Cheating At Cards In Casino Goes High Tech With Tiny Spy Camera Hidden In Sleeves

Mon August 8, 2011

Digital imaging technology has “graduated” from interesting to practical as a gang member apparently used a tiny spy camera hidden in his sleeves to capture the order of cards in a card game. It’s all pretty high tech, involving transfering the images to a PC, analyzing it in slow motion to figure out the order of the cards in the deck and relaying the information back to the members waiting at the table.

The Anatomy of a Skateboarding Fall Captured in Ultra Slow Motion 1000fps

Mon August 8, 2011


From ashomsky

There was a time when only scientists could watch what actually happens when we fall or hit a golf ball, a baseball, etc. It required sophisticated and expensive high speed cameras to film the event and then play it back at regular speed for extra slow motion. For example, this video of people falling from their skateboards is filmed at 500fps to 1000fps with a Redlake N3 high speed camera (which is priced around $30K).

However, if you are on a budget, you can get a high speed digicam (e.g. Casio Exilim EX-ZR100 [QuickPrice Check]) for a couple of hundred dollars ($299.99) and be your own sports coach (though the image size will be quite small at 224×64 pixels).

Sharpen Your Wildlife Photography Skills… at your local zoo!

Mon August 8, 2011

Every Summer, my family takes the obligatory trip to the Toronto Zoo. This year, we went a bit too early, but did not have to fight the crowd. The “wild” animals exhibits are often a letdown because, unless you get to an exhibit when it is feeding time, you are most probably going to be able to catch only a glimpse of the animals sleeping in the shade and not doing too much. The one tiger we did see was pacing around, looking a bit crazed, and we felt pretty sad overall that we could not simply watch the animals in their natural habitat via hidden cameras. I suspect the zoologists of the future would be doing just that: studying the animals in the real wild using technology such as camera-equipped drone airplanes, hidden robotic cams, bird cams, etc.

Meanwhile, we have the local zoo and Jeff Wignall over at Black Star has a great idea for those who want to practice their “wildlife” photography: do it at the zoo! It’s not quite the same, yet similar.

You’d probably want a telephoto lens here to isolate the animal from its not-too-wild surroundings.

Appcam Camera Concept has 1, 2, 3, no, count ‘em, 8 command dials

Mon August 8, 2011

Billed by its designer as “the new operation system for professional cameras,” the Appcam is really a camera concept that features at least 8 “professional mechanical scroll wheels.” As the above picture shows, there’s a scrollwheel for setting ISO, one for WB, a third one for Image Quality, etc. for a total of 8 (there’s one more at the top you can’t see here). The goal is to access the camera menu as little as possible.

What is interesting is that the designer quotes Ken Rockwell as motivation for this design. I wonder what Ken think?

What do you think? Do we need a dial for every important setting?
