If you just can't get enough ofyou, Panasonic has joined therecent parademirrorless cameras marketed at selfie photographers. TheLumix GF7's Micro Four Thirds, 16-megapixel sensor will give you much nicer shots than your smartphone ever could without being a burden to haul around.

Despite the growing sophistication of smartphone cameras, camera makers are relentless in coming up with ways to sell their wares to the crowd. They primarily do this by combining some professional quality features and hardware inside very portable bodies.
Here at CES 2015, we got our hands on Canon’s newest Powershot point-and-shoot cameras. their SX610 offers an 18x optical zoom via the 25-450mm lens, while the SX710 gets even more detailed with a 30x zoom from a 25-750mm lens. If you’re in need of more, the SX530 is about as good as a pocketable camera gets with 50x zoom from a 24-1200mm lens.
This year's CES 2015 is getting crowded than ever. One of the companies super busy showing off new goods is Alcatel. It's actually a surprise that the brand has a lot of new things to offer but that means more options for the Android lovers who are demanding for more affordable mid-range smartphones.
This week we've got one whole heck of a lot of Canon photography equipment being revealed, with cameras popping up from the very inexpensive to the top of the line in personal shooters. The SX410 IS comes as the successor to the SX400 HS, the PowerShot ELPH 350 HS comes as the successor to the ELPH 340 HS, and the EOS Rebel T6i comes as the latest edition of the "classic" Rebel.

ASUS was gleefully teasing something special for its flagship CES 2015 smartphone, and sure enough it is, with the ASUS ZenFone Zoom squeezing in a 3x optical zoom. The new Android handset has a 5.5-inch Full HD display and runs the latest version, 5.0 Lollipop, but it's the backside which we're most intrigued by, with its 13-megapixel camera and laser auto-focus system.
No longer a part of Sony, VAIO likes the look of that smartphone market, and has decided to go up against its former parent company's Xperia series with its own creation -- one that looks very familiar to our smartphone-seasoned eyes. It's called the VAIO Phone, and it's launching in Japan in collaboration with one of the country's smaller carriers, b-mobile, on March 20th.
Panasonic has announced that it has a new digital camera that will finally be landing in the UK, at least in limited numbers. The camera is the DMC-CM1 and it is powered by the Android operating system. Initially the CM1 was expected to launch in France and Germany only. There was strong enough demand in the UK that Panasonic will bring a limited number of cameras to the UK starting on December 1.
Olympus has outed a new retro-styled camera, the Stylus SH-2, a compact point-and-shoot that still squeezes in a 24x optical zoom, image stabilization, and RAW support. Offered with its aluminum alloy body in either silver or black, the SH-2 has a 16-megapixel sensor and records 1080/60p video, though is also capable of turning its metaphorical hand to 120fps and 240fps slow motion.
Smartphone cameras are getting more sophisticated and more capable, but there are just some things that they could not reach that a dedicated diigtal camera can. Usually, this is because of design or shape constraints. After all, you wouldn't want your smartphone to look like camera, unless you actually fancy something like the Galaxy K Zoom.
When ASUS was teasing a smartphone with big badaboom camera technology for CES 2015 , they must have been referring to the ASUS ZenFone Zoom, a smartphone that carries 3x optical zoom for its main camera. Let’s see what this new shooter-with-a-phone has to offer. First up, the ASUS ZenFone Zoom has a phablet-like 5.5-inch Full HD (1080p) display running Android 5.0 out of the box.
Just because it's holiday season doesn't mean that the mobile world is at a complete standstill. Though many indeed have set their eyes on CES 2015, which is just a few weeks away, some still managed to sneak in a few surprises before the year is over. And, of course, the rumor mill is starting to heat up with stuff to expect early next year.
Why carry two devices when you can just have one? That is the rhetorical question that BLU Products wants you to ask yourself when trying to consider why you would want to invest on a BLU Studio 7.0, which is, for all intents and purposes, a 7.0-inch smartphone.
A new Google smartphone is a big deal, and the Nexus 6 is a very big phone indeed. Largest so far of Google's collaborations with handset manufacturers, and first to see Motorola take the Nexus reins - ironically just as the two firms part company - it's a riff on this year's Moto X but with a new turn of speed and a crazy Quad HD display. It's also the launch vehicle for Android 5.
