Sony’s Australian site had just listed the launch of the Sony A3500 mirrorless camera, but it would be extremely prudent if one were to approach this particular bit of news with caution. On paper, the Sony A3500 mirrorless camera might seem to be a new addition to the digital camera family, but in reality, it seems to be a minor revamp of the Sony A3000 which was introduced to the masses a mere half a year back, sporting a similar body and specifications including a 20.1-megapixel Exmor APS sensor, Full HD video recording capability and a continuous shooting speed of 3.5fps.
The ‘selfie’ has proven that it has enough relevance and pulling power to join the rest of the English vocabulary on a permanent residence basis, and so, without much further ado, we bring you word of a small camera that is capable of traveling through your body, capturing images at important places such as your aorta. This is made possible thanks to scientist F. Levent Degertekin who has developed such a tiny new camera that sends back high definition 3D images of your innards.
Earlier today, we did check out how the QX10 and the QX100 camera lenses from Sony could very well make its way to tablets – and here we are with additional information on this particular attachment. The device in question would be known as the Sony SPA-TA1 tablet attachment, where it will make its way over in the Land of the Rising Sun first before it probably would be released globally afterwards. So far, no official announcement concerning the Sony SPA-TA1 has been made other than the possibility of it arriving later this April 4th.

Bruce Macintosh, when he was a first-year student at the University of Toronto, has the idea that eventually, we humans will be able to point a telescope at a distant star, capture a snapshot of a world that is unfamiliar from that of hours, with it being way too far off that even with the existence of warp drives or hyperspace, that far away world would have been impossible to visit. Bruce Macintosh is now Dr. Macintosh, a physicist with Stanford University and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California, and he has recently made a trip to a mountain top in Chile and fulfilled that dream of his.
Dr. Macintosh said, “It was pretty astonishing. The first few minutes we were just staring at it and saying ‘Is that little blob real?’” It took 10 years to design and build such a camera that had an extremely specific purpose, so it was a pleasant surprise for Dr. Macintosh and his colleagues to see just how amazing their new device functioned at checking out a planet that lies over 60 light-years away from Earth. This could very well be a watermark event, laying down a marker for the future where we can check out an image of solar systems beyond our own.

FLIR FX happens to be the very first attempt by the folks over at FLIR to deliver a portable Wi-Fi camera to the masses, where along the way, it had also picked up the gong as the Winner of the 2014 CES Innovations Design & Engineering Awards. Sporting a flexible design, the FLIR FX camera comes across as an easy-to-use, portable HD video monitoring solution which will be able to adapt to your needs. Of course, there must be something which should help set apart the FLIR FX from its competitors, so what are they?
[CES 2014] Two years ago, we predicted that Android will be everywhere, specifically in cameras. Since 2012, a handful of manufacturers launched Android cameras with Samsung leading the way. Today, the Galaxy Camera 2, Samsung’s third Android camera, launched.
The Galaxy Camera first generation was introduced at IFA in 2012 (check the review here), and later that year in June, the manufacturer announced the Galaxy NX camera during an event we attended in London (check the hands on here).
The new features of the Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 include a flexible Xenon flash that you can hold horizontally to project the light toward the ceiling, 2 GB RAM (before it was 1 GB), an upgraded quad-core processor at 1.6 Ghz (from 1.4 Ghz), 2000mAh battery (from 1600mAh), Jelly Bean 4.3 (upgraded from 4.1) and NFC.
