Back at CES 2015 earlier this year, ASUS has not only unveiled Zenfone 2 for the first time to the world but has also brought forward the Zenfone Zoom. Designed for photography in mind, the new device has an uncanny resemblance to the famed Nokia Lumia 1020 which some called as the gold standard in mobile photography due to its 41-megapixels PureView camera.
Xiaomi really brought its A-game to the world of action videography with the release of the Yi Action Camera. Now, the company has released official photo and video samples taken with the sports camera that boasts on powerful hardware while still being able to take a swim with the fishes, and not to mention keeping its retail price low.
Samsung’s last flagship smartphone, the Galaxy Note 4, was the closest to match the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus as the best all-round smartphone camera. Now that we know it has fitted the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge with the Sony IMX 240 camera sensor, how well does it perform this time?
While the numbers surrounding the Samsung Galaxy S6’s camera sound impressive enough, I remember this time last year when Samsung was equally vocal about the Galaxy S5’s camera. As it turns out, one of the best features from the Galaxy Note 4 has been transferred into the Galaxy S6.
Xiaomi previously teased its fans with an image of a matchbox, and now the mysterious device has come out of the shadows. Bearing the name the Yi Action Camera, the company’s latest product is a GoPro-style action camera which features similar specifications but at a fraction of the price.
Many thought that this device would be the Lenovo Vibe Z3 Pro, but apparently it is the Lenovo Vibe Shot. The company has unveiled its latest smartphone at MWC, a 16MP camera smartphone that features optical image stabilisation and a BSI sensor. It really does look more like a camera than a smartphone.
Xiaomi just updated its official Chinese website and a new teaser has cropped up. It’s a simple picture which shows a matchbox and a “Learn More” dialogue box. We think it’s a portable camera that is likely to be a GoPro rival because the company mentioned that the device will help us view life in different angles and record life’s precious moments.
Earlier this month, Samsung has introduced a brand new camera under its NX series called NX500 which apparently mixes together the capability of its flagship NX1 camera with consumer-level features. It is scheduled to be released throughout the world starting this March and true enough, the camera has made its way to SIRIM’s database.
Toshiba has revealed several reference designs for camera modules meant to work with Google’s Project Ara modular smartphone. Speaking at the Project Ara Developers Conference last month, Shardul Kazi, Senior Vice President from Toshiba America, demonstrated modules with varying sensor sizes and capabilities.
Canon has announced a range of new cameras for the coming months, including a 50-megapixel full frame sensor in the new EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R. Also set to be making an appearance is the new EOS M3 (an update to the mirrorless EOS M series), a new Powershot G3 X, and a pair of Rebel cameras.
