I’m in Phuket at the moment and there’s no problems here at all that I can see. In fact it’s the start of the Thai new year (songkran) tomorrow and there’s a great party atmosphere, everyones out on the street with waterpistols soaking each other with ice water, which is more fun than it sounds, remember it’s around 30 degrees here at the moment!

I’d post some pictures, but I don’t dare take any gadgets outside, you have no choice but get VERY wet!

Plenoptic Camera – amazing!

Someone’s come up with a camera that you can refocus AFTER you’ve taken the image! Clever stuff!

Cool photo tools…

Dunno why I keep finding funky photo stuff, I don’t even have a camera, but these look pretty good fun…

AutoStitch takes a bundle of images and automatically stitches them together to form a larger panorama. This can be a real pain to do by hand, and the results look amazing! Could have been real handy for the eBay work, eh Xyn? ;)

…and…

Image stacker that does exactly what it says on the tin! It takes a bunch of images and stacks and blends them, allowing for nice night photos that appear to have massively long exposure times. Could probably be done in PS just as easily, but hey…nice idea anyway :)

FilmLoop – desktop Flickr?

Could be cool if you’re into photography, kind of like a desktop version of Flickr where your images appear on the desktop of anyone who’s subscribed to your photo stream….
