Canon's new four million ISO video camera leaves nothing in the dark. Ever been poking around in low-light with your camera and thought, "you know what, I could really do with an extra few million ISO"?

Canon's new four million ISO video camera leaves nothing in the dark

To be honest, neither have we because such a light-sensitivity would be ludicrous for most users. Well, that hasn't stopped the folks at Canon stepping things up in a big way with its full-frame ME20F-SH, a 4,000,000 ISO HD video camera that seems sure to bring the noise. Camlet Mount connects a smartphone or tablet to your DSLR. The integration of cameras in smartphones and tablets has seen many become accustomed to the oversized viewfinder provided by such mobile devices.

But such devices can't compete with dedicated DSLRs or mirrorless cameras when it comes to image quality and features, which is why Vancouver-based Camlet Products and New York-based IC Art NY have created the Camlet Mount to connect a mobile device to your camera. View all The mount, which is the subject of a crowdfunding campaign, connects to any standard camera hot shoe. Once the mobile device is strapped in, you can not only compose shots, but also interact with the controls on your camera through its touchscreen. Captured images can be saved to both the camera and the mobile device, and edited right on your phone or tablet. The mobile device's screen can be used as just a larger viewfinder, or can add a new layer of functionality to your camera depending on how you position it.

But, not only do some outperform their branded counterparts, others do something which mean they don't even have first-party rivals. The new Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM Art, for example, is the world's only zoom lens to achieve a maximum aperture F1.8 throughout the entire range. Most constant aperture zooms, even those targeted at pros, peak at F2.8 – with exceptions including the Olympus 14-35 mm F2. Sony announces new waterproof Handycam - (Private Browsing) Sony’s new everything-proof Actioncam is definitely a worthy opponent to the likes of the GoPro HERO, although sometimes people just want a user-friendly video camera that can go in the water.

Well, that’s where the Sony Handycam HDR-GW66VE comes into the picture. It’s a compact HD camcorder that can be submerged to a depth of 10 meters (33 feet) for up to an hour. Along with its imperviousness to water, the HDR-GW66VE is also dust- and dirt-proof, shockproof to a drop height of 1.5 meters (4.9 feet), and can operate in temperatures down to -10ºC (14ºF). The camera shoots at a maximum resolution of 1080p (50 fps), in a choice of AVCHD, MPEG2 or MP4 formats. It’s also able to capture 20-megapixel stills. Big O brings LCD viewfinder window to Outex DSLR housing system. While DSLRs give photographers great creative freedom and image quality, the cameras themselves don't cope too well with being exposed to excessive amounts of sand, mud, water or snow – which can be a pain if you get your kicks from shooting things like extreme sports.

Outex is a weather and modular waterproof housing system for DSLRs that works much like a drysuit for your camera, and can protect your gear underwater to a depth of 10 meters (33 feet). SteadyWheel takes a circular approach to stabilizing video. The SteadyWheel is a circular stabilizing rig for video cameras Image Gallery (5 images) As can be seen by the increasing number of stabilizing rigs available for DSLRs and small camcorders, people don’t like shaky hand-held video.

Most of those rigs are inspired by the Steadicam Smoothee, utilizing a counter-weighted arm that extends below the gimbal-mounted camera. It’s an effective set-up, but one that’s also kind of fiddly. Fabricator and machinist Robert Stone has created something much more simple, in the form of the SteadyWheel. Skink Pinhole Pancake Objektiv Pro Kit Leica M M6 M5 MP. Hinweis: Ihr Gebot ist bindend.

Fujifilm has officially unveiled its promised adapter to allow the use of Leica M-mount lenses on the X-Pro1. Unlike third-party versions, the adapter has electronic contacts for communication with the camera body, and a Function button that allows quick setting of the lens in use. To make full use of the adapter, a firmware update for the X-Pro1 (version 1.10) will be made available in June 2012. This will allow the user to create up to six lens profiles to correct distortion, vignetting and corner colour shading (in a similar manner to the Ricoh GXR Mount A12).

The camera can show framelines in its unique hybrid viewfinder for 21mm, 24mm, 28mm, and 35mm lenses; for other focal lengths the electronic viewfinder or rear screen will show a preview with 100% coverage of the field of view. Peak Design looks to put cameras on a Leash. Feeling pretty good about last year's Capture Camera Clip, Peak Design is back with another camera-hauling accessory.

Peak Design looks to put cameras on a Leash

The Leash is a versatile strap that carries and holds your camera in all kinds of convenient ways. View all Peak Design originally envisioned the Leash as a safety tether for the Capture clip. While working on that design, the company realized that it had much more potential. It developed it into a versatile strap solution with several easily configured forms. Peak Design's system uses small anchors that tie around any loop on a camera or piece of gear with a simple cow hitch/lark's head knot. There's also a second model – the Cuff – that is similar to the Leash, only smaller. ProDot makes your camera's shutter button more tactile.

ProDot makes your camera's shutter button more tactile

That's the claim from the makers of the ProDot, a tactile shutter release button which is currently doing the rounds on Kickstarter, and it appears many photographers think it could live up to the promise … because it sailed past its funding target in a matter of days. ProDot is an adhesive silicone dot which attaches to the shutter-button of your camera, and is said to make it more tactile while providing more precise control and vibration dampening. Transcend Wi-Fi SD cards give cameras a wireless boost. The Wi-Fi SD Memory Cards from Transcend feature a SDHC Class 10 speed rating and are available in 16GB or 32GB Image Gallery (4 images) While many cameras now pack Wi-Fi connectivity for the wireless sharing and transferring of captured images, those owning cameras without such capabilities need not necessarily have to shell out cash for an entirely new camera to get wireless connectivity.

Apparently need an alternative. Leica reveals the Leica M and the stripped back M-E. Since the introduction of the Leica M3 in 1954, the German camera manufacturer has generally distinguished its flagship rangefinders with numbers – prompting generations of photographers to lust after the M4, M6 or M9. However, each new generation of M camera will now simply be known as the "Leica M". But the camera formerly known as the M10 isn't all about the name change, it's also the first M-series to boast a CMOS sensor, Live View and HD video. View all Lecia also used Photokina 2012 to announce the release of an "affordable" rangefinder, the Leica M-E, which is essentially a slightly stripped back M-series camera.

Fujifilm announces X-Pro1 interchangeable lens camera system. When Fujifilm unveiled its new line-up ahead of CES 2012, there was a feeling among enthusiasts that the company was holding something back. Sure enough, the Japanese photography behemoth has now pulled back the curtain to reveal a new interchangeable lens digital camera system called the X-Pro1. The 16 megapixel camera will be initially joined by three prime lenses when made available next month, with more to follow later on. It features a number of new digital photography developments, including a brand new sensor, a film-like color filter array and the second generation hybrid multi viewfinder first seen in the FinePix X100.
