A couple of weeks ago, we posted our in-depth review of the Sony RX10, an extremely versatile bridge camera with a far larger sensor than any other bridge camera before it. At the time, we didn't have our detailed coverage of the RX10's video feature set finalized, and we also missed reporting our in-the-field experience of the camera's Wi-Fi feature set.
We've now published our comprehensive Sony RX10 video page, detailing what you can expect from a camera that, it turns out, is also a surprisingly good movie-capture…

Google has been working for some time to take big galleries and museums online with the Google Cultural Institute, as a way of bringing museums to the people. Now, Google has opened its doors on this project with Google Open Gallery, allowing artists, gallery owners, and “anyone with cultural content” to create a digital museum, showing off their work and its context.
You still need to request an invite to get into the program, but it should allow for a great number of smaller galleries and artists a way to bring their art to the…

If there's one thing the recent spate popularity of drone photography has shown, is that if you're not careful, drones have a habit of falling out of the sky. In fact, famed photographer Chase Jarvis just experienced this first hand with a DJI Phantom and Sony RX100 II, both ending up at the bottom of an Icelandic ocean during a recent trip.

While 35mm film might be struggling, analog photographers have nothing on those who love Super 8 film for video. With production on cameras long since ended, and ever decreasing film stock, there's not a lot of development going on for 8mm film. But a father/son duo from Denmark are bucking the trend, and have designed and are building a new, high-end Super 8 camera, one with an impressive laundry list of features.
Their company is called Logmar, and the device they've created isn't a crummy, small handycam style gadget. It's…
