File this under ‘D.I.Y.’ and also ‘awesome’. Photographer Alexey Kljatov took an old lens from a Russian Zenit camera, flipped it around backwards, and taped it to a crappy point and shoot camera. Based on that description you would expect some pretty mediocre results, but his macro images of these snowflakes speak for themselves.

Lots more images below!

Insanely Cool Invention of the Day: Dynamic Target Tracking Camera

Dynamic Target Tracking Camera

The future is CRAZY. Ishikawa Oku Lab, at the University of Tokyo, is developing a stationary observation system for high-speed flying objects. In plain English, they’re making an incredible camera that is able to track objects using a series of mirrors! I’m kinda dreading seeing this effect in every music video next year, but really excited to see what else they can do with this.
