EU regulations changed recently that (at least in part) caused still cameras to have limitations on video recording length. Administrative obstacles are gone now. It is up to only the manufacturers whether their cameras will have video recording limits or not.
500px informed it’sown users, but PetaPixel and The Register wrote about the data theft in which sixteen web services were hacked and about 620 million users’ data was stolen. Among these sites there was the popular photo sharing site 500px as well. The hackers got 14.5 million users’ personal information. The large scale data hacking was revealed after the 10 GB worth of data was published as available for buyers on the Dark Web. This should alert you to reset your passwords!
Maybe I should’t need to be mentioned, yet it needs as more and more people are unexplainably devoted to use a fisheye lens. This can be sene not only in the images of GoPro and other action cameras (where it almost cannot be avoided) or the use of snap on lenses, but in everyday photo stories line up a growing number of fisheye shots – often without any reason.
In the Christmas preparation preriod Adobe made his best offer ever to connvince photographers to choose their cloud base subscriptions. They offered an unbeatable price for the most popular photography software package.
Another photographer gave up his objection against mobile photography. This time it is National Geographic’s Setephen Alvarez who decided to jump into photographing for his magazine with a mobile. He uses the 41 megapixel Nokia not yet available everywhere (cetainly not in Hungary), but his adventure has a great marketing value for the manufacturer – yes it is clearly advertising them.
Many times I wish it rather wouldn’t exist, but many enthusiasts feel an unexplainable affection for the clicking sound of the shutter of a DSLR. One of them sat down and composed a comparison video that sounds really good – listen to it!
Facebook site of the teenage daughter of a friend got hacked and it was flooded by porn pictures and then it was shared everywhere across the net. This gave me the idea to write about the security of our passwords.
Another problem has been discovered with the newest generation of the GoPro action cameras. They fry the 64 GB MicroSD cards, not only erasing all material contained on them but also rendering the cards totally useless. Better brand cards do get replaced in warranty but that’s more consolation, not solution.
Recently I came across an interesting firmware error when I took for a test run one of the latest Hero3 Black models in the popular GoPro camera line. It’s not a serious problem, but when met for the first time expect your eyebrows to rise!
