A backpack’s a great way to carry a bunch of stuff while keeping your arms free. That’s why they can be a great photography accessory. The fact that it’s always out of reach on your back is annoying, though. This is surely why Wolffepack has created a photography-focused pack you can access without having to remove it.
Am I going to watch that new Bourne movie? I don’t know, probably not. Are you? You probably don’t need to, because the coolest part of the movie isn’t actually in the movie—it’s this behind the scenes footage showing the filming of a car chase. The B-roll footage shows how the arm of the chase car camera swings…
While I usually enjoy a good crush on the hydraulic press every now and then, this one felt particularly painful. In its latest video, the Hydraulic Press Channel decided to crush two vintage Canon and Nikon SLR cameras followed up with the complete decimation of a lens (which actually puts up a pretty good fight). It…
When you go to the trouble of installing a security camera in some hard-to-reach place, you want to know for certain it will survive with little need for maintenance. That’s what Panasonic is promising with this remote camera that keeps on recording even when the wind is blowing at preposterous speeds up to 134 MPH.
When you’re trying to convince photographers that an $11,000 camera lens is a worthy investment, sometimes you need more than a list of specs. So Canon created a short stop-motion video of its EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM lens disassembling itself and revealing all of its wonderfully complicated internal components.
Getting a buttery smooth tracking shot requires special camera gear, like a Steadicam rig. It also requires a skilled operator, very unlike the man in this video. Demonstrating a stabilizing rig at the recent Cine Gear Expo in LA, he failed to keep a secure hold on the Arri digital cinema camera it was supporting, …
If you’ve ever held a high-quality camera lens, the first thing you notice is the weight. Thanks to layers and layers of thick glass hunks inside, they end up being very heavy. However, thanks to research being done at Harvard on something called metalenses, one day those mgiant glass-filled lenses might be obsolete.
If you’ve ever found yourself crammed into a packed subway car, right up against another rider’s backpack, you’ve probably realized just how easy it could be to sneak open a pocket and swipe something. So to help protect expensive photography gear, Manfrotto’s new backpack makes lenses and cameras only accessible…
If you live in British Columbia, don’t try to sneak out a quick text while driving just because you don’t see any cops on the road. The RCMP., Canada’s version of the FBI, have started using DLSR cameras attached to massive scopes to spot distracted drivers from as far as three-quarters-of-a-mile away.
Lens accessories for smartphones are by no means a new idea, but they’re often clunky, awkward to use, and far from something you’d want to try and squeeze into your pocket. These Blips lenses are a different story: They attach to your smartphone like a piece of tape, and are slim enough to carry alongside your credit…
On Friday, GoPro released its figures for the first quarter of 2016, and they show that the company had a rough start to the year. As a result, the company has also announced that a delay in releasing its Drone, the Karma, until this winter.
Nerf’s new N-Strike Elite Terrascout RC Drone looks like something Skynet cooked up to fight alongside the Terminators. But using a wireless remote with a live video feed from the tank’s camera, anyone can use it snipe at friends and co-workers while remaining safely out of range of retaliatory fire.
Having a tripod always on hand can mean the difference between a mediocre or a great shot, but only if you can get it set up in time. By eliminating knobs, buttons, and gangly extending legs, Edelkrone has created an interesting tripod alternative that can be easily positioned in seconds.
Before crashes could be simulated in a computer, aircraft builders would shoot chickens at planes to determine the damage from a mid-air bird strike. This rig, built at Aalborg University in Denmark, sort of does the same thing, but instead tests the damage a drone could inflict on a human.
You may have a 4K camera in your pocket right now without even realizing it. Even if you don’t have a 4K TV to watch those videos on, you can use that camera to make even better 1080p videos right now.
Taking photos through windows is annoying because light bounces off it and ruins the picture. But scientists at MIT just developed new technology that could fix the pesky reflections.
Backing into a parking spot is an impossible challenge for many drivers. How about backing up while also towing a trailer? That could get at least a little easier with a nifty feature on the upcoming 2017 Ford Super Duty pickup, called Trailer Reverse Guidance.
