This 4 minute video packs a lot of information into a short space of time and I’m sure many will be able to pick up at least one new trick here, even if you’re been doing street photography for a while.
The Olympus Stylus Tough TG-Tracker (we’ll just call it TG-Tracker), is the newly announced action camera from Olympus looking to take on the likes of GoPro for market supremacy.
Boasting a whole host of neat features and super rugged durability right out of the box and without the need for a protective case, it looks like it may well hit its mark, too.
The Nikon N90s was not only my first DSLR but the first camera I owned that wasn’t just a disposable. I loved this camera, and even use it today, but I still lusted after the convenience of digital on an SLR. At the time, the 1.3MP Kodak NC2000 was one of those cameras I dreamed of, knowing I’d never get close to that $17K+ price tag.
In this video from The Camera Store we revisit this hybrid system and see how it stands up. Also featured is an interview with Rob Galbraith, a constant source of knowledge and inspiration to me in my early photography days, who made the switch from Canon to Nikon just to shoot this camera.
Every day we’re told about the “Secrets” of photography, how to shoot this, or that, how to be successful, how to get rich, and so on, and they usually have quite the price tag attached to them. The simple fact of the matter is that there are little, if any, secrets when it comes to photography, only myth and misconception.
Chase Jarvis, however, believes that there is one big secret that we can all benefit from, and I’m inclined to agree with him on this one.
We’ve seen some pretty interesting and amusing cinematic recreations in the past, but this is really cool, if a little bit legally dubious. Somebody has recreated the Game of Thrones intro sequence using timelapse footage shot by Nick Lariontsev of mould and fungi growing right before our eyes.
Obviously, it’s not a shot-for-shot recreation, as was the case with this recent recreation of the World of Warcraft movie trailer made from in-game assets, but you can almost imagine little people living out their tiny lives and waging miniature war over these microscopic landscapes.
BLIPS is an ultra portable super slim pair of lenses for your smartphone. One offers macro, letting you focus much closer than your phone’s standard lens will allow. The other is a micro lens, allowing you to get even closer, for some big magnification.
Mobile macro lenses are certainly nothing new, but this is the first we’ve seen with such a small and unobtrusive form factor, making it ideal to slip in your wallet and keep with you when you’re out and about.
Pretty much the only things that can be said for certain about the iPhone 7 are that it’ll eventually be announced (probably in September) and that it’ll be made by Apple.
If either of these cases are even close to real, however, the standard iPhone 7 will not possess dual cameras, an feature likely reserved for the iPhone 7 Plus.
Camera sliders are one of the easiest ways to add interesting motion to your timelapse and video sequences, but many of the commercial options are still extremely expensive.
Setting up a green screen to record footage of a subject that will be cut out and composited into another background has become commonplace these days. What is ultimately a pretty straightforward process, however, can be a difficult one to learn.
This video presented by Doug Guerra from B&H shows us some tips and techniques to help eliminate a lot of the common issues faced, such as colour spill, key fringing around our subject, and only partially removed backgrounds.
Aiming to do for your landscapes what PortraitPro does to your face, this new software boasts a range of features that let you to turn your mediocre snapshots into something that may or may not resemble anything that could actually exist in the real world.
