The Luminous Landscape: A Redux Critique of Contemporary Camera Design.

The prevalent observation that Fuji’s X cameras look like Leicas, is somewhat undermined by this juxtaposition. There’s a lot of Zorki gestalt in there too. Maybe too much.”  Enjoyment within.

ArtDaily: First auction devoted to vernacular photography at Swann Galleries.

Among the sale highlights are 19 photographs related to the Wright Brothers, most taken by Orville Wright, which depict the brothers’ No. 2 glider, a subsequent, heavier-than-air craft flying at Sims Field and close-ups of machinery.” Nice pic. Sorta gives another meaning to ‘fly by wire’ ...

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.

multee: Type-2 Carabiner.

Cute, but I’d still buy the real thing.  Since the ‘70’s, I’ve found carabiners one of the handiest damned things to have around. Dig in any of my bags, you’ll find one or two. Esp. D-ring locking ‘biners. Surprised, however, than none of the major climbing outfits have come up with an integrated keyring (at least, not that I’ve noticed).

ArtDaily: Nan Goldin’s first major exhibition in Rome opens at Gagosian Gallery.

“The Greek term scopophilia literally means ‘love of looking,’ but also refers to the erotic pleasure derived from gazing at images of the body. Goldin’s Scopophilia is both a slide-show and an ongoing photographic series, begun in 2010 when she was given private access to the Louvre Museum every Tuesday. During these privileged sojourns, she wandered and photographed freely throughout the museum’s renowned collections of painting and sculpture. ” What a privilege to enjoy.

PDN Online: What Photographers Need to Know About Model Releases.

For example, using an image of someone that suggests they support a non-profit company, or a religious or political point of view, may require their permission, even though no profit is made, nor does it involve a commercial product or service. Even editorial uses can result in a lawsuit if the manner in which someone is portrayed causes harm to their personal or professional life.”  Very useful article. Bookmarked.
