With the internet ever evolving, it’s no surprise that browsers are becoming ever more efficient and powerful. With its latest release, WebRaw looks to show off its power as a browser plugin by being among the first to edit RAW photos in Mozilla Firefox.

New CompactFlash Card With Built-in RAID

Most Pro-level DSLRs already give us the option for automatic backup of images using dual card slots. However, Japanese company Amulet aims to resolve the backup issue for prosumer DSLRs as well. Amulet is set to release a CompactFlash card that allows images and video files to be backed up instantly using RAID-style ‘mirroring’. While set in “mirroring mode,” the card splits it’s space into two partitions effectively becoming two storage devices. It then records images [more]

100+ Million ISO May Not Be Far Away!

Some of you may remember this article that I wrote a while back in which I touched on the benefits of capturing wide-spectrum light rays with photographic sensors, and while I haven’t seen anything about single-pixel detectors hitting the consumer market anytime soon, I’m cautiously optimistic that we’ll soon be able to see some of these benefits anyway with the help of one of the lightest industrial materials on earth – Graphene!

Insane Video Showing Storm Chasers Get Caught In a Tornado

A number of deadly tornadoes touched down around Union City, Oklahoma on Friday afternoon, killing at least 5 people. Storm chasers Brandon Sullivan and Brett Wright were hoping to get as close as possible to the tornadoes to shoot videos of it, but when they realized that the tornadoes are coming right at them, it was (almost) too late to run away. The mounted video cameras in the car caught this crazy video of their attempt to save their lives while the city collapses around them. INSANE. [more]

Adobe Addresses Frequently Voiced Concerns Regarding the Creative Cloud

There have been fewer hotly debated topics in the past six months than Adobe’s move to the cloud. Many creatives really like the new cloud, but others are steadfastly against it. I actually have seen some very harsh arguments that might even surpass the flame wars between Nikon and Canon enthusiasts. As hard as it might be to believe for some of you, Adobe does listen and is addressing some of your major concerns with the cloud-based software system. [more]

Sony Giving Up on Electronics?

Sony’s electronics division isn’t doing so hot. In fact it is apparently losing money on nearly every gadget it sells. If you’re surprised at this, don’t worry, you aren’t alone. You may even be asking yourself what else they do. They have motion pictures and music but those endeavors have only contributed $7 billion to the company’s bottom line over the last decade. The electronics division has managed to lose a cumulative $8.5 billion in that time. So where do their profits come from? [more]

Magic Lantern Turns the Canon 50D Into a Video Monster

The Canon 50D doesn’t get a lot of love much anymore. The system is 5 years old, and was among one of the last DSLRs to come out without video capabilities. When searching through the firmware, it was later found that video functions existed for the 50D, but were disabled by Canon. Upon opening these features, EOSHD forum member Julian has found a beauty hidden in this old beast. [more]

Want People to View Your Videos? New Data Confirms the Future is Social

While many of us are dedicated to producing great video content, we often neglect to think about how that content will be consumed by the masses. I spend so much time producing, directing, writing and editing video that by the time it’s done, I neglect to give distribution as much consideration as I should. A recent study performed by Harris Interactive shows, somewhat unsurprisingly, that video is moving away from search and is more tightly tied to social sharing. [more]
