Huawei's P30 Pro is the smartphone to beat in 2019. Competing brands are going to be hard-pressed to do so, though, as Huawei's got a head-start on its camera tech. And there's no denying that camera tech is the standout feature of Huawei's most powerful, most stylish smartphone to date. But what makes the device so special?
The Nokia X71 might sound like the tech company is working on a spy-plane rather than a smartphone but that’s obviously not the case… unless Nokia’s hiding something from us. But no, the Nokia X71 is definitely a smartphone. One with a great many pixels at its disposal. We can get behind that. But before we get to check out the camera(s), it’s worth glancing at the screen. ...[Read More]
Fuji's Instax models are firmly rooted in the Polaroid days of yore but Canon's got something a little more modern on the way. Called the Canon Ivy Cliq (or the Ivy Cliq+, if you're feeling wealthy), these little image-spitting snappers are officially billed as "instant camera printers".
We're a long way out from Apple's annual iPhone reveal but that doesn't mean that folks aren't still (always) trying to puzzle what's coming next from the company. The newest talk about town? Apple's going to be hopping on the triple-camera bandwagon for the iPhone 11. And if it's true, helped along with an apparent design leak, we're not really sold on the design. It doesn't feel like something A...[Read More]
You’ve got to give it to Fujifilm, it sure knows how to grab headlines. While Canon and Nikon are announcing full-frame mirrorless cameras, Fuji’s giving that a skip and doubling down on its mirrorless APS-C and medium format (MF) lineups instead. Remember the GFX 50S mirrorless MF that redefined what a medium-format camera could be? Well, now Fujifilm’s made an even more portabl...[Read More]
We know… the full-fat Huawei Mate hasn’t even been announced yet but Huawei South Africa has confirmed that the Huawei Mate 20 Lite will be available locally from 5 October. This is a peculiar announcement as the Lite devices — budget versions of their fancier brethren — tend to be casually mentioned after or alongside the non-Lite ones, probably so they don’t steal any of the li...[Read More]
Fujifilm announced the X-T3 today, the latest addition to the company’s X-Series lineup of APS-C mirrorless cameras. The mirrorless camera announcements are coming thick and fast of late. Unlike Canon and Nikon, Fujifilm isn’t trying to hop on the full-frame mirrorless bandwagon. Instead, the newly announced X-T3 with its 26.1MP APS-C sensor, is an upgrade to the already excellent X-T2 (one ...[Read More]
Canon’s EOS range is getting a full-frame mirrorless addition, right after Nikon announced their first crack at a full-frame mirrorless camera. Finally there’s some solid competition for Sony in the full-frame mirrorless game that it’s been dominating with its A7 series and its legendary low-light performance. To help distinguish between its crop-sensor mirrorless range and the n...[Read More]
It’s that time of the year again, the time when we get to compare the latest flagship from the big names… before the iPhone arrives and the catch-up and leapfrog cycle starts all over again. Currently in the ring? Samsung’s jumbo Note 9 and Huawei’s triple-threat P20 Pro. Samsung’s S Pen-packing super phone features a larger screen, improved cameras, and other upgrade...[Read More]
