I couldn’t find a weatherproof enclosure for a USB power bank on the Internet, so I made my own
Modern action cameras are a useful tool for a photographer in that they are compact, robust and weather resistant. However, adventurous users quickly find that battery life isn’t their strongest point. For longer recording durations, such as time-lapse photography, a mains supply or USB battery pack is needed. Connecting an external power supply typically means opening a sealing door which nullifies the camera’s weather resistance.
This article explains the commercial solutions for using a power supply outdoors and also shows step-by-step how to make a custom-fitting water-resistant connector. Additionally, it shows how to make a weather-resistant USB battery pack housing to provide flexibility for powering an action camera.

SkyeBrowse lets you make 3D models with your DJI drone videos in minutes
As 3D printers have become more popular over the last few years, so has the idea of 3D scanning. No longer in the realm of only high-end games companies and movie studios, everybody has relatively easy access to create 3D scans of the real world these days. You can even do it with your smartphone and free software. But it’s still a fairly laborious task that typically takes a long time to process.
SkyeBrowse seems to have solved this time sink problem, though, with an iOS app that processes 90-second videos from DJI and Autel drones into high-resolution 3D models. It uses a patented new technology called videogrammetry – which it says is different from the more traditional photogrammetry many of us have been using for years.
The Dark Room photo project mixes life-size models with 1:6 scale DIY props
I was listening to my favourite band Sentenced and their album “The Cold White Light”. While listening I started thinking “Should I make images from the songs in my favourite album?”. Well, that was the original plan in February 2020. Now ideas have gone on their way and I have over forty sketches in my sketchbook. I have picked some pieces from other bands too like Queen, Metallica, Mötorhead, Stam1na…
When ideas started to circulate I ended up pretty quickly in the idea that all the images would have the same environment. Some kind of room or a cell with a dark and depressing feel. It was clear from the beginning that images would also have some surreal and dreamlike elements. It is a collection of images of what a dark mind might look like from the inside.

So, instead of models, stars of Vogue’s July cover are three essential workers: an overground train driver, a supermarket assistant, and a midwife.
Sony RX100 VII sensor isn’t as good as previous generation models, DxO mark says
The Sony RX100 VII is the latest in Sony’s line of popular RX100 compact cameras. DxOMark recently posted their review of the RX100 VII’s sensor in Sony’s latest iteration and found it to be a little lacking compared to previous generations.
Released in July 2019, the RX100 VII is an update to the RX100 VI. It was a welcome update, particularly for vloggers thanks to the addition of the microphone socket. It features the same 24-200mm equivalent lens introduced in the RX100 VI, but it also came with a new stacked BSI CMOS sensor, which DxOMark says doesn’t stand up to the earlier model.
