I’m a photographer who is in no way wedded to any particular aspect ratio. I will trim my images to whatever I consider suits them best, whether or not they fall to one of the recognized ratios or some non-integer ratio.

But, I resent losing pixels. In particular, square format images have to be sliced out of an already elongated 3:2 ratio image — 1/3 of the sensor’s pixels having to be ditched.

This can be achieved anywhere from their work place, home, or anywhere where they like to spend their time. However, you can also... more

I have these utopic dreams of a perfect camera. I want a camera that makes photos that are ultra-sharp, yet soft, affordable, yet fits in my front pocket, yet has tons of megapixels, yet can zoom to see anything but wide enough to shoot interiors.

I want a camera that has unlimited dynamic range, that operates like a film camera (with the convenience of digital).

VR is growing fast, and companies like GoPro don’t want to be left in the dust. A single GoPro can’t shoot 360 video, and so far multi-GoPro 360 rigs are all third party. Well, no more. Today we get to meet the Omni: GoPro’s official VR camera rig.

Like the third-party and 3D-printed DIY options out there, the Omni uses multiple GoPro cameras (in this case six... more
