10 camera hacks

10 camera hacks

oobject.com profiles ten fun camera hacks. The list includes a meteor shower capturing rig, a camera that creates the most redeye possible, a russian matchbox camera, a kite-flown camera, a paper SLR camera, and more. Which is my favorite. I love the irony of a paper SLR. The matchbox camera is great, but nothing new. […]

drooling over cameras

Yesterday Michael Phelps won his 10th career Olympic gold medal. That’s the most ever by an individual. Mark Spitz, Carl Lewis, Paavo Nurmi and Larissa Latynina have nine. Congrats to Michael. What a historic moment. However, I was more excited when NBC showed all the cameras in the media section before Phelps’ historic 200m butterfly […]

Nikon D90 coming?

Nikon D90 coming?

Nikon has scheduled a press event September 3rd. Many are saying Nikon will upgrade the popular Nikon D80. I’d seriously wet my pants if the D90 has instant capture LivePreview with an articulating LCD. I’ve been waiting about 5 years for that. I might end up waiting another 5 years. Fingers crossed on September 3rd. […]

my newest cell phone

my newest cell phone

I decided to retire my Motorola v220. It was a good phone. It’s been in my possession for about 2 1/2 years (or maybe even 3 1/2 years). It’s held up very well with minor wear. I took a fair amount of photos on it once I decided to purchase DataPilot about a year ago […]

it’s a camera. no it’s a light.

The Perspektiva Lamp is a new concept from Transparent House based on an idea of incorporating an iconic item into the form and function of a useful everyday object while maintaining certain artistic qualities. Transparent House chose a vintage camera and flipped the whole notion behind the camera: instead of taking in light, the camera […]

iphone camera telescope zoom

This is wild and wacky. It’s a zoom lens that attaches to the iPhone being sold by mobile.brando.com.hk. I’m guessing that “hk” stands for Hong Kong. Clearly someone who doesn’t know English very well wrote the product description: Function: Overcome the short coming of camera cellphone that can only near-sighted, it also makes distant view […]

Nikon D40x, D80, D300 comparison

Every once in a while, I get someone at work asking me about digital cameras. I love those questions. This time our IT guy was asking me about SLR cameras for consumer-professional use. Below is a reformatted version of an email I sent him. If you’re a seasoned photo pro, then feel free to skim […]

running from camera photo series

running from camera photo series

muggezifter is from Amsterdam and he likes to set the timer on his camera for 2 seconds and run as far away from the camera as he can. File this one under “why didn’t I think of that.” This series is interesting on many levels. Running is such a simple human element, but no two […]
