Google’s Quest to Build the Perfect One-Tap Smartphone Camera

Across all three generations, the cameras on Google’s Pixel are extraordinary in their simplicity.

Shooting With Sony’s Killer A9 Almost Feels Like Cheating

If you’ve ever wondered how a photographer managed to capture the exact moment of an incredible end zone reception or the instant a bird takes flight, the answer, in part, is that the photographer’s camera also captured the garbage moments directly before and after that golden frame, with a very expensive camera rattling off photos at tommy gun speeds.
