Over the course of the mid to late 20th century, photographers set out to document the rapidly shifting makeup of America’s expanse.

Samsung's New 28-Megapixel NX1 Camera Is Serious About Photography

We really liked the NX30 on its Australian debut in April, but there’s no denying that here at Gizmodo we like slightly more powerful and more professional cameras.

Mount Asgard Looks Like The Actual Home Of The Viking Gods

Artur Stanisz takes perfect photos of landscapes. So perfect, in fact, that sometimes they seem unreal.

This Ultra-Compact Support Lets You Shoot Hands-Free With Your iPhone 6

The iPhone 6 and iOS 8 make it impossibly easy to shoot timelapse and high-speed footage using just your phone. But while the boxy design of the iPhone 5 meant it could be stood on its edge for hands-free shooting, you unfortunately can’t steady the curvy iPhone 6 that way. Lots of companies have announced tiny tripods and folding cases to help solve that problem, but none seem as elegantly simple and straight-forward as the MOS Kick.

Photo: There’s something about this magnificent photo of the Eiffel Tower taken by Sylke Scholz that makes it look completely different from what I remember — most probably the choice of lenses.


Impressive 1980s Photo Of Old Jet Fighters Flying Over Giza's Pyramids

Photo: I’m completely nerd-gasming out over this image of old jet fighters flying over the pyramids of Giza during operation Bright Star in 1983.
