Best cameras of 2012

leave a comment »

In case you missed it, it’s not too late to check out (and even probably buy) the dpreview.com selection of the best cameras of 2012 based on a poll of the readers they conducted:

This year was one of the busiest that any of us can remember, and saw serious new products from all the major manufacturers. This was the year of the groundbreaking 36MP Nikon D800, the incredibly ambitious Olympus OM-D as well as an all-new system cameras from Fujifilm, with the innovative X-Pro 1 and X-E1. Sony had an amazingly busy year as well, bringing us the great value SLT A-57 and the feature-packed SLT-A99, along with a host of NEX upgrades. Canon wasn’t idle either, and consolidated its enthusiast-oriented DSLRs with the long-awaited EOS 5D Mark III and, at the end of the year, the EOS 6D. Meanwhile, Pentax revamped its popular K-5 with the new K-5 II and K-5 IIs and introduced its first large-sensor mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, the K-01 which was … interesting.

Now, moving forward, I am beginning to wonder what would the best cameras be in 2013. If 2012 is any indication, it looks like we will definitely have something to look forward to!

Memoto photographs your entire life, then sorts it too

Mark Wilson, Fast Co.Design:

I’m hooked on Instagram. It’s lame to say that, to admit you actually adore some mass-market social media service. But I love to see snapshots of my friends’ lives–candids and composed photos alike. So the question becomes, would I be interested in seeing and sharing even more … much, much more? Memoto is a wearable lifecam that’s banking on us all answering “yes.” Recently featured on Kickstarter, the Memoto is like a Microsoft Sensecam for the post-iPod era. It’s a mere 1.4-inch square that clips to your shirt to automatically take photos all day every day. It exudes smart industrial design. When you want to take photos, you clip it on. When you want privacy, you just take it off or stick it in your pocket. And despite being uber tiny, the Memoto manages to convey its purpose as a mini cam that’s aimed at who you’re talking to.
