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.
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.
Another year, another selfie-centric smartphone from OPPO. Only this time, they’re not calling it a Selfie Expert, probably because it doesn’t bear the F1 badge. Instead, OPPO Malaysia is shifting the focus onto their new R9s smartphone to the 16-megapixel primary camera at the back.
But, when the R9s also comes with a 16MP selfie shooter up front, you’re gonna wanna take some selfies too.
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.
Fujifilm Malaysia just launched their latest Fujifim X-A3 mirrorless camera that they say is designed for the selfie generation. It comes with several features designed to help you take the perfect selfie.
The question I have is: Do you really need a mirrorless APS-C camera with interchangeable lenses to capture selfies?
Film has always been the medium for photography purists. The most extreme fanatics turn their nose up at digital photography because, to many of them, people who look at a screen after each shot to see how well their photos turn out are akin to a monkey playing with a toy they do not understand.
I am one such monkey. I never saw the appeal in film or instant film photography…that is until I saw Impossible Project’s absolutely gorgeous I-1 instant film camera.
Smartphone cameras are getting better in each iteration and the latest Galaxy S7 edge continues to raise the bar higher. Although it was downsized from 16MP to 12MP, the new Galaxy gets a brighter f/1.7 lens, larger pixels and faster focus thanks to its new Dual-Pixel sensor.
DxOMark, the camera benchmark authority has just named the Galaxy S7 edge as the new smartphone champion with an overall score of 88. This knocks out the Xperia Z5, which they previously crowned as the best camera on a smartphone.
Bam! Mobile World Congress 2016 passed by like in just a blink of the eye and now we’re suffering from post-congress withdrawals. Not without good reason, by the way. Three (big) smartphone makers released their flagships for this year including the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. On a less than positive note, it’s rather sad that we won’t be getting the standard Galaxy S7 in Malaysia.
Although we pretty much knew everything about the two smartphones prior to the South Korean manufacturer taking the MWC floor, we didn’t know how good the camera on the follow-up to the Galaxy S6 flagships would be.
We were eager to find out so we pit the edgy Samsung number against other formidable smartphone cameras.

From cave walls to our smartphones in pockets of our pants, imaging as a whole as gone through the generations and transcended the way we document the moments of our lives. Our photos live in many ways across many illustrations and the way we capture them have now moved to the little sensors that occasionally give our smartphones a camera hump and visors.
Now that our cameras are handheld and no longer require tripods, the image stabilisers that live within these lenses are all we require. They’re very important these stabilisers, without them our photos would be a blurry mess.
The SmartSensor that OPPO just announced is the first of its kind. Collaborating with MEMS Drive, the duo now has upped the smartphone camera game.
