We’ve featured plenty of stunning photo recreations so far. But this time, I’ve stumbled upon one such project that will make your day better. It’s about a cute toddler recreating model photos of his uncle. It all started as a family jok and turned into a project that’s cute and hilarious at the same time.
Photography has changed immensely over the years, and in the 21st century, the change seems to be faster than ever before. The team behind COOPH has created an interesting video where they suggest ten predictions about the future of photography. With the development this fast and versatile, we can probably expect a lot of dramatic changes in both near and far future.
When Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM Lens was first introduced, the announced price was $2,198. However, it was listed on Amazon for $500 less, and many users preordered it on that price. If you are among them, there’s good news for you – Amazon is honoring the $500 price mistake. Those who ordered the lens for $1,698 will actually get the lens instead of getting order cancellation.
This whole “computational photography” thing always felt a little bit weird. But it also intrigued me. The idea that a computer can realistically create things that weren’t actually shown in the original shot is pretty amazing. Maybe it was seeing this scene in Blade Runner as a kid that did it for me. It was pure fantasy back then, but we’re getting there.
A new “computational zoom” technology developed by researchers at Nvidia and UCSB brings us a step closer to Deckard’s reality. Essentially it allows the photographer to change the focal length and perspective of an image in post, but this description barely does it justice. It actually allows you to simulate multiple focal lengths simultaneously. Here, watch this video, and it’ll all make sense.
Last year’s collaboration with Huawei to produce the dual-lens camera Huawei P9 Smartphone was met with mixed responses. Some said it was just a gimmick, while others thought it was the best thing to happen to mobile photography. Although its release was not without a little controversy. And then a little more. But I know a number of people who own a P9 and absolutely love it.
It seems Leica, or at least Leica Chairman, Andreas Kaufmann, isn’t quite as pleased with it. In an interview with CBNC, Kaufmann said that it was a “personal dream” to reinvent the smartphone. He wants a “true Leica phone”. He isn’t quite sure if it’s a reality for the company, but it is his personal dream.
Before you read the rest of the article, and it will be a long read, please allow me to share a few thoughts with you. Visiting the abandoned city of Pripyat and the disaster site of Chernobyl was an experience that I was looking forward to for a very long time.
While I was there I had many mixed feelings. On one hand I was having laughs with my friends and found everything ‘amazingly beautiful’ to shoot, while on the other hand I realized I was in and nearby the place where the world’s worst nuclear disaster happened. A place of sadness and death.
Sony shooters who prefer wide angle lenses, Sony has an exciting announcement for you. They are going wide and they have announced two new lenses for their E-Mount full frame cameras. One of them is Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM and the other is Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G.
They belong to the G Master series and they are designed to provide great sharpness and fine image quality. Both of them are fast, flexible and characterized by the constant aperture of f/2.8 and f/4. Let’s take a look at the details and see what you get with these lenses.
Instead of being the only option, film photography is a growing trend in the digital age. Carried by this tide, Lomography introduced another set of cameras for the film lovers – the Simple Use Film Camera. It’s a disposable camera, pre-loaded with 25mm film with 36 shots. You can take it everywhere, it fits inside your pocket, and returns you right back to the ‘90s.
Since I finally jumped on the bandwagon and bought a Sony mirrorless camera (even after I said I wouldn’t), I have been looking at options to use my existing Nikon (and Sigma with Nikon mount) lenses with a Sony mirrorless camera.
There are three main options available with the price ranging from under $100 to nearly $500 depending on the Sony mirrorless camera and Nikon lens combination you are trying to use.
In this article I will look at three Nikon F to Sony E adapter options to use Nikon lenses (F and G type) with Sony mirrorless cameras (APS-C cropped sensor and full frame).
