Panasonic GH5 launch date unofficially revealed

Panasonic GH5 launch date unofficially revealed

Back at Photokina last September, Panasonic revealed four new LUMIX cameras. Among the four, the GH5 received some distinction, not because of the camera itself but because, unlike the others, it was still marked as "coming soon" and remained shrouded in mystery. That mystery, however, might soon be coming to an end if the latest leaked information proves to be true. Well, "soon" here means "later than earlier anticipated" as the Panasonic GH5 is now expected to start shipping in March, rather than in January.

Sony Xperia XZ DxOMark verdict: great but not prefect

Sony Xperia XZ DxOMark verdict: great but not prefect

Many high-end smartphones are moving towards using dual cameras to achieve details and performance previously unattainable on mobile devices. Even Apple has jumped on that train. But just because you have two cameras doesn't mean you'll do better. That is something Sony tried to prove with the Xperia XZ and DxOMark seemingly agrees.

LG V20, Huawei Mate 9 tied in DxOMark ranking

LG V20, Huawei Mate 9 tied in DxOMark ranking

Don't worry, Google. The Pixel remains the top dog in DxOMark's list. The LG V20 and Huawei Mate 9, despite their impressive specs and improved performance, don't even come close. Under DxOMark's usual battery of tests, the two scored the exact same 85, differing only in the details. While both sported dual lens cameras, they each interpreted the feature differently. Sadly, neither was able to achieve the pinnacle of mobile photography that itS peers are trying just as hard to grab.

Snapchat Group Chat vs Snapchat Spectacles – will they work?

This week the folks at Snap are bringing Snapchat Groups to the chat platform. This system allows up to 16 people to chat in the same room - almost like a chatroom! It's like we're back in the year 1998 and America Online has allowed us to go online and be in message groups about topics we love and chatrooms that are still in their infancy - only now, we do it with photos and brief video clips instead of text.

Pairing their leather-wrapped, control-scarce 291 camera with the smarts of a virtual Photoshop pro in the cloud, the company's goal is to bring you out from behind the lens and back into the moment, only without sacrificing great pictures in the process. Question is, can that be worth a not-inconsiderable monthly subscription? I slung a blue suede camera around my neck for a week to find out.

Casio Exilim FR110H camera is a 1.9MP ultra low-light snapper

Casio Exilim FR110H camera is a 1.9MP ultra low-light snapper

Casio has rolled out a new digital camera for specialty photography and at a glance it sounds like a camera from years and years ago. It has a scant 1.9MP resolution, but Casio says that those pixels are extra large and meant specifically for gathering light in low-light situations. The image sensors is a back-illuminated CMOS sensor and you only have to look at the image of the lion to see how much better at low-light photography the FR110H is than Casio's other cameras.
