Triggertrap: nine ways to activate your DSLR with an iOS device, choose one

Monday, April 30th, 2012

triggertrap-remote-activated-dslr-iOS-app

When we first heard about the Kickstarter-funded Triggertrap, it was a nice but nichey lab instrument of a device that could fire your DSLR with diverse stimuli, like lights or ringing phones. It wasn’t the first photo-tripping idea we’d seen, but at least it could be had for a fair sum ($75.00) and be used out of the box. But now, by connecting that tech to an app and charging $19.98 for both the software and hardware, Triggertrap might open up remote snapping to a lot more folks.

Running off any iPhone, iPad or iPod using iOS 5, the app uses a dongle which can be connected by cable or infrared to most DSLRs or advanced compacts. From there, you’ll be able to use all of your iDevice’s sensors as triggers, from motion through to facial recognition and even GPS. The app doesn’t just fire the shutter, either — it also gives you control over the focus and flash. And if you don’t have a separate camera, the iPhone’s built-in cam can be used instead — which would save you from buying the $9.99 dongle, if you have the necessary accoutrements. So if you’ve been wondering how to get those hard-to-shoot images, or have more nefarious ideas, check the videos after the break.

Leaked Verizon document details Android updates

Saturday, April 28th, 2012

Verizon Android update schedule leaked

A Reddit user by the name of DroidTosser claims to have the inside scoop on Verizon’s Android update schedule, and has posted the images to back their story up. According the photos, the HTC Rezound is slated receive an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on May 9th, followed by the DROID RAZR and RAZR MAXX on May 21st. Verizon’s first Honeycomb tablet, the Motorola XOOM is currently awaiting “technical approval” and will be updated directly by Google. The DROID Bionic, HTC Thunderbolt, LG Revolution, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, and Sony Xperia Play are all in testing, however the updates aren’t labeled as Ice Cream Sandwich builds and may just refer to bug fixes. Additional images can be found after the break.

Is this RIM’s BlackBerry 10 development device?

Saturday, April 28th, 2012

Image

You know the drill — grab yourself a spoonful of Morton’s and get ready for another supposed leak of a gadget. This time around, you’re looking at what’s claimed as being of Research In Motion’s BlackBerry 10 “Development Alpha” devices that will be handed out during next week’s BlackBerry Jam — just like the company promised a month ago. Images of the device first surfaced over at Crackberry’s forums and, as the site points out, the touchscreen candy bar seems to share its design DNA with the PlayBook. Keeping in mind that it’s likely to remain a testing device for devs, don’t bank on it ever hitting store shelves. That said, we’re now curious how pivotal a roll RIM’s famous tactile keyboards will play on its next-generation phones — if any. Head over to the sources links below if you’d like to catch more photos from Mr. Blurrycam and extra information in the meantime.

Is this the Samsung Galaxy S3?

Friday, April 27th, 2012
Samsung Galaxy S III photo

We received a photo of what looks like it could be Samsung’s upcoming flagship handset, the Samsung Galaxy S3. Although it isn’t confirmed at this point, this is one of the most compelling images we have seen so far. We’ll know in a couple days if this is the real deal but compared to all the decoys we’ve seen, we definitely hope the flagship smartphone Samsung unveils next week ends up looking like this instead. This phone also matches up exactly with what we have reported, something many people have continued to miss — the Galaxy S3 will have a physical button in the center beneath the display.

UPDATE: Looks like this image was sent to a few different sites around 3:00 a.m. this morning…

Motorola RAZR HD running ICS spotted in the wild, 720p display in tow

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

Image

Last week, a Motorola engineer’s Picasa album all but confirmed the existence of the Motorola Droid RAZR HD. And while we can’t say his job has a future, it looks like this handset does. The latest leak includes some newly discovered blurry cam photos from China showing Motorola model MT887 running ICS. This matches the EXIF data posted by that errant engineer, which listed the RAZR HD’s build as 4.0.3. According to the latest images, the RAZR HD sports a 4.3-inch display — with an upgraded resolution of 720p — though the other specs appear to match the current batch of RAZRs. As Android Community points out, that relatively bulky body could mean there’s a 3,300mAH battery inside. That’s all well and good — unless Motorola also has a Droid HD RAZR Maxx set to launch a month after this guy. Then again, who would be so cruel as to pit your hopes for a higher-res RAZR against your dreams of an even longer-lasting smartphone?

Microsoft applies for low-powered interactive second display system patent

Microsoft applies for low-powered interactive second display system

Oh patent applications… where creative ideas dance shoulder to shoulder with ill-conceived folly. Which do we have here today? We’re not sure. What we are sure of, however, is that someone at Microsoft has applied for a patent that describes a device with two screens. Not that old chestnut, but the second screen being of lower-power, like e-ink, and displaying different information based on the state of the first one (i.e. is it against your face or not.) The not-to-be-trusted images illustrate the second screen covering the back of a device and displaying a clock, or other such user specified info. The app does state that it would continue to display info, even if the device was in a sleep mode, and describes a non-flat contour. If you were to read into it, it might sound like rear e-ink phone housing, but if this ever comes to pass, it’ll likely be with a little bit of dressing down, so don’t get too excited.

Google’s Nexus Tablet possibly revealed in leaked images

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

It is widely believed that Google will enter the tablet market in 2012 with a self-branded 7-inch Android tablet. Earlier rumors indicated that the Internet giant had teamed up with ASUS and a Google-branded tablet is reportedly a “done deal.” Pocketnow on Tuesday published what it believes to be a press image of Google’s Nexus tablet, although the blog received no other details. The image reveals a very familiar design with a full-sized SD slot, a microUSB connector and a micro HDMI port. The icons on the display reveal that the render was clearly done before Google’s massive Play rebranding, so things may have changed slightly since the images were made. It should also be noted that the company’s previous “Nexus” devices offered no expandable storage. Google’s tablet is expected to enter production this month and ship around June. The slate could be unveiled at Google’s annual I/O conference on June 27th if earlier rumors pan out.

Instagram for Android now available in the Google Play store

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

One of the most popular photography applications ever to hit Apple’s iOS platform is now available for Android. Instagram allows users to capture photos and edit them using a number of filters that give images a unique retro look. Pictures can then be shared with other Instagram users, and also shared on Twitter, Facebook or via email. Filters can be applied to images imported from a handset’s camera roll as well, and the app supports devices running Android 2.2 or later. Instagram announced during the annual South by Southwest conference that its Android app would be better than Instagram for the iPhone in a number of ways, and now Android users can find out exactly how the new build stacks up. Instagram is available immediately for free in the Google Play store.

How would you change the Nook Tablet?

Sunday, March 18th, 2012
It’s hard not to make a series of reductive comparisons between the Nook Tablet and the Kindle Fire. After all, it’s the conflict between Barnes & Noble and Amazon that frames these two 7-inch tablet / e-reader hybrids. This one is $50 more expensive, but is technically more impressive: you get more expandability, it’s faster and the screen is better for images and video. Statistically, at least three out of every ten e-book readers purchased were Nooks, so plenty of you out there use ‘em. What we want to know, is what are they like to use on a daily basis? What little gripes did we not pick up during our week-long review and, if William Lynch was reading what you had to say, what would you change?
