Click here to read our Fuji XF10 Preview After discontinuing the Fujifilm X70, there has been something of a hole in the X Series lineup for users looking for a compact fixed-lens camera that costs less than the $1,000-plus price tag of the X100F. No longer, with the new Fuji XF10. The XF10 utilizes an 18.5mm (28mm equivalent) f/2.8 built-in lens, like the X70, but includes a 24.
I’ve known for some time that Nikon actually designs their own sensors, to a fairly minute level of detail. I think this is almost unknown in the photo community; most people just assume that “design” in Nikon’s case simply consists of ordering-up different combinations of specs from sensor manufacturers, picking a feature from column “A”, another from column &
Although you may sniff meat to see if it's still OK to eat, doing so is a very subjective method of detecting spoilage, as it's dependent on the sensitivity of your sense of smell. With that in mind, scientists have now developed a more objective alternative, in the form of a gas sensor that communicates with your smartphone...

The rotors on camera drones can do serious damage to human flesh if the two come in contact. Researchers are working on a new flesh sensor that would stop a rotor so fast that an approaching finger can be spared from harm.If the concept of detecting flesh and stopping a spinning blade sounds familiar, it’s because similar technologies already exist. In the world of table saws, the company S
Canon first revealed its ultrahigh-sensitivity CMOS image sensor back in 2010, where its gargantuan proportions were given as 202 x 205 mm (7.95 x 8.07 in) – almost 40 times the size of a 35 mm full-frame CMOS sensor. Now the veteran camera maker has revealed that the sensor has been used to record video of meteors at a level "so dark that image capture had not been possible until now."..
In 2010, Canon revealed that it was developing the world's largest CMOS sensor, one measuring about 40 times larger than a full-frame CMOS sensor. The company has now added more details about the project to its website, including a discussion of a real-world application.Whereas a 35mm full-frame sensor measures 36 x 24mm, Canon's massive chip measures about 200 x 200mm. Canon gives a little detai
It can be interesting, for the more tech-inclined photographer, to speculate about where camera makers are getting their sensors from. However, to be truly certain, you'd need to tear the camera apart and see what's printed around the edge of the chip.ChipMod - a camera modification company - has done just that, and has posted its findings on the AstroCN forum, showing that the D850's sensor has
Leica Camera has announced a new compact camera that features a 24-360mm F3.3-6.4 zoom lens and a 20MP 1” BSI-CMOS sensor. Essentially a re-badged Panasonic Lumix ZS/TZ200, the Leica C-Lux will save Raw and JPEG files, will offer 4K video and has a viewfinder with a 2.33 million-dot resolution.Video users will be able to extract 8MP JPEGs from the camera’s 4K video feature, which will have a fast
When you are out in the field, are you a photographer or a data collector? Blake Rudis of f64 Academy considers himself both, perhaps tending more toward the latter. What does it mean to collect data using your camera? When you capture an image using a digital camera, the sensor captures a lot of data. Light data, color data, etc., and then you can manipulate the data captured in the image file
Although there already are devices that allow you to objectively check if you've got bad breath (aka halitosis), they typically require a power source and an involved calibration process, plus they often aren't very sensitive or quick to respond. A newly-developed sensor, however, could change that... Continue Reading Simple, inexpensive sensor detects bad breath Category: Science Tags:
