…Ryan Cashman is talented?

Ryan Cashman

Ryan Cashman also has a lot of time.

By taking tons of 20-30 second long exposures using his DSLR, and then stringing them together in a time lapse/stop motion fashion, he was able to create a fantastic video using nothing more than a green LED keychain, a camera, and time.

…Cars and People is fascinating?

Time-lapse photography can make anything exponentially more exciting, so it should come as no surprise that the seemingly boring subject of a parking lot takes on a life of its own when you can watch 24 hours flash by in just over a minute.

Called Cars and People, it was shot using a Canon Digital Rebel XT SLR camera with 15-second intervals between shots at the parking lot on Bay and Edward in Toronto.

…Flickr knows what camera you are using?

Flickr Cameras

Flickr is doing a little Web 2.0 style data mining with their Camera Finder service, a Yahoo! Shopping sponsored look at what cameras the users of Flickr are shooting with. Featuring all cameras, point and shoot cameras, and cameraphones, the graphs “show the number of Flickr members who have uploaded at least one photo with a particular camera on a given day over the last year”. Though the data is only available for cameras that Flickr can autodetect (about 2/3rds of them), it’s definitely an interesting new way of rating products. The Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT and PowerShot SD400 (my camera of choice) lead their respective categories, while Sony Ericsson dominates the cameraphone market. If you’re in the market for a new camera, this is definitely a service to keep an eye on.
