Hey Photographers! Facebook Changed Again (and this time, they want you to pay)

Hey Photographers! Facebook Changed Again (and this time, they want you to pay) It’s happened. Facebook, aka the free marketing platform we have come to know and love, now wants businesses and organizations to pay to engage with their own fans and followers. If you’ve noticed your reach and “likes” declining lately, you’re not alone. Back in December, the company acknowledged that the reach per post — in other words, how many of your followers see your post in their News Feeds — has declined. Various studies have confirmed this, one showing a drop in reach from 12% of all followers to 6% over the course of 4 months. And, another blog is reporting...

It’s an advertisement...

Gizmodo Puts Six Different Action Cameras Through a Thorough Review

Gizmodo Puts Six Different Action Cameras Through a Thorough Review When it comes to choosing an action cam to film your daring, crazy and possibly stupid adrenaline–fueled endeavors, there is no shortage of options. To help you make a more informed decision based on your needs and performance of the cameras, Gizmodo has tested six different action cameras, quite literally putting them head-to-head. Using what I can only describe as a monstrosity of a helmet-mounted rig, Brent Rose took a quick dip in the ocean and a speedy trail ride down the mountains of Santa Monica to gather some useful test footage. The cameras tested were, in no particular order: The...

Teen Taking a Selfie Gets Kicked in the Head… by a Freight Train

Teen Taking a Selfie Gets Kicked in the Head… by a Freight Train While hiking to Macchu Picchu next to some train tracks, a teenager named Jared Michael Frank had an epic idea for a selfie. He would stand right beside the tracks but angle the camera so that it looked like an oncoming train would hit him. Yes, his social media followers would rejoice this day and the ‘Likes’ and ‘Retweets’ and ‘Shares’ would flow freely. But Frank didn’t get the world’s greatest selfie. Instead, due to his severe miscalculation of the speed and proximity of the oncoming train, all Frank got was a right smart kick in the...

The lawsuit that lead to this was initially filed through the ACLU by a gentleman by the name of Christopher Sharp after he was stopped by the police for recording members of the Baltimore Police squad beating and...

Toshiba’s New microSD Cards Set a Speed Record, Feature 8x Faster Write Speeds

Toshiba’s New microSD Cards Set a Speed Record, Feature 8x Faster Write Speeds As cameras get smaller, one of the places they can choose to save space is in the memory card department. A great case in point is the new Nikon 1 J4, which ditched standard SD cards in favor of their smaller micro counterparts. The problem with this move is that microSD cards tend to be much slower than standard SD, but that might not be the case for too much longer thanks to Toshiba. Announced Wednesday, Toshiba has debuted the first microSD cards to comply with the UHS-II standard. That means that these cards — which can write 8 times faster than their predecessors and read almost 3...

Pentax ‘Anti-Commercial’ Doesn’t Show the Camera Once, Is Incredibly Compelling

Pentax ‘Anti-Commercial’ Doesn’t Show the Camera Once, Is Incredibly Compelling If you’re commissioned to make an ad for a major camera company, might we make a small suggestion? Don’t show any cameras. It might seem like a stupid idea on the surface, but when you consider the effectiveness of the Canon ad we shared a couple of weeks ago and this Pentax ad we’re sharing today, you might just agree with us. The ad above, dubbed ABROAD, was shot back in 2012 by filmmakers John Lynch (the gentleman you see throughout the film) and Darrin Roberts (who did the editing). Its creators have called it an “anti-commercial,” and it’s the perfect...

3 Reasons to Use Old Camera Lenses

3 Reasons to Use Old Camera Lenses I know it. You know it. Everyone knows it. Technology moves fast–almost frustratingly fast. Everyone also has that one story about their new and ludicrously expensive computer, TV, or camera, only to find out that within six months it isn’t all that new or expensive. We can’t all keep up with the rat race. In fact, you shouldn’t keep up with the rat race. I will give you three reasons why investing in old lenses is not only a great idea, but also a fun one: “Canon FX” captured by William Warby 1. People want to talk about ‘em. This may sound a...
