Friday Finds: Night Photography, Street Photography and iPhone Gadgets

By | Friday Find | No Comments

Happy Friday Creactives!

To start off, our good friends Down Under sent us this fun image shot using both a GorillaPod and a GorillaTorch.  A GorillaPod supported the camera and a GorillaTorch Flare was used write the text. I say that is doubly awesome!

Here is a little bit from the photographer Paul Gibbs: “It was taken on Nikon D700 full frame camera sitting on a Gorillapod, camera set to low ISO to extend time needed to write logo. It was a 30 second exposure at f8 on a tamron 28-75 f2.8 lens.The writer made sure he did not stand too long in one place to remain invisible (nearly),  wrote each letter backwards then covered Flare with hand and then did the next letter. It took just two attempts once we worked out exposure! It was totally dark exempt for moon light, hence the detail in landscape.”

 

The versatility of the GorillaMobile Yogi for iPad 2 has charmed a reviewer on Lunch.com. Thomas Duff gave the Yogi a 5+ rating and said, “this stand is WAY cool. As far as I’m concerned, this is now part of my iPad. It won’t be coming off anytime soon”. Now that is exactly what we were aiming for.

For those of our readers who live in London or who have the luck to travel there this July, check out the London Street Photography Festival. The festival features a panorama of street photography: old and new, analog and digital, professional work and student work. If you (like I) can’t make it to London, there is plenty to see just poking around on their website. I particularly enjoyed these images.

Somewhat in the vein of taking photos on the fly, Photojojo has announced a new mount for iPhone 4 that allows you to use any of your Canon or Nikon DSLR lenses with your iPhone.

While my iPhone has quickly become my favorite (and most readily available) camera, I’m not sold on the practicality of the device. What do you think, Creactives? Would you splurge on a mount for your iPhone and lug around all your lenses or just stick with your DSLR?

Enjoy your weekend!

Happy Friday!

This week a deluge  hit San Francisco, inspiring some members of the office to come to work in head to toe rain gear. While not winning any fashion awards, it probably did make for a more comfortable day at the office.

This magical video caught using a Lumix camera on a GorillaPod makes me, a lover of densely populated cities, want to get on a plane. I particularly enjoy the rhythm that occurs due to the trams starting and stopping.

GorillaTorch Flare was highlighted in Parents Magazine this month. It does look quite fetching against a turquoise backdrop.

Friday Finds: Gorillatorch Flare Reveals Itself and Gets Some Bling

Hello Creactives!

Gorillatorch Flare Launch

Clearly the big news this week was the lively launch of … Gorillatorch Flare. What you were thinking of another (to be remain unnamed) product launch? Gorillatorch Flare has been lighting up the press and we are excited to have this super high-quality light in our array.  Perhaps the most hilarious press hit this week was a piece in Wired that may (just maybe) have taken the “red light” analogy a  little far. Then again, as someone who grew up listening to the Police, it is a pretty catchy turn of phrase (although perhaps not in the mouth of a 8 year old).

In addition, Gorillatorch Flare was awarded a great piece of bling! The newest kid on the block was selected as a Hot Pick in this year’s 2010 Digital Life Expo in Australia.

Gorillapod Focus meets Miami Vice

Bow-chicka-bow-bow.   This week Photography Bay, who recently came up with the awesome idea to drive around the a Gorillapod Magnetic attached to their car, returns with this excellent review, showing off some of the wonders of the  Gorillapod Focus and Ballhead X combination.
