Fujifilm has announced it’s recalling more than 270,000 wall power adapters due to the risk of electrical shock. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the affected chargers were sold with six different camera models Fujifilm offers. The cameras and batteries themselves, however, are still safe to use.

In an announcement on its site, Fujifilm says certain AC–5VF power adapters that were packaged in Japan and sold throughout the United States and Canada are affected. Specifically, the cameras include the FinePix XP90, XP95, XP120, and XP 125 in the XP-series of rugged point-and-shoots, and X-A3 and X-A10 models in the X-series.

Finding the serial number of your camera can be done by looking at the sticker under the flip-up screen on the Fujifilm X-A3 and X-A10 models and on the bottom of the camera on the FinePix XP90, XP95, XP120, and XP125 models. Below is a helpful illustration provided by Fujifilm.

If for some reason the number has been rubbed off or otherwise removed, you can also find the serial number using the metadata of photos taken with the camera. Simply open up a program such as Adobe Lightroom or upload a photo to an online service such as Metapicz, and you should be able to find the serial number of your camera.

Once you have the serial number, enter it into the search box provided by Fujifilm on this page. The results will inform you whether or not your plug could be affected.

If it is, Fujifilm requests you stop using the wall charger immediately and instead charge your camera via USB before emailing or calling Fujifilm customer service. Customer service can be reached via email at and via phone at (833) 613-1200. If it’s confirmed your plug could be affected, Fujifilm will send out a free replacement wall plug and adapter unit.

DJI appears close to unveiling the Mini 4 Pro, the successor to the Mini 3 Pro that launched in May last year.

First, as a reminder, DJI’s smallest and lightest “Pro” drone tips the scales at just 249 grams, a carefully considered move as it’s just 1 gram below the drone weight category that involves having to register it with the authorities. Sure, that’s no great hardship for most folks, but the fewer hoops you have to jump through to get your bird in the sky, the better.

GoPro: Introducing HERO12 Black | Everything You Need to Know

GoPro is back with the latest iteration of its popular action camera. The new GoPro Hero 12 Black is the kind of solid piece of kit we’ve come to expect from a company that’s been in the game for years. That’s actually created a bit of a problem for GoPro, with many customers happy to hang onto their current model rather than upgrade. So it'll be hoping the latest version will be attractive enough to prompt a wave of purchases among current owners, while at the same time attracting a bunch of first-time buyers, too.

How to hide photos on your Android phone or tablet
Google Photos

While modern smartphones are quite secure as long as they remain locked with a passcode or biometrics like a fingerprint, by default those features only protect the front door. If someone picks up your phone while it's unlocked, there aren't typically any barriers that will keep them out of exploring everything from your contacts and emails to your photos.

This can be particularly challenging when it comes to photos, since those are the things we like to show off the most from our phones. We've likely all had those moments when we want to show a friend or co-worker a funny cat meme, so we hand over our phone and trust that they won't swipe right and see the photo of the hairy mole that we sent to our doctor that morning.
