Can smartphones replace DSLRs for print publications?

The latest issue of the food magazine Bon Appetit has been released with inspiration from the most modern means of experiencing food: Instagram. Instagram being just one example of the many social networks and means of sharing the resulting photos taken by food-lovers - it's all about the culture. In addition to the impetus for the issue being social sharing, the full collection of photos inside was photographed by Apple's iPhone exclusively. What better way to drive home the point that we're obligated to photograph our meals than to show it with the tool millions use to do it?

Sony Xperia M5 mid-ranger has a surprisingly decent camera

You know that smartphone cameras have come a long way when even a non-flagship model can stand proud along with not so recent flagships. That seems to be case with the Xperia M5, a mid-tier smartphone that Sony launched last year with the exact goal of putting a more affordable but competitive smartphone camera in users' hands. And based on the findings of digital photography authorities DxOMark, Sony has almost hit the mark. Sadly but not unexpected, the Xperia M5 still falls far from the top.

The next great smartphone isn’t a phone at all

The next great smartphone isn’t a phone at all

When Apple created the world's most popular smartphone, they made it basic. It took what the personal computer was and took out all the work. Android opened the doors to a much more complex system, allowing both simple and complicated phones to be made. Google expanded beyond smartphones to all manner of devices, large and small, content creator to content consumer. The next game-changer is both. Two devices. One experience. Just like the simultaneous rise of the video camera and the movie screens on which their content was shown.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF8 puts even more emphasis on selfies

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF8 puts even more emphasis on selfies

A new Panasonic digital single lens mirrorless camera (DSLM) has arrived in town and the camera maker is unabashedly marketing it not just to selfie lovers but, curiously, primarily to women as well. The follow up to last year's GF7, the new Lumix GF8 takes after its predecessor in the selfie department. But it tries to do one better, not exactly upping the specs, which are mostly identical, but by introducing new features available in selfie mode that could delight that kind of avid digital photographer.

Ubersnap wants to print out your gifs (yes, they move)

Remember when you first watched Harry Potter, and practically all of the technology in the wizard world was just powered by whimsy? Old oil lamps, and quills made everything feel like it was set in the 1800's. However, the wizards had one interesting piece of tech that we muggles have yet to master. Printed copies of moving pictures. These were found in frames, and even newspapers, but we still have to resort to phones and computers if we want to see that sort of thing. But one company wants to change that.

HTC M10 “Perfume” might finally have competitive cameras

There was a time not too long ago when HTC tried to make it big in the smartphone camera department with its UltraPixels spiel. The problem with that was it was a rather confusing new marketing buzzword that ended up with little to show for. It eventually ditched that term, save for the front camera, opting for a still underwhelming regular sensor. Now it seems that HTC is finally really stepping up, based on a few leaks that point to what could be an impressive camera pair, that will still be "UltraPixel".
