That large lens is a fixed 14mm F4 lens that is equivalent to a 21mm lens on a 35mm camera.

Your first look at Mulder and Scully in the X-Files reboot

Your first look at Mulder and Scully in the X-Files reboot

This morning the X-Files reboot - via Fox - showed one single photo of Scully and Mulder, the heroes of this picture. While we've seen recent photos, videos, and live appearances of both Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny in the recent past, we've seen neither of them together in costume. In costume for THIS role, that is to say. For X-Files fans like myself, this is a sort of return home. Back to a place where anything can happen, and you're made to want to believe.

4GEE Action Cam offers livestreaming over 4G

4GEE Action Cam offers livestreaming over 4G

EE, a large British communications company, has introduced its own competitor to GoPro’s HERO4 action camera — it is called the 4GEE Action Cam, and it kicks off what will be a bigger line up of similarly branded products to be introduced later on in 2015. The 4GEE Action Cam has a design more akin to a typical compact camera rather than most action camera designs. There is a big catch, though. The camera is able to broadcast footage online, but doing so will require a 4G data subscription with EE, limiting it to a smaller range of users than the HERO4, Sony Action Cam, and other competing models.

Gekkopod is a flexible, wrappable camera and phone tripod

Tripods are becoming increasingly flexible, and Gekkopod is perhaps the best example of that. The Gekkopod tripod can hold a smartphone and a regular camera (though not at the same time) and be positioned just about anywhere the user would like — wrapped around the end of a long stick to be used as a selfie stick, around a tree branch to record some event, or on a flat but angular surface. The idea is that you can use the Gekkopod in a variety of situations that would otherwise necessitate many mounting accessories.

Google Photos Review

Google Photos Review

Releasing a new edition of their already in-place Photos app ecosystem, Google re-vamps their software with a set of tools that trumps the competition. What makes this particular solution so excellent is the ease with which you're able to implement it. This solution uses information built-in to your photos - location, for example - and seeks out similarities in photos (and video!) to organize your collection. Once uploaded, entirely for free, you'll have access from every device with which you've got web access.
