07/05/2011, Using DSLR to shoot and record videos these days are not unheard of. After all with the improvements in camera technology, certain DSLR’s will even allow you to shoot in HD quality. In fact here’s a little trivia – for those of you who follow the television series House, the last episode of season six, “Help Me”, was filmed using Canon EOS 5D Mark II cameras. Granted DSLR cameras won’t be […]
07/04/2011, Looking to do some espionage? Or perhaps you want a camera that can fit into your pocket without creating unnecessary bulge, or perhaps you’re just looking for a novelty item. Either way, Powershovel’s CLAP digital camera could be what you’re looking for.
06/29/2011, For those unfamiliar with light painting, it’s a photographic technique which uses long exposures and a light source, to “paint” the photo with light. The photo above is a great example as I am sure those who are unfamiliar with photography or light painting may have thought that “The Light Scythe” words that appear, are probably a result of photo editing. In reality it was created using a camera, the […]
06/28/2011, Cameras have evolved throughout the years, as most technology does. Externally however, camera design has not really been that radical, unlike the technology used inside the cameras, which have come a long way from its humble beginnings. If you take a look at DSLR and compact cameras, you realize that throughout the years, the changes have not really been radical, perhaps new colors, more curved edges, smaller and more compact. […]
06/24/2011, If you’re worried that Nanny Cams are starting to catch on, then how about getting your hands on this light switch instead? It looks like a typical light switch with the exception that it has a hidden camera built into the “logo”. It works by motion sensors, so when it detects movement it will either record a video or take a snap shot. It will then store the images and […]
06/23/2011, If you’ve taken a photo before then sometimes you would have ended up with shots that seem slightly tilted and this is completely normal because not all of us carry around tools to help measure whether the photo is level before snapping it. Of course some cameras come built in with grids and guides to help you take a more level image but there are times when you do mess […]
06/22/2011, Autofocus speed is key when you’re trying to take photos of things in motion, like a sporting event, wildlife or candid photos which is why sometimes camera users from both the point-and-shoot and DSLR camera spectrum find themselves frustrated and disappointed by photos that turn out to be blurry and out-of-focus, leaving them with only a memory of what just happened. The Lytro is a camera that seeks to change […]
06/20/2011, Camera and photography enthusiasts should be familiar with Olympus’s PEN series which is part of their micro-four-thirds line up and was supposed to bridge the gap between compact point and shoot styled cameras and the bigger and sometimes heavier DSLR cameras.
06/17/2011, The act of taking self-portraits in an art unto itself, some people have the gift to manage to get an entire group of 10 people into a photo while taking a self-portrait while others not so lucky end up with photographs that cut people out or are angled badly. Timers can sometimes help although it does make one look rather silly holding a pose for 5 seconds until the camera […]
06/17/2011, If you’ve ever wanted to shoot a 360 degree panoramic video with your iPhone then perhaps the Dot lens might just be the tool that you are looking for. Panoramic videos are a pretty cool concept – basically a video is recorded in 360 with only a portion of it showing up on the screen during playback but the cool part is that within that video, users can pan 360 […]
06/17/2011, UV lens filters were designed to reduce haziness in photos that is generated by the ultraviolet light, sometimes creating a “warmer” photo and in some instances protecting the lens from grubby fingers and accidental knocks. So ever wonder what 50 UV lenses would produce if you stacked them all together? Well the folks down at LensRental one day decided that they should take all the UV lens filters that they […]
06/15/2011, If the zoom on your iPad 2′s camera wasn’t enough then how about adding Brando’s iPad 2 Telescope to your iPad? It’s not exactly the most conspicuous looking addon but then again neither are most zoom lenses. For $26 what you are getting is a casing that attaches to the back of your iPad 2 which also features a slot where you would attach the telescopic lens which is positioned […]
05/25/2011, Leica has made a name for itself in the “photography enthusiast” circles, but many users still think of it as being “for pros” (or simply “too expensive”). The Leica V-Lux 30 has been designed to change this perception, at least a little. Instead of having an array of physical controls, it features a touch-screen that should be less intimidating to the novice. And although it does have a fair number […]
04/22/2011, Cell phone and smartphones these days tend to come with camera sensors that used to be the bomb in an actual digital camera say, maybe 5 to 8 years’ back. In fact, those who do not normally take photos start to do so with their handsets simply because it is so convenient to do so, and it is a surefire way to move on to professional grade digital photography in […]
