MPortable

The new MPortable is billed as the world first portable wireless SSD (solid state drive) designed with photographers in mind. Built to withstand "severe shaking and dropping," the MPortable drive is capable of automatically transmitting photos from a connected camera and supports various image file types including most raw image file formats. "With write speeds of 200MB/second and read speeds of 400MB/second, the MPortable [SSD] easily outperforms virtually all USB flash disk technologies used by photographers," says Bond Wong, an engineer working for MAJC IT, the Zhuhai, China-based company that developed the device. Interested readers are encouraged to pay a visit to the project's IndieGoGo page.

iPatch Case

The iPatch Case is a smartphone case with an integrated lens cap for the built-in camera. "Before iPatch, the only way to protect your always-on camera was with a piece of tape. Not exactly high-tech," the inventors say. "Our case blocks the camera but not the all-important sensors on your phone. You’ll notice a tiny opening on the front iPatch cover – that allows for the phone’s proximity and light sensors to remain fully functional while completely blacking out the camera." The comercial launch of the iPatch Case is financed through a crowdfunding campaign on HeadFunder.

Facetune for Android

Lightricks has announced Facetune for Android, an app that promises to enable every smartphone user to transform everyday mugshots into high-end portraits. “The tremendous success and rave reviews with Facetune for iOS (4.8 stars out of 5 on the App store over thousands of reviews) led to countless requests for the app from Android users,” says Zeev Farbman, Lightricks' CEO. “Today, we are just as excited to release this product to Android as our users are to receive it, and we are eagerly awaiting their reaction." Facetune for Android is offered at the introductory price of $2.99 and available worldwide exclusively on the Google Play Store.

Fujifilm Updates X-Mount Lens Roadmap

Fujifilm has released a new roadmap for its X-mount lenses. The updated chart includes one new lens (the Fujinon XF90mm f/2 R), whilst a previously announced but hitherto unnamed ultra-wide angle lens has now been confirmed as the Fujinon XF16mm f/1.4 R. Additionally, the company has changed the release dates for three lenses that we have already seen on earlier editions of the roadmap. The next available lens will be the XF50-140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR, which is now scheduled to hit the shops at the end of this year. This will be Fujifilm’s second weather resistant lens designed to partner its X-T1 camera. The Fujinon XF16-55mm f/2.8 R WR, on the other hand, has been pushed back to 2015 Q1. The still unspecified "super tele photo zoom lens" is now being promised to arrive at the end of that year.
