At a mind-boggling 4.4 trillion frames per second (FPS), the new STAMP (Sequentially Timed All-optical Mapping Photography) system developed by two Japanese universities is claimed to be the world’s fastest camera. Taking pictures at a resolution of 450 x 450 pixels, the new image-capturing device is purported to be so fast that it can be used to photograph the conduction of heat, which travels at a speed equivalent to one-sixth the velocity of light.  Read More

Sony has added to its line-up of mirrorless cameras with the A5100, a small but seemingly very capable shooter which fits in between the entry-level A5000 and the more enthusiast-focused A6000. The new camera features a 24.3-megapixel APS-C sensor, a super-fast autofocus system, a tilting touchscreen monitor, and built-in Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity.  Read More

The Qudos Action light, mounted alongside a GoPro Hero 3 White edition camera

We've seen a plethora of accessories for the GoPro Hero actioncam cropping up over the past few years, including everything from stabilizers to drones to helmet-mounted poles. Surprisingly, though, except for scuba-specific models, there's been almost nothing in the way of lights. Australian bike gadget manufacturer Knog recently set out to fill that void, by releasing its Qudos Action light earlier this month. I recently had a chance to get my hands on the thing, and liked what it had to offer.  Read More

These days, with most people toting camera-packing smartphones, friends and families act as a veritable film crew, ready to capture important moments from a multitude of angles. But editing the footage into a cohesive whole can be a time-consuming chore. Now a team at Disney Research has developed an algorithm that automatically edits hours of raw footage into something less tedious to sit through.  Read More

A GoRigIt prototype in use

Despite the ever-increasing popularity of the GoPro Hero actioncam, there's still not even one model of the darn thing that has a viewfinder. Users can buy a $70 add-on LCD screen, although if they're using a newer Hero, they can also just utilize its Wi-Fi connectivity to view the camera's output on their existing smartphone. The GoRigIt case makes it easier to take this approach, but joining the phone to the GoPro.  Read More

Canon has revealed a pair of new PowerShot bridge cameras for people who want big zooms, on a budget. The DSLR-styled SX520 HS boasts a massive 24-1,008-mm equivalent zoom lens, and the SX400 IS isn't far behind with its 30x 24-720-mm equivalent. Both cameras also feature optical image stabilization to help tame those monster zooms.  Read More

Gizmag helps you choose the best camera for your next vacation

What camera will you take on your next vacation? Maybe it needs to be small enough to carry as you trek to Machu Picchu, or survive underwater when you go scuba-diving in the Bahamas. It might need enough zoom to get up close with animals on a safari in the Maasai Mara, or the low-light image quality to capture the streets of Paris at night. Let Gizmag help you choose the best camera for your next vacation.  Read More

The Hasselblad CFV-50c features a 50-megapixel CMOS sensor

Hasselblad has revealed that its iconic V System is set to get new lease of life, with the release of a new CMOS sensor-based digital back. The new digital back, which will work with almost every V camera made since 1957, is said to offer the same functionality and performance as the recent H5D-50c camera.  Read More

The CSIRO's HeatWave is a handheld 3D thermal imaging prototype

Thermal imaging has proven itself to be a useful adjunct to physical testing in areas including engineering, health, and agriculture. Until now, however, conventional 3D thermal imaging use has largely been restricted due to the specialized technical knowledge required to operate it and interpret the results. To address this, Australia's CSIRO has developed a prototype tool called HeatWave that is a lightweight, high-resolution 3D scanner that is claimed to be not only easy to carry, but easy to use as well.  Read More
