The Avedis Zildjian Company started making cymbals in 1623 in Constantinople, part of the former Ottoman Empire. Now based in Massachusetts, Zildjian is the largest maker of cymbals in the world. Paul Francis is Zildjian's Cymbal Master, making sure that every crash comes out perfect before it gets into the hands of drummers around the world.
K2 on the border of China and Pakistan is the second-tallest mountain in the world and one of the most dangerous — around one in every four of the people who reach the summit don't make it back. Polish skier Andrzej Bargiel successfully summited K2, and then skied back down over 28,000 feet, making him the first person in the world to do so.
Fitted with 16 camera modules, the Light L16 Camera can replace that bulky DSLR. The compact camera uses multiple lenses and sensors with varying focal lengths to capture high-resolution images. Although relatively small — the whole thing weighs less than a pound and can fit in your back pocket — it's still equipped with a zoom range of 28-150mm. By capturing multiple perspectives at different exposure values, you can adjust the focus or enlarge your photo once the shot is taken. It's finished off with a five-inch HD touchscreen that features on-camera adjustments allowing users to edit their pictures and transfer them to their desktops while still on location.

Dan is no stranger to explosives, having trained in the British Army as an explosive ordnance tech, and along with the pros at the school, captured some of their best slow-motion film yet.
