I am a huge fan of fisheye photography, but couldn’t get into it because the equipment is too expensive. Thats why “I was all over it” when this fisheye camera from Paul Smith ($150) came out. It features a fisheye No2 lens, a 180 degree wide-angle view, and runs on 35mm film. More images.

The Minoru 3D Webcam is the first of its kind. It works with any webcam software and requires the use of blue/red 3D glasses. I wonder if any adult webcam sites will be picking these up. Minoru will be available in December for $100.

Check out what Sony has in store for us now; two new cyber-shot touch screen, 10 megapixel digital cameras. You might have trouble choosing between the two. The DSC-T700 ($400) comes with a 4GB built in storage space that can hold nearly 1,000 full-resolution photos, which you can view on the 3.5 inch LCD touchscreen. However, the DSC-T77 ($300) stole the title for the world’s thinnest touchscreen point and shoot camera. Only 5/8 of an inch thin with a 3 inch LCD touchscreen. Both cameras feature updated scene recognition technology, a new anti-blink function, Smile Shutter and face detection technologies. Taking a great picture never seemed so easy. See how slim the T77 really is.

Transcend has recently introduced its new 32GB 133X CompactFlash Card making it the largest capacity device in its class. The card itself is designed for serious photographers and at a insane 32gb of storage it should be more than sufficient for any professional applications. Unfortunately price and availability are currently unknown.

Today Fujifilm announced several new models including the new colorful 7.2 MP Fujifilm FinePix Z10fd. The Z10fd has 3x optical zoom, 2.5-inch LCD, up to 1600 ISO, face detection with auto red eye removal, IR beaming, and also a blogging mode (reduces photo size on cam for quick downloading). Also included is the ability for 320×240 video capture and a dual shot mode for back to back shots (with and without flash). Most importantly the new Fuji cameras include a SD card slot in addition to the usual XD card slot found on most Fuji cameras. However the big twist is that Fuji is introducing the Z10fd in a wide array of colors including Black, Blue, Green, Orange, and Pink. (all pictured after the jump)

This is an iPhone right? Wrong! This is the Meizu MiniOne, and it one-ups the iPhone in nearly every category. The MiniOne compared to the iPhone (MiniOne / iPhone) has more storage (4gb-16gb / 4gb-8gb), a higher resolution screen (720×480 / 320 by 480), two cameras, more megapixels in the camera (3mp / 2mp), GPS, TV Tuner, and costs less ($260-4gb / $499-4gb). I tend to stay away from trendy apple products after my ipod broke, but now I have good reason.
