Two members of Baltimore's County Council have introduced a new resolution to tighten public access to body camera footage. The measure, introduced by Republican councilmen Todd Crandell and Wade Kach, comes after dozens of criminal cases were dropped in Baltimore following the release of camera footage that seemingly uncovered officer misconduct.
Google introduced a tiny lifelogging camera yesterday at its Pixel 2 event. Called Clips, the little device can be held, clipped or set down while it uses artificial intelligence and facial recognition to "capture beautiful, spontaneous images" of your life. As with most cameras intended to constantly record you, a lot of people's first instinct was: Holy crap this is creepy.
Internet of Things devices are notoriously insecure and webcams are among the creepiest targets for hacks. A woman in the Netherlands recently learned just how disturbing these vulnerabilities can be, capturing footage of a home webcam that started tracking her movements and speaking to her in a sinister, unfamiliar voice.
Have you ever had the perfect photo ruined by someone with their eyes closed in the shot? You could fix the problem with a bit of cloning from an alternate shot using a photo editing app -- but Adobe is making the process much easier in the new 2018 version of Photoshop Elements with a dedicated 'Open Closed Eyes' feature.
The night that Polaroid announced its first all-new instant camera since the mid-aughts, there was a party in the Bowery. A small gallery space was filled with sweaty art school types, and a row Polaroid cameras lined one wall showcasing a timeline of the company's design. The famous Polaroid photographer Ryan McGinley announced the new camera: the OneStep 2, the heir apparent to the original OneStep camera that inspired the Instagram logo.
Even a basic drone is a complicated piece of technology and machinery. A racing drone is even more high-tech, with lightweight components and custom-built parts inside. Here's what goes into the drones currently racing at the Red Bull Dr.One championships in Spielberg, Austria.
You know the old adage, "It's what's on the inside that counts." That's just what GoPro is banking on with its new flagship camera, the $749.95 Hero6 Black. Physically, it looks identical to last year's Hero5 Black, and that's not a bad thing. Under the hood, though, there's a hell of a lot more power.
Before Twitter killed it off, Kevin Parry was a Vine star (who has since jumped ship to Instagram) known for his simplistic yet mind-blowing optical illusions. He's since compiled a few of them into a longer video that will have you spending the rest of the day trying to figure out how he made each one.
Polaroid went bust in 2001, and the company formed from its ashes went bust again in 2008. The Polaroid Corporation that formed from that has had a shaky history, releasing digital 'instant' cameras and instant photo printers. But on the 80th anniversary of the original company's founding, Polaroid is back as Polaroid Originals -- and it's making a new instant film camera called the OneStep 2.
Canon and Nikon have a tendency to dominate the news with lenses and bodies. Fujifilm wants to capture your attention with something different -- software. And cool software at that. Starting from November this year, select Fujifilm cameras, in combination with a special desktop application, will be able to convert RAW images using the camera's internal hardware.
If you're a photography enthusiast who still hauls around a heavy DSLR and a bag full of glass, you've probably got one of those clever camera lens mugs sitting on your desk. But a photography studio is the last place you want to spill coffee, so these matching camera lens coasters will help keep stains off your sets.
Interchangeable lens shooters such as the Sony A9 are evidence that mirrorless cameras can not only compete at the highest levels of photography, but they're probably also the eventual successors to DSLRs. So you'd assume that a company like Canon would have made strong inroads into the mirrorless market by now. But with cameras like the new EOS M100, the company is still treating the mirrorless market as an afterthought, not the future.
