From the Phlearn YouTube Channel:
Anyone can create the invisibility effect, the key is taking the right pictures to make your job easy in Photoshop. In this tutorial, we guide you through the process of taking multiple photos and provide tips and tricks to make the job easy and fun.
The basic idea behind making yourself invisible has to do with taking a “base image” of yourself or anyone else and then taking supplemental photos to composite over top the base image.
Quick Tip: Focus on photography, most of this effect is completed in camera.
For example, if you want to make your head invisible, you would take a photograph of your head and then another photograph of your shirt in the same place. When you combine these photos together, it will look like the shirt is filled out from the base photo, but there will be no head from the photo of just your shirt.

If interested in purchasing a Canon Rebel-series camera, you may be wondering if the additional features of the Rebel T7i / 800D are worth the additional size and weight compared to the Rebel SL2 / 200D. If so, it's important to know how the two cameras stack up against one another.
Below are some of the primary similarities and differences between the Rebel T7i and Rebel SL2.
Canon EOS Rebel T7i and Rebel SL2 Shared Primary Features:
  • 24.2 MP Dual Pixel CMOS AF sensor
  • DIGIC 7 processor
  • ISO 100 - 25600 (H1: 51200)
  • 30 - 1/4000 sec shutter speed (1/2 or 1/3 stop increments)
  • 1/200 sec (flash) x-sync
  • Ambience priority, White priority Auto White Balance (AWB)
  • Pentamirror viewfinder with 95% coverage
  • Vari-angle touchscreen LCD, 7.7 cm (3.0") 3:2 Clear View II TFT, approx. 1040 K dots
  • Up to 1920 x 1080 (59.954, 29.97, 25, 23.98 fps) video recording
  • Video output (PAL/ NTSC) (integrated with USB terminal), HDMI micro out, external microphone (3.5mm Stereo mini jack)
  • Built-in Wi-Fi, NFC & Bluetooth
Advantages of the EOS Rebel T7i over the EOS Rebel SL2:
  • More advanced AF: 45 cross-type AF points (27 f/8 points [9 cross-type], center point f/2.8 and f/5.6 dual cross-type) vs. 9 AF points (f/5.6 cross type at center, extra sensitivity at f/2.8)
  • Wider AF working range (better in low light): EV -3 - 18 vs. EV -0.5 -1
  • Better metering: 7560-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor, metering with the area divided into 63 segments (9 × 7) vs. 63 zone dual-layer metering sensor
  • More autoexposure bracketing (AEB) options: 2, 3, 5 or 7 Shots +/-3 EV vs. 3 shots +/- 2 EV
  • Intelligent viewfinder vs. fixed
  • Single axis electronic level vs. N/A
  • More powerful pop-up flash: 13.1 GN vs. 9.8
  • Pop-up flash can act as master vs. N/A
  • Faster continuous shooting and larger buffer: 6 fps, 27 RAW vs. 5 fps, 6 RAW
  • Longer battery life: 820 shots vs. 650
Advantages of the EOS Rebel SL2 over the EOS Rebel T7i
  • Higher viewfinder magnification: 0.87x vs. 0.82x
  • Smaller size/weight: 4.82 x 3.65 x 2.75" (122.4 x 92.6 x 69.8mm), 15.98 oz (453g) vs. 5.16 x 3.93 x 3.00" (131.0 x 99.9 x 76.2mm), 18.77 oz (532g)
  • Lower cost
Who should opt for the Canon EOS Rebel T7i / 800D?
If minimal size/weight are not top priorities, and the Rebel T7i's higher price tag is not a barrier to investment, the T7i's higher-end features will make it a more versatile choice for most photographers. In fact, its more advanced, more sensitive in low light AF system alone is likely worth the T7i's price over the SL2.
Who should opt for the Canon EOS Rebel SL2 / 200D?
If you want the most lightweight, compact DSLR, or if your budget does not extend to the Rebel T7i's price tag, the Rebel SL2 will be a solid investment. The SL2 provides a solid feature set at a very reasonable price, and anyone carrying their camera kit for long periods of time (those hiking, for example) will surely appreciate the camera's smaller size and weight. Other groups who will gravitate to the SL2 include those with smaller hands and those intending to use the camera in a high-risk remote setup. Because of its small size and simple user interface, the SL2 may be the perfect DSLR to buy for a young photographer-in-training.
Built around an identical sensor and sharing many noteworthy features, the Rebel T7i and SL2 are more similar than they are different. Both deliver very good image quality, feature excellent subject tracking in video mode and offer an intuitive user interface that makes the cameras very easy to use, especially for those with minimal photography experience or otherwise transitioning from a compact camera or a smartphone.
Arguably the Rebel T7i's biggest drawback – its higher price tag – results from the inlcusion of noteworthy features not found in the SL2 (primarily, a much better AF system). For most photographers, the Rebel T7i will fulfill their needs better because of those additional features. But for those who don't need those features, are budget limited or who otherwise value reduced size and weight, the Rebel SL2 remains a viable option.

