Graava is a unique new video camera that uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) and built-in sensors to automatically edit your videos. Countless hours of video are shot every day and most of that footage goes to waste because most of us don’t have the time or the proper tools to edit it. Graava solves that problem because it was built to shoot seamlessly and edit the footage for us.

A few years back, while waiting for a beautiful but thoroughly flakey model in the parking lot of a restaurant near Liberty State Park, my boredom was interrupted by a black Lincoln Town Car that slipped suspiciously past me and parked a few spaces away. After several minutes, two men exited the sedan. They were wearing tuxedos and looked rather serious. The trunk lid popped open. Ignoring me completely, they rummaged through the trunk. One of the men removed his tux jacket and strapped on a large black holster. A moment later, the other did the same. I slid down in my seat, wondering if I was about to witness some weird reenactment of High Noon, right there in Jersey City.

Governmental regulations are a hot topic in the news these days, but rarely do they have an impact on the tools we use for photography. Recently, however, we discussed the growing nuisance—or possibly danger—to people or property caused by the ubiquitous “selfie stick.” A growing number of museums and other public venues have taken action— not only on inexpensive selfie sticks, but tripods, full-size monopods, and even umbrellas.

Inkodye Photo Printing Kit: This creative kit allows you to use wet darkroom photography techniques to create unique works of art on fabric, wood (or nearly any material). Simply paint on the liquid, then put a negative (or any object) on top of it and put it in the sun. The UV (or sunlight) develops it so there's no need for a darkroom. This starter kit gets you set up with everything you need to make a print: blue, black & purple dyes, four blank negatives, a fabric swatch, step-by-step video instructions, a test negative and detergent to stop the developing. You can use negatives to print pictures or use small objects—like plants, feathers, coins, toys, paper cut outs—to create silhouettes. The kit has a retail value of $39.
