Nikon are prepping their D850 full-frame camera for launch and the reason they’re doing that is because… the company is turning 100. Nikon has made it to a century, a feat that few tech-based companies can boast of....[Read More]

Old habits die hard: HMD Nokia teaming up with Zeiss optics again

If you cast your mind back to recent years and the biggest claims made by a smartphone camera, the Nokia 1020 is probably the first thing that comes to mind. Possessed of a 41MP Carl Zeiss camera setup, this phone was camera overkill in its time and we thought that we might never see its like again.

6 reasons the Canon 6D Mark II is all the full-frame camera you need

It finally happened: Canon put the ancient EOS 6D DSLR out to pasture and replaced it with a camera worthy of 2017 AD. Take a bow, the all-new EOS 6D Mark II. Like its predecessor it’s a full-frame camera, and that bumper sensor size arguably remains its most important feature. But Canon has made a slew of refinements and tweaks that make the Mark II a very appealing prospect indeed, whether you’r...[Read More]

May makes someone an instant winner with our Instax Mini 8 giveaway

Going out with friends is great and all but you know what we dislike? Having to remember things that just happened.

Expect GoPro’s 360-degree 5.2K Fusion camera to launch by year-end

When we think of fusion we think of the word ‘nuclear’. Or Dragon Ball Z. But given how GoPro has lent its name to pretty much every action camera around, perhaps the company’s newly announced Fusion 360-degree camera will wind up claiming that word for them too. But a plain-old 360-degree camera just isn’t going to cut it. Samsung has two on the market. Nokia makes a very ...[Read More]

Samsung PT Smartcam – Home Gadget of the Year 2016

DJI Phantom 4 — Action Cam of the Year 2016

You used to have to be a qualified 747 pilot to fly a drone without it looking like someone had put a god in charge of the controls, but DJI’s Phantom 4 is so simple that even a dog could do it. Well, maybe a highly trained one. If those paws could operate a touchscreen, Jock could also use the Phantom’s new object-tracking system, which locks the camera onto a particularly gnarly subj...[Read More]

Huawei’s deepens its Leica partnership with the P10 and P10 Plus

Who says there’s no innovation left in the smartphone sector? Just about everyone, that’s who. Chinese manufacturer Huawei is having none of that naysaying, though (neither, arguably, is Motorola). Instead, it’s taking its partnership with one of the most revered names in photography — Germany’s Leica — up a notch.

Your next smartphone will shoot 1000fps ultra slow-mo videos

Get ready for some Matrix-style slow motion – without the crazy expensive camera hardware. Sony has pulled back the curtain on a new smartphone sensor, one that’ll shoot Full HD 1080p video at a frankly ridiculous 1000fps.
