Watch A Leopard Steal A GoPro Camera

Published on April 24, 2014 by in News

Apparently GoPros are like catnip to wild animals

There’s something about the GoPro that seems to make it a natural target of the attentions of animals. We’ve seen countless animals steal the things. But for some reason, it’s big cats that seem to go particularly bonkers over the cameras, like this lion, or these tigers. Today we have another such situation, this time a leopard and its cub deciding that a GoPro would be an excellent toy to run off with.

The video was shot at the MalaMala Game Reserve in South Africa. Ranger Roan Ravenhill set up the GoPro on a wooden stand to try and get some footage of nearby wildlife, and the curious (though famously reclusive) leopards opted to come investigate.

Eventually, after batting it around a little, then carrying it off, the mother and cub got bored and dropped it, and Ravehill was able to reclaim the camera.

Speaking to the Telegraph, he said:

“I was about 60 meters behind the camera watching the animals walk towards the camera.

I was amazed, the female marked the camera, like if it belonged to her, by rubbing up and down on it and the interaction with the cub was amazing, the camera did not disturb them at all.”

Which sounds exactly like a house cat, just much, much bigger.

How a Photographer Achieved an Impressive Product Shoot Using Only an iPhone and One Light

Published on April 24, 2014 by in News

This iPhone photo shoot stands up to medium format (at web res, anyway)

The whole “can you tell which photo was taken with a smartphone vs a professional camera” narrative is pretty well played out at this point. We’re all aware of the fact that in the right conditions, a good smartphone camera (particularly the iPhone) can take some pretty stunning photos. But this shoot by Alex Koloskov of Photigy is perhaps an exemplar of the genre, pitting an iPhone not just against a DLSR, but a Hasselblad H1 with Leaf Aptus digital back.

No one is saying that an iPhone is a better camera than a medium format, professional camera. But, especially when viewed at web resolution, you’d be hard pressed to spot the difference without some extremely close observations. In fact, the what seems to give away the iPhone in this case is the aliased edges on the glass, and the sharp transitions to overblown highlights in the ice cubes.

But honestly, if you saw that as an ad on its own, you wouldn’t think it was shot with a smartphone. For the setup, Koloskov used the app 645 Pro, which gives comparatively more manual controls than most other iPhone apps, alongside a $400 light.
