When you take off the lens cap of your camera before shooting a photo, don't you sometimes start wondering where you should keep the cap? Although you could keep it in your bag, you might end up searching for it there later. Or you might have a strap tied on the lens cap but it could bother you while shooting.

Nothing fancy nor outstanding about Thanko's new Lens Cap Holder, but you will probably like it a lot.

Sony has taken things a bit further: the new 5-axis in-body stabilization can apparently work TOGETHER with the optical image stabilization built into sony’s E-Mount lenses to get the combined best of both worlds. It obviously remains to be seen how well that works in reality, but this could be a game changer.

The new Casio EXILIM series EX-ZR850 will be available on May 23 for about ¥32,000.

The new EX-ZR850 has an interval photography function that continues taking photos at regular intervals and can do this continuously for a maximum of 20 days, equaling about 500 hours of shooting. For example, you can very effectively track the movement of a flower blooming or scenery changing. There is also functionality to convert the interval photos into a movie.

Sony designed the HDR-AZ1 with a focus on downsizing and developed it on the assumption that users will control it through the live-view remote control "RM-LVR2V", which comes with a remote control kit (HDR-AZ1VR). So, the HDR-AZ1's control functions were simplified and it has only the Start/Stop button for recording and On/Off for Wi-Fi connection.
