An article from The New Atlas about constantly improving smart phone photography.
A report from CNET about the growing trend of putting dual cameras in smart phones.
Sony has announced the A9, compact mirrorless camera. They modestly claim that is is the best camera ever made, and it might have the specs to support that claim. I have watched hundreds of photography videos at the Lynda,com website. More and more of the professional photographers are switching to the light-weight, high-performance mirrorless cameras made by Sony and Fuji Film. I have a tiny Sony RX 100 V, and it is a superb camera. I consider it my “last” camera. I carry it everywhere I go practically. Be prepared to part with a lot of money if you have to buy the A9. The price of the body alone is $4,500.
Google Photos now has tool that can fix shaky videos. I use the service, but I did not know about this tool.
Sony Corp. has announced upgrades to its Digital Paper Tablet. The new tablet features a higher resolution screen, more memory. NFC and Bluetooth Connectivity, and a new pen-friendly screen. The company has not announced the price for the new device, but it will probably cost around $1,000 US.
Canon has announced its successor to the SX720 HS, the SX730 HS. Both cameras feature a 40X zoom lens, equivalent to a 35mm 24-960 superzoom. I own the 720. It is a good camera to take to sporting events where DSLRs are not allowed. Image quality is okay, but the fairly small maximum aperture limits the amount of light it can let in, so it is not a good camera to use in low light conditions. The SX730 will be priced at $400 US.
Photo giant Nikon is celebrating its 100th anniversary with two new cameras, the D5 and D500. The company is also bringing out a special-editon 70-200 E zoom lens. Nikon has not announced the prices on the new camera and the new lens.
