Relonch hands-on: Subscription camera meets AI Photoshop whizz

Relonch hands-on: Subscription camera meets AI Photoshop whizz

For most people, their wedding day is the only time in life that they get the benefit of a professional photographer, but Relonch wants to change all that. 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.

Light L16 camera begins mass production in Q2 2017, will ship soon after

Light's L16 camera, a model that features many small lenses and image sensors to capture multiple shots of the same subject, will enter mass production in the second quarter of 2017, the company has announced.

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.

GoPro Karma drone’s Grip now on sale by its lonesome self

GoPro Karma drone’s Grip now on sale by its lonesome self

We’re still not sure when the Karma, GoPro’s first ever and ill-fated drone, will return. IF it will return, which may be in doubt given GoPro’s financial troubles. But while the Karma itself may not be here, or may never be again, it’s legacy will live on. Or at least part of it. GoPro has just made available the Karma’s stabilizer as a standalone handheld product, the Grip. Perhaps it’s a last ditch effort to salvage what it can from the Karma, by selling the feature that made the drone quite impressive.

There’s a Coca-Cola Selfie Bottle because why not

Like it or not, and some definitely don’t, selfies are here to stay. It has become almost second nature to some people, particularly millennials, who, for better or for worse, want to document and share their personal involvement, or at least presence, in some of life’s most important and fleeting events. Like chugging down some Coca-Cola. But taking a selfie while drinking something isn’t exactly the most comfortable thing to do.

Whether intentionally or not, and especially the latter, you can say goodbye to shaky cam on your phone with the Vimble S, the latest three-axis gimbal that promises to produce smooth, steady photos and videos, regardless of the jitters.
