DJI Osmo handheld stabilized 4K camera unveiled

DJI Osmo handheld stabilized 4K camera unveiled

DJI has introduced a new handheld stabilized camera — or, perhaps more accurately put, a handheld stabilizer that has a camera built into it. The stabilization comes by way of a three axis gimbal, which keeps the video from being shaky, one of the biggest problems caused by handheld cameras. The device has some extra features on top of that, namely a modular format that allows Osmo to work with some of DJI’s other products.

iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus Review

iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus Review

If you listen to the cynics, the "s" in Apple's iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus stands for "same-old". The tick-tock upgrade cycle of the best-selling smartphone has led many to expect revolution one year and then mere evolution the next. Turns out, though, Darwin himself would be impressed by what Apple has achieved with its flagship iPhones in 2015.

Sony on Xperia Z5 Premium: not much 4K content anyway

Sony on Xperia Z5 Premium: not much 4K content anyway

Despite the practically same old design, Sony might have finally hit some of the right notes with the Xperia Z5, especially after DxOMark crowned it king of the mobile photography hill. The Xperia Z5 Premium, on the other hand, despite boasting the world's first 4K smartphone display, is proving to be a harder sell. After being discovered to be using only 1080p for most of its operations, something it conveniently failed to mention at first, Sony is now trying to come clean about the how 4K is really being used on the high-end smartphone.

The Roku 3 made its debut bake in 2013, and while it's still a decent choice today, the draw of 4K video support is starting to attract viewers.

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium uses 4K only in media, 1080p elsewhere

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium uses 4K only in media, 1080p elsewhere

Sony might have struck gold when it announced the Xperia Z5 Premium, the world's first ever 4K smartphone, which also makes it the world's smallest 4K display, However, that adage about not judging books by covers might very well apply to screen resolutions as well. While the manufacturing feat of fitting a 4K display inside a 5.5 screen space is definitely laudable, its benefits apparently aren't as much. Sony has just confirmed that the smartphone only uses that 4K resolution when viewing images and videos.

Sony Alpha 7s II arrives with 4K video, ultra-high ISO

Sony has just announced its latest camera, the Alpha A7s II. As a follow-up to the original Alpha A7s, the new full-frame mirrorless shooter maintains the same 409,600 ISO setting, but adds support for internal 4K video recording. The first model relied on an external recorder for 4K, making it the camera's biggest weakness. Those who passed on the original A7s may find themselves tempted to upgrade, as the new model includes several other refinements in addition to better video features.
