Fujifilm has just announced its latest Instax camera, the Instax Mini LiPlay. Like prior Instax Mini cameras, the Mini LiPlay takes lo-fi rectangular images that are developed instantly. It also has the ability to capture digital images and audio at the same time, which you can view on its LCD screen or transfer to your phone through Fujifilm’s Mini LiPlay app. It’s like a smaller version of the Instax Square SQ10 from two years ago, with a new added gimmick. It will be available starting on June 14th for $159.95.

Fujifilm’s Instax cameras, synonymous with influencers and the occasional sweet 16 party, have never been known for their impressive image quality or high-end features. They exist to capture high contrast aesthetic prints…

DJI Osmo Action hands-on: GoPro should be worried

DJI just announced the Osmo Action, the company’s first action camera. It’s a direct competitor to GoPro’s Hero 7 Black, matching it on almost every spec while also offering a few completely unique features — like a front-facing selfie screen. It costs $349 and is available now.

While we’re used to seeing DJI’s products in the sky, the company’s new camera can be placed on helmets, bike frames, or electric skateboards since it works with almost all GoPro mounts that are already out there. The camera is also built to survive the elements: it’s waterproof (up to 11 meters), shockproof (up to 1.5 meters / 5 feet), but it’s still pretty light at about 0.3 lbs.

The Osmo Action has a 12-megapixel camera capable of 4K 60 fps video at 100 Mbps…

Samsung’s Galaxy Buds are everything but the basics

As someone who is either wearing or carrying headphones around almost all day, I was excited to try Samsung’s Galaxy Buds. The $129.99 wireless earbuds were my shiny gleam of hope for headphones that would let me cut cords and forget about some of the tech I’m carrying around. I’ve tried AirPods, but I didn’t like all the ambient noise; and although the Jabra Elite 65t have good audio quality, they don’t stay in my ears.

But once I started living the cord-cutting future with the Buds, I realized the importance of the fundamentals. For me, a pair of headphones has three seemingly simple jobs: play music, take calls, and be comfortable. Anything else is luxury. And although I want that luxury in my life, I won’t sacrifice the necessities…

Pro-level mirrorless cameras have been Sony’s game for years, but now Canon has come to play with the EOS R, a full-frame entry into the future of slimmer, more powerful cameras.

Canon has put out mirrorless cameras before with the M line, which had a smaller APS-C sensor, but the EOS R is its first with a full frame, 30-megapixel CMOS sensor. It also has a brand-new RF lens mount to go with it. All of these lenses have a control ring on them that can be customized to settings such as ISO, shutter speed, aperture, and more. But instead of having image stabilization integrated into the camera, like Sony, Canon builds stabilization into the lenses themselves.

The EOS R uses the same batteries as most of Canon’s DSLR cameras, and it has a…

There are plenty of cameras in the sea, and not all are made equally. Maybe you’re looking to build up your professional portfolio, you want to stick to an OG film camera for that classic look, or maybe you’re just looking for something to up your Instagram game. The first step to finding out which camera is right for you is asking yourself what you’ll use it for most often and how much money you want to spend.

For the amateur photographers

If your latest iPhone or Pixel cameras aren’t cutting it for your ‘grams and you want to take it that extra step, my personal favorite is the Sony RX100 Mark IV. For around $1,000, it can take photos in RAW, quickly pair with your phone, and shoot really nice 4K videos. One of my favorite features is…
