Sony has announced the international sales of the Sony Airpeak S1 professional drone.

Acceptance of orders has already begun, and deliveries will start on December 24th. Recall that the drone debuted at the January CES 2021 exhibition. The manufacturer is positioning the Airpeak S1 as a professional device focused on use in tandem with Sony Alpha mirrorless cameras.

The drone can fly on a single charge for 22 minutes without a load and up to 12 minutes with a “heavy payload” such as the Sony A7S Mark III camera.

Sony promises that the Airpeak is capable of maintaining stability in flight in winds up to 20 m / s, which can be useful for shooting in windy conditions. The maximum speed reaches 25 m / s. Five sets of stereo cameras and an infrared rangefinder are responsible for obstacle avoidance.

The Sony Airpeak S1 is not cheap at all – $ 9,000. At the same time, the kit does not even include a stabilizing gimbal for the camera, only a controller, two sets of blades, two batteries and a charger.

Run for this high-end Samsung QLED Smart TV at a minimum price

Published

on

Samsung is on the way to eliminate LCD TVs from its offer of 4K models. Currently, the cheapest QLEDs have reached almost the price of LCD models, and by 2021, the company planned to stop offering LCDs. the descent of QLED price continues to leave us surprises, as one of the best models with local dimming at minimum price.

within the QLED TVs several aspects must be differentiated depending on the range of TV that we buy. One of the most important aspects is the local dimming. This technique allows the TV to turn off its LED backlighting in zones, of which there are typically hundreds of zones.

Local dimming: the QLED fight for pure black

Thanks to this, deeper blacks are achieved, since in a traditional LCD or a QLED without local dimming, the rear panel is fully illuminated; even when seeking to display the color black. Thus, in these situations, the black color is actually grayish, since the rear LED panel does not turn off, but rather seeks to block the maximum amount of light with the LCD panel or from Quantum Dots what’s ahead And always some light escapes.

Local dimming also saves energy on the television, as well as offering a higher level of brightness in lighted areas. Although this allows it to get closer to OLED, and even improve it in brightness level, it also has other drawbacks, such as the Blooming. This effect is generated around illuminated content if, for example, it is surrounded by a black background, such as a candle at night. The more local dimming zones the television has, the less it will be noticed.

Q80A: the cheapest QLED with local dimming

For this reason, Samsung has QLED with local dimming, offering models with hundreds and even thousands of zones, such as Neo QLED. In today’s offer we find the QE55Q80AATXXC, the cheapest QLED model that sells, reduced Samsung with local dimming. It has a maximum brightness of 600 nits, Quantum HDR 5000, and HDR10+ and HLG support.

This 2021 model features resolution 4K and a size of 55 inches. It incorporates a native 120 Hz panel and HDMI 2.1 connectivity in one of its ports, making it ideal for use with a console. At the level of wireless connectivity, we find Bluetooth 5.2 and WiFi 5.

The Q80A has VRR and ALLM, as well as having Tizen 6.0 as operating system. In addition, it has DVB-T2 and DVB-S2 tuners.

There was a problem with QR codes on Android 12: Google Camera randomly changes addresses

Published

on

Recently, QR codes have firmly entered our daily lives, whether we like it or not. But QR codes can also pose a security risk, as the user may not always be able to immediately see which website they are being directed to. While dedicated scanner apps usually show you which URL is hidden inside a QR code, Google Camera seems to try to automatically correct addresses it thinks are wrong, which is more trouble than it’s worth.

There was a problem with QR codes on Android 12: Google Camera randomly changes addresses

According to the German edition of Heise, after an investigation, the Google Camera app on Android 12 regularly issues at least three types of erroneous addresses.

The first type of erroneous corrected addresses most commonly occurs when an address is hidden behind a QR code using country code top-level domains (ccTLDs). Google Camera inserts an extra dot in such cases. For example, https://fooco.at becomes https://foo.co.at. As Heise discovered, the problem affects not only the Austrian .at domain, but also .au, .br, .hu, .il, .kr, .nz, .ru, .tr, .uk and .za.

The second issue concerns addresses with top-level domains that are longer than two letters (such as the Catalan .cat). In this case, Google Camera can “swallow” the rest of the address, turning the Catalan independence referendum address https://referendum.cat into a non-existent Canadian address https://referendum.ca. The same problem exists for .int, .pro, .travel, .apple, .bet, .beer, and .amex, with almost all of them abbreviated to the first two letters, with the exception of .apple, which becomes .app). The issue also affects new top-level domains such as .army, .art, .arte, .arab, .audio, .audio, .auto, and .autos.

Another problem concerns addresses with numbers in the subdomain (usually in the www part). Here Google Camera randomly adds a period again, turning working addresses like the Royal Bank of Canada https://www6.rbc.com into non-working https://www.6.rbc.com. Moreover, errors can be combined. As a result, https://www2co.at will become https://www.2.co.at.

The problems appear not only in Chrome, but also in other browsers, even if they are set as the default application on an Android 12 device. For example, when using Firefox, users will still be redirected to the wrong link when scanning a QR code using Google Camera.

Google Camera only reads QR codes when the user activates Google Lens suggestions in their settings. At the same time, according to Heise, the standalone Google Lens app itself works fine with all types of QR codes and does not cause any errors.

Heise was able to confirm their findings with Pixel 3 XL, 3a, 4, 4a, 5, and 6 Pro running Android 12. Pixel 3a running Android 11 did not experience the issue, but appeared after updating to the latest OS version.

Interestingly, the other day a similar step was taken in Instagram. TikTok is exploring the possibility of allowing celebrity creators to set fees for access to their content they post on TikTok. So far, the paid subscriptions feature is being tested in a very limited way.

A TikTok representative told Engadget reporters:

We are always thinking of new ways to benefit our community and enrich the TikTok experience.”

While the subscriptions feature is not available to everyone, fans can still support their favorite creators with money using the Tips feature, as well as buy and send virtual gifts to them.
