Can you recommend a good IP/Web camera for monitoring an infirm pensioner?

I’ve got a challenge that’s been presented to me by a relative (I’m keeping this one as anonymous as possible). One of my relative’s parents is becoming increasingly infirm. The parent lives in elderly accommodation and they have one of those ‘red button’ alarm services installed, activated either by pulling a cord or by using […]

Behind the scenes: Why I’m renting my camera equipment in the States

Last year I was temporary delayed at the US border in Los Angeles. It was not a stunning experience. Not after a 12-hour flight. I thought you might like a little bit of background into what goes into delivering some of the content you see/view here on Mobile Industry Review. A few years ago I […]

When do we give Police Officers phones with decent cameras?

Have a look at that screenshot there. It’s from yesterday’s online London Telegraph story about the twins who were reportedly mauled by a fox. The blurry picture you see was taken by one of the first police officers to arrive at the family’s home. It shows a crazily blurred image of a fox. Or perhaps […]

“Who” do you think you are using that RAZR camera?

So I went to see the Who last night in Hamilton, EXCELLENT show I must say. For being in their 60’s, Roger & Pete still know how to rock. The one thing that amazed me (that always amazes me) is people taking pictures with their crappy camera phones. Do they not realize that’s not going […]

What’s the camera like on the T-Mobile G1?

I snapped this shot with an HTC T-Mobile G1 while a chap from T-Mobile demo’d another G1 on-camera for the Mobile Industry Review show. The lighting in this room wasn’t great but it certainly wasn’t as bad as it could have been. The G1 camera has autofocus (unlike the iPhone) but apart from that it […]

Sony have jumped ahead on the megapixel category with their latest handset, the C905 Cyber-shot. Of course, as Dan Lane (regular contributor to the SMS Text News podcast) points out, megapixels aren’t necessarily indicative of photo quality per se. However if the C905 is anything like Sony’s K800 or K850 series handsets, it’ll be simply […]
