Polaroid’s Socialmatic camera coming in January; pre-orders now up

We've previously talked about how as mobile photography becomes more advanced, people are also becoming even more nostalgic and fascinated with the printed photograph. Polaroid was the pioneer in instant photo printing and while their analog cameras eventually died, they have reinvented themselves with a smartphone and tablet line. Their latest product though is a blend of their old and new business, and now it's finally really arriving this January.

HTC RE Camera review

A periscope. An asthma inhaler. We’ve even heard the RE from HTC referred to as other things we won’t print, but one thing remains clear: HTC wants you snapping more pics. With the RE, HTC is moving past their time as a phone maker, and headlong into the world of accessories. Is the Re, which draws comparisons to devices like a GoPro, worthy of your attention, or is it another strange device we’ll soon forget? A review should answer that question nicely.

South Korea cracking down on unregistered selfie sticks

Don't worry, South Korea is not turning into a dictatorial, fun-hating country that punishes people for taking selfies (although, sometimes, we think they really do need punishment yes?). There is a perfectly reasonable (well, sort of) explanation as to why they are cracking down on those selfie sticks and it's not because they're annoying. What the government wants to do is to have them registered, if they have Bluetooth connectivity.

HTC Desire Eye Review: Welcome to the (selfie) machine

Marketed as the “phone made for selfies”, the HTC Desire Eye forges a new path for HTC. It’s not all metal, and definitely not a flagship device. After leaning on the One series for two years, HTC is now looking to the mid-range segment, dominated by younger buyers stateside. Is the Desire Eye a new phone that can compete with the likes of a Moto G? Better yet, can it keep pace with an iPhone 5S, or 5C? The short answer: almost.

Mind4 Android based drone carries a GoPro

There are a number of drones on the market today, but none of them has been based on the Android operating system until now. A new drone called the Mind4 has been announced and it claims to be the world's first Android based smart drone. Mind4 has computer vision and is capable of following any subject precisely and recognizing body gestures.

New sensor to bring mirrorless camera to next Sony smartphone

With mobile camera phones, it's not always about the pixels, unless you're just all about the selfies. For serious photo enthusiasts who look for their new smartphone based on its imaging capabilities, you understand that the sensors behind the camera matters very much. Sony announced a new EXMOR RS sensor, the IMX230, that just might revolutionize how the photos you take on your mobile phone look compared to actual DSLR cameras. This would include HDR imaging for photos and better autofocus system, all thanks to the stacked design of the sensor that allows more functionality.

HTC releases RE app to accompany its RE camera

You didn't really think they would release a camera that doesn't have a viewfinder right? HTC's weirdly-shaped RE camera will soon be available in the market, but ahead of its release, an app to help you use it has been released for Android devices. The companion app will serve as a viewfinder, controller, and gallery viewer to the standalone camera. This is part of HTC's foray into the digital imaging market, which also includes the HTC Desire Eye and a collaborative video editing app.
