Panasonic's new 4K camcorder does better in low light

Panasonic will soon introduce a prosumer 4K camcorder with better low-light performance, faster autofocus and a wider viewing angle than its predecessor.

The HC-X1 was introduced on Wednesday at the IFA trade show in Berlin and will be available later this year.

At the top of the new-feature list is a 1-inch image sensor -- a considerable improvement on the 1/2.3-inch sensor in the two-year-old HC-X1000. The larger image sensor allows the camera to collect more light, which means better low-light performance, but at a cost.

The extra data captured by the image sensor still needs to be processed in real time, and that can cause problems with autofocus, especially during fast-moving events like sports, Panasonic said. The answer is a new autofocus system that can analyze the data and still work fast enough for sports.

Lenovo's Yoga Book makes it easy to be creative on the go

I want Lenovo?s innovative new Yoga Book, and here?s why. It?s not because it?s small, thin, and light, making it easy for me to take it anywhere?though that?s a plus. It?s because Lenovo turned the keyboard side into a large, touch-sensitive surface, adding sketchpad superpowers that make it a tool for creativity as much as productivity. The Yoga Book stretches the boundaries of what a computer can do for you.

The Yoga Book is a full-fledged Windows PC with a highly advanced touchscreen keyboard.

Lenovo readies VR-ready Google Daydream devices

Lenovo is joining Google?s fledgling effort to bring virtual reality to the masses with new devices planned for the Daydream hardware and software platform.

Google?s Daydream brings virtual reality to users via mobile devices. Users can fit Daydream-compatible Android smartphones in VR headsets to roam 3D worlds, interact with friends, and view streaming movies.

?We have some Daydream products on the roadmap,? Jeff Meredith, general manager and vice president of Lenovo?s Android and Chrome Computing Business Group, said in an interview.

Meredith didn?t elaborate on details, but the products will likely be a smartphone and a VR headset. Google has strict rules on which smartphones and headsets qualify for Daydream, which is based on Android 7.0.

Lenovo will ditch hard keyboards in planned Chromebook and 2-in-1s

Lenovo's new Yoga Book will be a sleek folding laptop with stunning secrets inside.

Opening up the device reveals a big surprise: It has no hard keyboard. The keyboard area instead has a versatile touch panel that turns into a smartphone-like virtual keyboard, a draw pad, or a digital notepad.

The new touch input panel, which has a back-lit virtual keyboard, is a big deal for Lenovo. It will be featured in a new line of 2-and-1s and laptops and is Lenovo's ambitious attempt to break a decades-old habit of using one-dimensional hard keyboards.

The Yoga Book will be the company's first product with a touch panel replacing a hard keyboard to type, draw, or take notes. Its price will start at US$499, and come with Windows orAndroid. Lenovo hasn't provided a shipment date for the device.

Hands on: The Moto Z Play brings down the cost of modularity

This is what you get when you take the Moto Z Force, swap out the guts for mid-range parts, remove the "ShatterShield" display, and hack a few hundred bucks off the price. It's the Moto Z Play, a phone that looks almost identical to the Force, but hides significant differences. In fact, if you aren't overly concerned about benchmark numbers, the Play may be the better phone, despite its lower price.

Almost a Moto Z Force, at a glance

The Moto Z Play and Z Force look almost identical. They're almost exactly the same size, with the same flat front and back, and round camera module protruding from the chassis. Obviously, the design uniformity helps maintain compatibility with the same Moto Mods that you can use on the other Moto Z phones. The Moto Z Play even has the same tiny-but-fast-and-accurate fingerprint sensor below the display.

Hands-on: The Hasselblad True Zoom adds 10x optical zoom to your Moto Z

As good as smartphone cameras have become, they still can?t compete with most traditional standalone cameras. There?s just no substitute for a larger sensor, and of course, true optical zoom.

But now Motorola is addressing some of its phones? photography deficits with its Hasselblad-branded Moto Mod. If you?ve got a version of the Moto Z smartphone (and that includes the Moto Z, Moto Z Force and Moto Z Play), you can slap this puppy on the back and get a more camera-like experience. The True Zoom Moto Mod offers a bit of a camera grip, a real shutter button, and true 10x optical zoom. But it also costs $249, similar to a lot of dedicated point-and-shoot cameras.

Windows 10's new beta lets computers download updates from other PCs

Microsoft is trying to make it faster for people to download Windows updates by using the vast network of PCs around the world to deliver them.

