Man Replaces His Own Eye With a Robotic Camera, Calls Himself the Eyeborg

With Google Glass gone, the concept that we will all one day have cyborg-like heads-up displays in our eyeballs has taken a hit. However, there is still hope in the form of a man calling himself the, ahem, Eyeborg. He lost his vision early in life and now he has replaced his damaged eye with a pretty impressive little camera.

Rob Spence lost vision in his right eye in a shotgun accident as a child, but he’s now equipped with an RF-enabled camera eyeball that can transmit video to an external recorder. He’s actually in the second phase of the robotic eye, and claims that the new model has made quite a few improvements over the first one.

According to his site, the plan is to make the next model actually resemble a typical, organic eye in terms of appearance.

It’s a very cool idea and I’m actually very interested to watch the whole thing as it progresses. We’re still pretty far off from living the dream of restoring sight to the completely blind, but the potential for turning our own heads into recording devices seems nearly unlimited.

This Is What It Looks Like To Shoot Video Through a Large Format Camera Lens From 1880

By now, we have posted a couple videos from Mathiu Stern’s “Weird Lens Challenge,” but I’m not sick of them yet, so here’s the latest one. This time, he has mounted a 136 year-old large-format lens with an early mechanical iris mechanism.

Actually getting the lens onto the camera seems to have taken a fair bit of work. It required extension tubes and a helicoidal ring in order to enable it to focus. A large format camera from the late 1800’s is obviously a very different beast from a modern Sony A7, so it’s not a surprise, but he he even had to add a ring of cardboard to keep the tight fit.

The resulting footage is, as you’d imagine, rather dream in terms of quality, but I’m actually pretty impressed with its overall sharpness. The contrast is reduced from the high-end lenses that we’re typically used to (likely thanks to lack of modern coatings), but the lens preserves a lot of fine detail.


Apple Claims There Are 800 People Working On Developing the iPhone Camera

Posting about the iPhone camera (or really any smartphone camera for that matter) tends to cause a bit of a divide in the comment sections. Some users are sure that the smartphone camera will be all that exists at some point down the line, eventually replacing our big cameras. While other users prefer to dismiss smartphone cameras wholesale and claim that they “aren’t real cameras.” The reality, as usual, is somewhere in the middle, but the surge of smartphone cameras is undeniable and in piece by 60 Minutes, Apple reviewed there’s a team of 800 people working on making the iPhone camera all that it can be.

The overall piece feels a bit fluffy in terms of hard journalism, but the bit talking about the iPhone’s camera is pretty interesting. The claim is that there are 800 people specifically dedicated to working on the iPhone’s camera performance. The module itself has 200 pieces and then there’s all the software involved in maximizing image quality from tiny equipment. They even have simulations of different lighting environments so they can tweak away on the camera’s overall performance.

I’m a little late to the party, but having just purchased an iPhone 6S Plus (personal purchase, not subsidized by Apple or anyone else for that matter), I’m once again reminded that smartphone cameras have gotten, well, pretty great. Apple is clearly very dedicated to marketing their iPhone as a great camera, even dedicating entire ad campaigns to that fact.

You can watch the whole 60 Minutes piece above if you wish. On a somewhat related note, I miss Andy Rooney. I bet he’d have something wonderfully grumpy to say about phones that are also cameras.


Facebook Is Now Supporting Live Photos from iPhone 6s

Apple Live Photos Now Supported by Facebook

For quite some time now, camera and smartphone makers have been trying to find a way to mash photos and short videos together into some kind of cute hybrid file. Microsoft has been doing it for quite some time in their Lumia phones, but now the 800-pound smartphone gorilla that is the iPhone 6s has added Live photos as a functionality, and it’s making others take notice. Now, Facebook will support the Live Photos in Newsfeeds.

Sadly, the update only applies to iOS Facebook users at the moment, but even a small bit of support from internet mega-giant Facebook can lend a function a lot of credibility.

