The Samsung NX1 ships next week! Have you reserved your place in line?

    We can hardly control our excitement -- one of the most eagerly-anticipated cameras of the year is finally about to arrive! Launched at the Photokina tradeshow last September, the Samsung NX1 mirrorless is the company's first truly pro-grade camera, and sports some pretty spectacular features. We're talking a solid weather-sealed magnesium-alloy body, a light-loving backside-illuminated APS-C image sensor with high 28.2-megapixel resolution, 205-point on-chip phase detection autofocus, astounding 15 frames-per-second burst...

As of a year ago, plans for GoPro compatibility had been temporarily shelved due to connectivity issues. Those issues, it seems, have been resolved and the GoPro mount -- compatible with the Hero3, Hero3+ and Hero4 models -- is expected to begin shipping within two weeks. So what can...

Eye-Fi opens cloud service up to smartphone users

    Wi-Fi enabled flash card maker Eye-Fi packs some pretty impressive technology into the confines of the humble SD card, but its not just its tech that's feeling the squeeze these days.

What's in a File Name?
