GadgeTell Review: Polaroid XS100i Extreme Edition

Since Nick Woodman invented the GoPro, action cameras have become a necessary piece of equipment for all adventures, extreme sports, and not-so-extreme sports. There are a lot of copycats on the market now, and thank goodness, because  not everyone is excited to pay GoPro prices. Frankly, unless you’re a professional snow boarder, go parachuting on the more »

Kickstarter Spotlight: The OTTO GIF camera brings the possibilities

We love GIFs over at Technology Tell. It’s safe to say that a majority of our email chains are basically collections of GIFs, and we literally feud about the proper pronunciation (feel free to share your opinion). So when I saw the OTTO Kickstarter project, a GIF camera, it’s safe to say I lost my mind a little bit. And then of course I told all my coworkers about it, and they subsequently lost their minds as well.


Lifelogger wearable camera records, streams POV video

If you haven’t noticed, we as human beings are pretty social. We love to share and gain recognition, sometimes a little too much (e.g. selfies, food photos, sexting, etc). Strange behavior aside, we participate in a lot of amazing moments and manage to get some pretty good photos from it. Videos? Sometimes. Maybe not enough. The best way to guarantee some good video is to keep a camera rolling at all times.

Selfie addict? Binge with iLuv cases for iPhone 5, Galaxy S5

Love it, hate it, or love to hate it, there’s likely little end to the whole selfie phenomenon. Google search “selfie” and “mental disorder” and you’ll find that it’s quite the topic. Not all of us go through such extremes for personal photo-taking, but I’m sure we all know some who do. Regardless of frequency, posting such personal photos speaks to the human desire for appreciation and notice. We all like it and (fundamentally) need it. Some more than others, naturally.

Samsung teases April 29 announcement, basically confirms Galaxy K Zoom

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, in which case a video is probably worth a million. But if it only clocks in at a few seconds, it’s more in the tens of thousands ballpark. Still plenty to confirm the identity of Samsung’s “Next Galaxy” beyond the shadow of a doubt.

Is this the Samsung Galaxy K Zoom?

Aside from the Galaxy S phones, Galaxy Tabs, and Galaxy Gear, the Galaxy cameras are something to be excited about. I’m more inclined to get a new compact camera as I just got back from a vacation. My iPhone 4’s camera is now sub-standard I think it’s time to upgrade. I don’t want to get a new phone so I’ll just get a camera. Maybe something like the Galaxy K Zoom which was recently spotted by Mr. Blurry Cam.
