LG G4 Wins Blind Camera Test vs iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6 in low light

LG G4 Wins Blind Camera Test vs iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6 in low light

This past week we ran a Blind Camera Test between the LG G4, the Samsung Galaxy S6, and the iPhone 6 with a number of photos taken in low-lighting environments. We placed photos taken by each smartphone next to one another without the names of their devices attached and asked you, the readers, to vote on which photos looked best. Not which photos looked most color-correct, not which photos were sharpest - though those could have been your criteria if you'd wanted. This was a test of objective desires.

Fujifilm X-T1 IR camera packs infrared in mirrorless form

Fujifilm has rolled out the red carpet for its latest digital camera, the infrared-centric X-T1 IR. This is a variant of its previously released mirrorless X-T1 camera, but for those who enjoy infrared photography, as well as industries that require infrared functionality (e.g., medical and law enforcement). The camera was introduced today, but won’t be available until this upcoming October. We have all the details you need to know ahead of that launch, however, all the way down to its hefty price tag.

Throwable ball camera’s potential realized: coming this September

Throwable ball camera’s potential realized: coming this September

It's been nearly four years since we first reported on the concept for the throwable ball camera - now that vision has become a reality. Our first report on the device now called "Panono" was all the way back in October of 2011 when it was just a dream - it was just "patent pending" back then with a mocked-up ball and a set of sketches that dated back to early 2010. Fast forward to 2015 and the original concept by Jonas Pfeil, Kristian Hildebrand, Carsten Gremzow, Bernd Bickel, and Marc Alexa has come to life.

Blind Camera Test: Galaxy S6 vs iPhone 6 vs LG G4 in low light

Today we're conducting a test which will decide the finest of three of the best-rated smartphone cameras on the market today. We're testing the Apple iPhone 6, the Samsung Galaxy S6, and the LG G4. Today's test will be a blind test, with each photo cropped to the same pre portions as the others in each individual test. Each camera has been set to Auto mode and HDR has been turned off. While the angles at which these photos have been taken are not exact, they're very, very close.

Canon’s ISO 4M multi-purpose camera is going to cost you

Most digital cameras these days boast of ISO levels along the 25,600 and 51,200 range. But have you ever heard of one that reaches 4,000,000?

Samsung’s 1μm-pixel camera sensor to keep phones even thinner

Samsung’s 1μm-pixel camera sensor to keep phones even thinner

Ever wondered why smartphones like the iPhone 6 or the Samsung Galaxy S6 have protruding rear cameras? That's because as thin as smartphones might be getting, the powerful camera sensors in them aren't. This leads to problems in finding ways to stash all of those inside in creative ways, like what Apple might be doing, or, more logically, creating smaller camera sensors that still perform as well as their bigger counterparts. Samsung claims it might have just have the latter solution in its new 1μm-pixel sensor.

Nokia does VR with OZO virtual reality camera ball

Nokia does VR with OZO virtual reality camera ball

So the rumors were true after all. Nokia is indeed getting into the whole virtual reality train, but those expecting an innovative new VR headset might be extremely disappointed. Instead, Nokia has announced OZO, what it claims to be the first commercially available virtual reality camera. More a sphere than a disc or array of cameras, OZO is designed to take both stereoscopic 3D and spatial audio in 8 directions. Nokia plans to beat the competition in the market by going to market in the fourth quarter of this year.

DxOMark ranks the Moto X Style above the iPhone 6

DxOMark ranks the Moto X Style above the iPhone 6

Usually, we have to wait for a few more days after a new smartphone has launched to see any kind of camera benchmark from DxOMark. Surprisingly, the website has come out with one immediately after Motorola announced its new smartphones. In this case, DxOMark took the high end Moto X Style for a spin. Lo and behold, the smartphone was able to grab the second (or third) highest spot in the list, standing just behind the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge (and Galaxy S6) and shoulder to shoulder with the Galaxy Note 4. As a result, this has pushed back the iPhone 6 Plus to fifth place.

GoFish Cam is an action camera for your fishing pole

You can post a picture of your big catch online, but showing the catch as it took place -- that is, from the moment the fish started eyeing your hook -- isn't as simple. Enter GoFish Cam, an action camera of sorts that attaches to your fishing pole and records stabilized footage as you reel in fish. The camera is pill shaped and attached to the fishing line in such a way that the lens points toward the fishing hook, ensuring every moment is recorded.

GoPro to release video-editing mobile app later this summer

GoPro to release video-editing mobile app later this summer

During a recent investors call, GoPro president Tony Bates revealed that the action camera-maker is developing a mobile app that let users quickly and easily edit their footage after it's been shot. Bates added that the app is "in the final phase testing" already, and should be released before the end of the summer. It was clear what platforms the app will hit (though iOS and Android seem likely), but the ability to trim and edit footage almost immediately after shooting will definitely enhance the GoPro experience.

Rhinos outfitted with horn cameras, GPS to fight poaching

Rhinos outfitted with horn cameras, GPS to fight poaching

British nonprofit animal conservation group Protect has come up with a new way to fight poachers, and it involves outfitting rhinos with their own versions of tech wearables. The system relies on three pieces of technology to track and monitor the animals: heart rate monitors under the skin, a GPS transmitter around the neck, and a camera embedded in the horn after a hole is (painlessly) drilled. The technology is called Real-time Anti-Poaching Intelligence Device (RAPID), and is already being tested on threatened rhino populations in South Africa.
