Would you look at that? According to PhotoRumors, that chunk of retro beauty is purportedly a full-on snap of Olympus’ new OM-D Micro Four Thirds shooter (from an Amazon Japan listing that’s since been pulled) affixed with its optional battery grip (adding what appears to be a secondary shutter button). That, or someone knows exactly what makes us go “Oooh.” The chunky ’70s stylings make us fear we’d abandon our career to go become a war photographer if one of those was placed in our hands. 43Rumors believes the unit will hold a 16.1 megapixel EDR CMOS, beefier [...]
As the Sensation line continues apace, HTC has supersized its popular Android handset with the 4.7-inch screened HTC Sensation XL.
It’s the first handset to be built with the Beats audio enhancements from day one (unlike the Sensation XE where the hardware was enhanced afterwards), and is HTC’s first real chance to prove that its stake in Beats by Dre audio is more than just cash for cred.
So can the HTC Sensation XL delight our ear holes as well as functioning as a high-end smartphone? We went hands on to find out….

At the over £1,000 and sub £2000 price point there are several DSLRs and compact system cameras (CSCs) that have taken movie capture to a high-spec level. Some offer top-notch settings that promise professional quality and intelligent controls.
When spending upwards of £1,000 there’s a lot to consider: which model produces the best quality footage; which can autofocus with ease (if this is important to your movie making); or how much manual control do you get over exposure?
There’s also a mixture of Four Thirds, APS-C and full-frame sensors available.
We’ve rounded up five [...]
Stephen Elop himself spilled the beans about Nokia’s first WP7 handset, codenamed Sea Ray, when he told a large live audience and some whirring video cameras that he wanted the phone to be kept “super confidential.” Now we have a whole new puddle of legumes lying on what sounds like a Chinese factory floor, courtesy of the authentic-looking video above. The clip reveals the N9-like device removed from what appears to be a stealth case, followed by a speedy boot-up into the Windows Phone OS. We’re also treated to a quick look at the camera in action — triggered by a [...]
Once a passing gimmick, 3D seems to be here to stay. HTC is heralding the move from the cinema screen to the handheld with the launch of the HTC Evo 3D, sacrificing svelte light-footedness for a dual-camera wielding chunk of a handset.
HTC’s first 3D phone is also its first Evo-branded handset to reach the UK’s fair shores; we got up close and personal to see if the extra dimension is worth all the fuss.
It’s certainly not the lightest smartphone on the block; all that extra heft required for the dual-cameras and 3D-capable screens means a bit of extra weight. The Evo [...]
