The OnePlus 8T comes with a slew of great features including 5G, superfast charging and a lovely display. But it’s the cameras on the back that I’m most interested in, so I was excited to get the phone in my hand and take it on a walk through the orange leaves of Edinburgh in the fall. 

The 8T has four cameras: a 48-megapixel main camera, a 16-megapixel super wide angle, a 5-megapixel macro camera for close up shots, and an additional monochrome sensor for black and white photos. TL;DR: It can take great shots with the main and wide camera modes, but the black and white sensor is pointless and macro images don’t look good. Read on for more information and to see my test images.

COVID red zone violations caught on camera in New York City spark concern

MIDWOOD, Brooklyn (WABC) — As officials push to lower the number of COVID-19 cases in New York City’s hot zones, enforcement concerns continue.

There have been several incidents of people blatantly not following the restrictions in those red zones – and there is fear about what this could mean as work continues to curb the infection rate.

Tuesday night in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, a crowd was spotted leaving what appeared to be a large indoor gathering.

Many people were seen on camera not wearing masks.

And on the same day that the mayor praised efforts to suppress the coronavirus, Eyewitness News found hundreds of young children being dismissed from a school.

They were herded onto buses Tuesday afternoon, some wearing masks, some not. All of them were attending Bais Yaacov School on 51st Street.

The building is inside the state’s red zone and should have been closed starting last week.

Canon’s EOS M50 Mark II mirrorless camera is aimed at creators

Canon has unveiled the 24-megapixel EOS M50 Mark II with relatively minor updates to the popular original aimed mostly at creators. The biggest change is an upgraded Dual Pixel autofocus system that now allows for continuous eye-tracking in video, rather than in just some still modes as before. That will make it more practical for interviews or vlogging (albeit in HD only and not 4K) as the camera can keep your subject in focus by itself.

It can also capture vertical video that you can stream on YouTube live using a smartphone connection. And for vloggers, the flip-out display offers a tap-to-record button, along with tap-to-focus and a movie self timer. On the photo side, the EOS M50 II now has an electronic shutter option. Topping off the new options is webcam support with Canon’s EOS utility software.

Other features remain the

Canon PowerShot ZOOM adds a monocular telephoto camera to the portfolio

It might not be an opportune time to be out and about but Canon thinks people will, at one point in time, want to escape the monotony of the new normal and go outdoors. Some might even take to nature and to the night skies for a bit of reprieve. Those are pretty much the situations where Canon’s newest PowerShot ZOOM camera might be of use, helping people get close to the action even while staying far, far away.

Canon’s PowerShot line is designed for ease of use and you probably can’t get any simpler than this. Coming in a form reminiscent of camcorders, the PowerShot ZOOM is a compact monocular camera that does just one thing and that is to take you closer to your subject matter as quickly and as easily as possible.

To that end, the PowerShot ZOOM offers three telephoto lengths of 100mm, 400mm, and 800mm,

The iPhone 12 Pro Max could be Apple’s biggest camera jump in years

Apple has announced its iPhone 12 lineup, and as ever, the phones’ camera systems were the focus of much of the company’s presentation. This year, though, there’s more to differentiate each model than ever before. The iPhone range is getting improvements across the board, but Apple appears to be reserving the biggest advances for its biggest phone. The 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max has some serious hardware improvements that set its camera apart from every other iPhone.

Hardware-wise, there doesn’t appear to be much difference between the iPhone 12, 12 mini, and 12 Pro when compared to the 11 and 11 Pro. All of these phones use the same-sized 12 megapixel sensors for wide, ultrawide, and the Pro model’s telephoto cameras, and the shape and size of the camera bump remains essentially the same.

The public expects to see police body-camera videos. The question is when they should.

Although the police don’t need the attorney general’s permission, they are asking for his office’s advice on whether they should release body cam videos before cases are prosecuted. And, he said, the rules aren’t clear.

So Neronha is seeking an advisory opinion from the state Supreme Court’s ethics advisory panel, because he said he wants to be able to tell police agencies that they can publicly release videos when police officers use force.

“The point of the letter [to the panel] is to give us the ethical guidance we need to turn it over,” he said. “Right now, our advice to police is we cannot advise to turn that over voluntarily, and perhaps not pursuant to [the state public records law] because of the accused.”

The decision will affect the public’s access to those videos.

For one, it would make a difference in a case in Providence, where a veteran

Body-camera footage of George Floyd protests in Florida released

On May 30 and 31, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office arrested dozens of protesters, charging them with unlawful assembly and holding them in jail overnight.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla — Hours of body-worn camera footage was released Tuesday from the first two days of Jacksonville protests following the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

This comes after a summer of public pressure for more transparency from the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, and footage for 14 officer-involved shootings was made public by the State Attorney’s Office over the past few weeks.

On May 30 and 31, the JSO arrested dozens of protesters —  charging them with unlawful assembly and holding them in jail overnight.

Although, there was some violence on the first day, many of those arrested said they were peacefully protesting when they were taken into custody —  and the videos appear to bear that out.

Ultimately, local prosecutors chose not to prosecute

Freight rail boosts region’s economic growth

The unprecedented period of uncertainty we have gone through in recent months makes many of us wonder if anything is truly reliable. However, despite all we have suffered through this year, a select few institutions are continuing to push our economy toward a robust recovery — including our tried-and-true rail system that has continued to keep our supply lines open during one of the most challenging times in our nation’s history.

Freight railroads have been an important part of southwestern Pennsylvania since they were first invented in the 1800s, and two local household names helped build the rail industry that we know today: Andrew Carnegie and George Westinghouse. These two visionaries laid the foundation for our rail system and served as leading innovators in the rail-supply industry. As a result of their efforts, railroads and Pittsburgh helped each other grow.

That history continues today.

Official render reveals the Huawei Mate 40 series’ unique camera array

huawei mate 40 octagonal camera array
  • An official render of a Huawei Mate 40 series phone has surfaced online.
  • The render suggests at least one of the phones in the series will sport an octagonal camera array.
  • It seems the phone will also sport physical volume buttons.

Growing tired of the all-too-common rectangle camera arrays on flagships? The Huawei Mate 40 series may represent something of a break. According to a teaser (via GSMArena) posted to Weibo by Huawei’s head of mobile product, He Gang, at least one of the phones in the range will sport an octagonal camera array.

Judging by the render, the six-sided array will occupy a large portion of the phone’s upper third. It’s a stark departure from previous non-official renders portraying the Mate 40 with a circular camera array. The render doesn’t give us much info on the actual sensor arrangement or how many shooters will be present. Huawei fans

Breaking down Apple’s three new iPhone 12 camera systems

Apple has just announced its iPhone 12 lineup, and as part of today’s announcements, the company introduced a dizzying amount of camera tech scattered amongst the new iPhones. If you’re coming from an iPhone that currently has a single camera, or even a pair, you may find some serious upgrades here.

But first, let’s establish the baseline.

The iPhone SE’s camera.

One camera: iPhone SE (2020) and iPhone XR

The iPhone SE turned heads earlier this year at a $399 price, and the iPhone XR is now $499. Both have a single 12-megapixel f/1.8 “wide” camera, though they’re not quite the same — the XR has a larger sensor, while the iPhone SE appears to be a smaller one similar to 2017’s iPhone 8. Neither has ultrawide or telephoto lenses, nor fancy Deep Fusion techniques; your portrait-mode shots are also limited to what Apple’s machine learning algorithms can guess about
