[Video] Patrick Boivin's Interactive Prime vs Prime and Other Lessons in Stop Motion Animation

In this post you will see two awesome examples of homegrown stop motion animation by Patrick Boivin. Patrick has done some amazing work such as, "AT-AT Day Afternoon", which we featured awhile back. For the first video, you get to shape the outcome of a battle between the first generation Optimus Prime and the latest generation Optimus. I hold this up as a fun example of what patients and creativity can yield with todays, easily accessible technology.

[News/Video] Police Diligence or Harassment?

I'm not sure if I'm over reacting but this kind of thing get's my blood boiling. What kind of thing? Picture being on an over pass, late one night, shooting a time lapse video (maybe to win the next big Fstoppers contest) when you are approached by a police officer.

[News] Photoshop Touch Now Available for iPad 2

Adobe has finally let iPad 2 users in on Photoshop Touch (Android tablet users have had this for some time now).

Some of the highlights Adobe is boasting are: being able to work with core Photoshop tools designed for tablets, using your tablet camera to fill area on layers, select parts of an image to extract by scribbling, and being able to sync files to Adobe Creative Cloud and open in Photoshop.

[News] Canon's 5D Mark III:  First Pics in the Wild

The rumor is that March 2 will be the date for the 5D Mark II replacement. And Canon Rumors believes these to be the specs :22mp, 61pt AF, 100% VF, 3.2″ LCD ,Dual CF/SD Card Slots, $3500 USD. Far from being written in stone but the photos that turned up on their forums seems quite legit. For me, I hope to see something a little more impressive than what I'm seeing here or I may have to bite the bullet and step up to the 1D-X.
