The upcoming “lens cameras” from Sony looks like a cool accessory for the camera enthusiast. Either one can be used as a standalone camera or attached to your phone utilizing its display as the viewfinder.
If you’re wondering how much Sony is going to charge for these bad boys, wonder no more.
The unannounced Samsung Galaxy Note 3 might feature an enhanced camera, according to a report. According to the report, Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), a technology with capabilities to reduce motion blur when taking pictures or recording video, will be included in the upcoming phone.
As part of their announcement of the Sony Xperia Z1 today, Sony took some time to show off a couple new accessories for smartphones. The Cyber-shot QX10 and QX100 attachable lenses take the form of a lens, but are really a complete camera that can be attached to a smartphone via a special bracket that quickly clips on an off.
Over the weekend we heard that Sony’s upcoming Lens Cameras would be part of a new line called Smart Shot. Both the QX10 and the QX100 will most likely be unveiled this Wednesday along with the Xperia Z1.
Just like the Xperia Z1, we have seen so many leaks, there really isn’t much left to tell us. Now we have several images of both cameras.
Just yesterday, we got a look at the back of the Galaxy S 5 Zoom. And today we (sort of) have a look at the inside of Samsung’s camera variant for the Galaxy S 5. The people of SamMobile were able to obtain the device’s AnTuTu benchmarks as well as additional information. In doing so, they found out some more specifications for the GS5 Zoom, model number SM-C115.
Apple has a couple of new interesting glimpses into possible new future tech published by the USPTO today, including a patent application for an iPad Smart Cover with a built-in battery and induction charging, and a mobile camera design that offers true optical zoom, instead of the low-quality digital zoom we’re all used to in current devices.
The induction charging patent application (via A
LG has created yet another video to go along with the launch of the LG G2. While the other was focused on the actual design process for their flagship device, LG opted for a little bit of comedy to show off a very important feature.
Now that we know that the Nexus 5 is made by LG and is probably based on the G2, it’s likely to sport Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). The phone is shown in all its glory via the FCC, and it appears it has the same camera module found on the LG G2.
A great camera is one feature that never found its way onto a Nexus device.
Earlier in the week the Samsung Galaxy S 4 Zoom was revealed to be a smartphone that will be all about the camera. The specs of the device will be more like the S 4 Mini, but the camera will be better than the Galaxy S 4 based on the fact that it will be 16-megapixels. What about optical zoom? That’s something we have all been dying for in a smartphone.
