Designer Stefan Radev has gone ahead and pulled out a successor to the Leica S2. The S5 is a concept, but that’s pretty apparent with its amped-up specs. Some of these specs include a 50 megapixel sensor and a 3-inch screen with 950,000 pixels. The s5 also has WLAN capabilities along with a HDMI and USB 2.0 sockets.

The latest digital SLR to join Nikon’s stable, the D5000 is compact and powerful. It’s a remarkable blend of simplicity and advanced D-SLR capabilities with breathtaking 12.3-megapixel image quality. The swivel LCD monitor is one of our favorite features as it allows you to take a shot from just about any angle or height. 

You can add an optional GPS unit for geo-tagging that automatically identifies and records every image’s latitude, longitude and altitude, with satellite time-of-day.

For some reason, they chose to hold off on unveiling the world’s first WiFi camera with a built-in web browser until today. The Cyber-shot DSC-G3 definitely deserves its own spotlight, as it enables users to upload images and video directly to popular sharing sites whereever a WiFi connection is available.

You also get access to Sony’s Easy Upload Home Page via AT&T WiFi, which provides easy entrance into Shutterfly, Picasa, YouTube, Photobucket and Dailymotion. It packs 10 megapixels, 4x optical zoom and face detection and it’s available now for about $500.
