Cameras need lenses to work, right? Electrical and computer engineers at the University of Utah have developed a camera that doesn’t need a lens. Instead, just like you or me, it sees the world through a window. And this technology could have lots of different applications in the future.
I’m not even 18 years old and I’m so far away from my parents. It’s the first time that I’ve gone this far. I’m two-thousand kilometres away from home, in Barcelona. I’m wandering the streets with a couple of friends, unable to concentrate on them and our conversation because I’m completely enchanted by everything I see. It feels like this huge, beautiful city is hugging me, while I smile at everyone and everything: people, buildings, trees, and cars. Everything looks so much better than it does back home. Everything seems idyllic, seems just right.
I have recently acquired my first digital camera. And when I manage to snap out of the delirium, I take photos of pretty much everything – because everything seems worth capturing, everything seems freakin’ amazing!
There is something all-newcomer photographers tend to do, they either dream of camera gear or buy a lot of it. When I started in photography I went through the same thing. I thought that I needed all the lenses that my idols used, I believed I needed the biggest megapixel camera, with all the film features just in case a potential client wanted video. But over time with age came wisdom.
The amateur compensates with the many, where the master relies on the few. One camera, one lens, one light, focusing on the moment. Capturing what matters instead of focusing on the gear, giving attention to the photograph being framed.
Camera+ is one of my favourite iOS apps. It’s almost certainly the one I’ve used the most during the time that I owned iPhones. Whenever I got a new one, it was the first thing I’d install to replace the stock camera app that comes with iOS. It offers a level of control that the native app just can’t (or at least, doesn’t) offer while still offering “easy mode” options for when you want a quick snap.
Launched almost 8 years ago, it’s become one of the most popular 3rd party camera apps out there for iOS. Now they’ve launched a completely new and overhauled Camera+ 2. It’s been “reimagined and rewritten from the ground up” to help optimise efficiency and add new features. It offers improved dual camera support, built-in raw & depth editing, new sharing options and a “Smile Mode”.
A man from East Jordan, Michigan has recently captured a photo that shows an angel hovering above his truck. Well, at least he claims it’s an angel. The photo went viral and brought him lots of attention and interviews for different publications. But of course, not everyone is convinced that the photo truly is a miracle. Some would say that it’s nothing but a moth.
“Snapchat is a camera.” Yeah, you’ve read it well. In its very first TV commercial, it seems that Snapchat wants to rebrand as “a new kind of camera.” Would you ever call it that way? How can a silly app be a camera?
(In the World of Photography, there are many stories, some told tongue-in-cheek. This is one of them. There is a lesson at the end. Enjoy.)
Hello. I am a professional photographer and I am returning my Good Camera today. You know, the one that takes the Good Pictures. Yeah, it’s going back.
I saved my money to buy it. I almost did a GoFundMe campaign, but thought I’d better save the GoFundMe for the future, when I will undoubtedly do something silly, like drop the Good Camera and have to replace a lens or something. I figure GoFundMe is way cheaper than actually buying insurance and people love to help.
A few days ago, a group of children was cleaning up the beach in Taiwan when they found an unusual “rock” covered in barnacles and shells. Upon a closer look, the kids and their teacher Park Lee realized that they’d actually found a camera – and it was still working inside its underwater case. They decided to try and track down the owner, so they posted some photos on Facebook. After only one day they found a girl who had lost this camera more than two years ago!
When ordering stuff online from huge retailers, mistakes can happen. But a $6,000 mistake is something that might get one really upset, especially if it happens twice. According to YouTuber chaseontwowheels, this is excatly what happened to him.
He allegedly ordered a $6,000 Canon 1DX Mark II from Amazon. In the video he shares, he unpacks the box, and instead of the camera – there is a collection of rocks. To make things worse, the package he received after complaining also didn’t contain the camera, but he says he got a box of bricks instead. What were the odds?
