Hipster filmmakers rejoice! Sure, you can film your sugar glider climbing up a vintage floral curtain with an average camera, or you can do it using this D16 Cinema Camera. Combining your grandmother's Bolex with the newest in convenient technology, you'll get the best of both worlds to better record those cinematic gems. Promising to give your film an organic look, the D16 is comfortable to hold and will feel like an old school 16mm camera. Recording in 12-bit CinemaDNG raw format, this gadget will deliver uncompressed footage with 24-bit 96 kHz studio quality audio (apparently, you won't need any additional recording devices, which any struggling film student knows is pretty darn amazing). The battery will last you four hours, while the dual CF card slots and USB makes downloading your footage a snap. Plus, for an additional $300, you can upgrade the SSD drive to 500GB for extra storage — totally worth it.
