Earlier this month we saw the Belkin LiveAction device cross the FCC for the approvals it needs to come to market. Belkin has now gone official with the LiveAction gear for the iPhone camera. The LiveAction Camera Grip is a contoured device with a soft touch grip to make shooting photos with the iPhone 4S easier.
Let's be real here: the Samsung Galaxy Player is the first real competition for the iPod Touch since its inception, and although smartphones have far surpassed the specifications of either device, they're here to battle one another, not anything else. What you've got here is a device, on the Samsung side, that's not quite as large as the Galaxy Note, a device that's still got a data connection, and isn't nearly as small as the iPod Touch, which only comes in one size - that being a 3.5-inch display. So what will we compare? Sound quality? Pixel density? How about the ability to put the device in your pocket?
Apple's next-gen iPod touch will be broadly identical to the existing model, according to the latest analyst tittle-tattle, with the company merely introducing a white variant of the current PMP. Ming-Chi Kuo claims his supply chain sources confirm the pale all-touch iPod, Apple Insider reports, though the same analyst has also thrown cold water over recent iPhone 5 excitement. He reckons that, while leaks and rumors have tipped a considerable upgrade for the fifth-gen handset, in actual fact there's no evidence of such a departure in the pipeline, MacRumors reports. Instead, Kuo predicts, something a whole lot more mundane is in the offing.
Kodak will be releasing a special Burton edition of their rugged PLAYSPORT Zx5 pocket video camera designed for people that love snow. It's touted as being touch enough to meet the demands of even the most dedicated snow boarders, capturing all the best moments of the day on the slopes in even the harshest winter weather conditions.
When I was a kid, everyone used the Polaroid instant camera. The sound of those things spitting out a photo is ingrained in my memory. Today we all use digital photos and that is ideal in most instances. However, there are times when you want a photo right then that you can share. In this instance, you may be wishing for that old school Polaroid camera. Fujifilm has announced a new camera in Canada that is called the Instax Mini 50S.
There are certain statistics every good camera or camera-toting device group pays attention to, one of the more unassumingly important set of these being on Flickr's own most popular cameras page. This page is an extremely simplistic look at which devices are attached to photos the most often in the Flickr community, graphs broken down into Point & Shoot, Cameraphones, and the cross-breed Most Popular Cameras overall over the past year of Flickr action. What we're seeing today is that longstanding king of Flicker photos, the Nikon D90, has been ousted and replaced by the rapidly growing iPhone.
During this week's WWDC 2011 keynote, Apple's iOS 5 was unveiled along with the release of a beta version and SDK for developers. And after scrutinizing the new iOS SDK, developers have discovered that the media framework strings have added a new 1080p video export preset. This means that iOS 5 devices will support the recording, playback, and export of 1080p video.
I have taken photos with my iPhone 4 a bunch of times and generally, the photos aren’t that great. They turn out blurry or too dark in my hands more often than not. The iShuttr might help that blurry business, but it will certainly help my pics to not be too dark thanks to the larger flash that case adds to the iPhone. The case promises to turn your iPhone into a real point and shoot camera.
OmniVision has long been supplying Apple's camera sensors, including the 5-megapixel CMOS camera sensor in the current iPhone 4. They've also announced several monster sensors along the way including a 10-megapixel one earlier this year and more recently a 12-megapixel beast. Today, the company announced a brand new best-in-class 5-megapixel sensor that's much thinner than previous sensors and is designed to allow for much slimmer devices.
Earlier this week, images purported to be the next-gen iPod nano surfaced revealing the addition of a small camera and the removal of the built-in clip. Today, a patent application published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office entitled "Environment Sensitive Display Tags" was discovered revealing not only a new camera but also added support for apps and games.
