Time-Lapse showing the accumulation of dirt on the sensor of the Nikon D600

Curiously, in the latest models of Nikon cameras, has been repeated incidence of which users are echoed in internet forums: these are the spots on the sensor, which begin to appear when the camera inevitably takes less 100 shots. This problem also seems that suffered the D7000 and D800. The main theory, unproven, but if accepted, is that there is a hole in the shutter that lets a few drops of lubricant carried by the camera mechanism. In the case of the D600, stains always appear in the upper left corner. The artist and amateur photographer Kyle Clements, quite skeptical of what he considered an urban legend, decided to prove it was false recording a time lapse that showed the evolution of these spots during the first shots of life of the camera.

Game Over: The Wii U is a Joke and It’s All Nintendo’s Fault

Last week, amidst all the “WHO WON E3?!?” talk, all eyes were on Sony and Microsoft. Whether you think that Sony won the next-gen console war already or that Microsoft will be victorious in the end, chances are good you probably weren’t thinking about Nintendo. The big N decided NOT to have an official E3 conference this year, instead opting for a pre-recorded Nintendo Direct video to show off upcoming Wii U and 3DS games. Clocking in at just about 41 minutes, there wasn’t a whole lot newly announced or shown off that we didn’t already know about. Historically Great, Recently Problematic The problem with Nintendo is that it doesn’t innovate.
