Motion Control Company Syrp Announces New Genie Mini

Syrp, one of my favorite New Zealand companies and Kickstarter success story, today announced their latest product: the Genie Mini. The original Genie is a timelapse and motion control device that works in tandem with ropes and cables to make it the most versatile timelapse machine available, even if it lacks multiple axis timelapse capture like competitor Emotimo. The new Genie Mini doesn’t entirely solve this problem, but it...

Once Mighty Lighting Manufacturer Photoflex Shutters After 30 Years

What was once perhaps arguably the best lighting modifier manufacturer on the planet, Photoflex has announced they are shutting their doors for good after 30 years of business. The announcement was made simply and abruptly via the following image posted to their main webpage:      Photoflex once competed with Paul C.

[SPOILER ALERT]: The Creative Process Behind the Web Series ‘High Maintenance’

The High Maintenance web series—created by husband and wife team Ben Sinclair and Katja Blichfeld—is not your typical stoner comedy. Since the show launched in 2012, it’s become Vimeo’s first-ever sponsored series as a part of their $10 million investment in the site’s paid Vimeo on Demand platform, and, among other accomplishments, held a panel slot in SXSW’s Digital Domain Convergence sessions this past year. The...

Microsoft Makes Surface Affordable: New Surface 3 Starts at $500

I don’t dislike the Surface Pro 3. In fact, I kind of liked it a lot. And honestly, it made the Adobe applications pleasantly more tactile, exciting and innovative to use. But the product itself was hampered by what I believed to be a rather steep price point for what many consider to be a slightly beefed up tablet. That changed today, with Microsoft offering the Surface 3 for a starting price of just $500. In response to...

Which is Better? Nikon Primes or the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8

The Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 is probably my favorite lens right now. I use it basically exclusively on my Panasonic GH4 through my Metabones Speedbooster. I like the lens because of its versatility, sharpness and most importantly, its speed. But is it better than primes? Specifically, Nikon primes? Some rather solid advice that the Camera Store guys give, and I tend to do this as well, is tell new camera owners to buy full frame primes...

Generate App Lets You Create Artistic Multi-Media Content in Minutes

As creatives, it’s almost too easy for us to encounter a situation or scenario that should be transformed into content. Whether it’s a concert, art opening or something you find on the street, your creativity is undying; yet your time is limited. So how do you quickly assemble it all in one place? Better yet, how do you combine all of these aspects—audio, visual and artistic production—into one multi-media piece...

Thailand’s Bizarre Move to Outlaw “Underboob Selfies”

“Unberboob selfies” have become a viral phenomenon recently across social media, especially in Thailand, and this apparently has the Thai government worried. Earlier this month the Thailand’s government outlawed the practice and warned it’s citizens that anyone caught doing it could face up to five years in prison, although how they plan on identifying the mostly faceless boob outlaws is still...
