FrontRow camera pendant gives lifelogging another try

FrontRow camera pendant gives lifelogging another try

Action cameras and live streaming have become so in fashion that the social and the tech savvy broadcast nearly every facet of their real life for the public, or even semi-public, to see. This, however, isn’t completely new. One could even say that the seeds of this new trend have been planted a little over four years ago by what was then called “lifelogging”. That is something that this new FrontRow camera accessory seems to want to bring back, despite lifelogging having abruptly dropped from the scene. It’s advantage? A more social generation, more sophisticated technology, and four years of lessons learned.

Next Insta360 camera could orbit around you

Next Insta360 camera could orbit around you

As fancy and entertaining as 360-cameras might be, they all suffer a flaw due to their very nature. They can capture the world around it but they can never capture what’s at the center of that world. That is, they don’t record the immediate area around where they stand. If Insta360’s latest teaser has any hint of accuracy in it, the camera maker’s next product might turn that limitation on its head. While the camera still can’t see its own body, this time it is the one revolving around the center of the scene looking inside rather than watching the rest of the world move around it.

Google Camera mod adds HDR+, 1080p 60fps (APK Download)

This week one intrepid user by the name of AmirZ enabled the Google Camera app to expand its abilities. With a bit of editing to the app's code, the Google Camera can now work with 60fps and 1080p at the same time, just like the Google Pixel. The user responsible for this decompiled the app, implemented a code change from NX Camera, and recompiled using APKTool 2.2.4, signing with his own personal key.

Nikon D850 announcement could finally happen this week

Admittedly, not everyone is obsessed with smartphones or what will be taking place in the coming weeks. Some, particularly photographers, might be more interested in what may take place as early as this week. While Nikon has indeed confirmed that the D850 full-frame DSLR is coming, it never really said when. Based on a leak internal slide, however, that could very well happen this Wednesday already. That or at least get the ball rolling on the Nikon D850’s launch.

Google Pixel’s camera software comes to other Android phones

Google Pixel’s camera software comes to other Android phones

The camera on Google's Pixel quite possibly takes the best photos of an smartphone, Android or otherwise. But it's not just the hardware like the lens or image stabilization, the Pixel also features software advancements that help make images the best they can be, especially with the phone's HDR+ mode.

LG V30 camera to have f/1.6 aperture, crystal clear lens

LG V30 camera to have f/1.6 aperture, crystal clear lens

Ever since the LG V10 and perhaps even before that, LG has always prided itself for offering multimedia creators some of the best tools they can fit in their pockets. And while it’s arguable that LG has been able to deliver on those promises to a certain degree, it has easily been overshadowed by Samsung, Google, and now even HTC. For the LG V30, however, it is pulling all the stops by giving it a camera with the largest aperture and the clearest glass lens available in the smartphone market to date.

iPhone 8 front camera has 4K 60p video recording chops

Is the HomePod-iPhone gravy going to run out soon? Maybe, but at least it hasn’t slowed down to a trickle just yet. While most have been focused on the “Pearl ID” face recognition features of the upcoming iPhone 8, there are also a few other features that can be gleaned from the smart speaker’s leaked firmware. The latest seem to dwell on the front camera’s unusual support for recording video at 4K 60 fps, which could further cement Apple’s camera prowess for a certain former Google SVP.

This camera tech could make Android the photographer’s choice

Never mind swiping through endless filters trying to find the perfect Instagram effect on your latest photo: Google and MIT want to build that right into the viewfinder. Teams from the search giant and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have been collaborating on a system that promises automatic retouching of images in real-time, giving pro-photographer style results before you've even hit the capture button. It's the latest example of how machine learning can not only improve everyday tasks but cut our current reliance on the cloud.

iPhone camera upgrade tipped with iOS 11 SmartCam

iPhone camera upgrade tipped with iOS 11 SmartCam

The feature-leaking fallout from Apple's inadvertent iOS 11 goof continues, with suggestions that the iPhone camera is about to get a whole lot smarter. Apple surprised - and then delighted - code-diggers last week, when what appeared to be an internal version of iOS 11.0.2 intended for HomePod test units was mistakenly pushed out to external developers. The glee at finding unannounced elements of the upcoming smart speaker was quickly eclipsed by a gush of news about the upcoming iPhone 8.

VSCO video editing tool puts your clips on classic film stock

VSCO has added what could be a must-have video editing update to its mobile app, but there's a catch if you're not already a VSCO power user. The new video editing tool joins VSCO's existing - and well-esteemed - photo filtering, classic film recreations, and RAW capture talents. However, you'll need to be a VSCO X subscriber in order to actually access it.
