It’s already 2013, and we are still pretty far away from flying cars, which were predicted decades ago. Then again, maybe we aren’t. Check out these clever photographs, featuring Jetsons-like hovering cars.
My mother has boxes of old 35mm film from my youth tucked away in closets and the attic. Most of those pictures we have probably never looked at because the prints were lost long ago. If you have a bunch of old 35mm film around, a new product is on Kickstarter which will help you get these images into your smartphone in digital form.
Cameras being sent to the edge of space are nothing new, but it requires a bit of tinkering skills to set up the balloon and camera mount. Quirky wants to help more people send their cameras to space, which is why they made the Kepler Space Kit.
Smartphones make reasonably adequate cameras, especially if all you want is to capture some photos of your family and daily life. However, one thing that iPhonetographers will quickly find limiting are the optics included in their cameras.
Yowza, it hasn’t been the best month for Instagram. After changing their terms of service to allow them to use images for advertising purposes – and facing a huge backlash by its users, Instagram came back and redacted the changes.
Something as simple as a roll of Scotch tape can transform faces in a not-so-pretty way. In fact, the Scotch Tape series of photos shot by Wes Naman borders on horrifying. Who knew tape could turn regular peoples’ faces into such grotesque abominations?
I find most newspaper ads boring. Not the ads that have been published in a newspaper, but ads that are advertising the paper itself. Note that I said ‘most’, because I just found several that are unique and fun in more ways than one.
Babies. What’s not to love? They coo, they cry, and while they might throw the occasional tantrum or pee all over you without warning, the smile that they’ll give you at the end of the day makes everything worth it.
Look at this amazing DIY camera. It looks pretty professional, but it is all homemade by Dominique Vankan who wanted to replicate the Autochrome Lumière color photography process developed by the Lumière Brothers back in 1907.
If you’ve ever tried snapping photos of birds, you know it’s really difficult to get pics – and it usually requires expensive zoom lenses to get really up close and personal with our feathered friends. With this new gadget, you’ll be able to grab amazing photos of birds for as little as $149.
Halloween may have already passed us by, but there’s never a bad good time for a zombie apocalypse. Though if we had to be attacked by the undead, I’d at least like them to be delicious gummy bear zombies.
The swiveling displays on some modern cameras make it easier to shoot pictures from a variety of angles. iPhones and iPads don’t have swiveling displays (yet), but this attachable right angle lens can help even up the playing field.
Yes, everyone hates traffic cameras. They catch you rushing through the intersection when the light changes from yellow to red, and if you make a right turn on red when you aren’t supposed to. The worst part is not even realizing you triggered a traffic camera, and just getting that damned ticket in the mail with a photo of your car.
Unless you have memory problems, I’ve never understood why someone would want to wear a camera or camcorder on their body to record whatever they’re doing all of the time. I’ve yet to see anybody that’s interesting enough for me to want to know what they’re doing every second of every day.
