Camera Wrist Strap

Camera Wrist Strap

For a while we were convinced there was one company making all the wrist straps that are included with most point-and-shoot digital cameras. Just one little uninspired-to-get-creative-because-there's-no-competition company out there churning these things out by the case full. T...

Camera Table Dolly

Camera Table Dolly

It's amazing we all didn't die from nausea (possible?) growing up watching videos shot on our dad's or our friend's gigantic camera. Seriously, those videos were like watching The Blair Witch Project only instead of the disappearance of some campers we watched our Grandmother ea...

GoPano iPhone 4 Panorama Lens

GoPano iPhone 4 Panorama Lens

Flashback to when you were between the ages of six and twelve. You remember pretending you were a spy and wearing those sweet sunglasses with the little mirrors inside? We can't possibly be the only ones that remember those things. Whatever, that's not the point. Like it or not, ...

Lomokino Movie Camera

Lomokino Movie Camera

Seeing as how everything else is going all "vintage" these days, it was only a matter of time before even photography took the plunge. Technically that would have been a more fitting statement to make around a decade ago, but you get the idea. Lomography is here and it's not goin...

Couch Car Camera Straps

Couch Car Camera Straps

It's not much of a stretch to say that Eleanor is one of the coolest cars in recent memory and she's just a Frankenstein creation of Ford and Shelby. Try as they might, no amount of fast and furious modern design will ever reach any sort of vanishing point like the machines our a...

Throwable Panoramic Ball Camera

Throwable Panoramic Ball Camera

If you want something done right, do it yourself. If something you want doesn't exist, make it yourself. This is the story of the throwable panoramic ball camera which started as a thesis project by Jonas Pfeil. You can't actually capture your world in three dimensions yet, but i...

Lytro Camera

Lytro Camera

Look, there’s only so much Photoshop can do to fix a crappy photo. Even with that new un-blur thing Adobe just announced it still can’t account for your inability to focus. Basically that means if you’re too drunk to hold the camera steady you’re fine, but if you were too...

JVC GX-PX10 Camera

JVC GX-PX10 Camera

Blinking is a biological imperative that, while necessary, causes people to miss very important moments in time when they're situated behind the viewfinder. Shutter lag is a similar situation, but it's not one that you have to deal with anymore. JVC understands that the differenc...

Samsung NX200 Camera

Samsung NX200 Camera

Contrary to popular belief, the list of companies that make great cameras isn't three names long, and it doesn't end with the letter N. After basically conquering the TV market, Samsung decided to switch their focus to the high end camera market. The NX200 is the newest mirrorles...

Elecom Orime Laser Mouse

Elecom Orime Laser Mouse

Contrary to popular belief, Logitech and Microsoft aren't the only companies that make computer mice. Their Sidewinder MX90000 Performance Pro Premium models are great, but they're also a little common place for our taste. This Elecom Orime Laser Mouse is as much a departure from...

Nikon 1 Cameras

Nikon 1 Cameras

We love our DSLR to the point that any normal person would probably consider it unhealthy, but even we don't take it everywhere. Even if you can cope with the size constraints (you have to have all your lenses with you all the time), you're always worrying about whether or not it...

ContourRoam

ContourRoam

Scuba diving is our absolute favorite leisurely/not-so-leisurely (depending on sharks) activity. The problem is, explaining the awesomeness to someone who has never done it before is like trying to tell someone how amazing Cherry Garcia is who's never tasted it. The best way we...

Samsung MV800

Samsung MV800

Ever since you could share a picture of yourself on the interweb girls have teased us by holding cameras at just the right angle to supply the optimum amount of cleavage to face ratio. Snapping pictures of yourself is an art the fairer sex mastered long ago. We're not gonna get...

Movie Mount for iPad2

Movie Mount for iPad2

There is soon going to be a day where we do literally everything with our iPads. Chopping up onions for dinner: iPad. Steering your car: iPad. Voting: iPad. While we aren't there yet, we are starting to get dangerously close with all the products flooding the market that take yo...

CineSkates Camera Sliders

CineSkates Camera Sliders

Creating high quality video without what we like to call the "Blair Witch Effect" is damn near impossible unless you have crazy expensive equipment. We love the fact that the DSLR can record HD video, but we spent enough money on the rig already that we don't want to spend anothe...
