Cool Stuff — November 24, 2013

Welcome to Cool Stuff, a recurring feature where we post our favorite links, including our favorite articles and how-tos, videos, images and more.

  • We begin this edition of Cool Stuff with an update about one of our favorite new cameras: The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. This diminutive thing can now shoot RAW! We’ve got some footage in the editing bay now, so stay tuned for more on this.
  • If you’ve hung around on this blog long enough, you know that we love our timelapse videos. Here’s one made from 100,000 photos taken around the world.
  • We did say we love our timelapse videos, didn’t we? This is from someone who only picked up doing these about a year ago.

  • There are some videos that are just… well… you have to watch them. They may come off as slightly pretentious, but to be honest, we’re all thinking the same thing: “I wish I could do stuff like that…”Platinum Palladium Printing with Leica M Monochrom from Luís Oliveira Santos on Vimeo.
  • We close off this edition with some awesome words of wisdom from Mike Newell, director of such diverse films as Donnie Brasco and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Warning: #13 is NSFW.
