Fujifilm X-T30 brings mirrorless X-T3 features to a compact body

Fujifilm X-T30 brings mirrorless X-T3 features to a compact body

In 2017, Fujifilm launched the X-T20 that took its cues from the design and features of the X-T2 mirrorless camera. Today, it's making a similar addition to its X series, this time taking after last year's X-T3. While the new X-T30 comes in a lighter and more compact body, that doesn't mean it's any less capable. In fact, it combines the best of both worlds by inheriting the X-T3's 4th gen specs as well as the design and convenience features of the X-T20.

2019 iPhone XI changes: Less slippery coating, new front tweaks

2019 iPhone XI changes: Less slippery coating, new front tweaks

Let me tell you how important it is to me that my smartphone is not slippery. Every single time I've reviewed a phone in the past almost-decade I mentioned the slippery nature of the phone where applicable. Now, with the 2019 iPhone, maybe called iPhone XI, iPhone 11, there's a rumor that Apple may have addressed this situation between generations. This device might be less slippery than the iPhones that've come before.

Vivo V15 Pro will have a 32MB selfie camera

Vivo V15 Pro will have a 32MB selfie camera

Last year, Vivo launched a rather interesting solution to notches in its Vivo NEX S: a pop-up front facing camera. It was certainly a neat idea, especially if you hate notches in any form, because it means no cutouts on your nice edge-to-edge display. For as novel as the idea is, it's one that hasn't really caught on in the world of smartphone design, as many manufacturers seem to be gravitating toward hole-punch cutouts on the display for their selfie cameras.

Flickr extends free account image deletion deadline to March 12

Flickr extends free account image deletion deadline to March 12

Though Flickr gave users an early warning about its plan to reduce free photo hosting, there were some users who inevitably missed the news. The company revealed last year that following its SmugMug acquisition, it would reduce free accounts to a limit of 1,000 photos. Customers who wanted more would either need to pay or save their images before they were deleted.

iPhone 11’s tipped 3D laser cameras won’t be exclusive for long

iPhone 11’s tipped 3D laser cameras won’t be exclusive for long

This week 3D-sensing laser manufacturer Lumentum spoke about the future of their products in devices beyond those they've worked with in the recent past. Lumentum is the primary supplier of vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) components for Apple's iPhone X line of smartphones re: TrueDepth front-facing cameras. These lasers enable Face ID, portrait mode photography (frontside camera only, for now), and Animoji, in iPhones of several sorts. This week Lumentum Chief Executive Officer Alan Lowe said straight up: Android's on the way.

Flickr deleting photos starting tomorrow: How to prepare

Flickr deleting photos starting tomorrow: How to prepare

When Smugmug bought Flickr at the end of last year, folks who were using it as a repository for their photos received some bad news. Instead of the 1TB of storage Flickr had been offering when it was owned by Yahoo, Smugmug changed that to a mere 1000 photos, unless of course you signed up for a Flickr Pro subscription, which runs $50 a year. Those who don't shell out for a Pro subscription will have their photos purged until they're at the 1000 photo threshold, and that purge begins tomorrow.

Google Duo low light mode will brighten the darkest night

Although Google has never really been known for its expertise in photography, it is starting to make a name for itself in that area, particularly on mobile. Its work on software-based photography with the Pixel phones’ lone camera has been impressive and its recent Night Sight turns night into day. Not everyone has a Pixel phone though so it’s mildly reassuring to find out that Google might be working on something similar for its Google Duo video chat app. Plus, it’s also working on something for lovers this month.
