Panasonic GH5 launch date unofficially revealed

Panasonic GH5 launch date unofficially revealed

Back at Photokina last September, Panasonic revealed four new LUMIX cameras. Among the four, the GH5 received some distinction, not because of the camera itself but because, unlike the others, it was still marked as "coming soon" and remained shrouded in mystery. That mystery, however, might soon be coming to an end if the latest leaked information proves to be true. Well, "soon" here means "later than earlier anticipated" as the Panasonic GH5 is now expected to start shipping in March, rather than in January.

Orah 4i 4K live streaming VR camera now ready for buyers

360 degrees, 4K resolution, and 3D audio, all in real time.

Light L16 camera begins mass production in Q2 2017, will ship soon after

Light's L16 camera, a model that features many small lenses and image sensors to capture multiple shots of the same subject, will enter mass production in the second quarter of 2017, the company has announced. This follows a previous delay and means those who pre-ordered will see their purchase shipping "as possible after mass production begins," assuming no further delays surface.

Blink XT outdoor security camera goes on pre-order

Blink XT outdoor security camera goes on pre-order

We have been impressed, though left wanting for more, by Nest’s attempt at bringing its security camera to the great outdoors. Nest, however, is hardly the only game in town. Blink, which also has an indoor home security camera and cloud storage, is almost stepping out of its shell. Introducing the Blink XT, whose only real difference, aside from the price, is that it is fit to be used outdoors, under sun, rain, or snow. All while still providing the same key benefit of the regular Blink camera.

GoPro Karma drone’s Grip now on sale by its lonesome self

GoPro Karma drone’s Grip now on sale by its lonesome self

We’re still not sure when the Karma, GoPro’s first ever and ill-fated drone, will return. IF it will return, which may be in doubt given GoPro’s financial troubles. But while the Karma itself may not be here, or may never be again, it’s legacy will live on. Or at least part of it. GoPro has just made available the Karma’s stabilizer as a standalone handheld product, the Grip. Perhaps it’s a last ditch effort to salvage what it can from the Karma, by selling the feature that made the drone quite impressive.

Some Google Pixels reported to have severe camera problems

Some Google Pixels reported to have severe camera problems

One of the key strengths of the Google Pixel smartphones is their camera, rated by DxOMark to be the best of the best so far. Even more impressive is the fact that they were able to pull it off without Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). So it is completely understandable if a good numbers are up in arms after experiencing no small amount of problems with the Pixel’s camera and with no fix yet in sight. To add insult to injury, Google representatives seem to have stopped responding to the issue as well.
