If you’re a photographer who covers extreme athletes like mountain climbers and wants to capture a moment from a unique angle, you’re probably willing to take some risks yourself. Like Corey Rich’s use of an incredibly precarious folding ladder tethered to the near vertical side of a mountain. Here’s to hoping he wasn’t working for free for the experience.
This particular behind-the-scenes moment occurred during a promotional shoot for the Nikon D4 where Corey apparently tried to match the extreme athletes stunt-for-stunt. The rig certainly led to a unique shot that you couldn’t get from a helicopter, but isn’t this what greenscreens were invented for? I won’t tell if you won’t.

You'd assume that climbing to the top of a 60m tall wind turbine would give you all the privacy you could ever want for a relaxing afternoon nap. But then you remember that soon there will be more drones zipping across the skies than birds -- and that privacy might officially be a thing of the past.
It's almost the weekend, and that means you should book in another Gizmodo movie night. This week, pick out your favourite silenced pistol, sheath your matching butterfly knives and take a trip to Jack Rabbit Slims for that $5 milkshake -- these are the best cult action movies streaming around Australia right now.
Lost in all those superhero comic book flicks that hijack too many screens in movie theatres is how in preventing a villain from let's say, world destruction or universe domination, the superhero becomes responsible for a lot of damage to a city. Like seriously, cities get messed up. Imagine being a citizen of a world that has superheroes and like Superman just destroyed your apartment building. That would suck.
