Over on Reddit, photographer David Vincent Wolf has been answering questions about his newest project: a music video for Portugal. The Man's new song, “Atomic Man.” It's an incredible combination of still photography and automatic tweening that creates a mind-blowingly freaky final product.
According to Wolf, the video is comprised of more than 5,000 shots, which were then stitched together in Final Cut Pro 7 and After Effects. He used a plugin called Twixtor to interpolate the difference between each frame. Sometimes, it creates…

Legendary astronaut Buzz Aldrin will help launch Hasselblad's latest camera, the Lunar, at a special event in New York City on May 30, 2013. The luxurious Lunar was announced at photokina in Germany last year and was initially pegged for a Spring 2013 release. While there was some talk about the launch date for the Lunar being pushed back to the summer, the high-end, compact system camera, which is built around a Sony NEX-7 body, seems to be back on schedule.
We couldn't get confirmation from our Hasselblad contact as to whether…

Model Jen Brook made waves a few months back by posting an open letter to photographers from a model in which she discussed the things that made a shoot much better for her with a new photographer. The post went viral due to its excellent advice, and now Brook has made another post, this time from one model to another.
Her new piece, “Dear Model…, kindest regards, Other Model. XXX” is a collection of little tips that she has picked up in her years of modeling, particularly about how to pose to emphasize certain features, and…

Announced just last month, the new Panasonic G6 and Panasonic GF6 are two compact system cameras we've been eager to get our hands on and put to the test in the IR Lab — as well as out in the field with our reviewers. The cameras' predecessors were both enthusiastic Dave's Picks, and we have high hopes that the latest models will show marked improvements. While the Panasonic G6 and GF6 continue to go through our rigorous battery of laboratory tests, we've posted First Shots from both of them for your pixel-peeping pleasure.

Last month, Nikon shipped updated firmware for no less than eight digital SLRs, extending support for the impressive AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR lens that the company introduced last January. In the last few days, three more camera bodies – the D700, D300, and D300s — have been made compatible with that lens, while one of Nikon's compact Coolpix models has had an exposure bug squashed.
The Nikon D700 and D300 date back to 2008, while the D300s arrived on the market in 2009 — not quite as long-in-the-tooth as the oldest of the cameras updated…
