Canon 77D Photos and Specs Leaked

It seems that Canon will be breaking with tradition for an upcoming camera by releasing an entry-level model number that’s not a multiple of 10. A not-yet-announced Canon “77D” has appeared in leaked photos and specs.

The photos were published by Japanese camera rumor sites Digicame-info and Nokishita. The camera is likely positioned under the 80D.

Specs and features are rumored to include a deeply recessed hand grip, new buttons on the back, a new LCD display shape on top, 24.2MP, dual pixel AF, 45-point AF, 6fps burst, ISO 100 to 25600, a touch LCD, and Wi-Fi/Bluetooth.

If these images and details are genuine (and every indication is that they are), then we’ll likely be seeing the official announcement for this camera very, very soon.

These Wide-Angle Photos Capture an ‘Earth-Eye’ View of the World

7e3c1437028701-573238d9524d8

German photographer Christian Schmidt was commissioned last year to shoot a series of photos of the world, from the perspective of Earth itself.

The project, which was done for Toyota and the ad agency Saatchi & Saatchi Düsseldorf, required Schmidt to get creative with a wide angle lens. He shot all the photos with Phase One and Alpa SW cameras and a Leaf Aptus back using 23mm, 28mm and 35mm lenses — ultra wide focal lengths on medium format.

“There was a lot locationscouting before we finally started with taking the actual pictures,” Schmidt tells PetaPixel. He spent 3 weeks in Germany, Austria, Iceland, Tenerife, LaGomera, and the coast of France.

For some of the photos, Schmidt and his crew dug a bit into the ground to get the camera even lower.

The goal of the ad campaign was to show “a different, changed perspective,” Schmidt says. “The view from the earth itself and to visualize the sensitivity for the earth, nature and world we are living in.”

Here’s the Golden Ratio in Ansel Adams’ Photos

15675873_1812450465684204_7148315451688609708_o

Artists have long used the golden ratio as a guide for creating aesthetically pleasing art, as it’s believed that the human brain is hardwired to find the proportions inherently beautiful. Take a look at the work of legendary photographer Ansel Adams, and you may find the golden ratio tracing out many of their notable features.

Photographer Elliot McGucken says he first discovered the golden ratio in Ansel Adams’ work while viewing Adams’ public domain photographs that were created for the U.S. government.

15799970_10104133652044988_6761863236592886124_o

“Great artists such as Ansel Adams exalted their art with the golden ratio — the very same ratio present in the bones of our fingers and facial features,” McGucken tells PetaPixel. “Whether Ansel used the golden harmonies consciously or unconsciously may remain a mystery forever.”

“But such is the magic of the human creation of art, that it incorporates both conscious and unconscious use of mathematics and composition,” he continues. “While a sunflower naturally exalts the golden angle without thought, so too might the human artist exalt the golden harmonies without thinking about them.”

“And then, with the power of conscious mathematics, the human can capture and exalt nature beyond natural state, as the master photographer Ansel Adams did by imposing his sense of the golden harmonies, by which he himself was created, upon nature.”

Here are some more of Adams’ photos with the golden spiral overlaid by McGucken:

15 Photos of Abandoned Bedrooms I Found While Exploring

bedrooms_9

The bedroom is one of the most personal spaces in a house, hotel, or any other kind of building. It’s a place where my imagination can go wild. When I stand in an abandoned bedroom I’d like to think, “What happened here?.”

People used to sleep here, be intimate with each other, have discussions and laughter, and more. Sometimes even personal belongings have been left behind, for whatever reason. Since the bedroom is such a personal space and the memories and history of that space is slowly consumed by nature when it’s abandoned, I decided to create a set of some I’ve run into while exploring.

The most intriguing bedroom I ran into is the one in the former child hospital.

bedrooms_2

It’s been closed about 30 years ago and considering that still in a pretty good condition, besides the natural decay. Wind and rain made this a very creepy exploration since I kept on hearing the weirdest noises. The building had classrooms, a chapel and several bedrooms. Imagining how kids used to stay here and seeing the beds it intrigued me.

Here are some other bedrooms I’ve found in various abandoned places over the years:

In an abandoned French castle.
