New in Tech: Polaroid Underwater Camera Housing Case

As a photography lover and owner of a DSLR, we try to get the most out of our photo taking experience. We use our digital camera for all the photos for our blog posts, which means we take it with us everywhere. Of course, there are some places our DSLR cannot be taken…like underwater. We always wished we could turn our Canon into an underwater camera for when we’re at the pool or on vacation; a possibility we never thought would exist, until the introduction of the Polaroid Underwater Camera Housing Case. Thanks to this dive rated, waterproof housing case, there’s no need for us to buy a separate underwater camera, we can now take our Canon from land to sea.

First Look | PENTAX Launches Color to Order Camera System

PENTAX posed the question “What if colors didn’t have to be kept inside?” As a fan of photography and a blogger who takes her own photos, I invested in a DSLR but it is bulky and of course it only comes in basic black which as a lover of bold colors like pink, is a bit of a downer for me (I do punch it up with a bright pink camera strap from Capturing Couture). Pentax actually answered their own question with a stunning array of K-50 DSLR, K-500 DSLR and compact Q7 cameras in numerous brilliant and eye-catching color combinations. No longer will you have to settle for a boring looking camera.

The mid-level PENTAX K-50 DSLR is available in 120 brilliant and eye-catching color combinations and sets a new standard in the customization of electronics with its Color to Order system, an industry first which makes this a breeze to show your style and personality with a unique offering of colors; it allows you to accent your personal style by selecting a body and grip color.

The entry-level PENTAX K-500 DSLR augments PENTAX’s DSLR lineup by including advanced features not found in the entry-level class. Perfect for families and casual photographers, “the K-500 features a 16 megapixel APS-C CMOS image sensor, fast continuous shooting, high sensitivity shooting up to ISO 51200, 100% field of view, in-body shake reduction, and an advanced auto focus module”. The K-500’s wide selection offers simple user-modes and creative tools that enable limitless personalized expressions while its ergonomics and menu layout make it comfortable to use.

With the compact Q7 also available in 120 color combinations thanks to PENTAX’s Color To Order™ system, it ensures there is a camera for every taste and style along with features and settings to match. The Q7 is the smallest and lightest compact system camera in the world which allows creative control to the consumer with a complete system of interchangeable lenses, filters, viewfinders, and fun smart effects and digital filters.
