Researchers at Columbia University have developed an iPhone app that connects a number of iPhones to shoot a so-called bullet time sequence.
Graham Rowan of Hertfordshire, UK has created a small camera dubbed the "fps1000", and as its name suggests, it is designed solely to record high-frame-rate videos. The goal is to open up high-speed shooting to a wider market by offering a relatively inexpensive product that is highly portable. Learn more

Got a few minutes to spare? You've got enough time on your hands to help a group of researchers tackle a massive problem. Cities at Night is a project aiming to recruit help from ordinary citizens in classifying images of Earth at night taken by astronauts aboard the International Space Station. An effort of Universidad Complutense de Madrid staff and students, their main goal is to better understand and reduce light pollution. See how you can help

Virtual Lens technology could help make optics smaller, lighter and cheaper.
ETTR, Exposure to the Right, results in an exposure that maximizes captured signal-to-noise and provides the best information from which to base a final image. This can be achieved in several ways. ETTR images of scenes with low-DR and high-DR require very different processing steps.
Color Management can be confusing. Here I hope to explain how the colors you photograph can be made to survive reasonably intact as they move through the five major color spaces usually encountered from shot to print or post: camera, camera jpeg processor, image processor, monitor, and print or web.
Exposure is determined by the luminance from the scene, the f-ratio, and the shutter speed — only. All other procedures, either in-camera or with the computer, to affect the brightness of an image, including ISO, comprise brightening -- a concept essentially different from exposure.
