How many of you have ever left your lens cap on the camera and missed an important shot? (I’m guilty.)
The photographer in the above video had the misfortune of making that mistake in front of TV cameras for the whole world to see. I hope he still got a keeper or two after he figured out the malfunction.
Check out this film canister toilet paper dispenser. How funny is this thing?

Check out this fun video. “A group of Canon commandos is sent out on a mission. Their objective: to save an innocent girl who has been taken hostage by Nikon terrorists. Who will ultimately win this battle?”
The Sigma 200-500mm f/2.8 lens is a $26,000 beast of a lens. It’s also one that few photographers will ever hope to own. But that didn’t stop several people from reviewing the lens on Amazon with some rather humorous takes on what the lens has fictitiously done for them.
The sample images are pretty entertaining too…

The ArchRig system is a new rig and follow focus combo unit that looks to somewhat simplify on-the-fly focus adjustments when shooting HDSLR video.
Instead of a geared focus mechanism attached to the side of the lens, a metal arch goes over the top of the lens and use stop-pins to serve as focus marks for the lens lever. Additional focus marks can be made on the arch using a dry-erase marker.
