Samsung has just announced its latest flagship mirror-less camera and Samsung is pulling no punches. The NX1 is the only camera in its class with a 28 mega-pixel sensor and 205 phase detection auto-focusing points – that’s more AF points than the current king of the hill, the Sony a6000 – and a maximum 15 frame per second continuous shooting mode. In short, it’s … Continue reading Samsung’s NX1 is super fast auto-focusing beast!
GIFs, the looping moving images that are all the rage at the moment, aren’t just for silly cat memes. At least not anymore. Last year, Flixel made a big splash by getting a big placement on TV’s America’s Next Top Model and they haven’t looked back since. Flixel has managed to change the way fashion photographers approach stills and video by creating a single-focus application that … Continue reading Noisestash: Flixel Cinemagraph Pro for Mac (Deal of the Day)
It’s been a little over two years since Olympus launched their first micro four-thirds camera aimed at the professional photographer, the OM-D E-M5. The E-M5 helped change the perception of compact system cameras as small enthusiasts cameras, the just announced Olympus OM-D E-M 10 is ready to once again challenge the notion of “bigger is better.” THE E-M10 AT A GLANCE 16MP sensor (the same … Continue reading Confirmed: Olympus Announces the Newest Member of the OM-D Family
“Bridge cameras” have definitely come a long way. High-end point and shoot cameras and “super zoom” cameras no longer come with anemic CCD senors with slow-as-molasses image processors. The new bridge camera can definitely bridge that technological gap between your entry-level P&S or smartphone and an interchangeable lens system; this year has been good to this market segment with the reigning big dog – the … Continue reading Olympus announces the Stylus 1; is this a legitimate Sony RX contender?

The latest report of erroneous directions comes from Alaska’s Fairbanks International Airport. According to the report from the Alaska Dispatch, Apple’s … Continue reading One year later, Apple still headed wrong way with Maps
Back in the day I was all the Genesis. The middle school aged Alberto totally loved the “attitude” heavy marketing from SEGA; it spoke to me but Mario Paint was something that I absolutely had to have. Many years later the internet has come through and showed me what I missed out in my younger days, Daft Punk’s song of the summer, “Get Lucky,” composed … Continue reading Mario Paint Gets Lucky

Make no mistake about it, the Nokia Lumia 1020 is official an is every bit of the camera it is advertised to be. Nokia is definitely betting the farm on the belief that consumers are looking to replace their cameras with their phones and with the Lumia 1020, you’d definitely have something that can make your current cheap-o point-and-shoot seem obsolete. The Lumia 1020 is … Continue reading NOKIA Lumia 1020 First Impressions

It’s been nearly 5 years since the last time we got our crime on a rampage fix that is the Grand Theft Auto series. We’ve been teased with some in-game stills, concept art, theatrical trailers, and now finally, Rockstar gives the goods with a new game play trailer featuring five minutes of driving, shooting, explosions, and uh, yoga. Sure we don’t actually see any … Continue reading Here’s your first look at Grand Theft Auto V (Game-play Trailer)
Over the last few months I’ve found myself completely overwhelmed by the rigors of managing two websites, freelance work, and carving out personal time to deal with the important things. Up until recently I scoffed at the idea of using to-do lists and apps for keeping it all together – possibly out of some misguide pride on my part. After trying to keep it all … Continue reading Noisestash: Three apps that help organize my life
Last night I was elated after hearing Sony announce not just the price of the new Playstation 4 (a paltry $399) but their steadfast commitment to consumers – the PS4 was going to support used games! As I’m likely to do after most great evenings, this morning I awoke a little bleary-eyed, tired, dehydrated, and still excited. Sony had not only watched their main opponent … Continue reading Let’s talk XBOne and PS4 – no one got it right
Today’s very subdued Nintendo video presentation brings to light what we’ve all been thinking: There’s not too much worth looking forward to on the Wii U. Sure Bayonetta 2 now has a estimated release date and hair do, the first cooperative-play Mario 3D game was announced, and yes there’s even an HD version of The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker coming in October of this … Continue reading Nintendo E3 Announcement: The only thing you need to know
Today’s news about the forthcoming Xbox One’s reported limitations on their “license” and how it’ll affect consumers is a bit troubling. The short version of this is that Microsoft has created a system that can potentially kill the trade-and-resell market for video games but has deferred the actual pulling of the proverbial trigger to publishers. It’s a half-ass stance that is not unlike Microsoft’s current business culture … Continue reading Xbox One, Licensing vs. Ownership, and Voting With Your Wallet
