Sony’s latest addition to their Xperia line of smartphones isn’t known for its camera as is, for example, the new HTC One. But even though it doesn’t feature “Ultrapixels” or 41 or the regular type like the PureView, it can capture 999 photos in just 68 seconds. Read more…

Shooting Studio-Lit Portraits of a Dancer in Motion at 14FPS Using a Canon 1D X

The 14 frame per second continuous shooting speed of the Canon 1D X DSLR probably isn’t a feature you’d associate with studio-lit portraiture, but that’s exactly what Australian fashion photographer Georges Antoni demonstrates in the short clip above. Using the Broncolor Scoro for stobe lighting, Antoni unleashes the full FPS potential of the camera in order to capture a model dancing in as many still frames as possible.

5K Footage Created by Shooting with the Canon 1D X at 14FPS

Canon’s new flagship DSLR, the 1D X, can shoot 18.1 megapixel JPEG photographs at a staggering 14 frames per second in burst mode. This is nearly at the 16 frames per second needed to hide jerkiness from the human eye — the flicker fusion threshold for moving images. Though the frame rate falls short of the 24fps used for Hollywood movies and by many video cameras, 18.1 megapixels per frame translates to 5K resolution in video lingo, while the video feature of the 1D X only shoots at 1080p (~2 megapixels per frame).

Gizmodo’s Michael Hession realized that the camera’s burst mode could still be used to produce reasonably smooth video. The clip above shows Hession’s experiments with using the 1D X as a relatively cheap 5K video camera. 2,000 separate JPEG stills went into creating the two-minute-long video.

What a 14fps Canon SLR Looked Like Back in 1984

Canon’s new 1D X DSLR shoots at a whopping 14 frames per second, but did you know that it’s not the first Canon SLR capable of that frame rate? Nearly 30 years ago, back in 1984, Canon unveiled the “F-1 High Speed Motor Drive Camera”: a camera powered by huge battery packs that could chew through a roll of film in 2.57 seconds.

What 14fps Looks and Sounds Like on the Canon 1D X

Canon’s new 1D X can shoot full frame 18-megapixel JPEGs at a whopping 14 frames per second with mirror-lockup. Drop down to 12fps, and you can shoot RAW images while continuously tracking the subject using AI Servo mode. Here are a couple videos that give you a feel for what 14fps on the 1D X is like.
