Nikon School to Introduce Live Remote Shooting for Virtual Learning

Nikon has announced that it’ll soon be offering a new virtual photography Nikon School experience called “Live Remote Shooting” that invites photography enthusiasts to learn photography and shoot with Nikon from the comfort of their home.

The organization provides courses that cover a wide range of photography aspects, from understanding a camera and lenses, shooting fashion, landscapes, wildlife, videos, and more. Now, it’s gearing up to expand its educational services to include “Live Remote Shooting,” as first reported by Digital Camera World.

Unlike a traditional workshop, attendees don’t have to travel to a particular location and instead are guided by a Nikon School’s professional trainer via a video call. During this call, the participants can follow the action from the trainer’s point of view, discuss and view the in-camera setup in real-time, and take part by changing camera settings without leaving their desks.

This type of virtual training enables photographers to explore various locations, shoot set-ups, and even different models of equipment — so as long as it is Nikon brand — without the commitment to travel or rent the gear.

Here’s how the Live Remote Shooting system will work: the Nikon School trainer first tethers their camera to a laptop and starts a live stream through a video-hosting platform which enables students to join in. The trainer also shares their screen so that the students can control the tethered camera connected to the laptop.

This allows students to guide the trainer to compose the image while having full manual control over camera settings. Once captured, the images are displayed on the screen. Students can also request particular lenses or cameras, including those that are not yet available in store. After the live shoot has concluded, all captured RAW images are sent to the students so they can post-process them as they wish.

As Nikon leans into virtual education and develops a wide range of online courses, it opens up possibilities for photographers who are not able to travel but still want to enjoy the benefits of interactive learning, led by an experienced trainer.

Here’s a short video introducing Live Remote Shooting workshops:



This new workshop type is set to feature in Nikon School’s event and training line-up starting in October 2021. Nikon School also offers in-person workshops as well as other types of online courses. More information can be found on Nikon School’s website.

IKEA’s Sjömärke Goes Under Surfaces for Invisible Wireless Charging

IKEA’s Sjömärke Goes Under Surfaces for Invisible Wireless Charging

IKEA has been adding more function and style to the ever-expanding lineup of work-from-home furniture and accessories in its arsenal. The company’s new the Sjömärke wireless Qi charging pad will bring wireless charging to nearly any wood or plastic-based surface in a home.

According to the instruction manual, the device is designed to mount underneath surfaces for which you’d like to hide cables in order to keep the room looking neat and minimalist.

Unlike most other wireless charging stations, which require users to place their rechargeable devices on a matt or charge station, this seven-inch by three-inch charger hides beneath a table or shelf using double-sided adhesive strips (or screws should buyers want to make it permanent), creating an invisible wireless charging station.

IKEA recommends that the wood or plastic surfaces you choose to apply the wireless Qi charging station be between 0.31-0.87 inches (8-22mm) thick for the best performance.

For a visual guide on where to place your phone or tablet (and perhaps your camera, one day), IKEA has provided a transparent guide sticker to place on the table surface to align with where the symbol appears on the charging unit. Then just place the power-starved device on the sticker and start charging.

The pad comes with a six-foot power cable allowing for some flexible cable management that should reach most outlets and power bars. IKEA says the Sjömärke wireless Qi charger also comes with temperature and power monitoring so it won’t overheat against the wood or plastic surfaces.

The Verge reports that the charger runs Qi 1.2.4 and operates at the standard charge rate of 5W, meaning there aren’t any fancy fast charging or brand-specific improvements, so the main advantage of this charger is in its out-of-sight nature.

Here’s a short video introducing the Sjömärke and showing how it works:

The IKEA Sjömärke charging station should be an appealing new option for people who want to keep their workspace clean and uncluttered while having the convenience of wireless Qi charging. It will be available in IKEA stores and online starting October 2021 with a price tag of $40.
