Canon's Rumoured 28-560mm Lens Sounds Comically Gigantic

Technology is strange. As some things get smaller, like smartphones, others grow in size… like smartphones. OK, bad example there. How about camera lenses? Sure, advances in optics have allowed us to cram three (and a billion) lenses into one, but when it comes to taking photos, sometimes you just can’t compromise. And Canon’s rumoured 28-560mm EF doesn’t sound like it will compromise, at all.


DIY Camera Spits Out Someone Else's Photos Instead Of Yours

Google's Absurdly Hi-Res Camera Will Preserve Great Works Of Art

Google has finally finished work on the cameras it hopes will digitise the world’s art collections. Fittingly called the Art Camera, the extremely high-resolution robots will be lent out to museums for free, and photos taken with them will appear on Google’s online Culture Institute.


Cops Wearing Body Cameras Are More Likely To Be Assaulted

A large-scale analysis of body-camera usage among police officers in the US and the UK has produced some rather unexpected and counter-intuitive results, showing that body-worn cameras have a tendency to increase assaults on police.

Stick-On Lenses Turn Your Phone Camera Into A Microscope

Lens accessories for smartphones are by no means a new idea, but they’re often clunky, awkward to use, and far from something you’d want to try and squeeze into your pocket.

Just Announced: Canon's Powershot SX620 HS

Canon has just introduced the PowerShot SX620 HS — a compact superzoom camera designed to “get you closer to the action”, thanks to a new 25x optical (which can extend a further 50x).

Standout features include a 20.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4+ processor, intuitive handling and a unique range of creative effects. Basically, it’s a tiny camera with a big zoom you can take anywhere.


Leaked Canon Lens Has Some Bright Ideas Built In

Properly lighting a tiny subject when doing macro photography is tricky since your camera ends up so close to it. A ring light surrounding the lens is one solution to the problem, and it looks like Canon might soon be releasing a macro lens featuring an LED ring light built right in.
