Olloclip Studio for IPhone 6 Plus And IPhone 6s Plus

We came across an Olloclip lens a couple of years ago and we were amazed at the difference that a single detachable lens could produce via the iPhone’s camera. So, when this came out, we were obviously excited to share it with you. Presenting the Olloclip Studio for iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6S Plus.

The vintage photography experts at Lomography are back on Kickstarter with a new art lens set. Based on a design from the 1830s, the convertible Neptune system opens up a new world of visual possibilities for modern photographers — letting you create exceptionally sharp images with strong, saturated colors, or soften them with delicate bokeh effects.

Michael Crawford’s Phantom + “blinde” eye

(he wore several contact lenses to achieve this look - on the “blinde” side a white and a blue one, and on the “good” side a dark brown one. The level of whiteness and pupil varies in the photos, so it looks like he experimented with it)

Rogue Trader era marines from White Dwarf 123, March 1990.

I’ve long wondered (simple maths suggests for 27.5 years) where those variant armour models came from and went to. I don’t think they were released so it makes me wonder if they were just concept ideas for what became Mk8 armour. The Ultramarine with the inverted colours has a fantastic helmet design with that prominent lens being reminiscent of the Sardaukar from the Lynch version of Dune.
