What’s crazier? Eagle attacks drone mid-flight, or fisherman hooks drone mid-air

In what seems like the blink of an eye, drones went from something only gadget enthusiasts obsessed over to mainstream machines you can now pick up from places like Toys”R”Us for just $25. In turn, the number videos on YouTube featuring drone footage has skyrocketed in just the last few months alone. In the process, we’ve also seen an increase in drone related mishaps.

In the last week, two such drone ‘disasters’ made their way around the web. While one might think that flying a drone in the open skies should be a worriless affair, the following videos prove otherwise.

Canon’s insane new video camera can record HD color video in the dark

Canon earlier today unveiled a jaw-dropping new multi-purpose camera with a maximum ISO of over 4,000,000. In layman’s terms, this bad boy can effectively see in the dark.

Dubbed the ME20F-SH, Canon’s latest creation can record full color HD video in extremely dark conditions. How dark? Well Canon’s press release notes that it can capture video “with a minimum subject illumination of less than 0.0005 lux. “To put that in perspective, Petapixel writes, “a full moon on a clear night is about 0.27 to 1.0 lux, and 0.0001 lux is a moonless, overcast night. The camera can capture high-quality images of things the human eye cannot see.”

Google Nest Cam Announcement Analysis

Why the Hell Would I Want a Google Camera Recording Everything in my House?

Why the Hell Would I Want a Google Camera Recording Everything in my House?

I’m a big fan of Google services but there are limits to what I’ll subject myself to in the name of convenience. That limit was definitely reached this week with the announcement of the Nest Cam home security camera. The camera itself isn’t anything to freak out about, but I really do not understand why anyone would take Google up on its Nest Aware offer that will record everything in your house and analyze it constantly.

Epic photos of ‘GoPro’ style cameras in the 1960s

These days, if you’re looking to capture some extreme sports action, whether it be Base Jumping or even surfing, you’d be hard pressed to find a better solution than a GoPro camera. Indeed, GoPro cameras are seemingly everywhere these days, even showing up during yesterday’s Google I/O presentation in the form of a virtual reality rig comprised of 16 GoPro cameras.

So while GoPro gets the job done today, what did the adventure seekers of yore do to capture their death defying and adrenaline pumping feats of grandeur? Well, they worked with the tools they had at the time and opted to attach bulky and unwieldy cameras to their helmets.

Tests claim HTC One M9’s camera is worse than three-year-old iPhone 4S, Galaxy S III

The HTC One M9 is already looking like a disaster for HTC, which was seemingly caught off guard by all the major improvements that Samsung made with its Galaxy S6 line of smartphones. One of the biggest disappointments with the One M9 has been its camera, which reviewers have claimed is still miles behind flagship devices such as the iPhone 6, the Galaxy S6 and the LG G4. However, Forbes points us to a new study from the imaging experts at DxOMark showing that the One M9’s camera doesn’t even match the cameras of flagship phones released more than three years ago.
