These days our smartphones are more than capable of taking excellent photos, but there are times when a dedicated camera can still get the job done a lot better. This is namely due to a variety of factors, such as having a bigger sensor, bigger lens, better quality glass, and so on. If you’re after such a camera but rather not deal with having to change lenses, Fujifilm’s upcoming X100V could be worth checking out.
According to the latest rumors, it has been suggested that the X100V could actually be borrowing at least one feature from the X-Pro3, and that is its two-way tilt screen. In the past, the tilt screens on Fujifilm’s cameras have typically been limited to folding downwards, but with the X-Pro3, it can also flip out from the side.
In recent times, we have started to notice a growing concern about people, especially kids, spending way too much time on their smartphones. This has resulted in companies like Apple and Google introduce tools that allow users to manage their time on their phones, and also more robust parental controls.
However, given that Android allows handset makers to customize the OS and create something more unique to them, this has resulted in different experiences across the board, but that could change soon. According to the folks at XDA Developers, it seems that they have discovered that in future Android devices, Google will require handset makers to introduce some form of digital wellbeing solution along with parental controls.
Computers can get hot when you do a lot of heavy processing on it. The same can be said about phones, but did you know that cameras can run hot too? If you’re a casual photographer, this might not be a problem you run into, but if you do shoot quite heavily, then there might be times when your camera could overheat and you’d be forced to turn it off and let it cool down.
For working professionals who need their cameras to be continuously operating, this can be an issue, but Sony could have a solution to that. According to a report from Sony Alpha Rumors, they have been tipped off by a reliable source who allegedly saw a prototype of the Sony A7S III. From what they were told, this prototype had an interesting feature in which is apparently comes with a cooling vent on the back.
These days, digital cameras usually come with an LCD screen on the back that can be tilted. This allows users, especially vloggers, to turn the screen towards them so that they can see themselves while the film to ensure that they are in the frame. It also allows photographers to get down low or up high for some unique perspectives.
Unfortunately, not all camera makers have adopted this feature, especially Fujifilm when it comes to their X-Pro series of rangefinder mirrorless cameras. However, according to a report from Fuji Rumors, that is expected to change with the X-Pro3 in which they have heard from “trusted sources” that the X-Pro3 could come with a “unique” tilt screen.
We have been hearing rumors that a new Fujifilm X-Pro3 could be in the works and now according to a new report from Fuji Rumors, one of the alleged new features of the upcoming camera could be the inclusion of a tilt screen. For photographers using other brands, a tilt screen is hardly groundbreaking.
However, as Fuji Rumors notes, Fujifilm has in the past been kind of resistant to the idea of tilt displays for its rangefinder cameras, like the X-Pro series. The company has employed the use of the feature in other models except its X-Pro series, the X100 series, and the X-E series, so this could be quite useful for some.
This means that they’d need to load up the PS4 just to play the game, which can be a bit troublesome just for a single game, but the good news is that the game could be going cross-gen. During an interview with Game Informer, Square Enix’s President and CEO Yosuke Matsuda hinted that the game could be launched for current-gen and next-gen consoles.
According to Matsuda, “It’s the hottest topic at the moment and we thought you might ask us that. I believe that our teams have made it so that the game will support both the next generation and the current generation of consoles. I believe it is being developed so that it is going to be playable on both, so I’m not really concerned about that and I believe that the fans are also going to be able to enjoy it on both, including the next-generation of consoles.”
Back in the days of Diablo, some of the developers behind the game left Blizzard where they formed their own studio, Runic Games, which resulted in the Torchlight series, which many had hailed back then as a possible alternative to Diablo for those who enjoy this style of game.
The good news is that if you enjoyed the Torchlight series of games, you’ll be pleased to learn that Torchlight II has since been announced for the PS4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch. For those unfamiliar, Torchlight II was originally launched on the PC back in 2012, which means that this is by no means a new game.
One of the things about Android is that beyond the two-year mark, there are no longer guarantees that your phones will receive the latest Android updates. This is understandable as Android manufacturers would prefer to focus their resources and efforts on their newer phones, although it is a bummer for those who’d rather hold onto their phones for longer periods of time.
However, the good news for those who own the OnePlus 5 and 5T smartphones, it seems that OnePlus has confirmed that these devices are indeed eligible for updates to Android Q when the update does eventually roll out to the masses. This was confirmed in a post on the OnePlus forums where OnePlus revealed that the Android Q Developer Preview was released for the OnePlus 7 Pro, 6, and 6T handsets.
When it comes to a camera’s capabilities, there are many factors involved that helps create a high-quality image. For example, the lens of the camera needs to be good, the software used to process the image, and the sensors used by the camera as well. However, it seems that in the future, there is a chance that Sony’s camera sensors could get a boost with AI.
This is based on an overview of Sony’s semiconductor business where Sony talks about how they plan to integrate AI processor directly into its sensor hardware. According to the overview, these sensors seem to be more targeted towards mobile, automotives, and industrial purposes, but as Sony Alpha Rumors points out, there is a chance that this tech could trickle down to Sony’s cameras as well.
We had recently heard a rumor that the Fujifilm X100F successor, potentially known as the X100V or X200, will only be arriving in 2020. We are pretty excited for it given how good the X100 series has been, and now according to a new report from Fuji Rumors, it seems that there are more reasons to be excited for the camera.
This is because according to the publication’s sources, they have been told that the camera will come with a new lens. Why is this a big deal? For years, the X100 series comes with a 23mm f/2.0 fixed lens. In a way, this is what makes the camera so appealing because a 23mm lens is actually a pretty decent general purpose lens, where it’s not too wide or not too zoomed, making it idea for a walkaround lens.
