Sony kickstarted a rather interesting trend with its Xperia XZ Premium back in 2017, delivering a hitherto unprecedented 960 frames per second (fps) slow-motion mode. This allows users to capture scenes and movement four times slower than your standard 240fps mode. This super slow-mo option is far from perfect though, as it requires plenty of good light and captures less than a second of motion. That hasn’t stopped plenty of companies from adding it to their phones, including Samsung, Huawei, Xiaomi and Realme. Not all 960fps modes are created equal though, so we attempt to figure out which devices offer the real deal and which ones don’t. The difference between real and faux 960fps The Samsung ISOCELL Fast 2L3 is one of a few sensors with 960fps support. Samsung A native 960fps slow motion mode requires hardware to go with it, namely a camera sensor with embedded DRAM. By attaching super-fast memory to the camera sensor, the phone is able to save all the frames generated … [Read more...] about Who actually has real 960fps super slow-motion recording?

Some purposes require high-resolution images. Others require high-density ones. How can you tell the difference and provide what’s needed? Resolution and image pixel density are two separate concepts often blurred into the single term “resolution.” This makes it difficult to provide what’s needed.Resolution refers effectively to the amount of information in an image, and more concretely to its dimensions measured in pixels. The amount of detail you capture in an image—whether a photo, scan, or graphic—is directly related to its resolution, as to capture ever more detail, you need ever more pixels. You might need quite a lot of pixels to provide a zoomable image of something with a lot of detail, like a machine, or to print a large-format photograph.The density of an image refers to how that resolution is mapped onto something you’re viewing, and it’s measured in pixels per inch (ppi), even though you’ll likely see it referred to as … [Read more...] about How to set a higher dpi without changing an image’s resolution
When the 10-year challenge went viral earlier this year, everyone who wanted to brag about how hot they used to be had the same idea for where to find those nostalgic photos: legacy photo hosting site Photobucket, which saw a massive uptick in traffic that week. “We found that people were like, ‘Where do I find that picture of myself 10 years ago? It’s probably on Photobucket,’” its CEO Ted Leonard tells me. The company is trying to make a comeback as more than just a site for forgotten photos, though usage has dramatically declined over the years, and it faces significantly more competition than when it first launched in 2003. Once accounting for 2 percent of US internet traffic by hosting photos for sites like eBay and Myspace, Photobucket is now somewhere in the range of the 1,500th most-visited website in the US, according to Alexa rankings. But under new management, the company is currently in the middle of an apology tour, trying to regain the … [Read more...] about Photobucket still has your photos, and it wants you to come back
