Heartography: Nikon created a pho-dog-grapher by attaching a heart rate triggered camera to a dog

Pin It

Grizzler became the first canine photographer with a little bit of help from Nikon – they developed a device that turns emotions into photographs by using the dog’s heart rate to trigger the camera. You can see some of the pictures taken by Grizzler in this video from Nikon Asia:

How much abuse can the Nikon D3s take?

Pin It

We have seen Nikon cameras falling off from a motorcycle, getting run over by a pickup truck, being submerged in mud, getting exposed to hail and water. The French website Pixelistes went a step further and published a 15 minutes video where they torture a Nikon D3s through mud, water, ice and fire. At the end, the camera was still […]
