As a photographer, I am always looking to add new innovations to my photographic arsenal, which brings me to share a pretty cool idea with you—the Lytro camera.
Here’s an innovation where you snap a picture without focusing, from which you load the data on to your computer, and focus it there. No in camera-focusing needed.
Try it out, here: http://www.lytro.com/living-pictures/278
While this idea is all good and dandy, do you think post-focusing could compromise the artistic integrity of taking a photo?
The new full frame 1D and 1Ds series has been merged into a full frame 1Dx, and has a ~$7000 MSRP price tag.
Check out what engadget has to say about it, and afterwards make sure to check out the link below for video footage of the 14fps in action.
If you’ve ever wanted to know why Facebook keeps updating their newsfeed, here’s your answer. To be specific, here is your answer for Facebook’s most recent change in newsfeed.
By default, Facebook now displays the “top news” every day, with recent news hidden until the logged in user decides they would like to “see recent news”.
The reason for this is that the platform can now track the user interaction with the website for marketing information. To be measurable, anyone who wants to “see recent news” is deemed a more thorough social media user, whereas anyone who simply views top news and logs off without interacting too deeply with the website is viewed as a light(er) social media user.
The newsfeed change can now genuinely track the impressions each post makes on users. To elaborate: fanpage administrators can track how many ‘hits’ or ‘impressions’ their posts generate per specified time period. Based on this information, users can limit their posts to just the ones that generate large amounts of ‘impressions’, which in turn increases Facebook usage to some extent—this is good news for Facebook AND Fanpage admins.
In order to accurately track this information, Facebook programmers have implemented the most recent newsfeed so that when people who click “see recent news”, it is known that they are genuinely viewing the specified fanpage post for which Facebook provides the ‘impression’ data.
