The life-logging camera fad is over. It didn’t last long, did it? But why? My best guess is, having a camera stuck on you isn’t half as fun, plus it probably make folks you come across uncomfortable knowing that you may be filming them. The solution? FOMOcamera. Billed as the most wearable and customizable camera, FOMOcamera is basically a badge camera. In other words, it is a camera incognito as a badge in whatever design you fancy. Perfect for ladies for capturing men in the act of leering at their breasts instead of their eyes when conversing with them. Damn. I’d better stay away from ladies wearing a badge like this for I may be caught in the act. Sorry, can’t help it. Most men are hardwired to detect beauty and I am not going to pretend I am an exception. Continue reading FOMOcamera: Life-logging Has Never Been This Discreet And Customizable!
Remember Lytro? The ‘shoot first, focus and refocus later’ camera? Well, Insta360, the company that specializes in 360 imaging devices, has up the ante. Granted, Insta360 ONE can’t actually let you focus and refocus later, however, the camera’s “FreeCapture” technology” does allow you to shoot a 360 footage and decide on which part of video to retrieve as stills or as a short 1080p clips. I don’t know about you, but to me Insta360 ONE is nothing short of a dream come true. I have always imagine this to happen in the future, but it looks the future is already here.

Here’s a quick one. You remember Ricoh Theta 360-degree Digital Camera from a few years ago? It was among the first 360 camera back then and since then, Ricoh hasn’t stop dabbling in. It was never cheap, though. In fact, it is kind of pricey. Anyways, Ricoh must have felt the heat of the competitions and decided that it is high time to slash the price of its new Ricoh Theta SC 360, which the company described as a “mass-market camera,” to $199.95. That’s a good 100 bucks off the original advertised price. The move is also to coincide with U.S. summer time where consumers are expected to utilize more of imaging devices of such nature. Continue reading Ricoh Slashes Theta SC 360 Camera From $299 to $199

You must be wondering who in the world would do that? Well, apparently, Canon Japan is doing just that. But no, Canon Japan did not actually made the drone. According to a report, the drone is developed by a Japanese drone maker called ProDrone which Canon has invested back in 2016. ProDrone, if your recall, is the same company that makes the creepy robotic arm-equipped drone and the wall-clinging drone, and so, there should be no question about the flying rig’s track records. However, unlike specialty maker like DJI, the Japanese imaging equipment company has other target in mind. The company’s first imaging drone (technically, it is not the company’s), PD6E2000-AW-CJ1, is an industrial application drone designed to carry out search and rescue operations.
