Google Camera NX for Nexus 5X, 6P brings Motion Photos, Face Retouching

Google Camera NX for Nexus 5X, 6P brings Motion Photos, Face Retouching

Having great hardware is one thing, but without software to fully take advantage of it, their greatness is reduced. That is the painful truth that owners of the 2015 Nexus phones, the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P, find themselves in. Despite having capable camera hardware and the processors to drive some features, the stock camera apps don’t do it enough justice. Fortunately, this is Android and one enterprising developer, XDA Senior Member Charles_I, was able to take Google Camera 5.1 app intended for the new Pixel 2 phones and put them in a new Google Camera NX mod that will do wonders for the two last Nexus phones.

Galaxy Note 8 Zero Camera Mod enables QHD 60fps, HDR recording

As powerful as our smartphones today may be, they’re actually not as powerful as they can be. For one reason or another, OEMs choose to sometimes limit otherwise capable hardware. The already impressive Galaxy Note 8 camera, for example, is, on paper, able to do such things as record QHD video in 60 fps rates or 4K video with HDR enabled. If those power user features are important to you, then you might want to do the work of rooting your smartphone to install this Zero Camera Mod to get those and more.

Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III takes point-and-shoot up a notch

Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III takes point-and-shoot up a notch

The phrase “point-and-shoot” almost implies a camera that is both simple yet also underpowered. But camera technology has come a long way and component prices may have gone down quite a lot. Technology and economy have both played a role in making features previously only found in higher end DSLRs also available on previously less featured cameras. Case in point is the third gen PowerShot G1 X Mark III that packs two such features, though at no small cost.

Casio GZE-1 action camera looks like part of Iron Man’s armor

Casio GZE-1 action camera looks like part of Iron Man’s armor

You have to give Casio props for its latest camera. While most smart camera's are almost literal black boxes following GoPro's initial design, the GZE-1, a.k.a. the G'z EYE, looks like something straight out of a movie set. Iron Man fans might see some similarities in one of the super hero's props, but Casio's faithful customers might also see some resemblance to the company's G-SHOCK sports watches. That's no accident either, because the G'z EYE is, for all intents and purposes, the G-SHOCK EYE action camera.

Samsung’s new ISOCELL image sensors could be in the Galaxy S9

Samsung’s new ISOCELL image sensors could be in the Galaxy S9

Before Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 8 and its first ever dual camera system, it prepared the road by launching its imaging sensors into a distinct and marketable brand of its own: Samsung ISOCELL. Following that pattern, Samsung is announcing two new members of its four-tier product line, the ISOCELL Fast 2L9 and the ISOCELL Slim 2X7. Designed to fit in constrained spaces, these sensors might be a good fit for the shrinking space around front-facing cameras, possibly in the upcoming Galaxy S9.

Yashica Y35 digital camera is a toy that tries hard to be retro

Yashica Y35 digital camera is a toy that tries hard to be retro

It's been quite a while since we've heard from once famous Japanese camera maker Yashica. It's finally jumping back into the scene but in the oddest way possible, through Kickstarter. It's pitching a digital camera that is a throwback to its iconic Electro 35, but the Y35 also does it in a completely strange, and perhaps insane, way. The purely digital camera makes use of, and can't even work without, "pretend" film whose sole purpose is to provide the ISO and format for the camera. Pretty much like real film, except there is no film involved.
