What Changes Dual-Cameras are Going to Bring in Smartphones In 2017

What Changes Dual-Cameras are Going to Bring in Smartphones In 2017

Just forget about the faster processors and even high-resolution screens! Now, you’re entering into an era of phones outfitted with the dual-camera technology from Corephotonics, which is far better than 4K digital cameras.

How The Dual-Cameras Journey Started Out?

Way back in 2014, when an Israeli group was all set to install its new technology onto the future phones and probably you’ll be able to see these high-tech phones around the 3rd quarter of 2016. When it comes to the new dual-camera tech; it assures the optical zoom with non-moving parts, whereas also enabling for improved noise reduction, which is unavailable in present phone camera sensors.

A mobile world Congress, was held in 2014 in Barcelona and Corephotonics representative told CNET that this technology would come out soon, probably this year but, till two years, nothing happened. In fact, the delay is indeed annoying, particularly when it comes to the technology geeks who are looking to have something new and cool.

The benefits of the dual-camera technology were quite clear soon after the launch. Corephotonic’s vice president of sales and licensing, Eran Kali told that “the demand for the dual-camera tech was already there and was increasing with the passage of time, especially when the first development got completed in 2015.”

“At that point, we didn’t have sufficient supply-chain for dual-cameras and we were trying to refurbish it. I’m quite satisfied and happy to report that right now. We’re currently working on the three key aspects such as demand, supply chain and development. The entire process includes a framework of application processor and the camera manufacturing.

Despite the fact that Corephotonics refused to corroborate whether X-cam phones and LG’s new G5 have the dual-camera technology or not, we know that the developed technology is part of the in-house effort, an LG executive said. These phones don’t share the Corephotonics features such as they don’t have that optical zoom.

Flouting The Old Persistence

Let’s just accept the fact that the mobile phones are continuously striving to excite the users more. Almost each phone has same specifications; same storage options, same 4K digital cameras with the superficial feature differences such as water-resistant ability or by their looks or whether they have a fingerprint sensor or not. The customer wants something new that stands out and no doubt, the dual-camera tech gratifies that need.

Are you one of those who wished to get closer to the image, or you have gone nuts because of the awful picture looks as you forgot to turn on the flash or thinking how far-off you’re? Dual-camera technology fixes all of these issues and nails it in the aspect of compact point and shoot.

Dual-camera technology doesn’t only benefit the Android manufacturers, but there are rumors that Apple’s iPhone 7 will be featuring this tech and probably seized up by some other Israeli company working to enhance the phone cameras image quality.

On the other hand, you can also physically limit the size of the sensor when you squeeze it into a phone. Have you remembered that HTC have already tried this technology in the HTC’s 4 Megapixel shooter, and it didn’t work out well, whereas the Samsung’s New Galaxy S7 comes with the bigger sensor but still you can’t zoom in correctly with no optical zoom? On the other hand, the sensor’s new low-light performance of the Samsung looks inspiring in the demos.

2017 Will Be The Year Of Dual Cameras

Most probably, if there’s anything true in rumors regarding Apple, we will then experience the optical zoom feature in the iPhone 7 and of course, other companies will have to equip their gadgets as well to catch up.

Just stop thinking about the mobile payment and the virtual reality –dual-camera technology is where we all are heading this year. It offers great benefits and obviously, mobile photographers will have something more commendable to play with.

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

Now that 2011 is well underway and most people have fallen off the bandwagon when it comes to their New Year’s resolutions (myself included), it’s a good time to step back and take an honest look at our habits and the goals that we want to achieve.

Something that I have learned over the past few years is that if you track something, be it your eating habits, exercise, writing time, work time, etc. you become aware of the reality of the situation. This is why most diet gurus tell you to track what you eat for a week so you have an awareness of the of how you really eat before you start your diet and exercise regimen.

Tracking daily habits and progress towards goals is another way to see reality and create a way for you clearly review what you have accomplished over a set period of time. Tracking helps motivate you too; if I can make a change in my life and do it once a day for a period of time it makes me more apt to keep doing it.

So, if you have some goals and habits in mind that need tracked, all you need is a tracking tool. Today we’ll look at 7 different tools to help you keep track of your habits and goals.

Joe’s Goals

    Joe’s Goals is a web-based tool that allows users to track their habits and goals in an easy to use interface. Users can add as many goals/habits as they want and also check multiple times per day for those “extra productive days”. Something that is unique about Joe’s Goals is the way that you can keep track of negative habits such as eating out, smoking, etc. This can help you visualize the good things that you are doing as well as the negative things that you are doing in your life.

    Joe’s Goals is free with a subscription version giving you no ads and the “latest version” for $12 a year.

    Daytum

      Daytum

      is an in depth way of counting things that you do during the day and then presenting them to you in many different reports and groups. With Daytum you can add several different items to different custom categories such as work, school, home, etc. to keep track of your habits in each focus area of your life.

      Daytum is extremely in depth and there are a ton of settings for users to tweak. There is a free version that is pretty standard, but if you want more features and unlimited items and categories you’ll need Daytum Plus which is $4 a month.

      Excel or Numbers

        If you are the spreadsheet number cruncher type and the thought of using someone else’s idea of how you should track your habits turns you off, then creating your own Excel/Numbers/Google spreadsheet is the way to go. Not only do you have pretty much limitless ways to view, enter, and manipulate your goal and habit data, but you have complete control over your stuff and can make it private.

        What’s nice about spreadsheets is you can create reports and can customize your views in any way you see fit. Also, by using Dropbox, you can keep your tracker sheets anywhere you have a connection.

        Evernote

          I must admit, I am an Evernote junky, mostly because this tool is so ubiquitous. There are several ways you can implement habit/goal tracking with Evernote. You won’t be able to get nifty reports and graphs and such, but you will be able to access your goal tracking anywhere your are, be it iPhone, Android, Mac, PC, or web. With Evernote you pretty much have no excuse for not entering your daily habit and goal information as it is available anywhere.

          Evernote is free with a premium version available.

          Access or Bento

            If you like the idea of creating your own tracker via Excel or Numbers, you may be compelled to get even more creative with database tools like Access for Windows or Bento for Mac. These tools allow you to set up relational databases and even give you the option of setting up custom interfaces to interact with your data. Access is pretty powerful for personal database applications, and using it with other MS products, you can come up with some pretty awesome, in depth analysis and tracking of your habits and goals.

            Bento is extremely powerful and user friendly. Also with Bento you can get the iPhone and iPad app to keep your data anywhere you go.

            Analog Bonus: Pen and Paper

            All these digital tools are pretty nifty and have all sorts of bells and whistles, but there are some people out there that still swear by a notebook and pen. Just like using spreadsheets or personal databases, pen and paper gives you ultimate freedom and control when it comes to your set up. It also doesn’t lock you into anyone else’s idea of just how you should track your habits.

            Conclusion

            I can’t necessarily recommend which tool is the best for tracking your personal habits and goals, as all of them have their quirks. What I can do however (yes, it’s a bit of a cop-out) is tell you that the tool to use is whatever works best for you. I personally keep track of my daily habits and personal goals with a combo Evernote for input and then a Google spreadsheet for long-term tracking.

            What this all comes down to is not how or what tool you use, but finding what you are comfortable with and then getting busy with creating lasting habits and accomplishing short- and long-term goals.
