GoPro camera patent a dead ringer for the Polaroid Cube

Wait a second, those of you familiar with the Polaroid Cube might be saying, isn't that the miniature shooter we know so well? Not really, says GoPro, this is a new camera with new abilities - it just... maybe looks... similar. Not similar enough to warrant a mass breakdown, of course - and probably not similar enough to sue. But similar enough that we're going to give a long hard look and play with this device if and when it's released to the mass market.

LG G4 benchmarks hint at big camera upgrade

After wisely side-stepping the Mobile World Congress hype, LG is readying their latest flagship for release. Reportedly set for a mid-April announcement, LG’s handset has —- unlike it’s Samsung and HTC brethren — been shrouded in mystery. We’ve heard relatively little about it, but that’s changing. Today, we get our first inkling at what might make the newest from LG one to have. If it’s accurate of the final hardware build (and it should be, at this point), the new LG G4 will be big and bold, but not quite cutting edge.

Artist hacks together Game Boy and camera into 8-bit printer

Nintendo has a history of releasing obscure, rarely used peripherals for its video game consoles and portables. In this instance, I'm talking specifically about the Game Boy Camera and Game Boy Printer, two accessories for Nintendo's original 8-bit handheld that, well, let you take small, lo-fi pictures and print them with the same quality as a cash register receipt. Well, a Russian artist must've used these as inspiration, because he's hacked together what basically amounts to be a Game Boy-photo-gun-printer.

Apple patents could give next iPhones a superior camera

Apple patents could give next iPhones a superior camera

DxOMark has crowned the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus as the kinds of the smartphone camera hill, but it would be quite out of character for Apple if it were to rest on its laurels. Apple has advertised to no small extent the power that can be found in your pocket, especially when it comes to the camera but we're still a long way from matching the capabilities of dedicated digital cameras. Apple, however, might have a solution, based on two patents that could give the next iPhone better image quality, improved OIS, and real zoom lenses.

Olympus Stylus SH-2 packs 24x zoom, OIS and WiFi

Olympus has outed a new retro-styled camera, the Stylus SH-2, a compact point-and-shoot that still squeezes in a 24x optical zoom, image stabilization, and RAW support. Offered with its aluminum alloy body in either silver or black, the SH-2 has a 16-megapixel sensor and records 1080/60p video, though is also capable of turning its metaphorical hand to 120fps and 240fps slow motion. Unlike many point-and-shoots, meanwhile, in addition to spitting out JPEGs the latest Stylus can deliver RAW format frames as well.
