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. The camera works with a 24.2-megapixel APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor and BIONZ X image processing engine inside, ready to connect to all manner of lenses from the get-go. The features on this Sony ZV-E10 camera will be familiar to those users that've already handled the Sony ZV-1, but here the machine can expand in a wide array of ways with Sony E-mount lenses aplenty.

Gorilla Glass DX and DX+ will protect and enhance your mobile photography

Dedicated digital cameras are largely a thing of the past -- no one needs to carry around a point-and-shoot camera when they can simply whip out their smartphone and take all the images they want. There is a downside, however, which is that your phone is heavily used in ways your old digital camera likely wasn't and that means one big issue: scratches on the camera lens.

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

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.

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.

The iPhone 13 Pro ultra-wide camera could get a long overdue upgrade

The iPhone 13 Pro ultra-wide camera could get a long overdue upgrade

The iPhone 13 should deliver more impressive ultra-wide shots, at least assuming you've opted for Apple's high-end Pro models, according to a new analyst prediction. While much of the attention in smartphone photography is paid to the primary sensor, and then to the optical zoom if one is present, Apple is also believed to be readying an upgrade at the other lens extreme for 2021.

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.

Samsung ISOCELL JN1 shrinks a 50MP sensor down to 0.64 micropixels

Samsung ISOCELL JN1 shrinks a 50MP sensor down to 0.64 micropixels

As smartphone cameras start boasting more and more pixels, they've also started to become bigger and bigger. Just like with processors, the challenge for imaging sensors is to cram as many photodiodes on a small surface without enlarging the size of that surface. That's the achievement that Samsung is boasting about with its new ISOCELL JN1 that is able to cram 50 million pixels in the size of a 1/2.76-inch format sensor. Whether it's able to take better or similar quality photos as Samsung's larger 50MP sensors, however, remains to be tested.

iPhone 13 may return to camera dominance in 2021

The next iPhone could very well put Apple back in the driver's seat for smartphone camera innovation, so says today's Digitimes report. It's likely Apple's upgraded collection of iPhone devices set for release in the year 2021 will increase their use of VCMs. Increased demand for VCM components (voice coil motors) point to significant upgrades in 3D sensors and higher-end camera modules for the iPhone 13 family.
