Insanely beautiful image of the Milky Way took 12 years to complete

GoPro mobile app is now Quik, adds private feeds to music video creation

GoPro is perhaps best known for its action cams, a market that is now full of lookalikes and clones. The company has since then expanded its product portfolio to 360-degree cameras, accessories, and more. It also has a suite of mobile apps, most of them geared towards supporting GoPro's cameras. That, too, is also expanding and GoPro is rebranding its old mobile app into GoPro Quik, bringing some new features to a very old app.

Leica D-Lux 7 Street Kit is made for spontaneity

Leica D-Lux 7 Street Kit is made for spontaneity

In the tech and especially the smartphone world, Leica is perhaps better known for its partnerships with the likes of Huawei. Of course, it is also a popular camera maker and it launched the D-Lux 7 compact over two years ago to bring some of the smartphone goodness back to cameras. That said, the D-Lux 7 still lacked the immediacy of a smartphone camera, a flaw that the new Leica D-Lux 7 Street Kit is attempting to address by bundling a few accessories.

Insta360 GO 2 action camera’s magic trick is to be invisible

Insta360 GO 2 action camera’s magic trick is to be invisible

Action cameras are a dime a dozen these days but almost all of them share the same blocky and conspicuous designs of the very first generation of action cams. They do their job of recording critical footage, be it for sports, enjoyment, or even evidence, but they can also sometimes get in the way because of their bulk and heft. Insta360 made a name for itself with its discreet 360-degree cameras and, later on, its own line of action cameras. With the new Insta360 GO 2, the company is bringing all its hard-earned lessons into a tiny package that almost disappears from view.

Samsung ISOCELL 2.0 could cram more pixels into an image sensor

Samsung ISOCELL 2.0 could cram more pixels into an image sensor

Before it became a brand of its own, Samsung's ISOCELL was first a new kind of image sensor technology that aimed to solve the color crosstalk between pixels in a regular BSI (Backside Illuminated) sensor used in almost all digital cameras, including those on smartphones. That proved to be highly successful, at least in Samsung's view, and it is now taking it to the next level with ISOCELL 2.0. This new iteration promises not only to improve light absorption but, in the long run, also allow for smaller pixels to be packed in larger amounts on the same sensor size.

Galaxy S21 Ultra DxOMark score is surprisingly lower than expected

Galaxy S21 Ultra DxOMark score is surprisingly lower than expected

Although it isn't exactly terrible, Samsung's performance in the mobile photography department can be described as inconsistent at best. It does take great photos and videos but, at least as far as DxOMark is concerned, it simply isn't the best by a long shot. Every new generation of the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note flagships are expected to bring improvements in that arena but that didn't seem to work for the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G which actually fared worse than its predecessor.

Google Photos High Quality might not be near-identical to original

Google Photos High Quality might not be near-identical to original

When Google launched its Google Photos cloud storage, not to be confused with the app of the same name, it was hailed as the ultimate way to save space on your phone and preserve your digital memories almost forever. It came with a rather generous offer of nearly unlimited photo storage space, provided they uploaded only in High Quality. Nothing lasts forever, as they say, and it seems that Google is revising its earlier statements in favor of taking up more space towards a Google One subscription.
