Photographer Documents The Death Of Real-Life Conversation


 Photographer Documents The Death Of Real-Life Conversation
As our smartphones make it easier to connect with people across the globe, they often can make it harder to connect face-to-face. London-based photographer Babycakes Romero doesn't own a smartphone. Instead, he treks along in his beloved city, camera in hand, capturing whatever catches his eye. "As a person dedicated to observation, I just feel I would be missing too much of the world around me if I was staring into the palm of my hand the whole time," he says. In his photo series, Death of a Conversation, Romero captures people connection with their digital devices rather than with each other — a phenomenon he believes is only creating more pain and social awkwardness to the world.

 Apple’s IPhone 6 Lets Users Ditch Compact Camera

 Sony Gives Lens-Style Cameras Another Go
Remember Sony's lens-style cameras — the snap-on ones that look like lenses and can be mounted on your smartphone? Sony didn't abandon the concept it launched in September 2013; rather, it just added two more cameras to its lineup. The two new models are the ILCE-QX1 and the DSC-QX30.

 Sony Unveils The QX1 And QX30 Lens And Camera Sensor Add-Ons For Smartphones
Sony has indeed added to its lineup of camera tech add-ons for smartphone devices today, with not one, but two new devices in the QX series of accessories. The QX1 and QX30 join the existing QX10 and QX100, with the QX1 offering interchangeable lenses as revealed in a leak earlier, and the QX30 offering 30x optical zoom. The two new Sony accessories both offer ways to improve your photo quality on smartphones, but the QX1 really steps things up by offering a bayonet mount that works with existing E-mount and A-mount interchangeable lenses. It also includes a shooting accessory kit that lets users set up the lens for selfies, and for getting tough high and low angle shots.

Intel Launches Messaging App Using Cartoons To Mimic Sender's Face
Intel Corp is getting into voice instant messaging with a smartphone app that uses facial tracking technology to caricature a sender's expressions.
