Hands-on: Instagrams New Focus Portrait Mode Feature

Facebook-owned Instagram has decided to throw its hat into the Portrait Mode game, though really this could be looked at as more of a toe dipping than a full-on dive. The reason I say this is that the new feature, which allows users on to take portrait mode images with computer-generated bokeh, is only available on devices which already have a portrait mode built into their system cameras. thephoblographer.com

This video explains the science behind how camera drones fly

The folks at WIRED have put together a great video for the science nerds among usand I do have a feeling there are a few. The video, which is part of WIRED's Dot Physics series, explains the physics behind drone flight; in other words: how that new DJI Mavic Air and quadcopters like it are able to hover, move in three dimensions, and rotate all by changing the speed at which various propellers spin. dpreview.com

Nikon D810 Replacement Could Be Just Weeks Away

Nikon has had a rollercoaster time of it lately, but 2017 may be about to turn into a positive year as rumours suggest the long-awaited replacement for the D810 could soon be announced. In fact, if sources are correct, the new high megapixel camera could be launched before the end of July! Internet rumour site Nikon Rumours is reporting the replacement for the D810 could be called the D820 or D850 and that its likely to sport a high-resolution sensor of around 45-megapixels, which would see a significant increase over the 36-MP D810. digitalrev.com
