Snapchat Spectacles now available via yellow ‘bot’ vending machine

Snapchat's previously announced Spectacles -- that is, its camera-equipped sunglasses -- are now available to buy, but they're not easy to get (for most people). You have to buy the camera glasses from a yellow vending machine Snap Inc. calls a 'bot,' and it is currently located in Los Angeles, California. The vending machine is only staying in one spot for a single day, though, then it'll disappear not unlike photos and videos shared via Snapchat.

Nikon D5600 entry-level DSLR comes with Bluetooth

Nikon D5600 entry-level DSLR comes with Bluetooth

When you mention DSLRs, or digital single-lens reflex cameras, you usually think of professional, not to mention expensive, photography equipment that no amateur or hobbyist has business of owning. That, of course, is a vicious cycle that prevents these future pros from getting acquainted with the technology. Nikon’s solution? The D5600, a “entry-level” DSLR that, despite the relatively lower price tag still packs enough features to endear it to budding photographers. Including the ability to immediately copy shots to a smartphone and upload them in an instant.

Chronos slow mo camera makes 21,000 fps more affordable

Forget your smartphone’s 120 fps slow motion feature. This little camera can shoot at 21,600 frames per second! Of course at a very low resolution. But even at 1,000 fps, the Chronos 1.4C already offers an impressive capability, which is all the more made impressive by what would be its price tag. Yes, $2,500 isn’t exactly cheap by any means, but it’s still considerably more accessible compared to similar cameras offering the same capabilities at a mind-blowing $30,000.

DJI Zenmuse Z30 offers 30x optical zoom for industrial use

DJI’s fame might have started out with the Phantom drones, but the company prides itself in its imaging prowess, whether up in the air or, in the case of the Osmo, on land in your hand.

Birdie lets you (safely) throw your GoPro through the air

The best way to get aerial footage with your GoPro action camera is a drone. The thing is, drones are expensive and take training to operate safely, and newly enacted regulations have caused some to shy away from them regardless. Filling the void is a new shuttlecock-like contraption called Birdie (due to its obvious badminton inspiration), and it enables anyone to throw a GoPro into the air.

Leica Q Titanium Gray, Summaron-M give homage to the old

Leica Q Titanium Gray, Summaron-M give homage to the old

More than a year ago, Leica unveiled the Leica Q, an impressive compact camera that, despite its size, boasted of a full-frame sensor. You’d think that, by now, it would have a Q II in the wraps. Apparently not. Instead, the famed camera maker has opted not to change a working formula, settling instead for changing appearances only with the Leica Q Titanium Gray, though with significant impact, nonetheless. And to emphasize that old doesn’t mean obsolete, it is launching the new Summaron-M 28 mm f/5.6 wide-angle lens as a throwback to a 50s product.
