Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX300

Introducing the Cyber-Shot DSC-HX300
At the end of February 2013, Sony introduced a camera that can be safely described with the words “all at once”. This Cyber-Shot DSC-HX300 is a compact camera with 50x optical zoom. Today this handsome man came to our editorial office. He is waiting for a large field test in the format of “week with an expert.” For seven days I will describe my shooting experience with the HX300 and its functions, test the camera in different conditions and show the results of real shooting.

All these components are closely related to each other and inextricably affect how the film will end up. Today we’ll talk about choosing a camera to create a movie. Continue reading

The most recognizable camera in the world

The history of Polaroid began in 1922 at the Mouven Summer Camp for Boys, which was located on a lake in Connecticut. Barney Griden worked as a mentor in the camp, he was passionate about physics and later patented eight inventions for scuba diving.

Barney demonstrated scientific experiments to teenagers, woke them in the middle of the night to show a thunderstorm and explain its nature. Seen experiments so influenced his students that in the future many of them took up science.

The most famous among those students was Edwin Land, he patented 535 inventions – only Thomas Edison received more patents. Land’s inventions include a polarizer, an X-ray film, 3D films, night vision devices for the army, and much more. The scientist led the development of the U2 spy plane when he was an adviser to U.S. President Dwight Continue reading
