If you love staring at gadget teardowns, check out photographer Brandon Allen’s Deconstructed. It’s a series of images of dissected video game controllers, their parts neatly arranged for the camera. All of the controllers in Brandon’s series were donated and heavily used (some of them don’t work anymore) hence the dust and worn out parts.
The concept of the Phantom 2 Vision is not one of complete novelty. I will admit that. The Phantom 2 Vision by DJI, however, has something that the other quadricopter cameras do not: solid execution. (And great mobile integration.)
Last year we saw a concept for a pair of glasses that applies Instagram’s filters through its lenses. Bruno Ribeiro took a more literal approach with his Real Life Instagram series, taking not just Instagram’s filters but its entire interface into the real world.
A couple of years ago Triggertrap released its namesake device, an electronic camera trigger that activates your camera based on a variety of inputs. Recently the company launched a Kickstarter for an improved camera trigger, which they’re calling Redsnap.
Insects, contrary to popular belief, are not that different from humans. Studies show that our buggy friends suffer from one of the human world’s most common emotional ailments: the friendzone. So, with that perspective, we look at these beautiful macro photos of bug BFFs.
You’re going to wish you thought of this first after seeing the awesome gallery below.
Redditor hamburgersandwiches and his fiance got married last Saturday (so they’re husband and wife now) and have released to the universe some of the coolest and kookiest engagement photos ever.
Ilija Stjepic wants to do for photographic printing what Instagram did for Polaroid. Ilija and his friends made the Enfojer kit. It lets you develop the images in your smartphone into black and white pictures using traditional techniques.
What can happen in a lifetime? A lot, I’m sure, with a couple of “once-in-a-lifetime” moments thrown in there for good measure.
Anthony Cerniello recently went to his friend Danielle’s family reunion, where he brought along still photographer Keith Sirchio.
I don’t know if 3D cameras ever took off or are taking off, but a simple invention could hasten their downfall. It’s called the Kúla Deeper, an add-on for standard DSLR cameras that uses mirrors to create two side-by-side images or videos.
If you still like print photography and frequently send friends and family snapshots, then you might want to get a Stampede. It’s basically a large, pre-inked rubber stamp that transforms your photographs into postcards instantly.
Last month we featured the iblazr, an external LED flash for mobile devices (it’s on Kickstarter now if you want to get one). If you have an iPhone 4 or later and you want a more versatile flash, get Rift Labs’ The Kick.
Most modern smartphones have a built-in LED camera flash. But if you think that your phone’s flash isn’t bright enough to properly document your party nights, dramatic Instagram pics or Bigfoot sightings, keep an eye out for the iblazr.
There are many uses for infrared cameras, one of them being to monitor plant health. Most people who are looking to get one have been held back not by limited availability but by the market prices of these cameras.
I once saw a photographer scramble around to finish the shoot as the Sun began to set. Needless to say, everyone had to come back the next day because the natural lighting just wasn’t enough and the photos turned out pretty bad and grainy.
