Always wanted to see one of these, but haven't yet. Seen a few circumzenithal arcs, but not a circumhorizontal arc.

They are quite a sight to see. Hope you're able to see one, one day!

I forgot about this thread; I've actually got something to post on here for once! :p

 

IMG_1540 - Copy.jpg IMG_1589 - Copy.jpg 

IMG_1693 - Copy.jpg IMG_1842 - Copy.jpg

 

These are from a photoshoot I did with my ex-girlfriend last month; her first foray into modelling, and I helped her build up a portfolio (started up one of my own, too, although my focus is still on the music industry). She came prepared with a suitcase full of outfits, we just drove to a local park near where I live and started shooting. The rest of the shots that we're using in our portfolios are here (besides a few crops, they're untouched): http://imgur.com/a/gdJ1v

 

And for those who want the technical details, I used a Canon EOS 1200D on auto (don't judge me, I'm still a noob at this) with the flash disabled, the standard EFS 18-55mm lens that came with it, and for the close-up eye shot at the end of the album, an EF 100mm macro lens, all supported with a Gorillapod SLR.

I think this describes the weather the past few days here. It's been hazy, hot, and humid.

While the photos in this thread a all good, the one thing that gets me, is the way that some people put their watermark on the images.

 

-=fantômas=- - you put your watermark/copyright down at the bottom of your images, but if anyone wanted to use them they can just crop that part out.  I have seen it quite a lot on this and other sites, but if you don't want your images used without credit you need to put the watermark right through the middle of the image.  Why don#t more photographers do this?

The watermark does not bother me.  I don't care. 

 

The watermark can tell you who took the photos.   I don't care if the watermark gets cropped out or erased ..

 

If I don't want the photos to be spread all over the internet, then the watermark can be placed all over the photos instead of placing it in the one of the corners.

 

If you find out who took it and not sure who it is, you can look it up and learn about the photographer or a company.

 

 

But don't forget that some people may have the tools to erase the watermark off the photos if placed in the middle or across the photo.

      GoPro announces Hero 10 Black with HyperSmooth 5.3K at 60 FPS, new processor, and more
      by Karthik Mudaliar

      GoPro has announced Hero 10 Black, its latest action camera. The device features a new processor that allows it to capture videos up to 5.3K at 60 FPS while 4K videos can be shot at 120 FPS so that you can show off your cool slow-mo shots. It can also upload your videos to the cloud while being charged although, for that, you would need a GoPro subscription.

      The new processor is called GP2 that's replacing the GP1 processors used in GoPro cameras ever since after the Hero 6 Black. The improved processor also allows it to be more responsive, including the touchscreen and the overall interface. GoPro is a market leader in action cams for quite a long time now and much of its competition comes not from other action cams, but smartphones. This is why GoPro has added a smartphone-like approach to how the device processes photos and videos.

      For instance, there's now a lot of processing like the new local tone mapping algorithm that's available in both videos and photos. Local tone mapping enhances the contrast in areas that have low details so that it appears with more texture. There's also a significant boost in noise reduction in videos. The Hero Black 10 also includes a new hydrophobic lens cover that sheds off the water, which is great for people using the device in and around the water.

      The Hero Black 10 also has great photo improvements. Although the image sensor is the same as that on its predecessor, the image resolution bumps up to 23 MP from 20 MP before. You can also pull individual 19.6 MP frames from your 5.3K videos. With this technique, you get the still in JPG format and not RAW, but it is still good enough for uploading on social media.

      As mentioned before, the automatic cloud backup feature will work only for those with a GoPro subscription. Although, if you get the subscription that's available at $49.99 a year, you will get the camera at just $399.98 which is a hundred dollars less than the retail price without the subscription at $499.99.

      Apple warns that vibrations from a motorcycle engine may damage iPhone cameras
      by Usama Jawad

      A couple of weeks ago, Apple announced a free repairs program for iPhone 12 devices affected by sound issues with the receiver. Now, the Cupertino tech giant has issued an advisory (thanks, MacRumors) for another issue, but it will not be offering free repairs this time.

      The problem this time around deals with high amplitude vibrations, such as those coming from a powerful motorcycle engine, affecting the iPhone camera setup. Essentially, numerous iPhone models offer camera-focused technologies such as optical image stabilization (OIS) and closed-loop autofocus (AF), enabling users to take sharp shots while countering effects of gravity and vibrations.

      Apple says that while OIS and closed-loop AF are "designed for durability", extended exposure to high-amplitude vibrations at certain frequencies will eventually lead to reduced quality in images and videos. Apple further explains that:

      It's unclear why Apple suddenly decided to issue an advisory about this matter given that OIS or closed-loop AF have been available in multiple iPhone models since the iPhone 6s Plus. It's likely that there has been an uptick in similar cases reported by customers. Apple has emphasized that the issue is common across "many" consumer electronics with these camera technologies and is not specific to the iPhone.

      Motorola launches in-car AI video system for police forces
      by Paul Hill



      Motorola has introduced a new AI-enabled in-car video system designed to be used by law enforcement. The system, dubbed M500, has been designed to enhance awareness and safety and to build trust through the communities which the police serve. With the M500, a video recording begins as soon as someone enters the back of a police car which should ensure any incidents are caught on tape if they’re needed for inspection later on.

      Commenting on the new technology, Mahesh Saptharishi, senior vice president and chief technology officer, Software Enterprise & Mobile Video at Motorola Solutions, said:

      To build trust further, the M500 has been designed to be transparent, inclusive, and fair. It includes built-in guardrails, controls, and audit logs that help promote privacy and encourage responsible use. Additionally, the M500 is able to pair with the V300 body-worn cameras to record events from multiple angles which can give those responsible for reviewing footage a better idea of what’s going on. It also works with Motorola’s CommandCentral to send footage to HQ in real-time.

      The M500 is available for pre-order now, to find out more head over to Motorola’s website.

      Oppo showcases its next-gen under-display selfie camera technology
      by Chandrakant Isi



      Chinese smartphone maker Oppo has taken the wraps off its latest under-display camera technology for mobile phones. It showcased a prototype featuring a camera concealed under a specially tuned AMOLED display. It even shared a selfie camera sample taken from this prototype.

      As per the subsidiary of BBK electronics, this tech is a culmination of years of development in the hardware and software departments. Oppo claims that thanks to its new "transparent screen wiring material" combined with precision manufacturing, users can barely notice any quality difference in the area that sits above the camera.

      Oppo seems to have addressed the image quality issues that come with the under-display camera arrangement. Its US-based Research Institutes has come up with AI algorithms to minimize artifacts such as glare and blurriness in photographs. On top of that, the manufacturer claims it has managed to shrink the pixel size to ensure consistent density across the display including the camera area.



      For years, delivering a full-screen display has been a tricky task for most smartphone brands. Given the importance of a front-facing camera, manufacturers tend to settle for a distracting notch or punch-hole to accommodate a camera. The pop-up camera mechanism enables manufacturers to deliver a full-screen experience but it isn't an ideal solution due to its reliability issues in the long run. With today's demonstration from Oppo, it seems an elegant solution isn't too far away.

      The company is planning on further optimizing its under-display camera tech. Currently, there's no word on when this technology will break cover on Oppo's smartphones. At this point, ZTE Axon 30 is the only commercially available smartphone with under-display camera technology.
