White House (mostly) ends its ban on social media and photos

After 40 years of banning photography -- and later on social media -- during White House public tours, the Obama administration has decided to lift the limitation.

Olympus Air A01 first-impressions: Modular Micro 4/3

You’d be forgiven if, after taking a quick glance at Olympus' new Air A01 doohickey, you dismissed it as a lens of some sort. In fact it’s more, much more. Think of the Air A01 as a Micro Four Thirds or Micro 4/3 camera minus the lens and display: ultra portable, allowing you to place or mount it anywhere your creativity takes you, and paired up wirelessly with an iOS or Android device. While add-on cameras are something we’ve already seen from Sony, Kodak, and others, Olympus’ decision to go for interchangeable lenses sets the Air A01 apart; read on for my first impressions.

iBlazr 2 is a wireless adjustable LED flash for your iPhone

When it comes to a smartphone’s camera, many users side-step the flash — for day time and incognito snaps, it doesn’t serve much purpose. There are times when the built-in flash is needed, though, and in those times it usually proves inadequate, perhaps just strong enough to illuminate nearby subjects but not much else. iBlazr presented a solution to that with its first external smartphone flash by the same name, and now it is back with a refined version called the iBlazr 2.
