ExoLens’ Zeiss lens case for iPhone 7 offers swappable optics

The iPhone already has a reputation for photography, but ExoLens wants to crank that up with its Zeiss-lens-toting case for the iPhone 7 arriving in stores.

Peak Design Everyday Backpack 20L Review

Peak Design Everyday Backpack 20L Review

It's fair to say that Peak Design started something big with the Everyday Backpack. The company, already beloved for its Everyday Messenger bags among other camera accessories, set out to raise $500k on Kickstarter back in 2016; it ended up pulling in more than $6.5m, then nearly $700k more in a second preorder phase. Clearly, the Everyday Backpack tapped into something photographers in particular were looking for, but as I discovered myself there's more to the bag than just that.

Unlike many action cameras, though, the Cameo360 packs a pair of lenses into its small body to offer 360-degree 4K video recording.

Moment 2.0 makes your iPhone, Pixel feel more like a camera

Moment 2.0 makes your iPhone, Pixel feel more like a camera

The Google Pixel and Apple iPhone are often touted as the best of the best when it comes to smartphone cameras but, true or not, they’re not exactly perfect yet. Some compromises have to be made for the sake of cost and portability, relying on after-market accessories to fill in the gaps. Wide-angle lenses, for example, are the most common ones. Moment 2.0 aims to do just that, but it’s not simply slapping on a lens. It is also slapping on a case on your phone to slap the lens onto.

DxOMark says Huawei P10 has chops but not the best

Gone are the days when only Apple, Samsung, and Sony were considered to have the best smartphone cameras in town. It might surprise some that Huawei is now among the top contenders in that area as well. It’s definitely taking photography seriously and that has seemingly paid off in the Huawei P10. Based on DxOMark’s extensive review, the 2017 flagship gets a score of 87, placing it in third behind the Google Pixel and HTC 10, but above the iPhone 7. It’s also a huge jump from the Huawei P9, which got a score of 80 only, which helped put Huawei on the global smartphone map.

Insta360 Air now on sale to turn Android, PCs into 360 cameras

It wasn’t too long ago when 360-degree cameras were the hot thing in both mobile and photography spaces. You had the Samsung Gear 360, the LG 360 CAM, the Ricoh Theta, and, of course, the Insta360 Nano. That last one, however, was restricted to the iPhone 6 and latter only. So late last year, Insta360 went to Indiegogo to give Android users their due, the spherical Insta360 Air. After a successful run, the highly portable and, dare we say affordable, 360-degree camera is now available for purchase in the US and Europe, potentially turning anyone into 360-degree artist.

iPhone 7 and Pixel owners need this Lightroom Mobile HDR update

Adobe has given iPhone, Google Pixel, and Samsung Galaxy S7 photographers a must-have reason to get Lightroom, with a new HDR mode that promises DSLR-style results. The update to Lightroom Mobile - version 2.7 for iOS, and version 2.3 for Android - released today includes a raw HDR capture mode, for high-dynamic range photos that should far exceed what the native HDR feature in the default camera app can deliver. However, not everyone can enjoy it.
