More goodies straight from the IR Lab! This time around, it's First Shots from the brand new Sony HX90V pocketable travel zoom camera.

In the six minute behind-the-scenes video, we get to follow along with Leong as he captures these military men and women in action. The video is filled with plenty of EOD gear, bomb-defusing robots and, of course, some explosions.

Merlin, available both online and as a native apps for both iOS and Android, is designed for amateur and intermediate bird photographers, who will inevitably come across the question, ‘What bird is this?’ at some point in their career.

Since Merlin differs in the browser from its mobile app, I’ll break down the two different implementations of the same…
