A couple of weeks ago, we shared a hack by photographer Trey Ratcliff that allowed you to upload your photos to Google+ at full resolution by using Google Drive. Android users could already upload full-sized photos from their phone, the hack simply allowed desktop users to do the same.

This is reportedly the first full image of the upcoming Fujifilm X1 mirrorless camera (or LX10, depending on who you believe). Mirrorless Rumors published it a few hours ago but then abruptly removed the post. Luckily for us, the full res image that was linked to is still accessible. The official announcement will likely come at CES next week.

Pentax has just released five full resolution photographs taken with their new medium format DSLR, the Pentax 645D. These 40 megapixel photos are 7264×5440, and weigh in at around 17 megabytes each. The sample shot website also has EXIF data, though most of the page is in Japanese. There’s still no word on when (if ever) the 645D will be released outside Japan.
