Reflex SLR camera project appears to have come to an end

Reflex SLR camera project appears to have come to an end

Anyone who follows projects that begin on Kickstarter knows that just because the project meets its funding goal doesn't mean the product will ever come to market. History is full of crowd-sourced funding projects that raise the money the developers say they need to build products only for the product never to surface. This appears to be the case with an SLR camera project that was first funded in late 2017.

Galaxy Z Fold 3 cameras blocked if bootloader unlocked

The newest in Samsung Galaxy foldable devices appears to have a few more locks on it than some past devices. As discovered this week by intrepid software engineers at XDA, a bootloader unlock of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 disables said device's cameras. This isn't the first time this has happened on an Android smartphone, but it's pretty rare.

Scan Dimension Sol Pro 3D scanner: Is this the one?

Scan Dimension Sol Pro 3D scanner: Is this the one?

A new 3D scanner appeared in the release schedule at Scan Dimension with an aim for top performance in a desktop sized machine. This is just the latest in a line of very, very similar sorts of machines. They're small enough (and hopefully inexpensive enough) to allow creative users to place a small object on a rotating stand, press SCAN, and see that object appear in 3D space on their desktop machine. Now we get to see if the SOL PRO is up to the task.

Future OPPO phones will be using new under-screen camera and RGBW sensor

Future OPPO phones will be using new under-screen camera and RGBW sensor

With the Galaxy Z Fold 3, Samsung officially joined the bandwagon circling around under-display cameras (UDC), alternatively called under-screen or under-panel cameras. It isn't the first to jump on it, though, with ZTE stealing the thunder by launching the first UDC-equipped phone last year. OPPO, however, was also one of the first to actually get its R&D engine running to create the perfect under-screen camera implementation.

While OPPO isn't announcing yet when that will finally be available in a smartphone, it is revealing some of the imaging technologies that will be arriving on smartphones in the next six to seven months.

Pixel 6 camera could be a huge upgrade in more ways than one

Pixel 6 camera could be a huge upgrade in more ways than one

Google seemed to have beaten Apple at being stingy when it came to camera upgrades. Ever since the OG Pixel half a decade ago, Google barely upgraded the line's main camera, preferring to rely on software magic to compensate. As indicated by its new design and new processor, the Pixel 6 is a marked departure from its predecessors. A teardown of Google's Camera app for Android 12 now suggests that the same will apply to the phone's main camera in a very big way.

OPPO Under-Screen Camera promises to fix the full-screen phone problem

OPPO Under-Screen Camera promises to fix the full-screen phone problem

ZTE just released its second-gen under-display camera (UDC) in the ZTE Axon 30 5G, but the jury's still out on whether it is indeed a worthy upgrade. In the meantime, however, it might be getting some competition. Samsung, for example, is expected to debut its own UDC implementation next week in the Galaxy Z Fold 3. Today, however, OPPO is also revealing what it says is its third-gen Under-Screen Camera (USC), claiming to have addressed all the flaws attached to such technology.

Galaxy S22 could come with a 50MP RGBW camera sensor

The battle over the best smartphone for photography is far from over, especially with the Huawei P50 Pro once again tilting the tides in the embattled Chinese company's favor. Smartphone cameras have gotten larger, more sophisticated, and sometimes a little bit insane, but some improvements don't always come from upcoming or future technologies. Samsung's phones have shown arguably positive performance in that arena, and its next Galaxy S22 flagship could be taking lessons from the past and use an RGBW imaging sensor to improve its chances in the future.

iPhone QR code scanner demo solidifies Apple support

iPhone QR code scanner demo solidifies Apple support

The QR code system was originally invented back in the year 1994, pre-dating the smartphone by a decade and a half. The QR code (Quick Response code) that was once mainly aimed at identifying products for stores in a way that was more versatile than the more popular barcode system - UPC barcodes. It doesn't take much more than a camera and a bit of software support to allow a smartphone to use a QR code - so why isn't it a more popular system of communication?
