting them take steady shots even without a tripod.

Nikon Df Gold Edition to be limited to 1,600 units only

Nikon really loves its Df DSLR and gold. So much that it has announced yet another Gold Edition for the camera, but this time with a more subdued treatment. Opting for gold accents instead of smothering the whole camera in the color, this limited edition Nikon Df will be available in a total of 1,600 units only, 600 for only a camera and 1,000 including a kit. In all other aspects aside from the color, this Nikon Df remains exactly the same lightweight FX-format camera as the original.

Samsung’s “Project Beyond” camera explained in a video

The Samsung Gear VR is already notable and interesting just for the fact that it completely commoditizes virtual reality by turning the headset into just a smartphone accessory, an accessory to an expensive smartphone at that. Samsung apparently wasn't done yet. It is now generating some hpye and interest when it revealed its "Project Beyond", a rather weird looking, tripod-mounted camera that is designed to record the world in complete 360 degrees. And now we have a video explaining how and what for.

Ricoh Theta m15 360-degree camera coming November 14

If you think HTC's RE camera has a strange shape, then you might have have not been aware of Ricoh's Theta camera. Granted, it doesn't have that periscope-like form, but it still comes in that handy tubular design. But in the case of the Theta, that has a purpose, and a rather niche one at that. The Ricoh Theta camera has one and only one purpose: to take spherical shots instantly, making it the world's first, if not only, digital camera dedicated solely to 360-degree photography.
