Nebula Cosmos Max Brings 4K, HDR, And More In A Reasonably-Priced Home Theater Projector
We’re big fans of Anker’s Nebula line of portable projectors, which combine its compact size with great image reproduction and affordable pricing. Suffice to say, they’re arguably the best portable projector options out there. This time around, the outfit is turning its attention to your living room with the Nebula Cosmos Max.
That’s right, Nebula is making the leap from portable projectors to full-fledged home theater systems, so you can enjoy the same immersive viewing experience the outfit delivers on the road to your home cinema. Will it be as good as the high-end theater projectors from Sony, BenQ, or Epson? We don’t know, but we have a feeling it will be competitive enough to warrant consideration as a viable option.
The Nebula Cosmos Max can project video in full 4K UHD resolution (3840 x 2160) up to 150 inches, allowing you to play contemporary 4K content the way they were meant to be enjoyed. It pairs that sharp image with HDR10 color reproduction, ensuring all colors pop out of screen as vivid and vibrant as they do in real life, while blacks show off deeper and darker for enhanced contrast. And yes, it’s automatically able to upscale non-4K and non-HDR content using built-in algorithms, so even HD movies in your library will benefit from the projector’s improved picture quality.
It uses a TI DLP rated at 1,500 ANSI lumens, so this thing is exceptionally bright, allowing erstwhile darker details to be more visible for cinema-quality realism, while a LED bulb, in place of a UHP lamp, enable a 13 percent greater color range and a whopping 30,000 hours of operation. There’s also built-in dynamic smoothing, allowing it to show high-speed action images with increased frame rates, so you can watch sports and play video games with crystal clear clarity, even in the busiest moments.
The Nebula Cosmos Max comes with all the conveniences you’ve come to expect from modern projectors, including keystone correction, auto-inversion, and high-speed autofocus, so you don’t have to fuss too much about setting the projector up properly. It has four 10W speakers built-in blasting out omnidirectional sound, so it should deliver loud and satisfying audio comparable to the best TVs without needing to be hooked up to any speaker, complete with a professional-grade DSP, Dolby Digital Plus, and a 12-band equalizer for tailoring the sound to your liking.
Since this is a modern device, after all, it has built-in Wi-Fi for connectivity and runs Android 9, allowing you to install a load of video and streaming apps, so there’s no need to hook it up to a separate streaming box. Each one comes with a remote, so you can switch to a different program from the comfort of the couch, along with a companion app (iOS and Android), in case you prefer doing everything on your phone. Other features include 32GB of onboard storage, quiet fans that run at a maximum sound of 32 decibels, two HDMI slots, two USB slots, and an RCA slot.
A Kickstarter campaign is currently running for the Nebula Cosmos Max. You can reserve a unit for pledges starting at $1,099.
•Nikon Z 50: This Mirrorless Camera Is Designed For Instagram And YouTube Content
Nikon was a little late to the mirrorless party, only having found any real success with the introduction of the Z mount late last year. As with all things, though, it’s better late than never, as they’ve actually put out two of the more impressive mirrorless shooters since then. Of course, they’re also two of the more expensive. If you’ve been waiting for a more affordable version of those cameras, the Nikon Z 50 just might be your mirrorless model of choice.
A DX-format mirrorless camera, it’s geared towards the modern-day vlogging crowd, bringing the kind of features required by folks creating content for YouTube, Instagram, and all those other services where people in obscurity can somehow find a dedicated audience. Yes, it’s quite a substantial upgrade from your phone camera, but if you’re serious about leveling up your online content, the sub-$1000 price really does make it a very attractive option.
The Nikon Z 50 combines a 20.9 megapixel DX CMOS sensor with an EXPEED 6 image processor, which, the outfit claims, delivers a mix of high sensitivity, nuanced image quality, and fast overall performance. Paired with the wider Z-mount, that combo also enables more professional footage in low-light conditions. It can shoot 4K video at 30 fps and full HD at up to 120 fps, making this viable for capturing slow-motion footage, as well as timelapse footage that can be finished directly from the camera. For stills, it can capture RAW and JPEG files with up to 5568 x 3712 pixels of resolution, complete with full-resolution continuous shooting rate of 11 fps and 8-megapixel shots at 30 fps.
