Hazards of shooting for National Geographic
A matrix of various hazards faced by photographers on assignment for National Geographic has been published on a new web site created by a collective of the magazine's shooters. The long list of adverse events includes pursuit by crocodile, robbery, running out of air while diving under ice, and much, much more. The web site, called The Photo Society, doesn't clearly indicate its purpose, but it appears to be a platform for promoting the work and activities of its members, who have all shot at least one National Geographic feature story.

This is the first indication from officials of both the amount of money involved in this scandal and the possible involvement of criminal syndicates, which was first alleged in a recent story by a Japanese magazine that started this chain of events.

A component in the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope, the camera will be a 3.2-gigapixel device constructed of a mosaic of 189 CCD sensors, and it will be "roughly the size of a small car". Scientists hope it will shed light on dark matter and dark energy, and it will allow them to construct a "four-dimensional space-time landscape of color and motion" permitting anyone with a computer to "fly through the universe, zooming past objects a hundred million times fainter than can be observed with the unaided eye."

Review: Nikon's J1 and V1 cameras and 1 Nikkor lenses
If you're a working photographer using a Nikon digital SLR now, chances are the announcement of the J1 and V1 in September caught your attention briefly, you grumbled that the system wasn't built around a much bigger image sensor or wasn't more pro-oriented, and then you returned to wondering when the company will issue replacements for cameras like the D700 and D3S. Admittedly, my reaction was along those lines as well. While I admired the boldness of Nikon's move to create a new-from-the-ground-up camera system, I didn't see it as doing much for my own photography. That is, until I tried out the cameras and accompanying lenses. After a few weeks of shooting with Nikon 1 system gear, almost exclusively in my off-duty role as parent to two active boys, I've gone from being nonplussed about to singing the praises of Nikon's newest wares. At long last, my weekend carry-about camera has arrived and it's called the V1. Here's why.
