Cool Stuff – Feb 20-27, 2012Company News Cool Stuff
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.
- Photoshop Touch for Android tablets has been out since last year, but they didn’t get any buzz until they released it for iOS, apparently. It’s out now, for $9.99.
- Popular photo-sharing website 500px got a whole new look, and a new marketplace for photographers to sell their work.
- Speaking of makeovers, looks like Flickr is due to get one soon as well.
- And speaking of beautiful things, time-lapse photography has turned into an addiction of sorts for us. Here’s the latest, called “Temporal Distortion,” by Randy Halverson.

- But wait! There’s more! Jarbas Agnelli adds a nice twist to his timelapse of Carnival in Rio de Janeiro by using a tilt-shift lens. The results are… well, see for yourself.

- More prettiness: A new venture, called SeaView, aims to do for the ocean what Google Street View did for land. Check out some amazing imagery at the SeaView website.
- And just in case you thought we were going to end this list with just pretty things, we’ll switch gears to a business topic and mention that the folks at Photoshelter have released a free workbook on SEO (Search Engine Optimization) for photographers.
That’s it for this week’s Cool Stuff. If you have something you think should be included, let us know! Email us at [email protected]
Weekly Recap – October 17, 2011Company News
Welcome to the Weekly Recap. Today’s post recaps new and newsworthy items related to photography from around the web for the week ending on October 16.
- Facebook releases iPad app: Why should photographers care? Well, apparently, it makes your photos bigger. And bigger, as they say, is better.
- Thailand floods, Nikon affected: The floods in Thailand have reached Nikon’s factories there, the company says. Price hikes on Nikon products to follow, rumors say.
- Everyone – including 500px – has an app: Just a few days ago, a third-party company released an iPhone app for 500px.com, the popular photo sharing site. Now, the company has its own app for the iPad.
- Ouch: This is why everyone needs to wear a GoPro. Yes, we know. It’s textbook schadenfreude.
- New Canon and Nikon cameras soon: From the “We’ll believe it when we see it,” category.
- And we ask again: Fuji, will it focus? Fuji announces pricing and availability of the “Baby X100″.
- More from the “Want it!” category: One camera plate to rule them all.
- Film is going away. Again. Really, this time: Chalk this under the “Haven’t we heard this before?” department? For the record, I still shoot some film.
- Kickstarter, part 1: Not just for cool iPhone and iPod accessories, Kickstarter can also fund some awesome photographic projects. National Geographic photographer Gerd Ludwig goes to Chernobyl on a crowdfunded budget.
- Kickstarter, part 2: They asked for $20,000. They got just under half a million. Here come the Cineskates.
