Huawei P10 vs. P10 Plus camera comparison: Tiny improvements

Just how much difference does the P10 Plus’s f/1.8 lens make?

In addition to a bigger, higher-res screen and the ability to max out your RAM and storage, the jump from the Huawei P10 to P10 Plus gets you Huawei’s most advanced Leica camera to date. The trusty f/2.2 Summarit-branded lens, used in the past a generation of Huawei flagships, makes way for a brighter f/1.8 Summilux aperture.

On paper that should allow for a modest improvement  [Read More…]

The beauty of having a good camera in every pocket

Cheaper smartphones that don’t suck mean better cameras, and better photos.

While the rest of the team has been playing with phones that border (or safely fall into) the designation of ‘expensive,’ I’ve been erring on the side of budget, switching between four devices that are, to me, just as interesting, as much for what they lack as what they offer.

One of those phones is the ZTE Blade V8 Pro, a phone that barely got any  [Read More…]

The soon-to-launch Galaxy S8 will offer ridiculously high frame rate 1000 fps slow motion video capture, according to new reports. That’s over four times the frame rate of the Galaxy S7’s 240 fps video, and even a hair more than Sony’s upcoming Xperia XZ Premium with 960 fps.

Insta360 Air review: Here, have a weird (pretty good) selfie camera

Finally, a plug and play 360-degree camera.

As much as I love taking photos with my trusty Ricoh Theta, it’s not the easiest thing in the world to use. I have to remember to keep it charged, the Bluetooth connection with my phone can occasionally be a little finicky, and while it’s thin enough to be pocketable it’s also long and needs a protective sleeve to keep the lenses safe. Most other 360-degree cameras are worse, especially  [Read More…]

Huawei P10 ranks near top of DxOMark camera tests, but can’t beat the Pixel

Picture this.

The Huawei P10 has a lot to love, especially with a Leica-powered dual camera array and a manageable one hand-friendly size. The setup may be close to last year’s P9, but it’s taken the Mate 9’s excellent 20MP monochrome sensor to give it a big boost in the detail department, coming close to the Google Pixel’s photo quality in DxOMark’s tests.

What exactly does that mean?

In the breakdown of the P10’s setup, DxO  [Read More…]
