The same can be said about the wisdom of veteran filmmakers. It’s helpful to have a framework on how to approach the…

Hvordan brygges øl?

Samfunnets viktigste drikk.

Jeg regner med at du har kommet hit, fordi du er interesert i øl og vet ganske godt hva det er. Men for ordens skyld kan jeg raskt oppsumere at, Øl er en samlebetegnelse på ulike drikker som har det til felles at det lages av vann, gjær, malt (spiret og tørket korn) og humle. Ølets historie går minst 6000 år tilbake i tiden, til det 5. årtusen fvt., noe som gjør øl…

Mind-Blowing ‘Game of Thrones’ Theory

Mind-Blowing ‘Game of Thrones’ Theory

Note: The following post contains spoilers for anyone who hasn’t seen seasons 1-4 of HBO’s Game of Thrones. It also makes references to material found only in the A Song of Ice and Fire books. This is only a theory, so there is no guarantee that this is correct.

Just when you thought you had the Westeros family tree all mapped out, Game of Thrones fans are here to throw you for a loop, again.

Pentax Film Duplicator Overview

Pentax Film Duplicator Overview

A film duplicator accessory was among the prototypes on display by Pentax at this year’s CP+ show.  This bellows-like setup makes it easy to digitize film photos and slides using a DSLR without having to use any other external hardware or software.

The Fermi Paradox - Wait But Why

Everyone feels something when they’re in a really good starry place on a really good starry night and they look up and see this:

Some people stick with the traditional, feeling struck by the epic beauty or blown away by the insane scale of the universe. Personally, I go for the old “existential meltdown followed by acting weird for the next half hour.” But everyone feels something.Physicist…

Dear Pentax: Never Build a “Full Frame” Camera – Columns – Pentax Camera Forums
