Google has published a second sample photo captured using its Google Glass augmented reality glasses. This time it’s a 3MP photograph captured by Googler Sebastian Thrun while spinning with his son Jasper. It’s an interesting example of the moments people will soon be able to capture if wearable, voice-controlled cameras become a part of how we document our lives. No word on whether the camera quality has improved since the first sample photo was released, but this latest one sure looks better.

When Fujifilm said that the X-Pro1’s sensor “resolution and low noise will surpass rival 35mm full size sensor[s]”, they weren’t kidding. Photographers Christian Fletcher and Michael Coyne have both been testing out the camera, and have extremely positive things to say about it:
My initial feelings are that this camera is a worthy replacement for a bulky dslr system. If you have to travel light, this is the camera for you. Physically it is only marginally larger than the x100 so slinging it around your neck for a day is no problem. In fact I am wearing mine right now!, it is a fashion accessory!! Man bling! or Girl Bling too for that matter. [#]
Fletcher has published a number of untouched sample photos to his blog, including the ISO 6400 image above shot by Coyne. Click here to check out the full-res version (be prepared to pick your jaw up off the floor). Some more sample photos can be seen here, including an ISO 25600 one.
