You Can Connect Your Game Boy Camera to Modern Printers Using This $20 Adapter

Despite its utterly awful image quality (maxing out at a resolution of just 160x144 pixels), the Game Boy Camera was still a popular add-on, thanks in part to a cheap accessory that could print out tiny photos. But finding paper stock for the Game Boy Printer is no easy task these days, so Vaclav Mach created a $20…Read more...

Frozen lake sunrise.

Time: 6:35. Actual sunrise time: 6:37. [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

What does it mean that I put up a picture of a beautiful sunrise and the first comment contains the words "full panic mode"?

1. It means that Trump Derangement Syndrome has burst out into a raging pandemic that includes the coronavirus and anything else that comes along. (In the car ride home from my sunrise run, the CNN announcer at the top of the hour said, breathlessly, that yesterday the stock market took its biggest one-day plunge ever, "12 thousand points," before correcting it to "12 hundred points." We're supposed to feel as though it's 12 thousand, when it's only 12 hundred. Add a zero to every number to feel...

Lady Gaga hops aboard the #shotoniphone train with her newest crazy music video “Stupid Love”

Apple sure is going all out on their iPhone advertising campaigns right now, aren’t they? After a fairly non-challenging (from a technical standpoint) Selena Gomez music video and the incredible “Snowbrawl” by John Wick director, David Leitch, now it turns out that Lady Gaga’s much anticipated new single, “Stupid Love” was also shot entirely using […] The post Lady Gaga hops aboard the #shotoniphone train with her newest crazy music video “Stupid Love” appeared first on DIY Photography.

“The Grand Tour” comically illustrated three types of wildlife photographers, and they nailed it

There are different types of photographers, that’s for sure. I don’t know if there are only two of them or as many as 30, but one can certainly take a comical twist on the differences between photographers. This is exactly what guys from The Grand Tour did. In this video, Richard Hammond, Jeremy Clarkson and […] The post “The Grand Tour” comically illustrated three types of wildlife photographers, and they nailed it appeared first on DIY Photography.

Adobe Did a “Panorama Fest” Post and It’s So Good!

Josh Bury did a how-to post on Adobe’s own blog about Panoramas and it’s really, really good — so well written, illustrated, and just plain helpful (shout out to LRKT commenter/LRguru Lyle Stavast for the heads up). It’s part of Adobe’s “From the ACR Team” series, (ACR being the acronym for “Adobe Camera Raw” which is part of Lightroom — it’s Lightroom’s Develop Module, which is Photoshop’s Camera Raw, or vice versa). Anyway, Josh’s post doesn’t just cover Panos but also Lightroom’s HDR...

this was a good week

This was a good week! Here’s why:• I washed my car this week. And if you knew how long it had been, you’d be throwing confetti my way for finally having done it.• I’m missing the ocean something fierce these days; these photographs therefore absolutely delight me.• I love my friend Lola’s words on how to be confident (and her photos of a lion that make her point).• And speaking of photographers, these are the three types o...

Bokeh Is Not a Stable Characteristic of a Lens

I ran across a nice example yesterday of the same lens exhibiting both "good" and "bad" bokeh. I was looking through pictures taken with the old Olympus OM-Zuiko 50mm ƒ/1.8, a fine little lens (identical in design to an earlier generation of Leica Summicron, by the way) which is widely available for very little dosh. Take a look first at this lovely portrait by Konstantin Konduktorov, taken with the old lens adapted to a digital DSLR. Although there isn't "lots" of bokeh evident in the picture (...

Food delivered traditionally by bicycle in Tokyo

In a world of delivery motorbikes and Uber Eats bags, the sight of food being transported the traditional way is an increasingly rare sight. One only really seen in certain parts of the city. But just like the old adage about buses, after waiting ages to see one, two sometimes come along at once.

Canon has patented a new ultra-wide 13-21mm f/2.8 lens for EOS R cameras

A new Canon patent application has surfaced, detailing a new 13-21mm f/2.8 RF mount lens for the full-frame Canon EOS R mirrorless system. There’s no word that this lens will actually see a production line, and Canon does already have a 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM lens for the RF mount, so I think it might […] The post Canon has patented a new ultra-wide 13-21mm f/2.8 lens for EOS R cameras appeared first on DIY Photography.

How many Facebook photography group members does it take to change a lightbulb?

This came to us via an anonymous source who said they saw it posted in a group they’re in on Facebook.

The Smithsonian Puts 2.8 Million High-Res Images Online and Into the Public Domain

No matter how many public institutions you visit in a day—schools, libraries, museums, or the dreaded DMV—you may still feel like privatized services are closing in. And if you’re a fan of national parks and public lands, you’re keenly aware they’re at risk of being eaten up by developers and energy companies. The commons are shrinking, a tragic fact that is hardly inevitable but, as Matto Mildenberger argues at Scientific American, the result of some very narrow ideas. But we can take h...

DxO launches the Nik Collection v2.5 with new film simulations and Affinity Photo compatibility

The Nik Collection has had a pretty turbulent and uncertain journey over the last few years. Google acquired it in 2012 when they bought out Nik Software to get their hands on Snapseed, but they didn’t do much with it. In 2017, Google abandoned it and had no plans to continue it beyond Adobe CC15.

The state of the photo industry

What does this mean for the photo industry? In the past couple of years, we have seen a lot of interesting things happen in the photography industry. First, we saw Nikon stop selling parts to camera repair shops. Forcing all repairs to go through Nikon’s own repair centers. Then we saw a bunch of companies drop out of major trade shows like Photokina and PhotoPlus. Companies are having their products copied and sold cheap, forcing other companies like Dynalite to close their doors...
