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:

Beck, Hill's Panoramic Cloud Camera

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

Ernemann, Ermanox

Or when there is almost no body at all:

Nettel, Argus

Speaking of the long cameras:

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!

Tiranti, Summa Report

Or even four lenses shooting at the same time!

Nimslo, 3D Gold

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

Hofmans, Tropical 12-lens

Some people prefer shooting sequentially:

Briois, Thompson' Revolver

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

Konishi & Co, Machine-Gun Camera

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

Thornton Pickard, Mark III Hythe
