GoPro HERO4 4K Camera

Ummm...Ill take 2. Wait....make that 5. Im wondering what the heck Canon and Nikon are thinking now that a $500 camera can do 4K at 30fps, and their main DSLR lines cannot.

Mesmerizing Underwater Video Uses No Special Effects

The video below won the World ShootOut 2014 underwater photography competition. It was produced by Francisco and Armando del Rosario and their friend Armiche Ramos. The surreal video is loaded with unreal visuals. It's even more fascinating you discover that it was all done with camera tricks and angels. Absolutely zero special effects were used. Check it out below.

iPhone 6 Plus Bend Test

There have been mumbles and grumbles across the internet that the sleek Aluminum made design of the iPhone 6+ is malleable and will bend in your pocket. Hipsters nationwide, with their super tight pants, have been posting pictures of their bent iPhones and complaining about the design.

In the video below Lewis Hilsenteger operator of the tech site Unbox Therapy put the iPhone 6+ to the (bend) test.

He also does a follow up video. The question is, "Is bending simply to be expected from a device of this size?" He put the Galaxy Note 3 to the test. Check it out below.

So what do you think? Do you own the iPhone 6+? What has your personal experience been? Comment your thoughts below.

Nikon D750 Tutorial Training Video Underway

Been getting a lot of questions about the new Nikon D750 which should be shipping soon. The D750 looks to be a full frame all-round workhorse somewhere between the D810 and D610. Im already revising some new scripts, and should have my hands on the body tomorrow. We will start production on the Nikon D750 Tutorial Training Crash Course immediately at that time. The download version will take about 3-4 weeks to finish and we should have the DVD ready sometime in November (just in time for the holiday season).

Ill be posting production updates here as we go. Best case scenario is we can have it ready mid-October.

Thank you everyone for your continued support!
