Where Can I Buy Film?

I buy all my film-related things at B+H Photo. It’s in NYC so shipping can be an issue, but it’s free over $99 USD.  They have a huge selection new and used equipment.

Selfies with the universe?


Instead of a taking a selfie, use your phone to solve the mysteries of the universe.

Turn your phone into a particle ray detector! Two physicists who work at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland are creating an app that transforms smart phones into particle ray detectors.

Read about their project.

Join the project!

#Physics not selfies (can we make that a thing?)
