Working SLR camera made with 3D printer | NextGadgets.net | Cool Gadgets | Tips, Tricks and Technology How To's | Scoop.it

You can make a lot of cool stuff on a 3D printer — small statues, duck feet… and many other things eventually. For now, French design student Leo Marius has harnessed the power of 3D printing to make a real SLR camera, and you can too. It’s called the OpenReflex camera because it’s completely open. All the 3D files and instructions are available online.All you need to make this camera is a 3D printer capable of using ABS plastic, a CNC tool, and a couple of inexpensive parts, like screws and a small mirror. It takes about 15 hours of 3D printing to get the necessary body components. After that, you’re looking at an hour to assemble everything. At the end of this grueling process you have a manual SLR camera with a fixed 1/60s exposure and a neat mechanical shutter....

The best portable wireless microphone kit alternatives available for purchase online.

If you are a web publisher or rookie video-maker interested in capturing good quality sound in your next video interview, having a good, reliable  portable wireless microphone kit can make all of the difference of the world (especially if the alternative is the built-in microphone inside your camcorder).


Recording the voice of the person you are interviewing with a dedicated mike, close to the person and not too sensitive to other sounds in the background is the ideal solution, to obtain the same kind of sound you hear on professional news interviews on TV.

In this collection I have put together by using the Amazon Wish List facility, you can find over a dozen "economic" wireless microphone kits (under $250) as well as indispensable accessories as adaptors, plugs, lavalier microphone backup and wind protectors.

How to Dominate the Entire First Page of Bing

How to Dominate the Entire First Page of Bing | Tips, Tricks and Technology How To's | Scoop.it

Once you control your brand reputation by dominating the entire first page of Google, what's next?

 

True online reputation management requires an understanding of a complex ecosystem of sites where users can potentially interact with your brand. This includes search engines, social media platforms, local search platforms (Yelp), and business accreditation sites (think BBB or Bizrate).

 

Owning the first page of Google is a great first step to a successful reputation management campaign; however, Google isn't the only game in town. Next up, you'll want to monopolize your brand real estate on the entire first page of Bing.

Curate Your Online Visual Portfolio with Dunked

Robin Good's curator insight, June 11, 2013 12:17 AM



If you are looking for a free tool that allows you to easily create a visual portfolio of images and/or video clips, organized into categories, Dunked offers an excellent solution.


Simple, elegant and very straightforward to use, Dunked makes it easy to upload one or more pictures at a time and to arrange them on your portfolio page and into separate collections called Projects.


You can customize background, colors for all the elements on a page, fonts, logo and you can add a personalized About and Contact page.



My comments: Excellent visual portoflio tool for photographers, designers and artists of any kind. Compared to having an image or video collection on Pinterest, the difference is that the presentation style is much more elegant, and images are viewed by default at a much larger size. You also have fine control on individual text style, colors and other design elements. The absence of a bookmarklet further indicates that this tool has been designed with the photographer/artist/painter in mind and not to collect stuff found on the web.


Free to use.

The annual who’s who of digital innovators, investors, and artists flooded Twitter with buzz about several gesture control devices, including Leap Motion.
