Confessions of an Amateur Wildlife Photographer
It’s good to have a hobby, especially one that gets me outdoors again. Sitting in the same room, staring at the same screen, the days, weeks, and months merge into one another.

Why Lens Size Doesn't Really Matter
Do my pupils go large when I see a thicc lens practically dragging on the floor beside a too-cool-for-school photographer walking around with a smug smile on their face like they’re God’s gift to film?

Time-of-Flight (ToF) cameras are powerful embedded vision solutions that provide real-time depth measurement – predominantly for applications that require autonomous and guided navigation.
