I’ve never been to Vienna but I can tell you that it is beautiful because this video by FilmSpektakel basically takes you all over the capital of Austria through a fun zooming effect that teleports you to different landmarks. It’s sort of like traveling on a haze of drugs and booze.
A while back, camera makers decided that people want to zoom in really, really far. More recently, they also realized people want great image quality and advanced controls. (Who’da thought!?) Here are new two cameras that do both. Let’s see which is worth your hard-earned dollars.
Trust us, you really don’t need a camera with a built-in telescope. But in the right hands, the insane 83x optical zoom on the new Nikon P900 is mindblowing.
If you want to be a total creep and spy on things from miles away, just get a camera like the Nikon P900. The zoom is so ridiculous it’s scary. Check out the video by Fratila Angelo below that shows just how close you can get. It shows an excavator at work and when it zooms out, you realize you’re seeing that from…
Ever see those giant rectangular cameras on TV sets and wonder why they’re so damn big? It’s because they house giant-ass lenses that can zoom from here to the moon while maintaining large, bright apertures. One internet mastermind decided to pair his $60,000 Fujinon XA55 lens with a Panasonic GH4, and it’s great.
In the future, we might be able to zoom in from an impossible far off distance and see a target like some insane sniper. Daniel Taylor made this simulation that shows what an extreme 343x super ridiculous zoom would look like and it’s crazy to imagine that this could be real.
Camera makers are trying everything to revive the tanking market of low-end shooters. Their latest gambit? Insanely long zooming cameras that reach across vast swaths of land. But zoom is just another sweet-sounding spec that could leave you with crappier pictures.
Elon Musk tweeted "the universe is a really, really big" along with this mind-blowing Ultra-HD video. It shows the camera zooming and panning over the stunning 69,536 x 22,230, 1.5 billion-pixel, 4.3GB Andromeda galaxy panorama recently published by NASA. Indeed, the Universe is a huge place full of wonder.
Everyone, from classic movie directors to film school students, has used the zoom at some point to add some swagger to their films. This cool mashup collects some of the most famous zoom ins, zoom outs, dolly zooms, and basically anything zoom related in the movie history.
The world starts to blur. People and trees and houses and stores are just streaks of colors as you zoom by. The roads become vertical as you make your turns. You're going so fast that, if you hit anything on the road, even a stick, you're probably going to fly hundreds of feet in the air and smack yourself to pulp.…
If there's one telltale sign that a video wasn't produced by a professional, it's usually the crappy sound accompanying the footage. The microphones on a smartphone or a cheap camcorder are awful at best, which is why companies like Sony and Zoom are finally releasing models with stereo mics that will help your…
Here's an under-reported feature of iOS 7: you can finally zoom in while video recording now. It seems like it could get a little choppy, as you have to pinch to zoom while already recording video but from the looks of the video above shot by 9to5Mac, the results are pretty seamless.
The iPhone 5's capable of capturing really impressive video with its 8MP camera but the accompanying sound quality isn't all that great. But with this new add-on mic from Zoom, your iPhone 5 videos will finally have the audio they deserve.
Every time I look at the sky in a remote location, far away from cities' light pollution, I marvel at the immensity of the Universe. But this video truly shows how much bigger the Universe is, how impossibly huge. Just watch and look at all those dots turn into galaxies until you reach your destination.
Just because virtually every cell phone on the face of the Earth now doubles as a camcorder doesn't mean it does a particularly good job of it—especially when tasked with recording in low-light or noisy environments. The Q2HD from Zoom, however, is designed to record (and stream) in full HD regardless of the…
Zoom's recorders have always been pretty solid, but their latest seems like it was made for action. With its five onboard "studio quality" microphones, the Zoom H2n can hone in on the timidest of interviewees even under heavy fire.
A pair of lenses that clip onto your Kinect, Nyko's Zoom reduces the distance you need to play Kinect by up to 40 percent. If it works, it sounds terribly useful, especially in New York City (trust me).
The Zoom R24 is well known as a sturdy and robust portable 4-function music production system. The new R8 provides that same functionality in a form factor small enough to fit in a guitar case.
