DJI unveils Mavic 2 drones and yes, now you can zoom

Drone- and gimbal-maker DJI has taken the wraps off its newest devices, a pair of updates to the Mavic Pro range — called the Mavic 2 series — that include new object-avoidance sensors to help pilots avoid crashing into things, and a choice of two cameras: a Hasselblad camera with a large, 1in CMOS sensor, and a more conventional 1/2.3in sensor camera that includes a zoom lens, which w...[Read More]

70 years of instant photos, thanks to inventor Edwin Land’s Polaroid camera

It probably happens every minute of the day: A little girl demands to see the photo her parent has just taken of her. Today, thanks to smartphones and other digital cameras, we can see snapshots immediately, whether we want to or not.

Why do people risk their lives for the perfect selfie?

Hands-on with the new Fujifilm X-H1 mirrorless camera
