Small Robot Arm Can Perform In-Womb Surgery

Nobody likes the idea of going for surgery, but it is a necessary evil, so to speak, in order to bring about healing to a particular medical condition. Well, most of the surgeries are performed on children and adults, but what about those who are still in the womb? This question is about to be answered by a $17 million project that intends to successfully roll out robotic technologies which […]


Nikon D800 Successor Rumored For 26th June Announcement

A couple of years ago, Nikon announced the Nikon D800. However back in May, we caught wind of a rumor that Nikon could be looking to launch a replacement for the Nikon D800 and according to the folks at Nikon Rumors, they have managed to “confirm” that the replacement camera will be known as the Nikon D810. They also claim that the official announcement for the Nikon D810 will be […]


Google Reportedly Looking To Invest In Virgin Galactic

Google’s plans to acquire more satellites is not a new one. A couple of months ago, the company picked up Titan Aerospace, and just last week there were rumors that Google could be planning to spend as much as a billion dollars investing in satellites. Then just a couple of days ago, it was announced that Google had acquired another satellite imaging company in the form of Skybox. However it […]


Nikon D800S Rumored For June

A couple of years ago, Nikon announced the D800 DSLR camera. Given that it’s been two years since the device was launched, we guess it’s time for a possible successor, and according to the rumors, it seems that a Nikon D800 successor could be due for an announcement in June. The camera has been tentatively referred to as the D800S and will allegedly be based on the Nikon D800/D800E. So […]

Nikon D7100 Hands-On Review

[Imaging Week] The Nikon D7100 is the younger sibling of the famous Nikon D7000, a star product which was launched in late 2010. On paper, the Nikon D7100 is much more of an upgrade than its numbering scheme may lead you to believe. First of all, the sensor goes to 24 Megapixel (from 16), the auto-focus (AF) system now samples 51 points, and the video recording mode can shoot up […]


Canon EOS Rebel SL1 Hands-On Review (EOS 100D)

[Imaging Week] As Canon’s DSLR line of product increasingly comes under higher pressure from mirrorless camera from Sony or Olympus, Canon has explored a couple of ways to counter the competition without cannibalizing its own product line (too much). It’s fair to say that the first attempt with a mirrorless EOS M has been a “flop” at best, and our own review of the Canon EOS M shows that the […]


Canon EOS Rebel T5i Hands-On Review (EOS 700D)

[Imaging Week] The arrival of the Canon EOS T5i on the DSLR scene didn’t make much waves, and for good reason: this update of the T4i (650D) is so close to its predecessor that you have to dig into the software to find a difference: the EOS T5i can preview the Creative Filters in real-time, which is one of the most underwhelming (although welcome) feature addition to this camera. Yes, […]


Canon EOS 6D Hands-On Review

Since I’m at Imaging Week in Seoul/Korea this week, I thought that I would spend some hands-on time with the Canon EOS 6D that was announced recently. I use a Canon 50D on a daily basis, so it’s nice to see how far Canon has gone since I bought the 50D back in the days. The Canon EOS 6D is quite different: it’s a full-frame DSLR, which makes it a […]


Legitimate Use Case For A SmartPhone Remote Camera App (Finally)

We’re at Imaging Week in Seoul, Korea and I found a good use case for those camera remote control apps on Android or iOS (here, this guy runs it on the Samsung Galaxy S3). I’ve been in many camera media briefings where various brands were touting this type of capability, but I had yet to see someone using this in the real world. Now it’s done, and he really needed […]

You can get a custom-built plastic case that has complex sealed buttons that let you use your camera almost normally while keeping the water out, or there is the solution of putting the camera in a bag, and sealing it!
