Sigma has announced a new digital camera series that is called the Sigma dp Quattro. The Quattro name comes from the use of a new Foveon X3 digital image sensor that is of the Quattro generation.

It would appear that we've hit a camera release pocket this week as brands like Panasonic bring on devices like the Lumix DMC-GH4 DSLM 4K digital camera for the masses. We've seen Nikon release three sets overnight, and there are more accessories coming to he market this season than you can shake a stick at. This begins with a Fitbit Flex collection of accessories by Tory Burch.
The last of the new digital point and shoot cameras that Nikon has unveiled today is the Coolpix S32. This camera is designed to be easy to use and family friendly with the ability to survive splashes and drops. The S32 promises to be easy enough to use that anyone in the family can take their own photos.
Sony has announced that it has updated its interesting QX line of lens-style cameras. The two updated cameras include the QX 100 and the QX 10. These cameras look like a lens and can be attached to the back of a smartphone. The updated features will make the cameras more usable for a variety of photography and video recording tasks.
Shapify has ushered in the new era of the selfie, making it simple for interested folks to have their own 3D-printed self for perching on a desk or as the coolest action figure ever. The service allows those with a Kinect sensor to snap a couple of selfies, upload them, and get a 3D-printed replica in the mail a short while later.
What appeared to be a relatively small news bit from the folks at camera-focused group Looxcie earlier this year during CES 2014 has suddenly taken center stage, as their Enterprise-focused service "Vidcie" takes center stage. While it's not surprising to see a company such as this take on a business-aimed initiative like Vidcie, it's not often a company suggests that they'll be moving away from their consumer-aimed products so strongly.
There's an update for the app called Cinemagraph out there this week that allows the user to export the media created by the app through the camera of the mobile device it's on. With the original release of Cinemagraph, users were able to share their moving-image creations with the ecosystem created for the app itself. With this release, the app is opened up to a much more free system.
