Leica Q unveiled: a compact camera with full-frame sensor

Leica has announced its new Leica Q camera, a digital shooter that is hailed as offering the fastest lens in its class. The new Q is a hybrid of sorts, sporting a compact design and easy to use interface alongside the image quality you get with the maker’s “M” lineup, including a full-frame sensor and optical image stabilization. Joining this is a new feature called “digital frame selector”, which allows the photographer to display the focal lengths (35 and 50mm) by pressing a button. The camera was made in Germany.

Sony RX10 II boasts support for long 4K video recording

Sony has introduced a pair of new cameras, the RX100 IV and the RX10 II camera. The RX10 II is a high-zoom shooter with the same 1.0 type stacked Exmor RS CMOS sensor as the other aforementioned model, though it has a larger, more robust body than the RX100 IV's compact design. Sony says this model includes both a DRAM memory chip and fast signal processing, the combination of which results in 5x faster image data readout and other pro-level features.

Gekkopod is a flexible, wrappable camera and phone tripod

Gekkopod is a flexible, wrappable camera and phone tripod

Tripods are becoming increasingly flexible, and Gekkopod is perhaps the best example of that. The Gekkopod tripod can hold a smartphone and a regular camera (though not at the same time) and be positioned just about anywhere the user would like — wrapped around the end of a long stick to be used as a selfie stick, around a tree branch to record some event, or on a flat but angular surface. The idea is that you can use the Gekkopod in a variety of situations that would otherwise necessitate many mounting accessories.

Ricoh GR II camera (allegedly) appears in leaked pic

The next version of the Ricoh GR camera, the aptly named Ricoh GR II, has surfaced ahead of its official launch. An alleged picture of the camera has surfaced in a leak, and if it is the real deal it seems the maker will be offering a second model that looks very similar the first iteration (though there are some subtle differences). It is a PR image, and so assuming it is real, its existence likely points towards a nearing official announcement.

MSI has a few new cameras to show off at Computex 2015, and while it's going easy on the details for now, we do have a look at the various devices and a general idea of what each one provides.

There's also a camera that brings with it a bunch of embedded infrared LEDs, allowing for use in dim and dark settings; and, finally, there's a high resolution IP camera with support for Android and iOS devices.

Samsung NX500 Review – the TARDIS of cameras

Samsung NX500 Review – the TARDIS of cameras

Is a bigger camera necessarily better? Or, put a different way, does a big sensor need to have a big body wrapped around it? Samsung would argue no, and the NX500 is its evidence. Distilling much of the NX1 into a form-factor only slightly larger than a point-and-shoot, it’s 28.2-megapixels of interchangeable lens camera with a 4K video recording bonus. Samsung can’t work miracles, mind, especially for $799 with a lens thrown in, and so there are some compromises to consider along the way.

Fujifilm announces X-T10 with new AF system, high speed EVF

As expected, Fujifilm has finally revealed the latest member in its long line of X-series interchangeable lens cameras. And as expected, the new X-T10 is pretty much a minor upgrade from last year's X-T1. That said, if you're a digital photography enthusiast who's still in the market for a lightweight companion, Fujifilm wants you to direct your gaze to the X-T10 host of features, which include a new 77-point AF system and an electronic real time view finder with an almost unnoticeable small 0.005 second lag.

Leica Monochrom (Typ 246) DNGs can “destroy” Apple Photos library

Remember that new Leica Monochrom camera? If you’re an OS X user, beware: a new advisory warns that a serious bug could result in your entire Apple Photos library being destroyed.

Canon warns EOS 5D DSLR main mirror could detach

Canon warns EOS 5D DSLR main mirror could detach

Canon has issued a service advisory warning EOS 5D users that a problem with adhesive could result in the main mirror detaching. The camera's available servicing period comes to an end this upcoming September, making it important that users get the problem fixed soon if it has occurred. The issue itself stems from the adhesive potentially deteriorating over time, causing the mirror to possibly come loose and obviously making the camera essentially useless (if you like to the use the viewfinder, that is). There are pics showing the potential issue after the jump.
