  1. Rare KGB spy camera collection goes to auction next month. https://kosmofoto.com/2021/01/rare-kgb-spy-camera-collection-goes-to-auction-next-month/ .
  2. New Ultrafast Camera Takes 70 Trillion Pictures Per Second https://petapixel.com/2020/05/07/the-new-worlds-fastest-camera-can-shoot-70-trillion-frames-per-second/ The link above contains an example of the "footage". A couple of more comprehensible examples from a previous iteration of the camera here (https://www.caltech.edu/about/news/ultrafast-camera-takes-1-trillion-frames-second-transparent-objects-and-phenomena): A shockwave created by a laser striking water propagates in slow motion, as captured by a new ultrafast photography technology. A pulse of laser light travels through a crystal in slow motion, as captured by a new ultrafast photography technology.
  3. Cretins always find a way. https://kosmofoto.com/2020/04/theres-a-conspiracy-theory-about-film-helping-spread-coronavirus/ https://www.facebook.com/TakingPhotographsIsNotACrime/posts/3054555327936029 Facebook group Taking Photographs Is Not A Crime shared a post from an unidentified Facebook user, declaring why they were suddenly refusing to shoot film. The post says: “So I’ve taken the difficult decision to give up using film until the current crisis is over. Film uses gelertine [sic] – and that is what laboratorys [sic] use to grow virus on – so your film can carry and spread the corona…”
  4. Perfect example of ad hoc ethics. We, mankind... Texas Secession Convention, A Declaration of the Causes which Impel the State of Texas to Secede from the Federal Union, (February 1861) [...] based upon an unnatural feeling of hostility to these Southern States and their beneficent and patriarchal system of African slavery, proclaiming the debasing doctrine of equality of all men, irrespective of race or color-- a doctrine at war with nature, in opposition to the experience of mankind, and in violation of the plainest revelations of Divine Law. [...] We hold as undeniable truths that the governments of the various States, and of the confederacy itself, were established exclusively by the white race, for themselves and their posterity; that the African race had no agency in their establishment; that they were rightfully held and regarded as an inferior and dependent race, and in that condition only could their existence in this country be rendered beneficial or tolerable. [...] that the servitude of the African race, as existing in these States, is mutually beneficial to both bond and free, and is abundantly authorized and justified by the experience of mankind, and the revealed will of the Almighty Creator, as recognized by all Christian nations [...] https://avalon.law.yale.edu/19th_century/csa_texsec.asp

  7. I had no idea this product existed. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- QUOTE: Automatic Filming. No cameraman? No problem. Film yourself with SOLOSHOT, the Robot Cameraman. You wear the Tag, and the Base automatically pans, tilts & zooms to keep you in the camera's shot up to 2,000 ft. away for over 3 hours. No line of sight required. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- From the FAQ (click on "Learn More" in the web page): Can I use any camera with SOLOSHOT3? We recommend our OpticX high zoom cameras that have been specially designed to be pointed by our little robots. If you're a DSLR or GoPro ninja, you may connect those or other 3rd Party cameras to your Base using the Camera Adapter accessory and recommended cables. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- http://www.soloshot.com
  8. Photographer and videographer Mathieu Stern attached a french plastic camera lens from the 50s, the Photax Heanar type V, to a Sony a7II... with a couple of rubber bands. His article: http://mathieustern.com/2015/11/shooting-a-video-with-a-1950-plastic-camera-lens Watch the results: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3nMOeJlnlcI
  9. Look at the impressive set of new features in the latest firmware update for the Olympus E-M1. They even call it "DOWNLOAD YOUR NEW CAMERA." It makes you wonder how much cameras would improve over time if manufacturers took firmware updates seriously and were generous about it. http://www.getolympus.com/upgrade

  11. The OP video is made with a GH3. Quote from the interview ntblowz has linked to. Leonardo Dalessandri, on the gear he used in the making of Watchtower of Turkey: What equipment did you take on the trip? When you are on the road shooting a personal project you cannot bring loads of equipment. Besides my two cameras, the Panasonic GH3 and the entry-level GoPro3, I had my MacBook Pro 2013 and two LaCie rugged portable 2TB drives. I didn’t use anything else. No sliders, no mounts, no stabilizing gear. I had a little tripod, but I did every shot hand-held. I had three lenses on my GH3: a Lumix 12-35 f2.8, a cheap 14–140 zoom lens and my favorite: a Leica 42.5 f1.2 nocticron. On the screenshot you also see an old Sony camera that I did not use. Most of the footage in the video came from the GH3. I also took a little Tascam audio recorder. It is very cheap but very cool for what I need when I’m traveling. We used it to record typical ambient sounds at the places we visited: people, street noise, water, a flock of birds flying by, a call for prayer, etcetera. Those specific little sound bites are extremely important in the final edit because they can add a lot of impact to the visuals. The video footage was recorded in 1920x1080 format. For the GH3 I used the all-I 25p, 72Mbps, H.264.MOV setting. I also shot hyper lapse sequences in photo mode.
