Lytro Camera Used in a Fashion Shoot

After reading about the revolutionary “shoot first, focus later” Lytro camera that’s currently in development, Canadian fashion model Coco Rocha reached out to the company to ask if they could work with a prototype. The next week, Lytro sent photographer Eric Cheng with one of the prototype cameras to do a fashion shoot with Rocha. In addition to the photos from the shoot, Rocha also released a behind-the-scenes video. While the video mainly shows Rocha posing, we get a few very brief glimpses of Chen holding a blurred out camera. The camera is entirely obscured, but we do see that it’s relatively small (roughly the size of a P&S), and that you compose shots with a screen on the back.

Leica Spotted on Kate Spade Handbag

Kate Spade’s Pocomo Gwem handbag features a pretty well known rangefinder camera. Recognize it? It’s the Leica M9 with a gold plated spade in the “red dot” instead of the standard Leica logo. Too bad the $225 bag isn’t meant to actually hold one.

While at first glance it might look like the camera hanging around his neck is a Leica MP film rangefinder, look a little closer and you’ll see that it’s not — it doesn’t have a battery compartment, a film reverse lever, or a film advance lever…

Canon 7D at the Australian Open

Big, expensive television cameras aren’t the only kind recording the action at the Australian Open. During the Federer vs. Djokovic semifinal match last night, the camera cut to this guy recording Novak with a Canon 7D. Luckily for him, it didn’t get smashed by a broken racquet.

It’s fun seeing cameras accessible to us ordinary folk being used on the big stage.
