Sony a7R II includes full frame 42MP sensor, lauches in August

Camera makers have been busy introducing new models today, and among them is Sony, which has already taken the wraps off a couple models. Newest among it all is the maker’s Sony Alpha 7R II, a mirrorless offering featuring a full-frame BSI CMOS sensor and a 42.4 megapixel resolution. Says Sony, this is the first ever back-illuminated Exmor R full-frame CMOS sensor, and it boasts a very high ISO of 102,400. In addition, Sony promises the auto focus is faster than the previous a7R, with 399 focal plane phase detection auto focus points.

Leica has announced its new Leica Q camera, a digital shooter that is hailed as offering the fastest lens in its class. The new Q is a hybrid of sorts, sporting a compact design and easy to use interface alongside the image quality you get with the maker’s “M” lineup, including a full-frame sensor and optical image stabilization. Joining this is a new feature called “digital frame selector”, which allows the photographer to display the focal lengths (35 and 50mm) by pressing a button. The camera was made in Germany.

The Sony RX100 MK4 has been announced by sony with 40x super slow motion video capture at up to 960 frames per second.

Flickr upsets users by (apparently) boosting compression

Flickr upsets users by (apparently) boosting compression

Some users of Yahoo's photo sharing and hosting website Flickr have taken to the Internet with upset comments, expressing issues with the quality of their lesser-sized photos. Namely, the sized-down non-original photos appear to have more compression artifacts than they used to, suggesting that Flickr has made some silent tweak that cuts down on data numbers while (very slightly) lessening the visual quality of many images. Flickr has issued a statement on the matter, though it dances around actually confirming whether a change has happened.

4GEE Action Cam offers livestreaming over 4G

4GEE Action Cam offers livestreaming over 4G

EE, a large British communications company, has introduced its own competitor to GoPro’s HERO4 action camera — it is called the 4GEE Action Cam, and it kicks off what will be a bigger line up of similarly branded products to be introduced later on in 2015. The 4GEE Action Cam has a design more akin to a typical compact camera rather than most action camera designs. There is a big catch, though. The camera is able to broadcast footage online, but doing so will require a 4G data subscription with EE, limiting it to a smaller range of users than the HERO4, Sony Action Cam, and other competing models.

Gekkopod is a flexible, wrappable camera and phone tripod

Tripods are becoming increasingly flexible, and Gekkopod is perhaps the best example of that. The Gekkopod tripod can hold a smartphone and a regular camera (though not at the same time) and be positioned just about anywhere the user would like — wrapped around the end of a long stick to be used as a selfie stick, around a tree branch to record some event, or on a flat but angular surface. The idea is that you can use the Gekkopod in a variety of situations that would otherwise necessitate many mounting accessories.

Ricoh GR II camera (allegedly) appears in leaked pic

The next version of the Ricoh GR camera, the aptly named Ricoh GR II, has surfaced ahead of its official launch. An alleged picture of the camera has surfaced in a leak, and if it is the real deal it seems the maker will be offering a second model that looks very similar the first iteration (though there are some subtle differences). It is a PR image, and so assuming it is real, its existence likely points towards a nearing official announcement.
