The biggest photography-gear expo on the globe, Photokina, got under way this week in Germany as manufacturers rolled out everything from state-of-the-art lenses to geotagging devices. Wired takes a look:
- Fuji’s FinePix Real 3D System incorporates dual lenses that capture separate images, then meshes them into a single 3-D file.
- Minox updated its iconic Spy Camera for the digital age. More fun is its Digital Pen Spy Camera, which captures AVI video from a ballpoint pen casing. So 007.
- Though Olympus was tight-lipped, next year’s Micro Four-Thirds digital camera will combine the design of a pocket digital with the picture quality of an SLR.
- ATP’s Photo Finder Mini will geotag your memory card with GPS data, making Google Earth your photo album.
