If you love exotic and esoteric kit, then this was certainly the camera news week for you! In addition to the usual leaks and rumors, we were greeted with a pair of wonderfully unusual bodies. 

The first isn't actually a new one, but a highly specialized body from Canon that has a whopping 4 MILLION ISO – which is so impressive that it was honored with a Hollywood award. The second definitely is new, after a fashion – it's a vintage-bodied instant camera, and no doubt the most unusual camera you'll see in 2020!
