It should be no secret to any of you who have been following the photography industry over the last few years that Kodak has been looking to take advantage of a renewed public interest in analog technologies like film photography — the analog renaissance, as their CEO Jeff Clarke calls it. Well, in another move to capitalize on and promote this renaissance, Kodak has announced the launch of their new print magazine, Kodachrome Magazine.

The magazine, despite the clear brand association in the title, is not a “me, me, me, look at me” attempt the company says, noting that it is “about so much more than Kodak — be it writing, sculpture, music, graphics, or all manner of delights in between.” In its press release, the company notes that each issue of the new Kodachrome Magazine will feature stories and conversation from around the world, focusing on creation, craft, and inspiration.

The first issue, which Kodak is saying will be a limited run, went on sale at $20 a copy, and is currently back-ordered, and it is unclear if the stock will be replenished. This first issue features 76 pages of content that encompasses photographers and illustrators, as well as stories on topics like the booming independent magazine culture and how music-gig posters bring out graphic designers’ creative instincts.

It is unclear how often the company plans on releasing new issues of the magazine, and what its future plans for it are. But given the response so far, and the success of the initial print run, it would seem that Kodak has struck a chord with its target demographic. If you would like to learn more about Kodachrome Magazine, whether to check on the stock status of the first issue or future issues, you can get all of the available info over on the Kodak store.

DJI Mini Pro 4 leak appears to reveal the drone’s specs
A retail box apparently showing DJI's upcoming Mini Pro 4 drone.

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.
