I rifled through my parents’ basement earlier this week in search of something– I can’t remember what– and stumbled upon the proverbial shoeboxes full of pictures. Rows of prints, stacks of Polaroids, and envelopes of negatives filled 10-or-so boxes buried behind the standard pile of old laptops and VCRs. So, of course, I spent hours sitting on more »
The best part about CES is coming home with a wishlist full of prospective tech items that I want for myself, and such was the case for CES 2015. This year’s show-floor was full of innovative products that I’ll be looking to add to my life in the coming year. And if you’ve been keeping up with the tech game for 2015, you know that photography innovations are a hot commodity this year. Thus, the Prynt Case is topping my CES 2015 wishlist.
I write for a technology website. I’m on top of the tech news pretty much every day of my life. And I hadn’t heard of “selfie sticks” until a week or so ago. It’s a product simple yet so, so silly: A long metal stick that holds your smartphone or camera, so you can hold more »
Get ahead of your game this year by sending out photo holiday cards to friends and family. Here are five mobile apps to transform images into masterpieces.
As expected, the lukewarm critical reception of HTC’s quirky little RE Camera likely translated into paltry box-office numbers so far. Otherwise, there would be no reason for the pipe-like shooter’s makers to already take a whopping half off RE’s price. A sudden spurt of generosity could be another possible explanation, we guess, but we’ve stopped more »
Japanese technology company Sony has revealed it will begin shipping a new 21-megapixel smartphone image sensor next year. The company is already behind some of the best mobile image sensors, and the upgraded 21MP sensor will only add to Sony’s good reputation in the market. Sony’s Exmor RS IMX230 sensor has a higher megapixel count and faster auto-focus, according to a statement from Sony.
When it comes to stored digital media, nothing takes up more space than my photos. Important documents? It’s been holding steady around 3GB. My entire music library has pushed past 600 albums, requiring only 14.3GB of space. But with all the free streaming music services available, it’s not growing much at all. But photos taken from smartphones? I’m about to break past 50GB very soon.
It’s an announcement-packed beginning of the week for AT&T, which is just about ready to welcome three new HTC devices in its product portfolio in addition to Samsung’s Galaxy Note Edge, Motorola’s Moto 360 and LG’s G Watch R.
On Monday, Oppo teased the swiveling camera that will be found on its N3 smartphone, and now the company has confirmed some of the specs for the camera sensor. Oppo CEO Chenming Yong has released some information in regards to the N3 camera on Weibo. The camera will have a 16-megapixel 1/2.3-inch sensor, and the CEO released a photo comparing the sensor to the specs found in the iPhone 6, One M8, and other high-end devices.
Well, that surely didn’t take long. HTC barely got through the “Double Exposure” event and unveiled the Desire Eye smartphone and Re Camera, leaving availability and pricing largely up in the air, and AT&T already made the picture complete.
Admittedly, I don’t have the best associations when it comes to OkCupid. I attribute this to the fact that my friend’s creepy roommate used to browse OkCupid profiles in the dark, and something about it felt like a bad episode of Law and Order: SVU. However, he always had a girlfriend so it was clearly working for him. That being said, I fully support OkCupid’s data collection blog, “OkTrends,” because it uses OkCupid’s dating powers for good! Quite the rarity. In their own words, “we’ve compiled our observations and statistics from hundreds of millions of OkCupid user interactions, all to explore the data side of the online world.” And their latest research-based post was created to help users take better profile pictures.
Despite how digital photos from smartphones and cameras can be nigh unlimited, due to being able to delete the chaff, there is value in taking a great shot the first time each time. If not for the sake of photography, then at least to save storage space or time spent cherry-picking.
