CAM­ERA… AC­TION!

Cam­eras came in all shapes and sizes at IFA – here are six of the best

Focus-Science and Technology - - Innovations -

RI­COH THETA V

Ri­coh Theta’s new 360° cam­era is the first to be cer­ti­fied by Google as ‘Street View mo­bile-ready’, and is also the first to of­fer play­back of your 360° pic­tures di­rect to a tele­vi­sion. It’s con­trolled via an iOS/An­droid app, and can shoot 4K video as well as still im­ages. $430 (£315 ap­prox), theta360.com

SONY RX0

Mea­sur­ing just 60 x 41 x 30mm, this tiny 4K cam­era from Sony is de­signed for use as part of a mul­ti­cam­era VR setup, or for re­mote imag­ing. Wa­ter­proof to 10m and crush­proof to 200kg, the RX0 will boldly go where no cam­era has gone be­fore… $700 (£515 ap­prox), sony.com

LOMO’IN­STANT SQUARE

Aimed at In­sta­gram ad­dicts, this all-ana­logue in­stant cam­era uses Fu­ji­film’s widely avail­able In­stax film to shoot square, Po­laroid-style pics. The mod­ern world gets a look-in too, though, with a ‘full auto’ mode and re­mote shut­ter re­lease. $199 (£145 ap­prox), lo­mog­ra­phy.com

NIKON D850

This full-frame DSLR boasts a 45.7MP sen­sor, which would be im­pres­sive enough, but it can main­tain that res­o­lu­tion at 9fps, while the ISO range (32-102,400) is also im­pres­sive. There’s an op­ti­cal viewfinder, a 3.2-inch touch­screen, and it’ll shoot 4K video, too. $3,300 (£2,430 ap­prox), nikon.com

INSTA360 ONE

This con­sumer 360° cam­era from Insta360 re­tails for un­der £250, yet can shoot 4K 360° video and 24MP RAW stills, while a par­tic­u­larly neat touch is that its ac­com­pa­ny­ing selfie-stick will au­to­mat­i­cally be edited out of your footage with­out you lift­ing a fin­ger. $300 (£220 ap­prox), insta360.com

FU­JI­FILM X-E3

Un­like a lot of mir­ror­less com­pacts, the X-E3 fea­tures a proper op­ti­cal viewfinder as well as a touch­screen. There’s a joy­stick for fo­cus con­trol, while in­side lurks a 24.3MP X-Trans CMOS III sen­sor. Pic­tures can be trans­ferred to your lap­top or tablet via Blue­tooth. £849, fu­ji­film.com
