If history is any guide we should be just weeks away from the launch of a new iPhone. Rumours are running wild about what changes Apple will make. As always, a better camera setup is expected, but this could be the model that actually delivers a longer telephoto lens.
A long lens is the missing link for Apple.
It’s believed a periscope zoom is coming, offering optical zoom levels up to 6 times magnification. The rumours also suggest that this zoom lens may be continuous zoom. This would enable a smooth transition from wide to tight, rather than choosing between a 1 times or three times magnification on each occasion.
The top model is expected to get these features but it won’t be cheap.
Samsung and Google have impressive longer lens cameras so Apple is playing catch up here – but depending on how they execute .. they could and should edge ahead.
All models are expected to have the USB-C as Apple finally swaps out the lightning port.
SAMSUNG’S ODYSSEY NEO G9 57-INCH CURVED MONITOR HAS TO BE SEEN TO BE SEEN TO BE BELIEVED
And I’ve seen it and it is incredible. During the week I saw the full range of Samsung Gaming monitors – some that double for normal work computers.
But the big news was the announcement of the Odyssey Neo G9 57-inch curved monitor. It’s the world’s first dual UHD monitor and uses mini LED backlighting. The 1000R curvature houses a 32:9 screen which is the same as two 32” UHD monitors side-by-side. With a 240Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time the G9 is a feast for your eyes.
There’s also a 49 inch OLED curved screen with a 0.03ms response time and 240Hz refresh rate. It is beautiful as you can see in the image above.
And the 2022 55-inch Odyssey Ark Curved UHD Gaming Monitor can rotate. In the horizonal mode it was ideal for F1 driving rig.
GOOGLE IS GIVING US ANOTHER REASON TO BACKUP OUR PHOTOS
Google Photos is rolling out an update for its PC browser editor in Google Photos.
The upgrade gives users some of the same editing abilities they would find on the Google Photos mobile app.
In this segment I demo some of the features like HDR and SKY adjustment. At this point you have to be a Google One subscriber to use these but they underscore to power of the browser editor.
This makes editing mass photos a lot easier on a big screen. It’s also a compelling reason to upgrade your storage with Google. It’s been a lifesaver for me over the years.
Check it out the next time you log into Google Photos on your Mac or PC.
