In today’s afternoon gear/gadgets round up I’m bringing you bros some affordable photography tools that will have you taking pics like a pro in no time at all. Photography‘s something that is near and dear to my heart, as I have several professional photographers in my family and am constantly reminded of the fact that the photos I take are sub par compared to them. That’s why I wanted to share a few gadgets/add-ons with you bros that’ll have you walking the walk in no time at all.
First up in today’s roundups are the Lytro Gen 1 Cameras (8gb and 16gb), the world’s first consumer cameras to capture the ENTIRE light field:
Most cameras capture the position of light rays, producing your average static 2D image. The Lytro dares to be different. Its cutting-edge technology records the direction of these rays, generating images you can later refocus, change perspective within, or view in 3D. You can essentially revisit the scene of the photo—meaning you’ll never miss snapping the perfect shot again.
— Take “living pictures” you can adjust afterwards
— Refocus your shots, change their perspective & view them in 3D
— Record 11-million light rays in each scene
— Store up to 750 photos at one time (350 photos for the 8gb version)
— Easily carry it anywhere: design is compact, durable & lightweight
— Shoot photos at an optimal resolution for sharing online
— Access an array of tools including photo filters & uploading software
Lume Cube gives you what the moon can’t: enough light to take incredible pictures and videos at night. This tiny portable light pairs wirelessly with your favorite devices to let you shoot in the complete dark, and is completely waterproof up to 100 ft. You can even connect up to five Lume’s at once to create full daylight for your shoots.
