As a professional publishing platform for wall calendars, Calvendo offers a unique service: creative users can design their own calendars online, and sell them on Amazon and other retail platforms. Before release, each calendar goes through a quality assessment process to ensure that products are fit to go to market. The service is free of charge, and Calvendo self-publishers get royalties for each calendar copy sold. The company’s UK division now has almost 1100 registered users and around 4500 calendars. “We’re very happy that so many English-language photographers and artists are already creating and publishing calendars with us, “ says Calvendo Managing Director Hans-Joachim Jauch. “We see a similarly successful development as when we initially launched in Germany in 2012 and are excited about our platform’s development for the upcoming calendar season.”

Modulo Camera Promises Unlimited Dynamic Range

A group of researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have proposed a camera that can take a perfect picture, even in extremely contrasty lighting conditions. Called a “modulo camera,” this device designed to never overexpose any part of a photograph, enabling single-capture HDR imaging. Where "traditional" HDR-capable cameras use multiple normal images to create one final high-dynamic-range photograph, the modulo camera only requires one shot to create an HDR image. The new solution gets around the limited well capacity of conventional sensors by resetting the sensor capacitors whenever the "well" gets full, and uses an inverse modulo algorithm to calculate how much light the reset sensors took in. This algorithm recovers a much larger dynamic range. For example, if a certain camera sensor can record eight bits of information, then when those eight bits are filled, the capacitor will be reset to zero. The number of resets is recovered by the algorithm, which then calculates the relative brightness of each area of the photo. Interested readers are encouraged to visit the project's website and read the technical paper published by the researchers.
