Fujifilm’s newest creation, the X-M1, was outed last week when photos of the entry-level X-Series interchangeable lens camera (ILC) leaked onto the web. But while the photos did reveal that the camera would pack a serious punch in a tiny package (in large part due to the lack of a built-in viewfinder), many of the camera’s specs and features were still unknown.

Well, the day has arrived for Fuji to make the camera official, and along with some high-res press images, we’re also getting a full breakdown of specs, pricing and an expected release date. Read more…

A Remote Shutter Release for iOS Devices That Masquerades as a Roll of Film

Ever since the launch of iOS 5 in mid-2011, iPhones, iPads, and iPods have accepted the “volume up” signal as a “take a picture” command, allowing Apple’s headphones to double as handy remote shutter releases.

Federal Judge Blocks the Release of Bin Laden Death Photos

After the death of Osama bin Laden and the subsequent dumping of his body into the sea, a number of groups have called for the release of photographs captured during and after the raid — particularly the images showing his corpse. A year ago we reported that the Associated Press had taken legal action to obtain the images. Yesterday federal judge James Boasberg put an end to all the requests by ruling that there were legitimate national security interests at stake and that the photos would not be released. He writes,

A picture may be worth a thousand words. And perhaps moving pictures bear an even higher value. Yet, in this case, verbal descriptions of the death and burial of Osama bin Laden will have to suffice, for this court will not order the release of anything more.

Needless to say, this latest ruling will help the many conspiracy theories about bin Laden’s death live on.
