Sony Wireless Shooting Grip is made for its mirrorless cameras

Sony Wireless Shooting Grip is made for its mirrorless cameras

Smartphone cameras may be ubiquitous and have significantly improved over the years but they're still a long way from overthrowing professional equipment, even the more handy ones. Mirrorless cameras are often the go-to products for on-the-go photography gear but, despite their portability, can still sometimes be a pain to hold, especially over long periods. That's why Sony has just announced the GP-VPT2BT Shooting Grip which it touts as the best hassle-free grip in its arsenal, mostly because it doesn't use any cables to work.

If you think carefully back to last year's CES event, you may remember Panasonic's announcement of an odd home security camera built discreetly into the top of a floor lamp.

Insta360 ONE R is a modular action cam with interchangeable lens mods

Insta360 ONE R is a modular action cam with interchangeable lens mods

360-degree videos have become fashionable these days, even without the virtual reality factor, because of how they enable recording everything for manual editing and cutting later. Due to size constraints, sensors in most 360 cameras are often less than what you could get if there was only one sensor pointing in one direction. This forces consumers to make an upfront choice about what to buy or what to use for a specific occasion. What if you didn't have to choose? What if you could have all of those and switch between them at a moment's notice like you would switch lenses on a regular camera? That is exactly what Insta360 is promising with the Insta360 ONE R, delivering a 360-degree lens, a 4K wide-angle lens, and a 1-inch Wide-Angle sensor all in one bundle.

Canon EOS-1D X Mark III DSLR puts the focus on AF

With smartphones cannibalizing the point and shoot camera market, pro camera manufacturers have been pushed to step up their game and widen the gap between mobile and dedicated cameras. There are definitely a lot of things a smartphone can't do compared to a DSLR given the constraints in hardware and size. Despite the almost ridiculous amount of pixels in mobile imaging sensors, now up to 108 megapixels, phones often falter when it comes to exposure and especially autofocus. It isn't by coincidence, then, that that is exactly where the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III shines the brightest.

Sony is an unexpected victim of its own success

Sony smartphones may not be flying off the shelves, but even if you bought a recent iPhone or one of many Android phones you're actually a Sony customer - and contributing to its production headache.

Google spills the Pixel 4’s camera magic

Google's Pixel 4 may have added the second camera it long avoided, but a deep-dive into Portrait Mode shows it's not slowing up on computational photography. Earlier versions of the Pixel relied on post-processing trickery to coax a faux-bokeh shot from a single lens, where rivals used the double-data from two adjacent sensors.
