OnePlus 2 camera gets a thorough pre-testing

OnePlus 2 camera gets a thorough pre-testing

OnePlus has been steadily teasing its upcoming smartphone over social media and the Interwebs but maybe some have grown a bit tired of hearing from them one tidbit after another. For a change, someone else is doing the heavy lifting for OnePlus. Popular YouTube tech personality Marques Brownlee, more popularly known as MKHBD has been "given" a OnePlus 2 to test out the camera for himself. Of course, he's forbidden from leaking out any other detail, but by now, very little is left to the imagination anyway.

PENTAX K-3 II and Nikon D750 service advisories issued

PENTAX K-3 II and Nikon D750 service advisories issued

In April, Ricoh introduced its Pentax K-3 II DSLR camera, and now a couple months later it is issuing a service advisory: some owners may experience issues with the camera failing to shut off even when toggled to "OFF". That presents some obvious issues, but appears to be fairly limited in scope. The camera company has detailed which owners may be affected, and will proceed with repairs if necessary. In addition, Nikon has issued an advisory regarding a shutter problem with some of its D750 cameras.

Lytro releases major update to ILLUM light field camera suite

Lytro releases major update to ILLUM light field camera suite

It's been more than a year since Lytro launched its ILLUM camera, an innovative and, at the same time, somewhat contentious digital camera that seemingly made photographs jump to life thanks to the magic of light field photography. Since then, some smartphones have claimed some, or at least one, of those features, namely, the ability to change focus after the fact. The ILLUM, however, still retains an edge and, to keep up with the times, Lytro has announced its first major update that adds new viewing and editing powers to both the camera and to its desktop software.

What you need to know about GoPro’s HERO4 Session

What you need to know about GoPro’s HERO4 Session

GoPro HERO4 Session launches in tiny form factor with drawbacks to match. What you're going to want to know about the GoPro HERO4 Session is what it does and what it doesn't do - because though it has the GoPro name attached, it's not going to be bringing you the same abilities as you're used do with a full-sized GoPro HERO. This device is more akin to the new Polaroid Cube+, complete with one form factor you'd easily mistake for the other. This one's not quite as cute.

Xiaomi leak hints at smartphone with rear dual cameras

Xiaomi leak hints at smartphone with rear dual cameras

Rumor has had it for a while that Apple is looking to introduce a dual camera setup with an upcoming iPhone model, and according to a source Xiaomi might be planning the same. An image has cropped up showing a Mi handset with two cameras on the rear, each near the other and positioned in the upper right corner. The idea behind dual-camera tech is that with it a smartphone's photography capabilities increases, producing photos that have a quality eclipsing present-day mobile photos.

GoPro HERO4 Session slims action cam but loses 4K

GoPro HERO4 Session slims action cam but loses 4K

GoPro may have updated its action cameras recording capabilities over the years, but it's taken the arrival of the new GoPro HERO4 Session to finally slim things down. 50-percent smaller and 40-percent lighter than GoPro's existing HERO4 Black and Silver cameras, the HERO4 Session can shoot up to 1080p60 video or 8-megapixel stills and is backward-compatible with existing mounts. However, what you won't need is a case, since the Session is waterproof by design.

Netatmo Welcome Review – Nest Cam’s face-recognizing rival

Netatmo Welcome Review – Nest Cam’s face-recognizing rival

If a smart home is truly smart, it should know who’s inside it. That’s the argument Netatmo makes with its new Welcome camera, promising Dropcam-style streaming video but combined with facial-recognition. At $199 it matches Nest Cam’s sticker, but without the need to cough up for the cloud if you want to look back through captured footage, and Netatmo says its person-spotting skills should cut the number of false-alarms down, too. I put on my most welcoming expression to see if the learning camera would find me memorable.

iPhone 6s camera details leaked: 240fps slow motion

iPhone 6s camera details leaked: 240fps slow motion

Apple's iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus camera array documents leak from what appears to be their manufacturing plant company, Foxconn. These documents suggest that the next iPhone's camera array will allow the next iPhones to once again reign supreme over the competition. This is particularly important this generation as both LG and Samsung inch ever closer to overtaking the camera crown in the smartphone business. Several reviewers suggest that the companies have already out-done Apple with their own cameras aboard the Galaxy S6 and the LG G4.

Sony Xperia Z3+ camera might be its own saving grace

Sony Xperia Z3+ camera might be its own saving grace

Sony may have had a misstep with the Xperia Z4/Xperia Z3+ when it came to the choice of a Snapdragon 810 processor, but it is almost inconceivable that it would mess up the camera sensor, one of the key businesses of the company. Sony might have just proven it still got chops in that field. Digital photography benchmarking site DxOMark has just published their report on the latest Sony "flagship" and, as expected, it fares fairly well. Though not enough to become the new king of the hill.

Olympus Air A01 first-impressions: Modular Micro 4/3

Olympus Air A01 first-impressions: Modular Micro 4/3

You’d be forgiven if, after taking a quick glance at Olympus' new Air A01 doohickey, you dismissed it as a lens of some sort. In fact it’s more, much more. Think of the Air A01 as a Micro Four Thirds or Micro 4/3 camera minus the lens and display: ultra portable, allowing you to place or mount it anywhere your creativity takes you, and paired up wirelessly with an iOS or Android device. While add-on cameras are something we’ve already seen from Sony, Kodak, and others, Olympus’ decision to go for interchangeable lenses sets the Air A01 apart; read on for my first impressions.

Jaunt Neo VR camera promises pro-quality 360 video

Jaunt Neo VR camera promises pro-quality 360 video

360-degree video may be the future of immersive entertainment but first you need the camera to record it on, and that's what Jaunt is promising with Neo. The fifth-generation of the virtual reality studio's multi-camera rig, and the culmination of two and a half years of development and testing, Neo resembles a flying saucer studded with lenses, and is intended to capture not only what's going on around the scene, but above and below it, too.
