Galaxy Note 8 ties with iPhone 8 Plus on DxOMark camera list

Galaxy Note 8 ties with iPhone 8 Plus on DxOMark camera list

It wasn't too long ago, in fact just last week, when Apple reclaimed its throne in the smartphone camera kingdom. But while the iPhone 8 Plus still sits at the top of DxOMark's list, it now has to share that spot with the Galaxy Note 8. That said, while Samsung's latest and greatest scores the highest in still photos, DxOmark was more impressed by its zooming capabilities than by any other feature.

Insta360 Pro lets anyone shoot their own Street View images

Insta360 Pro lets anyone shoot their own Street View images

If you've ever dreamt of driving around capturing pictures of roads and homes for Google Street View, you now have a way to do that. No, it's not a job and you won't be paid for it; in fact, it'll cost you about $3,500 to buy the Insta360 Pro camera that was just certified for the task. Think of it as a labor of love that helps beef up Google Street View, or maybe just gives you a novel way to waste a few hours.

Google Camera with HDR+ port now has RAW support, more controls

Google Camera with HDR+ port now has RAW support, more controls

When Google launched the Pixel phones, it somewhat crossed the fine line that separated it from Android OEMs. While mostly still remaining true to its open culture, it started to keep some thing exclusive to its "Made by Google" phones. This being Android, however, it didn't take long for enterprising developers to rip those apart and emancipate them for other worthy Android smartphones. One prime example is the Google Camera app which, on the Pixel, had a much coveted HDR+ feature. That has since been ported for other phones and, now, has been updated with a few sweet features to boot.

GoPro Fusion Preview: This video shows the 360 camera’s true potential

GoPro Fusion Preview: This video shows the 360 camera’s true potential

GoPro may have launched the HERO6 action camera this week, but it's the Fusion camera which has me really intrigued. It promises 360-degree video and photo capture like other VR cameras we've seen, but justifies its $699 price tag with OverCapture, GoPro's big new software feature. That will allow you to take 1080p traditional videos from spherical footage, and as I found out when I tested it myself, it's a potential game-changer.

GoPro HERO6 first-impressions: QuikStories, 4K and stabilization

GoPro's HERO6 Black has arrived, and while it might not have the slick 360-degree features of the GoPro Fusion, 4K60 support is not to be ignored. Promising better digital stabilization, more involving colors and broader dynamic range, and a handy touch zoom, not to mention swifter wireless, you get a lot for your $499. I put on a helmet and got temporarily EXTREME to see how it holds up.

GoPro Fusion official: Slick software makes a 360 must-have

GoPro Fusion official: Slick software makes a 360 must-have

GoPro's Fusion spherical camera has finally launched, the company's latest action camera packing 5.2K resolution. Announced back in April, the Fusion clearly looks like a relation to GoPro's HERO cameras - including the HERO6 Black also announced today - but it has a far broader field of view. In fact, it captures a full 360-degrees, though you don't have to keep the footage that way.

The Amazon Echo Spot was introduced today as a smart alarm clock with Alexa inside.

D-Link Omna 180 Cam HD adds Android support, new features

D-Link Omna 180 Cam HD adds Android support, new features

When we reviewed a new security camera that surprisingly came from a networking equipment manufacturer, we were equally pleasantly surprised by its promising value. Unfortunately, it was marred by a few “day one” lapses, like support for Android devices and a few video handling quirks. Half a year later, D-Link has finally decided to give its young Omna 180 Cam HD a much needed software update, and in a snap it has suddenly become a lot more useful.

iPhone 8 Plus is now DxOMark’s highest rated phone camera

iPhone 8 Plus is now DxOMark’s highest rated phone camera

Camera benchmark specialists DxO just recently revised their testing procedures and ratings to make room for modern smartphone camera features. And that update may have just given Apple the advantage to reclaim the title of King of Smartphone Cameras. The second new smartphone it tested after the update (the Xperia XZ Premium being the first), the iPhone 8 Plus now stands at the top of DxOMark's list, followed immediately by the smaller iPhone 8. This definitely puts a lot more pressure on former champion Google to do better with the Google Pixel 2 coming next week.

Kodak Orbit360 is a 4K VR action camera for outdoor adventures

Kodak aims to make on-the-go 360-degree video recording simple and available to anyone via its new Orbit360, a 4K camera under its PixPro product lineup. This camera is, like action cameras before it, durable enough to handle less-than-gentle outdoor usage, as well as compact enough to easily transport. Despite this, it creates fully spherical videos for use with VR.

Nikon reveals it’s working on a full-frame mirrorless camera

While camera makers like Sony, Fujifilm, and Olympus have found varying levels of success with the mirrorless camera format, Nikon has been more conservative, limiting its offerings to devices that are closer to the point-and-shoot market. It looks like that's going to change soon, as Nikon has said that going forward, all of their mirrorless cameras will be full-frame.
