Fayetteville traffic: Lackluster report shows increase in traffic crashes, serious wrecks despite red light camera program

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WTVD) — The city of Fayetteville’s Red Light Camera Program is garnering very little results in their latest report, seeing an increase in traffic crashes and the seriousness of those wrecks.

City staff gathered the latest numbers for city council to look over at a future work session meeting; Councilwoman Yvonne Kinston requested the latest data.

Since 2015, when the program first started, at least 12 major intersections have had red light cameras installed. Some of those intersections include: Skibo Road at Morganton Road, Ramsey Street at Law Road and Bragg Boulevard at Cain Road. In that time, violators have received a $100 fine.

Despite city leaders’ wishes to see this program drop traffic crash numbers, the report shows an increase in nearly every metric.

The report collects data from the last two years at the 12 to 13 intersection spots. City officials said they’ve seen 30 more

Panasonic launches video-focused live-event box camera

Panasonic has announced a new Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera designed for live event streaming, vlogging, mounting to drones and more. The box-shaped Lumix DC-BGH1 doesn’t have a viewfinder or rear display panel, but is compatible with an extensive lens lineup and capable of Cinema 4K and 10-bit video recording.

The BGH1’s light and durable aluminum and magnesium alloy body is home to a 10.2-megapixel Live MOS sensor and Venus image processing engine combination, making it a similar proposition to the Lumix GH5S. Indeed it also features the Dual Native ISO technology found in that camera, which chooses between two separate ISO circuits for optimal low noise output. Light sensitivity tops out at ISO51,200.

Eye, face and body detection of human subjects gets joined by head detection, with “advanced deep learning technology” able to track fast-moving animals too.

There’s no mention of stills photography for the BGH1 at all, with

Deadly Snake Captured From Home After Found Slithering Under Aquarium, Rescue Caught On Camera

A deadly snake was captured after it was found under an aquarium inside a home in Australia earlier this month.

Jack Hogan with Snake Catcher Northern Rivers 24/7  arrived at the home after receiving information that a snake was seen slithering under the aquarium.

“We received a call for a greenish Snake that was seen slithering under this Bangalow residents’ Aquarium!” he wrote in a Facebook post.

However, Hogan was shocked after he stumbled upon the venomous Eastern Brown Snake while attempting to capture the reptile.

“I suspected the Snake to be a harmless Common Tree Snake as we see a lot of them in the area. After poking around with my hands and waiving my big head around for a while I stumbled upon this gorgeous Eastern Brown Snake all curled up behind the stereo!!” he wrote in the post.

Video of the rescue showed the snake catcher moving

Many things to many people: Panasonic launches DC-BGH1 modular ‘box’ camera: Digital Photography Review

Panasonic has announced a new Micro Four Thirds video camera, the Lumix DC-BGH1. This box-style camera is built around a 10.2MP Live MOS sensor. Based on specs, the BGH1 might appear to be essentially a Panasonic GH5S minus the screen and controls, and to some degree, it is. Still, Panasonic has included several features that are rather interesting.

The aluminum and magnesium alloy body is relatively small, at 93mm per side and 78mm deep (3.66 x 3.07 inches). Notably, the camera lacks both a viewfinder and a screen but includes eleven 1/4″-20 sockets for mounting accessories or a tripod. An integrated fan and internal heat dispersion system allow for unlimited record times, and a hot shoe mount on top of the camera can be used to mount a microphone or Panasonic’s DMW-XLR1 XLR adapter.

Camera controls include a dial with a four-way controller on top, several dedicated function buttons and

Hidden camera’s hugging tiger wins wildlife photo award

The embrace by Sergey Gorshkov, Russia
Sergey Gorshkov’s winning WPY image is called The Embrace

To photograph one of rarest creatures on Earth you have to be incredibly skilled and remarkably lucky.

But Sergey Gorshkov is clearly both – as demonstrated by his stunning picture of a Siberian, or Amur, tiger deep in the forests of Russia’s Far East.

The image has just won him the title of Wildlife Photographer of the Year.

The female tiger is seen embracing a tree, rubbing herself up against the bark to leave her scent and mark territory in Leopard National Park.

“The lighting, the colours, the texture – it’s like an oil painting,” says WPY chair of judges Roz Kidman-Cox.

“It’s almost as if the tiger is part of the forest. Her tail blends with the roots of the tree. The two are one,” she told BBC News.

All the more extraordinary is that this is a camera-trap image.

Apple

As a professional photographer, I’ve been blown away by how the iPhone 11 Pro has been able to replace my DSLR on photo shoots. But Apple just introduced the iPhone 12 lineup, which includes the iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, and the camera tech is even better this time around. (Here’s everything Apple announced at the October event.) The iPhone 12 Pro Max’s camera updates especially, both in hardware and software, have already got me buzzing about going shooting with this thing. Here’s why I’m so excited.

More zoom with the 2.5x telephoto lens

I love the telephoto zoom lens on the iPhone 11 Pro, but at only 2x, it doesn’t always provide quite the level of zoom I want. I often find myself digitally zooming in further to get the exact composition I want. The iPhone
