Polaroid Fits an HD camera Into a One Inch Cube

This little video camera was spotted at CES and captures video at 720p onto microSD card. Its lens covers 120 degrees for wide-angle shooting and it's waterproof up to two metres. A built-in microphone captures audio. The lens will also capture still images at up to five megapixels and we have to say that this little camera does seem remarkably difficult to dislike. It'll go on sale in the coming summer for $99 in the US. ...

Zoom In: Nokia Lumia 1020 Review

41. Forty-one million pixels. Forty-one million pixels in one camera. Ponder on this for a moment. Your current phone probably captures eight (my phone too). Your SLR probably sports about 16. Nokia's Lumia 1020 is a smartphone that captures more than all of those 'proper' cameras put together. It captures pictures based on a 41 million pixels sensor. But does the smartphone world revolves around ultra-performing cameras? Notwithstanding its camera ...

Nokia Refocus: Lytro-Software for Your Lumia Phone

Nokia introduced some new imaging technology which allows you to fiddle with the depth field of your photos. Baptised "Refocus", this new app will let you refocus an image after it’s been taken, choosing to highlight a foreground object or the background, for example. With a Facebook plug-in, users will also be able to do the same inside Facebook, with each others images. In other words, it’s doing in software what the very-fashionable Lytro cameras ...

Nokia Mocks the iPhone 5 Camera

For those who don't know, although it may be illegal in Lebanon for companies to demote or mention their competitors, it is highly encouraged across seas. Nokia's recent PR stunt is to promote that they are about Quality rather than Quantity. In the ad Nokia tries to show the viewers what an 8.7-megapixel camera, Carl Zeiss lens, and dual LED flash camera can do compared to the Iphone 5's camera. It seems to me that Nokia is clearly admitting that ...

The Samsung Galaxy S4 ZOOM

Is it a phone, is it a camera? No,it is the Galaxy S4 ZOOM. Samsung has taken another leap and created the first mobile phone with an optical zoom. And they didn't start slow, nope they went all 10x optical zoom. Now I haven't had the chance to actually grab the phone yet, but I thought I'd let you know what I found out about this so that you'd have a clue once it is in the market. For many people, who like me, are obsessed with photo quality having ...

Kogeto’s Pitch Black Dot Review

Here's a smartphone accessory you won't typically be looking for. No it's not a protective case, nor some fancy earphones or Bluetooth speakers. Kogeto's Pitch Black Dot is a camera attachment for your iPhone 4 or 4S that is far from being a necessity. But it is definitely cool. Cooler than some other gimmicky gadgets available out there. The Dot will help you not getting dizzy from spinning around in circles in an attempt to capture a 360-degree ...

The Next Generation of Xenon Flashes for Mobiles is Here

Mobile phones' photography has become an integrated element of our daily lives, to a degree where one of the most important features a manufacturer focuses on when updating and releasing a new device is the power of its camera (as seen from the focus in the past years on updating the number of megapixels and the newly announced ultrapixel technology of HTC). But what about the flash that supports this aforementioned camera? I don't remember the ...

Social Media Wars: Twitter Releases In-App Photo Filters

So Instagram decided to stop letting users directly view photos on Twitter. Retaliation: Twitter announced a new version of its iOS and Android clients that adds Instagram-style photo filters. And that was but the latest smash volley in an escalating fight between the two companies: after Twitter revoked access to Instagram users wishing to add their Twitter contacts in July, Instagram responded by reporting more US-based daily mobile users than ...

What Is the Future of Kodak?

A quick leap back in time, some 25 years ago: Eastman Kodak and Polaroid practically dominated the U.S. market for photographic film. Photo film segment was huge: printed photography was at the peak of Technology back then, people rushed all over it, and business-wise the industry had good profit margins.  Kodak used to sell about a billion rolls of film in the United States each year twenty years ago. Last year, it lost 98 percent of its core ...

Photography. Evolved

Today, with the availability of good cameras in our mobile phones, we take photography for granted; completely forgetting that at some point in history, taking a photograph was just a dream. People started to capture their surroundings and portray people through paintings and drawings and it was only restricted to royalty. Other than the fact that real talented artists were rare, a drawing is far from being a photograph so it was never the same. ...
