921 Video Editing Game Changer

Chris’ main workstation is still out, but a replacement is getting closer, in form of a fan-less compact laptop that will outperform the previous iMac Pro by a decent margin. This is mainly possible thanks to your support!

Topics:

  • [PHOTO] Flat Lenses Are Here : Flat lenses are finally becoming a reality. Just not in your camera. Metalenz received a big funding round and is already selling millions of cameras that have flat lenses. Chance are you will soon be using them without knowing about it.
  • [SPACE, PHOTO] Tree Rings In Space : JWST has made another spectacular finding. One that initially looks like something’s wrong with the telescope. Turns out it’s real and moving into space at the speed of 6 million miles per hour.
  • [AI, PHOTO] AI-Powered Homework, Good or Evil? : Students are using AI to write their papers. Of course they do. And teachers are getting worried that that will deprive them of the benefits of putting effort into homework. Are we facing a similar challenge in photography?
  • [PHOTO, AI] Video Editing Game Changer : If you edit video, you’ll know how difficult it can be to remove a background object in a clip. Or to clean up audio. Or to put someone in front of a new backdrop. Runway ML is about to change that. With an AI-powered video editor that runs in your browser and that some call a game changer.

911 All Things Interesting In Photography

The James Web Telescope is arguably the best camera.. not on the planet though. Chris looks at zoomable content, at being there and how that’s different from the limited senses that we can capture with our photography. Also: another quick look at DALL-E and what it has to do with pizza.

Topics:

  • [PHOTO, SPACE] IR: Areas of star formation : The James Webb Telescope sees more. This infrared image of spiral galaxy NGC 7496 shows the areas that were previously obscured by gas and dust to be star cradles.
  • [OTHER] Best camera : Ha! xkcd is perfectly right.. the best camera isn’t always the one you have on you. It might be the camera at L2.
  • [SPACE] Zoomable Image: Stephan’s Quintet : An impressive zoomable view of a JWST image of Stephan’s Quintet. Resolution 153 mega pixels.
  • [PHOTO] Being there : I had this txt discussion with my friend Jon Miller. It started with the new Insta360 One X2, meandered over to me planning to vlog the scouting tour next month with the iPhone only and ended up on a deeply philosophical level.
  • [PHOTO, AI] Vox: how dalle2 works and what it means : A great video by VOX talking about how image generators like DALL-E work. For a bonus treat, watch the bonus video mentioned in the video’s description.
  • [PHOTO, AI] PizzaDalle : A Twitter account showcasing DALL-E by generating pizza-related pictures. I like.
