Canon builds 110 million lenses, proves how much we all love taking pictures

You can’t do much on a camera without a lens, and that glass — curved to be wide or built long to get you close — helps us see much more than our basic set of eyes. Canon knows this well, and this week has announced it has hit 110 million EF lenses.

GoPro shrinks down for a truly compact action camera

Review: Leica Q (Typ 116)

Go Pro gets some friendly competition from ShotBox

Leica builds a full-frame camera for everyday life in the Q

People who love cameras and the art of photography are likely more than familiar with the “Leica” brand and the inherent cost of owning one, but a new advanced compact could find that middle ground and still keep the quality in just as high regard.

Sony’s soups up compacts for slow-motion, readies 4K capture

Ultra HD movies aren’t set to arrive on 4K ready Blu-ray until next year, but you can always be your own Ridley Scott and make your own, and Sony hopes to help with two compacts that’ll make that a possibility, with both featuring support for slow…motion… video.