  12. HUMAN. The Movie. What makes us human. Forget for a second all the stupid things we worry about, APS FF s35 UHD FPS DR IBIS ISO DOF RAW LOG LUT THEFUCK, all those stupid things. Human shows (spoken) portraits of people around the world and (aerial) beautiful, extraordinarily beautiful, views of the Earth. Get your favourite armchair and wonderful 4K display and 90 minutes for yourself and watch it. Or use your 7 inch tablet whilst a TV is screaming in the next room. Watch it. Human is made up of 200 incredibly personal portraits. Interviews with people from all walks of life, and that expose many aspects of what makes us human. Human has just been released in several formats (more info on the official site). There's a special extended version (3 volumes of about 90 minutes each) that can be watched on youtube thanks to an arrangement with Google. It is available with embedded subtitles, and there are more languages than the three I show here. Choose the one you feel more comfortable with. English. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdb4XGVTHkE French. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FLqft-ICVQo Spanish. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1WdfVWo1pQ “I dreamed of a film in which the power of words would resonate with the beauty of the world. The movie relates the voices of all those, men and women, who entrusted me with their stories. And it becomes their messenger.” Director Yann Arthus-Bertrand There is a lot of behind the scenes info here, but I'd suggest going there only after you've watched the movie. English. https://humanthemovie.withgoogle.com/ French. https://humanthemovie.withgoogle.com/intl/fr-fr/ Spanish: https://humanthemovie.withgoogle.com/intl/es-es/ Official site: English. http://www.human-themovie.org/ French. http://www.human-themovie.org/fr/ (I must confess I couldn't avoid thinking in terms of sharpness, lighting, and colours. But that's because I'm stupid.) A MOVIE WITH THREE VOICES These three voices – People’s word, Earth’s testimonial et Music’s lyrism – act together to provide a single voice to our humanities. THE VOICE OF PEOPLE As an ode to humanity, HUMAN is a rare collection of stories, faces and fates. Yann-Arthus Bertrand takes us into an immersive experience through human destiny. Through several witnesses who succeed one another and confide, the film director portrays a contrasted humanity. THE VOICE OF EARTH Through the aerial sequences, Yann Arthus-Bertrand shares his vision of the world and the people with the spectator, and offers a poetic and critical insight of our planet. In HUMAN, the camera lens reveals places of an unsuspected beauty, but also poses a careful look at the lives of men worldwide. THE VOICE OF MUSIC As an universal language, music transcends our emotions, sublimates the pictures and rhythmises the story.
  13. Looks like Canon has a working prototype of the 120 megapixel DSLR. But after reading the source I'm linking to, more than a camera prototype I would call it a testbed for the sensor. Read more: http://www.photographybay.com/2015/09/10/canons-120mp-dslr-produces-210mb-raw-files/
