Clever Dad Makes a Timelapse Showing His Daughter Aging 14-Years

Published on April 15, 2014 by in News

14 years compressed down into what feels like nothing

Frans Hofmeester is a Dutch filmmaker who has been capturing the life of his children since their birth. Every week, he’s recorded a short clip of them, creating an incredible timelapse of their growth, stretching from infancy, through childhood, and into teens. His most recent release is of his daughter, now 14. In a video that has gone viral, he compresses her entire life into just four minutes of footage.

Hofmeester has now made something of a habit of putting together these videos. His first one of his daughter went viral in 2012, and racked up more than 4 million views. He also released one in 2013 when she turned 13. His son was born in 2002, and the videos of him at ages 10 and 11 have been far less popular, with only around 100,000-150,000 views.

Hofmeester’s videos are an incredible look at the way we change and grow as people move through life—but at the same time, it’s still rather bizarre that he releases these every year, and each time they seem to go viral. Obviously people want to see more of the lives of these children, even if they’ve already seen 93% of it already.

New Gear: Metabones Speed Booster Hits Another Mount With OM to M43 Adapter

Published on April 15, 2014 by in News

The popular Speed Booster now works with classic Olympus glass

Ever since the Metabones Speed Booster was first announced, it’s been an incredibly hot commodity. The ability to adapt a lens onto a mirrorless body, but also give more light and a wider field of view than a traditional adapter, has made the Speed Booster much desired (and often imitated). Now Olympus aficionados will have another tool in their arsenal, thanks to a newly announced OM to Micro Four Thirds speed booster.

As with other versions of the Speed Booster, this one makes the lenses 0.71x wider than a standard adapter, and will also pull in an extra stop of light. This handy chart (from here) should give you a slightly better understanding of what that means for field of view, depth of field, and effective focal length.

Metabones adapters don’t run cheap however—this will set you back $400, if you can get your hands on one. But if you were a big OM shooter in the film days, this is a great way to bring that classic glass over without losing wide-angles or high speeds.
