Does your favorite restaurant not have pictures on their Uber Eats page? You might want to recheck it, as Uber Eats started to fill missing images with AI-generated ones. Automatically. Without checking their results. As you can expect, the results are between slightly uncanny and downright hilarious.
If you enjoy taking film photos (and want to try pinhole photography), you know the satisfaction you get from a film photo that you just don’t feel when you use digital. Just imagine seeing the first photo you get out of a camera you designed and built yourself!
The process of designing and building a camera may seem daunting, but with a bit of patience, the help of this guide, and some further reading, you’ll be able to do it. You can use this information to figure out what you want to build, gather some simple materials and tools, and build it!
In a groundbreaking study, researchers in Japan have reconstructed images from human brain activity using artificial intelligence. While this isn’t the first study of this kind, it is the first that managed to reconstruct images without the subject looking at them. In other words – only their thought was enough, and AI achieved an astonishing accuracy of over 75%!
This is an interesting and very useful-looking tool. It’s called the Jupio x Pr1me Gear Tri-Charge, and it’s a triple battery charger for Nikon, Canon and Sony mirrorless cameras. But it’s not just a charger. It’s also memory card storage, and it can even act as a power bank.
I’m amazed it’s taken somebody this long to make a camera battery charger like this. When you consider that drones and action cameras have had chargers like these for years, why didn’t we have these sooner?
Travel photography blog Capture the Atlas has published the winners of the contest every aurora enthusiast loves: The Northern Lights Photographer of the Year.

7Artisans’ upcoming lens is their most exciting product in, well, ever. The 7Artisans 24-96mm T/2.9 is an impressively fast 4X zoom lens for super 35 image sensors. If you want a cinema lens and don’t feel like paying a fortune for a cinema lens from Canon, this lens is an exciting option.
The 7Artisans 24-96mm T/2.9 is a Super 35 lens and the company’s first zoom lens. The lens was teased last month on social media as a mysterious 4X series yet to be announced. It is yet unclear if 7Artisans are planning more cinema zoom lenses in this “series”.
Microphone manufacturer Rode has announced a new acquisition. It’s the American pro audio company Mackie. Mackie’s acquisition adds a lot of new products to the catalogue of Freedman Electronics – the company that owns Rode.
Mackie does make a handful of microphones, but they’re primarily known for their live audio and mixing gear. Could we see some Mackie hardware and designs in upcoming Rode products?
The new firmware update will add 12-bit raw output over HDMI. It will also provide support for both the Atomos Ninja series for ProRes RAW and Blackmagic Design Video Assist models for BRAW recording.
When 3D printers first started to become a thing, they were hailed as the future of manufacturing. We’d be able to make anything we want. The reality is that most 3D printer owners are making all kinds of weird stuff. But not Nick Sherlock!
We’ve featured Nick here before, but now he’s back with a new stereoscopic macro lens for Sony E. Yes, that’s right, it lets you shoot 3D macro images. It utilises a pair of camera bodies, but it’s a very strange-looking setup!
OBSBOT managed to fit a lot into their new streaming camera, the OBSBOT Tail Air ($499). 4k streaming/recording, AI tracking, large sensor pixels, gesture controls, and so much more. All while being the size of a soda can. After we met them at IBC, we are giving the Tail Air the full run-through. Yes, it’s also a PTZ cam.
