Mobile World Congress is a place where OPPO loves to showcase their technological breakthroughs. Last year, we saw a new fast-charging standard that topped up a smartphone’s battery in just 15 minutes. We also saw the SmartSensor three axis sensor stabilisation.
This year, OPPO is focusing on smartphone camera zoom and this is what they’ve come up with. It utilises two sensors and a periscope-style lens structure.
The Mobile World Congress is the biggest mobile tech event of the year. This year, we’re going to be covering it (as usual) and we thought we’d give you guys a quick glimpse into the kind of equipment we’re bringing to cover a massive event like this.
Sony may not be as great as before when it comes smartphones but they are definitely in the forefront of mobile photography with their range of camera sensors. You can find them in most flagship smartphones from Apple, Huawei and Samsung.
As everything looks dramatic in slow-mo, Sony is turning things up a notch with their brand new 3-layer CMOS sensor that shoots full HD 1080p videos at an incredible 1,000 frames per second. That’s crazy fast and Sony claims it is 8X faster than conventional image sensors.
Just as we thought the Karma is gone for good, GoPro’s first drone has returned and it’s ready to bite for a slice of the drone market. Announced in September last year, the Karma was later recalled due to power failures in mid-flight.
I don’t think I’ve been this excited for a camera since the day I got my hands on my Fujifilm X100S. For the longest time, I was eyeing its interchangeable lens brother, the X-T10, but now I think I’ve found the camera I truly want.
It’s Fujifilm’s brand new X-T20 and it looks amazing. TL;DR? It’s probably going to make a lot of X-T2 users feel a tad annoyed.
DJI’s Mavic Pro looks like an amazing drone. It’s this small, powerful and easy to fly drone that will turn even the most amateur of drone pilots into aerial photography experts. So, naturally, when we got our hands on the brand new Mavic Pro, the first person we passed it to for testing was our video guy who has never flown a drone before.
Here’s what happened.
If I were to pick a theme for tech in 2016, it would be creating immersion. Everything from smartphones, cameras and the development of virtual reality has all been about giving the user (that’s us!) the most amount of immersion possible.
With how popular VR and 360-degree got over the course of the year, there’s no doubt that many of you are interested in trying your hand at creating and sharing such content. But which 360-degree camera do you get? If I were to buy one, it would definitely be the Samsung Gear 360. Here’s why.
Canon hasn’t had the best time competing in the mirrorless segment of the camera market. Their previous EOS M devices have all felt a little lackluster, most commonly plagued with autofocus problems. However, at Photokina this year, the company launched their best mirrorless camera yet — the EOS M5.
Now, Canon is officially launching this “mirrorless EOS 80D” here in Malaysia and you can pick one up for yourself at the end of December.
Yes, you read that right, there is no typo there. Meet the Casio Exilim FR110H Outdoor Recorder — the rugged action camera with a 1.9MP back-illuminated CMOS sensor and really large individual pixels to help you see in the dark.
We reported earlier that GoPro’s fabled Karma drone was falling out of the sky, which is obviously terrible especially since the drone itself has received a lot of praise from critics. Yeah, it isn’t as good of a drone as something like the DJI Mavic Pro, but you’re getting a solid package with the Karma, Karma Grip and GoPro HERO5.
Well, if you’ve been eyeing a stabiliser for your brand new GoPro HERO5 before the drones started failing, the good news is that GoPro is now selling their Karma Grip standalone.
