The typewriter installation «On Journalism #2 Typewriter» writes stories about all journalist who have been killed worldwide between 1992 and today. The individual stories are connected through common fields of coverage, places, professions and many other aspects. Besides the text the typewriter creates flags which are distorted the more journalists got killed there.
The cost of owning one of the world’s most coveted high-end cameras has just been dramatically
reduced, following the launch of a landmark global marketing initiative by Hasselblad.
The makers of the world’s most advanced camera system have announced plans to cut the
cost of ownership on a number of models – including a massive 22.9% off the entry-point
H4D-31 (with 35-90mm lens) and 20.59% off the company’s ‘ultimate photography tool’, the
60 megapixel H4D-60 camera.
One of the significant upgrades in Canon’s $3500 5D Mark III DSLR was the extension of the video recording limit from 12 minutes to just under 30 minutes. In the 5D Mark II, 1080p video clips could not be longer than 12 minutes due to the 4GB size limit in the FAT32 file system. DSLRs of that era–the first to record high-definition video–also weren’t optimized for video capture, so the processors would overheat after extended periods of recording. That’s a problem that still exists today in more compact mirrorless cameras that shoot in 720p or 1080p (like the Sony NEX 7). A 12 minute cap might not have affected professionals using DSLRs for TV shows and independent films–where most individual shots don’t last longer than a few minutes–but we definitely felt that crunch when shooting our iPad autopsy video. Newer cameras overcome heating issues with redesigned interior hardware arrangement, and the 12 minute FAT 32 cap is negated with seamless file spanning. But the 30 minute continuous recording cap still stands. And it turns out that it’s completely arbitrary.
One of the key tools in your photographic artist’s palette is the light meter. This essential item provides you with exact lighting information so you can properly set your exposures (which could be over-exposed by +1.5 stops or under exposed by -2 stops; it’s all a creative choice that must be strictly controlled to get the artistic and aesthetic quality that you’re seeking). Since you want to precisely measure the brightness of a particular scene, you need to be aware of how to do it properly. The computerized meter inside your camera can and will be tricked in a variety of lighting situations (too much black or too much white). Hand-held Light Meters will alleviate problems associated with the camera’s meter and give you better control of your exposures.