From Nikon:
August 25, 2017 – TOKYO – Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce that the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has placed an order for 53 Nikon D5 digital SLR cameras. NASA plans to use the cameras both at astronaut training facilities on Earth, and for recording intra- and extravehicular activities at the International Space Station (ISS).
NASA has ordered 53 standard Nikon D5 cameras with no special hardware modifications. Just as with the D3S digital SLR cameras delivered to NASA in 2009, these D5 cameras will be the same models available to consumers, confirming the incredible reliability of Nikon products, as well as their ability to withstand even the harshest of environments.
Highlights of Nikon's history with NASA:
1971The Nikon Photomic FTN* (NASA specifications) and NIKKOR lens were used on Apollo 15.
1980The "Small Camera", based on the Nikon F3 film SLR camera and equipped with a motor drive, and the F3 "Big Camera", which utilized long film, were delivered to NASA. The "Small Camera" was used aboard the Space Shuttle Columbia launched the following year.
1999The Nikon F5 film SLR camera and AF NIKKOR lens were carried aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery to photograph extravehicular activities (EVA).
2008The Nikon D2XS digital SLR cameras were delivered to NASA. Six D2XS cameras are used in space to document activities such as inspection and maintenance.
2013A total of 38 Nikon D4 digital SLR cameras, 64 NIKKOR lenses, including the AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR, and various other accessories were delivered to NASA. These products are used, among other things, to check solar panels and outer surfaces of the ISS.
2016An additional 10 Nikon D4 digital SLR cameras were delivered to NASA, and are also used to check solar panels and outer surfaces of the ISS.
*Nikon F equipped with Photomic FTN viewfinder that supports TTL center-weighted metering.
This year, Nikon celebrates its 100th anniversary. Throughout this 100-year history, Nikon has supported the research and observation of extreme environments such as space and the Antarctic with strong and durable cameras and NIKKOR interchangeable lenses developed based on its optical and precision technologies. Nikon has focused on making its products better able to respond more completely to the demands made by photographers, their work and the environments that challenge them. Nikon is excited to continue to contribute to the observation and research of such regions by developing extremely reliable products that are able to stand up to even the most challenging of situations.
Fans of Nikon, space exploration, and photography in general can enjoy a time-lapse video titled "Nikon in Space" - this time-lapse video was created from stunning photos of our magnificent Earth captured from space using Nikon cameras and NIKKOR lenses.

Image quality results from the Canon EOS 5Ds R (second lens copy) and Canon EOS 7D Mark II have been added to the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM Lens Review.
This lens tested slightly better at the wide end than the last copy we tested on the 5Ds R, so I moved the new results to the "Sample 1" position (the default). If you need a telephoto zoom lens that is more compact than the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens, this one is a good choice.
