Google used this ridiculous 5-phone case to fine-tune the Pixel 3’s portrait mode

Thursday, November 29th, 2018

We were pretty impressed with how the Pixel 2's portrait mode worked, and Google's deep dive into the technical details was easily one of my favorite reads of last year. The company must have recognized what a hit it was, as a new explanation for the differences behind the Pixel 3's depth-sensing tech was just published. As always nowadays, a big chunk of the changes are due to the magic of neural networks, but Google also has a "Frankenphone" 5-Pixel case to thank for the Pixel 3's Portrait progress.

Arlo BF deals: 5-camera Pro 2 bundle $700 at Costco ($100 off), 1st-gen refurb kits of 3- to 5-packs $200-300 on Woot

Thursday, November 22nd, 2018

Arlo's Pro cameras are wireless, weather-resistant ways to kit out your home with smart security cameras, but they're a bit on the expensive side. For some perspective now the Arlo Pro 2 5-pack is a hair under $1,000 over at Amazon. But if you're a Costco member, right now you can pick up that five-camera bundle for $700, and Woot has refurbished three-, four-, and five-camera kits for $200-300.

Unlocking the bootloader on Sony phones no longer wrecks the camera in Pie

Tuesday, November 20th, 2018

Sony has been kind enough to let Xperia device owners unlock their bootloaders for years. That's an option that fewer and fewer OEMs offer, but it comes with some very real drawbacks in Sony's case. Unlocking an Xperia device would clear all DRM keys, thus turning your camera into hot garbage. There's good news, though. It appears that the Android Pie update no longer cripples the camera on unlocked devices.

This new mirrorless camera runs Android and supports Canon lenses

Sunday, November 4th, 2018

Do you remember the Samsung Galaxy Camera? It was essentially a Galaxy S3 with a larger 21x optical zoom lens. While many saw it as a pointless product, especially since it didn't compete with DSLRs or mirrorless cameras, Samsung was definitely on to something. The recently-announced 'YN450' from Chinese tech firm Yongnuo could be considered a spiritual successor — it's a full-featured mirrorless camera with Android.

Yongnu says the device uses a 16MP Four Thirds sensor, capable of shooting 4K video at 30FPS.
