The Canon Store has a clearance sale on Powershot cameras. Prices get from $44.99 to $119.99. Grab one before they’re gone.
Do you have a broken Canon Nifty-Fifty (EF 50mm f/1.8) lying around and maybe want a tilt-shift lens for cheap?
Photographer Witono Halim bought a broken Nifty-Fifty and transformed it in a tilt-shift lens. While the result doesn’t exactly look beautiful it works surprisingly well. The video below gives an idea of the kind of footage you can get.[via Witono’s Freestyle via ExposureGuide via PetaPixel]

Edit: I don not know why but the video turned to private. It’s a pity. At least I made a screenshot (below)
World-wide pre-order links after the break.
First watch the short video above, then head over to PetaPixel to get the background, they got the news and no one will mediate you the idea and tell you the issue better. I am too tired today. If you want let me know in the comment section. For me it is a “no comment” thing :-/
Well, I give you a spoiler: It appears that Canon took inspiration for the video from a real director, who uses Sony gear.
