News Shooter | Acratech launch dual purpose photo and video ballhead | HDSLR | Scoop.it

Acratech are a US company that specialises in ballheads for photographic use. They also make an excellent range of levelling bases which can be used with photo tripods to make them function more like a video tripod. I’ve used one of their levelling bases on lightweight Gitzo carbon fibre legs for some years now. It has been very durable and great for a second or third camera on an interview.

Creative Music Video Gives Lead Singer a Photoshop Makeover as She Sings | HDSLR | Scoop.it

There are many videos and articles out there condemning the use of Photoshop to alter a model’s body in unnatural ways.

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.

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.
