Pixel 2 camera app APK ripped for older Google Androids

The Google Pixel 2 is almost here, and with it will come an improved camera. Google's focus on making the camera better should be obvious given the fact that it was awarded DxOMark's highest rating ever for a smartphone shooter, but improvements to the camera itself are only one part of the equation. The Pixel 2 will also be shipping with a new version of the Google Camera app, which adds some new features that will be handy for the smartphone photographers of the world.

iPhone X release supply may slim as Apple refines TrueDepth

iPhone X release supply may slim as Apple refines TrueDepth

A report from Taipei suggested today that the iPhone X is struggling with a bit of a production delay. Sources suggest that this delay has to do with manufacturers struggling to perfect the dot projector portion of the 3D sensor setup in the iPhone X's sensor array. Analysts believe that while Apple's manufacturing speed at the launch of iPhone X may not be ideal, but mid-October remains the go-date for mass production.

Casio GZE-1 action camera looks like part of Iron Man’s armor

Casio GZE-1 action camera looks like part of Iron Man’s armor

You have to give Casio props for its latest camera. While most smart camera's are almost literal black boxes following GoPro's initial design, the GZE-1, a.k.a. the G'z EYE, looks like something straight out of a movie set. Iron Man fans might see some similarities in one of the super hero's props, but Casio's faithful customers might also see some resemblance to the company's G-SHOCK sports watches. That's no accident either, because the G'z EYE is, for all intents and purposes, the G-SHOCK EYE action camera.

Samsung’s new ISOCELL image sensors could be in the Galaxy S9

Samsung’s new ISOCELL image sensors could be in the Galaxy S9

Before Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 8 and its first ever dual camera system, it prepared the road by launching its imaging sensors into a distinct and marketable brand of its own: Samsung ISOCELL. Following that pattern, Samsung is announcing two new members of its four-tier product line, the ISOCELL Fast 2L9 and the ISOCELL Slim 2X7. Designed to fit in constrained spaces, these sensors might be a good fit for the shrinking space around front-facing cameras, possibly in the upcoming Galaxy S9.

Yashica Y35 digital camera is a toy that tries hard to be retro

Yashica Y35 digital camera is a toy that tries hard to be retro

It's been quite a while since we've heard from once famous Japanese camera maker Yashica. It's finally jumping back into the scene but in the oddest way possible, through Kickstarter. It's pitching a digital camera that is a throwback to its iconic Electro 35, but the Y35 also does it in a completely strange, and perhaps insane, way. The purely digital camera makes use of, and can't even work without, "pretend" film whose sole purpose is to provide the ISO and format for the camera. Pretty much like real film, except there is no film involved.

Google Pixel 2’s camera gets a making-of video of its own

Google Pixel 2’s camera gets a making-of video of its own

This week the folks behind Nat and Friends (at Google) released a video all about the Google Pixel 2's camera. This insider look is unlike anything any other publication was or is able to produce, largely because of the long-term access being a Google employee affords a video-maker like Nat. There's also an accompanying video that's been published this week that's a bit like the mini-tour (of the Enchanted Highway) we did last year with the first Pixel.

RED MONSTRO 8K VV sensor boasts monster camera chops

RED MONSTRO 8K VV sensor boasts monster camera chops

No, this isn't yet RED's much hyped but also very elusive Hydrogen holographic smartphone. But make no mistake, the new MONSTRO 8K VV is just as dreamy. That is, if you're any sort of a professional digital photographer. The name says it all. Boasting of a full-frame sensor capable of capturing 8K resolutions, the MONSTRO 8K VV is not only the latest but also possibly the greatest BRAIN in RED's line of customizable WEAPON cameras.

Essential Phone update promises a better camera

Essential Phone update promises a better camera

The Essential is probably one of the most talked about Android smartphones of 2017. And that's not all in a good way. Like any small startup trying to make its way through a congested smartphone market, Essential, co-founded and backed by Android godfather Andy Rubin, put the hype machine into full gear. Arriving more than a month later than promised, the Essential PH-1 delivered on some of its promises but flopped on others. One such example is its camera, which is now getting a software update that promises to dramatically improve its performance.

Google Clips is one more camera lens for Pixel 2

Google Clips is one more camera lens for Pixel 2

This morning Google revealed a new camera to work with the Google Pixel 2. This device is a tiny rounded-edge square with a single lens and a shutter button. This camera was built primarily for kids and pets - or this first version is, anyway. Inside is an artificial intelligence engine that looks for moments that seem most relevant to you, the user.

Galaxy Note 8 ties with iPhone 8 Plus on DxOMark camera list

Galaxy Note 8 ties with iPhone 8 Plus on DxOMark camera list

It wasn't too long ago, in fact just last week, when Apple reclaimed its throne in the smartphone camera kingdom. But while the iPhone 8 Plus still sits at the top of DxOMark's list, it now has to share that spot with the Galaxy Note 8. That said, while Samsung's latest and greatest scores the highest in still photos, DxOmark was more impressed by its zooming capabilities than by any other feature.

Google Camera with HDR+ port now has RAW support, more controls

Google Camera with HDR+ port now has RAW support, more controls

When Google launched the Pixel phones, it somewhat crossed the fine line that separated it from Android OEMs. While mostly still remaining true to its open culture, it started to keep some thing exclusive to its "Made by Google" phones. This being Android, however, it didn't take long for enterprising developers to rip those apart and emancipate them for other worthy Android smartphones. One prime example is the Google Camera app which, on the Pixel, had a much coveted HDR+ feature. That has since been ported for other phones and, now, has been updated with a few sweet features to boot.
