For the last few years, pretty much everyone in the camera industry has been searching for an answer to the rise of the smartphone. With tiny -- but arguably just about satisfactory -- cameras built into our phones, the average person on the street just doesn't see the need to buy a separate, standalone camera any more. Not only has that proven devastating for the compact camera market, but it's also had an effect on more sophisticated cameras. Connectivity has become a big talking point, with technologies like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and... <br /><a class="readMore" href='http://www.imaging-resource.com/news/2016/03/14/will-sonys-next-lens-style-camera-focus-on-selfie-shooters'>(read more)</a>
I like to keep the amount of kit I have to carry with me to a minimum. Every single pound counts when you’re scrambling up the side of a snowy mountain, and if you’ve ever had to pay excess baggage charges at the airport you will probably appreciate my ‘less is more’ mentality! So when I was looking for something compact but still substantial to use as a tether station, I realized I had everything I needed already. Yes, there are some cool options already out there but some of them are not cheap and they all involve additional kit/weight, which is what I’m trying to avoid. One piece of kit I always have on a shoot is my hard camera case. It keeps everything safe, makes a handy seat or table and generally makes my life easier. If there isn’t a team of people looking at the screen while
I recently spent some time using a DJI Phantom 3 Pro camera drone to make a 3D printed model of a statue of Jesus that’s by my house in Lima, Peru. The technology used to do this is called photogrammetry. Photogrammetry uses a series of photo images to computationally map a 3D model or space. The practice has been around for over a century, but has become especially popular over the course of the past decade with the proliferation of digital cameras and free or relatively inexpensive, but accurate, processing software. I used a Phantom 3 Pro and took around 110 photos from three different elevations while the drone was automatically flying in a circle around the statue. Here is one of the original images of the Jesus statue. Note the green horse pasture in the background.
The Flight Path
The statue is about 550m from my house. I flew
You’re not a photographer if you haven’t been somewhere (traveling light on a weekend excursion perhaps) when out for an evening stroll you spot it… the picture you thought you wouldn’t need to take this weekend: a long exposure. Your tripod is at home and the only stable base for which to rest your camera on and still somewhat frame your shot up properly is an uneven concrete wall.
The best composition you can muster includes an ugly lamppost and a garbage truck flanking either side of your frame. If only there were some sort of slim, easy to use and effortlessly carried, lifesaver of a tool, which could, in a pinch, get the job done. Well now there is and it’s called the Platypod Pro, a $49 mini-tripod plate that fits in your pocket and is designed to quickly adapt to uneven surfaces.
When I first saw the
The new Video Devices PIX-LR from Sound Devices, LLC is designed to solve all of those audio issues for $399.

Dogs are said to be man’s best friend. But they are often neglected and left to die by their owners in places around the world. On the streets of India, people treat them in the worst possible manner. Throwing stones, kicking and abusing them by all means. But there are some people who take care of these innocent creatures. They feed them and give shelter. This is a series on one such couple, Arun Pasare and his wife Suvarna Pasare, who have been taking care of street dogs for the past 9 years. Suvarna Pasare cooks the food for the dogs at their home. They have 5 dogs in total. All were strays earlier. All of them were rescued from the streets by Arun.
After shooting a wedding this weekend, Boston-based wedding photographer Francielle Santo had her car broken into. She lost not only $10,000 in camera gear, but all of her clients’ wedding photos as well. FOX25 reports that Santo is now making a public plea for the thieves to return just the memory card and photos. The photographer is offering a $1,000 reward for just the card. “It’s like my worst nightmare right now to not have her photos,” Santo tells FOX25. “Just please return that. Just the flash cards, that’s all I want.”
A solar eclipse video from above the cloudsLast week there as a total solar eclipse. For Alaska Airlines it was a unique opportunity to be at the right place at the right time. Their Flight #870 from Anchorage to Honolulu on March 8 was arranged so passengers could see the solar eclipse from 35000 feet. The precisely planned equation, based on calculations started one year ago, allowed for the creation of the video above by Mike Kentrianakis/American Astronomical Society.
Andy Warhol, Patty Smith and packfilmWhen in February Fujifilm announced that they had ceased production of their FP-100C packfilm, a whole community got together asking the company to change opinion. A
Granger then contacted his personal rep at Sony’s headquarters. While this call was more productive, the process took multiple calls and days because Sony doesn’t do its own repairs in Australia — repairs are outsourced. The whole process eventually took over a
