  • Mamiya's medium format digital: the 28-megapixel DL28

    Mamiya's medium format digital: the 28-megapixel DL28

    I feel safe in my conviction that I’ll never be using one of these Mamiya beasts, or its Leica, Leaf, or Hasselblad cousins. They’re just too… big. As medium-format digital photography becomes more capable and affordable, it eats away at the hearts of the last die-hard filmies (which I’m one of at times). After all, when you can hit the shutter and get a 160MB 16-bit TIFF… Read More

  • 1080p HDTV photo viewer acts as HDMI switcher too

    1080p HDTV photo viewer acts as HDMI switcher too

    Here’s an interesting little device out of Hong Kong. It’s basically a memory card reader that hooks up to your HDTV, allowing you to see your own pores in glorious 1080p. However, it’s also got a built-in HDMI switching function so you can place it in between, say, your Blu-ray player and your TV and still just only lose one HDMI input. The HD-0310, as it’s called, handles… Read More

    Guy hacks Nintendo DS to work with his DSLR

    Wow, this is a pretty cool setup right here. A professional photographer was sick of lugging his laptop around to photo shoots, so he rigged up his Nintendo DS and custom-coded some software to do the heavy lifting instead. He even leveraged the microphone on the DS to make his camera snap photos when triggered by sound. It also does other stuff that I don’t understand like providing… Read More

    Kodak announces $999 OLED photo frame

    Kodak will be showing off a fancy OLED photo frame in Germany next week. I bet it’ll look really nice. I also bet it’ll be prohibitively expensive for most people. Yep, there we go — it’ll cost $999. I hope you have some really good looking friends and family. If you have beautiful acquaintances and deep pockets, here’s what you’ll get: a super thin 7.6-inch… Read More

  • Camera for the blind captures images in braille

    Camera for the blind captures images in braille

    Ho-lee crap. Now I’ve seen it all (no pun intended). This camera, called the Touch Sight, was developed by Chueh Lee of Samsung China. The basic short and sweet is that you hold the camera against your forehead and when you snap a photo, the camera grabs the image and converts it to braille. So you can actually feel the image against your forehead. It also grabs three seconds of sound… Read More

    Camera works 200 feet underwater, on land too

    The DC800 from SeaLife is an 8-megapixel digital camera that works underwater in that housing apparatus on the left and then works on land as that little guy on the right. Perfect for taking photos of majestic sea creatures during the day and exotic cougars at night. It’s got five special underwater modes to adjust to the color of water that you’re diving in, plus a continuous picture… Read More

  • Sony does Surface-like photo transfers

    http://progressive.playstream.com/playstream/progressive/flashplayers/FLVPlayer.swf Hey, look at this doodad. It’s similar to a near-field technology feature that Microsoft showed off a while ago with its Surface technology except this is from Sony. You basically drop your camera on top of that cube, which is actually a media storage device. The cube senses that your camera is there and… Read More
