Tokyo Slow-Mo and Fast-Mo: Fun with the GH4 in Shibuya (VIDEO)

Slo-Mo & Fast-Mo Tokyo - AkihabaraNews.com

Panasonic's Lumix GH4 has Variable Frame Rate!
As any photographer knows, high-end cameras with VFR built-in allow for the rate of frames... to be like, you know, varied. And thats a good thing because non-variable frame rates aren't as cool. Good enough, yeah?

Well, no.
Actually, to really get a handle on what VFR means and why it's a super sexy camera feature, you'll have to jump over to Senior Contributor Nayalan's GH4 review, but for now, this:

Shibuya Slow- and Fast-Mo
Nayalan's flagship review of Panasonic's flagship camera includes some great video and fantastic photos for camera heads, but this little bonus is more for general consumption; it's something special.

Suffice it to say, if you know Tokyo's Shibuya ward, this will give you new perspective; and if you do not, you'll either long to visit or run away scared (too many humans!). Enjoy, and maybe like... turn it on for background at a party. 

We're totally doing that.

SCENE IN TOKYO: Shiodome Caretta Choreographed Illumination
It’s anyone’s guess how many millions do so each year: photographers work to get the shots, lovers make illumination viewing part of their date, entire families brave the cold, and even dorky tech Editors make the trip. The annual Shiodome Caretta display is considered one of the finest, and as you’ll see below, the why is no surprise.

Oriental Motor has developed the αSTEP AZ Series of closed-loop stepping motor & Driver packages, which contain its patented mechanical absolute sensor, the ABZO Sensor.

"The ABZO Sensor in the motor is able to record the current position of the motor in the sensor itself. So, it enables high-precision positioning and homing without a home sensor or a limit sensor."

Yoriko Takahashi - March 28, 2014

With Thanko's Night-Vision Scope Camera, you can see clearly something that you cannot usually see in the dark.

There is a 7-level adjustable infrared mode to see objects in dark places. A 3X power telescope and 2X digital zoom lens enable you to observe distant objects. Also, you are able to shoot still/moving images with it so that it might be fun to use it on your friends - scare them at night-time and record their reaction!

It is also usable in the day time as well by using the infrared cut filter attached to the body.
 

Thanko has just released a miniature action camera that you can attach it anywhere you want. Attach it to a thing like a radio-controlled plane, glasses, helmet, and even your dog's collar, and make creative motion movies.

Whether we call them Christmas Lights, Holiday Decorations, or simply, as do the Japanese, Illumination, there’s no doubt that Japan both loves to play the game and is particularly good at it.
