iPhone 7 camera review: So good, you don’t need the 7 Plus

The worst thing about listening to the iPhone announcement was the cold, terrifying realization that I might have to buy an iPhone 7 Plus. If you believed the team of Jobs disciples on stage, there’s no way you could pass up the iPhone 7 Plus’s dual camera system.

But believe me, the iPhone 7 on its own is more than enough camera for anyone.

Everything we know about the iPhone 7 Plus’ innovative new dual camera system

Everything we know about the iPhone 7 Plus’ innovative new dual camera system

Set to be unveiled later this week, Apple’s iPhone 7 has unfairly been categorized as a middle-of-the-road upgrade. Sure, the iPhone 7 may not introduce a radical new design or form factor, but there are still no shortage of reasons to get excited about Apple’s next-gen smartphone. In particular, the dual camera system that will grace Apple’s 5.5-inch iPhone 7 will likely represent a monumental leap forward in smartphone camera quality.

Based on any number of credible reports, the dual camera system on the iPhone 7 Plus will largely be based on technology Apple picked up when it acquired a company called LinX back in early 2015.  Originally based out of Israel, LinX’s advanced camera technology was capable of delivering superior camera performance across a number of different shooting environments, including low light situations. What’s more, LinX’s technology was said to capture “gorgeous photos in the most challenging environments (flares, mist, reflections, very close objects, etc).” Further, LinX’s slim camera models also served up marked improvements in color accuracy, noise levels, shutter lag, color uniformity and much more.

At CES this week, Nikon turned a few heads when it unveiled its new KeyMission 360 camera, a wearable 4K camera that can record 360 degree photos and video.

Canon has an insane 250 megapixel sensor that can read lettering on a plane flying 11 miles away

Whoever Canon has working long hours in their R&D labs deserves a raise. Just about a month after the company introduced a video camera that can record HD color video in the dark comes another mind boggling advancement – a 250 megapixel monster of a sensor.

Earlier today Canon formally unveiled a 250 megapixel image sensor small enough that it can fit inside of a DSLR camera. Highlighting how powerful the new sensor is, Canon writes that it can distinguish the lettering on the side of an airplane flying 11 miles away “from the shooting location.”

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

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.”

The photographed world: How our generation is redefining the art of documentation

It was November of 2006, and while many were stuck in a food coma and/or preparing to zone out for the holidays, Flickr was launching a new tool. “Camera Finder,” it was dubbed, and its purpose was immediately clear: To allow viewers an insider’s look as to what digital imaging tools were making the biggest splash across the network. Even in 2006, consumers adored trends. As it turns out, Nikon even took out a sponsorship to trumpet its mighty D80 DSLR — after all, what camera company wouldn’t want such a tool to showcase its wares on? More →

FDA has no problem with camera-equipped smart pills travelling your body

The FDA has approved a “bite-sized” camera-equipped smart pill for medical use in patients who aren’t able, for whatever reason, to have a complete colonoscopy, Mashable reports. The smart pill has a camera on both ends and will travel the human body in eight hours, taking high-speed pictures of intestines and sending them to a device worn by the patient. The doctor can then take a look at the pictures once the procedure is complete.
