Disney Wants To Track Park Visitors By Secretly Photographing Their Shoes Like A Creep

With millions of tourists visiting its theme parks around the world each year, it makes sense that Disney would want to track how visitors move about its attractions to help minimise lines and crowds and also to provide a unique experience for each guest. But does it have to sound so incredibly creepy?


Take A 360-Degree Tour Of Virgin Australia's New, Neon-Tinted Business Class Cabin

We liked our time on Virgin Australia’s new business class, which recently launched on the airline’s Boeing 777 routes between Sydney and Los Angeles. If you don’t have the frequent flyer points or the throwaway cash for a seat, though, you can still enjoy the experience — at least a little — with this 360-degree Google Street View tour around the twin-aisle jet.


This Retractable Backpack Brings Your Camera To You

A backpack is a great way to carry a bunch of stuff while keeping your arms free. That’s why they can be a great photography accessory. The fact that it’s always out of reach on your back is annoying, though. This is surely why Wolffepack has created a photography-focused pack that you can access without having to remove it.


Watching Pills Dissolve Through A Macro Lens Is Both Gross And Gorgeous

You pop some paracetamol or ibuprofen and don’t give much thought to the journey it’s about to take through your body. But what if you could capture part of that trip? You know, the pretty part when it’s dissolving in your fluids. Doesn’t sound like tempting viewing, but photographer Ben Ouaniche has delivered a fair approximation.


Watching The Filming Of A Car Chase Scene Is Way More Fun Than Watching The Actual Movie

Video: Am I going to watch that new Bourne movie? I don’t know, probably not. Are you? You probably don’t need to, because the coolest part of the movie isn’t actually in the movie — it’s this behind the scenes footage showing the filming of a car chase. The B-roll footage shows how the arm of the chase car camera swings around and swivels, tailing the car perfectly so that it can get all the right angles.


This GoPro Breakdancing Video Used 100 Cameras

Video: Remember the bullet time sequence from The Matrix? It used an array of cameras in series capturing video simultaneously, with a crack editor stitching them together in post-production to create three-dimensional freeze-framed moments. GoPro has taken that idea to its logical conclusion with a circular 100-GoPro rig recording an Oakland breakdancing crew in competition.

So, you thought Canon had some ridiculously large lenses. The truth is, it ain’t got nothing on the former Soviet Union, which came up with this fearsome beast — a 158kg, 1.3m lens for its spy satellites. Oh yeah, it’s also for sale.


Perfectly Timed Photos Reveal Just How Intensely Bright A Lightning Strike Is

Using the Panasonic Lumix G7‘s 4K photo mode which captures still shots at up to 30 frames per second, photographer Matt Taylor captured remarkable before and after night photos revealing just how bright the light generated by a nearby lightning strike can be.


This 12K Timelapse Of Los Angeles Is Insanely Detailed

Video: Watch it on a big, high-resolution screen and 4K video looks awesome. 12K video is even more incredible — even though we don’t have screens that can show it off to its full potential yet — because it means you’re able to zoom in to a tiny portion of the frame and still see perfect detail. Shot by Joe Capra of Scientifantastic, this 100-megapixel time-lapse of Los Angeles, shot on a camera worth more than $100,000, shows just how amazing high-res video can be.
