Fujifilm Reportedly Has A New Mid-Range Camera In The Works

Fujifilm is known for their high-end mirrorless cameras like the X-Pro3, X-T4, and the X-H1. However, these cameras aren’t cheap and if you are a fan of Fujifilm but don’t want to break the bank, you might be interested to learn that the company could actually have a new mid-range camera in the works.

Apart from the cameras we mentioned above, the company does have some mid-range cameras like the X-T30 and the X-E3, but according to a report from Fuji Rumors, they have heard from their sources that apparently Fujifilm has two new mid-range cameras in the works, and that at least one of those cameras will be part of a brand new lineup.

Sony WH-1000XM4 Wireless Headphones Launched

It used to be that when it came to noise cancelling headphones, Bose would be the default choice for many. However, these days Sony is absolutely killing it and its WH1000 series has become a new fan favorite. In fact, if you’re looking for a new pair of noise cancelling headphones, Sony has unveiled their new headphones – the WH1000XM4.

These are the latest noise cancelling headphones from the company that carries on the tradition of their WH1000 lineup. While the design of the headphones looks like its predecessor, the changes made are mostly under the hood. According to Sony, some of the upgrades they’ve made includes a new Bluetooth audio system on a chip that apparently analyzes music and surrounding noise at a rate of 700 times per second.

Sony Could Have An Entry-Level Full Frame Mirrorless Camera In The Works

Want to get a full frame mirrorless camera? Unfortunately, full frame mirrorless cameras aren’t exactly cheap and Sony’s A7 is probably the cheapest you can expect from the company. However, that might not necessarily be the case in the future, at least according to Sony Alpha Rumors.

The publication is claiming that come September, Sony is expected to announce an entry-level full frame mirrorless camera that will be part of its mirrorless lineup. The naming of this camera is unclear, but it has been speculated to be called either the A5 or the A6, which kind of makes sense given that Sony’s mirrorless lineup consists of the A7 and A9 series.

How To Use A Custom Android Launcher

How To Use A Custom Android Launcher

One of the upsides of using Android is the ability to use custom launchers. Unlike iOS where users are more or less stuck with what Apple has given them, Android allows for a greater degree of customization.

If you’re not planning on rooting your Android device, launchers are a great way to customize your device without getting too technical and are usually safe and won’t mess up your phone.

Netflix For Android Now Supports Playback Speed Controls

Netflix For Android Now Supports Playback Speed Controls

On video platforms like YouTube or media apps like VLC, users are able to control the playback speed of their videos. They can slow things down or they can speed it up. The good news for Netflix users is that if you were hoping to get these kind of controls, you’ll be pleased to learn that it is now happening.

If you watch Netflix on Android, the company has recently confirmed that they are rolling out support for playback speed controls. This will let users speed up videos by 1.25x or 1.5x, or slow down videos by 0.5x or 0.75x. However, it seems that these settings will not be saved and users will need to manually speed up or slow down their videos with every video watched.

Microsoft Shuts Down Cortana For Ios And Android

Microsoft Shuts Down Cortana For iOS And Android

This is why it doesn’t really come as a surprise to learn that Microsoft has since announced that they will be shutting down the Cortana apps on both iOS and Android. According to Microsoft, “As we make this shift toward a transformational AI-powered assistant experience in Microsoft 365, we need to adjust our focus areas of innovation and development to give our customers assistance where they need it most. As a result, we are making changes to some U.S. consumer-centric features and functionalities with lower usage.”

This doesn’t mean that Microsoft is done with Cortana or that they are killing it off entirely. Instead Cortana will continue to live on within iOS and Android, but it will live on by being integrated within Microsoft’s 365 apps, so if you really have to use Cortana, you’ll still be able to access it within these apps.

Thanks to Game Mode, users can wake both the TV and PS5 at once with the DualSense wireless controller, and also seamlessly control their PS5 using just the TV remote.”

When Cuphead was launched, it was initially exclusive to Microsoft’s Xbox and Windows platforms. However, the good news for non-Xbox gamers is that if you own a PS4 and were hoping to see the game released for your console, you might be pleased to learn that your wish could be granted.

This is because some gamers have spotted a listing for the game on PSN. However, it seems that the listing was for international PSN Stores, but we imagine that if it is released, it should be available globally. There is no word on when it will be launching, but given its listing, we imagine that it should be soon enough.

Canon Patents Lens Adapter With An Active Cooling System

Canon Patents Lens Adapter With An Active Cooling System

If you’re just a casual photographer, there’s a very low chance that you might encounter an issue where your camera overheats. This usually happens to more professional photographers who might take photos non-stop or who record lengthy videos in high resolution. However, it seems that Canon might have an answer to that problem.

In a patent discovered by Canon News, it looks like Canon’s answer to cameras overheating would be to create a lens adapter that comes with an active cooling system that will help keep the camera cool during operation. How this works is that this lens adapter will feature vents on the top and a fan on the bottom.

Leaked Photo Hints At PS5's Customizability

With the PS4, when you bought the console you would need to choose the color right out of the gate. This is because once the console is chosen, you would basically have to live with your color choice. However, Sony could be thinking of making a different approach with the upcoming PS5 console.

In a post made on the A9VG forum, it shows several of the shell pieces of the PS5 presumably in a manufacturing facility somewhere. While we do expect that parts of the PS5 will be made separately, what’s interesting is the inside of these shells where it doesn’t appear to have any screws.

Alexa Will Soon Be Able To Control Ios And Android Apps

Alexa Will Soon Be Able To Control iOS And Android Apps

Apple’s iPhones and Google’s Android devices come with their own digital assistants in the form of Siri and Google Assistant. One of the advantages of having a native digital assistant is that it is deeply integrated into the operating system, allowing them to do things that third-party digital assistants can’t.

However, it seems that Amazon’s Alexa will soon start to creep into more iOS and Android apps as Amazon has announced what they are calling Alexa for Apps. This is a new feature that is currently in preview and basically what it does is that it allows Alexa more access to iOS and Android apps, where users who prefer using Alexa can now launch and control these apps to a certain extent.