If you’re not familiar with Live Photos, it’s simply a picture with a very short snippet of video captured around when he shutter was fired. So, in addition to a photo, you basically also get a very short video to provide some context for the photo.

I know some of you have already tuned out and headed to the comments to say, “who cares?” but I’m genuinely curious to see if Apple’s support is enough to make people widely adopt the Live Photo format. I’ve taken a few with the 6S Plus and with several Microsoft phones before that and I actually think it’s a pretty cool thing.

Photogrpapher Karl Taylor Explains How to Shoot Dancing Photos With Flash and Motion Blur

Portrait shoots with dancers can be insanely fun. They typically have unprecedented body awareness and physical capabilities that are a blast to photograph. Shooter Karl Taylor put together a tutorial with light-maker Broncolor (this isn’t a sponsored post, but the video was produced by Broncolor) about how to take dance portraits with both flash and motion blur.

By using a mixture of strobes and hot lights, the photos have both a sharp version of the dancer, as well as a swirly trail of blur representing their body movements. While the video uses several pricy Broncolor lights, you could also achieve a similar effect using more simple equipment like a speed light and a basic lamp.

It’s a fun project to try and there are tons of possibilities due to the slightly unpredictable nature of the process.

You can see some of the results on Instagram.

This Video Provides an Excellent Explanation About How Camera Sensors Work

Sometimes I catch myself taking my camera for granted. On a fundamental level, I know how it works, but some of the things a modern camera can accomplish are truly amazing if you step back and consider the actual technology involved. This 13-minute video does a great job explaining the nitty-gritty technical bits about what goes on when a camera’s sensor operates.

To be fair, there’s a fair bit of very technical information in the video, but it’s presented in a way that even my internet-ruined attention span was able to keep with it.

I know things like this aren’t always as exciting as learning a new lighting technique or reading about a fancy new piece of camera gear, but I have really found that having a deeper understanding of what’s going on inside the camera can change the way I think about actually using the thing.

It’s also got a lot of fancy technical words you can use to sound really smart when you’re arguing with other photographers on the internet. You can say things like, “Sir, have you even considered the diodes? I think not!”

This Red Bull BMX Video Looks Like a Video Game Thanks to Clever Camera Tricks

I’m not a fan of Red Bull the drink, but their Media House is responsible for some seriously cool stuff. A recent project called Kaleidoscope is a BMX bike video starring rider Kriss Kyle and it’s one of the most innovative I have seen in a while.

In the video, Kyle rides around a world that literally looks like a video game. Throughout the video, there are various optical illusions that I had to go back and watch a few times to figure out how they were done.

The riding is also pretty sick.

I know this isn’t strictly photography-related, but stuff like this really does make me feel inspired to go out and shoot something awesome. Just seeing things created at such a high level makes me want to up my own game.

Here's a behind-the-scenes look at how it was made.


New Gear: Polaroid Cube+ Is an Updated Action Camera With Wifi

Polaroid Cube+ Action Camera with Wifi

In a way, the original Polaroid Cube action camera is a bit like Rocky. It's small and has always been something of an underdog to the GoPro goliath. But, it was also tenacious and appealing to the masses (in large part due to its cheap price point). Now, Polaroid has given their action camera a makeover, and has introduced the Cube+, which gets a few key upgrades.

The Cube+ is now Wifi-enabled, which means that the dedicated iOS and Android apps allow you to control it remotely, beam images to the device’s storage, or just use a mobile device as a remote viewfinder. For a device this small, that’s a pretty important feature to have.

The new model gets a video resolution bump to 1440p at 30 fps, and now has digital image stabilization to smooth out footage.

Polaroid Cube+ Action Camera with Wifi

The body itself is still shockproof, weather-proof, and splash-resistant, which means it’s not meant to be fully submerged under water, but it will stand up to most extreme sports or other popular activities like mud runs.

The Cube+ costs $149 and comes with a 128 GB Micro SD card and a bumper case. That’s about half the price of the similarly-sized GoPro Session, before you add the value from the SD card. Of course, you lose some pure imaging horsepower and the ability to go completely underwater, but that’s a pretty significant savings if you don’t need those features. The original Cube will still be sticking around at its very attractive $99 price point.

