Well the 4k Hero is announced and it doesn’t disappoint. The video teaser they have is amazing. Things are getting crazy with micro video. We’re entering a whole new world and I’m thrilled to be a part of it.
First off this guys Monopod is insane, and second of all Hyperlapse is insane, let’s take a few minutes and enjoy the wonderful hyperlapse tutorial from the boys at Digital rev.
Are ordinary macro lens attachments for your smartphone not enough for you? Want to zoom in closer? 22-year-old mechanical engineer Thomas Larson has just the lens for you. It’s called the Micro Phone Lens, and is a tiny little attachment that instantly lets you focus on and capture very small subjects.
Larson, a Seattle-based graduate of the University of Washington, says he has been working on this lens for over a year now.
The creator is currently raising funds on Kickstarter in order to launch this lens. The campaign has already blown past its goal of $5,000 — at the time of this post, over 1,600 backers have pledged nearly $30,000 to the project. A donation of $15 will preorder you a Micro Phone Lens, which is set to land in September or October 2013.
The A3000 will be able to handle all of Sony’s E-Mount lenses, of which there are now three more given Sony’s other announcement of the night.
“The new a3000 represents the ultimate combination of performance and value in an interchangeable lens camera,” says director of the interchangeable lens camera business group at Sony Mike Kahn via press release. “With a familiar, comfortable shooting design, impressive imaging capabilities and an outstanding price, it’s the ideal choice for customers looking to experience the vast benefits of large sensor, interchangeable lens imaging for the very first time.”
Other notable features packed inside the A3000 include the ability to shoot 1080/24p or 1080/60i video, as well as 15 different Picture Effect settings, Auto Object Framing, Auto HDR, Sweep Panorama and more software-based features that will help those users who maybe won’t spend as much time in the standard P, A, S or M modes.
Check out this crazy wearable clip camera that can shoot 720P videos and take 5MP photos! This thing is ridiculously small. The trend seems to be, create a small camera, and clip it to shit, thanks GoPro.
This camera has amazing specs and looks impressive. Not only can it shoot at HD and take photos larger than most cameras, it has lights to help record video at night. It records to micro SD and makes downloading easy. The entry-level 4GB model will run you $50, but you can upgrade to 8GB or 16GB for $10 or $20 more, respectively. Head over to the MeCam website
Canon’s new Powershot G16 is the best point and shoot on the market! Canon recently released this new camera, replacing the Powershot 15 (really). Besides an uncreative name the Powershot G16 comes with several upgrades from the 15.
The new camera now sports a Digic 6 processor, 60p video capture, speedier autofocus and the ability to shoot 9.3fps in burst mode. The other major update is the inclusion of built-in WiFi, which now allows users to upload photos to Flickr, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and Canon’s Image Gateway.
Unchanged specs include the same 12.1MP 1/1.7-inch CMOS sensor looking out at the world through an identical 5x 28-140mm (35mm equivalent) f/1.8-2.8 lens. The G16 will be available starting in October, and is the most expensive of the new line, tipping the scales at $550.
The future of Fujifilm in the united states will be a retro-styled Instax Mini 90 camera. The camera is scheduled to be released in Japan this september, and will be released in the spring of 2014 here in the states. This camera will be here in the future, and it seems as if it were to be following the social media trends.
The camera is set up with lithium-ion rechargeable batteries, and several shooting modes, including Macro, Double Exposure, and Bulb Mode, which allows you to expose your shots for up to 10 seconds. In case long exposures are not your thing, this camera also has a “high-performance flash” than can be set based on your exposure. And if that isn’t enough, it comes with a fast shutter, up to 1/400th of a second.
If you want to find out more about the little instant shooter, head over to the Google Translated site by clicking here. Fair warning, many of the headings are images instead of text, so there’s still quite a bit of Japanese even in the translated version.
The camera is set to hit Japanese shelves on September 20th, but won’t be making landfall in the US until the Spring of 2014, when it will retail for around $210.
Canon Body are on sale right now! The canon 6D originally cost $2000! this is a great price for a camera that has many of the same features that the 5d mark III.
I am not sure how long this will last but it is on sale, you can jump on the Canon 6d body on ebay.
No this isn’t some crazy new drug, it is a camera built with social media in mind. SO much so the company is giving it a self-assigned title of “worlds firs social camera”. Now i dont know how our phones feel about that considering most pictures taken today are taken on a smart phone. Either way i think the flash is cool enough.
This camera takes 5MP pictures through a 25mm f/2.4 manual focus lens. The camera uses 3G for its social sharing capabilities. Simply insert a SIM card into the camera and you’re off to the races. The 2GB of built-in storage is only there to hold photos when you’re out of 3G range, everything else uploads immediately to your very own theQ LAB, where owners are given unlimited personal online storage
This camera was made with the montra “Shut up and Shoot”, so the interface is simple and easy. The Q is also waterproof! I love this and think it is a great concept for a camera, but i dont know how successful it will be at $200. head over to the camera’s website by clicking here
Check out this video that really shows you nothing about the camera but really sells it.
This new product looks like something out of an old Star Trek episode. The Flexcam is a panoramic camera with multiple sensors and and OLED screen. Created by Queen’s University’s Human Media Lab. They designed this camera to be stretched and bent to capture the panoramic view desired. Check out this crapy video that dose not really explain much and that is horribly edited.
But who knows where this technology can be used, maybe inserted into astronauts suets or wrapped in plastic and dropped to the bottom of the ocean because it may be totally useless. But it could be the future.