It has a 3.2-inch touchscreen in the back for playback, live view shooting, and navigating through settings, complete with a 180-degree flip-under tilting design to allow for unobstructed selfies. If you prefer framing your shots at eye level, it gets a 2.36 million-dot electronic viewfinder that brings 1.02x magnification for excellent visibility of every frame you take. Do note, the fact that the screen flips down means it won’t quite work with traditional monopods for vlogging (they’ll obstruct your view of the screen), so Nikon claims they’re currently developing a proprietary handle for the camera.
The Nikon Z 50 has a 209-point phase-detection autofocus system that, the outfit claims, covers 87 percent of the frame horizontally and 85 percent vertically, as well as an ISO range of 100 up to 51,200. Built-in tools allow you to edit your captured footage extensively and immediately transfer it to your phone wirelessly, so you can post content to your social media accounts as soon as you take out the mobile device you have sitting in your pocket. Other features include a magnesium alloy construction that’s resistant to both water and dust, a mic input, an SD card slot, and a rechargeable battery rated at up to 300 shots per charge. There is, however, no optical image stabilization, so it might not be the best option when shooting videos on the move.
The Nikon Z 50 is available now, priced starting at $859.95.
• Tile Sticker Puts Bluetooth Tracking In A Coin-Sized Device That Attaches To Any Object
From luggage and gear cases to cameras and remotes, a Bluetooth tracker is a great way to never lose track of your stuff. Just slap one of those things on there and you’ll be able to know exactly the location of an item by simply launching an app. Truth be told, though, we find the current generation of Bluetooth trackers a little big – so much so, that they can easily be spotted and taken off when somebody actually wants to steal your stuff. While the same holds true for the Tile Sticker, its new dimensions does make it significantly smaller than its predecessors, making it a small step in the right direction.
Instead of the tile-shaped devices they came in previously, the outfit’s new Bluetooth tracker come shaped like a coin. Well, a very thick coin. This should make them a bit more streamlined in appearance, allowing them to more easily integrate with any gear you want to keep tabs on.
The Tile Sticker is a coin-sized device that measures 1.1 x 0.3 inches (diameter x thickness), making it very easy to integrate even in smaller items. Because of the smaller size, it has a shorter Bluetooth range than the outfit’s other trackers, maxing out at just 150 feet compared to the Pro’s 400 feet and the Mate’s 200 feet. It also makes a slightly quieter ringing sound than the larger options, which is probably just fine considering its shorter range.
Just because it’s smaller, though, doesn’t make it inferior in every way. You know how the older Tile trackers are all water-resistant, so they can get splashed and rained on without taking damage? Well, this one’s even more reinforced, coming in with a fully waterproof build, so you can safely drop it in the bath tub, soak it in the river, or immerse it in water for any reason. That way, you can safely and easily use it to find your bag when you accidentally drop it in the lake while you’re fishing.
The Tile Sticker has an adhesive backing that, the outfit claims, will easily bond to most metal and plastic surfaces, allowing you to install it by simply peeling the back cover and slapping it on the surface of the object you want to track. When stuck onto a flat and clean surface, the adhesive will reportedly bond for a good five years before giving out, making it suitable for attaching onto rigs that are likely to see a lot of rugged action, such as skateboards, bikes, and that inflatable canoe you take out for a weekend once a year.
While the company’s previous smaller trackers used replaceable coin batteries, making them usable for long periods, this one is fitted with a built-in, non-rechargeable unit. Don’t worry, though, the integrated battery is rated to last for a good three years, so it will let you keep track of your items for a reasonable length of time.
The Tile Sticker is available in packs of two.
• Skydio 2 Drone Brings The Most Advanced Flight AI In The Market
Skydio’s original drone leveled up the game in autonomous flight, with its ability to dodge obstacles in its path in real time. This allowed it to weave through crowded airspace instead of merely updating its flight path, giving it the ability to follow subjects even in the densest forests. Their latest quadcopter, the Skydio 2, continues to innovate on the autonomous front, turning out a drone that, the outfit claims, is easiest to fly and least likely to crash.
Touting “the most advanced flying AI on the planet,” the quadcopter expands on the impressive capabilities that made its predecessor stand out. Whether you’re a filmmaker who incorporates aerial shots in your cinematography, an action junkie who chronicles your escapades in film, or a commercial user wishing to integrate flying cameras into your workflow, a drone with this level of intelligence will be a valuable addition to anyone’s gear collection.
