      Huawei again caught passing DSLR photos as being shot from its own smartphones
      by Rajesh Pandey



      Back in 2018, Huawei was caught passing off some photos taken from its mid-range Nova 3 when they were actually shot using a DSLR. The company had been caught using similar unethical tactics before as well with its P30 series. Fast forward to a couple of years later and Huawei has again been caught doing the same thing.

      Huawei recently ran a photography contest on China's Weibo platform and shared some of the photos submitted to it with the "taken with Huawei smartphones" tagline in a video. However, it was soon discovered that some of the photos select from the competition were taken with DLSRs. The issue was first discovered by Jamie-hua after he thought the photos shared in the video from Huawei looked familiar and eventually he found one of the photos on 500x which was taken from a $3,000 Nikon D850 DSLR and not a Huawei smartphone.

      The image in question/ Credit: Su Tie After being called out, Huawei issued an apology saying it was an "oversight" by the editor who "wrongly marked" the photos. The company has since then already updated the original video to remove mention of the photos being taken from a Huawei smartphone. The company claimed that the competition rules did not prohibit users from posting photos taken from other non-Huawei devices.

      Huawei smartphones are known to have impressive cameras, so it's unclear why this phenomenon of passing DSLR photos as ones being shot from its phones keep occurring.

      by Usman Khan Lodhi

      Image credit: Edgar Varjapetyanvia (Wallpapers Wide) In an attempt to keep its customers "inspired, engaged and growing," Nikon USA has made its entire curriculum of online photography classes free of cost this month (via The Verge). Until the end of April, all 10 classes, which cost between $15 and $50 each, can be streamed for free. The company wrote on its website:

      The ten classes, which are taught by professional photographers and often Nikon ambassadors, range in length from 15 minutes to over an hour. Several of these classes cover Nikon-related products while others teach the basic know-how of photography. Even if you are not a Nikon camera owner, you still might learn something from these classes.

      If you're interested in streaming for the courses, you should visit Nikon's official website. After signing up using your name and email address, you will be able to view the classes. There is also an option to opt-out of receiving marketing emails.

      From the Forums: Official Neowin photography contest for October
      by Christopher White

      Did you know Neowin has a photography forum or that we used to have a monthly photography contest? Well, we do, and we did, and while the forum has always been there, we want to continue the monthly photography contest to our loyal (and new) readers!

      Although the August contest generated a lot of interest, it resulted in only three submissions. Long time reader, warwagon, won the prize with the above photograph of an Xbox controller with interesting lighting from lamps in his room. Check out the poll results thread to see his explanation of how he created the picture.

      The number one thing to keep in mind is that the contest should be used as motivation to go out and use your camera, not to go through old photos that you've taken. In the past, we've had people submit old photos, so be sure the photo you submit was taken this month! The main rules to keep in mind are:

      Photos must be taken in the time frame of the theme (i.e.: October) Submission must be on a website that conserves EXIF data Spam will be deleted as per the forum rules, such as photos for sale The rest of the forum rules still apply One picture per theme Neowin claims absolutely NO ownership of your images. If you win, you'll make the front page though! The theme for the month of October is "Food" and can be interpreted any way you want (this is art!). So go out into the world (or stay in your house), take some photos, and post the best one on the forum for everyone to vote on at the end of October! While there's no big prize this month, the winner gets to choose the theme for the next month's contest! Remember: Entries are made in the FORUMS (see October Contest post link) and not in the comments here, although we'd love to hear your thoughts on the contest!

      You can win an Elsweyr Xbox One X, a year of Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold via Twitter
      by Florin Bodnarescu

      Game deals and contests are reasonably frequent these days, and adding one more to the pile is Xbox Game Pass via Twitter.

      To celebrate the upcoming Elsweyr expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, as well as the five year anniversary of the MMORPG, folks with a Twitter account can enter to win an Xbox One X with a themed paintjob, plus a year of Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold.

      For those not familiar, Elsweyr is the third expansion to ESO, following 2017's Morrowind and 2018's Summerset. It will introduce the Necromancer class to the game, and will let players explore Tamriel's Elsweyr region, the homeland of the Khajit. It's part of the year-long Season of the Dragon storyline and will be available on all platforms on June 4, with folks on PC or on a Mac being able to partake in the early access period starting May 20.

      As far as the contest is concerned, it runs between Sunday, April 28 at 12:01 AM PT and Sunday, May 5 at 11:59 PM PT. It's unfortunately only open to folks who are legal residents of the 50 United States (including the District of Columbia), or Canada (excluding Quebec) that are 14 or older. Minors, of course, need the consent of a legal guardian. You can see the full set of rules here.
