Sony HX9V Review @ Imaging Resource

Fri July 15, 2011

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V

[The Sony HX9V] delivered good-quality stills at sensitivities up to ISO 800 and exhibited impressive autofocus and tracking for a non-DSLR. [...] However, enthusiasts should note that noise suppression on the HX9V is quite aggressive, often resulting in a watercolor look.

We’ve added a new Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9? [QuickPrice Check] Review to our Reviews Matrix.

Note: If you are ordering from Amazon.com, be aware that they seem to be confused between the HX9 model (without GPS) and the Hx9V model (with GPS). If you click thru to their page from the link above, it is not clear exactly which model is being offered.

Imaging Resource has published their review of the Sony DSC-HX9V, a 16.2MP resolution (1/2.3-in. “Exmor R” CMOS Sensor) ultra zoom digital camera with 16x wide-angle optical zoom (26-416mm equiv.), GPS + Compass and Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, 3.0-in. LCD (921k-dot), iAuto, P, M, Easy Shooting, iSCN, in-camera High Dynamic Range (HDR), Intelligent Sweep Panorama, 3D still image and 3D Sweep Panorama, Dynamic Range Optimizer, Continuous Shooting 10fps (16.2MP full resolution), Background Defocus, Handheld Twilight Mode, Smile Shutter Technology, Anti-Motion Blur Mode, Anti-blink Function, and Full HD 1080/60p Movie.

How To Shoot Film and Video at the same time

Fri July 15, 2011

Doug Mills, Times Two from NYTimes Lens on Vimeo.

Doug Mills is a staff photographer in the Washington bureau of The New York Times and has come up with a way how he can shoot video and stills at the same time. He simply mounts his video camera atop his still camera.

As the video shows, the results are not bad at all, though the contraption must make for a heavy load.

I do believe that as DSLRs improve we’ll be able to shoot video and get a stills from any frame of that video. You can do that with some compact digicam already.

Amazing 3D Mapping Projection Looks Too Real For Comfort

Fri July 15, 2011


From alphonsnet

3D Projection Mapping animates stationary objects using 3D video. 3D mapping designers work like artists, mapping video to buildings that they are projecting on and then bring the whole thing alive with 3D effects. As this video starts, a dove flies around (a 3D projection), a hand appears, a tree grows, the building crumbles,….

iPhone 4 Captures Beautiful Guitar String Oscillations

Thu July 14, 2011


From justkylevids

We just got my son’s guitar new strings and he learned how to change them and tune them at the store. But have you ever seen the guitar strings oscillate? Impossible you say without high speed video? How about with the iPhone 4?

I guess you could do this with any smartphone or camera (if you can slip it into the guitar, short of removing all the strings), but take a look. It’s beautiful (sort of)!

Someone should make a music video using this technique and with an appropriate background for the music, say a blue sky with coconut tree branches swaying in the wind?

Is Photojournalism Still A Viable Career?

Thu July 14, 2011


From jhawksley08

Is it still worth doing a degree in photojournalism? Where is the work going to come from? Well, if photojournalism is what you are interested in, head over to robgalbraith for a great article on Joel Hawsksley who has only two quarters left before graduating from Ohio University (OU) with a degree in photojournalism.

Meanwhile (and here’s the missing advice for most would be photojournalists) he is already working as staff photographer for the OU Athletic Department and as official photographer for OU’s marching band. He also does freelance assignments whenever they are available. In addition, he does internships at newspapers (one at The Grand Rapids (MI) Press last year and currently at The Seattle Times). As such, his work is already widely known so when he goes knocking on door, he will already have an impressive portfolio to show.

He shoots about 100 athletic events a year and get to use pretty sophisticated photographic equipment. It helps that Nikon sponsors the OU photojournalism department.

Where to after OU? A newspaper gig is not out of the question but Hawksley is eyeing a marketing organization.

Printable Antenna Powers Electronics

Thu July 14, 2011

Radio and television transmitters, cell phone networks and satellite communications systems transmit ambient in the air around us and researchers at the Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering have discovered how to scavenge and harness that energy to power small electronic devices. Inkjet printers are used to print these self-powered wireless sensors. Practical uses include chemical, biological, heat and stress sensing for defense and industry, radio-frequency identification (RFID) tagging for manufacturing and shipping, and monitoring tasks in many fields including communications and power usage.
