Podo camera redux has larger pixels, wide-angle lens, two week battery

Podo camera redux has larger pixels, wide-angle lens, two week battery

Remember the Podo wireless camera? It’s back again, this time as an upgraded version that has, among other things, twice the pixel size as the original and a wide-angle lens. Despite the changes, Podo still offers its best features — you can stick it anywhere (just about, anyway) for quick on-the-fly recording. Stick it to a door, and it’ll record your visitors; to a wall, and it’ll record your pets; to the fridge, and it’ll see who is stealing your lunch.

Laowa 24mm f/14 Relay 2x Macro Lens looks like a death machine

Laowa 24mm f/14 Relay 2x Macro Lens looks like a death machine

Laowa has unveiled a new macro lens that doesn't look like any macro lens for photography you have seen before. It looks like some not so subtle sniper rifle for an assassin to use in a terribly cheesy spy flick. I ran across this on April Fool's day I might think it was a joke, but it is a real product. The 24mm f/14 Relay 2x Macro lens is on display at Photokina and is due to land in stores next year.

Nest Cam Outdoor Review

Nest Cam Outdoor Review

Streaming security cameras are probably the most popular gadget in the connected home, and Nest the best known today. After a fairly slow start after its Dropcam acquisition in 2014, Nest finally has an outdoor model, the unimaginatively titled Nest Cam Outdoor. Like the Nest Cam - designed for indoor use - it's $199.99, though for the full range of features you'll need to cough up a monthly or annual subscription.

What you should know about Snapchat Spectacles

What you should know about Snapchat Spectacles

Snapchat's unexpected rebranding to Snap Inc. may have come as a surprise, but it's the company's first hardware product that really has us talking. The new Snap Spectacles, a wirelessly-enabled camera built into a pair of sunglasses, has already been described as the second coming of Google Glass, though the ephemeral messaging company undoubtedly hopes that they'll have more staying power than Google's ill-fated wearable.

Why the iPhone 7 Plus camera is worth the upgrade

Why the iPhone 7 Plus camera is worth the upgrade

The improvements Apple has made to the iPhone 7's camera are hitting me where it hurts: in my pocket. Although on paper the new handset's 12-megapixels may look pretty much the same as the 12-megapixels the iPhone 6s offered before it, in reality it's all-change in the iPhone 7's top left corner. And, as I discovered while reviewing both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, that has an unexpectedly big impact on the photos you can capture, not to mention which version of Apple's smartphone that I'd recommend.

Rollei Actioncam 430 is a small 4K adventure camera

A tiny action camera was recently shown off at Photokina, and though it doesn't have the same household name status as GoPro, it does come in a similar form factor.

Like other action cameras, the Actioncam 430 is designed to record your various adventures, including ones involving water (thanks to a waterproof case).

Polaroid Snap Touch instant camera boasts touchscreen

Polaroid Snap Touch instant camera boasts touchscreen

Leica recently introduced its “Sofort” instant camera, an offering that in some ways pales in comparison to Polaroid’s new Snap Touch instant camera. Unlike most instant cameras, the Snap Touch features a large 3.5-inch touchscreen on the back, blending the best elements of instant and digital cameras to make the process of near-analog photography all the more fun and convenient. The camera also supports recording video, offers Bluetooth, and more.

Canary Flex is a small, smart outdoor security camera

Canary Flex is a small, smart outdoor security camera

Canary has launched a new security camera product called the Canary Flex; it is small, smart, and can be used outdoors, withstanding things like rain and wind to stand ever vigilant over your home. The camera sits idle, and starts recording when it detects movement. If something particularly odd — at least in the camera’s estimation — comes into view, it’ll fire off a push notification to its owner. Overtime, Flex will better understand what kind of things are worth sending notifications about and which ones are, while unusual, of no particular interest or importance.

Sony A99 II brings modern technologies to a familiar name

Sony A99 II brings modern technologies to a familiar name

Almost exactly four years ago, Sony introduced what became the flagship model for its line of interchangeable lense cameras, the A99. But for years is too long a time for a flagship to stay at the top and the A99 was eventually overtaken by newer models. At Photokina this year, Sony is attempting to reclaim the throne with an updated camera but still a familiar name. The Sony A99 II obviously takes its lead from 2012’s forefrunner, but boasts of the technologies befitting a 2016 flagship.

Fujifilm GFX puts a large 51MP sensor in a mirrorless camera

Those who believe that the camera market has run out of tricks against the onslaught of smartphones may have been proven wrong by Fujifilm’s latest announcement. At Photokina, the camera maker unveiled the Fujifilm GFX 50S, the first of its brand new GFX camera system and G frame sensor line. Perhaps more than the camera itself, the focus is being lavished on the new GFX system that aims to redefine medium format cameras, fitting a large-sized 51.4 megapixel sensor inside the light and compact body of a mirrorless camera.
