Relightable Dome creates interactive images where you control the light source

Relightable Dome creates interactive images where you control the light source | Innovative Photography | Scoop.it
Stitching together a bunch of images to create a single picture is hardly a new concept. Panoramas are old hat, and Google is even using 360-degree
Jennifer Moss's insight:

I wish there were more example photos with faces. Would be interesting to shoot time lapse facial expressions.

History of Cameras and Photography

History of Cameras and Photography | Innovative Photography | Scoop.it

The ancient history of photography can be traced back to a device known as the camera obscura. A camera obscura consists of either a dark room or box with a tiny hole at one end. With a small enough hole, an inverted image of what the hole faces appears enlarged on the opposite wall of the camera obscura.

Autographer - a wearable automatic camera

Autographer - a wearable automatic camera | Innovative Photography | Scoop.it

British newcomer OMG Life has created Autographer, an 'intelligent' wearable camera that uses an array of built-in sensors to take pictures automatically triggered by changes in its environment. It uses a semi-fisheye lens with a 136° angle of view in front of a 5MP backlit-CMOS sensor, and the shutter is triggered at key moments based on input from GPS, acceleration, direction, temperature, proximity and light sensors. The company thinks it should appeal to anyone interested in recording an event without having to operate a camera, or as an additional tool for documentary photographers. Images are stored in internal memory, and can be transferred to a smartphone using Bluetooth for viewing; alternatively they can be compiled into movies using the supplied software. It'll go on sale in November from the company's website for £399.

It would be easy, especially after the buzz of 'proper' photography announcements from Photokina, to dismiss Autographer purely as a gimmick - especially given the company name. But OMG Life is actually a consumer spin-off from the scientific imaging company Oxford Metrics Group, and the Autographer is a slimmed down, higher spec, consumer-friendly version of the Vicon Revue, an automatic camera that was originally designed to aid treatment of patients suffering from severe memory impairment such as Alzheimer's disease. So, in terms of the technology at least, there's a bit more substance behind it than you might at first think.

It's also, as far as we're aware, a unique concept; a camera that attempts to make informed decisions about the best time to take pictures. This marks it out from time-lapse devices which simply take pictures at pre-set intervals - the idea being that it's more likely to capture 'interesting' moments. Whether that's enough to persuade buyers to pay the asking price is a different question, but we're hoping to give one a try to see how well it works.

An Ingenious Camera That Splits in Two Turns Everyone Into a Subject

There's one in every family or group of friends: A photographer who—willing or not—spends most of their time behind the lens, and ends up conspicuously absent from nearly every photo. It's inevitable.
Jennifer Moss's insight:

Although it's questionable whether decent photos can be taken in tandem, this is a cool idea for some. For others, there is a reason we prefer being the one behind the camera.

New camera detects chemicals based on characteristic spectral fingerprints from chemical substances

New camera detects chemicals based on characteristic spectral fingerprints from chemical substances | Innovative Photography | Scoop.it
Imagine if you could just breathe on a little device and it would tell you whether you had asthma or lung cancer. If only you could point a camera to a fish to find out if it’s tainted. Or how about photographing the smoke from a chimney or an exhaust pipe and immediately be able to identify which pollutants are being emitted?

 

All this could become possible thanks to an invention by three scientists from the Department of Photonics Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU).

 

They have invented an extremely sensitive and compact camera accessory, which can capture radiation in the mid-infrared region, and can be used to identify a wide range of chemicals from a distance.

 

The device operates by detecting the characteristic spectral fingerprints emitted by chemical substances. Gas molecules vibrate in very specific ways. When they do, they absorb or emit an infrared light corresponding to the vibrational mode of the individual molecule. Measuring this light makes it possible to identify the type of gas. The camera can not only measure the radiation from the molecules, it can also reveal when the molecules absorb the radiation.
