Flightclub/Jalopnik: The Awesome R/C Plane Video That Pissed Off The FAA.

Hmmmph. I suspect proof skills/training may end up being required, along with insurance, for use over dense public areas. Most R/C’s don’t have cages around their propellers, and can easily cause personal injury. Imagine the outrage when a newbie takes a $600 drone purchased from Amazon and flies it over a local playground, loses control, and injures a child … all rendered in spectacular color footage.

Project Yosemite.

More time lapse (when will we get our fill?), but nice. One thing about time-lapse; you’ve got oodles of spare time to make still photographs while tending to the motion-graphics rig.

The Coolist: Chinon Bellami HD-1 Digital Super 8 Camera.

The new Chinon Bellami HD-1 Digital Super 8 can shoot full HD video through a flexible set of available lenses.  It can shoot 1080p video at 30fps, a standard resolution at an admittedly less-than-standard frame rate.  Those who might scoff at the lack of 60fps recording will want to consider just what this camera is – it’s retro in design and functionality but in a digital capacity.”  Speaking generally (not specifically to this item), I understand the appeal of retro design; however I will not pay a premium for a creation with significant feature limitations.

The Economist: Drone journalism - Eyes in the skies.

In the past few months drones shot the most revealing footage of the protests that toppled Viktor Yanukovych, its corrupt president. They have also offered a bird’s-eye view of civil conflict in Thailand, Venezuela and elsewhere. They let journalists capture scenes that previously would have put their lives in danger, and made it harder for governments to lie.”  When they start flying over private property and shooting what they find … that’s when the #%@$@ is going to hit the fan.

Youtube: Garry Winogrand - Photographer.

Interesting. He gets away with shooting so much, because he feigns having difficulties with his camera. But look at how many images he takes (he’s winding constantly). They don’t show him reloading that Leica at all, but every 36, he’s gotta stop and reload.
