Some of the First Footage from RED's Epic Dragon

Some of the First Footage from RED's Epic Dragon

Recently director Moark Tola got the chance to spend 2 days testing out RED's Epic Dragon and has shared the results with all of us. I'm not going to lie, I've always been afraid that the day would come when a videographer could pull any frame a video and call it photography. Now you are only $29k (the price of an Epic Dragon brain) away from being able to do just that. Then again, I suppose you could use it to make kick-ass videos. This video shows the capabilities of Red Dragon's 6k sensor. Enjoy and drool.

The Most Detailed Photo of Tokyo Ever Taken

The Most Detailed Photo of Tokyo Ever Taken

io9 scored some interview time with the talented, patient and hard working, Jeffrey Martin. How do I know Mr. Martin is all these things? Simple. Because that's what it takes to make a photo so large it took 2 days to shoot, 4 months to edit and is comprised of more than 8,000 frames, at a resolution of 600,000 pixels wide. Watch this video that demonstrates the awesomeness that is the largest, most detailed, and zoomable, panoramic photo of Tokyo ever taken. Then go play with the photo for yourself.

Luminance 2012 Conference: Peter Yang

Luminance 2012 Conference: Peter Yang

I was completely f*cking torn as to what to do here. Post them all at once or roll them out. Here is the thing. I attended Luminance, Photoshelter's two day conference, back in September expecting the same old song and dance of over crowed auditoriums as speakers and spokes people try to sell me their wares. (Hmmmm kind of makes you wonder why I keep going to these things.) But I was pleasantly surprised as the conference was

Dogs Jumping Underwater in Slow Motion (1000fps Phantom & Fastcam) with BTSV

This video, reminiscent of Seth Casteel's photo series depicting dogs diving in water, is making it's viral rounds. Produced by Daniel Harmon and Kaitlin Snow with direction and edits by Devin Graham it was created to promote Orapup dog breath brushes. But if you're watching it here, on our site, then it's likely you are more interested in the behind the scenes video, which we got.

Arrowhead: Signal - A $600 Sci-Fi Short Film

Arrowhead: Signal - A $600 Sci-Fi Short Film

Having the opportunity to work on Rubidium Wu's The Silent City I've become very intrigued inspired by all the great independent film makers out there who are taking full advantage of accessible technologies like the Canon 5D Mark II. The latest of which, Arrowhead: Signal, by writer/directed Jesse O'Brien was made for a ballpark figure of 600 bucks. If you don't include the T4i, 5DMII setup and 3 years of invested time they appear to have used. But still how many of us have a kick ass

A Sci-Fi Short that Looks at Our Obsession with Digital Content and Social Media

A Sci-Fi Short that Looks at Our Obsession with Digital Content and Social Media

Armed with a Canon 5D Mark II, After Effects, CS5, Color Finesse, Sapphire and Final Cut, director Francois Ferracci turns out a striking short film that looks at the direction of social media and digital content. There are quite a few messages that you can take away from "Lost Memories" but the one that hits home for me is how it reflects our future current state of social interaction and how we can so easily get caught up in sharing our moments that we forget to actually experience them.
