Alpinist Case

So you need the durability and tank like build of one of those “high impact” cameras, but you need the image quality of something like an LX5 or Leica D-Lux? No sweat. Grab yourself one of these crazy ass Alpinist cases and you are ready for just about any extreme activity.

Red Pop

Another Kickstarter project that I am in love with is the Red Pop. Essentially, it adds a button to your iPhone and makes the act of taking a photo much more natural. I’ve seen some great photographers take some pretty incredible shots with the iPhone 4. An accessory like this makes it that much easier.

Teamwork Bags

This is a friend of a friend type of deal… The guys at Teamwork are trying to kickstart a new line of bags made with some killer materials discarded from different military avenues and the like. I desperately want one of the messenger bags. Details and a great video can be found here.

Get ready for long exposures here.

The idea of putting the sensor in the lens of a camera rather than the body isn’t a new one… However, this concept is the best that I’ve seen. Essentially, these smart folks built a full frame sensor inside of a camera lens that communicates wirelessly with the camera body. In this case, the body happens to be a modified iPhone. Brilliant… The future looks bright. Doubt me? Watch the videos:
