Nine months or so must have passed because the Kings of planned obsolescence, Canon Camera, are releasing another new flagship model. If you know you need the newest and best, this is your body but unless you’re a professional, you’ll have no idea what the improvements and upgrades in this new model mean.
Handing some random your camera and asking them to snap your picture is awkward. It gets even weirder when they start telling you to say cheese. If you like your pics with no cheese, get this low-profile GorillaPod Micro 250. It’s light, compact, and cheese-free. Source
It seems like every week some camera company is revolutionizing photography again. Nikon is one of the few brands that may actually be doing it. Their latest creation doesn’t appear to have any buttons or controls, maybe what’s revolutionary is the fact that you can’t screw up the photo.
They should really just be up-front about it and call the MV800 the PervCam. Seriously, Samsung cites the ability to shoot “discreetly” from any angle as the main attribute of this model. Think about that for a second. Okay, now go buy one.
Of course your homemade videos lack the smooth, fluid cinematics of a real movie. That’s because movies are shot using cameras on wheels or dollies, so they can sweep through the shots, creating a smooth, natural pan. Now an MIT engineering student has created a simpler, more portable and much cheaper way for you to get the dolly effect. It’s called Cineskate, basically, a tripod on wheels.
If your girl’s current camera was underwear, it’d be those big, white, saggy granny panties. Can’t have that. Now, on the other hand if this new Canon Powershot ELPH was underwear, it would be a hot pink, silk number. If you go out and buy her one, it’s kinda like a gift for both of you.
Aside from maybe spotting a rare Kirtland’s Warbler or an Ash-Throated Flycatcher, what do birdwatchers have to be excited about? Never thought about that before, have you? Well, now there’s Sony’s new digital binoculars that capture 3-D full-HD video and big, bold still images. They also feature built-in GPS for geotagging your rare bird images or whatever you might shoot.
Unless you went back to shooting film, which sounds cooler than actually doing it, your vintage-retro-heritage attire is probably clashing with your camera right now. The Pentax Q Black digital camera will fix that. It looks like a 1960s rangefinder but it’s actually a compact digital that shoots a 12.4 MP file and offers a whole slew of interchangeable lenses. There, style uncramped. You’re welcome.
If the shaky, dark video footage shot from your phone isn’t quite inspiring you, maybe you should get a real camera. This Sony NEX-VG20 is legit. It shoots full HD and even captures 16MP still images. Using interchangeable lenses, it also lets you create the exact look you’re shooting for no matter what you point it at.
