Amazing timelapse video…

…by talented photographer Dominic Boudreault.

One of these days I hope I can be half as talented as he is!

570 Megapixel Camera…

It is amazing what we can accomplish when we put out minds to work.  Granted, this is not the most technologically challenge project man has ever undertaken, but it is still a marvel of science!

I have always enjoyed astronomy, so now to see what we are doing when we combine that with photography, I find it exciting!  To be able to essentially go back in time and take pictures of events that happened billions of years ago is very inspiring.  It also helps us understand the universe just a little bit more.

Fermilab has built an amazing 570 megapixel camera that will be sent to observatories in Chile.  This is no pocket-sized point-and-shoot: At four tons and five feet tall, it’d be hard to haul around!

Watch the video: Scientists do have a sense of humor! 🙂

I can’t wait to see what awesome images this camera will bring to light…

Canon HDSLRs used in TV show productions…

So a while back, I was commenting in a forum on an non-camera related site, advrider.com, that HDSLRs can do some things that video cameras can’t do.  The argument from the other side is that it was silly that DSLRs are now doing video, and that the two technologies should never marry.  Well, arguing on the net is pretty much a waste of effort on everyone’s part as you rarely sway the other party.

I do find it interesting that more and more major TV and film productions are starting to use HDSLRs for various reasons.  Here is a prime example:

Canon's 5D mkII & 7D on set

Personally, I think it is a perfect marriage of technologies.  I am looking to pick up a 7D myself, and make use of both still and video capabilities.  I am primarily a still photographer, but I am also interested in video as well.  This gives me the ability to explore both in an affordable and creative fashion.

Amazing Bullet-Time video shot on Canon cameras…

So Keanu starred in “Point Break” as well as the “Matrix” trilogy…  What better way to make an homage than to ditch the whoa-man himself, take bullet-time photography, some surfers, and mix in some Canon cameras…  You end up with some amazing video footage!

 

Whoa...

Click the pix for surfers in bullet-time!

 

Instant poster anyone?

So, how about a super-sized Polaroid camera?

Instant 20 X 24 photos are BACON!
