Nikon Patents In-Camera Feature for Sharper Panning Photographs

Nikon Patents In-Camera Feature for Sharper Panning Photographs | HDSLR | Scoop.it

A new Nikon patent unearthed by Egami shows that the company has developed a new in-camera feature that assists in panning photographs. Tracking a moving subject with your camera and shooting a longer exposure shot creates photos that contain motion blur and a sense of action, but getting the subject perfectly sharp can be difficult. Nikon wants to use some fancy digital trickery to get around this problem.

Here's What is Really Happening Inside Your Canon Lenses « No Film School

Here's What is Really Happening Inside Your Canon Lenses « No Film School | HDSLR | Scoop.it

While Sony introduced a lower-cost consumer 4K camera, and Panasonic showed their own 4K solution within the GH camera line, Canon was relatively quiet at CES 2014. What they did show, however, was a fascinating look at the internals of their lenses, more specifically the new STM lenses designed to be used for both video and stills. We’ve also got another showing off STM technology, and a slightly dated making-of for Canon’s over-$10,000 500mm lens.

Could The Rhino Slider Be The Best DSLR Video Slider On The Market? | Fstoppers | HDSLR | Scoop.it

In the photography world it is all about lighting, lighting, lighting. For videographers the main emphasis is not necessarily lighting as much as it is motion. Perhaps the easiest and most affordable way to add motion to your DSLR video is by using a slider. In this video we take a closer look at the Rhino Slider and why it might be the best sub $800 slider on the market.

9 [More] Adventure Sports Photographers You Need to Check Out | HDSLR | Scoop.it

In my last post, I said that Adventure Photography doesn’t get much attention; however, based on all of your feedback and reactions it seems I may have been mistaken. Perhaps it’s just quiet attention? Regardless, I wanted to go ahead and compile a second list because, as I said in the first post (and as many of you pointed out) there were clearly some people missing.

How to Animate Still Photos in After Effects (Part 2): A Follow-up Tutorial from Joe Fellows « No Film School

How to Animate Still Photos in After Effects (Part 2): A Follow-up Tutorial from Joe Fellows « No Film School | HDSLR | Scoop.it

Back in November, we shared a great video tutorial by Joe Fellows that walked us through how to animate photos in After Effects by using the parallax 2.5D effect. Though the video received a warm response, there were a few questions raised, like how to stylize and texturize elements in the composition for example, which would in turn make the project look all the more profession and downright awesome. Fellows decided to make a follow-up tutorial that answers a few of those questions (some of which came right from NFS readers). Continue on to check out the video!

Nikon Just Put Me in a Video Game and It Was Totally Insane

Nikon Just Put Me in a Video Game and It Was Totally Insane | HDSLR | Scoop.it

The 64+ cameras were set up in an intimidating structure that looked like a skeletal space pod (if you're into sci-fi) or a more ridiculous version of a TSA body scanner (if you hate the TSA). After the curtains roll down in the room, you feel like you're about to vanish in some sort of magic trick but the cameras—Nikon D5200s and 5300s—all fire at the same time to create a 15.4 gigapixel image. There's absolutely no fussiness to it.
