    Photo news - W/E 21st July

    Slow news week... but this is interesting...

    http://news.cnet.com/8301-1035_3-575...r-vital-signs/

    Looking for a way to tag the photos you snap with your blood pressure and body temperature? Sony has a patent filing in the works that could do just that.
    Published on Thursday by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, a patent application called "Camera button with integrated sensors" describes the technology.
    A sensor in the mobile device's camera would record stats of the photo shooter, such as body temperature, pulse rate, blood pressure, respiratory rate, blood oxygen level, and skin conductance. That information would be recorded into memory and tagged to a specific photo, just as the date, time, and other details are recorded as metadata for digital photos today.
    Why would someone want to take a selfie and tag it with vital signs?

    Magic Lantern have brought out firmware updates for the Canon 5D MkIII and the 7D. These updates bring you more dynamic range, in fact almost 14 stops worth:

    Always tragic when you break some of your camera gear, but what if that gear was worth $80,000?

    OUCH!!!!!!

    Want to capture a totally unique 360 degree panoramic photo. How about putting a camera into a ball that you can throw?
