GoPro can’t catch a break. A week ago company shares dropped to an all-time low after announcing they would be laying off 7% of their workforce after a slump in sales. Then, earlier this week, we shared news that investors have filed a lawsuit against GoPro for sharing misleading numbers and projections, causing massive losses for investors across the globe.
Now, it’s been revealed that action cam manufacturer Contour has filed a lawsuit against GoPro for patent infringement. [Read more…]
2015 was a good year for Canon. Not only did it release the record-breaking 50MP 5Ds and 5Ds R DSLR cameras, it also broke its own record for the highest number of patents the company was granted in one year.
Canon also maintained its top spot among Japanese companies, and has marked its 30th consecutive year as a top five U.S. patent holder.
The other way could be to take it on the light side and make it a fun family project. COOPH chose option two and they are letting us in on several of the techniques they used. Some ideas are pretty clever, some are as simple as “use an under water camera” and some are just the right mix of photography, mess and fun. (And some use the term Elements pretty loosely)
Check out the ideas they came up with after the jump.
I’d like to think that as I age I get wiser. I sure hope so because I want to be a better person every day! Lately I’ve been pondering about Principles. For most of my life I’ve been chasing after the 1-2-3 approach only to realize that things so complex, I would have been better off knowing the principles of life rather than going in without any guiding principle.
Since I am a photographer, I’ve compiled a few principles that I’ve discovered that are beneficial for photographers, I hold them as true because they’ve always been true for me and I am sure will be for you too!

Will Sutton, well known for his wicked parkour skills, is quite possibly the only person capable of making selfie sticks cool.
Using a GoPro and a selfie stick, the London-based professional free runner, created this action-filled point-of-view “selfie” video while showing off what he can do.
Have a seat before watching this; Sutton’s incredible talent could make you dizzy.
Irresponsible and ill-intentioned drone operators continue to pose safety and security hazards, and researchers continue to develop inventive ways of taking out the rogue devices.
The Drone Catcher is not the first anti-drone solution nor the first anti-drone drone, but it’s definitely the closest one to possessing superhero capabilities.
Developed by Michigan Tech’s HIRo Lab (Human-Interactive Robotics), the Drone Catcher fires a net at other drones and catches them mid-air.
What do you do when you have Phantom cameras capable of capturing 4K video at upwards of 1,000 and 2,500 frames per second? Why, you use them to film even the most unusual and mundane things to show how life slowed down can make for beautiful imagery.
That’s exactly what The Slow Mo Guys Dan Gruchy and Gavin Free do. And for their latest video, they show what it looks like when you spin a drill bit at full speed while a rainbow gradient of paint is attached. As you can imagine, the results are incredible. [Read more…]
Much like the Blue Angels of the United State’s Navy and Marine Corps, the Royal Air Force’s (RAF) Red Arrows is an acrobatic aircraft team that wows audiences across the UK with their impressive maneuvers and daredevil antics.
