In anticipation of their impending release, Nikon have now released the other half of this equation in the form of an Android app, with an iOS version expected to arrive during the summer.
Strip lights have become quite popular over the last couple of years, and we’ve seen numerous options released compatible with both speedlights, as well for continuous light.
The StrobiStrip from Strobius presents something unique, not seen in these types of light modifiers before. As well as being extremely thin, and usable with pretty much every speedlight ever made, the StrobiStrip is also collapsible, with the StrobiStrip 50 breaking down into a small pouch not much bigger than your average 105mm lens.
Russian manufacturer KMZ has a long history in the photographic world, having produced cameras, lenses and enlargers under the Zenit brand since 1952.
Having been relatively quiet for a number of years, they’re now making a big comeback with the announcement of three very interesting new manual focus lenses; 85mm f/1.2, 50mm f/1.2 and 50mm f/0.95.
Well, this sure is a surprise announcement, at least for me. Blackmagic Design have today announced their 3G-SDI Arduino Shield, allowing you to control your Blackmagic cameras from your own Arduino based DIY projects.
For those who’ve never come across the Arduino before, see here, here, here, here and here. I’ll wait, but there’s plenty more about it here on DIYP if you require some further reading. Basically, they’re a bit like a Raspberry Pi, but simpler and geared more towards hardware connectivity and rapid prototyping, than software development.
Atomos have announced at NAB2016 that they are allowing owners of Atomos recorders to update their firmware to all of their devices except the Ninja 2, giving everybody the ability to record HDR video absolutely free.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. HDR. It’s usually pretty hideous, overdone, ugly, etc., but when it comes to video, the look and purpose of HDR isn’t what we typically see in the world of stills photography.
It’s a fact of life these days for photographers that our work may be stolen if we post it online. No matter what level of photography we’re at, if you post enough images to the web, it’s simply become an inevitable consequence of sharing out work with the masses.
Sometimes it’s an honest mistake, somebody loves your image, likes it enough to share it, and just doesn’t about copyright or crediting the auther. Other times, the infractions are a little more serious, and the intent becomes obvious, as Australian photographer Steve Arklay discovered.
There’s no way around it, our world is dominated by electronic devices. In these days of the super computers in our pockets we call cellphones, as well as tablets, smart watches and the countless other gadgets which make up the Internet of Things, one mother is taking things back to basics.
In an ongoing project, New Zealand photographer Niki Boon has been documenting the almost technology-free lives of her four children in a stunning black and white photography series, Childhood in the Raw.
Recently posted to Reddit, is Mathieu Stern’s intriguing short film project “Alone in Paris“. While Mathieu promises that a Behind The Scenes video is coming in a week or so, it’s always fun to speculate how things like this can be created.
Some of the theories have already been shot down over on the Reddit post as the actual techniques used in this instance, but many of them are quite valid, and we’re going to have a quick look at a couple of them here.
With influences ranging from The Avengers and X-Men to Star Wars and The Martian, French photographer Sofiane Samial (AKA Samsofy) spends his days making amazing Lego photography in a project titled Legography.
Intriqued by Samsofy’s work, DIYP reached out to get some more insight into this project, discussing his inspirations, and how he creates them.
Star trails have become a very popular photography subject, especially with the high ISO performance offered by some cameras over the last few years, but few will have the opportunity of creating them from such unimpeded views as the International Space Station.
Don Pettit is one of those few, stacking short exposures of the stars to produce some amazing star trail images, which also include the earth.
