Relonch Camera – Smart Camera for Design Lovers

Plenty of us have big, expensive standalone cameras – and folders full of unfulfilled potential to go along with them. Relonch Camera promises to shift this entire paradigm by making the camera a service instead of a large purchase. The camera itself is wrapped in a handsome leather case that covers everything but the lens, shutter button, and viewfinder, removing the need/temptation to fiddle with settings. Your shots are uploaded via a built-in SIM card to their servers, where sophisticated algorithms pick your best shots, automatically adjust/develop them, and send them to the app for review. Pick your favorite photo from each day, and they’ll send you a monthly photobook filled with your latest memories. All without the need to go to a camera shop or fire up a filter app.

Hasselblad has announced a new concept camera – the Hasselblad V1D 4116 Concept Camera.

Whilst it is only a concept at present, this superb looking device has already turned heads aplenty and there is a clamour to see this on the shelves sooner rather than later.

PowerVision PowerEgg Camera Drone

Judging by the looks of most drones, building one that looks like an egg seems a little counterintuitive. Yet it’s that exact shape that makes the PowerVision PowerEgg Camera Drone different. Thanks to the design, each of its four arms and rotors is able to retract back inside the shell for easy transportation, as are the four legs, which fold upwards so as to not block the view of the gimbal-mounted, 14 megapixel 4K camera. Arrives with a traditional dual-stick controller, as well as the Maestro gesture-based controller that’s ideal for beginner pilots.
