New Cameras for the Holidays

Necessity is truly the mother of invention. As camera phones have become increasing popular for casual snapshots, camera manufacturers have had to significantly increase the appeal and diversity of their products. While the last several years have seen primarily minor upgrades in routine camera features, this year is quite the exception. Several companies have responded to the changes in consumer habits with some very outside-the-box options. Plus, on many of the traditional camera products prices have really decreased in order to make them more affordable (and appealing) to more people. All of this is great news for consumers, as now you can choose from completely new types of products or save money on existing items, all while capturing better images more easily than ever.

Update (11/19/13): the issue with Apple's Safari web browser on Mac OS X has been fixed! The new system includes a brand new HTML-based uploader for Safari 6.1 and 7.0 on all affected versions of Mac OS X. Google's Chrome web broswer still doesn't work for image uploading though.
