Hubble captures 3x Jupiter moon transit

Hubble captures 3x Jupiter moon transit

The event that the Hubble space telescope captured this week only happens once or twice every ten years. What we're seeing here is three of the four Galilean satellites - moons, that is - moving around Jupiter's gaseous surface, all within the same frame at the same time. Their shadows are all in the frame at the same time, at least. Here you'll see the moons "Io", "Callisto", and our good friend "Europa." That last one we'll be visiting in the next 9 years if we're lucky.

Selfies, flash contributed to plane crash, says NTSB

Selfies, flash contributed to plane crash, says NTSB

Using your phone while on a plane? Great idea if you’re a passenger. If you’re actually flying the plane, or otherwise near the person piloting the aircraft, it’s a potentially devastating choice. The National Traffic Safety Board (NTSB) has released their findings on a crash that occurred in May of last year, and are blaming selfies and the use of flash for bringing the aircraft down. According to their report, the pilot experienced spacial disorientation as a result of being distracted while flying.

Says the organization, "Photography now exists in our pockets, and we want to celebrate this."

New iOS app WhiteAlbum sends photos you’ve taken, but never seen

New iOS app WhiteAlbum sends photos you’ve taken, but never seen

Point, click, swipe, approve, and possibly repeat; that’s smartphone photography in a nutshell. You snap a picture, make sure it’s good enough, then move along unless you want to re-take it. It’s instant gratification, and oddly satisfying. Perhaps equally as satisfying is not knowing if your shot was good or not. We got a glimpse of that with the Polaroid Cube and HTC Re, where you shots weren’t immediately viewable. Taking that idea one step further is an app called WhiteAlbum, where you only see your shots once they’ve been mailed to you.

VSN Mobil V.360 Camera Review

VSN Mobil V.360 Camera Review

The V.360 camera presents a fairly remarkable media-capturing proposition: the ability to capture panoramic (360-degree) videos or photographs with one tap. No stitching, no multiple-shot photography necessary. This system uses a mirror, instead, as well as a 4K/16 megapixel image sensor. You're using a fixed f/3.0 aperture here and you've got the ability to capture up to 6480 x 1080 HD video at 30FPS or up to 7-megapixel photos (that's 6480 x 1080 as well). What we're doing in this initial review is checking image and video quality - we'll be getting more hardcore in the near future.
