There’s a new Face ID hack, but you have nothing to worry about

There’s a new Face ID hack, but you have nothing to worry about Researchers at the Black Hat security conference this week highlighted an interesting, and somewhat impractical, way to fool Apple's Face ID. Originally introduced with the iPhone X, Face ID does an impressive job of only allowing authorized users to access a particular device. All the same, Face ID isn't entirely fool-proof. Over the past few years, we've seen a few demonstrations which illustrate how Face ID can sometimes be fooled by twins or even siblings who bear a close resemblance. There have even been stories of researchers using 3D-printed plaster masks to fool the software.

Fujifilm has unveiled the entry - level X - A 7 with some key new features that make it a nice upgrade over its predecessor, the X - A 5. That gives it much faster autofocus speeds and quick face detection , though burst shooting speeds remain at 6 fps. For video , the X - A 7 can now handle 4 K at 30 fps

Fujifilm has unveiled the entry-level X-A7 with some key new features that make it a nice upgrade over its predecessor, the X-A5. It packs Fujifilm's latest 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor and has 8.5 times as many phase-detect pixels as its previous entry-level model, the X-A5, for starters. That gives it much faster autofocus speeds and quick face detection, though burst shooting speeds remain at 6 fps.

For video, the X-A7 can now handle 4K at 30 fps rather than being hobbled at 15fps like the last model, and Fujifilm said it has less rolling shutter, too (a possible jab at Sony). 1080p shooting speeds are limited to 60 fps, however. The ISO range runs from 100-12,800, though it can be expanded to ISO 25,600.

Then there is video - 4 K 10 -bit 60fps capture in camera, and 4:2:2 output via the HDMI. Throw in continuous face and eye detection when shooting video and this could be the camera that really launches Fujifilm in to the mirrorless video arena. And as soon as it is available on 20th September

With a small, attractive rangefinder body that weighs just 455 grams with a lens attached, the X-A7 will be easy to pack around. And while the X-A5 had a pop-up screen for selfies, the X-A7 has a fully-articulating touch display, making more useful not just for vlogging and selfies, but other types of shooting as well.

The screen is also the primary way to adjust settings for the camera, as the rear of the camera doesn't have many physical controls. By touching, tapping or swiping, you can change screen brightness, film simulation, and other effects.

Other features include Fujifilm's "Bright Mode" scene recognition tech, which applies HDR and other tricks to create bright, vivid images without the need for any fiddling. This is the kind of automatic mode that smartphone shooters are used to, so Fujifilm clearly thought this would be an important feature for novices who might buy an entry-level camera.

The Fujifilm X-A7 will cost $700 with a Fujinon XC 15-45mm f/3.5-5.6 OIZ PZ kit lens when it arrives in the US on October 24th. If you're looking to stand out a bit from the crowd, it comes with mint green and "camel" color options, along with the usual silver and dark silver. You'll also be able to get it in "navy" in some regions.

Fujifilm has officially unveiled the X-Pro3, the latest in its esoteric X-Pro lineup aimed at street photographers and photojournalists. Teased last month, it has a number of eccentric features, including a 3.5-inch, 1.65-million dot rear display that you can't even see without flipping down. Otherwise, it only shows the shutter speed, aperture and other basic information, or the film simulation if you're using one. The idea is to free theThe idea is to free the photographer from distractions and help them "stay in the moment," as Fujifilm puts it.
