LG G4 Wins Blind Camera Test vs iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6 in low light

LG G4 Wins Blind Camera Test vs iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6 in low light

This past week we ran a Blind Camera Test between the LG G4, the Samsung Galaxy S6, and the iPhone 6 with a number of photos taken in low-lighting environments. We placed photos taken by each smartphone next to one another without the names of their devices attached and asked you, the readers, to vote on which photos looked best. Not which photos looked most color-correct, not which photos were sharpest - though those could have been your criteria if you'd wanted. This was a test of objective desires.

Fujifilm X-T1 IR camera packs infrared in mirrorless form

Fujifilm has rolled out the red carpet for its latest digital camera, the infrared-centric X-T1 IR. This is a variant of its previously released mirrorless X-T1 camera, but for those who enjoy infrared photography, as well as industries that require infrared functionality (e.g., medical and law enforcement). The camera was introduced today, but won’t be available until this upcoming October. We have all the details you need to know ahead of that launch, however, all the way down to its hefty price tag.

Throwable ball camera’s potential realized: coming this September

Throwable ball camera’s potential realized: coming this September

It's been nearly four years since we first reported on the concept for the throwable ball camera - now that vision has become a reality. Our first report on the device now called "Panono" was all the way back in October of 2011 when it was just a dream - it was just "patent pending" back then with a mocked-up ball and a set of sketches that dated back to early 2010. Fast forward to 2015 and the original concept by Jonas Pfeil, Kristian Hildebrand, Carsten Gremzow, Bernd Bickel, and Marc Alexa has come to life.

Blind Camera Test: Galaxy S6 vs iPhone 6 vs LG G4 in low light

Today we're conducting a test which will decide the finest of three of the best-rated smartphone cameras on the market today. We're testing the Apple iPhone 6, the Samsung Galaxy S6, and the LG G4. Today's test will be a blind test, with each photo cropped to the same pre portions as the others in each individual test. Each camera has been set to Auto mode and HDR has been turned off. While the angles at which these photos have been taken are not exact, they're very, very close.

GoFish Cam is an action camera for your fishing pole

GoFish Cam is an action camera for your fishing pole

You can post a picture of your big catch online, but showing the catch as it took place -- that is, from the moment the fish started eyeing your hook -- isn't as simple. Enter GoFish Cam, an action camera of sorts that attaches to your fishing pole and records stabilized footage as you reel in fish. The camera is pill shaped and attached to the fishing line in such a way that the lens points toward the fishing hook, ensuring every moment is recorded.

GoPro to release video-editing mobile app later this summer

GoPro to release video-editing mobile app later this summer

During a recent investors call, GoPro president Tony Bates revealed that the action camera-maker is developing a mobile app that let users quickly and easily edit their footage after it's been shot. Bates added that the app is "in the final phase testing" already, and should be released before the end of the summer. It was clear what platforms the app will hit (though iOS and Android seem likely), but the ability to trim and edit footage almost immediately after shooting will definitely enhance the GoPro experience.

2016 Toyota Tacoma will include a built-in GoPro mount

2016 Toyota Tacoma will include a built-in GoPro mount

GoPro and Toyota have teamed up and as a result the auto maker's mid-size Tacoma pickup truck has a camera mount...one designed to work with GoPro's action cameras. The mounts will come as a standard feature in the 2016 Toyota Tacoma, and mark an industry first. The potential appeal is easy to see: GoPro's cameras are devices one would take on their adventures, and a pickup truck is something one might take off-roading. Pair the two together and the result are some fun, probably muddy video footage.

HERO4 Session teardown cracks GoPro’s latest camera

HERO4 Session teardown cracks GoPro’s latest camera

GoPro recently introduced its new GoPro HERO4 Session, a cube-shaped camera that greatly resembles Polaroid's Cube camera. The Session deviates a fair bit from the other HERO cameras. Aside from being cube-shaped, it features single-button operation and is only a fraction of the regular HERO4's size. Now the folks at iFixit have gotten their hands on the small camera, and they've given us a look inside by busting it open.

PENTAX K-3 II and Nikon D750 service advisories issued

PENTAX K-3 II and Nikon D750 service advisories issued

In April, Ricoh introduced its Pentax K-3 II DSLR camera, and now a couple months later it is issuing a service advisory: some owners may experience issues with the camera failing to shut off even when toggled to "OFF". That presents some obvious issues, but appears to be fairly limited in scope. The camera company has detailed which owners may be affected, and will proceed with repairs if necessary. In addition, Nikon has issued an advisory regarding a shutter problem with some of its D750 cameras.
