Warning. Viewing these photos may make you want to A) Leave your desk job to pursue a career in extreme sports B) Jump in a kayak and plummet down a waterfall or C) Buy a fearless-looking, jet-skiing labradoodle (see last photo). As long as that's out of the way, may we now present you with another amazing set of crazy perspective photos taken with a GoPro…
Chances are that if you're into extreme sports, you already know about GoPro, the company that makes small, wearable, waterproof and shockproof cameras. Founder Nick Woodman was inspired to start a company dedicated to adventure photography after a 2002 surfing trip to Australia. Hoping to capture incredible images, he soon discovered that…
Just how wonderful would it be to come across one of these installations by Brazilian artist André Feliciano? The artist creates whimsical artworks that look like normal gardens from afar. Look a little closer, however, and you'll discover that you're not looking at regular flowers but "camera flowers" that are in full bloom!
This will be either the most overhyped piece of camera technology in modern times or the start of something revolutionary. (I'm hoping it's the later.) About four months ago, Lytro announced that they were building a consumer digital camera that claimed it will be the biggest technological jump since we started talking megapixels over 20 years ago.
It's been a few days since news broke out about a camera-stealing monkey with a wicked grin. We believe it was Telegraph who first told us about photographer David Slater's recent trip to a national park in North Sulawesi, Indonesia where he left his camera… Continue
Here are some great photos taken by Abelardo Morell using the camera obscura technique. To create this kind of photograph, he covers all windows with plastic in order to achieve total darkness. He then cuts one small hole in the materials that he uses to cover the windows. An inverted image of the view outside then floods onto the walls in the room. He focuses the large-format camera on the… Continue
Check out this mini camera that's all the rage in Japan. The Biscuit camera shoots up to 300 stills, video, and is available in 3 flavors: chocolate, wheat, and strawberry. High res is 640x480, and the video is AVI with no sound. "It's like having a little thumbnail cam on your keychain."…
In its documentary Extraordinary Animals In The Womb, National Geographic captured rare highly detailed images of animals at various stages of gestation. Now you can see fetal dog, elephants, penguins, and dolphins still inside the womb.
Using advances in scanning and imaging technology to trace the gestational paths of animals outside the human family, the documentary footage is actually a combination of digital…
For those of you who love the nostalgic vibe of Polaroid pics, I present to you this sneak peek. Polaroid's raging back (not just with Lady Gaga but) with their re-release of the old instant film cameras and their Color 600 instant film later this year. First up is a completely redesigned, modern version of the Polaroid OneStep camera, the PIC 1000.
Sony just announced news of Party-shot - an innovative camera dock that pans 360 degrees and tilts 24 degrees. The IPT-DS1 Party-shot ($150; September 2009) is compatible with the new DSC-WX1 and DSC-TX1 Cyber-shot camera.

I'm sure many people like me over here are photography-savvy without being geeks in the matter.
The thing is even though the marketing department of the top camera companies want you to think that megapixels is the holy grail of digital camera and that's it, it's actually not the case at all, in the contrary. Most people will need 4-7 Megapixels, and the more the pixels, the more the camera has to use digital processing to erase the… Continue
Every once in awhile, you come across a Flickr set that completely takes your breath away. The photographer captures a beautiful snapshot of a perfect moment, where everything aligns just perfectly. Thanks to Norikazu Yamamura, we get to see the world through his eyes and get to travel to far away places we could only dream of.… Continue
Where would you like to wake up tomorrow?
fiftypeopleonequestion.com asked that one question to, you guessed it, 50 people. Brilliant! So far, the site has posted the filmed responses for Brooklyn (video above) and London (below).
Now I'm all about the bling but within reason, people! Just because we can doesn't mean we should! No one should ever own this or I will reach through my computer and personally shake you. (Chris Rock reference. We don't hit or slap, we shake.)
Do I care that you have 2 megapixel photo and 1.3 megapixel video resolution, an integrated flash and are able… Continue
