The best ... next-generation cameras

Panasonic's 3D wonder, Fujifilm's instant camera, Sony's interchangeable lens, and more

Panasonic HDC-SDT750
Panasonic has created the “first consumer camcorder to shoot in 3D” by outfitting it with a “bundled lens.”  The lens records moving images in binocular vision, then converts the images to 3D video.

Leica X1
“Its retro look aside,” this point-and-shoot digital camera is “entirely cutting-edge.” It packs the best of “high-end” single-lens-reflex cameras—including a superfast 24 mm f/2.8 lens—into a compact, old-school package.

Fujifilm Instax Mini 7s
In this “age of upload,” Fujifilm’s instant camera offers memories more tangible than Facebook albums: instant photos and permanent captions. It’s “space-age execution” of the magic of an old Polaroid.

Sony NEX-VG10
This camera “merges the best elements” of camcorders and single-lens-reflex cameras. Its still-photography genes are evident in its capacity to accept interchangeable lenses—a “first for consumer video cams.”

Casio Exilim EX-H20G
This “all-knowing camera” tracks your location with a motion sensor and an accelerometer. Even if you can’t recall where that photo was taken, it will be “geo-tagged relative to your last location.”
