Motion Magic’s Trippy Endless GIFs

A graphic designer going by the handle Motion Magic has mastered a new art form. Neither still photograph nor video, s/he has struck upon a mesmerizing balance between the two:

“When creating this effect on still images, I take great care in the small details that help to add a more realistic feeling in the movement,” the designer writes. “It’s as if the moment captured is brought back to life with an endless mesmerizing motion effect.” 

As for how s/he does it, s/he starts with a still image and transforms it using a program called Plotagraph Pro.

Shockingly Delicious Stop Motion Food

Give your eyeballs an incredible inedible treat with these odd animations by YellDesign. The Australian “Vine studio” has created five classic dishes using paper, stop motion, and creative interpretation of culinary tooling. 

The series is intended to show off the team’s sharp skill in short form Internet-friendly video, and they succeed handily. Like the now-classic work by PEZ (sorry, but the comparison is nearly necessary), these foodie shorts take bits from your standard desk life into a surreal and delicious new context. 

They’re what you might get if you skipped lunch to work but watched one too many auto-playing video recipe on Facebook: suddenly you’re trapped in a world where everything you touch is both stylish and edible.

I may have had to look Jaffle up, largely because I was confused by the feelings their melting paper cheese gave me. Despite the dissonance of obviously indigestible ingredients, these videos use color and form so convincingly I had to stop halfway through to go make lunch. 

Check out the rest of Yelldesign’s videos here, and give their impressive portfolio a perusal. Even if you don’t mind the paper cuts, there are plenty of non-ramen projects to get inspired by.

Photographer Captures The Power And Magic Of The Human Body In Motion And The Spirit Of Dance

1

Moscow-based photographer Alexander Yakovlev has an amazing talent for conveying the elegant, refined energy of dancers. His stunning studio portraits capture dancers mid-pose, exuding a grace and power that is fortified by the primarily black and white aesthetic and clean scene compositions. Yakovlev’s photography provides viewers the opportunity to fully appreciate the majesty of a moving human body frozen in time, each image radiating an intangible element that makes it hard to look away.

2

The artist, who had previously studied law in Russia, has found that his true passion lies in dance photography. With this series, known as The Mirages, the artist incorporates the simple element of flour, allowing his subjects to work with the fine powder in artistic ways. His lens captures each dancer’s movements as the bleached grains cling to and accentuate the lines of the human body, not to mention the way the flour floats in mid-air, mapping out the paths of motion of each limb. His collection is explosive and expressive, each image stunning in its own right, adding a visual sense of intensity within each frame.

Ask Engadget: best slow-motion camcorder for around $200?

Ask Engadget best slowmotion camcorder for around $200

We know you’ve got questions, and if you’re brave enough to ask the world for answers, then here’s the outlet to do so. This week’s Ask Engadget inquiry is from Philip, who wants to document his son’s baseball adventures. If you’re looking to ask one of your own, drop us a line at ask [at] engadget [dawt] com.

I’m looking for a HFR camcorder, as I like to record my son playing baseball and play it back in slow motion. The Kodak PlayFull looked like the solution, offering 120fps at 1,280 x 720 for $200, but then Kodak axed its camera businesses and it never made it to market. What other options, therefore, exist for 120fps video recording around a similar price bracket?

To be honest, slow-motion recording at such a low price is going to mean you’ll only be able to get pictures at dreadful resolutions. If you’re happy with footage at 640 x 480, then you could snag a Canon Powershot S100, but even that comes in at $319 from Amazon right now. It’s a shame your budget couldn’t stretch to $1,000, as we’re desperate to find out if JVC’s Procision is worth the hype. It’s at this point that we should probably turn this over to the Engadget community and get them to share their wisdom — so join in, HFR fans.

Red Motion mount eliminates shutter judder, we go eyes-on (video)

DNP  Red Motion Mount handson

Red announced its new Motion lens mount prior to opening its booth at NAB, and now we’ve had a chance to see this guy in action. The mount, which is compatible with the company’s Epic and Scarlet cameras, is meant to fix the CMOS rolling shutter problem. The Motion includes a liquid crystal shutter that’s placed in front of the main sensor and is timed to engage when the sensor is fully open. It also adds up to 8x neutral density, which can be enabled electronically through the camera UI with 1/100-stop precision. In a demo at Red’s NAB booth, the camera captured every flash of a strobe — without the new mount, some flashes would likely slip through the cracks. It’s set to ship for $4,500 in the fall (or possibly this summer), and will be available with Canon EF or PL mounts. You can see it in action today in the hands-on demo after the break.Gallery: Red Motion mount hands-on
