So Zeiss, makers of some of the finest camera glass out there, is finally making high-quality external lenses for the iPhone 6s including a telephoto, a wide-angle, and a zoomable macro…
Carl Zeiss just announced VR One, a virtual reality headset for use with a smartphone. It's similar to the Gear VR by Samsung and Oculus, except at $100, it's cheaper.
Sony's trio of full-frame mirrorless cameras, the a7, a7r, and a7s, are wonderfully capable machines. Unfortunately there just aren't that many native lenses to choose from. Today, a new super-wide zoom enters the fold that will hopefully make these slick bodies more appealing, with some primes on the way.
Sony's A7 line of full-frame mirrorless cameras are friggin' awesome, but there haven't been many native lens options, especially in the realm of fast prime lenses. That's slowly changing, and it's starting with Zeiss.
Sigma has been the darling of the lens world recently, producing high-performance products at reasonable prices. Its latest is the 50mm f/1.4 Art series lens, a long awaited addition to their line that we recently had the pleasure of trying out. You're not going to find much more lens for the price.
Zeiss is expanding its lineup of APS-C lenses for Sony E-mount and Fuji X-mount with a new Touit 50mm f/2.8 macro lens.
If you are intrigued by the Nokia Lumia 1020's wild camera, you no doubt wonder what lies underneath the circular 41-megapixel bulge. Zeiss, the maker of the Lumia 1020's lens, did us all the kindness of slicing the teeny camera right down the middle so we could all see inside!
There are two terms in digital photography that signify two very different kinds of cameras. The terms are compact, and full-frame. The former defines those cheap, pocketable point-and-shoots, while the latter is a feature only found on the most professional DSLRs. With the RX1, Sony fused these two polar opposites in…
Old and busted: Grainger Sky Theater at Chicago's Adler Planetaruim's 1970s Zeiss relic analog star projector. New hotness: $14 million system making it the world's highest resolution digital theater. Get ready to trip balls at your next planetarium show.
Nokia took a striking piece of unibody hardware, coupled it with a 3.9-inch curved glass touchscreen display, removed all the buttons, and topped it with an 8-megapixel Carl Zeiss camera and NFC. Incredible. It's called the N9. But!
During the last Presidential debate, John McCain delivered this line about his opponent with withering contempt:

Despite the stigma, I've always wanted a pair of video goggles. I never did mind the nerd factor accompanying any piece of gear, at least not after admiring sci fi heroes like Cyclops of the X-men and Geordi from ST:TNG. But they've never been cheap or high-res enough until now. The Zeiss Cinemizer ($400) and the Myvu…
We've seen some big lenses before, but this Zeiss Apo Sonnar T* 1700mm F4 lens is so big you can't even carry it around in a wheelbarrow. In fact, it weighs 564 pounds, so you'd better have a team of weightlifters to help you point the thing.
