World's first Ultra High Definition shoulder-mount camera

World's first Ultra High Definition shoulder-mount camera | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it

This is the world's first compact shoulder-mount Ultra High Definition camera. Developed by NHK, it uses a single-chip color imaging sensor to produce 33MP video.

 

By reducing the size and weight of the camera, the portability had been improved, making it more maneuverable than previous prototypes, so it can be used in a wide variety of shooting situations. This compact head can also be used with commercially available still camera lenses.

In Defense Of the Precious Object | THE AGNOSTIC PRINT

In Defense Of the Precious Object | THE AGNOSTIC PRINT | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it

This is a pluralistic and global world we’re apart of, with many avenues available for communicating and showing work and that is increasing, not decreasing. I see totally opposite approaches to using photography existing at the same time, at the same place, and I can appreciate all of it as valid, interesting, significant, and in a way inevitable. I try to appreciate work on its own terms if I can.
