Why I used this DSLR for the Microsoft event, not a smartphone

Why I used this DSLR for the Microsoft event, not a smartphone

I traveled to New York this week to cover the Microsoft Surface event. Over the past couple of years, tech journalists turned to smartphones to capture the news, from all perspectives and in all situations. I'm guilty of using a smartphone for major event coverage - there's nothing really wrong with doing it. Especially when devices like the Galaxy Note 9 provide such top-notch photo and video options.

Canon Zoemini photo printer is smaller than your smartphone

Everything old is new again. Despite the popularity of digital photos posted on social media, printed photos are still a thing. In fact, they’ve become an even bigger thing for a younger generation that didn’t grow up with traditional photos. This has caused an explosion of portable printers whose sole purpose is to print such photos, sometimes in old Polaroid style even, and the Canon Zoemini is easily the smallest of them yet.

Canon 120MXS 120MP sensor will be great for surveillance

It’s been more than 3 years in the making but now Canon has something more concrete to show than just promises and theoretical data.

It has taken one step closer to making that drool-worthy and pocket-burning camera a reality with a 3-minute video showcasing why this particular sensor won’t be of interest just to photographers but even to security agencies and personnel.

Canon 470EX-AI Flash automatically moves for the best bounce

MWC 2018 may still be ongoing, but camera makers are wasting no time to introduce new products to shutterbugs. In fact, they seem to be timing it well to offer refuge for those who want to graduate from smartphone cameras.

Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III takes point-and-shoot up a notch

Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III takes point-and-shoot up a notch

The phrase “point-and-shoot” almost implies a camera that is both simple yet also underpowered. But camera technology has come a long way and component prices may have gone down quite a lot. Technology and economy have both played a role in making features previously only found in higher end DSLRs also available on previously less featured cameras. Case in point is the third gen PowerShot G1 X Mark III that packs two such features, though at no small cost.
