The UNDFIND One Bag V2 Photography Set Review

Fri March 30, 2012

UNDFIND One Bag V2 Photography Set

UNDFIND One Bag V2 Photography Set

Redesigning the photo bag. For today’s fashion conscious amateur and professional photographers, the tell-tale cooler box photo bag design is too uncomfortable and just plain ugly — and I’ve been avoiding using a photo bag for the longest time. In fact, I’ve been carrying my camera and lenses in a student backpack (with some judicious padding), both for carrying ease and to hide the fact from would-be thieves that I have expensive camera gear inside. Now, that’s all about to change as I look at the handsome messenger bag lying on my desk and that just arrived this very morning.

Ubi-Camera Takes Photos With Your Fingers As Viewfinder

Thu March 29, 2012


From Diginfonews

The Ubi-Camera is a minimalistic digital camera with no viewfinder and no LCD. To frame a scene, you use your fingers to create a frame. The Ubi-Camera slips onto your index finger, you form a frame with your fingers, resting the thumb of your other hand on the camera shutter release button. By moving the camera closer to your face or away from it, the camera’s range sensor determines whether you’re taking a wide-angle shot (closer to your face) or a tele shot (away from your face). However, since the camera has a fixed focal-length, the zooming is digitally done on the PC.

The Ubi-camera is currently in development mode and is physically thethered to a PC. The developers hope to render it wireless in the future. As well, the range senor uses infrared light and sometimes has difficulty measuring the distance from the camera to your face. The developers hope to use more accurate face recognition software in a later version.

Imagine a camera always at your fingertip!

Lytro Light Field Camera Review @ DigitalCameraInfo

Wed March 28, 2012

Lytro Light Field

Lytro Light Field

The world’s first consumer light-field camera is exciting, but not ready for prime time.

The Lytro Light Field camera was supposed to be a “game changer” in photography, promising a camera where the photographer does not have to worry about focusing because the camera’s claim to fame is that it focuses almost everywhere in one shot. The photographer can change the focus point after the fact anytime and as many times he or she wants. Think about it: no more blurred shots!

The reality is not quite as sharply defined. DigitalCameraInfo has published their review of the Lytro Light Field Camera — and give it their thumbs down as a consumer camera.

This does not mean the Lytro Light Field camera is not a fantastic tool in the right hands and for the right purpose, just not a point-and-shoot everyday camera. We have no doubt that the Lytro Light Field will gain many dedicated followers and we encourage you to give it a try.

You can read the Lytro Light Field Camera Review @ DigitalCameraInfo.

Editor’s note: As always, we recommend you get a second opinion. AllThingsD thought the Lytro was pretty easy to use after some getting used to.
