Spherical Panoramic Motion Capture

I’m not sure why I want this, but I do..

Over springbreak I was thinking about cameras and image formats and the one thing I wanted to research was.. Have spherical plates been developed and experimented with instead of flat ones to capture images..?

Principles of Panoramic/Spherical Photography so far include:

– Images […]

Expensive Camera – CS300K – Counter surveillance

“Current techniques for locating snipers (besides a well-trained pair of eyes) involve sophisticated microphone setups, which are essentially useless until the sniper fires a shot, at which point it could be already too late. But the CS300K Counter Surveillance Camera, from a company called JETprotect, promises to spot sniper scopes, binoculars, cameras and […]

A camera is a device that….

Wait, stop there; a camera is a device. At it’s most basic primordial description, a camera is a thing, and by definition, that thing exists. But what if there existed a universe in which the task […]

I posted my research here.

Expensive Camera: Phantom HD Gold

Phantom Cameras are cine-style digital video cameras that are capable of ultra slow motion. The Phantom HD Gold by Vision Research can run at 2,213 fps (when the resolution is reduced to 512×512). At 1280×720 resolution, the camera can capture up to 1,576 frames per second. At this rate, one second appears to be […]

Camera Research: WVIL | Hannah Davis

I’ve been looking at Artefact’s concept camera, the WVIL. WVIL = Wireless Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens.

The key game-changer with the WVIL is that the camera detaches from the lens. And you can control the lens from afar. And you can control multiple lenses with one camera. This will allow for flexibility in shot-taking, for more […]

Ultra HDTV 8k

It’s been a long time coming but it’s application remains to be seen.

In 2006, researchers at the NHK demonstrated in Las Vegas a transmission of Ultra High Definition Television with 22.2 surround sound. THe broadcast was from Tokyo to Osaka via an IP network running at 1Gbps. Uncompressed, the sound signal alone an at […]

Camera Research – LIDAR // Matt Epler

LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is a type of remote sensing technology that uses lasers to gather geo-spatial data. It is used in both civilian and military applications.

The range of LIDAR capabilities is extensive. On the ground, small units are used to scan objects or spaces using a dense array of laser pulses to […]
