Unless you fiddle with video gear or streaming networks on a professional basis, the brand name Mushroom probably isn’t familiar, but their products make life easier for people delivering the news: they specialize in mobile uplinks and aggregating broadband traffic over multiple lines. They also have, unsurprisingly, an affection for naming their products things like “Truffle” and “Porcini”.
But their latest tool, the Teleporter, is about make getting video on your iPhone far less difficult.

One of the big disruptions in cameras lately has been the rapid rise of professional level digital video. The Canon 5DMkII suddenly became a filmmaker’s darling because it was (relatively) cheap and had interchangeable lenses. The camcorder industry is still getting over this drop kick to the face even as the stills side of things rushes to add 1080p video to everything, right down to their point-and-shoot cams to compete with the Flip.
This is Sony’s NEX FS-100. What’s under the hood, and does it measure up?

Though we never actually see them, the cameras in cell phones have to be quite tiny in order to tuck in next to all the other internal components of your phone. So it follows that the idea of a tiny camera, while novel, isn’t anything new. But this here MAME-CAM is the first bite-sized, standalone camera that I’ve seen, and it looks awesome, even if totally useless.

Fujifilm announced its new FinePix W3 today, a point-and-shoot that can shoot 3D footage in HD. The model builds on the W1, a non-HD 3D point-and-shoot, adding a new processor that allows for 3D video footage in 720p.
The camera uses two 10-megapixel sensors that film in sync to capture the 3D effect. To view that wonderful, lifelike footage, Fujifilm includes a mini HDMI port for connecting to your new 3DTV and enjoying the fruits of your labor. In case you don’t happen to have a 3D HDTV around, simply view your video on the 3.5-inch autosteroscopic LCD display on the camera itself–no glasses necessary.

We’ve seen a few 3D camcorders here at GadgetCrave, but up until now they’ve been focused on the professional market. Panasonic unveiled its first consumer 3D video camera today, so we can get a look at the next-generation of electronics that will be collecting dust in the attics of obsessive first adopters in just a few short years. Here goes–
The HDC-SDT750 features two individual lenses built into one camera housing that record separate images for each eye and then blend them together for playback. Each lens records in near-960 x 1080 HD quality. The camera can also shoot video in standard, ol’ 2D and includes a 12x optical zoom for 2D video.

Toshiba is working on making cameras wireless, but instead of sticking to the trend of the electronics industry–that is to say, introducing a shiny new product that makes you ditch your “old” device and shell out hundreds to keep up with the latest tech–it’s actually doing consumers a solid in attempting to add the technology to a vehicle that can easily upgrade older devices. What I’m trying to say with all that verbiage is that Toshiba and a partner–Trek 2000–have built 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi capability into SDHC cards. Instead of a new, $300 camera, you’ll simply need a new Toshiba SDHC card to bring wireless capabilities to your existing digital.

The horrible images captured on a cell phone camera have become such a regular part of our everyday lives that they’re all but inescapable. But, what if there was a way to escape the fuzzy, barely distinguishable photos captured by your average cell phone and add a little crispness back to still-captured life? Now there is–at least over in Japan.

Sharp has a mini 3D camera in the works that will be finding its way to manufacturers this summer. The tiny, dual-lensed camera is capable of shooting 3D 720p video footage and 3D stills. It is designed to fit into a cell phone or other mobile device. Sharp plans to start getting them out to manufacturers by July.

You may not be able to shoot stunning, Avatar-quality video on the new DXG-321 3D camcorder, but you will be able to capture your home videos in some sort of 3D. How good it will look is another question altogether.
The camcorder, which will be offered through novelty gadget retailers like Hammacher and Schlemmer and SkyMall, as opposed to more legitimate outlets, features two separate lenses that allow for 3D recording.
