Moab’s Juniper Baryta Rag 305 is a double-weight, 100% cotton inkjet paper with a “true baryta base,” which refers build-wise to the inclusion of barium sulfate in the mix but aesthetics-wise to having the look and feel of traditional silver-based darkroom printing papers. While that descriptive reference might be more poetic than experiential for many folks these days, it is a good thing. Its weight, richness and tonal depth separate it from many RC-type inkjet papers, plus it has one more laudable characteristic: lack of OBAs (optical brightening agents), those brighteners used in many papers that help give them a stark, cold white base coat.

Our Shutterbug Photo of the Day is a stunning image from Douglas Croft.

We can expect Virtual Reality videos to be the next big advancement in Internet entertainment. Always ahead of the curve, Google yesterday introduced its Jump camera rig—a tool designed to help filmmakers create innovative 360-degree VR videos for YouTube that can be viewed on Google’s Cardboard VR headset. The Jump is a circular VR frame that uses 16 GoPro Hero4 cameras working in unison and set vertically (side by side) along the outer edge of the ring.

If you’ve ever taken something apart to make it better, or enjoyed building something from Lego bricks, you’re going to love the Platypod Pro. It’s the world’s most compact base for a tripod head, according to its label, but that’s selling it short—it’s really much cooler than that.
