HTC is taking on GoPro with a camera that is essentially a GoPro for everyone, an easy to use "lifestyle" camera that makes it simple to shoot images and capture video no matter where you are.

The camera features a 16MP sensor and turns on right when you grab it and is ready to go to shoot photos with a press of the button or hold down the button to shoot 1080p, 30fps HD video. It also has a wide angle f/2.8 lens and is IPX7 waterproof and can continue to shoot submerged up to 1 meter. It also has battery life for up to 1,200 shots or 1 hour and 40 minutes of video, expandable microSD storage, and Bluetooth and Wi-Fi built-in.

GoPro HERO & HERO4

GoPro has revealed two new cameras: an entry level GoPro for the rest of us and the high-end, next-generation HERO4 that's capable of shooting 4K video in the now iconic, pocketable form factor.

The entry level HERO may be their bare bones cameras, but it's a powerful little piece of hardware that can shoot 1080p30 and 720p60. You can also get 5MP shots at 5 fps and the go-anywhere design means its ready for anything with its water/dirt/sand-proof design. The HERO4 is their most robust camera yet with 4K30 and 2.7K50 video capability (Black Model), 12MP image captures, built-in WiFi and Bluetooth, and a touch-enabled display (Silver).

Leica X

The Leica X series of cameras gains a new sibling, the X Typ 113, a compact APS-C shooter coupled with a Summilux 23mm f/1.7 lens (35mm equiv). The camera has the fastest lens in the X lineup which should deliver beautiful bokeh and great performance in low light situations.

The large 16MP APS-C sensor should be comparable to some of the best DSLRs in that class and it also has HD-ready video capability with 1080p HD shooting at 30 fps. Of course, no Leica would be complete without its premium fit and finish. The camera's construction features a mix of magnesium and anodized aluminum and is then finished with matching leather trim.

Leica just announced a very special camera at the Photokina show in Germany celebrating the 60th Anniversary of its iconic M Rangefinder camera system. The camera is a Leica M-P with a twist, a big twist. The camera has the latest full-frame 24MP Leica sensor, but takes it back to the basics, giving you access to just the essentials: shutter speed, aperture, focusing, and ISO. It's like shooting on film, but digital.

Limited to 600 examples worldwide, the camera will come with a 35mm f/1.4 Summilux-M lens and both the body and lens are styled by Audi Design. Each camera and lens is individually numbered and matched to each other and will also come with a camera protector which is also created by Audi Design. The M Edition 60 will hit Leica retailers in October.

Panasonic CM1

Though Panasonic has never proven itself to be a competitor in the mobile phone space, their new CM1 might have a leg up on the competition and that's because they've managed to squeeze in a 1" sensor into a slim, smartphone-sized body.

The CM1 boasts a 20MP sensor that is coupled with a Leica f/2.8 lens w/ manual control ring for images that could possibly rival those in the most premium point-and-shoots. It's also an impressive smartphone that is powered by Android 4.4, a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and has 16GBs of storage. No word yet on whether or not this will hit America, but if you're in Germany or France you should be able to get your hands on one before the end of the year.
