As a professional photographer, I’ve been blown away by how the iPhone 11 Pro has been able to replace my DSLR on photo shoots. But Apple just introduced the iPhone 12 lineup, which includes the iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, and the camera tech is even better this time around. (Here’s everything Apple announced at the October event.) The iPhone 12 Pro Max’s camera updates especially, both in hardware and software, have already got me buzzing about going shooting with this thing. Here’s why I’m so excited.
More zoom with the 2.5x telephoto lens
I love the telephoto zoom lens on the iPhone 11 Pro, but at only 2x, it doesn’t always provide quite the level of zoom I want. I often find myself digitally zooming in further to get the exact composition I want. The iPhone

CHEOPS has released the results of its observation on alien planet WASP-189b
WASP-189b’s orbit is tilted dramatically and orbits its star every 2.7 Earth days
WASP-189b has temperatures reaching 5,800 Fahrenheit
The European Space Agency’s Characterizing Exoplanet Satellite (CHEOPS) has recently discovered an alien planet about 1.6 times the size of Jupiter. Aside from having a strange orbit, it is also scorching hot.
WASP-189b, the newly discovered alien planet, was first detected in 2018 and has been recorded to have temperatures reaching 5,800 Fahrenheit — almost as hot as Earth’s outer core and is even hot enough to turn iron into gas, ESA’s study revealed.
Aside from having a size comparable to Jupiter, the exoplanet is also considered a “Hot Jupiter” due to its extremely short orbital period (2.7 Earth days). A Hot Jupiter is a gas planet with a “Jupiter-like” size that orbits very close to its
The Minecraft Mainstays Are the Second DLC Fighters Added to Fighters Pass Vol. 2
On Oct. 13, worldwide phenomenon Minecraft is sending two of its finest rectangular heroes to join the ever-expanding cast of playable fighters in the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate game for the Nintendo Switch system. Steve and Alex, who both proudly sport more right angles than a high school geometry class, will be the seventh DLC fighters added to the game. They are part of the second Challenger Pack in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass Vol. 2, which also includes a new stage and seven music tracks from the Minecraft series.

In a video hosted by Masahiro Sakurai, the Super Smash Bros. creator detailed the boxy new fighters, providing a detailed breakdown of their one-of-a-kind move set, which involves digging into stages to gather
The existence of liquid water on Mars — one of the more hotly debated matters about our cold, red neighbor — is looking increasingly likely.
New research published Monday in the journal Nature Astronomy indicates that there really is a buried reservoir of super salty water near the south pole. Scientists say such a lake would significantly improve the likelihood that Mars just might harbor microscopic life of its own.
Some scientists remain unconvinced that what’s been seen is liquid water, but the latest study adds weight to a tentative 2018 finding from radar maps of the planet’s crust made by the Mars Express robot orbiter.
That research suggested that an underground “lake” of liquid water had pooled beneath frozen layers of sediment near the south pole — akin to the subglacial lakes detected beneath the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets on Earth.
BEIJING, Sept. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — China’s leading high-end, premium electric SUV, the HiPhi X, makes its debut at the 2020 Beijing Auto Show. Designed and built by Human Horizons in Shanghai, the HiPhi X combines cutting-edge technical innovation, sustainable manufacturing and state-of-the-art design, to create the world’s first continuously evolving super SUV. The event provides a new opportunity for Human Horizons to showcase some specific technical elements of HiPhi X, including a number of world-first innovations, which establish the company as a key player in the electrified era of intelligent mobility.
Japan is going to Mars—and it’s taking an incredibly detailed video camera with it.
A joint venture between the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and Japan’s state broadcaster NHK—which pioneered HD and Ultra HD TV technology and broadcasting—will jointly develop a “Super Hi-Vision Camera” capable of filming both 4K and 8K images for JAXA to take to Mars.
JAXA has history here; its Kaguya (Selene) lunar orbiter in 2008 produced the first high-definition HD video ever seen of the Moon.
It’s also helped produce 4K filming from the International Space Station (ISS).
Its new camera will go to Mars in 2024 as part of JAXA’s Martian Moons eXploration mission. It will be the first time that 8K Ultra HD images of Mars and its moons are taken in proximity.
The best gaming PCs come in all shapes and sizes. Some people don’t mind having a box the size of a skyscraper on top of their desk, while others prefer something smaller—perhaps for a media center or a desk with limited surface area. Now you can get MSI’s compact Trident 3 PC for $150 off the usual price, complete with a 10th-gen Intel CPU and an RTX 2060 Super graphics card.
With the RTX 30-series starting to arrive, with the Nvidia RTX 3080 going on sale tomorrow, we’re starting to see companies cutting the price of their current-gen machines. But that doesn’t mean you’re not getting good hardware, and we’re not going to see equivalent mainstream GPUs around the RTX 2060 Super’s price point for a little while yet. Potentially not until next year.
