Cinemagraphs - the interface between images and video

Cinemagraphs - the interface between images and video | Video for Learning |

"Cinemagraphs are still images that contain within themselves living elements allowing a glimpse of time to be experienced and preserved. Cinemagraph is a technique of blending the effects of images and videos. It was introduced by a New York fashion photographer Jamie Beck, in collaboration with motion graphics designer Kevin Burg"

A far cry from the crude animated gifs common on the web in the 90's and early 21stC web, these examples examples demonstrate the scope and potential of this new medium  I think what might be interesting for educators is the power to focus on, and highlight some hidden detail, a nuance that might be missed in a video or still image. 

For example, what details would a geographer, a mathematician, or a linguist choose to emphasise?

This article also provides a useful guide on the technical aspects of making cinemagraphs. If you want to explore creating animated gifs on a mobile platform then there are some apps available including  Giffer.  Some more examples here.

olloclip(TM)  quick attach multi lens system for iPhone4 | Video for Learning |
The olloclip is a quick-connect lens solution for the iPhone 4 that includes a fisheye, wide-angle and macro lens in one small, convenient package that easily fits in your pocket.


For around £45  ($69.95) this might be a good affordable investment for educational use - the macro function for science tech type learning activities and the wide angle when you want to capture whole group and class activities ....
