Fantasea FRX100 V underwater housing released for Sony RX cameras

by on May.11, 2017, under Reviews


Fantasea has announced the launch of its new FRX100 V Housing, an underwater housing unit designed for the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III/IV/V cameras. The housing offers protection from water, as well as elemental nuisances like sand and dust, and is rated for depths as low as 60m / 200ft. In addition to being shock-resistant and durable thanks to its injection-molded polycarbonate shell, the housing features a double O-ring seal, support for lighting accessories, and a removable anti-glare hood for using the camera’s LCD.

FRX100 V Housing users are able to access all of the Sony camera’s functions and controls, according to Fantasea, which says they are all ‘clearly marked’ on the housing. A special mount is included for attaching lighting accessories, and there’s also removable connection point for a double fiber optic cable. Operators have access to a dedicated video control button, and there’s likewise a removable flash diffuser.

Fantasea states that each underwater housing unit is equipped with a Moisture Detector installed inside, as well as a port cover and hand strap. The housing is available to purchase from Fantasea now for $530.

Fantastic footage of fjords with the DJI Mavic Pro

by on May.10, 2017, under Reviews


This footage, filmed by CreateOne film production on a DJI Mavic Pro high above Norway has us all checking our vacation days and airline ticket prices. The processing is a little heavy in some places and there’s a couple of odd jello-tastic shots, but it’s well worth the two minutes of your time if you’re looking for a quick break from your day.

This camera is designed to keep only the best photos

by on May.09, 2017, under Reviews


A new device called Trophy Camera uses artificial intelligence to compare its own photographs with the world’s most iconic images. During the comparison, Trophy Camera’s AI looks for specific characteristics common in photographs that have won World Press Photo yearly since 1955. Photos that show at least a 90-percent positive correlation with these notable characteristics are then uploaded to the camera’s own automated website. It’s a bit similar in spirit to Camera Restricta, a concept camera that uses GPS to prevent its user from taking clichéd photos.

Trophy Camera was created by media artist Dries Depoorter and PhD student/photographer Max Pinckers. Speaking to Co.design, Depoorter and Pinckers explain that their camera is a sort of commentary on what they see as the redundant photography produced by the ‘more automatized’ cameras that are becoming increasingly popular.

Elaborating on that, Pinckers said:

Press photography appears to be becoming a self-referential medium dominated by tropes, archetypes, and pop-culture references. What implications does this have on how we learn about the world through the images we are being shown? …By making this camera, we try to implicitly comment on the current status of photojournalism–which seems to be becoming more questionable in today’s visual landscape–along with the incredibly fast development of computer vision and the relevance of artificial intelligence in our time.

The camera itself is made from a Raspberry Pi Zero W, the computer’s Full HD camera module, a 128 x 32 monochrome OLED display, and a 5000mAh powerbank. Trophy Camera is currently part of an exhibition where photographs are taken; most of them are blurry and less than ‘notable,’ as shown on the camera’s automated website.
