While a lot more than camera gear goes into making those movies look the way they do, the fact that professional filmmakers are using cameras that many of us keep in our pockets is a pretty encouraging sign when it comes to what we should be able to produce.
I wanted to test out just what you can do to improve your phone’s photo- and video-taking abilities, so I tried out a few different things: some add-on lenses, a microphone, and a stabilizer. You can see the results in the video above.
Moment’s made a name for itself creating lenses for smartphones (which we just published a review of today, by the way), but the company is now venturing into a new segment: filmmaking. This campaign is being kickstarted (pun not intended) by a $ 149 anamorphic lens, and the results look pretty impressive. That’s probably how the Kickstarter already has over $ 370,000 (and climbing) in funding on a $ 50,000 goal.
Three other products were unveiled alongside this lens by Moment today: an iPhone X Battery Photo Case, a gimbal counterweight, and a filter mount.
Some owners of Apple’s chief competition against the iPhone X — the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ — are encountering problems with the responsiveness of touchscreens, excessive lens flare, and inaccurate data use tracking according to user complaints on assorted forums. AppleInsider – Frontpage News

Google has announced that its previously Android-only Google Lens feature is now rolling out to iOS users who have the Google Photos app installed.
First unveiled last year at the Google I/O 2017 conference, Google Lens uses the company’s image recognition and machine learning algorithms to identify the subjects of photos and videos and present additional helpful actions and information to the user.
For example, if you take a picture of a business card, Google Lens will offer to save the phone number or address to one of your contacts. Similarly, taking a photo of a book, landmark, building, painting, plant or animal can throw up an option to view more details about the picture’s subject.
A few things to note: Currently Google Lens only works if your device’s language is set to English, and you’re running the latest version (3.15) of Google Photos. You can check what version you’re running in the app’s settings – tap the cog icon and select “About Google Photos” in the menu. Also note that your Google Lens activity is saved to your Google Account if you have Web & App Activity turned on.
Starting today and rolling out over the next week, those of you on iOS can try the preview of Google Lens to quickly take action from a photo or discover more about the world around you. Make sure you have the latest version (3.15) of the app.https://t.co/Ni6MwEh1bupic.twitter.com/UyIkwAP3i9
If you still don’t see the Google Lens icon when viewing individual photos or videos, it’s likely the feature hasn’t reached your region yet. Google says the update is being released in batches and all devices should receive it soon.
Just like many Google services before it, the Lens visual search platform has been slowly, but surely creeping out of exclusivity status and towards global availability. After first appearing on Google’s own Pixel devices, the software has since seen an Android-wide release. Now, as promised, iOS users are getting the feature as well.

Google is officially rolling out its Lens feature to Apple iOS devices over the next few weeks. Lens is an on-demand object recognition tool, accessible through the Google Photos app. When users take a photo of a book or painting, for example, Lens recognizes it and spits out information telling you more details about the object.
Lens works on photos of business cards, books, landmarks and buildings, paintings in a museum, plants or animals, and flyers and event billboards. When you use Lens on a photo that has phone numbers or an address, you can automatically save this information as a contact on your phone, while events will be added to your calendar.

The image-identification technology in Google Photos is now in the iOS version of this software. Google Lens can find objects and text in pictures and then provide more information. For example, by examining a photo of a business card, the artificial intelligence can pull out all the contact information. Google made the announcement a short […]
