ZTE Axon 30 5G with under-display camera launched in China

ZTE Axon 30 5G with under-display camera launched in China

After countless leaks and an official teaser or two, ZTE has finally taken the covers off the world's second under-display camera smartphone. After the disappointing reality of its first UDC smartphone, it would be understandable if consumers held off on the Axon 30 5G UDC until the reviews come in. At least on paper, however, the phone might have enough going for it, especially for those who aren't big selfie fans anyway.

Sony ZV-E10 ILC camera takes ZV-1 to a new level with E-mount lenses

The Sony ZV-E10 was revealed this week with abilities that eclipse the company's otherwise most impressive "creator-centric" cameras designed for video creators and vloggers.

Galaxy Z Fold 3 under-display camera leaks send mixed signals

Almost all the details about the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and most of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 have been leaked to death by this time. One detail, however, seems to still remain uncertain. Whether the Galax Z Fold 3 will be Samsung's first phone to have an under-display camera or not seems to still be uncertain, but most rumors point to a "yes.". That, unfortunately, isn't being received positively by some users, and the latest tips from the same source aren't helping clear things up.

Samsung Galaxy phones might get a Telephoto Pro mode soon

Samsung Galaxy phones might get a Telephoto Pro mode soon

Many smartphone makers are working hard on features that will help users worry less about the best camera settings and just point and shoot at a person or scene. At the same time, however, they have to balance these automatic features with controls that will satisfy more advanced mobile photographers. This "Pro Mode" has actually been a staple of many premium smartphones these days, but Samsung might be finally taking it a step further by enabling that mode for its telephoto cameras as well.

Yongnuo YN455 mirrorless micro four thirds camera runs Android

Yongnuo YN455 mirrorless micro four thirds camera runs Android

Smartphones were thought to displace entry-level digital cameras sooner or later, but there was a time they were almost positioned to literally do that. The flexibility and openness of the Android mobile platform made it ideal to be used in devices beyond phones and tablets, including digital cameras. At one point, it almost seemed like Android-powered cameras were going to start a new breed of mobile photography tools until they abruptly vanished. Now some manufacturers seem to be reviving this eccentric family of devices, with the Yonguo YN455 as its newest member.

DJI Pocket 2 Sunset White is more than just a new color option

Summer is at hand, which means a lot of outdoor activity for some people in some places around the world. That, in turn, usually means capturing those moments and making memories, often with a smartphone in our hands. Despite their growing power, some more active people find smartphones lacking in the stabilization department. That's where the mini-camera gimbal DJI Pocket 2 comes, and it now has a Sunset White colorway to match the season.

Galaxy S22 might not use a 200MP camera from Samsung and Xiaomi

Galaxy S22 might not use a 200MP camera from Samsung and Xiaomi

Smartphone cameras are getting ridiculously large in terms of megapixel count, far surpassing the imaging sensors you'd find even on professional digital cameras. "More" doesn't always mean better, as some phone manufacturers have proven over the years, but that hasn't stopped them from still putting out mobile cameras with triple-digit megapixel counts. Samsung and Xiaomi have even been rumored to be working on a 200MP ISOCELL sensor that might not be used in Samsung's own Galaxy S22 next year.

Vivo patents a smartphone with a camera mini drone inside

Many use their smartphones to capture anything anywhere, sometimes even in difficult or dangerous locations and positions. One thing our powerful smartphones will never be able to do is to take aerial photos, at least not without some help from a drone or any other flying contraption. Never say never, as they say, and Vivo seems to be thinking of something to solve that problem. Its latest patent shows a smartphone that houses an honest-to-goodness quadcopter drone to take pictures from above, almost like in the movies.

Nikon Z fc mirrorless camera puts a modern heart in a glorious retro body

Nikon Z fc mirrorless camera puts a modern heart in a glorious retro body

Nikon has revealed its newest digital camera, though at first glance you'd be forgiven for thinking the Nikon Z fc mirrorless was something from the company's film-based archives. Thoroughly retro in its styling, the "heritage-design" model is the first time we've seen the Z-series embrace a more traditional aesthetic, though inside you're not compromising on hardware.

Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra 5G leak has one silly flaw

There's a new Samsung Galaxy S smartphone coming to the public in the year 2021 - of that you can be sure. The device we're looking at today is what its leakers suggest will be called the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra 5G. This device looks fantastic, from its four back-facing camera lenses, sensors, S Pen integration, and nearly full-coverage front display. But one flaw remains - right up there on its forehead.

Ring Car Cam leaks: This could be Amazon’s Alexa dash-cam

Details and what appears to be an image of Ring's upcoming Car Cam have leaked, with the connected dash cam expected to add security both when the vehicle is parked and while it's on the move. The newest addition to Ring's line-up was actually announced in September 2020 as part of Amazon's big device launch, though at the time no pictures of the Car Cam hardware itself were shared.

Sony Airpeak S1 drone debuts to take Alpha cameras to new heights

Sony Airpeak S1 drone debuts to take Alpha cameras to new heights

Drones for pros and consumers are nothing new and neither are drones with cameras covering a wide range of qualities. Most of these drones come with their own cameras, however, and few actually let you use whatever professional camera you may already own. That's what makes Sony's first foray into the world of drone photography interesting in that it is designed to be used with a different camera, specifically Sony's own interchangeable-lens Alpha cameras. In fact, the Sony Airpeak S1 drone doesn't come with a camera or even a gimbal of its own.
