A Calendar for True Photography Geeks

What would a calendar look like if the world was run by photography geeks? Photographer David Schloss woke up one morning with the idea of creating such a calendar, with days being incremented by 1/3 f/stops, and the year being ISO 2000. He’s also selling them as t-shirts for $15 a pop over on Mac Create.

Send Your Photos Back to the Future with the DeLorean Hard Drive

Well… maybe not, but for $250 you get a lot more than the average, boring old hard drive.

This is Flickr user MrDAT‘s homemade halloween costume. He used a Nikon SB-600 flash mounted on helmet and an Ezybox softbox. With a little more work and some cardboard, this costume could be turned into a giant, working human flash unit!

Geeky Aperture Clock Widget for Photogs with Android Phones

Apparently inspired by the f-stop watch we posted on recently, theres a new widget for Android phones that puts an aperture clock on your home screen. Unlike the wrist watch, the widget actually adjusts the “aperture” depending on what time it is, though it refreshes every half hour to save battery life. The bad news is that this dash of geekery comes at a price — the app costs $1.05 over at AppBrain. Someone make a free version please.
