World's Most Expensive Camera Lens!

That's right folks the most expensive lens ever just sold for $2,064,500. The lens is a German Leica SPO-Telyt-R 1:5.6/1600mm lens. It was huge. So large it weighs 132 lbs. and needs its' own tripod. Of course this lens was custom made. It should be no surprise that Leica was the manufacturer. After all, Leica is also the maker of the world's most expensive camera. A Leica O-series which sold for $2.79 million. Leica has long been a big competitor for beautiful cameras and glass lenses. Some of the best out there. To read more about this lens click here.

Camera that recognizes your face by name!


We all know that technology has come a long way, and continues to keep evolving. This most definitely includes camera technology. One of the most recent developments is a camera called Facedeals. This camera takes your photo when you enter an establishment, recognizes your face, then checks you in on Facebook. Is technology going to far? Are we getting to the point where you can't even go some place with privacy? These are all questions we need to think about. With our advanced cell phones we are constantly connected to the world. You can be anywhere and just pop on Facebook without a computer. I value my privacy, and don't always want the world to know what I am doing. Whether this camera actually becomes available to the public is yet to be seen. Currently it is still undergoing testing, but it surely exists. For the full story on it CLICK HERE.

Packaging




I don't always get to see how my photos end up being used on the packaging I sometimes shoot for. As a photographer you usually shoot the product samples, then the images get to the creative director, and then off to the design team. So the end result is not something I always get to see. In this case I did. Here is some final packaging for DCI with images I shot. Keep an eye out for them in a store near you!
