Xzibit wishes he came up with this one. If you want to make your iPhone 4 work with a tripod, but think those overpriced tripod and case combos are too pass, then how about ripping apart a SLR camera to make a nice case for your iPhone? That seems perfectly normal to us, and that's exactly what one iPhone 4 owner did.
Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night can keep the new
14.6MP Pentax K-7 down--tight weather seals and low noise at high ISOs
ensure that if you have the chops, this camera will deliver no matter
what the conditions. The K-7 retains much of the great feature set of
its predecessor, the K-20
(5 out of 5 stars, Dec/08), with a few additions. It now sports a
brilliant 3-inch LCD viewscreen, 5.2-frames-per-second continuous
shooting, 1/8000-second shutter speed, and a whisper-quiet shutter. Its
innards are protected by a weather-resistant body, and HD video capture
has been added. All fine improvements.
When Canon announced the 5D back in 2005, it was a game-changer. The
camera was the first full-frame DSLR--meaning that its CMOS sensor is
the same size as a frame of 35mm film, about 60 percent larger than the
sensors in most DSLRs--in a standard sized SLR body, all for just a bit
more than $3,000. Three years later, its successor, the 5D Mark II,
pushes the image-quality bar higher and the cost of entry lower.
The EX-F1 is an unevenly performing camera that almost always seems to present a downside to counter each amazing high point. Its most unique feature is its ability to capture video at amazingly high framerates, all the way up to 1,200 frames per second. Five seconds of real-time footage turns into more than three minutes when played back, transforming a bumblebee’s flight and falling raindrops into a backyard ballet. But faster speeds severely limit resolution, curbing possibilities in both recording and playback. Still photos look good, with bright, accurate colors, but RAW images drastically slow down the camera.
