Would have been much better with some really dirty dishes in there - some flying food chunks and all.
rondhamalam: Bullsh*t !!!Certified??? big LoL
Black Box: Hasselblad is now officially a whore.
But a Swedish one; I hear they're the best.Volvo's on the skids too; I wonder what they will put their brand on?
Can I have Victor's voice on my message?
MarcusGR: A very complicated way to obtain a rather miserable result ... connecting a large, horizontal circle of cameras all around an action-scene would have provided a much more interesting result ... OK, it would have been more costly as well. But at least worth the effort !
Hope their professor gave them a decent grade for the effort.
Terrific! A truly nauseating perspective here on Earth for a fraction of the cost of actual going into outer space.
John Lennon would have loved this camera.
So the method of image or for that matter audio capture/recording is patentable? What a joke! I really had to check the date on my calendar to see that it wasn't April 1st; this story is right up there with some of NPR's April Fool's Day news parodies like exploding maple trees.Oh gee, was my avatar photographed on a white background? I'll cease and desist!
Panache Bauhaus minimalist, yes. But who wants to shell out that amount of cash for something that's going to be obsolete in 5 years? It's a digital camera.No doubt it will be the up front window dressing in the Dubai mall camera shop soon enough.
Jack Simpson: wow, I can just imagine attaching a long 645 lens to my Q7 :o
I have some old view camera lenses here you can have. Along with some cardboard tubes, black spray paint and duct tape may give you similar results.
I need some help understanding the sensor size and lens line up offered: If in fact these lenses are designed to cover the original 6X4.5 cm film area then they would be designed around a larger image circle and therefor be less than optimal? The sensor size seems to be about 73% of the 6X4.5 cm area making the lenses have a comparable magnification factor of about 1.4?If someone makes an 80mm TS lens for this, I'm all in.
smafdy: As usual, Pentax offers the highest quality and feature set in a camera format, at a comparably affordable price, and . . .
. . . some people have an immediate sh!t hemorrhage over it.
Everybody knows that it would have been much easier to just make this pocket-sized, with a mount that would accept any lens ever made, a pop-up 72" Octobox w/1600 WS internal flash, red-eye reduction, noise-free ISO 50 - 102400, high speed (2,000 fps) video capture, waterproof to 3,000 meters, and a few more essential features like a screw driver, bottle opener, scissors, a compartment to hold emergency gear (firestarter, fish hook and line, at minimum), and a secret message decoder.
Pentax just can't get it right.
You forgot to mention GPS.
Monochrom: Remember when no one could believe the price for the RED ONE to be true?Five years later and you get about the same specs for a quarter of that money.A shame that the lens you'll need will still cost you at least 10K...
You're referring (I'm assuming) to cine lenses?
SithTracy: There is a BFH in the shot... is that the tool?
Hammer, vise grips and duct tape - you need anything else?
The Gauss Goose
papa natas: Well, does the name Sally Mann ring a bell?
Yes. First thing I thought of - less stylized here though.
Peiasdf: He got himself an expensive movie prop. Ha ha
Probably owns some "original" Salvador Dalis' as well. Next stop on the list, Brooklyn, NY - "Bridge for sale, famous architect, some wear."Where's the wire viewfinder?
BGM: Gee I thought the camera was Nasa property and hence belongs to the US tax payers.
NASA, all caps.
100 exposure Ektachrome 64 on a cellophane thin Mylar base (acetate would become too brittle and break under the cold and vacuum) was no small feat either. Ah, Kodak could when it had to.
Robert Newman: While touring the LBJ Space Center in Houston several years ago with my young children, I perched my 10-year old son up on a ledge to get a better view of the Moon Rover on display including a NASA modified Hasselblad like the one mentioned on a short hinged arm. When we got ready to move on to another exhibit, I started to pick my son up and put him at floor level. I did not notice that he had braced himself with a foot on the metal arm holding the Hasselblad. A little push from his leg sent the camera crashing into the Moon Rover with a loud thud. We quickly moved on before some NASA employee could detain us. I don't think anything was broken, but we could have easily destroyed a very expensive artifact of the lunar missions.
From the mouth of babes file: Touring the staged Saturn V's various stages, my daughter commented that the LEM looked like a school project (tin foil and all)!
