The Silicon Valley company, which sells rugged cameras and lots of accessories to adventurous types, announces plans to go public.
Those using Canon's lower-end cinema camera can soon spend $500 for a sensor that improves autofocus performance. The dual-pixel technology debuted this year on Canon's 70D SLR.
BASE jumpers, snorkelers, and skate punks rejoice: The new models bring smaller size, better battery life, new video modes, and faster Wi-Fi.
The H.265 video standard, aka HEVC or MPEG-5, squeezes more pixels over a network connection to support new high-resolution 4K TVs. Broadcom's chip supports both and is due to arrive in volume next year.
Videographers will get better color from Canon's high-end SLR with an update coming in 2013. Also: an autofocus improvement for supertelephoto fans.

If you want high data transfer speeds (20 megabytes per second) in a 32-gigabyte SD flash memory card--an industry first, Panasonic asserts--prepare to pay up for it.
A standards group completes its work on a compression technology called HEVC, or H.265, which promises to improve resolution, image quality, and color. Google's VP9 is waiting in the wings.
