If there’s one thing I absolutely love, it's awesome timelapses. My friend Sy Stepanov knows a thing or two about creating absolutely magnificent timelapse videos.
Flick the HD mode on on the video below, and click on the little button with the outward arrows, because checking it out in full screen gives you the full, mind-blowing effect. Seriously, get this bad boy as big and sharp as you can handle:

We've had a good ride here at Pixiq. It's been two and half years for me and eighteen months for Daniela. Between us, we've had millions of page views (seriously, millions, we're not exaggerating), contributed over a thousand articles, and enjoyed your comments and your tweets and your likes. But we've decided that it's time to move on now. Or maybe back, depending on how you look at things. We're returning to the roots that originally brought us to Pixiq: we're relaunching Photocritic.

One of the most awesome things about working on the Triggertrap is the community we've built up already. And, like any great community, we keep getting fantastic ideas via our Get Satisfaction forums.
As soon as Triggertrap Mobile launched, we had a fantastic idea from Travis, who wished he could trigger his camera by calling his iPhones... The big dirty secret, however, is that this is already possible, if you have a Triggertrap Mobile Dongle! The little trick is to choose the top se

Now how's this for a brilliant idea - Montblanc have come up with a PR stunt that has participants around the world to take photos at exactly the same time. In “The Montblanc Worldsecond”, the company launches their ambitious photo project that invites everyone to capture moments of beauty photographically. A specially developed mobile photo app (for iPhone and Android) features a countdown function, ensuring that all cameras of will take a picture at the very same instant.
As a stock photographer, you have to make your money any way you can. I suppose there are only so many saleable photos of 'businessman on mobile phone', but when you look at stock sites, you'll often find photos that are just a little bit ludicrously specific. The funny-guys over at CollegeHumour spotted that as well, and created this rather fabulous video about it:
So, the question - dear readers - is stock photography getting way too specific, or is thi
Long exposure photography is about capturing space and silence, like visually holding your breath; it is about capturing the beauty and calmness of a scene... And it's really good fun to boot!
The new book by Ireland-based David Cleland is a fantastic introduction to the process of capturing long exposure photographs. It documents the simple steps he employs every time he embarks on a long exposure photo shoot.
The e-book covers everything from the equipment you will need righ
If you've been anywhere near a technology magazine in the past few months, you can't have failed to see a series of Tamron adverts, showing off their 'astonishingly compact and leightweight' lens with 15x zoom lens.

When I logged into my Kickstarter account today, I was met by the Impossible Instant Lab, and I was intrigued. The IIL is a way of making real photographic Polaroid prints from photos taken with your iPhone. When I first saw the video, I was wondering; Could this possibly be a joke?
Allow me to explan: The IIL appears to take a square crop from the middle of your iPhone, and turn that into a Polaroid print.
So far so good, but in the mind of a photographer, the science just do
