Top 15 Unusual Cameras

Postby diser » Thu Mar 06, 2008 11:12 pm

With some cameras it's hard to tell where lens ends and body starts:

Brinkert, Spy-Camera


Some cameras have a huge lens and a huge body. Go figure what's more important here:

Image
Beck, Hill's Panoramic Cloud Camera


When body is smaller than the lens we know what's important for sure:

Image
Ernemann, Ermanox


Or when there is almost no body at all:

Image
Nettel, Argus


Speaking of the long cameras:

Image
Voigtlander, Daguerreotype-camera


And even longer:

Goerz-C.P., Hunting Ango


But enough with the boring one-lens cameras. Let's check stereo cameras:

Bloch Leon, Stereo Physiograph


With this camera we all know what was in the designer's mind:

Compagnie Francaise de Photographie, Photosphere


Anyway, two lens are boring too. How about three? Here is the new meaning to the "interchangeable lens":

Krasnogorsk, Zenit B


If three lens option is not enough for you, let's get four!

Image
Tiranti, Summa Report


Or even four lenses shooting at the same time!

Image
Nimslo, 3D Gold


And again, if shooting through four lenses at the same time is not enough, try 12 photos at the same time:

Image
Hofmans, Tropical 12-lens


Some people prefer shooting sequentially:

Image
Briois, Thompson' Revolver


But who needs a revolver camera if you can get a machine-gun camera?

Image
Konishi & Co, Machine-Gun Camera


And now we are talking! How about 300mm machine gun camera? Enemies are fleeing!
