Samsung Galaxy Note 8 release 2017: time tips “2x” details

This week details in a recently-published set of design files from Samsung suggest that the Galaxy Note 8's backside will have two cameras. This information should not come as a surprise to those watching this space extremely closely - there was just a tip about this same sort of thing just a few days ago. Now with the return of some documents first filed all the way back in November of 2016, it's time to start hypothesizing in earnest.

Camarada syncs multiple phones into one 360-degree camera

Camarada syncs multiple phones into one 360-degree camera

VR is the new hot thing but creating 360-degree content is still not as easy as it can be. Sure, there are now cheaper 360-degree cameras, but that still requires an investment. If you're out cash, however, you're also out of luck. Luckily, the Google folks over at Android Experiments thought up Camarada, the camera armada app. It basically enlists the help of nearby Android phones in order to form an army of cameras that can record a single footage of either stereoscopic 3D or full 360-degree videos. And all you need are friends. Or multiple Android phones.

CROZ is a do-it-yourself digital camera for minimalists

A new digital camera has hit the market, but it's not like the others. CROZ is a small digital camera powered by a couple AAA batteries and, most notably, it is sold disassembled in a kit. Buyers have to assemble CROZ themselves, the end result of which is a functional camera nestled within a clear case. Though you get all the convenience of a digital camera (that is, instant transfers to a computer), it includes an old-school feel by eliminating the LCD.

This camera is so fast, it makes light stand still

This camera is so fast, it makes light stand still

Sony might boast of a 1,000 fps CMOS and Samsung might flaunt its 240 fps slo-mo on the Galaxy S8. Neither, however, has anything on this camera that could probably even catch The Flash in action. Besting even scientific high-speed cameras and their 100,000 fps rates, this image capturing device developed by Lund University researchers can record video at an mind-blowing rate of five trillion images per second. In short, 5,000,000,000,000 fps.

Acer Holo 360 is an Android camera… but also a phone

The Acer Holo 360 camera was unveiled today at a special event held by Acer and broadcast around the world. This device works with Wi-Fi connectivity and can also connect to mobile data (LTE speed) with a SIM card. The device itself is not a phone, necessarily, but it does run Android and is able to make calls without being connected to a separate device - without being connected to a proper smartphone, that is to say.

Google Pixel camera’s low-light abilities are stunning in new analysis

Google's Pixel smartphone is notable for several reasons, not the least of which is its incredible low-light camera performance. We've seen the camera put to the test multiple times, but few analyses compare to the one recently completed by Google Research itself. In the tests, the Pixel camera was able to capture stunning shots of space using only starlight, among other things. The Nexus 6P was also tested, and one shot rivaled a DSLR's photo of the same subject.

Rigiet handheld stabilizer review

Rigiet handheld stabilizer review

Smartphone cameras have become much more than just tools of last resort. But, try as they might, there are still things they will not be able to do well because of the constraints of space and physics. Low-light performance is one, stabilization is another. While even a little OIS helps, you'll inevitably need some outside help. That is where Rigiet comes in. Dubbed as the most advanced stabilizer for phones and GoPros, this portable gimbal is an extension of your own hand and arm, moving, bending, and holding steady in ways your own biological limbs cannot.

Intsta360 Pro adds 8K to the equation, now on pre-order

Pretty soon, there will be no excuse for anyone and everyone not to create 360-degree content. Of course, that doesn't mean that everyone will be able to enjoy those via VR headsets, but at least modern browsers can give them a foretaste of that. 360-degree cameras are becoming more and more accessible, with companies like Insta360 putting out portable and affordable cameras. The Insta360 Pro, however, isn't that. Looking more like a big ball and UFO, the Insta360 Pro, with its 8K capability, has "professional" written all over it. And it even has the price tag to prove it.

Canon EOS C300 Mark II CFast card bug: here’s the workaround

Canon has detailed a new bug that is affecting its EOS C300 Mark II cinema camera: those who update to firmware 1.0.6.1.00 may discover the camera experiences a problem if a VPG130 CFast card is used at the same time as a different type of CFast card.
