    The Top 20 iPhone And iPad Apps of 2011

    It’s telling that Apple chose an app that debuted more than 14 months ago, Instagram, as its “iPhone App of the Year” for 2011. This should not imply that there was a shortage of quality and groundbreaking apps released this year. Far from it. From social magazines to music discovery apps to console-quality games that players can hold in the palms of their hands, there… Read More

  • Transfer Super 8 To Digital… The Hard Way

    Three from James Miller on Vimeo. James Miller wanted to transfer this old Super 8 movie shot in 1979 to digital. Instead of, you know, using ready-made gear or services, he attached a mask to a Canon 5DMK2 and ran the film a frame at a time past the sensor, syncing the frames with the camera’s recording capabilities. The results are impressive, to be sure, but according to Miller the… Read More

  • Here's the official trailer for Super 8

    A cam version of this trailer leaked last week — bootleg or viral, you decide — and now the official trailer just hit YouTube. My prediction about the Steven Spielberg J.J. Abrams movie: Better than Cloverfield, but no War of the Worlds. (chew on that a bit) Read More

  • A trailer for J.J. Abrams next movie project, Super 8

    Okay, this so-called leaked, top secret trailer trailer shot on a cam is clearly a viral video (along with this website), but that doesn’t matter. You still need to watch it. Super 8 is supposed to be J.J. Abrams’ apology for Cloverfield. My hopes are high. Read More

  • Kodak brings its pro Vision3 film to Super 8


    I’m loving Kodak lately. They’re rocking the sensors, they’re introducing new Super 8 film(spotted here), what’s next? Their own social network? Actually, to be honest, I don’t really understand this latest move. It makes a lot less sense than a new color still film, which is still relatively well-used. Super 8 is pretty rare to find, and although its low cost… Read More
