Ricoh Theta m15 360-degree camera coming November 14

Ricoh Theta m15 360-degree camera coming November 14

If you think HTC's RE camera has a strange shape, then you might have have not been aware of Ricoh's Theta camera. Granted, it doesn't have that periscope-like form, but it still comes in that handy tubular design. But in the case of the Theta, that has a purpose, and a rather niche one at that.

Mylio pro photo-handling software launches tomorrow for iOS, OS X

Thanks to smartphones, most of us have a lot of pictures floating around -- they're usually scattered all over the place, maybe being saved to a central cloud account for those who took the time to set one up. Sorting through and otherwise keeping track of all these images can be difficult, but for the photographers among us who have thousands or hundreds of thousands of images, organization becomes an entirely different kind of beast. That's where professional-level photo handling software comes in, not the least of which is Mylio, which will be arriving for Apple users tomorrow.

PENTAX K-S1 Sweets Collection adds rainbow of colors

The Pentax K-S1 camera Ricoh introduced in late August will be arriving again in a new collection called the Sweets Collection.

There are a total of three new colors (in addition to the original camera that launched), with Ricoh deciding to give them all saccharine sweet names: Strawberry Cake (red/pinkish), Blue Cream Soda, and Lime Pie.

Leica X Edition Moncler honors brand with French flag design

Yesterday Leica, Moncler, and Fabien Baron jointly unveiled a limited edition camera called the Leica X Edition Moncler. The camera is identical to the regular Leica X model, but brings with it a special design that Leica brags gives it an "unmistakable appeal". Mostly notable are the blue, white, and red color bands spanning across the camera -- the colors of the French flag -- that the maker says is in honor of Moncler's French origins. As with any limited edition run, only a small number of the model will be produced.

HTC One M8 EYE shows up in HTC’s Chinese eshop page

HTC has just recently regaled the tech world with its new hobby, digital imaging and photography. While we did expect and indeed saw the teased HTC RE camera and leaked HTC Desire EYE, one thing that was mysteriously left out of the stage was another leaked smartphone. Now that device, the HTC One M8 EYE, is now official, but HTC strangely only launched it silently over its Chinese website. Perhaps its because, compared to the Desire EYE, the One M8 EYE is a less sensational smartphone.

HTC takes on GoPro: is their cam RE-ally worth it?

HTC takes on GoPro: is their cam RE-ally worth it?

The HTC RE camera is out, and marketed as a GoPro for the rest of us. Can it really topple the dominant GoPro platform, with all its bells and whistles? Both have quite a bit going for them, but the RE has one small thing that is keeping many early pundits at bay. If HTC is really aiming for the GoPro, they may want to handle the pricing a bit. A comparable GoPro can actually be had for a lower price.
