There will be no eclipse action for residents of the southern hemisphere, but that doesn't mean we can't watch someone in the US destroy the sensor of a DSLR using the sun and a Canon 400mm f/2.8 lens, while preparing for the celestial event.
Video: Because they use wide-angle lenses, home security cameras are able to capture much more of the scene than a conventional camera can. This is the kind of info you might wanna know before you try to secretly turn off one your dad has set up in the living room, as one YouTube user's son recently tried — and utterly failed — to do.
Motion control rigs capable of repeatedly recreating smooth, controlled camera movements usually cost tens of thousands of dollars, and they require trained operators to set up and use. But Edelkrone's new SurfaceONE costs just $US690 ($874) and apparently can be configured in just a few minutes using a smartphone app as a remote control.
Professional photographers often spend hours painstakingly perfecting their images in Lightroom and Photoshop before sharing them with the world.

On Tuesday, the Baltimore Public Defender's Office released footage it says shows officers planting drugs and staging their discovery for body cameras, the second such video to be released in the last two weeks. Prosecutors have now dropped more than 40 felony cases that relied on testimony from the officers seen in the videos.
Days after a Baltimore cop was suspended for unwittingly filming himself apparently planting evidence, the Baltimore Public Defender's Office has announced that they have uncovered a second video, with a different group of cops, which also "appears to depict multiple officers working together to manufacture evidence". Additionally, prosecutors announced on Friday that they will drop felony drug and guns charges in 34 cases linked to testimony from the three officers in the original video. As many as 77 cases are still being reviewed.

It might seem like photographer Mike Olbinski is always at the right place at the right time to capture Mother Nature's fury. But for his latest film, Pursuit, he says he actually spent three months driving across 10 states to capture this amazing timelapse footage, chasing storms and weather patterns for over 45,062km.
Image Cache: When you capture Australia at just the right angle, it can look more than foreign — it can look properly alien. That's the end result of these photos from Canon's 'Down Under From Above' aerial photography project, which turn Shark Bay on the WA coast into an orange and teal masterpiece that looks like something out of The Martian.
Unsurprisingly, the latest AI advancement in body camera technology comes no closer to increasing police accountability or officer transparency. As the public's push for body cameras has died down, tech companies are now making their own appeal for body cameras to the police departments that buy them: Offering sharper, smarter surveillance.
It's been a rough few years for photographer David Slater, the disputed owner of those monkey selfies from 2011. Slater found himself in an interesting legal quandary after his ownership of the famous photos was disputed by the likes of PETA and even Wikipedia. Now, Slater is apparently struggling financially, the costs of the ongoing court battles all but draining his coffers.
Nest's Wi-Fi home security cameras have just launched in Australia, but their cloud recording has answered a lot of tricky questions in the past. Like: how did this car end up in this pool? Well...
Nest, the ecosystem of connected home cameras and gadgets backed by Google and Alphabet, is launching into Australia. It's not talking about speeds and feeds, though, so much as it is peace of mind — about the security of knowing that your house is being monitored when you go on holiday, about the safety of knowing your smoke alarm is working when you switch off the light late at night. With the philosophy that its simple approach to two serious topics — home security and fire safety — are backed by some impressive user-friendly tech, it's set to shake things up.
