Game Boy Camera Canon EF Mount — Bastiaan Ekeler

I designed and built a Canon EF Mount for my Game Boy Camera. The GBC has a sensor size of about 3.6mm² which seems equivalent to a 1/4″ sensor (Wikipedia). This gives the GBC a crop factor of about 10.81. With my 70-200 f4 mounted on a 1.4x extender, this gives me a max equivalent focal distance of about 200×1.4×10.81=3,026.8mm.

Hasselblad X1D: A Medium Format MVP? – PhotoShelter Blog

In software design, there is a concept called the Minimum Viable Product (MVP). Instead of building a fully fledged app or website that might incorrectly anticipate a user’s need, the MVP model suggests that product designers should start with small set of features and use feedback to iterate quickly towards a more perfect product. It’s supposed to be a faster, cheaper and smarter way to develop a product.

The mechanism provided an automated way to position a flash to provide indirect light. The resulting images were a dramatic step up from direct flash photography.

After Unsane, Steven Soderbergh says he’ll likely shoot all his future movies on iPhones [Video] | 9to5Mac

“I’d have to have a pretty good reason not to be thinking about that […] There’s a philosophical obstacle a lot of people have about the size of the capture device. I don’t have that problem. I look at this as potentially one of the most liberating experiences that I’ve ever had as a filmmaker, and that I continue having. The gets that I felt moment to moment were so significant that this is, to me, a new chapter.”
