Polaroid Cube Review

Sony A6000 Review

Sony A6000 Review

With unusual cameras like the A7 and A7R, Sony's A6000 ran the risk of being overshadowed. Elevated from the NEX range to sit alongside Sony's full DSLRs with the Alpha prefix, the A6000 builds on the NEX-6 with a new 24.3-megapixel sensor and a flashy autofocus system the company claims is a record-setter.

Narrative Clip Review – A wearable camera with context

Can you remember what you were doing last week? How about last month, or a year ago?

Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom Review

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is a smartphone with a rather sizable camera on its back. While you'll find this machine appearing to want o take the place of the Samsung Galaxy Camera, we've found it to be attempting to carve out a different category entirely.

Looxcie HD Explore Review

It's time to have a close-up look at the newest model wearable camera ready for 1080p recording, direct-to-Facebook live streaming, and the ability to connect to your smartphone for remote control - the Looxcie HD. This machine builds on the abilities of the past with the original Looxcie Bluetooth video camera that we reviewed back in April of 2011.

What we're seeing here is a premium experience at a relatively low price considering the quality of the output, that's for certain.

Dropcam HD Review
