Samsung Galaxy Note20 (Exynos) Camera review: Reliable and solid

Launched in August 2020, the Galaxy Note20 is Samsung’s less expensive and slightly smaller version of their flagship business/consumer-oriented smartphone. It features the same high-end Exynos 990 chipset as the more expensive Note20 Ultra model, runs Google’s Android 10 operating with 8GB RAM, and offers 256 GB of non-expandable internal memory. The 6.7-inch AMOLED Plus display on the Note20 is only slightly smaller than the 6.9-inch Ultra version, too, although the latter does boast a higher-resolution display and a faster refresh rate.

Both devices come with three cameras, including standard-wide, ultra-wide and telephoto modules, but camera specifications vary between the two models. The standard-wide on the Note20 features a 12MP 1/1.76-inch sensor, linked to a 26 mm-equivalent f/1.8-aperture lens with dual pixel phase-detection autofocus (PDAF) and optical image stabilization. That’s a significantly different configuration compared to the 108 MP Quad Bayer sensor Samsung has implemented on the Note20 Ultra.

Between 300 and 400 cities in the U.S. employ traffic camera programs, according to Montana State University assistant professor Justin Gallagher. Even so, there has long been debate over whether the programs are effective at maximizing public safety and reducing traffic accidents.

Gallagher, a faculty member in MSU’s Department of Agricultural Economics and Economics in the College of Agriculture and the College of Letters and Science, wondered if he could narrow down an answer to that question. In a paper published in the American Economic Journal of Economic Policy, Gallagher and University of Arizona researcher Paul Fischer examine the concept of offsetting risks using more than a decade’s worth of data from one of the country’s largest red-light camera programs in Houston, Texas.

“In debates about this issue, one side argues that these cameras improve safety, while the other side is often concerned with having computers

Moto E7 announced with an incredibly low price and big camera promises

Following a recent leak, the Moto E7 has now been announced, and it costs just £99 (roughly $130 / AU$180). That makes it one of the cheapest smartphones there is, yet in the announcement Motorola has promised big things from the camera.

It’s a dual-lens one, with a 48MP f/1.7 primary lens and a 2MP f/2.4 macro one, and Motorola claims you can expect “incredible image quality for its low price point”, along with a Night Vision mode that apparently offers bright and sharp images in the dark. That’s in part thanks to Quad Pixel technology, which allows the camera to take 12MP shots with 4x the light sensitivity.

The Moto E7 also has a 5MP selfie camera in a notch, a 6.5-inch 720 x 1600 screen with a 20:9 aspect ratio, a 4,000mAh battery which apparently offers 36 hours of life, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and a dedicated Google

iPhone 12 Pro Max teardown reveals a truly huge main camera

It’s no secret that Apple’s iPhone 12 Pro Max boasts a larger main camera, but it’s now clear just how enormous that sensor really is. iFixit has posted a teardown of the iPhone 12 Pro Max that illustrates the camera size in vivid detail. While the cam itself is visibly larger, it’s the sensor-shift stabilization that puts it over the top — the full unit makes the regular 12 Pro’s main shooter look dainty by comparison. Apple might have needed to make “compromises” to stuff that camera into the smaller phone, iFixit said.

Many other parts are larger, too. It’s not surprising that the battery is the largest for any current iPhone at 14.13Wh (albeit smaller than the 15.04Wh from the 11 Pro Max). However, the speaker and Taptic Engine are also huge, at least compared to the compact parts inside

Fox News Segment Goes South When Camera Fell A Guest’s Crotch

The White House’s vaccine czar, Dr. Marc Siegel, had an embarrassing moment on Monday when his camera fell into his crotch during a Fox News segment. The blooper happened while Siegel was fielding a question about Regeneron from anchor Julie Banderas, only to have the camera give all of Fox News’ viewers a clear shot of the doctor’s pants, which he was fortunately wearing. While Siegel continued to talk as if nothing happened, you can tell by the look on Banderas’ face that she clearly saw what happened. She then tried to assure Siegel that these things happen, and it’s no big deal, which probably would’ve worked had she not quipped, “Nice jeans by the way.”

You can watch the embarrassing moment below, via The Daily Beast’s Justin Baragona.
