The Kodak Moment Is Soon Gone

Tue October 4, 2011

Eastman Kodak once enjoyed 80% market share for film. Then it faced stiff competition from Fujifilm. It was among the first in introducing a consumer digital camera but did not pursue its first-mover advantage. It has not made a profit since 2007 and revenues has dwindled for the last decade. In 2004, the company was removed from the Dow Jones Industrial Average after 74 years on the blue chip index. In 2010, it was removed from the S&P 500.

Even though it insists it won’t file bankruptcy, a share of Kodak now costs about $1.34. It has hired the law firm Jones Day – which is known as bankruptcy and restructuring experts.

For me, Kodak’s decline was visually represented by the current logo introduced in 2006. It was a simplistic and uninspiring logo and looked cheap.

For those who have never seen it, pictured above is the old logo that once proudly represented some of the best films used by photographers around the world.

Adobe Photoshop Touch Comes To the Tablet

Tue October 4, 2011

The Adobe Photoshop Touch allows you to create images with simple finger gestures. Easily combine multiple photos into layered images, edit them, add professional effects, and easily share from your tablet. Currently, Photoshop Touch runs on the Android OS, but Adobe plans an iOS release soon so you can run it on the iPad 2.

It supports extracting a subject from its background, layers, filter effects, and social sharing. You can share your images to Facebook and view comments right within the app.

With Photoshop Touch, you can start to sketch an idea in the field, then sync your files with Adobe Creative Cloud so they’re available for further editing in Photoshop.

The World’s Most Powerful Telescope Peers Into Space

Tue October 4, 2011

You are looking at the first image returned by ALMA, the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array, to be eventually comprised of 66 radio antennas on the Chajnantor plateau in northern Chile (though currently only a third completed), at an elevation of 5,000 meters. Its first image of the Antennae Galaxies (a pair of colliding galaxies) reveals a view of the Universe that cannot be seen at all by visible-light and infrared telescopes: the clouds of dense cold gas from which new stars form.

Baby Elephant Seal Cuddles To Photographer

Tue October 4, 2011


From rte

Photojournalist Charlie Bird travels through Antartica following the route of explorer Tom Crean’s final expedition alongside Ernest Shackleton aboard the Endurance in 1914-15. In this video, he meets elephant seals and while photographing them, two baby elephant seals approach and “cuddle” to him.

It seems more like it wanted the camera to take a picture with.

Scale A Skyscraper With Your Bare Hands

Tue October 4, 2011


From GooDok13

If you’ve watched those real-life spidermen climb skyscrapers with their bare hands (well, gloved actually), no ropes, and ever wondered what it would be like to do so, then this video will give you an idea even though you’ll be climbing using metal rung stairs instead of holding on for dear life onto slippery metal or concrete beams.

Warning: it’s not for the faint of heart (I get dizzy just looking down a balcomy) and it’ll be more realistic if you watch it standing on one foot (just kidding).

Studie Zwei

Tue October 4, 2011

Matthias Heiderich sees form and geometry in the daily scenes around him. The shadow of a streetlamp projected onto the wall of a building, the bold colors of a handrail, the repetitive nature of many of the design elements in our modern architecture — all lend to making Heiderich’s photography interesting.

If your photography has become stale, or simply to exercise your photographic eye, try to see the interesting composition in the daily: patterns, shadows, colors and especially geometric shapes. They’re there, all around you; you just have to look.

15 Ways the iPad Goes to Work @ CIO

Mon October 3, 2011

Every piece of successful technology starts out somewhat as a fad, steadily gets traction, entrenches itself and then people wonder how they got along without it before that. So it is with the iPad — or tablet in general. So far, it is the Apple iPad that is leading the wide acceptance of tablets but it won’t be before long that tablets will be pervasive and used in every level of society for all sorts of things.

I still remember the first Apple II, the IBM PC and the Internet. In each and every case, there was a time between early adoption and mass adoption when people wondered just why they needed it.

Here’s 15 ways the iPad goes to work in real life, making it easier, faster, better for those using it.

Elmsford NY – October 3, 2011 – Leading the way in carrying solutions for over 30 years, Tenba announces another expansion of its popular Discovery collection of lightweight professional-level camera bags. Tenba has added the new Top Load and Photo/Laptop Messenger bags to further broaden a product line that has been designed with active outdoor photographers in mind. The Discovery Top Load is a clean and simple carrying solution for a single DSLR camera body with a mid-size zoom lens, while the Discovery Messenger fits a larger multi-lens camera system plus a tablet or laptop computer up to 13 inches.

“In search of comfort and convenience, photographers are carrying less equipment now than in previous years,” said Jan Lederman, President of MAC Group. “All-In-One zoom lenses, tablets and ultra-portable laptops are allowing people to significantly decrease the size and weight of the gear that hangs off their shoulders, and the Discovery Top Load and Messenger bags are designed to carry those smaller systems.”
