Why The iPhone 12 Pro Can’t Have Apple’s Best Camera

Sometimes, the best smartphone features are reserved almost inexplicably, for the largest models. However, a new report reveals one possible reason why the regular iPhone 12 Pro misses out on Apple’s best camera.

Pro Max but, unfortunately for those with smaller hands, only the larger model gets Apple’s best camera hardware. Now, a recent teardown by iFixit reveals one very good reason behind this decision. It simply won’t fit.

On paper, the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max main cameras look almost the same. Both offer 12-megapixel sensors paired with  f/1.6 lenses but, as iFixit’s recent teardown shows, Apple has given the Pro Max model an improved version with a 47 percent larger sensor as well as Apple’s latest

Microsoft ‘Productivity Score’ monitors employees email, camera usage

  • Microsoft this month launched an analytics tool for employers called “Productivity Score.”
  • The tool collects detailed data about how employees are using Microsoft’s tools, including how much they use email and whether they turn their camera on during meetings.
  • Privacy experts have voiced concerns that the Microsoft tool is a serious invasion of privacy, as employers are able to view employees’ activity individually.
  • Data privacy researcher Wolfie Christl said it “turns Microsoft 365 into an full-fledged workplace surveillance tool.”
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

Microsoft has a new tool that lets companies break down how much time employees are spending on work tools like email, Microsoft Teams, and Word — and privacy experts say it amounts to “workplace surveillance.”

The tool, called Productivity Score, was first announced by the company in October and launched on November 17. It allows employers to gather granular data about how their employees

Schertz releases officers’ body, dash camera footage of Black teen’s arrest

Schertz officials released new police camera footage Wednesday that shows what happened before and after the arrest of a Black teen seen in a viral video that prompted accusations of excessive force.

Officials said they had wanted to release the footage of 18-year-old Zekee Rayford’s arrest earlier in the name of transparency. They were only able to release the videos Wednesday after receiving authorization from the Guadalupe County District Attorney’s Office.

On Nov. 2, Rayford allegedly ran a red light at about 11:45 p.m. on Schertz Parkway and did not pull over when signaled by Schertz police officers Frank Chavarria and Megan Fennesy, according to a police report.

Instead, Rayford drove to his home in the 1000 block of Keanna Place, where a security camera there provided the first video of his arrest. It has since been shared on social media and drew criticism from family, civil rights activists, and

Fujifilm announced the launch of its updated GFX100 large format mirrorless digital camera on Wednesday, which now comes equipped with infrared image-making capabilities that could be used in forensic, scientific, and cultural preservation capacities.

Through its new Pixel Shift Multi-Shot function, the GFX100 IR can now be used to “reveal intricate details within a subject or scene that can only normally be seen through the infrared spectrum.”

The IR comes equipped with filters in front of the camera lens that allow its users to make pictures at a variety of different light wavelengths (with the option of still using the camera normally to take pictures of colors along the visible spectrum).

The added features will be “invaluable for cultural research,” Fujifilm said in a statement, because “reviewing images of a subject in infrared could ultimately lead to potentially unlocking untold secrets from

Software update for Fujifilm’s GFX100 turns it into a 400 MP camera

With its 102-megapixel sensor, Fujifilm’s $10,000 GFX100 can already capture incredibly dense images that bring out tiny details in a subject. But with the help of new firmware and a technique called pixel shift multi-shot, the GFX100 can now capture 400-megapixel images.

a close up of a camera

As PetaPixel explains, to accomplish the feat the camera uses a combination of its 102-megapixel sensor and in-body stabilization. The latter component will move the sensor in tiny, 0.5-pixel increments while it captures 16 separate RAW images. Fuji’s new Pixel Shift Combiner software then stitches together those RAW files into a single 400-megapixel digital negative (DNG) images that apps like Capture One can edit.

As you might have guessed, a 400-megapixel image is substantially bigger than one of its 100-megapixel counterparts, with the former taking up as much as 200 megabytes when compressed into a JPEG file. The denser image is also more cumbersome

Lights, camera, sell: Retailers want you to watch and shop

NEW YORK — When Jenna Powell gets in front of a camera, she can sell $10,000 worth of sparkly dresses and tie-dye hoodies in 40 minutes.

Powell, whose three Jennaration shops in Alabama were closed at the start of the pandemic, has put all her focus on selling through live videos, broadcasting live several times a week to 400 people who watch on Facebook or her store’s app. She puts on clothes from her shop, spins for the camera and tries to get viewers to buy.

“This top is a deal for $22!,” Powell says in a recent video about a leopard print sweater she’s wearing. “It’s just very, very well made, y’all!”

Livestream selling, already popular in China, is taking off in the U.S., ushering in a new way for Americans to shop online. Instead of searching for what they want, they pick up their phones, sit back, and

The Ulanzi ST-09 Turns the Apple Watch Into a Camera Viewfinder

If you’re snapping a quick selfie for social media, the lower quality camera on the front of your smartphone is usually just fine. But what if you want to use the higher quality lenses and camera on the back to film yourself? It means you can’t see the screen and no longer have a live preview of yourself for framing. The solution? A simple clamp attachment for iPhones that turns the Apple Watch into a tiny viewfinder.

At first, the $20 Ulanzi ST-09 Phone Tripod Mount for Apple Watch seems like a foolish use for the $200+ smartwatch strapped to your wrist. But as you think about it more, you realize the mount solves a problem that many amateur vloggers who rely on their smartphones for all of their production needs run into: using the back camera to film yourself is all but impossible (unless you’re standing in front of

PlayStation 5 heat test: Using a thermal camera to find out how hot the PS5 gets

Sony’s PlayStation 5 is packed with powerful components to make your next-gen games look better than ever. That kind of power tends to generate a lot of heat, however, so I wanted to see just how hot the console gets in use. 

I pointed the CAT S62 Pro phone at it, which has a built-in thermal imaging sensor made by industry expert Flir Systems. I previously used the same phone to test the heat-generating capabilities of the new Xbox Series X, which peaked at around 121.9 degrees Fahrenheit (49.9 degrees Celsius) while playing Gears 5. 


Andrew Hoyle/CNET

When the console was idling on the home screen I clocked a temperature of 66.7 F (19.3 C), roughly in line with the Xbox’s 68.7 F (20.4 C). I started by firing up Astro’s Playroom, the game Sony preinstalled to show off some of the new console and controller features. It hit
