Yi Home Camera Review: a great budget security camera

Every home should have a security camera even if it's just for peace of mind. There's no shortage of options on the market, and just about every budget range is covered. The lower one goes on the budget scale, though, the higher one's odds of picking up a low-quality, inferior product. Such concerns have been expressed about Chinese company Yi's wireless Home Camera, but are those concerns valid? Read our review to find out!

DxOMark says Huawei P10 has chops but not the best

DxOMark says Huawei P10 has chops but not the best

Gone are the days when only Apple, Samsung, and Sony were considered to have the best smartphone cameras in town. It might surprise some that Huawei is now among the top contenders in that area as well. It’s definitely taking photography seriously and that has seemingly paid off in the Huawei P10. Based on DxOMark’s extensive review, the 2017 flagship gets a score of 87, placing it in third behind the Google Pixel and HTC 10, but above the iPhone 7. It’s also a huge jump from the Huawei P9, which got a score of 80 only, which helped put Huawei on the global smartphone map.

iPhone 8’s new 3D camera could delay it by months

iPhone 8’s new 3D camera could delay it by months

The iPhone 8 isn’t even out yet, or even confirmed, and it’s already being delayed. At least, that’s what sources were saying in comparison to the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus, which are expected to launch in September as per tradition. It wasn’t clear at first why Apple would make such a move. Perhaps it’s meant to give the more traditional iPhone 7s a window of opportunity before the potentially hot iPhone 8 lands in the market. That, however, may just be a side effect of the supposed real reason for the delay: a new 3D camera system made by STMicroelectroncs.

Insta360 Air now on sale to turn Android, PCs into 360 cameras

It wasn’t too long ago when 360-degree cameras were the hot thing in both mobile and photography spaces. You had the Samsung Gear 360, the LG 360 CAM, the Ricoh Theta, and, of course, the Insta360 Nano. That last one, however, was restricted to the iPhone 6 and latter only. So late last year, Insta360 went to Indiegogo to give Android users their due, the spherical Insta360 Air. After a successful run, the highly portable and, dare we say affordable, 360-degree camera is now available for purchase in the US and Europe, potentially turning anyone into 360-degree artist.

Amazon home security camera, possibly with Alexa, leaks on retailer’s site

It looks like Amazon’s getting into the home security camera market, at least if a new image pulled from the retailer’s website is any indication.

Honor VR Camera is a custom-made Insta360 Air

It’s actually been a while since we’ve seen new equipment that tries to actually create VR-related content rather than just consuming them. Professional VR cameras still cost an arm and a leg and probably more, but there are always cheaper and more portable solutions around. Some of those come from Insta360, a company that specializes in smartphone-compatible 360-degree cameras. It has revealed that Huawei has chosen it to help create the Honor VR Camera for Android smartphones.

StyleShoots Live smart studio doesn’t need a (human) photographer

StyleShoots Live smart studio doesn’t need a (human) photographer

Dutch company StyleShoots has introduced its new StyleShoots Live, a so-called ‘smart studio’ that can take videos and stills all on its own. The idea here is that traditional photography shoots require (human) photographers, but as with all things, those humans are being made redundant by artificial intelligence and robotics. With this smart studio, technology handles everything from lighting to adjusting the shots, leaving humans to handle the reviewing and, if necessary, post-processing aspects.

Meitu T8 boasts of a 12MP Dual Pixel selfie camera

Meitu T8 boasts of a 12MP Dual Pixel selfie camera

Chinese manufacturers have always been quicker to jump on the latest fads, unlike the larger companies that are more wary of missing earnings forecasts. So when the smartphone world decided that selfies are the next big thing, many of these OEMs came out flashy gimmicks and features. The newly unveiled Meitu T8, however, probably takes the cake. Sure, it might not have the highest megapixel count around, but it boasts of having the first, and probably only, smartphone with a front camera with Dual Pixel technology.

OPPO’s MWC 2017 show to focus on 5x optical zoom for phones

There’s still a lot that can be done for cameras on smartphones. You can make them smaller to get rid of that dastardly bump. You can improve their low-light performance. And you can improve their overall quality. At MWC 2017, OPPO will reveal one more area of improvement: zooming. It may not have a smartphone to show off next week. Instead, it will be revealing a smartphone camera technology that will allow these mobile devices to achieve 5x optical zoom.
