Timelapse photography is so cool! I remember seeing the the time lapse photography of the original Disneyland being built back in the 50’s and being totally blown away. It could also be a great teaching/learning tool. For example, check out the video below to watch a set setup sequence.
I know Ricoh has some relatively cheap digital cameras that can do it, but I’m not aware of any others within a reasonable price range. Timelapse digital camera + Gorilla pod… Might be next on my geek wish list.
I was always skeptical about the theory that porn drove the demise of Betamax, the success of VHS and VCRs, and more recently traffic on the internet. Now, within a couple of days we have Yahoo Hack Day events in Taiwan with lap dances, followed by Barnes & Noble releasing the “Nook e-Book” (say that 3 times quickly). Seems like a lot of big companies must believe that porn is indeed a major driver on the internet.
I understand that it's version 1.0, and that it's free... but the Photoshop iPhone app just doesn't seem like an Adobe application. The functions are extremely limited- for example you can rotate an image by 90 degrees but can't adjust for tilt, there is no sharpen adjustment, etc. If this had been one of the first iPhone photo apps it might have been ok, but now there are quite a few good apps out there. Hopefully Adobe will be coming out with updates soon.
