Watch a photographer’s Blackmagic Pocket 4K become home to a colony of ants

Some of us have had ants in the kitchen, or maybe we had to deal with these little creatures while camping. But have you ever had your camera swarmed by ants? Dakota McLearn was unpleasantly surprised recently when he saw that his Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K had become home to a colony of ants.

The Maxima 7 flicker-free LED light is a 1200 PAR HMI equivalent with 700 Watts of power

LED lighting technology has come very far over the last decade. It’s replaced the more traditional incandescent “hot lights” we used to see in video, movie and photography studios. The Maxima 7 is a new 5600K Chip-on-board (COB) LED light that’s the equivalent of a 1.2K HMI that lets you pretty much recreate the sun […] The post The Maxima 7 flicker-free LED light is a 1200 PAR HMI equivalent with 700 Watts of power appeared first on DIY Photography.

Can you still take photos even with a cracked lens?

None of us would like to have our gear damaged. Unfortunately, sh*t happens, and a moment of inattention can have you end up with a broken lens. This is what happened to Benj Haisch, leaving him with a pretty obvious crack on his lens. But could it still be used? You would be surprised. Benj […] The post Can you still take photos even with a cracked lens? appeared first on DIY Photography.

3 ways the Fuji X100 changed the camera industry forever

The Fujifilm X100 was the single most impactful camera of the 2010’s. I’ve seen folks say the same about the Sony A7/A7R, Samsung Galaxy NX1, and various micro 4/3 cameras. But I will argue that the Fujifilm X100 delivered a bigger bang than all of them combined. As you’re about to learn, it changed the […] The post 3 ways the Fuji X100 changed the camera industry forever appeared first on DIY Photography.

Along with a new MFT lens, Olympus has also announced the OM-D E-M1 Mark III camera. It’s a successor of the OM-D E-M1 Mark II, released in 2016. But other than improved in-body image stabilization and dedicated AF mode for the starry sky, this camera doesn’t seem to any major improvements.

Watch how this anti-drone system takes a DJI down with a laser

We’ve seen different kinds of anti-drone technology so far: from eagles (thankfully, that was canceled) to an aerial battering ram. And now there’s the Drone Dome laser, developed by an Israel-based company Rafael Advanced Defense Systems (or just Rafael). It uses a high power laser beam to track and take down hostile drones, even a […] The post Watch how this anti-drone system takes a DJI down with a laser appeared first on DIY Photography.

This is why you should be worried about infrared light with your camera

Light is something that all photographers and filmmakers need to master if they want to become good at their craft. The problem is, our eyes don’t see light the same way that our cameras do.
