Leica has built a name for itself in the compact market over the years with a handful of Panasonic rebrands -- these Lumix models come equipped with a matte black housing, Leica lens and that famous red dot, with the inflated price tag to match. With this latest batch of cameras, the company appears to be taking a more respectable approach -- at least with its high-end X2.
Leica is ushering in its 100th birthday with the announcement of a new sleek aluminum camera, the Leica T. With this camera comes a decidedly minimalistic design, as well as an interchangeable-lens setup and a position within the company's product line up that is betwixt the M and S Series'.
This week, we met Canon'sG1 X Mark II. Judging by its nomenclature, we expected a straightforward update to 2012's PowerShot flagship. Instead, this year's model is only likeits predecessorwhen it comes to size -- the camera's specifications and design have been refined significantly.
Olympus has had a run of success with its OM-D series of cameras, not least the E-M5 we reviewed last year , and now there's the new OM-D E-M10 to carry that torch, a model the company claims rivals APS-C DSLRs while being considerably smaller. In fact, at 63.9mm deep and 516g with the new 14-42mm EZ kit lens, the OM-D E-M10 is even smaller than the body alone of Canon's EOS Rebel SL1.
To many photographers -- amateurs and professionals alike -- digital SLRs represent quality. The fact that you can remove the lens and swap it for another is inconsequential to those who never buy a second optic, and it's that segment of the market that Sony's targeting with its Cyber-shot RX10.
Olympus has just revealed its latest digital camera the takes the best of both worlds of its PEN compact design and its relatively new optical 5-axis image stabilization technology. While the camera is loaded with premium features, a lot of it revolves around shooting that perfect movie.
I love a good bowl of cereal. It gives me the opportunity to put my favorite beverage, milk, into it. I also love my digital photography. I’ve been shooting with a Canon 5D Mark III full-frame camera for the last year and a half and I have to tell you, it’s a beauty. Takes shots that are out of this world.
Every year, Manhattan hosts CE Week — the official summertime event of the Consumer Electronics Association - and iLounge sponsors iLounge NYC, a dedicated area for Apple accessory makers. CE Week officially opens to attendees this morning, with exhibitions running through tomorrow afternoon.
Samsung has outed its latest mirrorless camera, the NX3000 SMART Camera, packing a 20.3-megapixel APS-C sensor, WiFi, and NFC into a retro-styled body. The compact NX3000 also supports Samsung's Wink Shot feature, which effectively replaces the self-timer with wink recognition.
Long gone are the days when digital cameras were just for still photographers. In fact, with its GH4, it's easy to argue that Panasonic is putting an even greater emphasis on video capture -- of the 4K variety, in this case. The Lumix GH4, teased as the "next GH" just last month at CES, offers tremendous advantages over its predecessor, the GH3.
Last year, Sony finally reached the end of the alphabet with itsXperia Z. It wasn't just that the company ran out of letters, though: With the Xperia Z, we saw Sony streamline itsscatteredphonestrategy, piping all its attention into a single high-end device. Then, it followed up with theZ1, which brought a massive 20.7-megapixel camera.
Timely is an alarm clock not just for one device, but another, and another! Unlike most alarm apps for Android you can sync Timely to several of your devices, and set the alarm form the device of your choice.
This BiT Busters video features a shoot out between an Aruba access point and a Cisco access point to see how well they compete when adding device after device to both APs. The loser gets shredded. Can you guess who ends up in pieces? This is an interesting video because I keep thinking about what I can do to improve my own home network.
In the past, opting for a ruggedized camera has required some serious sacrifices. Whether that's meantcomically large housingsormediocre performance, you couldn't get a fantastic point-and-shoot camera that you could also safely take on the slopes, the back of a motorcycle or on SCUBA dives. This year's Olympus Stylus Tough is the first such model I've seen that's worthy of your 350 bucks.
The HAV304 took the crown of “world's longest aircraft” with its inaugural flight today. The gargantuan spans a football field and towers just over two stories in height, owing its construction to pure metal. It sacrifices little in being the world's longest, as it still reaches 100 mph, which is triple that of the dwarfish Goodyear blimp.
Seemingly every month new phones are released, each boasting new features that set it apart from the competition. And yet even the most cutting-edge iPhone, the 5s, still comes with a measly 8MP camera. To put things in perspective its rival from Sony, the Xperia Z1 Compact, has a 20.7MP camera. All this variation got the fine folks at PhoneArena.
Sony has revealed its latest Alpha camera, the A6000, a 24.3-megapixel compact DLSR slotting in-between the NEX-5T and the A65 and promising the fastest autofocus in the world. Measuring in at a 120 x 67 x 45 mm and 344g pre-lens, the A6000 has a new Exmor APS HD CMOS running through the same updated BIONZ X engine as in the A7 series, for an ISO range of 100-25600 and an autofocus lock in just 0.06 seconds.
Pro photographers can spend ages setting up lighting for a shoot. That work may quickly go out the window if the subject moves, however, and an assistant won't always be there to help. Thankfully, MIT researchers have devised a clever solution to the problem: meetLitrobot, an aerial lighting drone.
