iCamPRO home security “robot” is an all-seeing eye

Amaryllo has introduced its iCamPro FHD, something it says is the first home security robot available. The small round unit features an integrated camera that keeps tabs on one's home or office, monitoring movement, sounds, and more to detect if an intruder is present. The related app is used to communicate with the home owner with picture alerts and more. Last month, the device was bestowed with a 2015 CES Best of Innovations award, and if all goes as planned it'll hit the market next year.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs Note Edge camera

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs Note Edge camera

When we first saw the Galaxy Note 4 at a Samsung conference earlier this year, Samsung also showed us the Galaxy Note Edge. At that time, it wasn't entirely apparent - they're said to come with the same cameras. Since then, we've put them to the test. Some devices perform VERY different from one another even though they're supposed to have the same hardware - can Samsung stay true to its word here?

Huawei’s Honor 6 photo samples are stunning

Huawei’s Honor 6 is now available in China, and aside from its very decent spec sheet, there’s one interesting little wrinkle to the Honor 6 we couldn’t quite wrap our heads around. In discussing the device yesterday, it seemed there was a dual-camera setup around back. A duo of 8-megapixel cameras was said to offer variable aperture for photos. That’s a big proclamation, and something we’ve seen with some degree of success before from HTC, but is it the real deal? Newly release camera samples indicate it is.

LA to be first city to equip all cops with body cameras

The event surrounding Ferguson and similar cases have led citizens to be more aware, wary, and even more critical of the use of police power in the enforcement of the law. In order to protect not only citizens but law enforcers as well, Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti announced a plan to equip LAPD officers with body cameras. These cameras will provide the evidence that might be needed in confrontations between police officers and the public and to prevent, or at least deter, tragedies like Ferguson from happening again.

Personal drones have opened up digital photography to a new breed of users and uses. Naturally, camera makers want in on the new and still hot market that is practically dominated by the likes of GoPro. But while Olympus isn't exactly going out to build a drone of its own, it is trying to come up with the next best thing. It's Open Platform Camera or OPC aims to create a "lens-camera drone", that is, a lens mount that can be equipped with a rotor.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s “In a City” film arrives with NX1 footage

In late October, Samsung tapped Joseph Gordon-Levitt and his production company HitRECord to film a short movie using its NX1 camera.

Polaroid Socialmatic camera is now up for pre-order

Consumers haven't entirely abandoned printed photographs, even if Instagram and similar services are now the preferred way to share and view images.

We've seen the Polaroid Socialmatic camera before, and now there is finally a launch date to which we can look forward: January.

Researchers create 100 billion fps 2D camera

Researchers create 100 billion fps 2D camera

Researchers have created a camera capable of imaging pulses of light. Using a technology called Compressed Ultrafast Photography, Washington University in St. Louis researchers have created a 2D receive-only camera capable of taking images at up to 100 billion frames-per-second -- something that far eclipses the 10 million or so frames-per-second presently available receive-only cameras are capable of. The researchers hope the camera will lead to new scientific discoveries, with the study's leader Lihong Wang saying, "For the first time, humans can see light pulses on the fly."

Obama calls for 50,000 police body cameras

President Obama has called for the use of body cameras by police officers across the nation, doing so with a request for $263m in funding. This funding will go towards 50,000 body cameras, as well as improvements to law enforcement training. The announcement follows the tragedy and protests that have rocked Ferguson, Missouri and other regions in recent time, though the issue itself has been brewing for much longer. "This is not a problem just of Ferguson, Missouri," said President Obama. "This is a national problem. But it's a solvable problem."
