Welcome to The Fotobug podcast 158! In recent photography news, a new case called Vitrima is in the works, which would enable GoPro action cameras to record 3D video. A Chinese company wants to turn your Android phone into a 3D camera with a USB-C dongle designed to work with a mobile device's front or rear-facing camera. Canon USA has announced seven new photography courses that will form the beginning of a new program called Canon Online Learning. A team at Harvard University has designed a 'metalens', around 100,000 times thinner than an equivalent glass lens. Watch the podcast for more information!
Jim just returned from his 4th trip to Iceland with a terrific group of photographers. Featured on this podcast is a highlight reel of the trip featuring some of the images captured. This year, we completely circled the entire country and only failed to get to the north east since the roads were closed to normal traffic due to heavy snowfall. Iceland is a wonderfully diverse and photogenic country and should be on your bucket list of places to visit! In addition to the fantastic landscapes, our driver/guide, Magnus Johannesson, recently completed a documentary called The Man Who Shrunk his Ecological Footprint. The documentary follows his brother, Siggi, who analyzes his current ecological footprint and then makes an effort to reduce it. We feature a teaser reel on the current podcast, more information can be found at https://manwhoshrunk.com/.
The current documentary is in Icelandic, but an English language version will be made available and we will update our listeners when the final documentary is available.
