Google Lens: Assistant and Photos get a super smart update

This week Google revealed that they'll be making a new push for their "Google Lens" initiative (and eventual app integration). Much like what we've seen in the past with things like Google Goggles, Google Lens is about to make the things Android smartphones see - recognizable. As Google suggested today, Google Lens will be a "set of vision-based computing capabilities."

Galaxy S8 is still only second best to Pixel, says DxOMark

Galaxy S8 is still only second best to Pixel, says DxOMark

The Google Pixel, the tech giant's first ever "made by Google" phone, burst into the market with a shockingly good camera. So good that it has topped DxOMark's charts months after its launch. If you expected that the most recent batch of new smartphones would be toppling it, think again. DxOMark has just given the Samsung Galaxy S8 an extensive testing and, while praiseworthy, the smartphone falls one point short of even tying with the Pixel.

FilmLab app turns film negatives into full-size color images using a phone

FilmLab app turns film negatives into full-size color images using a phone

There's a good chance you or your parents and grandparents have piles of old film negatives containing snapshots from your childhood or the more distant past. These negatives likely contain photos that would be fun to check out but none worth the hassle and cost of actually getting them developed (otherwise you'd have already done it). Here to fill that quasi-need is FilmLab, a new app-in-development that near-instantly transforms a film negative into a full-size and reasonably high quality digital color image.

Phase One IQ3 100MP Achromatic is a $50k beast for pro photographers

Phase One IQ3 100MP Achromatic is a $50k beast for pro photographers

Phase One has launched its new IQ3 100MP Achromatic, a camera with a 101-megapixel sensor and an ISO topping out at 51,200. This model captures black-and-white medium-format photographs including light beyond the visible spectrum. This is due to the sensor's lack of an infrared filter and color filter array, and the end result is, among other things, 'the highest level of details, nuance and luminance,' according to Phase One. Such features don't come cheap, however.

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.

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.
