Welcome to Cool Stuff, a weekly feature where we post our favorite links from the past week, including our favorite articles and how-tos, videos, images and more.
- We start this week with a dizzying look down from 1,776 feet up – specifically, from the spire that sits at the top of the new World Trade Center tower. Say it with me now: OMGOMGOMGOMG!!!!
- The guys at DigitalRev are back at it again. This time, they take to the streets of London with two cameras per photographer — one film and one digital.
- This video is all kinds of awesome. Alex Chacon rides from Alaska to Argentina in 500 days, and documents the whole thing. Here it is, condensed down to 9 minutes.
- The guys over at DIYPhotography.net have a really nice rundown of what it takes to shoot tethered – and why you would do it to begin with.
- And finally, we end this list with a bit of inspiration. Ian Ruhter talks with our friend Chase Jarvis about life, work, and what drives him.
A couple of quick company-related cool things.
- A number of the photographers working here at BorrowLenses.com were featured on the SnapKnot wedding website. If you haven’t already, you should really check the site out.
- The most diminutive SLR we’ve ever seen is here. Rent the Canon Rebel SL1 now.
