E1: the smallest micro 4/3 interchangeable lens 4K camera

Smartphones have somewhat put digital cameras on notice, but a new shooter might be turning the tables on mobiles. No, it isn't something as complex as the Panasonic LUMIX CM1 camera smarpthone/smartphone camera. Instead, this one bridges the divide between a handy and portable GoPro and a professional camera monstrosity. Z Camera's E1 is laying claim to the title of a the world's smallest micro four-thirds Ultra HD 4K digital camera, one that can be used with popular interchangeable lenses like those from Panasonic and Olympus.

Xiaomi’s smart Mi TV 2S is almost ridiculously thin

It seems that the "thinnest" craze from smartphones have now infected smart TVs. Trying to make display panels seemingly disappear into our living room walls, manufacturers have started to squeeze their TVs to almost insane sizes. The latest to do so is Xiaomi, who has just outed its Mi TV 2S, barely half a year since it launched the Mi TV 2. This latest model crams a 4K resolution display, an Android-based MIUI TV OS, and Xiaomi's own sound system into a 9.9 mm frame.

Samsung JS7000 Smart 4K TV tries not to break your wallet

Samsung JS7000 Smart 4K TV tries not to break your wallet

In addition to curved panels, TV makers are vigorously pushing the idea of Smart TVs to consumers, powered by platforms that turn otherwise single purpose displays into a one stop shop for all your entertainment needs. Usually coming with 4K UHD resolutions, these modern TVs are sadly barely within reach because of their often prohibitive prices. Samsung is aiming to change that with the JS7000. Dubbing it as a Smart UHD TV for the masses, it offers everything you'd see in higher end models, but with a lower price tag. And without the curves.

Philips brings out its own Quantum Dot 4K TV

Philips brings out its own Quantum Dot 4K TV

With TV manufacturer's push for 4K resolutions or curved screens, you probably won't hear much marketing speak about Quantum Dot displays. And yet some strongly hold that this is the future as far as color accuracy is concerned. That is, if they get the green light from environmental agencies. For now, however, Quantum Dot displays, especially TVs, are a rarity despite their promise of better splashes of color. This makes Philips' new 55-inch 55PUF6850/T3 4K TV, with QD Vision's Color IQ Quantum Dot technology, one of a kind.

4K 21.5-inch iMac revealed in El Capitan Beta build

Inside the newest build of OS X El Capitan comes mention of Apple's newest desktop device, one with a 21.5-inch 4K display. While we can't be 100% certain this is a display aimed at a new iMac, Apple's desktop and laptop lineup do leave room right this moment for just such a device. This would make way for the current 21.5-inch iMac to be retired while a new version with 4096 x 2304 pixels to come through. This device will likely be revealed by Apple within the next couple of months.

Samsung NX mini 2 leaked to bring 4K to mirrorless compact

It's been well over a year since Samsung brought the NX mini to light, a petite member of its mirrorless NX camera family. So it is no surprise to hear word that a successor is already close to being revealed. Named the NX mini 2, because what else would it be called, this mirrorless compact presents somewhat of a mixed bag, removing some features in exchange for new ones. The biggest draw for this mini camera, however, will be its ability to shoot 4K videos in such a small size.

Sony puts a price tag on Ultra Thin, Ultra HD Android TVs

Hitbox to livestream games at 4K res, 60fps

Hitbox to livestream games at 4K res, 60fps

Amazon and Twitch will probably start to feel the heat real soon. In addition to Google's YouTube encroaching on its turf with YouTube Gaming later in summer, it might feel a bit of peer pressure from a smaller rival. Hitbox, a startup that has been in business for quite some time now, has revealed a rather ambitious undertaking. It will soon allow and support streaming live using 4K resolution and 60 frames per second, more than either YouTube or Twitch allows, at least at the moment.
