OnePlus 7 Pro owners are divided on camera quality

OnePlus 7 Pro owners are divided on camera quality

Benchmarks are great for starting a discussion as those usually have set rules and guidelines that can make comparisons a bit more consistent and standardized. They aren't, however, great for gauging real-world performance, which can vary wildly depending on unpredictable factors and, sometimes, personal preference. That seems to be the case with the OnePlus 7 Pro which has been given rather high scores on DxOMark, putting it in second place (tied with the Honor 20 Pro). Now that the phone is actually in users' hands, however, some are questioning how the site achieved those figures.

Olympus Tough TG-6 boldly goes where no phone even dares

Olympus Tough TG-6 boldly goes where no phone even dares

Smartphones have changed the camera market forever. For one, it put point-and-shoot cameras on notice, forcing camera makers to reevaluate their product lines and businesses. But just as important, it created a new culture and breed of photographers who want to take photos anytime, anywhere, even in places where $800 smartphones would start sweating in fear. Travel photography is the latest trend in the market and the new Olympus Tough TG-6 is ready to tough it out and rise to the challenge.

Samsung 5x zoom camera is ready but probably not for Galaxy Note 10

Samsung 5x zoom camera is ready but probably not for Galaxy Note 10

First it was dual cameras. Then it was bokehs, a.k.a. portrait mode. These days, it seems that the battle over smartphone cameras is moving over to higher level of optical zoom that won't force OEMs to bulk up their phones. Huawei has done it and so has OPPO so it's really no surprise that Samsung, and soon even Apple, are already following suit. The bigger question, however, is whether this 5x optical zoom camera module will debut on the Galaxy Note 10 and the chances of that seem to be a bit slim.

Honor 20 Pro is just a few marks shy of being DxOMark’s best

Honor 20 Pro is just a few marks shy of being DxOMark’s best

Huawei is having a pretty bittersweet month. It just launched the Huawei P30 series last month but now faces a crisis thanks to a US ban that has at least been temporarily suspended. It's sub-brand Honor launched its own 2019 flagship against that backdrop and the Honor 20 Pro just stole the third spot from the OnePlus 7 Pro on DxoMark's smartphone list. Which would make it a tragedy if sales are severely affected by the economic and political drama surrounding its parent company.

Honor 20 Pro sample photos tease Super Night Mode capability

Honor 20 Pro sample photos tease Super Night Mode capability

Honor is Huawei's secret weapon, having been responsible for more than half of the company's overall shipments last year. The sub-brand quickly grew out of its roots to offer premium flagship features in prices the big players wouldn't even dare go. The Honor 20 Pro is no different and, in fact, it might give its parent company reason to be worried. Judging by these sample photos being shared by Honor, it could even outdo the Huawei P30 Pro in low-light photography.

OnePlus 7 Pro DxOMark score should give Samsung and Huawei pause

OnePlus 7 Pro DxOMark score should give Samsung and Huawei pause

Despite its bang for buck appeal, OnePlus has never been known for having great cameras. Good, perhaps, but not great. And it's not that the company has been skimping on the imaging sensors to keep prices low. More likely, it just hasn't yet come across the perfect mix of hardware and software to putt it at the top. That seems to have finally changed with the OnePlus 7 Pro, at least based on DxOMark's scores.

DJI OSMO Action cam leaked specs and images build up the hype

DJI OSMO Action cam leaked specs and images build up the hype

Once upon a time, GoPro was the household name in the young action camera market. While it's still the most well-known brand, a lot of upstarts have tried to claim their small piece of that pie, especially with the giant seemingly losing its footing. One of those new challengers is, strangely enough, drone king DJI. Its rumored DJI OSMO Action camera is expected to arrive in a few days and this info dump could set a favorable tone for its debut.

Galaxy Note 10 might not get Samsung’s new 64MP camera

Galaxy Note 10 might not get Samsung’s new 64MP camera

Samsung just recently announced two new camera sensors from its rather young ISOCELL brand. One of them was a 64 megapixel image sensor that seemed to be clearly aimed to one-up Sony's 48 megapixel IMX586. Naturally, it seemed to be a perfect fit for the premium flagship that Samsung still has to announce later this year. According to one leak source, however, that will not be the case, putting Samsung's commitment to mobile photography into question.

Samsung 64MP ISOCELL camera sensor want to shakeup the market

Samsung 64MP ISOCELL camera sensor want to shakeup the market

If you thought Sony's 48 megapixel IMX586 sensor was insane, you'll probably think Samsung has lost it even more. Given how competitive the smartphone camera market has become, however, it's only natural that it tries to topple the top dog, Huawei. The company has just announced a 64 megapixel image sensor, probably the largest in the market, not only to prepare its upcoming Galaxy Note 10 for competition but maybe even beat Sony at its own game.

Pixel 3a camera vs 3: Identical hardware

Pixel 3a camera vs 3: Identical hardware

The differences between the Pixel 3a and the Pixel 3 are few and far between - and with their cameras, they're almost indistinguishable. Both devices have a 12.2 MP camera f/1.8, 28mm (wide), 1/2.55", 1.4µm, OIS, dual pixel PDAF on their backside. They might even have the same image processor - stay tuned for an update on that front. For now, courage - and photos that are probably pretty gosh-darned good.

DJI action camera tipped to compete with GoPro HERO products

Chinese drone company DJI is developing its own action camera, according to a new leak, one that will allegedly compete with GoPro's flagship HERO models. The camera is expected to be based on the company's existing OSMO Pocket super-wide handheld camera, and one image has leaked showing what the model may look like. DJI has not confirmed the camera's existence, however.
