Definitely don’t throw out that old Leica gathering dust in your attic! Or any other film camera you’ve got. Considering today’s super-sensitive sensors with an ever-growing megapixel count, the old analogs might look like dinosaurs riding a modern retro wave, but they actually can serve better than you think.
We see the world in color, and cameras can reliably record the colors we see. Despite this, a black and white conversion will often make a photo better. When does black and white pay off?
The emergence of the imaging app has helped lift mobile photography to new heights and offered the smartphone shooter a plethora of new tricks and twists for their photo-taking pleasure.
For well over 100 years now photographers have been using their cameras as instruments for change, as a way to see inside our souls, as way to take us all over the world…and beyond.
Funny how the smartphone category has evolved from being a product that was initially sold as a cell phone that also took pictures to clearly now being a camera that also makes phone calls.
And, after a few starts and stops, VR is now officially becoming a big part of the consumer imaging world.
And now time for something completely different. How about a photo service that features a camera you rent that sees the pictures you take whisked off to the cloud, edited and then only your best ones are sent back to smartphone for you to decide to have printed or turned into a photobook.
Last week we took a look at some of the more unique, if a bit less ballyhooed, imaging fare from the 2017 CES. This time around we’re focusing on the goodies displayed by the more prominent photographic companies that exhibited at the big annual Las Vegas shindig.
After a week spent dodging drones and robots, trying on countless wearable gizmos and gawking at some pretty amazing TVs, the 2017 CES could leave fella too exhausted to soldier on. But alas, there were some fairly incredible imaging-related gadgets I wanted to see…I just needed to hunt them down.
