  • DIY: Turn your car's tow hook into a camera mount

    (I’ll go ahead and make the warning before anybody gets too excited: according to a warning by the author of the guide, this modification may disable your air bags, as the car will think it’s being towed.) Ever wanted to take see how incredibly awesome and totally-not-boring the view is from the front of your car? For little more than a few bucks in hardware, a basic camera mount… Read More

  • The Seattle Sling Dry Bag keeps your cams dry and afloat

    The Seattle Sling CA-2001-BLK, the first case produced by Made Products after the Lowepro acquisition, is meant for all you adventurous types. The claim to fame is the case’s zipper-less dry bag center compartment that will obviously work great ’round water, but also hanging on the beach or cruising Dakar by keeping your camera’s dry and dust free. Your gear should… Read More

  • Digital Imaging Systems announces 9 MP camera for mobile handsets

    With the SE C905, Samsung INNOV8, and LG Renoir set to duke it out for the 8 megapixel handset throne over the next few months, what’s the obvious next step? More megapixels, of course! Camera module developer Digital Imaging Systems has bumped it up a notch with the announcement of DIS6931, the world’s first 9 megapixel camera phone module. With its relatively hasty autofocus… Read More

  • Sony a900 leaked in Danish magazine: Is it a leak if it's in a Danish magazine?

    It’s kind of hard to figure out what’s a leak anymore. With PR companies essentially failing to enforce embargoes and paranoid manufacturers trying to keep their precious out of your hands while simultaneously publishing something like the a900 in a magazine staffed by poorly-paid Danish print journalists who have no qualms about publishing the heck out of something just to get… Read More

  • Olympus SP-565 20x Ultra-Zoom digital camera

    What do you get when you throw in a 20x zoom lens into a smallish package? A peeping tom’s second best friend.  Olympus is doing just that with their new SP-565 ultra zoom point-and-shoot cam. (third new model of the day btw) The camera outfit is simply updating the venerable SP-570UZ with the same 20x zoom lens but shrinking the overall bezel size. The techs still were able to include… Read More

  • Canon 50D DSLR shows up on Canon Japan site

    I haven’t been following cameras with as much fervor as I have in the past, so I’m not entirely sure if there’s a cult following for the 50D, but PB stumbled across the official Canon Japan page. We first saw the specs last week and they look great except for that 15.1-megapixel sensor. Talk about some excessive noise. But, there is a test shot with the ISO set at 1600 and… Read More

  • DIY photography of Miroslav Tichý

    Here’s the skinny: Czech born, Prague Academy of Arts educated and Communist opposer. Miroslav Tichý eventually took nearly 100 photos a day on his homemade cameras.  Build from scraps, such as metal plates, crown caps, rubber bands, cardboard, scotch tape, and plexi glass, his awkward yet masterful cameras display an ingenious inventiveness. Time consumed many details of his life… Read More

  • Hidden camera clock brings out the spy in all of us

Just place the clock in the desired location, plug in the wireless receiver to the mains (UK adapter included), connect the receiver to your DVD or TV (cables supplied) and that’s it, your system is ready to go. Now all your spy gear is missing… Read More

  • Logitech's Mac-only QuickCam puzzles, does video


    For those of you who don’t know what that little dot is for on top of your MacBook, iMac, or MacBook Pro, Logitech has something for you. The QuickCam Vision Pro is a Mac-only 2.0-megapixel webcam that sells for $129.99 and it lets you “enjoy lifelike video on iChat or Skype,” provided that your life is two-dimensional. Why Mac-only? Who the heck knows. Maybe all the… Read More

    The UK and Norwegian governments are getting set to launch a $215 million project designed to “curb climate change by preventing deforestation” in the Congo Basin, according to BBC News. Part of the project involves a satellite-mounted high definition camera capable of capturing a 55 mile-wide area of the forest in one fell swoop. A single pixel can capture about ten square… Read More

  • Possible Nikon D700 promotional material

    In anticipation of the release of the Nikon D700, the rumor mills are in full swing. In April, there were rumors about the new body design.

The fine people at Photography Bay are reporting that they have photos of promotional material for Nikon’s… Read More

  • We put our hands all over the Sony Ericsson C905

    After just about every bean the C905 had to offer spilled out last week, I’ve been achin’ to check out this portly-but-pretty 8.1 megapixel shooter phone. I had a brief opportunity to put my mitts all over it following Sony Ericsson’s press announcement in Singapore – read about it over at MobileCrunch. Read More

  • Last call for Polaroid instant film – better move fast


    Alas, as you may know, Polaroid is stepping out of the film business, and although I’m sure 3rd-party film will be available at a premium in the future, Polaroid has set the dates after which their instant film will no longer be available. Check out the link below for the info on when the film cartridges for your camera will die the true death. [via Geeksugar] Read More

  • Orb Ball Recorder: Not that kind of ball recorder

    Apparently you simply drop an SD card into this bugger, press a button, and take pictures. It’s designed to fit almost anywhere — they recommend the eyeball of a mannequin — and records up to six hours of video on a 2GB card. Sadly it lasts only 3 hours on battery but that’s enough to roll it through the bus station for some hot upskirt action. Wait… hot… Read More

  • Review: Olympus SP-570UZ

    Reviewing point-and-shoot cameras for you guys, no matter how complex, is like writing about light beer for a wine magazine. What can you say but that it goes down smooth and tastes great? Can you talk about the vat-grown malty flavor? Can you talk about the bottle and clever spelling of “lite?” Absolutely, but you and I both know we’re doing each other a disservice. Me… Read More

  • What's 5K anyway? RED Cameras resolution comparison chart


    So maybe you’re excited about Red’s sudden announcement of two new cameras earlier today (the 5K Epic and the 3K Scarlet) but you’re not really sure why. What are these “K”s everyone is talking about, and why would anyone care whether they had two, three, or a hundred? Well, Red’s handy chart above should clear things up for you. You can see how basically… Read More

  • Preorder your Canon Rebel XSi, get hugz from me


    The newest iteration of Canon’s Rebel X__ series is available for pre-order. I’m actually considering upgrading my Rebel XT to this model, the XSi/450D because the changes are actually significant (more useful pixels, live view, bigger LCD, etc). However, I’m not really interested in paying for a useless lens along with my camera, so I’m going to go with the body… Read More

  • World's tiniest (non-secret) HD camcorder


    I’m guessing the FBI has slightly more advanced versions of things like this, although the tiny Toshiba IK-HD1 is being promoted as being perfect for Homeland Security. Do those guys really need more cameras? It’s got a full-color 3CCD 1/3″ sensor, outputting at 1920×1080, though for some reason it’s 1080i. It’s bigger than a bouillon cube but smaller than… Read More
