Cool Stuff – January 9, 2012Cool 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.
- Don’t know if you guys heard, but there’s a new Nikon camera out. No biggie.
- Of course, like it wasn’t enough to announce the D4, Nikon’s site accidentally teased the D800, too.
On the subject of new gear, CES kicks off today, and there’s a number of new items of note. The one garnering most of the attention right now is Canon’s new G1x, a big (almost APS-C-sized) sensor point and shoot.
- Fuji hasn’t announced it – yet – but the specs and pics of the upcoming X-Pro1 are all over the place. As usual, PetaPixel does a great job of rounding stuff up.
- Switching gears for a bit, how about this for new time-lapse tech: move your camera through 3D space – without physically moving it. Video of the how-to below.
- Here’s a neat little app to create stereographic projections (hit the link for a sample).
- Lighting geeks, listen up. Popular Photography has a nice piece on understanding Flash Falloff on their site.
- While you’re lugging around your new D4/1Dx/Fuji/whatever, remember to pay a bit of attention to your health, too. Kevin Kubota talks about his experience with photography-related pain on his site.
- And finally, to top things off with a bit of humor, via FStoppers, a trick that every fashion photographer ought to know about slimming models.
