Posted in Canon by Conner Flynn on January 25th, 2011

Remember those lens mugs from awhile back that look like real camera lenses? Those were pretty realistic, but if you want something even more authentic, then how about a mug that was created from a real $1,300 Canon 300mm f/4 L lens?

Posted in Cameras by Conner Flynn on December 14th, 2009

Nyko Zoom Case for Nintendo DSi

Posted in Nintendo DSi by Conner Flynn on June 1st, 2009

Nyko Zoom Case for Nintendo DSiAs you can see from the above pic, the Nyko Zoom Case for the DSi makes sure that you will never call it a portable again. Supposedly, it will add 8x zoom to the built-in 640 x 460 camera. Which is nice, I guess. So long as you don’t want to put it in your pocket.

C’mon, who’s trying to take good pictures with their DSi? Apparently you can remove the lens from the Zoom Case, thereby castrating your DSi just as it has hit puberty and discovered it’s first erection. We don’t have any pricing or release date information just yet, but we’ll pass it along when we do.

Panasonic to develop 1080p twin-lens P2 camcorder for 3D captures

Posted in Panasonic by Conner Flynn on April 20th, 2009

Panasonic to develop 1080p twin-lens P2 camcorder for 3D capturesIf you haven’t jumped onto the 3D bandwagon yet, you’ll want to very soon if this year’s NAB show is any indication. Meet Panasonic’s latest conceptual camcorder, which will take P2 memory cards. For the moment, Panasonic’s 3D Full HD Camera Recorder is just a prototype, but it’s pretty clear that they intend to bring it to market asap. It looks pretty awesome.

The device will feature a twin-lens system for capturing 3D footage natively in 1080p, and the video streams will be stored on P2 cards. Will it be able to be used for 2D shooting at all? It doesn’t look like it right now. Either way, this is a step in the right direction for Panasonic. Everybody else is doing the 3D thing after all.

Camera Lens Calendar keeps the date in focus

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on January 27th, 2009

Camera Lens Calendar keeps the date in focusHere’s a great conversation piece that any photographer should appreciate. Even non-photographers will want to keep track of the date with this Camera Lens Calendar. It beats those boring paper calendars. Just adjust the focus rings until the current day and date are aligned.

It’s from the mind of designer Sharad Haksar and believe it or not it’s already headed to stores, but there’s no info on price. I’m sure it will be a hit. Then he can make one that’s powered and snaps pics for visual reminders that you need on a calendar. It could display such pics on the camera side of the lens.

Eyeglasses that are instantly adjustable

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on December 23rd, 2008

Eyeglasses that are instantly adjustableBritish Inventor Josh Silver has somehow escaped Wii injury in the UK and developed a pair of eyeglasses that are instantly adjustable, thanks to a liquid-filled sac in the middle. You just add more fluid to make the glasses stronger, drain them to weaken them. This could well make prescription lenses a thing of the past. They rely on the principle that the fatter a lens is, the more powerful it is, so by adding or losing fluid, the glasses can be instantly tailored to the right strength.

They’re also simple enough to adjust that anyone can do it. The only complaint so far is that they’re, well, huge. Josh is planning a trial in India that will distribute over 1 million pairs, at a cost of $1 per pair by 2020, otherwise known as the year of Coke bottle glasses.

Olympus 360-degree camera and lens

Posted in Cameras by Conner Flynn on July 1st, 2008

Olympus 360-degree camera and lens
You might think that a 360 degree camera and lens is a novelty that few users would be interested in, but Olympus is betting that surveillance and security big-wigs will be all over this, since it captures images anything and everything. It shoots in all directions, with not 10, not 5, but just one lens. It will take a 360-degree horizontal image with a 180-degree vertical view, wasting no footage on feet and ceilings. Olympus isn’t saying when it would ship, but I’m guessing casinos and other surveillance type environments can’t wait to try it out. Video conferencing would be great using this camera since the camera can pinpoint the speaker and capture them in a perfect picture without any panning.
