Notes

For years, we have observed and participated in the megapixel race. Pretty much all photographers have an opinion on this. So do Chris and Ade :-) So how do all these pixels impact our images? Are they necessary? Can we use them to be creative? What might the results of that look like? All these questions and more inform the boys' weekly musing on The Future of Photography. Science article from 2005. Lightning over New York from 2016 by Dan Piech. Some really big photos.... Gigapan makes products for crazy-big images. Vanvouver time machine gigapixel image. Don't forget, our robot still has no name and you could choose it and win a t-shirt! Make as many suggestions as you like here by 24th December.

Notes

Today's lenses are made of solid glass. This makes bigger lenses heavy and bulky. While fresnel lenses have managed to make lenses flatter by splitting them up in concentric circles of lens segments, they have always had some level of quality loss which makes them not ideal to use in photographic applications. Microsoft has now patented a flat lens that uses tiny nano structures on a flat surface to bend light similar to what a traditional lens does. For the future of photography this could mean smaller lenses and thinner smartphones without a camera bump. Don't forget, our robot still has no name and you could choose it and win a t-shirt!

004b Boy or Girl? Help Us Name Our Robot And WIN!

Notes

OH NO. Our robot has no name. What an inexcusable oversight of us.

Help us give it (him? her?) a name for a chance to win a t-shirt with ... you guessed it ... our robot on it.

Submit your suggestions here, the deadline is December 24 2017. Good luck!

(and of course, we'd also be more than happy if it turns out gender-neutral :))
