In a world where capturing the “perfect moment” has become an obsession, wildlife is paying the price. A heartbreaking incident recently occurred in Rhossili, Swansea, a headland home to free-grazing ponies. According to farmers, selfie-taking tourists and drone users forced a baby pony off a cliff, leading to its tragic death.
OpenAI has introduced exciting new voice and image features in ChatGPT. The AI tool can now “see” your photos and understand what you’re talking about, which is as impressive as it is scary. These updates are a part of ChatGPT’s “new, more intuitive type of interface,” so let’s dive right in and see what it’s all about.
DJI has announced the hotly anticipated DJI Mini 4 Pro (buy here). Leaks earlier in the month told us it was on the way and would have all-around obstacle avoidance, 4K 100fps video and waypoint control.
Well, it’s got all that and more, including 4K 60fps HDR video as well as 10-bit D-Log M, 48-megapixel raw stills, 4K 60fps vertical shooting, and a 20km range – but that’s way beyond visual line of sight rules!
Kodak was once one of the biggest names in photography. For decades, it stood head and shoulders above not only its competitors but every other brand in the photography industry. Their film was used by everybody, from seasoned professionals to those shooting family snapshots.
Then digital came, and Kodak seemed to just sort of disappear from our collective consciousness. Kodak literally invented the digital camera. So, what went wrong? Let’s find out, as James Warner of Snappiness tells the story.
Two tourists recently got into a fight at Rio de Janeiro’s famous photo spot, Pedra do Telégrafo. The incident was captured on video, showing that the two men got into a fight while trying to take photos at the popular rock. Since there’s a 300m (almost 1,000 ft) abyss below the spot, the two men nearly escaped a tragedy!
I’ve just spent two days with the new iPhone 15 Pro Max, the latest and greatest top-of-the-line new device from Apple. It’s the best iPhone camera ever, but read this to save some growing pains.
It isn’t a stretch to say this is the best camera Apple has produced, with more choices (ultra-wide angle to real telephoto) better low-light performance, image quality and overall usability than prior models. (Whether you want to spring $1,000 and up for yet another phone is up to you, and of course, you may not care for, nor need the new features.)
Blackmagic wants to turn your iPhone into a cinema camera with its new Blackmagic Camera app. Well, sort of. It’s not going to turn your iPhone into an URSA12K, but it does provide you with the same interface and features.
It’s not just another camera app, though. It also syncs up with Blackmagic Cloud. This allows you to easily mix smartphone footage in your projects. And it does it all automatically, over WiFi. We stopped by the Blackmagic stand at IBC 2023 to find out more.
Who would’ve thought that a retro-styled, full-frame mirrorless camera that people have been begging for over the last few years would be popular? Apparently, it’s not Nikon.
It seemed like everyone was offering 32-bit float recording, but the leader of the industry, Sennheiser. But the wait was worth it, and now they have released the EW-DP SKP plug-on transmitter unit that not only offers 32-bit float recording but records a full 134 dB input to fill this range.
If you were to liken exploring abandoned places to treasure hunting, Italy might be one of the most intriguing places to check out.