A new beta build of Windows 10released on Wednesday enables Delivery Optimization by default, which lets PCs download update bits from other computers connected to the internet. Those bits can be delivered alongside those brought in from Microsoft's servers, to help speed up the process of downloading updates, especially on less reliable network connections.

Asus Zenbook Pro UX501VW review: Killer specs and pricing, offset by small flaws

Asus doesn?t seem to shy away from suggesting that the Zenbook Pro is its version of Apple?s MacBook Pro. First there?s the design, which Asus specifically describes as ?uni-body? (a term Apple uses for the MBP, albeit sans hyphen). The Zenbook Pro is alsoaluminum, quite thin, and stuffed with powerful hardware, not unlike the MacBook Pro. Oh, and there?s the name, lest the other similarities aren't enough.

But one massive difference between this laptop and its Apple equivalent does exist, and it?s one that Apple will never, ever be able to compete with: price. This fully loaded Zenbook Pro not only features massively better specs than the aging 15-inch MacBook Pro, it costs a whopping $1,000 lessthan a similarly configured model.

A new OpenSUSE Linux is coming to town, and it's all about stability

Linux users come in many shapes and sizes, but those in the business world typically steer clear of the bleeding edge. That's why the OpenSUSE project recently switched to a two-pronged development approach, with one version focused on constant updates and another on enterprise-grade stability. On Wednesday, the latter took a big step forward.

The first beta version of OpenSUSE Leap 42.2 is now available, giving enterprises and other stability-minded users the chance to check it out and get a taste of what's coming in the final release, which is due Nov. 16. This is the first key update to the Leap software since OpenSUSE adopted its dual-path approach late last year with OpenSUSE 42.1.

Instagram finally lets you zoom in on photos and videos

The two-finger zoom gesture is old hat by now?we?ve been doing it for almost 10 years, after all. And starting Wednesday, it finally works in the one app that needed it the most, the photo-centric social network everyone?s hopelessly addicted to: Instagram.

Starting today, you can pinch to zoom on photos and videos in feed, on profiles and on Explore. Dive into an adorable puppy?s smile or into every detail of your friend?s new shirt. Over the past six months, you?ve seen many exciting changes come to Instagram, from a new icon to longer videos and even a new way to share everyday moments with Instagram Stories. And as things change, we?re still focused on improving the core parts of Instagram. Zoom is available today for Instagram on iOS. Zoom will be available on Android in the coming weeks.

Asus may be planning Microsoft HoloLens competitor in its VR push

Virtual reality headsets are considered the hot new PC devices, and Asus is planning to stake a claim of its own.

Asus on Wednesday said it intends to release VR headsets.VR headsets can be versatile 3D PCs that make 2D laptops and desktops look pale in comparison, Asus said at the IFA trade show in Berlin.

"Asus has a few VR options coming up really soon. Once that happens, you will be free from devices and immersed in 360 degrees of pure entertainment that will blow you away," said Jen Chuang, Asus' design center director.

Asus didn't provide further details, but the company seems to want to focus on untethered VR headsets, or perhaps even mixed-reality headsets like Microsoft's HoloLens. It could tap into a few technologies to do so.

EVE Online's going free to play after 13 subscription-only years of epic spac...

?EVE is ready for this.? That?s the key takeaway from CCP?s latest blog post, announcing that after thirteen years of subscriptions EVE Online is going free-to-play. Sort-of.

This November, EVE will introduce two new ?Clone States,? the Alpha Clones and the Omega Clones. According to CCP, ?Your clone state will be determined by your account status. Characters on subscribed accounts will be granted Omega state, while Alpha state will be given to characters on any unsubscribed account.?

And as such, Omega Clones function the same as current paid subscribers. Nothing will change.

Facebook's new algorithm will help save VR movies from shaky-cam

Facebook wants to make sure that any VR home movies shared on its social network won't make people puke. That's why the company is building a new video stabilization algorithm that will help smooth out all of the bumps and shakes that come from wielding a 360-degree camera.

The new algorithm is designed for stabilizing 360-degree videos in particular, something that Facebook says is important for addressing the growing amount of spherical footage. Previous stabilization technology was designed primarily for videos with a smaller field of view because they were usually taken with traditional 2D cameras.

It's an important step for Facebook, which has been focused on virtual reality content and 360-degree video, especially after its US$2 billion acquisition of VR hardware maker Oculus in 2014. The social network introduced support for 360-degree video a year ago and has been pushing it ever since.
