New Oculus Rift Kit To Debut At CES 2014

New Oculus Rift Kit To Debut At CES 2014Back in 2013, we managed to get an eyes-on the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, which for those hearing about it for the first time, is a headset designed to help create a more immersive gaming experience. The device has yet to be made commercially available, although to date we have seen plenty of good examples of how the device is used and have seen how some gaming titles have been adapted to the Oculus Rift, adding a completely brand new dimension to them in the process.

In any case might we expect anything new from the Oculus Rift team this year at CES 2014? After all it’s been a year since the company debuted the device, there’s a good chance we could see some improvements and changes, right? Well if you think so as well, you’d be right on the money thanks to a tweet by Tom Forsyth, a member of the Oculus Rift team, who revealed that the company had something new to show us at CES 2014. According to Forsyth’s tweet, “We’re showing the latest Rift kit at CES. Should be pretty interesting. I’m looking forward to the feedback.”  We’re not sure what sort of changes the team has made to the original product, but as we’re live at CES ourselves, we’ll definitely want to check this out for ourselves given the opportunity.

    Fujifilm Unveils FUJINON XF56mmF1.2 R Lens For Portrait Photography

     Fujifilm Unveils FUJINON XF56mmF1.2 R Lens For Portrait Photography[CES 2014] If there’s one thing that new photographers tend to be confused about is why are lenses considered good for portraits typically of the prime variety that are quite zoomed in? Well one of the reasons is because it allows photographers to frame the face/neck/shoulders of their subject nicely, plus there are some photographers who feel that prime lenses are less complex compared to zoom lenses, which means that they can be cheaper and even sharper than regular zoom lens. Well if you’re after a portrait lens, you might be very interested in Fujifilm’s recently announced FUJINON XF56mmF1.2 R lens, which is an 85mm equivalent lens that Fujifilm is calling perfect for portrait photography.

    Samsung Galaxy S5 Rumored To Use Sharp’s LTPS LCD Displays Instead Of AMOLED

    Samsung Galaxy S5 Rumored To Use Sharps LTPS LCD Displays Instead Of AMOLEDIf there’s one thing we can be pretty certain about, is that Samsung’s flagship products will typically use the South Korean company’s AMOLED displays. After all what better way to show off your own technology, right? Interestingly enough thanks a new rumor that has surfaced, it seems that with the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5, word on the street has it that Samsung might turn to Sharp for their displays, as opposed to using their own AMOLED panels which is typically the case and more or less to be expected from them. This rumor comes from Tencent who claims that Sharp could be the one to provide Samsung with LTPS LCD displays.

    So why turn to Sharp when Samsung can easily make their own display panels? Well as it turns out, Samsung is having a hard time manufacturing 2K AMOLED displays that were rumored to be part of the Galaxy S5, and also because the company is apparently trying to focus on bringing more flexible displays into the market, meaning that their efforts could be focused elsewhere. Given that Samsung has invested into Sharp, we guess Samsung could be taking advantage of their investment by getting Sharp to manufacture their displays for them. It is unclear how much of a difference Sharps’ LTPS LCD displays will compare to Samsung’s AMOLED, but we guess we will have to wait and find out, which will be at MWC 2014 if the rumors are to be believed.

    SteelSeries Unveils MFi Stratus Controller

    SteelSeries Unveils MFi Stratus ControllerEarlier we had seen how SteelSeries had collaborated with eye-tracking specialist Tobii to create an eye-tracking related gaming accessory for gamers, and it looks like that’s not all SteelSeries has up their sleeves as the company has recently announced a MFi Bluetooth game controller designed for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch in mind in the form of the Stratus Controller. For those wondering MFi, it’s basically Apple’s way of saying that these devices have been authorized by the Cupertino company, meaning that in theory they should play nicely with iOS devices, as opposed to non-MFi products which could be hit or miss, and might not necessarily take advantage of all that iOS has to offer.

    SteelSeries is not the first MFi manufacturer as other companies, such as Logitech and Moga have beaten them to the punch. According to SteelSeries, their offering will pack over 10 hours of battery life. The controller will also feature the same controls one might expect from a gaming controller, such as D-pads, analog sticks, buttons, shoulder buttons, and will pair with iOS devices via Bluetooth. No word on availability just yet, but according to SteelSeries, the Stratus Controller will be available for pre-order via their website for $99.99.

    Nikon D4 Rumored For CES Announcement

    Nikon D4 Rumored For CES AnnouncementCES 2014 is taking place this week and we’re looking forward to learning about a bunch of new devices that will be debuting at the event. We expect manufacturers to unveil all sorts of cool technological innovations and if the rumors are to be believed, Nikon is expected to make an announcement at CES as well and could very well announce a successor to the Nikon D4 DSLR camera. This rumor comes courtesy of Digicame-info who reports that CES could be the platform that Nikon is taking advantage of to make their announcement. They are also reporting that alongside the D4 successor announcement could be two new lenses as well as a certain D3300.

    We have heard rumors that Nikon could be planning a successor for its D4 camera and given that the camera is about 2 years old, we guess it does seem about right that Nikon would be looking to introduce a newer model with upgraded features. The specs of the camera are unknown at the moment, but hopefully we will learn more later this week. There is also a possibility that if Nikon does not make the announcement at CES 2014, they might make an announcement at CP+ which is taking place not too long after CES, but either way check back with us later this week to see if there is any official news to be had.
