Samsung's Gear 360 from last year was a pretty neat little camera. Like many similar products, it recorded 360-degree video with two fish-eye lenses. But it had a few faults - it only officially worked with Galaxy phones, and it was fairly expensive at $350. Alongside the Galaxy S8, Samsung revealed a new model of the Gear 360.

Google is rolling out an update to its Camera app for Nexus and Pixel devices. The latest version isn't sporting any major new improvements, but it's not without a few refinements.

Kodak Ektra camera phone now on sale in Europe for €499

Despite being a colossus in the history of photography, Kodak hasn't made a lot of waves in the last few years. With smartphones gobbling up the market for point-and-shoot cameras, and DSLR and mirrorless cameras occupying the high end, the venerable company is being squeezed from both sides. Kodak hopes that a unique smartphone design, bearing the name of one of its most famous film cameras and packing a huge focus on photography, will save it from obscurity. The Ektra is scheduled to go on sale today in Europe for €499 (about $525 at today's exchange rate).

Deep dive: A closer look at the Google Pixel's camera

The Pixel phones have been out for several weeks now, and a lot has been said about the camera. I will try to comment on some of the things that I’ve felt have been a bit overlooked, in a deeper dive into the Google Camera 4.2 on the Pixel XL. Most of the issues, if not all, should also apply to the smaller Pixel phone.

A note on pixel size, sensor size, and aperture

Starting with last year’s Nexus phones, Google has been advertising “bigger pixels” in their camera sensors, frequently pointing out their 1.55µm size in marketing materials. Relatively speaking, they’re larger than the ones on most other phones and should lead to lower noise, at least according to common belief.
