How to use the new Camera app features in iOS 14

Apple’s changes and updates to the Camera app in iOS 14 are mostly quite small, but there are so many of them.

It’s not true that there are more updates to the Camera app than there are in the rest of iOS 14, but it may feel like it. Few people are going to use all of the new features, but everyone is going to find that taking photographs is quicker and gets better results.

That’s because some of the updates are to do with actually speeding up the process, with physically making the iPhone work faster. Others also make the job quicker, though, by being easier to do, or just simpler to find.

Some of these updates are merely cosmetic, yet the change makes them more discoverable. The best camera is the one you have with you, but the best camera features are the ones you can find.

Zeiss ZX1 Android camera shows up online with $6,000 price tag

Zeiss ZX1 Camera
  • Zeiss’ ZX1 Android camera is now available on pre-order.
  • It was first announced in 2018.
  • The digital camera runs a custom version of Android.

We’ve seen Android phones cough up multiple camera systems for years now. What we haven’t seen in a while is a camera that runs Android. It’s not a new concept. Light’s 16-lens L16 camera was perhaps the last major Android-based camera to launch in 2017. We’ve also seen other companies experiment with the concept resulting in cameras like the Samsung Galaxy Camera, Galaxy NX, Yongnuo YN450, and Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1. Now, Zeiss is launching one that costs a whopping $6,000.

The Zeiss ZX1 full-frame camera was first announced back in 2018 but is only now going on pre-order. It was spotted on B&H Photo by folks over at DP Review.

The compact camera is Zeiss’ first entry into the digital camera space and runs a

Putting full-frame sensors into smaller and smaller compact bodies is all the rage nowadays. Nikon did it with the Z5, Panasonic did it with the S5, and just last month Sony joined the crowd with the new A7C. After announcing its compact full-frame camera more than two years ago, Zeiss’ $6,000 ZX1 has finally become available for preorder online this week. Yes, you read that correctly: $6,000.

The ZX1 was originally billed as Zeiss’ first digital camera. Featuring a 37.4-MP full-frame sensor, Zeiss has managed to cram a lot pixels into a relatively sleek frame that measures just 2.6 inches thick (not including its lens) and weighs 1.76 pounds (body and battery). Strangely, unlike a lot of full-frame cameras (especially ones this expensive), the ZX1 also has a fixed 35mm f/2 lens. So while the ZX1 might

The camera that taught me how to see the world

Yashica D camera

The Yashica-D twin-lens reflex camera.

Jon Skillings/CNET

When I was a kid and it came time for family snapshots, my dad was always heads-down. Chin to chest, eyes locked onto a camera grasped in both hands at waist height. Left hand to steady, right hand to work the controls.

This was no point-and-shoot. Not like the plastic Kodak Instamatic 44 I would receive as a 12th birthday present, or the double-lensed, autofocusing iPhone 11 I carry now. It was a solid, serious, fascinating machine: a Yashica-D twin-lens reflex.

And it was ungainly as hell. The way the viewfinder reversed the image left to right. The buttons and knobs. The heft. That posture.

Think of it as a squat, upside-down periscope.

That was a long time ago now. My dad stopped using that camera by
