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.
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!
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!
Why might a self-proclaimed writer on photography find Nikon’s newest professional super-telephoto lens to be ridiculous…
Check out what development the popular GoPro action cameras went through and what are the differences of the new Hero3 cheaper and more expensive models!
Have a look at a D700 taken totally apart. Nikon’s former semi-professional camera looks like a jigsaw puzzle game in this image. Look for the shutter unit, mount, electronics and the rest.
