Voyageurs Northern Lights

0

In 8K! Well, if you can even render 8K on your puny monitor that is.  This was taken up in Voyageurs National Park, way up in northern Minnesota, like, way up there on the border of Canada.  It’s not a place that’s easy to get to as much of the park consists of lakes and rivers, … Continued

Katmai

We’re at the last of my National Park’s for the Alaska trip, Katmai.  Famous for it’s bears and Brooks Falls.  However, we didn’t go to Brooks Falls though, we spent the time in the backcountry of the park looking for bears up Funnel Creek.  Unfortunately it was late in the year for that particular salmon … Continued

Tiny1 Astrophotography Camera

0

The Tiny1 is an interesting concept camera.  Well, it’s about to become a real camera if the Indiegogo campaign is any indication.  It’s billed as a dedicated astrophotography camera that’s small, lightweight, and connected to social networks and the mobile world.  In practice, I’m not so sure what this camera offers that a traditional DSLR … Continued

Slow-Motion Infared Las Vegas

0

I love Infra-Red Photography.  I have a filter that I put on my camera, and a point and shoot that I modified to be IR.  I’ve gotten some pretty good photos with it, at least in my opinion.  Phillip Bloom loves my infra-red as much as me.  More so probably because he’s converted 3 cameras … Continued

Underground Camera

Heinric & Palmer have set up this massive underground Camera Obscura in the hills of Essex England.  Camera Obscura is the basis for which all of photography was built upon, at it’s most simple is a hole in the side of a box (or in this case a room), that allows light through causing an … Continued

London Day vs. Night

London based photographer Matel has come up with a creative way to show the passage of time in London.  Instead of a typical time-lapse with day to night transitions, he took two sets of videos shot in the same location, hours apart.  Then using hours of post processing and maliciousness alignment, he produced the above … Continued

Pinhole DSLR

0

A pinhole camera is the most basic type of camera there is.  Light enters a tiny pinhole and then exposes a light sensitive film. The above video shows you how to make a very simple adapter for your DSLR to turn it into a pinhole camera.  It’s nice, but I’m not sure if it’s really … Continued

Sequoia & Kings Canyon

Last weekend I knocked off 2 more parks from the list of 59.  Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks in California.  Sequoia is the 2nd oldest park in the country, and Kings Canyon was once known as Grant National Park before the canyon to the North East was included in the park.  Giant Sequoias grow … Continued

17 years of DSLRs

0

For some reason, Jim Goldstein decided to do a head to head comparison of the brand new Canon 5DS R, and the 17 year old Canon D2000.  Spoiler, the brand new one wins in every category.  One things that I think is telling though is that the camera’s firmware and UI hasn’t changed much at all in … Continued

Nanoblock Nikon

0

Nanoblock is sorta like LEGO, except smaller.  And, it’s not LEGO, and it’s Japanese.  It’s smaller pieces, hence the name, that allow more detailed models to be made.  It looks cool, but I don’t think they will have any real dangerous impact on LEGO.  However, this small model is really nano, because it’s made up … Continued
