San Francisco-Oakland Bridge: LEDs, Cool Photo

"Check Out the San Francisco Bay Lights in 4K Glory"
Christina Bonnington, Gadget Lab, Wired (April 1, 2013)

"The Golden Gate Bridge has long overshadowed its grayer, plainer companion, the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. That's changed, just a bit, now that the Bay Lights illuminate 'the other bridge' with the glow of 25,000 glittering LEDs.

"We've been lucky enough to see them each night since they first lit up March 5, and now you can enjoy them too - in stunning 4K definition.

"The video was shot with a RED Epic attached to Gyro-Stabilized Systems' C520, a portable five-axis gyro-stabilized camera platform. It's the first such system that is fully upgradable, interchangeable, and can accommodate 4K camera tech...."

It's a pretty cool photo. The copy in this post was cropped to fit the Lemming's format.

What's really impressive is what it took to get the video: for that you'll have to read the Wired article.

Normally, the Lemming would ramble on about LEDs, San Francisco, or maybe bridges. It's been one of those weeks, though, and the Lemming's taking a break.

Today's News! Some of it, anyway

Actually, some of yesterday's news may be here. Or maybe last week's.
The software and science stuff might still be interesting, though. Or not.
The Lemming thinks it's interesting: Your experience may vary.
