Cinema Lenses for Micro 4/3 Mounts
If you’ve been searching for cinema lenses for the Panasonic GH4 or Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera, this project is for you. It aims to create dedicated mount lenses for those cameras so you don’t have to mess with adapters or still photography lenses. The campaign wraps up on December 17.
High Speed Flash
The Vela One project aims to create the “fastest flash in the world” for high speed photography. Most of the examples on the campaign involve shooting things, but I can think of all sorts of creative ways to use a flash like this. Campaign ends December 18.
Remote Controlled Camera Stabilizer
It seems as though every other week there’s a new camera stabilizer coming out that promises to be the best ever. But this one has some neat twists. The killer feature is the remote operation. It’s not cheap–the real pledges start at $2740–but if your business is capturing unique action footage, this is worth taking a look at. Campaign ends December 12.
A Camera Backpack for the Ladies
F-Stop makes excellent backpacks, but most of their line–like most other camera backpacks out there, fit a male frame better than a female frame. So they’re aiming to do something about it. They’re launching their newest product, a camera backpack designed specifically for female frames, through Kickstarter. Campaign ends December 29.
A Road Less Traveled
Focusing on children with special needs, this coffee table book project aims “to bless the families that will be a part of this project with a photo session that celebrates where they are at on this adventure.” One of the things I like about this photo book is that it also gives the families of children with a special needs some beautiful professional photos to keep. The campaign wraps up December 24.
Revisiting the Battle of Waterloo
If you find the Napoleonic era fascinating–or maybe you’ve just visited the Waterloo battlefield–London-based photographer Sam Faulkner has been photographing re-enactors in full uniform. He’s hoping to turn these photos into a photo book. The project is timed to coincide with the 200th anniversary of the Battle. The project wraps up on December 8.
