The elusive Samsung Gear 360 camera will be made available for purchase in the U.S. at Lollapalooza, marking the latest - and still very limited -- way buyers have been given to get their hands on the model. Only a limited number of the Gear 360 units will be on hand, and they’ll be offered for $350 USD, the same price we saw the last time some models went up for sale. Though the Gear 360 has already been officially launched in the U.S., it has only thus far been available to purchase at last month’s VidCon in California.
Huawei is quite proud of its Huawei P9 flagship. Proud enough to hire high profile actors Henry Cavill and Scarlett Johansson to, just for a few minutes, root for the smartphone. Of course, the highlight of the device is it camera. Or cameras rather, one in full color and one in monochrome, certified by famed German camera maker Leica. Fortunately for Huawei, its investment paid off. At least that's what DxOMark is showing with its side by side comparison of the Huawei P9 and its predecessor, the P8, demonstrating how far the Chinese OEM has come in taking digital photography seriously.
Pet owners who are forced to leave their furry pals at home alone all day might want a way to keep an eye on them so they know that their pet is ok and happy. A pair of devices that let you keep watch on your pet remotely have hit Kickstarter called the Petcube Bites and Petcube Play. The standard Petcube Play is a camera that allwos you to play with your pet from afar. Users can play with pets by dragging or taping a finger on the Petcube app running on your smartphone.
Cameras have become a critical aspect of smartphones for the past year or so, to the point that now almost every new flagship is waiting in line for a DxOMark verdict. While definitely not the only game in town, the name has become synonymous with digital camera benchmarks. Which is why Lenovo, Moto, and Verizon should count themselves fortunate that the site has just given the Moto Z Force Droid the second highest score so far, second only to the HTC 10 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and surpassing any of Apple's iPhones.
If you feel like you've heard about the newly announced LG Action Cam LTE before, it's probably because you have. The company first took the wraps off its camera back in May, and today it has re-introduced it to coincide with the device's launch in South Korea.

Nico360 bills itself as the world's smallest 360-degree camera and the device is certainly very small. It measures in at 46mm x 46mm x 28mm and despite its small size; it packs in some very appealing features. Perhaps the biggest of those features is the ability to live stream your 360-degree videos. The body of the camera is waterproof meaning no case is needed when using it in or around water.
Drone maker DJI has been in the news quite a bit recently for its camera technology, announcing just a couple of days ago that it would be teaming up with Hasselblad to offer drone and camera bundles for aerial photography. Today the company is at it again, this time introducing us to its new Zenmuse Z3. DJI says this is its first integrated aerial zoom camera, offering operators up to a 7x zoom and compatibility with a few of DJI's more popular drones.
I've been looking for a new house to rent and I can tell you that it is very annoying when I want to hit Street View to see the neighborhood only to find that Google hasn’t cruised by and recorded the area yet. This must be the same irritation that drove Durita Dahl Andreassen and other resident's of a small, remote archipelago called the Faroe Islands in the North Atlantic Ocean to invent Sheep View 360.
Nest is taking its intelligent cameras outside with the launch of the Nest Cam Outdoor, a weatherproof version of its streaming security system that makes ease of use and simplicity of installation its twin priorities.

Xiaomi has just officially brought another one of its products to the US market and, no, it's not a smartphone. Announced last May is an upgraded Yi action cam that, among other things, stepped up the video recording game with the capability to shoot 4K quality at 30 fps rates, a rare feat in the action camera market. Now Xiaomi's Yi sub-brand is making that camera widely available in the US, in time for Amazon Prime Day on July 12, and slapping on a relatively affordable $250 price tag.
