Canon EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR is built for the great outdoors

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR is built for the great outdoors

In order to stem the assault of smartphone cameras, many camera makers are trying more and more to appeal to beginners, amateurs, and selfie lovers. But if professional digital photographers are starting to feel left out, the new Cann EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR will probably remind them that they’re still the most lucrative customers. Boasting of a full-frame 30.4 megapixel sensor, 61-point Dual Pixel CMOS Autofocus, and all the bells and whistles of a very capable digital camera, the EOS 5D Mark IV lends itself well to almost any situation, but most especially when taking in nature’s breathtaking beauty and spontaneity.

Eyefi, Toshiba FlashAir will soon play nice with each other

Eyefi, Toshiba FlashAir will soon play nice with each other

Not all SD cards are created equal. While these pieces of plastic are more known for providing extra storage for digital cameras and laptops, some cards offer more. These are the so-called Wi-Fi SD cards, enabling wireless transfer from SD card to some other wirelessly connected device. And there are, in fact, two competing, ergo incompatible, brands: Eyefi and Toshiba’s FlashAir. But thanks to a licensing deal between the two, cards from one company will soon be able to work with apps and services of the other, creating one big happy Wi-Fi SD card family.

GoPro Hero 5 leaks suggest voice control is inbound

GoPro Hero 5 leaks suggest voice control is inbound

The nature of action cameras dictates where you find them: in places where pausing to mash buttons and tap screens can be inconvenient and, at times, entirely impossible. Another GoPro Hero 5 leak suggests the company understands that limitation and has taken steps to address it via the inclusion of voice commands, of which it is suggested users will be able to take photos, record videos, highlights clips, and more, all with their voice.

OPPO F1s Review

OPPO F1s Review

Just as a book is easy to judge by its cover, it's only too easy to judge smartphones by their design and their price. A device that looks like an iPhone with an almost dirt-cheap price tag? Gotta be a cheap knock-off coming from China. That is the stereotype that Chinese OEMs like OPPO face, especially when their smartphones, like the OPPO F1s, do really look like an Apple or even a Samsung flagship. But just like in real life, some things deserve a second, sometimes even third, look. Which is why we gave the OPPO F1s, the new, self-proclaimed "Selfie Expert", a thorough inspection, and we're glad we did. Read on to find out why.

Instagram Explore feed gets event video channels

Instagram is pushing the video aspect of its service via the launch of new video event channels in its Explore section. These channels highlight videos from events, whatever they may be, so that you can get up to date on the things you missed. As expected, the channels are tailored to each user, so the highlights are of things you’ll probably actually want to see, like clips from your favorite band’s concert or a sporting event.

Nikon D3400 is a lightweight DSLR for budding photographers

Nikon D3400 is a lightweight DSLR for budding photographers

Most product makers focus either on beginners or experts, but rarely do they offer a product that helps beginners become experts. The Nikon D3400, the latest DX-format DSLR from the famed camera maker, aims to be that bridge. The camera is lightweight, compact, and, more importantly, affordable so that it won't scare off beginners. But, at the same time, it is also loaded with features, and new lenses, that will help train those interested in taking their craft to the next level.

Eye-Fi back tracks, has app to put old products on life support

Eye-Fi back tracks, has app to put old products on life support

At the start of July, Eye-Fi, makers of the popular Wi-Fi enabled SD cards, made a very unpopular announcement. One that could have ended in a lawsuit of some sort along the way. While it was technically just shutting down some old servers and services, it was, in effect, bricking "legacy" Eye-Fi cards as well. Unsurprisingly, there was such an uproar among its customers that Eye-Fi really had little choice but to give in and offer those customers an imperfect but probably acceptable solution, a software that will let them continue using those products long after the have been formally declared dead.

Casio EX-FR200 combines 360-degree camera with “split” design

Casio EX-FR200 combines 360-degree camera with “split” design

With the explosion of virtual reality into the consumer scene, 360-degree cameras have become en vogue of late. To the point that traditional camera makers are trying to also cash in on the fad. Casio, for example, has just released its own 360-degree shooter, but with a special twist. Or split, rather. As a member of its rather unconventional EXILIM family, the EX-FR200 comes in two modules that can be folded or split as needed, offering different modes of shooting and different ways to operate the camera.

Moto Z camera mod leaked to be made by Hasselblad

The Moto Z, actually the Moto Z Force Droid, was already rated to have one of the best smartphone cameras in town. But who's to say it can't be made better? Moto definitely doesn't think so. As leaked before, there is still one, or two, official Moto Mod missing from the first batch that Lenovo and Moto unveiled in June. That is the "Pro" camera mod, which is now leaked to be called the "True Zoom Camera" mod and is being made by famed camera and lens maker Hasselblad, adding not just physical controls to the already competitive setup.

Povie puts a smartphone around your neck

Povie puts a smartphone around your neck

People like to take selfies and share videos with others on social media of what they are doing. The catch is that sometimes you need to have your hands free and a selfie stick doesn't do the job. This is where a new device called Povie comes in. Povie is made by a firm called Edelkrone and even if it looks really weird, it's sort of a cool idea.
