olloclip Macro 3-in-1 clip-on iPhone lens hands-on

Olloclip has been busy empowering the iPhone's camera for a while now. This past January we got our hands on its iPhone 5 lens clip, which enabled one to shoot in fish eye, wide-angle, and macro. Fast-forward nearly a year, and we've been testing olloclip's latest offering: the Macro 3-in-1 clip-on lens for the iPhone. We've got a gallery and video for you in our SlashGear hands-on after the jump.

Sony QX Lens Cameras work without smartphone aid

Sony QX Lens Cameras work without smartphone aid

Though we've seen the Sony "Lens Camera" devices appear connected to smartphones before, today a set of press photos suggests that the user might be able to use these devices without a companion smart unit at all. Where before we'd assumed that it was the smartphone - or tablet - that allowed a Sony Lens Camera to be controlled, today a set of photos that very much appear to be press-quality (aka real from Sony, more than likely) show a couple of users working with these devices without being physically attached to the smartphone in hand.

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.

Sony Lens Cameras teased: attaching to all, from Xperia to iPhone

As tipped all the way back near the middle of July, Sony's Lens Cameras (DSC-QX10 and DSC-QX100) once again appear to be upon us. These cameras are appearing in press images this afternoon courtesy of Sony Alpha Rumors both on their own and attached to the Sony Xperia Z and Sony Xperia i1, aka Honami. The DSC-QX10 as well as the DSC-QX100 will be working only when working with a Sony smartphone, meaning they've got their own hardware inside not normally found in the body of a replaceable lens system.

Nokia Lumia 1020 camera grip leaks at all angles

It's no secret that the Nokia EOS (or Nokia 1020 as it'll be called later this week, more than likely), will be rolling out with some serious photography power. Here as we saw very, very briefly earlier this week, we've gotten another look at a key accessory for this machine - a camera grip that makes the machine much more like the big-handling machines its amalgamation of lenses and processing abilities suggests. UPDATE: We've now got our own Nokia Lumia 1020 camera grip hands-on as well!
