Alternative text included with uploaded images enables BVI users to learn about the content using a screen reader, which reads the text describing what the image presents.

Qualcomm has introduced its new Snapdragon 870 5G mobile platform, a system-on-a-chip (SoC) that’s essentially a refreshed version of its Snapdragon 865+ chipset. This new SoC is made for manufacturers who want to release high-end phones this year without using the more expensive Snapdragon 888 SoC, which was revealed last week.

The biggest change with the Snapdragon 870 5G over the 865 models is its faster speed at 3.2GHz versus the 865’s 2.84GHz and the 865 Plus’s 3.1GHz. The new model packs the company’s Kyro 585 CPU and Adreno 650 GPU, as well as ‘truly global’ 5G

Recently, I kicked off a new series of articles comparing the software provided by camera manufacturers with one of their most popular third-party alternatives, pitting Canon Digital Photo Professional head-to-head against Adobe Camera Raw.

There’s a bit more to discuss this time around, as Nikon offers a choice of two different raw processing apps for free — the somewhat inconsistently-named ViewNX-i and Capture

Fujifilm X-T4 vs X-S10

Introduction

The Fujifilm X-T4 sits at the top of the company’s X series, and is probably our favorite APS-C camera right now. We found its in-body stabilization, improved AF tracking and larger battery give significant advantages over the already very good X-T3, especially if you shoot video.

But the company’s mid-range X-S10 brings in-body stabilization to a much more accessible price point and shares a lot of the X-T4’s features and capabilities. Does the more affordable camera provide everything you need or is it worth the extra money for the flagship model?

We’ll take a look at the factors you
