The Fujifilm X-A3 is an inexpensive 24 Megapixel mirrorless camera with a classic rangefinder design. The X-A3 is targeted more toward beginners and social shooters, with its flip-up, selfie-friendly LCD serving as exhibit A. Compared to the next model up, the X-E2S, the X-A3 has a lower quality build and fewer direct controls, and also lacks the electronic viewfinder of that model. The X-A3 also uses a traditional (Bayer) color filter rather than the X-Trans filters found on the company's more expensive models, such as the X-E2S.

Conversely, it's been possible to extract still frames from 4K and 6K Raw video, but the level of detail is still below what you can get with a high end DSLR.

Researchers invented almost completely flat camera that captures images without lenses
So far, there has been no camera that can work without lenses, but researchers at Caltech, a science and engineering institute, have developed a new camera design that is actually capable of capturing an image without using a traditional optical system.

As a result, the engineers have created an ultra-thin and ultra-small chip, which, according to them, may one day replace today's digital cameras and make them really, really thin.

But the Sony A9 looks like it has the chops, if not to bring their reign to an end, at least make significant inroads into the territory held by the Canon EOS-1D and Nikon D5 series models. In addition to a maximum continuous-shooting speed of 20 frames per second matched by a 693-point phase-detection autofocus system, the A9 brings in-body image stabilization, something those dSLRs lack.

Sony still third globally but bullish about 2017 prospects
The company says the move to higher value products allowed Digital Imaging's operating income to maintain essentially flat, despite declining sales. It attributes these declines to a combination of a shrinking market and missed sales opportunities due to the Kumamoto earthquakes. Also counting against its 2016 numbers were adverse foreign exchange movements. The figures also looked bad compared with 2015, as the group had received a one-off insurance payment that year, following flooding in Thailand.

Canon EOS 77D Review
The Canon EOS 77D (9000D in Japan) is a lightweight 24MP APS-C DSLR that offers impressive Dual Pixel Autofocus, good external controls and WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. It slots between the Rebel T7i and EOS 80D, and can be thought of as the successor to the Rebel T6s; if the name doesn't make that obvious, the specifications and feature additions over its lower-end Rebel sibling should.

As with the previous two versions, it has a 1"-type sensor, 24-70mm equivalent F1.8-2.8 lens but gains 24fps burst shooting in both JPEG and Raw with full autofocus and autoexposure(!), oversampled 4K video recording, and plenty more.

Fujifilm GFX 50S versus Pentax 645Z versus Hasselblad X1D
Digital medium format has previously been the preserve of professional photographic businesses; commercial concerns that can justify investing tens of thousands of dollars on a tool that offers resolution and image quality beyond the capabilities of consumer cameras (or, at least, those that can recoup the rental cost).

Fujifilm X-T20 Review
The Fujifilm X-T20 is a midrange SLR-styled mirrorless camera that sits above the X-E2S and below the X-T2. the X-T20 replaces the X-T10 and offers a host of new features, including Fujifilm's latest 24MP CMOS sensor and image processor, faster burst shooting, any improved autofocus system, 4K video capture and more. In many ways, it's a smaller, less expensive 'little brother' to the X-T2, a camera that earned a Gold Award when we reviewed it last year.

Full-res image samples from the 16-module Light L16 camera
The Light L16 camera has been in the works for years now. A 16-module camera that looks like a smartphone, it uses up to 10 camera modules at once to capture 52-megapixel (minimum) photographs, and promises to "DSLR quality in the palm of your hand." Plenty of people are skeptical of that claim, but now that the L16 is finally shipping to pre-order customers, Light has released three high-resolution image samples for you to pour over and critique.

The Insta360 Air is a smartphone add-on that turns your Android device into a fully-fledged 360-degree VR camera. it's capable of capturing still images and video, and comes with a live-streaming function. It only weighs 26.5 grams / ~1oz, comes with a protective rubber case and attaches to your phone either via the microUSB or USB Type-C port. we got our hands on the latter version and have tried it out on the Huawei P10 and Motorola Moto Z Force.

The Nikon D7500 is a midrange APS-C DSLR that both sits below and borrows a lot from Nikon's APS-C flagship D500 including its 20.9MP sensor, high-res metering sensor (used for subject recognition) and very probably its image processor. In a lot of ways, it's like a mini D500, which in and of itself is like a mini D5. All three are built for speed.

These include cameras strapped to a 16-35mm (ish) F2.8 lens, a 24-70mm F2.8 and a 70-200mm F2.8 to make sure you don't miss a thing.

Throwback Thursday: Apple QuickTake cameras, pioneers of consumer digital photography
While Apple Inc. is known for being a pioneer in the world of computers and smartphones, it also produced some of the first consumer digital cameras. the QuickTake 100, released in 1994, was built by Kodak and priced at $750. It had a unique binocular-like design and captured images at a whopping 640 x 480. It wasn't designed for a day of shooting. In fact, the internal memory filled up after just eight shots. An RS-232C port was used to transfer photos (in QuickTake or PICT format) to your Mac.
