Misc links - Jan 2011

Postby DanielA on Sun Jan 30, 2011 9:41 pm

While trawling the interweb I occasionally bump into interesting photography links which I think others might be interested in but don't deserve a post of their own, so I thought I'd summarise what I've seen in the last month. Enjoy:

Photo Tips:

Camera flash soft box
http://www.ikeahackers.net/2011/01/came ... t-box.html
Since there has been some discussions recently about softboxes, here is a nifty one using a box from Ikea. I think the box name listed is incorrect, it looks like should be a Skubb Box.

Make Light Painting Circles With Light
http://diyphotography.net/make-lighting ... with-light
A neat trick of using a paint roller to make perfect light circles. The author's photo stream is really worth viewing: Dennis Calvert. [via LifeHacker]

What to do when you break your camera
http://www.digital-photography-school.c ... our-camera
Some sensible suggestions to follow when you damage your camera. I'm sure we all know this already. [via LifeHacker]


Flash bulb at 1052fps
http://fstoppers.com/what-your-cameras- ... t-1052fps/
Just 13 seconds of an old style flash bulb burning in slow-mo. Worth seeing in HD. [via Petapixel via Gizmodo]

Lightning Captured by X-Ray Camera
http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news ... echnology/
A 680kg X-ray camera shooting ten million images per second sounds great... but at only 0.00003 megapixels (30 pixels). :( [via Gizmodo]

The Internet being surprising:

eBay auction of a battered old camera for US$104,000
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 740wt_1705
That does seem expensive. The Leica MP-36 was apparently owned by Leif Engberg. [via PetaPixel via Gizmodo]

Camera speakers
Another case of people making things in the shape of a DSLR. Why would you do this? [via Gadget4all via GadgetSin via ChipChick via Gizmodo]

If you find these interesting let me know and I'll keep an eye out in the future.

Nikon D4, D2Xs, D70, Nikkors and Sigmas lenses from 10 to 400mm

thanks for that

I will add one of my own, which is a project that I would like to try at some stage

The softbox link might come handy for some of the keen attendees of the portrait seminar. :wink: Or maybe they will just visit the Profoto website... :mrgreen:
