photo results

Last week Flickr announced that the iPhone 4 leapfrogged the Nikon D90 to become the most popular camera used by members of the photo hosting site. So we asked readers: is your cell phone your primary camera?

566 people weighed in to answer the question, and the results were pretty close. A quarter (142 people) said their phone's camera is their primary camera because they don't see the need to carry around an additional device. 24 percent of respondents (136 people) said their phone isn't their primary camera because they like using a regular camera. About a fifth (117 people) said they use both a standalone camera and a camera phone. The good quality of their phone's camera is the reason 18 percent of readers (100 people) reported that their phone is their primary camera while a lousy camera is the reason 13 percent (71 people) said they don't use their phone as their primary camera.

First ever aerial footage of uncontacted Amazon tribe surfaces

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Cameras, Videos

Believe it or not, there are still tribes on our planet who have never made contact with anyone from the "modern world." This is the first time that aerial footage was taken of one of the world's last uncontacted tribes has been released. Obviously, this is from a plane, but using some expensive cameras and super zoom lenses, there's no shaky hand syndrome or anything like that. This is great, amazing footage and makes you take a step back and realize that even in a world full of non-stop distractions, there are areas where things are much more simple.

iOS 5 to bring major improvements to Camera app

iOS 5 camera app

During today's WWDC 2011 keynote, Apple's Scott Forstall introduced some major upgrades to the Camera app that will ship with iOS 5. Some of the features that have us excited are things like direct access to the camera app right from the lock screen. Next to the swipe to unlock is a camera button that you can tap to take a picture quickly. Secondly, when you're in the camera app, you'll be able to use the volume-up button to snap the photo, rather than having to tap on the screen. Third, you'll be able to edit your photos right in the photo app. Apple is aiming to make their Camera and Photo apps your one-stop shop for images on your mobile devices.

Nikon Coolpix P500 review

If you want to capture the action close up, the 12.1-megapixel Nikon Coolpix P500, with its 36x zoom lens, will get you right there. But with this digital camera, you get more than just an insanely long lens. Good image quality, speed, and a well-rounded feature set, are part of the deal. Just keep in mind: The P500 is big, since it houses a big lens, but you don't get a large sensor, like you would with a compact interchangeable lens camera or a Digital SLR. Read on for our full review of the Coolpix P500, and how it stacks up against the competition.

Seventh-gen iPod nano to bring back the camera?

iPod nano with camera

There's further indication that the seventh-generation iPod nano could feature a camera.

A report obtained by AppleInsider that first appeared on Taiwanese Apple blog tw.apple.pro allegedly shows that the iPod nano will add a low-res 1.3 megapixel camera, eschew its clip, and retain its current small form factor and touch screen display.

Citing a source called "Ray" from California, the Taiwanese site claims the iPod nano will lose the clip because it would interfere with the camera.

The larger fifth-generation nano included a video camera, widescreen display, and video playback. These features were stripped from the sixth-generation edition of the device in favor of smaller form with a belt clip on the back and a multitouch display.
