“Now we know who the Mac users are in the neighborhood”
Thats how I was greeted by the Fedex guy this morning. Apparently he’s been delivering quite a few Leopard bundles this morning.
Check out this awesome ceramic pinhole camera created by Steve Irvine.
“It is made of stoneware, fired to 1,300 degrees C. (2,350 F.) It has a matte black glaze on the inside. Overall, it measures h 22.5 x w 20 x 20.5 cm. on the outside. It’s designed to take a 4 x 5 inch piece of photo paper. The negative holder on the inside is made from three strips of black weather stripping.”
Heres the example shot.
Yes, that’s a Leica gun camera. Looks like a blunderbuss to me. No idea when these were produced though I’d guess early 60’s at the latest.
This actually isn’t the first camera gun I’ve seen, though its the first with such a large stock. From what I’ve read they actually worked rather well to prevent shake but the idea never caught on. Probably a bugger to do street photography with this thing…
Anywho, Tamarkin is auctioning off this beauty late January 07 on ebay.

In case you didn’t notice the shirt is glowing. Rather spiffy, no?
They’re made by the aptly named Lumigram and they sell pillows, purses, and hair extensions as well as the aforementioned shirts. The hair extensions average approximately 180 € which roughly translates to 237.58$. So the shirts probably aren’t cheap. Yet they’re so shiny…
The Lumigram catalog says the shirts should average 10 hours on a full charge so at least your luminescence would persevere throughout the cold dark night.
It’s the fashionable solar powered Day For Night dress! It’s made out of interconnected white circuit boards and RGB LEDs, plus its powered by the sun! Here is a closeup view of each of the tiles…
It looks a bit… scratchy. Anywho, the cool thing is you can program it to display different colors and symbols and anything else you can think of.
Now this would be entertaining…
I wonder what the lights above his elbows are for though. Plus if you get bored rolling on your stomach you can roll over on your back!
Theoretically you can find out more on his site, Buggy Rollin, but the site design is an excellent example of why you don’t create your entire website in Flash.
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.
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.
