Canon’s New APS-H Sensor Manages to Squeeze 250-Megapixels in a DSLR Sized Sensor

The Megapixel war seems to be far from over, as Canon has unleashed its latest piece of gadgetry – a DSLR camera with a mind-boggling 250-Megapixel sensor. The imaging community has reached a point of maturity where in the performance of the camera is not judged merely by the Megapixels, yet it isn’t stopping companies to innovate further and stuff in higher megapixels in smaller sensors.Canon has created a new 250-megapixel APS-H sensor and it is slightly bigger than the APS-C which is pretty common in DSLRs. On the other hand, the new 250-Megapixel sensor is in fact smaller than the full-frame sensors used in the professional cameras. Apart from Megapixels, its the sensor size that affects camera performance, a 8-Megapixel camera fitted in a 1/4 sensor is not equal to the 8-Megapixel fitted into a 1/2 sensor.The larger surface area of the sensor allows it to capture more light, translating into well-lit photographs even in low light conditions.

Engagement Vs. Monetization: How Small Media Companies Can Walk The Fine Line

As the online advertising landscape continues to evolve, more traditional ad-buying metrics, such as impressions or clicks, are being blended with other measurements to address newer advertiser concerns. The most visible of these are engagement and its cousin, viewability, and publishers are starting to adapt their businesses to accommodate this trend.Some high-profile media companies have already taken actions to take advantage of this new reality: The Financial Times’ use of time-on-page as an ad-buying metric and Twitter’s release of objective-based metrics are just two examples of this trend. These tactics have met with some early success, but they require some upfront work and investment by the media company.There seems to be little written about what smaller companies can do to level the playing field, and I want to tackle this here.From the conversations I’ve had with our media partners, one way independent publishers are tackling this issue is by judiciously segmenting their a…

The listing further reveals that the smartphone will come equipped with a 5.2-inch display unit which is most likely to be set at an resolution of 1080p (FHD). The Snapdragon 810 SoC will be mated with a mammoth 4GB of RAM and the device will run Cyanogen OS 12.1 based on Android 5.5.1 Lollipop out of the box.A careful peek into the import listing shows that the device is imported at a price of Rs 20,752 which roughly conveys the fact that final price of the device can hover around Rs 20,000 to Rs 25,000 price range.

Huawei Nexus 6 Spotted on Indian Imports Tracking Site, Hints at a 5.5-inch Display

After a series of leaks and rumors for the new Nexus 6, the smartphone has been spotted on the Indian import export tracking website Zauba. This listing possibly points at the fact that the devices are being imported to India for testing and R&D purposes.Series of listings from July to September indicate that Huawei shipped the device code named as Angular into the Indian shores. The listing further also points at a 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, LTE connectivity and a 5.5-inch display.The smartphone has been imported from China to Bangalore, where the Huawei R&D is situated, so it’s not wise to assume Huawei and Google will be selling the new Nexus 6 in India anytime soon.This leak contradicts the earlier ones, which said that the Huawei Nexus would be fitted with a 5.7-inch display while the LG Nexus 5 2015 will come with a smaller 5.2-inch display unit. That being said, we are assuming Huawei Angular refers to Nexus 6 based on the tweets by the serial leaker @onleaks…
