12th January 2013 | Katherine Jane

It seems that South Korean manufacturer Samsung continues its quest for world domination – via the design of admittedly fine products with increasingly fine retro product design too – by announcing the release of the NX300; their latest series of their 3D capable mirror-less wi-fi cameras.

Boasting a 20.3 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, the device is capable of capturing imagesat a range of ISO 100 to 25600.

The new camera also supports the ability
 to shoot continuous burst photos at up to 8.6 FPS with additional full HD video recording capabilities. its 3.31 inch AMOLED touchscreen goes hand in hand with its built-in wi-fi, making it easier to share pictures to friends, family or the web.

Samsung has also introduced the world’s first 2D/3D 45mm F1.8 lens system, which can be used conventionally in two dimension, or to capture photo stills and full 1080p video in three-dimension.

Canon will soon be bringing tiny new digital camera to the market – the Powershot N. Measuring just 3.1 x 2.4 x 1.2 inches, the 12.1 megapixel camera features a 90º flip-out touchscreen display on the back in replacement of the regular buttons and has Wi-Fi connectivity, allowing you to instantly share your photos online without having to connect to your laptop first.

There is also a new ECO mode that Canon will be adding to all Powershot models going forward, meaning you can save an additional 30% of your battery consumption. The Powershot N is set for release in April and will retail for $300 (approx. £190).

Designboom provides more info about this attractive looking little toy:
