Canon EOS 5DS leaked with whopping 50MP sensor

It's been a while since we've last heard from Canon's EOS 5D line, but it seems that the camera maker will be bringing it back with a very big bang. Specs of what is supposedly the the EOS 5DS and 5DS R have been leaked and they show some of the best of the best in digital cameras, which may make it sound too good to be true. But if they do come true, we might be looking at a pair of cameras that have very high sensors and the latest image processors.

Watch a camera shutter and exploding orange in ultra slow motion

Watch a camera shutter and exploding orange in ultra slow motion

Slow motion videos let us look at ordinary things -- water dripping, bugs flying, etc. -- in an entirely new and often fascinating way. All the while, this form of video also provides us with a look at the finer details that happen in the blink of an eye (or faster) that we'd otherwise never get a glimpse of. A camera's shutter is one of those things, snapping at impossibly fast speeds and being little more than a clicking sound to users. On the flip side of things, there's also exploding oranges.

GoPro HERO4 owners will soon have a bit of additional functionality via their tiny action cameras: high-definition slow motion. The functionality will be delivered by a soon-to-arrive firmware update, which will bring 720p-resolution recording at 240fps. Users are still waiting to score such a feature, but at least one GoPro out in the wild has it, and thanks to the owner we can all see what kind of footage is produced.

Dropcam offers free replacement for legacy devices

Hardware reaching their end of life is a natural occurrence, especially in mobile and smart devices that seem to have at the very least only 2 years to live. More often than not, owners are left with no choice but to upgrade, which usually entails cashing out on a new device. That is why Dropcam's new offer is like a breath of fresh air. It will be giving a free hardware replacement to owners of the original Dropcam and Dropcam Echo, even going as far as allowing owners to keep their old units, just as a remembrance.

Oomi Cube wants to make your smart home automated

Oomi Cube wants to make your smart home automated

There's a group out there that hopes to redefine what it means to create a Smart Home. Still here in the Smart Home's infancy, the group behind this brand Oomi hopes to take the definition of Smart Home - "a home equipped with lighting, heating, and electronic devices that can be controlled remotely by a phone or computer," and throw that all in the trash. Or at least make a more automated system of it all. No more of this "smartphone control makes everything super amazing" nonsense.

VSN Mobil V.360 Camera Review

VSN Mobil V.360 Camera Review

The V.360 camera presents a fairly remarkable media-capturing proposition: the ability to capture panoramic (360-degree) videos or photographs with one tap. No stitching, no multiple-shot photography necessary. This system uses a mirror, instead, as well as a 4K/16 megapixel image sensor. You're using a fixed f/3.0 aperture here and you've got the ability to capture up to 6480 x 1080 HD video at 30FPS or up to 7-megapixel photos (that's 6480 x 1080 as well). What we're doing in this initial review is checking image and video quality - we'll be getting more hardcore in the near future.

Seek XR thermal smartphone camera brings optical zoom

Seek XR thermal smartphone camera brings optical zoom

This past September, Seek Thermal introduced its Seek camera for smartphones, which gives the handsets the ability to look at the world around them based on its heat levels. Keeping in step with its biggest competitor, FLIR ONE, Seek has now introduced a new updated thermal camera called the Seek XR, and with it comes a boost in functionality via the inclusion of optical zoom.
