SLO film camera is 3D printed from scratch – including the lens

3D-printing technology has been used to create everything from bio items like eye cells to large structures including concrete houses. Some items are more functional than others, but any success serves as a proof-of-concept showing a particular thing can be done, and the work of designer Amos Dudley is no exception. Detailed on his blog in recent days is a project in which Dudley successfully creates a film camera from scratch using nothing but a 3D-printer... and this includes the lens itself, which is functional (though not terribly suitable for the task).

iPhone 7 Plus camera samples appear before full reviews

Over the weekend, Tim Cook and Apple handed a few iPhone 7 Plus phones to professional photographers. They appeared at a couple of sporting events and shot some fabulous-looking photos which we've gathered here.

iPhone 7 Plus dual-camera: how does it work?

iPhone 7 Plus dual-camera: how does it work?

This week Apple revealed their headliner iPhone 7 device with a design very similar to the iPhone 6s - but the Plus, that's a different story. The iPhone 7 Plus was revealed with two camera lenses at its back. It's not that this hasn't ever been done before, but the idea that Apple would feel confident enough in a system with two separate lenses - that speaks to its viability. As such, we're interested in seeing how Apple is making use of both of these lenses - and both sensors under the surface.

iPhone 7 camera: 12MP, OIS, quad-LED flash, 60% faster

The iPhone 7 boasts an all-new 12-megapixel camera, though as expected, it is of the single-lens variety (you’ll need to grab the iPhone 7 Plus if you want the dual-lens camera). The iPhone’s offering is still a force to be reckoned with, though, as it brings optical image stabilization with it, an f/1.8 aperture, and a six-element lens, not to mention the high-speed sensor and Apple’s own ISP. This is joined by a wide color gamut and quad-LED True Tone flash, the sum total of which is a powerhouse mobile photography device.

While we're not about to say that Google would ever attempt to take on Apple's iPhone business directly, it's always interesting to see how closely each successive generation of smartphone add up against one another. Google began commissioning Nexus smartphones all the way back in the beginning of Android (as it was run by Google).

Canon XC15 compact 4K Camcorder makes room for XLR audio

Canon XC15 compact 4K Camcorder makes room for XLR audio

Most digital cameras naturally put the emphasis on image quality. But professionals, especially those who work with video, also require professional audio for their masterpieces. Cramming in professional-grade audio recording components would bulk up the camera, so the Canon XC15 takes a different route. In order to maintain its lightweight form, this 4K UHD camcorder instead includes an adapter that allows photographers to use their choice of XLR input microphones, resulting in high quality in both video and audio.
