At Miz Mooz, we understand the importance of looking great without giving up the comfort our women on-the-go have come to love about our footwear. Introducing the Selfie Shoes.
No matter where you go, you’ll always be camera-ready. Just insert your phone into the port at the front of either your right or left shoe, raise it to the perfect angle and click the internal button with a tap of your toe to take the photo. With the Selfie Shoes, you no longer have to use your arm, so now both hands are free to be in the photo.
We’re excited to introduce Smartbox—a better, smarter mailbox that fuses physical mail with everything you love about the electronic kind.
Smartbox is currently in field trial—stuck in the ground, in a field—for Inbox by Gmail customers. If you’re not yet using Inbox, simply email email@example.com any time before April 2 to be invited, and to reserve your spot on the Smartbox waitlist.
The loading bar is a signal to many of us to take care of those little things- like making a cup of coffee, taking that bathroom break or just petting the dog. We have been told that Fiber’s seemingly instant connections have taken away that valuable time. So today we are introducing Dial-Up Mode to slow your Fiber speeds down. Relax to your 56k connection and get those precious moments back.
"After two years of extensive upgrades, the Large Hadron Collider was warming up on March 21 for another round of experiments when a circuit controlling one of its massive magnets shorted out. Dismayed, scientists began repairing the equipment, hoping for a short delay. Just yesterday, CERN announced that the LHC could restart within days.
Then the unexpected happened. As physicists were testing the repairs by zipping a few spare protons around the 17 mile loop, the CMS detector picked up something unusual. The team feverishly pored over the data, and ultimately came to an unlikely conclusion—in their tests, they had accidentally created a rainbow universe.
'Rainbow universes were pure speculation before this happened,' said Jessica Czerniski, the CERN physicist who was overseeing the warm-up procedures. 'We had some solid math backing us up, of course, but none of us ever dreamed we would live to see this day.'"
We’ve heard rumors about it forever, and today we’re finally getting a look at it. It’s Apple’s first foray into the fashion world and it’s coming in the form of a watch. Whether or not this wearable will become the next big thing from Apple remains to be seen, but we want to find out just what makes this watch tick, so today we are tearing down the Apple watch.
April 1, 2015 – After months of research Flashpoint has developed the first ever on and off camera LED light series especially designed for cinema cameras with 4K recording.
Our new lights have a polarizing filter which spreads the rays for optimal 4K capture by dispersing the light in a "slower" way and matching the sensitive sensors that 4K cameras have. Available as a standard LED light or with adjustable color temperature, and as an on-camera unit (300 diodes) or an off-camera panel (1350 diodes).
The on-camera unit features a universal battery design, silent vented cooling, and up to 3 hours battery life. The off-camera panel can use AC power or V-mount batteries, and is the brightest unit of its kind on the market, even with the polarizing filter.
Flashpoint PolarLight 4K LED (Color Temperature Adjustable or Regular)
On-Camera – $349
Light Panel – $1,200
Industry changing breakthrough technology
Exceptional brightness (1000lux /6150lux)
Vented cooling for silence
Color temperature adjustable
6 stops stepless power control
Power source flexibility
Battery life readout
Panels can be combined to create large arrays
1 year USA warranty
Pre-orders coming soon! Projected shipping time is beginning of September 2015.
One of the most trusted names in camera and lens rentals – Roger Cicala of LensRentals – has announced a new partnership with Brian Caldwell (designer of the Metabones Speedboosters) and Aaron Closz which will be manufacturing lenses under the brand name C-4 Precision Optics.
C-4 Precision Optics has designed several revolutionary lenses that it aims to release:
The Beast – 66.6mm f/0.666 Lens for Micro 4/3
The Night Stalker – 150mm f/1.0 Lens for full-frame mirrorless
The Flying Saucer / Lightbender – 4.9mm f/3.5 Fisheye Lens for full-frame mirrorless
Check out the LensRentals Blog for more information regarding C-4 Precision Optics.
Canon has extended their DSLR rebate programs with a few modifications; many of the lens kit rebates actually went up and now the wildly popular EOS 7D Mark II qualifies for a body-only and lens kit rebate.
The Rebel series rebates are scheduled to end April 4 while the rest of the DSLR rebates are scheduled to run through May 2.
No surprises here. This lens performs very well even on the high-density 7D II sensor, hopefully foreshadowing a great performance on the incoming Canon EOS 5Ds / 5Ds R. Being realistic, with the great price/performance ratio of the Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 L IS USM Lens, most APS-C users would be better off buying a full frame DSLR and the 16-35 f/4L IS.
Popular lighting and accessory manufacturer Photoflex has announced via its homepage that it is closing its doors after 30 years in the industry.
I own a Photoflex Umbrella with Adjustable Frame and love it; I'm sad to see them go. Hopefully they will reconsider their hasty decision to close and continue to bring us high quality, innovative products as the first rays of sunlight dance on the horizon tomorrow. [Sean]
Update: Photoflex has indeed gone out of business. This is not an April Fool's Day joke.
