December 2009

In February 2009, Jim McKelvey wasn’t able to sell a piece of his glass art because he couldn’t accept a credit card as payment. Even though a majority of payments has moved to plastic cards, accepting payments from cards is still difficult, requiring long applications, expensive hardware, and an overly complex experience. Square was born a few days later right next to the old San Francisco US Mint. Today the Square team is focused on bringing immediacy, transparency, and approachability to the world of payments: an inherently social interaction each of us participates in daily. We’re starting with a limited beta and rolling out to everyone in early 2010.

Lessons Learned Shooting with the Canon 5D Mark II :: digitalartwork – Multimedia Journalism

by sbrothier
For the Michael Jackson Memorial piece I worked on, we decided before I left for L.A. that we would use the Canon 5D Mark II to try and push the look of the piece, and to try something new. The first thing I did, is call up a freelancer, Patrick Burke, to run sound. Patrick used to be an AC (Assistant Camera) in L.A. so he came with all the right tools, including a film slate that we used to sync audio from a Marantz PMD660 to the video footage of the 5D.

yellowBird | See the world like never before

by sbrothier & 2 others
What does a bird have to do with the latest recording and displaying technology? Everything. Our technology is about enjoying a totally interactive 3D view. A view that reaches beyond today's standard perspective and that is experienced by viewers as if they are floating. Just like a bird soaring through the sky.

yellowBird Video Platform Puts You In the Middle, But Can It Tell a Story? - - The Evolution of Story.

by sbrothier
Interactive video has a long way to go, but Netherlands based yellowBird and their 360 degree offering might help move it along. We, as a species, watch a lot of vids. Buckets full, really. And for the most part, we're comfortable pressing play and being spoon-fed the story. This, at least in part, explains the lukewarm reception - commercially speaking - of interactive films. Most of the 'interactivity' centers on controlling the story.

EOS Documentation Project- Manuals

by sbrothier
A la demande de plusieurs personnes et avec l'accord bien entendu de Baylyns, voici un Topic sur les bagues M42 et les objectifs anciens.

Bagues M42 -

by sbrothier
Depuis la démocratisation des reflex numériques nous assistons au retour des objectifs M42. Nous ne parlerons pas ici de ces objectifs de qualité très variable mais des bagues qui permettent leur adaptation (sur canon eos dans notre cas).

Stanford “Frankencamera” project aims to create an open source imaging platform

by sbrothier
It is, however, a fun idea to play with. The camera really is enough of a specialized platform that it could be one of the few devices that doesn’t succumb to convergence over the next decade (I don’t share TechCrunch’s optimism about phone cameras). Every other device we interact with is getting smarter, so why not the camera? Sure, you’ve got smile shutter and 100 scene modes and all those features we don’t want or need, but that’s not smart. It’s convenient, and barely that. And you’ve got HD movie mode now — great, but while admittedly the resolution is slightly higher now, my 2MP Sony was doing movies in 2001.

Stanford’s Open Source Camera Project

by sbrothier & 1 other
The web is abuzz over a project over at Stanford that aims to revolutionize how we think about photography by building an open source camera (dubbed Frankencamera). That’s right… Open. Source. Camera. While you try to wrap your mind around this new paradigm, I’ll point out of a few of the important aspects of the project and throw in some of my thoughts on it.
