Phase One IQ3 100MP Achromatic is a $50k beast for pro photographers

Phase One has launched its new IQ3 100MP Achromatic, a camera with a 101-megapixel sensor and an ISO topping out at 51,200. This model captures black-and-white medium-format photographs including light beyond the visible spectrum. This is due to the sensor's lack of an infrared filter and color filter array, and the end result is, among other things, 'the highest level of details, nuance and luminance,' according to Phase One. Such features don't come cheap, however.

CROZ is a do-it-yourself digital camera for minimalists

A new digital camera has hit the market, but it's not like the others. CROZ is a small digital camera powered by a couple AAA batteries and, most notably, it is sold disassembled in a kit.

This camera is so fast, it makes light stand still

Sony might boast of a 1,000 fps CMOS and Samsung might flaunt its 240 fps slo-mo on the Galaxy S8. Neither, however, has anything on this camera that could probably even catch The Flash in action. Besting even scientific high-speed cameras and their 100,000 fps rates, this image capturing device developed by Lund University researchers can record video at an mind-blowing rate of five trillion images per second. In short, 5,000,000,000,000 fps.

Google's Pixel smartphone is notable for several reasons, not the least of which is its incredible low-light camera performance.

Intsta360 Pro adds 8K to the equation, now on pre-order

Pretty soon, there will be no excuse for anyone and everyone not to create 360-degree content. Of course, that doesn't mean that everyone will be able to enjoy those via VR headsets, but at least modern browsers can give them a foretaste of that. 360-degree cameras are becoming more and more accessible, with companies like Insta360 putting out portable and affordable cameras.
