Digital Cameras / Camcorders

A digital camera or digicam is a camera that encodes digital images and videos digitally and stores them for later reproduction. Most cameras sold today are digital, and digital cameras are incorporated into many devices ranging from PDAs and mobile phones (called camera phones) to vehicles. Digital and film cameras share an optical system, typically using a lens with a variable diaphragm to focus light onto an image pickup device.  Digital cameras can display images on a screen immediately after being recorded, and store and delete images from memory. Many digital cameras can also record moving videos with sound. Some digital cameras can crop and stitch pictures and perform other elementary image editing.

What software update developed in the past year were you the most excited about?

I am very excited about 360 degrees cameras. I am not sure if they were developed last year. I "discovered" them recently and that is what matters to me ;) I like them because they are not as heavy as an drone and I think this camera will be great to bring on a hike and record the top of a mountain. The panoramic videos I've done on my hikes are very shaky and I think this type of camera will make justice to the gorgeous landscapes I have and will see. So, this type of camera is on my wish list :D

I linked a 360 degree video for those who haven't seen one. Don't forget to move the video from side to side, & up and down.

What technology do you think is a fad that won’t last?

Found another one: Snapchat spectacles. Okay, I'll admit I wanted one but I would've probably used it for a day and gotten bored. Also, I don't even have Snapchat.

Yup! Overall, I just can't see the average consumer using these. This reminds me of Google Glass...remember these?
