Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch leaks with health focus

Samsung's Galaxy Gear smartwatch has apparently leaked, just days ahead of the wearable's expected debut at Samsung's pre-IFA September 4 event. The bulky touchscreen smartwatch was unofficially shown off in prototype form to VentureBeat, along with details from an internal marketing video which describe the onboard WiFi and Bluetooth, roughly 3-inch OLED display, and a 4-megapixel camera integrated into the strap. Samsung apparently expects wearers to use that camera as a food-logging tool, taking snapshots of meals and then tagging them with type so as to build up a diet diary for heath purposes.

Beyond Megapixels: Mobile cameras rethink the numbers game

Beyond Megapixels: Mobile cameras rethink the numbers game

Once upon a time, mobile megapixels were the key. In fact, not so many years ago, many questioned whether there was any value whatsoever in having a camera built into your phone. Convergence for its own sake is undeniably a problem in today's crossover-soaked market, but it's now hard to argue that photography and the modern smartphone aren't a compelling match. As the technology - and the rivalry - has increased, though, so the simple megapixel has lost some of its clarity, and with the smartphone stakes never higher, there's a revolution of sorts underway to reframe mobile imagery.

Sony Alpha A3000 ILCE-3000 E-Mount camera unveiled

With the Sony Alpha 3000, Sony is targeting the entry-level user wishing to carry with them the power of a professional photographer. Sony is aiming to reach a balance between the "emotional needs and wants" of the user, needs and wants generally taken care of in both compact system cameras and a full-sized DSLR-style cameras - but not in a single package.
