A Camera Made Of Wood

Olympus Wood Camera

It’s a camera with a crunchy wooden shell and a gooey digital filling! I like the unique look, though I wish the camera looked less like a planchette. Either way it’d be pretty cool to see a larger SLR camera with a wood shell. I wonder how much more this weighs with the wood.

Anywho, Olympus just announced the camera today and they’re tightlipped about a release date.

The Leica D-Lux 3 Is Spiffy

The Leica D-Lux 3 has a 28-112 F2.8 Lens on it. It has a nice figure at 4.2 x 2.3 x 1.0 in, with a weight of 7.8 ounces with the li-ion battery.

Personally I love the classic look.. Plus you can operate the shutter speed and every other setting manually. You can also shoot in either JPEG or RAW. If it had an actual viewfinder this thing would be perfect.

No price or release date but it will probably be in the 700 dollar range.

Interview With The Director Of Photography At The New York Times

I recently read this interview with New York Times Assistant Editor of Photography, Michelle McNally.

Turns out that the NYT photo department is run on Apple hardware, among other interesting facts.

Overall an interesting read.

Camera Bags

First off we have this nice looking Kata R-103 backpack
Pretty compact and you can supposedly fit a laptop in it.
Kata is also known for making body armor so thats a plus.

After that we have Thinktank Bazooka Tripod Bag
Seems cool. Nice level of padding, plus it has shoulder straps and its easy to remove from the bag.
The president of the company was formally Lowepro’s Lead designer, so he has some credentials.

We also have the Crumpler 7 Million
Nice size and its all incognito.
