Last month, I took the Nikon D810 out on the Sierra High Route — one of the toughest adventures around. It got dirty, wet, and constantly banged around. Here’s how it performed.
The Alienware Alpha sounds awesome. It’s smaller and more powerful than the PS4 and Xbox One. It doubles as an actual Windows PC! But be warned: it’s not as easy to use as a game console, not as foolproof. It’s not nearly the slam dunk I was hoping it would be.
Samsung might be copying a few design elements here and there from Apple, but it appears to beat out the iPhone in at least one category. This photo, originally leaked by @culeaks, claims to show the rumored Alpha's slimness advantage over an iPhone 5S.
If you thought that hitting "Update All" on the Play Store meant you have the most recent version of an Android app, you'd be wrong. There are plenty of ways to get faster rollouts or even experimental builds for the adventurous.
Facebook has announced a new alpha program for its Android app, so super-early adopters can excitedly try out new features. Be warned, though: even Facebook engineer Christian Legnitto says it's "not for the faint of heart."
We're big fans of Sony's line of mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras. Sony Europe just announced NEX-3N, the latest update to the starter NEX camera. We loved last year's NEX-F3, and, really, we should be elated that Sony has made it considerably smaller and lighter to make it more appealing to entry-level…
Common knowledge dictates that girls dig guys with muscles. However, new research suggests that women gave up on bulging biceps and strong jawlines long ago, in favor of qualities like loyalty and generosity. In other words, the scrawny geek gets the gal.
Even as pro-grade, mirrorless, interchangeable lens cameras threaten to overtake the user-base that once demanded budget DSLRs, not everyone is convinced. Sony has revamped one of its budget DSLR-like cameras for people who actually like having a bigger, more powerful camera in their hands.
Whether or not Sony's PR firm was behind this "leaked" video of the much-anticipated Sony Alpha A77 (and, come on, don't bullshit me), it's still video of the Sony Alpha A77. And it looks rad.
Voila! UPenn's super-sophisticated uber-bike. Five kids. Substantial funding and sponsorship dollars. Free reign to eliminate clunks gears and cables. It's called Alpha.
"Mutliverse" subscribers believe there are other, crazier universes beyond ours that could potentially boast their own unique physics. That's one theory. Another, floated this week, is that the laws of physics in this universe aren't so constant either.
It wasn't just the A55 and A33 cameras that were unleashed by Sony today—the DSLR-A580 and DSLR-A560 models got a look-in too. Both shoot 1080i video at 29.97fps, with the A580 featuring 16.2MP and A560 14.2MP.
Working behind the scenes to produce more mumbo-jumbo jargon, the Translucent Mirror Technology is shorthand for being able to track fast-moving subjects with "extra precision." Two camera models with this tech have been announced today, the SLT-A55V and SLT-A33.
Two entry-level DSLRs from Sony today, both with an eye on your budget. The A390 and A290 both have 14.2MP sensors, with the only major difference being the Quick AF Live View on the former model. UPDATE
How many times have you brought your DSLR up to your eye, and wished there was a better way? Oh sure, you can look through the LCD instead of the viewfinder, but where's the fun in that?
Did those interchangeable lenses linger on the mind last night, and you've woken up this morning with the resolve to snap one up ASAP? Hotfoot it to SonyStyle now, but bear in mind you won't receive it until June. [SonyStyle]
