To fulfill the artistic impulse to connect with and replicate that old-time flair, Alien Skin s Exposure X $149 is available as a standalone photo filter or plug-in to Adobe Photoshop or Lightroom, offering myriad presets and variations.Exposure X stylizes a scene for a distinctive look by simulating both old and modern films with 15 categories of color and 12 categories of black and white in familiar brands like Agfa, Kodak, Fuji, and others.The Autochrome filter harks back to a color process developed in 1907, which combined layers of dyed potato starch grains on glass plates.Alien Skin applies scientific analysis to older and discontinued films, microscopically analyzing film grain to deliver characteristic looks.As of this version, Exposure X doubles as an organizer, letting you import images directly from your camera card and view images in their existing folders and locations without importing them into the app.No matter how many edits you apply to an image nothing will permanently change unless you export and save it as a new file.
In previous years, the only time you really get to hear about a smartphone's camera performance was in a review, sponsored or otherwise, days or weeks after the device goes to market.But with mobile photography taking on a more central role in smartphones today, you just can't get those reviews soon enough.DxOMark regarded the smartphone as having good HDR results when the feature is activated, thought at times inconsistent.Exposure is actually decent when indoors with low-light though there is some visible luminance noise.Of course, it performed best in bright light, where it exhibited better stabilization and noise reduction.But, then again, the smartphone is a mid-range device, so it will perform less spectacularly in other aspects.

Similarly the P9 has tools for delivering HDR images, night and timelapse photography, special light painting modes, and even direct access to the device's monochrome camera.I've quickly grown fond of the P9's monochrome photography tools, and its colour effects are ideal companions to Instagram's library of filters.Perhaps the most important of them is Microsoft's Office Lens, which lets me quickly take pictures of slides and whiteboards, and drop them into a OneNote notebook ready for annotation as part of my personal, searchable archive of meetings and conference sessions going back more than a decade.It's easy to find big name apps like Photoshop and Snapseed, but there's a long tail of applications that's hard to explore.Drilling into the app list lets you see reviews, but most of the time they're not particularly informative.Then there's the perennial issue of identifying the real reviews from real users, and trying to determine how their taste aligns with yours.
There s no shortage of apps if you re trying to find an event to go to, but now it s the other side s turn.Launching today, it is designed to help organizers of events big and small keep some semblance of sanity as the crazy world of event management rages around them.The app also tackles a couple of less obvious challenges with event registrations, such as e-signing of waivers such as legal disclaimers, film / photography releases and terms and conditions.The app also packs in an offline mode, so your event doesn t come crashing down to a smoldering pile of disappointment if the Wi-Fi network takes a stage-dive into the concrete floor and sinks into unconsciousness for a few minutes.The app provides organizers and volunteers with the tools to effortlessly keep lines moving on event day, said Tressa Schultze, Product Manager at Events.com.The app is only available for Android for now, citing the availability of affordable Android devices and an advantage in speed-to-market.

Short of making its own smart, self-driving car, the Chinese superstar company practically has its fingers in almost every segment in the consumer tech market, either directly or through partner manufacturers.So when rumors and now an official teaser, show up about Xiaomi making its drone, we're not exactly shocked.Almost everyone has a drone-ish product nowadays anyway.Most drones have some form of connection with smartphones, either for photography or for flight control, including "Follow Me" functionality.But, given this is Xiaomi we're talking about, also probably dirt cheap.The bigger question in the global market's mind is whether it will fly to other markets as well, particularly in the US.
Where the EOS-1D X could shoot 180 JPEGs or 38 raw files in a single burst, the Mk II is able to record an unlimited number of JPEGs and up to 170 raw files.The autofocus tracking is aided by the 1D X Mk II's new 360,000-pixel RGB IR metering sensor, which provides improved subject detection – an interesting example of how metering and focusing work closely together in the latest cameras.This makes it easier to find, especially in the early days when you're familiarising yourself with the camera – and it's something that Nikon hasn't managed to do with its D5.While these results are good for ISO51,600, where possible I would keep the sensitivity to ISO25,600 or lower, as both the raw and JPEG files look better with less noise and more detail respectively.The bright blast caused the camera to reduce the exposure a little in comparison with earlier shots, but it's nothing a little brightening wouldn't fixMetering is taken care of by the EOS iSA Intelligent Subject Analysis system, which has a dedicated 360,000-pixel RGB IR sensor and which divides the scene into 216 zones.Our dynamic range lab results confirm that the camera scores well, beating or matching the 1D X for much of the sensitivity range.
Samsung's made one, Nikon's made one, Facebook's made one that you can't actually buy and GoPro is rumoured to be making one.The 360 Cam is nicely compact, although not so much that it matches up with LG s description of it as lipstick-sized – it s more like two lipsticks duct taped together, to be honest.Connecting the G5 and the 360 Cam is nicely simple, thanks to the LG Friends Manager app.These are issues you get with a lot of small, cheap cameras, though, and it doesn t pay to focus too much on them – you re going to have to spend a lot more than £200 if you want professional-looking 360-degree snaps and clips.NB: If you're viewing the video above on our mobile site or in certain desktop browsers you might not get the full 360-degree experience.I imagine that in a year or two, 360-degree cameras will have come a long way in terms of image quality, and LG s first foray into the market will look decidedly outdated.

"I'll be the last person on earth who is still able to wear a usable pair of Glass — it's my mission!"  Firstenberg, Graham, and several other Glass owners we spoke to, still believe the headset is unrivaled in its utility for things like hands-free photography or getting directions while driving." While donning Glass in 2016 is a conversation starter for people, Google itself has refused to discuss its plans for the future.It stopped supporting the current hardware and software, and hasn't acknowledged reports that it's working on an enterprise version of the device, even when a pair leaked on eBay earlier this year.At IO, Google announced a slick new smart speaker and a jacket that controls your phone, but didn't make a peep about its Glass efforts, which now fall under a division called Project Aura.For now, the attitude of a loyal Glass lover is to just try to get as much use out of it as possible until the hardware wears out."NOW WATCH: A SpaceX rocket just did something not even its engineers thought was possibleLoading video...
@meagnacarta May 22, 2016The tradition of throwing the hats into the air after graduating has been around for more than 100 years, but a university in the U.K. now wants to do things a little differently.Citing safety concerns, officials at the University of East Anglia UEA said this year graduates should simply pretend to throw their mortarboards skyward, adding that the photography firm taking the pictures will Photoshop them in later.Penguin Photography said it s been taking graduation photos for the last 20 years, offering graduates two prints: a formal photograph and a mortar board-throwing photograph.However, the U.K. s Health and Safety Executive HSE described the ban as unnecessary.Geoff Cox, the executive s head of public sector, said colleges should research the facts before repeating tired health and safety myths like this one.We usually find the concern is actually about the hats being returned in good condition.
Photos of the parts, which were posted to Chinese site Weibo, also show a storage option of 256GB.The dual-camera feature has been rumor and speculated on for some time now, with leaked previously leaked images and renders showing two lenses placed side-by-side on the back on the device.One thing that has been constantly mentioned, however, is that the dual-camera setup will be limited to the larger model iPhone 7, allowing Apple to market it as a flagship feature for 5.5-inch device.The new parts photo, seen here, also shows three memory chips placed next to the camera module: 16GB, 64GB, and 256GB.Just a few days ago, another leak focused on the smaller iPhone 7, with a new photo revealing antenna bands that take the form of a single strip that runs along the top and bottom edges.Another new detail is that the device will have laser auto-focus, a feature that improves low-light photography.
