Colorful Photographs Showing Uniformity

Mimicry” is a photo project by Dutch photographers Ilse Leenders and Maurits Gisen that’s based around the idea of uniformity. They write,

The inspiration of the series Mimicry came from the uniformity of the human beings. People from whom the identity is missing and those who are inconspicuous in our society. Just like animals they adapt to their environment. Visually in this series it is shown by the use of similar costumes, position and sex.

Optical Illusion: You’ll Want to Double Check This in Photoshop

We’ve shared a couple stories in the past month on how human eyes are very subjective and horrible as light meters, and here’s yet another mind-boggling example of how easily our eyes can be fooled by context. In the image above, the “blue” and the “green” stripes are exactly the same color.

Do People Always See the Same Things When They Look At Colors?

Update: It looks like the video was taken down by the uploader. Sorry guys.

Canon Goes Colorful with the Rebel T3

We’re not sure how we missed this when the camera was announced at the beginning of last month, but the Canon Rebel T3 (AKA 1100D) will be available in four different colors when it lands on shelves next month. In addition to the standard black body — which some consumers might find intimidating — the camera (and matching straps) will also be available in red, brown, and metallic gray. Supposedly non-black versions will cost a bit more.

Perhaps this is the first step Canon is taking towards allowing the colors on entry-level DSLRs to be completely customized, like Pentax has been doing for some time now.

Pentax Unleashes Rainbow DSLR on Japan

Pentax has unveiled a new “Rainbow” version of the K-x DSLR camera. The limited edition camera will only be available in Japan through Tower Records starting on July 23, 2010.

Only 1,000 of these units will be made, and each one will set you back ¥74,800 (~$800). Aside from the funky colors, the technical specifications of this camera are exactly the same as other K-x DSLRs:

The camera is part of a 2010 campaign with a “Rainbow” theme by Tower Records that also includes footwear, t-shirts, and backpacks.

Selling strange looking cameras is nothing new to Pentax — they already allow you to customize your colors, and last year they released a limited edition “robotic” themed camera.
