Sony's new RX100M3 can't stop leaking, and hot on the heels of the full spec list come images showing the camera and its unusual pop-up viewfinder. The compact 20.1-megapixel shooter manages to squeeze an electronic viewfinder (EVF) into its pocketable body, with a 1.4m dot resolution for those times you don't want to use the 3-inch adjustable display.
A new wearable camera aims to not only document your day but pick out why it was special, with LifeLogger using face, text, and voice detection among other things to effectively offer Google for your real life. Unveiled back at CES in January, and launching a Kickstarter campaign today, the gum-stick scale camera is worn on a headband and shoots 720p 30fps video along with 5-megapixel stills.
Sony has taken a scalpel to the a7, chopping open its full-frame mirrorless camera to show off what's going on inside the unusual shooter. The video - which also shows the results of cutting a Vario-Tessar FE 24-70mm F4 ZA OSS lens in half like a sub - gives an inkling of just how crammed the camera's internals are.
Apple has hired Nokia's "camera expert" and one of the key members of the PureView team, Ari Partinen, presumably to help boost the photography skills of future iPhones. Partinen, who has worked on Nokia's camera technology since the Symbian days of the Nokia N8 will begin at Apple in June.
This week the keepers of the patent applications in the United States have let loose Apple’s "Super-resolution." This bit of technology works with OIS, or Optical Image Stabilization, which will be integrated in a future iPhone - so we suspect - with a new "Super Resolution Mode."
Ushering out the week this Friday evening is a homemade digital photography oddity, the NOT-A-CAMERA. Unlike what its name suggests, the NOT-A-CAMERA is, in fact, a digital camera, only one that hides within a 2D etched wood block that, we're guessing, would get you more than a couple side glances when out and about.
