Making of Panorama of One World Trade Center

Sun March 9, 2014

The challenges facing the TIME crew in taking a unique 360° panorama of the new One World Trade Center is explored in this video. The picture is taken at 1,776 feet and the crew had never climbed the tower before, so designed a jib contraption in Autocad using blueprints of the tower, taking into consideration strong winds, vibration, etc.

An exclusive behind-the-scenes look at how TIME scaled the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere and snapped an historic photographic panorama.

Embed Getty Images For Free

Thu March 6, 2014

Starting from today, blogs can freely embed any of the more than 35 million images available on Getty Images for free.

Craig Peters, senior vice president of business development, content and marketing at Getty Images, explains that blogs that draw revenues from Google Ads will still be able to use the Getty Images embed player at no cost. They will be able to use the embed feature as long as they use them for non-commercial purposes, i.e. are not using the images “to promote a service, a product or their business.

This embedding works similar to what is already available for YouTube or Vimeo videos. However, the image creator does not have the option to opt-out.

Do angry people tilt their heads more strongly? And what is a characteristic mood for people in Moscow?

Leica Camera Announces the X Vario in New Silver Finish

Tue February 25, 2014

PRESS RELEASE

LEICA X VARIO: New Silver Finish

Allendale, NJ (February 25, 2014) – Leica Camera presents a sleek, silver version of the Leica X Vario as an alternative finish to the understated black of the standard model.
In classic black or stylish silver, the Leica X Vario is a product that epitomizes the Leica’s trademark quality and offers even greater versatility and creative freedom as well as brilliant image quality.

The Leica X-System is defined by its high-performance, APS-C format, CMOS image sensor with over 16.5 megapixels (effective 16.2 MP), remarkably large compared to other cameras in its class. The Leica X Vario is the first compact camera to combine this professional sensor with a high-performance zoom lens – the Leica Vario Elmar 18–46 mm f/3.5–6.4 ASPH. – and, as a result, delivers particularly brilliant exposures in all photographic situations.


For expansive interior shots, landscapes or portrait photography, the zoom range offered by the Leica X Vario allows entirely new horizons for creative photography. Its versatility is further emphasized by a full-HD video recording function, along with crystal-clear sound recording, that lets photographers capture those special moments in moving pictures with a resolution of 1920 × 1080 pixels at a frame rate of 30 full frames per second. A wide range of camera setting options and fast, precise autofocus further enhance the features offered by the Leica X Vario, a camera with a performance profile that offers even the most demanding photographers maximum creative freedom for spontaneous shots as well as for carefully arranged compositions.
