‘Wanderlust’ YouTube series follows landscape photographers around the globe

WANDERLUST 4K Premiere! California Travel, Desert Landscape Photography & Location Scouting
YouTube photography celebrities Tony and Chelsea Northrup have kicked off Wanderlust, a new series dedicated to showing the life and adventures of travel photographers.

Filming for this series started back in 2014, but only now are Tony and Chelsea getting around to sharing the series. Four episodes have been shared so far, each of which were filmed at and named after a particular location or landmark: California, Mobius Arch, Alabama Hills, and Yosemite.

At each location, Tony and Chelsea meet up with other photographers and spend time capturing the beauty around them. Along the way, they showcase how they do it, what gear they’re using, and provide other helpful tidbits. Each new location is a new challenge for the duo.

Wanderlust strays away from Tony and Chelsea’s usual video approach, but in doing so it breaks open a whole new realm of exciting advice and adventures. The episodes, which average around 15 minutes in length, feel a bit like a docu-series you might find on The History Channel and The Discovery Channel — with a photography twist.

Only four episodes have been uploaded so far to the Wanderlust playlist, the first of which is above and the remaining three below. But there are many more in the queue, including locations around the globe. Future episodes will take place in Montana, Washington DC, Amsterdam, Paris, Istanbul, Machu Piccu, and more.

WL02! GHOST TOWNS, Landscape & Environmental Portrait Photography Tips (in an Abandoned Mine!)
WL03! Ansel Adams, Sunsets & Sunrises, & Tresspassing @ Alabama Hills
WL04! Sunrise Landscape & Wildlife Photography, YOSEMITE!

If you live in a scenic area you believe Tony and Chelsea would be interested in, they’re asking viewers to submit video auditions for upcoming episodes.

NASA is bringing 4K content to YouTube, and here’s a 20-second teaser
nasa is bringing 4k content to youtube and heres a 20 second teaser video

What better way to show off videos running at a whopping 3840 x 2160-pixel 4K resolution than with the vast emptiness of space? That's obviously NASA's thinking, as they've launched a new series of 4K videos on the ReelNASA channel with the 20-second clip you can see above. The forthcoming series of clips are going to be shot in smooth 60 frames-per-second quality as well.

You're not just going to need a speedy Internet connection to watch 4K without buffering — you're also going to need a fairly powerful computer too. The effort of displaying some 8 million pixels on screen 60 times every second can put a lot of strain on your machine's CPU and RAM, so don't be too surprised if you see glitches. Right now 4K is aimed more at the next generation of computers and cameras than current hardware.

Watch YouTube’s first 4K, 60FPS videos here
youtube 60fps 4k streaming 4kvideo

When YouTube increased its frame rate cap to include those videos that are shot at 60 frames per second, gamers, let's players and smooth video advocates everywhere rejoiced. The only thing missing was the ridiculous resolutions for early adopters, something that the streaming site is now investigating with a few specific videos.

To be able to see the videos in all their glory, you will need a display that is capable of handling ultra high definition resolutions up to 4k (3840 x 2160) and a hefty enough GPU that you can output at that detail at 60 frames per second. While desktop graphics cards shouldn't have a problem, systems with integrated graphics may struggle. You will also need a quick Internet connection, though the reason Youtube is now testing these videos is because the bandwidth required is now at least reasonable.
