Hasselblad H6D-400c MS camera produces 400MP 2.3GB images

Hasselblad H6D-400c MS camera produces 400MP 2.3GB images

Smartphones have gotten quite good, even great, at capturing moments on the fly, but there will always be room for more professional use cases, from super slow mo to very high resolution images. For those, you’ll need specialized equipment, like the new H6D-400c multi-shot camera from Hasselblad. If you thought 2016’s H6D-100c was already impressive with its 100 megapixel output, you’ll probably be even more impressed with a 400 megapixel 16-bit TIFF image that will take up 2.3 GB of space on your data storage.

US Army base removes Chinese cameras, but not over security risk

In a somewhat unusual move, the U.S. Army has confirmed that one of its bases have removed five security cameras made in China. One would presume the move was due to security concerns, but that's not the case. The Army confirmed the move, saying the removal was due to "negative perception" about the cameras' presence on the base.

SkyBell Plug-in Camera mounts directly over a wall outlet

SkyBell has announced a new security camera simply called the Plug-in Camera. That names hints at the camera's most notable feature: it plugs into the wall. Yes, every camera plugs into the wall, but SkyBell's new model is a bit different. You don't mount the Plug-in Camera somewhere and then plug it into the wall using a long charging cable; rather, the camera itself installs directly over an outlet by plugging into it.

Nokia 8 DxOMark score shows it has some catching up to do

Nokia 8 DxOMark score shows it has some catching up to do

Once upon a time, Nokia had a reputation for good phone cameras, especially with its partnership with lens maker Zeiss. Of course, back then, it didn’t have much competition anyway. As it got left behind in the smartphone race, it also lost its prominence in mobile photography. And just as the Nokia 8 is its current champion in the smartphone market, so it also represents its best foot in taking pictures and recording videos. And, unfortunately, HMD Global still has a lot of work to do.

Google Camera Mod brings Portrait/Lens Blur, 4K recording to some devices

Google Camera Mod brings Portrait/Lens Blur, 4K recording to some devices

There’s no doubt about it, Google’s camera software on its Pixel smartphones, specifically the Pixel 2 is topnotch. It is a huge part of the reason, with hardware only secondary, why the Pixel 2 is at the top of DxOMark’s list. Unfortunately, Google isn’t exactly sharing its Camera app with others, even its own Nexus phones, even if some phones are capable of supporting those features. Fortunately, Android has a very passionate community of developers and modders who have picked the app apart and put it back together to bring the Google Camera mod to more smartphones.

HP Z 3D Sprout camera add-on hands-on

HP Z 3D Sprout camera add-on hands-on

The HP Sprout desktop, announced way back in 2014, was already an odd idea. It basically mounted a 3D camera on top of an all-in-one PC that let you scan both 3D and 2D objects. Its near $2,000, at least back then, price tag didn’t help its cause either. Still believing that this is the future of computer input and interaction, HP has tried to make the technology more accessible, in both form and price. Enter the HP Z 3D camera, which is basically the Sprout camera, detached, and compatible with almost any Windows system, preferably HP’s, of course.

Pixel 2 Portrait Mode unofficially on OG Pixel, Nexus 6P, 5X

Pixel 2 Portrait Mode unofficially on OG Pixel, Nexus 6P, 5X

The Google Pixel 2, and the OG Pixel before it, has been hailed as having one of if not the best smartphone cameras in the market. But its real accomplishment is not exactly in the camera hardware but in the software Google has developed to actually make up for the lack in hardware. But because it's mostly software-based, it's also a bit easier to extract that magic and make it available for other compatible smartphones. And thus, Google Camera mod Camera NX was born, which now includes the much sought-after bokeh effect to older Google phones.