The Skydio 2 is fitted with six 200-degree 4K cameras all around its body, allowing it to see in every direction and stay aware of its surroundings at all times, while GPS tracking allows it to keep tabs of subjects even when you temporarily veer out of view. All that footage is processed by a Nvidia Jetson TX2, which is equipped with 256 GPU cores that allow it to perform 1.3 trillion operations per second, making it one of the most powerful embedded AI computing devices around. Paired with the outfit’s proprietary algorithms, this combination enables the drone’s impressive talents, which include real-time obstacle avoidance, simultaneous tracking of up to 10 objects of interest, and a 3D world model update rate of one million iterations per second.
It uses Sony’s IMX577 sensor as its main recording camera, which records 4K footage at 60 fps and captures 12 megapixel HDR photos. An integrated three-axis gimbal enables stable footage, regardless of flight conditions, even while it travels at the maximum autonomous flight speed of 36 mph.
The Skydio 2 can be operated using three controllers: the Beacon, a companion app, and a full-featured low-latency control pad. The Beacon is designed for those who simply want the drone to follow them, with controls that allow you change its shooting angle at the push of a button, complete with quick access to other autonomous flight modes, in case you need them. Both the app and the control pad offer full control of the drone, making them the ideal option for those who want access to its full range of capabilities. The Beacon, by the way, has a maximum range of 1.5 kilometers, which the controller expands to 3.5 kilometers. Controlling it from a phone shortens the range to just 200 meters.
The drone can withstand maximum wind speeds of 25 mph, climb to heights of up to 1,640 feet, and stay in the air up to 23 minutes between charges. It’s also 50 percent quieter than its predecessor, making it a much better drone all around.
Want one? The Skydio 2 comes out in November, priced at $999, with the Beacon and the controller available for $149 each.
• GoPro Hero8 Black Refines The Action Cam Into Its Best Form Yet
Unlike previous releases, the GoPro Hero8 Black doesn’t bring that one killer feature that sets it apart from its predecessors. From 4K shooting and digital image stabilization to livestreaming options and everything in between, there’s nothing in the new action cam that you haven’t seen before. Instead of new features, the outfit focused on refinement, updating the GoPro’s most important elements to make them even better.
If you’ve been using GoPros for a bit now, chances are, you’ll notice the physical redesign. You know how the GoPro has always had a frame that you needed to attach to give it mounting brackets? That’s gone now. Instead, they integrated the brackets right at the bottom of the device, then moved both the battery and SD card slots to the right. This way, you can still charge the camera and swap out storage cards even with the action cam mounted on a tripod, making it just a tad more convenient to use. If you ever left home forgetting to bring that detachable frame, then you know this makes for a very helpful change.
The GoPro Hero8 Black can record in 4K at 60 fps and 1080p at up to 240 fps, along with a whole host of settings in between, making it perfectly viable for shooting everything from ultra-sharp fixed-frame scenes to high-quality action shots in slow motion. One of the big updates last generation is the addition of digital stabilization. Well, that gets even more refined here, with early reviews touting its ability to mimic the appearance of shooting with a gimbal. Those same reviews, however, warn that the stabilization processing is so good, some shots can look artificial (as in, you’re expecting movement and not getting any). That’s why the outfit added the ability to choose how much stabilization you want to do – set it on high for maximum smoothness and lower a bit, depending on how you want the footage to feel. And yes, the stabilization is available in all shooting modes now, regardless of resolution or framerate.
The GoPro Hero8 Black also comes with an updated version of the outfit’s timelapse mode, complete with automatic speed adjustments based on different conditions, as well as four digital lenses that alters the frame’s field of view for more stylized shots. Other notable features include 1080p livestreaming, new activity presets that automatically change the settings to suit the situation, 14 voice commands, and improved audio recording with three onboard mics. As always, the camera remains rugged with the same familiar shock-absorbing body and waterproof construction up to 33 feet.
Of course, they also offer new accessories. These include a Media Mod, which gives it a shotgun mic, a 3.5mm mic slot, two cold shoe mounts, and an HDMI port, as well as a Light Mod that puts powerful LED lighting on top of the device. Those still hankering for a screen on their action cam can pick up the Display Mod, which adds a flip-up screen that you can use to finally take properly-framed selfies with your GoPro.
The GoPro Hero8 Black is available for preorder now, priced at $399.99.
