Panasonic launches video-focused live-event box camera

Panasonic has announced a new Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera designed for live event streaming, vlogging, mounting to drones and more. The box-shaped Lumix DC-BGH1 doesn’t have a viewfinder or rear display panel, but is compatible with an extensive lens lineup and capable of Cinema 4K and 10-bit video recording.

The BGH1’s light and durable aluminum and magnesium alloy body is home to a 10.2-megapixel Live MOS sensor and Venus image processing engine combination, making it a similar proposition to the Lumix GH5S. Indeed it also features the Dual Native ISO technology found in that camera, which chooses between two separate ISO circuits for optimal low noise output. Light sensitivity tops out at ISO51,200.

Eye, face and body detection of human subjects gets joined by head detection, with “advanced deep learning technology” able to track fast-moving animals too.

There’s no mention of stills photography for the BGH1 at all, with

Dr. Zenovia Skincare, A Hormonal Dermatology Line Featuring Medical-Grade Technology, Launches At Sephora

Topix has been a long-time partner of the line’s namesake developer, Dr. Zenovia, a board-certified dermatologist and founder of ZENA Medical in Newport Beach, California. A global pioneer in the field of Hormonal Dermatology, Dr. Zenovia was inspired to formulate the first line designed to combat hormonally imbalanced skin after several years of closely examining thousands of women of all skin types, their hormonal fluctuations and the impact of these fluctuations and estrogen deficiencies on skin health. Her breakthrough studies ultimately led to the creation of the proprietary REG-ulate360 Complex™, the first-ever dermatologist-developed skincare technology to help holistically address the appearance of hormone-impacted skin.

Modi launches property card scheme to aid rural households

MUMBAI (Reuters) – Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a property card scheme on Sunday that he vowed would provide clarity of property rights in villages and enable farmers to use their property as collateral for loans from financial institutions.

Two-thirds of India’s population lives in rural areas, where few possess proper land records and property disputes are common.

“This is a historic effort towards rural transformation,” Modi said in a webcast speech while launching the programme.

The government plans to use drone technology to map land parcels in rural areas and cover some 620,000 villages over the next four years, Modi said.

“Despite owning houses, people were facing multiple problems while borrowing from banks. These people can now borrow very easily from banks after showing property cards issued under ownership scheme,” Modi said.

An initial batch of 100,000 people from over 750 villages across six states will begin to receive
