Nikon Just Set the World Record for the Biggest Human Camera

Nikon Just Set the World Record for the Biggest Human Camera Nikon has just been awarded the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest human camera. To celebrate its upcoming 100th anniversary on July 25th, 2017, Nikon released a load of collectible lenses, cameras, and other items. But their latest stunt in the celebration was to stand around in the courtyard of a rather beautiful Italian building in a bid to create a camera made of people. The feat was undertaken by Nital (the official distributor of Nikon in Italy) and Media Italia, where over 1,000 people stood together in different colored T-shirts to create the spectacle. In this...

8K and 36MP: The Convergence of Motion and Still Photography

8K and 36MP: The Convergence of Motion and Still Photography It’s not exactly a camera that can slip in to a coat pocket, but the RED Weapon 8K can capture both 8K motion footage as well as 36MP still photos. Photographer and director Vincent Laforet believes the camera is a harbinger for the future of photography. Here’s a 5-minute video in which he discusses this: Laforet was at the Cinegear convention at Paramount Studios recently, and this portrait that he shot with the RED Weapon 8K garnered a lot of attention: The full-size JPEG of the frame grab can be found here on Dropbox. As both a photographer and a filmmaker, Laforet struggles...

This Hypnotic Stop Motion Was Made by Cutting Slices of Wood

This Hypnotic Stop Motion Was Made by Cutting Slices of Wood Stop motion film is a way to bring to life inanimate objects. It’s totally fascinating, but also an incredibly painstaking process to complete. Brett Foxwell is no stranger to this, and is known for great feats in photographic animation. In his latest film, titled WoodSwimmer, Foxwell slowly cuts away thin slices from wood. With each slice, he takes a high resolution photograph. Stitching these together into a stop motion film, he creates mesmerising, hypnotic patterns from the shapes and colours within the wood. The journey through each piece of wood is a rapid, ever-changing one...

A Canon Lens vs. a 60,000 PSI Waterjet

A Canon Lens vs. a 60,000 PSI Waterjet In this 4-minute video that’s both fascinating and heartbreaking for photography lovers, the Waterjet Channel puts a Canon 17-85mm lens through a vigorous test. Well, it’s not really a test. They’re cutting it in half with a waterjet that packs 60,000 PSI of water pressure. We’ve previously seen cross-sections of lenses and cameras showing up all the individual elements inside. However, how this is actually achieved without shattering the carefully assembled photographic masterpieces is pretty cool. By using a water jet that the video’s creators...

Laguna Beach Edits ‘Non-Commercial’ Photo Permit After Outcry

Laguna Beach Edits ‘Non-Commercial’ Photo Permit After Outcry Earlier this month, we reported that the city of Laguna Beach, California, required photographers to pay $ 100+ for a photo permit even if they were shooting non-commercial photos on public land. After word of the policy spread and complaints began flooding in, Laguna Beach has now changed its policy, making it clear that personal photography is free to do on public property. OC Weekly reports that Laguna Beach decided to change its photo policy language after people complained about the confusing wording, which was broad enough to require payment for all forms of personal photography. City...

PSA: No, Blockchain Doesn’t Replace Copyright Registration

PSA: No, Blockchain Doesn’t Replace Copyright Registration If you’ve heard of Bitcoin, then you’re peripherally familiar with blockchain. Blockchain is a distributed database technology that creates a public ledger of every transaction within the system – perfect for cryptocurrencies that lack a central issuing bank. The foundational technology has also gained the interest of creative industries that believe in the power and potential of blockchain-based digital rights management and copyright registration. Such is the case with Binded (formerly Blockai), which aspires to be the “World’s First Copyright Platform.” When a photographer...
