We’ve seen a lot of cheap smartphones pop up lately, and it appears this trend isn’t going away just yet. Just last month, Xiaomi released a $250 phone to go against the iPhone X. Then there’s also the recently unveiled Huawei Honor 10 which goes for $475. But no matter how affordable these phones may be, none of them could ever beat the price of Alcatel’s 3V. It will only sell for $150, and it comes with a dual camera.
Pricing and release information for Sigma’s upcoming 105mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art series lens has finally been announced. We figured it was pretty much a certainty that it would be less expensive than the Nikon 105mm f/1.4E, but I didn’t expect this big of a difference. Coming in at a mere $1,599 ($600 cheaper than the Nikon), the lenses will be shipping in June.
If you’ve always wanted to buy a RED camera and have been saving up – now may be the right time to get it. The company has announced that they’re dropping prices on all of its cameras, and you can save up to $25,000. Additionally, RED is simplifying their product lineup and it will offer only three cameras.
Freefly is among the leading brands when it comes to camera stabilization. Unfortunately, their products are for professional use with prices regular folks simply can’t afford. But for the first time, the company is delving into the consumer market with the Freefly Movi. Their newest gimbal is compatible with smartphones, and it’s marketed specifically to you.
Fujifilm X-T100was recently rumored, and then specs and photos leaked only a few days before the announcement. But now it’s officially here: Fujifilm’s latest entry-level mirrorless camera is ready for preorders, and you can get it at a pretty reasonable price of $599. The exterior design is inspired by X-T20, but on the inside, it’s much more like the X-A5. Let’s dive in and check out the full specs of Fujifilm’s new camera.
If the iPhone’s Portrait Lighting already impresses you, then you better check out Apollo. This $1.99 iOS app adds immersive lighting effects that are–dare I say–better than what Apple’s version offers.
The Apollo app uses depth map from dual cameras to create the effects so, it only currently works with the iPhone 7 Plus, 8 Plus and X. Nevertheless, it does a great job at applying different lighting effects at any angle. In fact, you can even put a light source behind a subject to act as a rim light. You can add up to 20 light sources in one image and seamlessly adjust the color, intensity, and distance. Check out the short video clip below to see it in action:
Asus just released the newest addition to its ultrabook line: the Zenbook Pro 15. With a factory-calibrated 4K 100% Adobe RGB display, this could be a vagabonding video editor’s new workhorse. They packed so many features on this computer that Asus is even claiming “it is not just better: it’s the best.”
If you’re building a camera that requires some serious resolution, then you’re in luck. Canon is now selling their 120MP APS-H sensor to third-party camera builders, including you. If you’re wondering how powerful this sensor is, let’s just say it has 60 times the resolution of full HD. It’s pretty impressive for a small chip a tad bit bigger than a quarter.
Leaks happen all the time. Often they’re through anonymous sources, and occasionally a distributor lets something slip. But it’s rarely by the manufacturer themselves. This time, though, it seems that Fujifilm EU has accidentally leaked the complete specs for its upcoming X-T100 camera. The page was quickly taken down, but not before Google managed to snag a copy in its cache.
The leak was spotted by serial leakers Nokishita. They posted a copy of the basic specs, along with a links to cached content. For all intents and purposes, the X-T100 seems to basically be a Fuji X-A5, but with an EVF, 3-way tilting touchscreen and a bigger buffer.
