Sony Senior Technology Manager Mark Weir explains the “World’s Fastest Autofocus” technology the company built into the Sony a6000. It gets pretty techy, so the technologically faint of heart may want to steer clear.
We are our own worst critics. It’s always the case. Naturally, we see the works of others and gawk in amazement, but when viewing our own work we can often only notice the flaws and imperfections. But, photographer Mike Browne is here to hand out a healthy dose of inspiration and speak to the power of self confidence.
While he was born in 1965, it wasn’t until 2008 when Tatsuo Suzuki first picked up a camera with the intent to be a photographer. Since then, he’s been traveling around, camera in-hand, capturing the turbulent street life of Tokyo.

The title sort of says it all doesn’t it? The cool, slightly nauseating video above is the result of a fun little experiment: what would happen if you duct tape a GoPro to your car tire and go for a drive. And we do mean duct tape. Video creator Ryan Fox didn’t use any kind of special mount… just some tape and a prayer.

You hear plenty of people talk about how the copter is a “game changer” for photographers and videographers. I definitely think it is. Footage and photos that once required thousands of dollars (if not tens of thousands) of equipment and helicopter/jib rentals, can now be done for hundreds of dollars… [but] personally, photos from that high up don’t grab me.

And that’s especially true of stacked, backside-illuminated image sensors, a popular choice in smartphones where the tradeoff between camera module size and image quality makes them particularly useful.
