The Point Grey Flea3 ($945) is so tiny, you may experience delusional thoughts about the size of your hands for weeks after purchasing one. And not only is it small, but it also shoots 4K resolution video. The USB 3.0 cable provides the power and sends the content to your computer, making it perfect for surveillance duties. Just remember: When you go to buy new batting gloves, you’re still a medium.

The world will never know about the ghost slug and its appetite for destruction until you film the first documentary about it. Yes, you. You have to do it. You’re gonna need a camera, and the Blackmagic Cinema Camera ($2,995) might be the way to go. This mighty mite features a massive 2.5K sensor, 24-30fps, built-in high-speed SSD recorder that captures 12-bit CinemaDNG, ProRes and DNxHD files, and 5″ capacitive touchscreen controls. It’s also built to be user-friendly and rugged, and as we all know, that’s vital when capturing slug footage.

0.1 seconds. Now that’s fast. In fact, that’s about how fast the new Ricoh CX6 digital camera achieves autofocus with its high magnification 10.7x (28-300 mm) optical wide-angle zoom lens. The new model (available in black, silver or pink) is being marketed as a tool that you’ll want and need to use daily, and there are plenty of features to back this up.
The CX6 has a high-brightness LCD monitor that’s about 1.7 times brighter than the previous model for better outdoor use. For telephoto shooting, the zoom-assist monitor displays a small image on the LCD monitor, so you can check the framing of your shot before you shoot. The CX6 also has a super-resolution technology and a noise reduction function for high image quality, an aperture/shutter-speed priority (A/S) model for even greater shooting freedom, a movie release button for better movie shooting, and a “bleach bypass” for those who prefer more creative shoots.
