ShutterBOT transforms Android devices into a DSLR remote

Many have forsaken their digital cameras in favor of the camera on their smartphone, but the exception is largely the professional and dedicated hobbyists among us. Most DSLR cameras can be used with a remote, which often has to be picked up separately from the camera itself. To avoid that -- or handle those times you forget to pack the remote with your gear -- comes a new app called ShutterBOT available to Android users. With ShutterBOT, any Android smartphone or tablet can be turned into a DSLR remote.

Homeboy WiFi camera cuts power cord with 3 month battery

WiFi cameras like Dropcam aren't new, but while baking in wireless connectivity has helped cut one cord, they've always needed to be plugged into a power supply. Now, Homeboy claims to have severed that second tether, with its eponymous camera running on batteries and promising around three months of use from a single charge. That makes positioning all the easier, and Homeboy has taken advantage of that with a magnetic base that means the camera can be pointed in any direction or even hung upside-down from the ceiling.

Leica X Edition Moncler honors brand with French flag design

Yesterday Leica, Moncler, and Fabien Baron jointly unveiled a limited edition camera called the Leica X Edition Moncler. The camera is identical to the regular Leica X model, but brings with it a special design that Leica brags gives it an "unmistakable appeal". Mostly notable are the blue, white, and red color bands spanning across the camera -- the colors of the French flag -- that the maker says is in honor of Moncler's French origins. As with any limited edition run, only a small number of the model will be produced.

HTC takes on GoPro: is their cam RE-ally worth it?

HTC takes on GoPro: is their cam RE-ally worth it?

The HTC RE camera is out, and marketed as a GoPro for the rest of us. Can it really topple the dominant GoPro platform, with all its bells and whistles? Both have quite a bit going for them, but the RE has one small thing that is keeping many early pundits at bay. If HTC is really aiming for the GoPro, they may want to handle the pricing a bit. A comparable GoPro can actually be had for a lower price.

HTC RE hands-on: WiFi action camera or pointless oddity?

HTC RE hands-on: WiFi action camera or pointless oddity?

Of all the things you'd think could save HTC's fortunes, an action camera which looks like a tiny submarine periscope probably isn't the first thing to jump to mind, but the company's hopes are high for the HTC RE. The stubby WiFi-enabled camera borrows ideas both from smartphone photography and more specialist shooters like GoPro, with a 16-megapixel sensor, Full HD video recording, and automatic clip curation using HTC Zoe. Most curious of all, it's not just for HTC's own phones: the RE will work with Android devices and iPhones in general. Read on for some first impressions.
