Panasonic has just released an update for its Panasonic Image App for Android. The new version doesn't bring in much new features or makes mention of any bug fixes but does add one new model to its list of supported cameras.
Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Gear smartwatch in Berlin last week. At the time we learned the specs of the watch and a bit about the availability. In fact, we have already begun to see the watch show up for pre-order in the US market. Since that point we have also seen details about how the watch had 12 apps ready for launch with more than 70 others in the works. Well, it looks like Snapchat will be one of those apps.
As part of its developer program to bridge the worlds of smart devices and its cameras, Sony is making available its Camera Remote API (Application Programming Interface). This will allow developers to create and publish apps on Android and iOS that will let users control various aspects of compatible Sony cameras right from their WiFi-enabled phones or tablets.
Sony wants to get serious when it comes to smartphone photography, and today they've officially announced their brand new "Lens Cameras" that can attach to any smartphone. We know basically everything already at this point, and previous leaks were 100% accurate, but today Sony just made it all official. They're called the Cyber-shot QX10 and QX100 and we have plenty of picture and details below.
Sony is just about ready to offer the official announcement for the QX10 and QX100 Lens Cameras, however as we saw yesterday -- the full set of details to include pricing and specs were already revealed. Those arrived yesterday afternoon when the press release leaked and given that, this latest bit should come with little in terms of surprise. Both the QX10 and QX100 Lens Cameras have arrived for pre-order.
We recently saw the press release leak for the Sony Zperia Z1 (Honami) smartphone. That leak confirmed the specs for the handset and it looks like another Sony press release has leaked. This other is for the QX10 and QX100 "Lens-Style Cameras" and has come by way of Sony Alpha Rumors. That being said, we now have details to include the specs and pricing as well as a rough timeframe for release.
Samsung should be announcing the Galaxy Note III at the Unpacked Episode 2 event in Berlin on September 4. While we are only a day away at this point in time, it is looking like the rumors, leaks and speculation are not going to stop. This latest deals with images. Specifically, an S Orb image that looks to have been shared by a T-Mobile Galaxy Note III.
Details of the OPPO N1 had been circulating in rumor form, however it looks like OPPO has since taken over the teasing. Granted, that doesn't mean we expect the rumors and leaks to end, but it does mean some official information is being revealed. Just yesterday we saw a bit about how the N1 was going to arrive sometime later this year and well, it now looks like we have a date and also some details in terms of the display size.
Yesterday, we got a glimpse of a bunch of leaked photos of Sony's upcoming "Lens Camera" accessories and discovered that the device can be used while not attached to a smartphone. That is only half of the story though, and the other half involves how the lenses can be attached to a smartphone if one wants to.
While we have seen countless leaks and details surrounding Sony's upcoming "Lens Camera" most of which were attached to a device, today a set of leaked press photos reveal you can use the camera device without a smartphone if you'd like. Making it a dedicated camera, of sorts. Previous rumors suggested a smartphone or tablet and a companion app would be required, but that doesn't appear to be the case.
