Back in 2013, we talked a bit about a camera called the Socialmatic that was going from concept to reality. Fast-forward over a year and Polaroid has announced that the Socialmatic camera will be on store shelves this holiday season.
Incoming Physics student Ollie Baker used the money he got from his Arkwright Scholarship to transfer the brains of a Sony Nex-5 into a Konica Auto S3, the latter being an analog rangefinder from the 70s.
Ollie calls his resulting device the FrankenCamera (not to be confused with the open source project of the same name).

Samsung has added a new digital camera to its lineup called the NX2000. The camera has an exceptional resolution of 20.3-megapixels and uses an APS-C CMOS sensor. One of the best features of the camera is its blazing quick shutter able to activate in 1/4000th of a second to catch fast action.

Samsung launched the original Galaxy Camera several months ago.

Nikon has announced a new DX-format digital SLR camera called the D7100, and it looks like a very capable camera for the price. It uses a DX-format CMOS sensor, offering an 24.1 megapixel resolution.

I can be honest and say that I’m a horrible photographer. I have a fancy DSLR camera that I bought a few years ago and I always use it in automatic mode. The reason I wanted the camera was that it had a fast shutter so I could actually take a picture of my kids, rather than an ear or an elbow at sporting events.

I really like my DSLR camera as far as the photo quality goes, but I hate lugging that heavy beast around. I’ve had an eye out for a new more compact digital camera that can offer similar image quality and many people are doing the same thing.
