Entry-level HERO camera confirmed by GoPro

Well, that didn't take long: less than a day after a low-cost GoPRO HERO leaked out, the company has now confirmed its existence. As the rumor suggested, this will be an entry-level camera aimed at folks who want something a little more robust than the camera on their smartphone. Obviously, the HERO line has always been fairly affordable - especially the HERO5 at $299 - but with this new entry-level HERO, GoPro is really looking to remove price as a barrier to entry for some people.

While the two are almost worlds apart, especially in price, they do have one thing in common. Both are giving the bigger players reason to be worried by grabbing high scores on DxOMark’s ladder, including the Huawei P20 Pro’s top-ranking grade.

Google acquisition of Lytro tipped for light field goodies

Google acquisition of Lytro tipped for light field goodies

It would appear that Google may be attempting to buy the imaging startup Lytro. The company Lytro was founded back in 2006 and began work with a rather boxy-shaped camera for consumers. This camera, the Lytro camera, was meant to be able to capture images in a way that allowed the user to re-focus even after the photo was captured. Now Google might want some of that technology for their very own.

Google Pixel 2 Motion Photos magic revealed

The Pixel and Pixel 2 phones, especially the Pixel 2 XL, have been faulted for many things. But most owners are willing to forgive Google its lapses because of one thing: the phones’ unbelievably good camera performance. One of the tricks that Google has to spice up the Pixel 2’s camera is Motion Photos and now the company is sharing some of the secrets behind it. Unsurprisingly, it has a good amount of machine learning and sophisticated algorithms involved.

Galaxy S9 DxOMark score is the highest so far

The Samsung marketing machine is definitely in full force. Just yesterday, DisplayMate proclaimed the Galaxy S9 to have the best smartphone display ever (at least in the OLED category). Now DxOMark is coming out with its usual review, the Galaxy S9+ specifically this time.

Olympus firmware updates breathe new life into old cameras

Olympus firmware updates breathe new life into old cameras

The digital camera and smartphone markets seem to have one thing in common. To get new features, you have to wait for or buy new models. That goes even when said features aren’t exactly dependent on newer hardware. Olympus is painting itself as a sort of revolutionary in that regard. Instead of producing and selling a new model with very small incremental changes, it is instead rolling out firmware updates for the OM-D E-M1 Mark II, OM-D E-M5 Mark II, and PEN-F, making them feel almost like new cameras all over again.

Google Clips available now – but AI camera isn’t impressing reviewers [Updated]

Google Clips available now – but AI camera isn’t impressing reviewers [Updated]

Google Clips, the company's smart camera, is finally shipping, though whether it's worth spending $249 on an AI to take your photos seems to be questionable. Announced last year alongside the Pixel 2, the standalone camera promises to use the same smarts that power Google Photos to snap stills and short videos of the entertaining things that kids and pets do to earn their keep, allowing you to stay in the moment in the process.

ShiftCam 2.0 and ProLens: truly mobile iPhone pro photography

ShiftCam 2.0 and ProLens: truly mobile iPhone pro photography

Lens clips for iPhones and others smartphones are nothing new. They offered interchangeable lenses, a feature that still escapes even the most advanced smartphone camera. They all, however, have the same design disadvantage. You have to attach the lenses every time you use them and detach them when done. Not only do you run the risk of losing those lenses, that’s also precious seconds lost trying to set it all up. Last year, startup Shiftcam introduced a case and lens system that resolved all those. Now they’re back with ShiftCam 2.0, a more refined and more powerful version that won’t make it look like you have an armored phone in your pocket.
