"The Art of Flight": A Phantom Flex High-Speed Camera System Highlight

I hope you'll indulge a brief divergence from 'pure' embedded vision topics, because I just can't resist sharing a highlight clip from the upcoming snowboarding film The Art Of Flight with you. For one thing, the footage was shot with a precursor to the Vision Research Phantom camera systems that I showcased a week ago.

Website Analytics: Exceedingly Useful Webcam Analysis "Tricks"

I spent a few days at BDTI's Oakland office this week, as you already know if you saw last night's writeup on the interview with UC Berkeley's Jitendra Malik. Among other things, I had a face-to-face meeting with the folks who work on the Embedded Vision Alliance website. Stay tuned for more news on the site improvement front, as our ideas transform into implementations.

1 Million FPS: What Could You Do With Those Sort Of Image Capture Specs?

Not so very long ago, I remember how pleased I was to learn that my first digital SLR, Pentax's *ist D, was capable of 2.7 fps burst capture speeds (for up-to-5 frame JPG bursts). How time flies; Pentax's latest high-end "35mm" DSLR, the K-5, does 7 fps (for up to 22 JPGs or 8 RAWs) or 2 fps (unlimited JPGs) sustained still frame captures if the storage media write speeds can keep up, along with capturing 25 fps 1080p video.
