Video Photography

Vimeo
Vimeo is a respectful community of creative people who are passionate about sharing the videos they make. We provide the best tools and highest quality video in the universe.
http://vimeo.com/


Vimeo is a video-centric social networking site (owned by IAC/InterActiveCorp) which launched in November 2004. The site supports embedding, sharing, video storage, and allows user-commenting on each video page. Users must register to upload content. Registered users may also create a profile and upload small user pictures as their avatars, comment and "like" videos.

Vimeo does not allow commercial videos, gaming videos[1], pornography, or anything not created by the user to be hosted on the site.[2] Vimeo has gained a reputation as catering to a high end, artistic crowd because of its high bitrate, resolution, and relative HD support.[3]

The name "Vimeo" was created by co-founder Jakob Lodwick. It is a play on the word "video", inserting the word "me" as a reference to the site's dedication to user-made films exclusively. It is also an anagram of "movie."

It is also an anagram of "movie."
...........That's clever! :)

Vimeo has really gained a lot of popularity, in this respect. I'm pretty sure all of the tutorial videos on phpBB.com are hosted by Vimeo.

Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W1 Review
Image
It’s not very often that we review a camera that offers a completely new approach to photography, but that’s certainly the case with the Fujifilm Finepix Real 3D W1. As its name would suggest, the Fujifilm W1 is the world’s first camera that allows you to view 3D images, and it does so without the need to wear any special 3D glasses. The Fujifilm Finepix Real 3D W1 uses two lenses and two 10 megapixel sensors to achieve a stereoscopic 3D effect, simultaneously taking and layering together two 2D images into a single 3D composite, with both 3D still images and video with stereo sound on offer...

Yeah yeah yeah... but stereographic photos are old news (very - there are old sepia prints of these things in museums). This is a gimmick and Fuji are re-inventing the wheel. The only new thing here is that you get both shots at once in digital format. Stereographic cameras that work in film format have been available for decades - check out http://www.lomography.com for more on that point. There you'll find film cameras that have as many as 9 (lomo pop 9) separate lenses for some really cool effects. For an example of a stereo camera check here. Holga and Diana cameras, now sold by lomography along with their own models, were *the* thing to have in the 1960s but now they're considered "toy" cameras for hobbyists and enthusiasts. They feature interesting light-leaks and bizarre colours in the prints (often made worse by the need to use expired film).

Anyway... long story short, try this at home kids. Stereography is fun.

Sea Turtle

I like this...

*Dutch navy sailor loses his waterproof camera in water off Aruba Island.
*Sea turtle somehow manages to turn it on & then films itself.
*Paul Schultz finds the camera on a beach in Key West Florida & tracks down the owner 1800km away.
*Watch the sea turtle on YouTube.

I have nothing new to present here but, I thought I'd just say that as far as image editing software goes, Nikon's Capture NX 2 rocks for editing raw (NEF) files. I only discovered this fact yesterday having been scared off by the price tag a couple of years back. I'm still scared of the price tag but, having tried the program, I don't much want to throw it away and my days of "cracking" software are done.

Highly recommended. :)

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5V
The Sony HX5V includes both a GPS receiver and compass built-in, allowing it to tag images with both the location and direction in which they were captured. Sony's bundled software and third-party applications such as Google Earth, which can read these tags, can then use the information to display images on a map by location. Cleverly, the GPS receiver is also used to keep the camera's internal clock accurate.

Microsoft Surface
The Microsoft Surface® platform brings people together to connect, learn, and decide. It enables experiences that change the way people collaborate and connect with a 360-degree interface. And, with PixelSense™, Microsoft Surface sees and responds to touch and real world objects—supporting more than 50 simultaneous inputs.


This experience comes to life in the new 40 inch Samsung SUR40 for Microsoft Surface that can be used as a table, on the wall, or embedded in other fixtures or furniture.
