Moment's brand new Fisheye 14mm lens is fun, versatile, and 25% off at launch

Last year, Moment revisited its Tele 60mm lens to redesign it with modern smartphones in mind. The outcome was a new Tele 58mm that delivers a sharper image and eliminates the vignetting that was so common with the wider lenses of most new smartphones. Moment is back at it again this year, but this time it's the Superfish lens going under the microscope. There's now a new Fisheye 14mm with similarly big improvements over the original, and we got to spend a little time to test out what the new glass can do.

Google Camera gains document scanning and more, Photos picks up astrophotography filter

Google Camera 7.2 is proving to be an extremely substantial update to the software. We've previously covered the new UI, the addition of astrophotography, and social sharing options. As it turns out, this version of Camera also integrates Google Lens more deeply into the viewfinder, which allows you to scan documents, translate foreign languages, and copy text. Related to these capabilities, Google Photos has added a filter specifically for astrophotography images.

(Update: Fixed) The Pixel 4's camera has serious white balance problems (gallery)

Google has been pouring a lot of effort into nailing down photo processing on its flagships since it started building its own phones. In the Pixel 4 and 4 XL, the company may have added too many intelligent camera features for their own good. It introduced a new machine-learning-based white balance algorithm that is supposed to produce more natural-looking images under harsh lighting conditions, but as it turns out, some edge cases can end up looking worse instead.

Moment Pixel 4 cases up for pre-order, all lenses up to 20% off through Oct 31st

Most people don't bother to carry a dedicated camera with them anymore, not since smartphones basically obliterated the market for point-and-shoot cameras. With the launch of the Pixel 4, we're even seeing more impressive zooming capabilities and shooting modes that deserve all of the attention they're getting. However, if you're missing the ultra wide lens or want to push beyond the 8x zoom, or if you have another phone that still has room to improve, it might be time to slip on a lens to achieve that extra optical breathing room. Moment is running a sale that will net up to 20% off on all of its lenses, and if you ordered a Pixel 4 in either size, now is also a great time to get an order in for a Photo Case to go with it.

If OnePlus phones have an Achilles heel, it's the camera. Although the company has made great strides, it still can't compare with the best of Google or Huawei, and that's still the case when it comes to the new 7T, though there are a couple of improvements and new features worth your consideration.