Video: 10 Tips For Taking Better Pictures of Your Dog

We think dogs are the best. These loyal fuzzy creatures aren’t just fun to be around, they also make excellent photo subjects.

Elias Weiss Friedman, who goes by The Dogist, seems to agree. Friedman has been shooting dogs around New York City for the last two years and in that time he has built a massive Instagram following of over 1.2 million people and is gearing up to release his first book, The Dogist: Photographic Encounters with 1,000 Dogs.

In a video first shared with Time’s Lightbox,Friedman reveals 10 tips to help you make the most of your dog photography.


DJI Osmo Camera Shoots Stabilized 4K Video, No Drone Required

DJI Osmo Stabilized 4k Video Camera

When you hear the name DJI, you probably immediately think of unmanned, remote-controlled aircrafts (or drones, if you prefer), but today they have announced the Osmo camera, which is meant to be used on a handheld stabilizer for shooting on the ground.

The Osmo is part of a system, so if you already have a DJI ZenMuse camera, it’s compatible with the new stabilizer. However, it comes as part of a package with a 4K camera with a 1/2.3” sensor and a 94-degree field of view. It also shoots 12-megapixel still images.

DJI Osmo Stabilized 4k Video Camera

The controls are built into the handle of the device so you can manipulate them on the fly. The Osmo has a built-in stereo microphone as well as a 3.5mm audio jack for an external microphone. There’s also an optional smartphone clip for watching footage in real time.

For roughly twice the price, you can get a DJI Ronin stabilization system, which adapts to more robust camera systems like DSLRs. Still, for $649, the Osmo competes with consumer grade video cameras, and while it lacks optical zoom many shooters look for, the stabilization and the unique form factor will definitely have some appeal.

This Is How You Make a “Dirt Blizzard” For a Mountain Bike Movie

The folks at Anthill Films are crazy in the best possible way. We’ve covered some of their mountain bike movie antics before, but creating a full on blizzard of dirt at the Whistler Mountain Bike Park might be one of the coolest things I have seen in quite some time.

The scene was inspired by a simple quote from one of Anthill’s previous movies about how one rider wished it would snow dirt and it could be shaped like snow. From there, the whole thing, well, snowballed into a crazy cinematic mountain bike riding scene.

In order to pull it off, they used pete moss as fake snow. They distributed by modifying leaf blowers to suck up the course moss particles and blast them all over the trails.

The resulting footage is (in my biased, mountain-bike-loving opinion) ridiculously awesome. Seeing some of the best riders in the world blasting through freshly fallen dirt is just endlessly entertaining. But, it also appeals to the photographer in me. These folks had an awesome idea for making interesting images and they did what they needed to in order to make it happen.

So, next time you have an insane idea for a photo or video shoot, put some thought into what it might take to actually make it happen. Sure, we all can’t get our hands on thousands of dollars worth of modified snow blowers and magical dirt snow, but with some creativity, you might be surprised what you can create.


New Gear: GoPro Hero+ Action Camera Brings Wifi and 60 FPS to the Entry Level

If you’re looking at buying a GoPro camera going into the holiday seasons, it looks like you’re going to have plenty of options to choose from. Today, GoPro is announcing their entry-level Hero+ camera, which checks in at $200, but brings with it added Wifi and 1080p footage capture at 60 fps.

The camera is similar in many ways to the (as you might expect) to the GoPro Hero+ LCD that was debuted a few months ago. The LCD brings a retail price of $300, but the addition of Wifi and Bluetooth to the Hero+ means that you can use the app to set up and control the camera, which makes the LCD less of a necessity.

Beyond that, it does all the GoPro stuff you expect a GoPro camera to do. It shoots 8-megapixel photos, produces time lapse videos with intervals from .5 to 60 seconds, and shoots five image bursts over the course of a second.

The camera is built directly into the waterproof housing, which is a bit different than the higher-end GoPro cameras, but it’s waterproof to 131 feet.

