Sony A7s low-light demo is the video photographers must see

Sony A7s low-light demo is the video photographers must see

Sony's new A7s camera may look a whole lot like its A7 and A7r predecessors, but it has a powerful trick up its sleeve: incredible low-light performance thanks to a sensor with a whopping 409,600 maximum ISO. Actually envisaging what that means in terms of visibility in poorly-lit situations is tough, however, which is why Sony has put together a comparison of what extra detail you can make out when you crank up the sensitivity.

Guardians of the Galaxy Trailer 2: closer to truth

Guardians of the Galaxy Trailer 2: closer to truth

This week another Guardians of the Galaxy trailer has been released with cuts far closer to what the final film will look like than the first couple of glimpses we got earlier this year. As you’ll see below, these changes are mostly in the background - when Djimon Hounsou (aka Korath the Pursuer) steps forth to dismiss Chris Pratt’s character Star-Lord’s claim to fame, it’s no longer a cloudy day. Instead they’re standing inside a collection of structures, massive and ancient.

HBO released word today that the show would be renewed for two more seasons - and we’d not be surprised if it was renewed well beyond that.

Pokemon NXT: 3D, 3rd-person, fan-made pseudo-MMO

Pokemon NXT: 3D, 3rd-person, fan-made pseudo-MMO

Impatient Pokemon fans tired of waiting for Nintendo to create an MMORPG of their favorite gaming title have taken matters into their own hands with Pokemon NXT. This game is still in Alpha mode and is completely fan-made, relying on stealth (good luck on that) to stay out of the watchful eyes of Nintendo officials. At the moment you’ll have to nab this game through sites like Kongregate before it’s shut down by Nintendo for good (though we cross our fingers that it'll stick around for the betterment of all Pokemon players worldwide).
