Recent unseasonably warm temperatures, brought to Greenland by a heat wave that smashed records across Europe a week before, have accelerated the melting of the ice sheet that covers 82 percent of the country, releasing water at record rates. On Thursday alone, an estimated 12.5 billion tons of meltwater flowed into the ocean, which would be the highest single-day total since 1950, according to Ted Scambos, a senior researcher at the National Snow and Ice Data Center, quoted in The Washington Post. Snow and ice melt every summer in Greenland, and this heat wave was an anomalous event, but climatologists [...]

Development on Adobe's mobile video editing platform, Rush, has been quiet since the launch of the product in October of 2018. When it was first announced, it looked and felt like an evolution of Premiere on a new codebase that would not only be faster than the current Premiere, in theory, but also could be translated to a host of devices all running the same interface. At launch, this same interface was visible on both iPad and the desktop computer. Today marks the first major feature update to Rush since its announcement... [...]

Human eyes are able to see only a fraction of the light in our universe. This spectrum of light that we can see is called the visible spectrum and it is underpinned by our eyes having three different types of cones, which are sensitive to short, medium and long wavelengths of light. These wavelengths correspond roughly to red, green and blue light which means that all of the colors we see are comprised of red, green and blue wavelengths of light. How does this relate to space photography? As you may know, many of the photos we see... [...]

We don't often post special news articles on specific camera deals, but this one just rolled in and we wanted IR readers to hear about it it quickly. We've loved the Olympus E-M10 line of cameras from the beginning, and now the latest version is selling for a body-only price of just $449! This model isn't weather-sealed like its higher-end big brother E-M5 and E-M1 lines, but it does sport 5-axis image stabilization and shoots 4K video, just to name a few tricks up its proverbial sleeve. And while the megapixel count remains at... [...]