It will be up for sale in early October with the previously-mentioned price of $200. And while those upgrades may not sound all that ground-breaking, the wireless actually fundamentally changes the way the camera can be used, so that’s a pretty big deal.

In other GoPro news, they’re dropping the price of the cube-shaped Hero Session down to $300 from $400, which is just fine by me.

This Slow-Motion, Bullet Time Video of Fire Breathers Is Totally Mesmerizing

Bullet time videos have turned into a bit of an arms race, with shooters using more and more gear to try and get even more over-the-top footage. Mitch Martinez calls his creations Time Slices and the latest one of some fire breathers is truly fascinating.

In order to capture the footage, he used an array of Canon DSLRs in concert with Panasonic GH4 cameras and even RED's Epic camera, which shoots up to 120 fps. The effect can make just about anything look cool, but in the hands of a seasoned (and talented) director of photography like Martinez, it's capable of some truly amazing things.

In the end, the whole thing is a bit of overkill, but that’s what makes it so fun. Watch it at maximum resolution on a nice screen and you’ll likely be glad they went so far over the top with it.


New Gear: Sony A7S II Gets 5-Way Image Stabilization, Internal 4K Video Recording

Sony A7S II full-frame camera with 4K Video

Sometimes, when a camera company introduces a new system, you have to wonder if they're going to give it the support it really needs to thrive. Sony, however, seems dead set on supporting their full-frame A-series cameras with a string of aggressive updates that continues today with the announcement of the A7S II.

The A7S II maintains some of the crucial pieces of the original version, using a 12.2-megapixel resolution that enables the insanely-high 400,000+ ISO performance. But, there have been some considerable upgrades. One big move is the addition of the 5-way internal image stabilization system like the one found in the A7 II.

Another big step up for the A7S II is the fact that it can now record 4K video straight to a memory card. The original A7S requires a separate video recorder to deal with all of that data that gets churned out when capturing super high-res video. Beyond that, it has full-pixel readout rather than relying on pixel binning, which means that it's capturing full data on each frame. That's a very notable difference if you're at all interested in pulling stills from 4K video to use as photos. Beyond 4K, it also does 120 fps at 100 Mbps at 1080p, which makes for some seriously high-quality slow-mo.


The upgraded AF system has 169 AF points, which promises better tracking and faster overall performance, even in low-light, which is a selling point for the A7S II in the first place. Even the electronic viewfinder has been revamped, givin git a higher magnification of .78x, so it too is easier to use in the dark.

All in all, the A7S II has received a lot of new features, making it a very worthy successor to the already-popular A7S, at least on paper. Right now, it's only officially announced in Europe, where it will carry a price of 3,400 Euro. We have no info about a US release just yet, but I have to imagine it's coming.


Canon’s 250-Megapixel APS-H Sensor Shoots 5 FPS at 30x 4K Resolution

Canon 250-megapixel Sensor

The Canon Expo is about to start here in New York, which means Canon is ready to show off some of their new technologies, including their 4,000,000 ISO camera. Today, Canon Japan announced the development of a 250-megapixel sensor for shooting low-frame-rate video.

The sensor is an APS-H CMOS, a size which Canon phased out of their EOS line after the Canon 1D Mark IV. It has a 1.3x crop factor when compared to a full-frame sensor and can shoot five frames per second at 250-megapixels. That’s not a typical video framerate, but it is usable for things like industrial and research applications.

Despite fitting all those pixels onto a sensor that’s even smaller than a full-frame chip, Canon claims that it’s still able to achieve impressive levels of low-light performance. Not only is it high-megapixel, but it also operates at a rather absurd speed, which is essential because of the sheer volume of data we're talking about here, which can be a bottleneck for many camera systems.

It’s important to note that this isn’t a commercial product at this time and no one is expecting consumers to buy it, so all of the dismissive comments people will inevitably make are shortsighted. If this pixel miniaturization process is as effective as they claim, it could be a very interesting technology when it does come into the consumer realm.
