"This is the first camera that allows photographers to create a 3D image with a single exposure at the push of a button."
Huh? Stereo cameras were in heavy use during the Civil War.
Ever hear of the Fuji W1, W3, or Stereo Realist?
Perhaps better to say with one lens...Oh, wait, that been done before, too...
Press Correspondent: This is a fake record. I don't know what "antique cameras" this guy owns, pinhole, Polaroids, digicams, or smartphones, or may be he owns a thousand copies of the same model, but in my book "antique camera" stands for film. The world record for having the largest number of film cameras belongs to Richard LaRiviere (USA) who owns 894 DIFFERENT film cameras that he has collected since 1960.
Better read the Amazon reviews about this card before purchase...
...and put a 600 watt heater/fuser inside a combustible enclosure? Right.....I'm sure U/L will give it's full approval....
Better idea..12 cameras IN THE BALL!
Next thing you know, 3D printers will be printing more 3D printers!
Sounds similar to the early mechanical Television systems that used a single neon bulb and a rotating perforated disc for the display, no?
it photo: Welcome to the beginning of the end of photography. Cameras will merge with videocameras and phones and PC's. Buying a Nikon you will first need to install Windows (with a code of course), then login with your username (or if you let your wife use it she will login with her own password and have her own personalized menus) . Then you will install your lenses, then the filters and finally the... camera strap (because it will also have something proprietary built-in). Built-in GPS and WiFi will transmit photos to the cloud. This is not photography, this is COMPUTING!
Lenses ARE computers...OPTICAL computers...always have been.
I predicted a time-based sensor months ago...
Kinda looks like a Hassy, only smaller, no?
Hey, no pinhole cam site?
Ah, now the cam's in focus, and the face isn't....musta been done with an FX...
Out-of-focus thumb, lens and camera...
Must have been using FX....
What REALLY is going to happen, is Kodak's R&D on improvement to analog photography will cease. Film will still be available at ever increasing cost, but things certainly ain't gonna get much better from here on out. And production quality will probably suffer in the hands of a new owner.
Meanwhile, digital photography will keep advancing, and we really haven't seen anything yet!
Strange that this article does not mention the STEREO capabilities of these cameras. I wonder if they shift the camera to produce a stereo pair, or capture two images simultaneously. Anyone know?
Cameras with "Operating Sysyems"...how 'bout more control over than cam itself?
Something like CHKD for Canons...
I get good results on a Nikon D300 using PB4 bellows unit (never been topped) and enlarging lenses, which are available for a song these days on eBay.
Film just died....
And what about the "Processing" of a single capture that goes on inside the cam? Is that not also "misrepresentation"? What about RAW processing outside the Cam?
Heck, what about "exposing for the shadows and developing for the highlights", ain't THAT similar, too??
One issue I have with current sensor applications is that every pixel is exposed for a predetermined "shutter open" time, and the light value is reported for every pixel, just like we used film! Now we should be able to do "exposure" differently.
To have an in-camera HDR would be relatively simple if only the camera makers would allow the shutter to be open long enough so that each pixel achieves some predetermined "exposure point", then simply report the TIME to that exposure point for each pixel. You could then obtain very high dynamic ranges, although "shutter open" times may be longish. The light values would then be reported as times rather than levels.
I predict sensors will be used in this manner someday....
