KODAK Mini Shot Instant Print Camera catches up with the times

While professional digital cameras remain uncontested at the top, at least for now, point-and-shoot cameras are struggling to find their place in this smartphone-centric world. Some, like Fujifilm have found a rather profitable niche in instant print cameras, digital or otherwise, and long-time rival Kodak has jumped in as well. The latter has just announced the latest in its growing roster of Instant Print products, the KODAK Mini Shot, designed to provide instant gratification even for the smartphone generation.

CamFi Pro wireless camera controller is almost as fast as cable

CamFi Pro wireless camera controller is almost as fast as cable

Digital cameras still have an edge over smartphone when it comes to quality, but they can be slow when it comes to workflow. Sharing or printing a picture requires sending it to another computer and while built-in Wi-Fi or Bluetooth try to alleviate that, these features are often painfully slow. That is why a group of digital photography enthusiasts have come together to build the CamFi Pro, a wireless camera controller that’s so fast, you might think you’re transferring data over a USB cable instead.

OnePlus 5T camera improvements promised in a few weeks

OnePlus 5T camera improvements promised in a few weeks

It’s no longer really a surprise that OnePlus has just announced that the OnePlus 5T has become their hottest and fastest selling product, breaking their own records in just 6 hours. It even managed not to botch the launch this time. Despite all the criticisms, a $500 flagship phone with an all-screen 18:9 display is just too tempting to ignore. But, OnePlus promises that the good news doesn’t stop there, as they are already working on improvements to the camera that will roll out to owners before the holiday festivities.

Razer Phone camera promised to improve with software updates

Razer Phone camera promised to improve with software updates

There seems to be a trend among smaller smartphone makers these days. Launch a phone with a decent, or in Essential’s case, bad, camera experience and just promise improvements to come via software updates in the near or distant future. That was basically what happened to the Essential PH-1, which launched to a rather rocky start, and is now being applied to the Razer Phone as well. Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan took to Facebook to outline what lies ahead for the camera of a smartphone that is mostly geared towards gaming and entertainment consumption rather than creation.

Pixel 2 advanced camera features: don’t hold your breath

The Google Pixel 2 is currently rated as the top camera phone on DxOMark's list. And while user testimonies have mostly confirmed that, it is far from perfect. There are only so many things that can be done by software and, even then, Google has put its foot down on some less popular choices. If you're hoping Google will change its tune soon, at least when it comes to 4K 60 fps recording and advanced controls, better face the bitter reality: not gonna happen.

Moment for iPhone X photo case, lenses make the camera shine

Moment for iPhone X photo case, lenses make the camera shine

An entire niche market of clip-on lenses grew out of the middling camera capabilities of smartphones past. With dual cameras, wide angle lenses, and advanced camera sensors, you’d think that market has become redundant. Not so, if you ask Moment, who has given that market a distinct flair with the Moment 2.0 Kickstarter earlier this year. Now it has announced a new photo case and new lens set made especially for the iPhone X, raising the already high photography bar even higher.
